PrP capture screen will control activities on my Canon Vixia HV30 but will not show realtime video. The screen says "Previewing on camera" in about six languages. iMovie capture, Final Cut capture, Adobe On Location capture all seem to work as they are supposed to. Is there a fix for this?
It's just the way it works.
If you were like me and using Premiere for many years of SD Footage then you were surprised when you saw this message. When dealing with HDV footage and capturing it displays that. I don't know the technical reasons, but perhaps it's to reduce another load on the CPU by playing back RT the HD being captured.
Here is the reference: Capture / Device Control
If you are on CS6 there is preview in the capture window, I certainly have for hdv footage.
If you are on CS5 you are out of luck, for CS5.5 there is a fix.
Copy mc_dec_mp2v.dll from C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5\Plibs
and paste it here C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5\
