    What's the best way to record live webcam video with Premiere CS6?

    ChosenMedia

      We are producing an online news show and will interview guests from all over the country. We will have them phone in using Skype and or their IPad. We would then do all of the post in Premiere. We would like to capture guest video from either Skype or an iPad using Premiere. Any suggestions for camera/software combinations will be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

          I would not attempt to use Premiere Pro to capture live video. There are better ways.

           

          Perhaps a screen capture utility that records to a lossless codec that is easily edited in Premiere Pro.

           

          I use a free program (CamStudio-Recorder) but there are others. Since I have the drive space, I record to the Lagarith Lossless Codec. Premiere Pro cuts through it like a hot knife through butter.

           

          If quality is not the issue, then there are other codecs you can use that are lossy, but still not too bad.
