I recently unplugged form the matrix (mac world) and decided to come back MS.
I just bought CS5.5 (and recently installed the CS6 upgrade.
I have a problem when capturing footage. In the capture window I have no video.
I have a message that reads something like "video playback on the device monitor."
The video DOES import but I can not use the capture screen as a remote. I find that extremely annoying.
I am running a dell XPS (laptop currently /desktop in being updated now.)
I am using firewire to import.
The only 2-camcorders I tried to use for import were Sony HDR-HC3 and an HC5
(it may have been an HC7)
Any wisdom? I USED TO be able to see the video with my HC3 but something is not working properly.
In CS6 you should have preview.
In CS5.5 there is no preview but there is a fix.
Close Premiere Pro.
Copy/paste the mc_dec_mp2v.dll file from: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5\Plibs to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5\
Restart Premiere Pro.
Simple yet, effective THANK YOU!
