I don't really need to do this but I'm wondering if it is possible to capture video from my Canon Rebel T3i directly to my PC using Premiere Pro CS6.
I'm sort of guessing its not, partly because I tried and failed and also because the T3i has no firewire connectivity but I thought I'd ask.
Capture is only via Firewire
For cameras with memory cards or hard drives, you connect via USB and use Windows Explorer to copy the folder to your data drive

If the camera has HDMI, you could capture a live feed by adding third party hardware from AJA or Blackmagic. I'm not sure this would be wise (or even work) for prerecorded video, though.
