I'm trying to capture (many) MiniDV tapes to my (ahem) hard drive. Yes, I know I need external RAIDS.
However, not being able to capture more than 3 clips seems a bit limited.
I'm capturing from a Sony GV-D1000 via RCA/S-vid to Blackmagic Intensity Shuttle Thunderbolt. Mac is great on processor, not so great on HD speed. Added a 1 TB Seagate Backup Plus for Mac as a temporary storage spot for rendered clips.
What I don't get is that every clip has been captured only after World War III with settings in the Capture window and with the project. Each time seems to have been a different scenario. At this point, I can't recreate these...
What I do know:
1. Any setting throughout Premiere Pro CC that offers the choice of Blackmagic has to be Blackmagic per their manual. Did all that.
2. Latest trick: When I'm in the Capture window, the pulldown audio menus no longer show Blackmagic as an option.
Happy to supply more specifics as needed. Thanks from a self-taught newbie.
Not so much.
Well, perhaps a Blackmagic user will come along to help. I don't quite understand why you would reduce the quality of MiniDV through the RCA connections instead of capturing using Firewire (i.LINK). Unless you don't have a firewire port on your computer. But maybe you have access to a desktop that you could use temporarily and just capture to the external drive?
