Premiere can capture via a firewire connection
from tapes recorded in either DV of HDV format.
Premiere Pro / Capturing DV or HDV video
Thank you for your reply, Joe. But the production assistant in Italy is asking:
"We are handing over the Varicam AJ-HDC27FP
tapes to begin to process them. And I have been asked how we want it compressed."
I don't know how to answer this because I've never captured tape to Premier. I've only used files. My capture settings are greyed out in Premier (probably because I don't have a deck hooked up). I would like the files at the highest resolution. Should she just capture "native" via firewire from the camera? I am continuing to research this further. It is very hard to find tape workflow instructions these days!
