Any internal card must have drivers provided by the vendor that are specifically designed to work with Premiere, be that Elements or P-Pro
I used to use a Pinnacle DV500 card with Premiere 6 and the Pinnacle driver was specifically designed to be a "bridge" between the card's hardware and Premiere
I suggest you use the software that came with the card to capture your video signal, and then use PreElements to edit the resulting files
IF, that is, the card's software will even create a file that is compatible with PreElements
What kind of files does the card software create?
Thanks for your reply. I wasn't aware of the Premiere specific driver issue.
I really don't know what kind of files it produces, as I haven't used it for capture before, just as a tv card. I will give the stock software a try though, then bring it into PE.
Better yet, don't capture through that Hauppage unit if you plan to edit in Premiere Elements. It's not a good marriage.
Better to use one of the DV bridges we recommend in our FAQs. They produce DV-AVI files that will load right into the program!
I am not sure how much use I will have for the capture functionality, as most things come to me in a digital format. Hence me trying to sidestep the video in through my tv card. I like the look and price of those units though, so I will definitely keep them in mind.
