I'm doing a big capture project with 20 or so Mini-DV tapes. I have a Sony HVR-M15AU on loan to me that I'm using for capture.
If I connect the deck to an external monitor via component out, I can view date information (YMMDD & TIME) of a specific tape. However, I don't have access to any kind of external monitor right now and I was hoping to start the capture process tonight. I need the date information so I can make note of it and eventually include it in the file naming convention I'll be applying to the tapes.
Is there anyway I can view this information in Premiere?
There is not.
That is very, very sad. Are there any plugins available? Or some kind of a 3rd party software that I can use to simply view the date? If so, I'd use it to view the date and then carry out the capture in Premiere.
DVDate will show you the data, but only after capture, I believe. I'm not aware of any plug-ins that can do this.
