What you're seeing is normal. Premiere does offer capture preview of HDV.
Welcome to the forum.
Like i said once its captured its fine, it looks great infact!
This is the "end-game." As Jim points out, the HD Capture in PrPro has some limitations. The lack of a preview is one of them.
ah ok, I guess I'm just gonna have to get used to it then..
Thanks for answering my question so fast!
Do give HDVSplit a go. Most folk really love it.
Now, I have to admit that maybe it is what PrPro should be, regarding Capture, but I've seen some other programs get bought by larger corps, and then disappear. Adobe did that some years ago with a great font utility, FontMinder, and it just disappeared, as Adobe kept focusing on ATM. Now, ATM is history (unless one squirreled away copies of the NT language versions, like I did), but I still wish that Adobe would release an updated Adobe FontMinder...
