I am running Premiere CS6 on Win7 Ultimate 64bit. My Handycam is connected via Firewire PCI board. Premiere recognizes the camera, and I am able to use the capture window to move the tape FW and rewind, but when I attempt to play the tape, Premiere bombs and goes to the desktop. I had selected standard capture NTSC since the Handycam isn't HD. I am able to capture the same video without any problems in Vegas and Pinnacle. Is it the settings? Any help would be appreciated!
I have a Sony Handy Cam also and I reverted to using a DUO Pro Stick. It's easier to record video/pics to the memory card. Then you can simply plug your USB cable to the camera and drag/drop the video files to your computer and from there you can open/import them into Premiere.
Yes, you are correct! I am able to control the camcorder to forward and rewind the tape in capture mode, but as soon as I hit the play button to capture, CS6 crashes and returns to the desktop. My handycam is a model DCP-PC109-NTSC.
I had the earlier PC100 for many years and did occasionally have problems with capture whenever I upgraded my PC (I have built my own for the last 20 years). Premiere has had issues with certain chipsets on PCI boards for a few years, also the PCI card has to have the correct drivers installed and probably your card let Windows install its own drivers. The link that Ann posted should have the information to solve your problem, I have looked though it and it uses the same process that I used on my old Win7 PC when a new PCI Firewire card did not work after I fitted it. If this does not work for you then a new card PCI with Texas chipset may solve your problem
Yes, I did set the driver to legacy with no change in behavior, except I can no longer forward or rewind the tape from the capture window. I do get a mesaage in the capture window that the camera settings and project settings differ! I still get the message that Premiere has stopped working, and the computer goes to the desktop.
