FCP has a very useful check box that allows you to turn off audio monitoring during capture, so you can listen to other things whilst the batch captures. Is there any way to do this in PP? If not, how can I make a feature request?
I'm using PP CS6.
Thanks for any help.
Thanks Computer Novice. Unfortunately the only options available to me when I click 'edit' are to change capture settings to HDV, DV or my Matrox MXO2. No other options at all. I'm on a Mac with CS6. Any ideas?
Don't know if the Mac OS offers similar, but when capturing on a PC, I bring up the "Audio Mixer" tool in Windows and it shows a separate slider for PREMIERE and I just bring that down to silence so I can watch NetFlix or whatever without hearing the capture audio. Does not affect the volume of what I am capturing in Premiere, just mutes it out to my speakers.
And that's exactly what I would expect to see, but I have no 'settings' option in that window. It's nuts and I can't begin to understand. It must be a Mac thing. Any Mac users got any ideas?
The only other solution I can offer is to go to "edit" "preferences" then select "playback". Under playback set the default audio device to your capturing device instead of the adobe desktop audio. This will allow you capture but not have to listen to whats being captured. However once it's done capturing you'll have to set it back to adobe desktop audio otherwise you can't hear what you're editing in your timeline.
I'm just using my computers built in firewire port to capture from a DVC-Pro deck and also my older HDV camera. Although I rarely use them now that I have newer cameras that are totally file based.
That setting has been there for me in every version of PP since it became Premiere Pro (and possibly before), regardless of computer or camera used for capture.
(Note that a device must be hooked up and active for the option to appear.)
I think it must be related to the specific device set up. It seems ridiculous that it's not available on every combination, as surely it's just a PP switch (as is the case in FCP7) and nothing to do with the source at all. Anyway, I need to make a feature request pronto, anyone know the link?
Thanks everyone for your input. If anyone does come up with a definitive answer or explanation, that would be great!
