DV capture quality in CS3 vs CS6

Feb 2, 2013 10:49 AM

Tags: #cs3 #premiere #cs6

I am capturing Hi8 & Digital8 footage via firewire. I recently purchased Premiere CS6 but I have an older computer that is running CS3. I would like to dedicate that PC to capturing several hundred hours of footage rather than tying up my current PC. Is there any quality difference capturing DV in CS3 vs CS6?

Thanks

David

    If you are using a device such as sold at http://www.grassvalley.com/products/converters for your Hi8 you are doing the best you can with the source you have

    The model 55 is both one way only (to the computer) AND is not as good with older tapes

     

    The higher models are, from what I have read, better with old tapes

     

    If your tapes have "dropouts" you may need to use http://windv.mourek.cz/ or http://www.exsate.com/products/dvcapture/ since I **think** PPro stops capturing when there is a signal drop

    DV AVI type 2 with 48khz sound is as good as it gets

     

    I rarely use it these days, unless I run across an old VHS tape in a box and I feel like restarting into my dual-boot WinXP, but I have a Pinnacle DV500 card... which only works with the very old Premiere 6x (hence the dual boot to be able to use WinXP)

     

    The DV AVI files that come out of the DV500 digitizing process are as I describe above... and which edit perfectly in ALL version of Premiere
