Premier Elements 8 unable to detect HI8 video camera

Apr 24, 2013 10:55 AM

I am running windows 8 and have just loaded in Adobe Premiere Elements 8 and the program does not recognize my Media source which is a Sony HI8 Video camera Model CCD-TRV328 NTSC (Which is a 8mm video tape recorder). I am using Dazzle DVC100 as an interface.Is there any way I can get Elements 8 to recognize my media source>>>>

    Am I correct that the Sony is an analog tape camera, and not Digital 8?


    If so, then it will be the Dazzle, that PrE will need to see. Unfortunately, many users have never gotten the Dazzle units to function well. Once, Dazzle was sold by Pinnacle (might still be by Pinnacle's parent company, AVID), and usually bundled with some form of Pinnacle Studio - even when using that, many users never got the Dazzles to work. See the Pinnacle/AVID forums, to see if that has gotten better.


    I would do the capture through the Pinnacle/AVID software, if you got that, and Save the captured files to DV-AVI Type II, if the Pinnacle/AVID can do that. Then, Import that into PrE for editing.


    Good luck,

    Or, if you can't get the Dazzle to work, look at
