    prem 8.0.1 does not recognise DV camera

    omni60

      Adobe Premier Elements 4.0 and 8.0.1

      Windows XP SP3, AMD 5600+, 4G RAM, 1394 connection

      NVidea GeForce GT 240 video card, latest driver updates

      Sony TRV-240 Dig8 Camera

      Sony camera is recognised by Windows My Computer, AVS Video Recorder and Windows Media Encoder with capture capability.

      Premier only recognises camera as "Microsoft DV Camera and VCR" and does not capture.

      How to get Premier to recognise camera and capture video?

          Premiere Elements 4 or 8.0/8.0.1 on Windows XP 32 bit.....

           

          Are you set up with a FireWire (iLINK) connection for this DV Data capture?

           

          From the screenshot, it appears that you only have 77 GB free space at the save location for the DV data capture. Can you point the Captured Video and Captured Audio to another save location with more free hard drive space?

           

          Is this a "it worked before but not now" or "it never worked before" for Premiere Elements 4 or 8.0/8.0.1?

           

          As background if needed, please review the following Adobe document on Capture

          http://help.adobe.com/fr_FR/premiereelements/using/WS5CDA0F91-60F1-4b79-ABF6-E9E75F498DB2. html#WS2AF26FB5-4C63-4c46-9DB3-7249558F6528

          Although it targets newer versions, the principles should be applicable to Premiere Elements 4 and 8.0/8.0.1.

           

          Please review and consider and then we can decide what next.

           

          Thank you.

                Premiere Elements 4 or 8.0/8.0.1 on Windows XP 32 bit.....Yes

                 

                Are you set up with a FireWire (iLINK) connection for this DV Data capture?

                Yes, as indicated by the 1394 connection statement. 

                 

                From the screenshot, it appears that you only have 77 GB free space at the save location for the DV data capture. Can you point the Captured Video and Captured Audio to another save location with more free hard drive space?

                Have moved to 300GB free space. no success.

                 

                Is this a "it worked before but not now" or "it never worked before" for Premiere Elements 4 or 8.0/8.0.1?

                worked a few years ago marginally probably on Prem Elem 4.0.  Have rolled-back NVIDIA drivers to 296.10 dated 14 June 2012 with no success

                Have removed NVIDIA card and am using on-board DVI port. Prem 8.0 still reports "Microsoft Dv Camera" and not Sony as other programs do. What causes Prem Elem to not report Sony DV camcorder?

                 

                Thank you, will keep trying.

                  Thanks for the additional information. Appreciated.

                   

                  Let us focus on capture versus no capture rather than the name of the capture device being shown by the program.

                   

                  1. How sure are you that you recorded DV data 4:3 and not DV data 16:9?

                  Right now you have your project preset at NTSC DV Standard. Does the problem remain if you start a new project with the project preset at NTSC DV Widescreen?

                   

                  2. In the Premiere Elements 12 Capture Window, try the DV data capture

                  a. without Split Scenes

                  b. with Split Scenes, but with Content rather than Timecode

                   

                  Let us look at the above and then decide what next.

                   

                  Thanks.

                    1. very sure. Sony camera output is DV NTSC 4:3.

                    2. have tried all but still no preview or capture.

                      For troubleshooting purposes, have you tried to capture firewire into Windows Movie Maker? Does that work? In the beginning, you did write

                      Sony camera is recognised by Windows My Computer, AVS Video Recorder and Windows Media Encoder with capture capability.

                      From what you have written

                      worked a few years ago marginally probably on Prem Elem 4.0.

                      that would suggest to me that it really did not work well in Premiere Elements 4.0 and this is the first time you are trying it in Premiere Elements 8.0/8.0.1 where it is not working at all. In view of that, I am putting aside my thoughts of you using new installation files for 8.0/8.0.1. You could download and install Premiere Elements 12 tryout and determine if your capture firewire works there.

                       

                      Please review and consider. Then we can decide what next. The answer may end up being to capture firewire into one of the programs that works for you and then to transfer the saved DV AVI 4:3 Type 2 into Premiere Elements 8.0/8.0.1 with the Premiere Elements' Get Media/Files and Folders.

                       

                      Thanks.

                        Windows Movie Maker shows:

                        WMM1.jpg

                        Windows Media Encoder works great.

                        I had purchased Prem 8.0 because 4.0 would not capture reliably.

                        Looks like a dead horse.

                        Other programs work. Can't spend the time trying Prem Elem 12.

                          Thanks for the update. Sorry that the news was not better.

                           

                          Windows Movie Maker typically succeeds if Premiere Elements is a problem in this regard.

                           

                          In view of your history with DV data capture firewire and Premiere Elements and since you have identified non Adobe products that work for you in the DV data capture firewire, probably the most practical choice would be to go with one of the programs that works. And, if you need Premiere Elements (any version) for editing of the DV AVI captures, Premiere Elements (any versions) should not have problems with that.

                           

                          This is just the troubleshooter in me talking now. But, it would be interesting to see how the DV data capture firewire into Premiere Elements 4, 8, or 12 Capture window would fare if the computer in use was Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit and not Windows XP SP3 32 bit. Any chance of ever trying that?

                           

                          Whatever your video capture and editing choices, we wish you success. And, we thank you for looking at our suggestions.

                           

                          Thanks.
