I do live captures for video assist with PP5.5 and asked for the ability for markers to be added on the fly while capturing a while back. Just wondering if this has been added to PP6 or not. Use it all the time with Avid MC, and find it difficult to use PP without it in my work. If not can you make subclips on the fly as you can in MC yet?
Am I right in thinking that OnLocation has not made it into the CS6 suite?
I currently capture live TX camera feeds from a PPU and mark them on the fly with comments so that I can review content before the edit.
Can anyone tell me whether this facility will still be available in CS6 - whether in OnLocation or another facility?
Is there a reason this has not been added yet? It would make PP closer to the feature set of Avid MC and also make it a lot more useable in my situation, not that I'm being selfish or anything.....But really, it would seem to be a useful feature for many people out there that play through a tape, or do live caps and want to put some kind of reference marker in on the fly.
OnLocation is not in Creative Suite 6.
If you use the features in OnLocation, then you should continue to keep the version that you now use installed. There's no problem at all with keeping components of CS5.5 or CS5 or CS4 installed on a system even after you've upgraded to CS6 for Premiere Pro, etc.

Asked for this way back in 5.0 Guess there aren't enough people that do live caps to get anyones attention. Great feature in Avid MC, and one that limits PP's functionality for me. I would think that anyone that captures live, or from tape would benefit from the ability to place markers in the capture at points of interest. For me, I use them to show when another pass is made during a long take so I can get to that part of the take quickly.
The markers in Premiere Pro leave a lot to be desired. I totally agree about marking on capture but what's even more important to me is being able to see your markers supered on screen. I usually plow through my footage and set markers for takes I like or client likes and add in my comments. I can fine stuff super quick just using previous and next marker hot keys and find this indespensable to my workflow. I've whined about this repeatedly to adobe and I'm extremely dissappointed its still not a feature especially when every NLE I've ever used has had it. Even the the earliest versions of avid, fcp and smoke. What gives adobe?
What's new with markers in CS6:
I am in complete agreement with TKane31. I have been requesting on the fly markers since CS4, and noone seems to listen. Would EVERYONE that sees the value of this please speak up and request on the fly markers? There can't be only two of us. Also it doesn't do any good to say they are in On Location 5.5, especially if it is discontinued. If you could do it there, why not in PP? I need to capture, with markers, and play back at off-speed some times and you can't do that in On Location. Besides, if you then have to edit you have to open PP and edit from there, not an efficient solution. Why is Adobe so resistant to this?
> Why is Adobe so resistant to this?
It's not that we're resistant to one thing or another. Rather, we have finite time and other resources for developing and testing features for each release, and we need to prioritize based on several factors---including how many customers are requesting a specific change.
So, if you want to cast your vote, please do so:

Wellll...with the proliferation of tapeless media, the need to 'capture' is growing less and less. That's probably why OnLocation was dropped in favor of Prelude. And it doesn't bode well for adding more folks who want this feature.
Yeah, the next step is no live capture at all. They dropped stop motion capture long ago, another great feature. Some people actually still shoot film if you can believe that!

I do, and would love to shoot that myself.
But even there, it'll be telecined using very expensive equipment that no Premiere Pro user is likely to own, and stored on a hard drive as files that still would not need to be 'captured'.
