Capture Program for Premier Pro

Mar 20, 2013 4:54 PM

I have CS5 Production Premium and two PCs.  I would like to use the 6-core for editing while using the 4-core for editing support, e.g. capture, while I am editing.  Unfortunately,  I am informed that I cannot use one licence for CS5 upgrade from CS4 on 2 computers at the same time, even if I also retained C4.  So to capture while editing, I need a separate capture program.


What capture program is compatible with Premier Pro CS5?

    What is the source, that you wish to Capture from?


    Also, your situation might be one where a Creative Cloud subscription would be worth it. I would also explore that option, as well, say one CC lic. for the CS, and another just for PrPro.


    Good luck,

    If by capture you mean via Firewire from a tape camera (some people do use the wrong term) then read below


    I have NOT used either, but many say to try these for SD capture or


    I have NOT used it, but many say to try this for HDV capture

    Scenalyzer was always highly regarded for mini-DV capture.  Whilst development has stopped, it is still available from



    and it is now free!

    Hi John,


    Who told you that you couldn't install on two machines, and have you tried it? My understanding has always been that Adobe does allow installation on two machines with one license. Technically, I believe the intent is one desktop and one laptop, for office and mobile use and not at the same time. But if you are still only editing on one at a time (not two editors using simultaneously) it should be fine. It really should not matter at all if your Premiere was an upgrade or new purchase, a license is a license and the EULA should be the same.


    Maybe Kevin from Adobe can chime in here?

    My understanding is that you can have Premiere installed on two machines, but you cannot use both at the same time.  It was recently stated by an Adobe employee on this forum that where upgrade versions have been purchased, this limit of two installations at one time applied across the range of versions that you have purchased.

    >automatic downloads of the 64 bit versions, not available on the discs,


    If you are talking about things like templates and menus and such... these discuss those files... I think only for CS6

    There are TWO links for missing Content... PPro & Encore basic and Encore extra ssing.html
