It depends on what you're using for source video. What model of camcorder is your video coming from and what format and resolution is it?
Version 3 is a very early version of the program, and there is pretty much only support for tape-based miniDV and HDv camcorder video. AVCHD and smartphone video was pretty much unheard of then.
So if you're using video from something other than a tape-based digital camcorder, it's probably not going to work well.
thanks, i captured my video from an old vhs tape a non-prerecorded material, it captured and i can see it in the timeline, etc., and i have been able to edit, but again, problems with rendering. the neat video software appears to work great in the non-rendering mode. and, before rendering the video has a skipping movement in preview. do i have the wrong software for this project?
What device did you use to capture it and what codec did it use to capture the video?
Open one of the clips in G Spot or Media Info and report the resolution, frame rate and audio and video codecs it displays.
As I've said, version 3 is not terribly versatile. So unless your digitizer was an ADS Pyro or Canopus AVDC capturing over a FireWire connection, it did not likely capture it in a format Premiere Elemetns 3 can work with.
i capture the video thru a usb device in it's software, then transfered/captured to version 3, and i believe at dv format. as you can see i am a full rookie at this whole thing. before doing any editing especially with neat video, everything looked good as far as being able to see the original video. i went to neat video to get rid of the video noise that a vhs tape would produce. this is a very important video and i would like to be able to clean it up and product the best video as much as possible. thanks
