What version of Premiere Elements are you using and on what computer operating system is it running?
Do you have access to a computer with a firewire port?
Or does your computer motherboard have appropriate slot for firewire card?
Product such as the Canopus one is often used for the analog to digital conversion in conjunction with Premiere Elements.
But firewire connection, not USB, is what works.
Thank you for responding to my question Sickness in family sorry for not responding sooner.
I just recently purchased the Adobe Premiere 12
I also purchase the program Haupauge win tv
when i use the win tv program I have no problem viewing
the vcr picture
yet when using Adobe Pre. 12 i went to new project
then add media
then webcam or WDM
at first I got a very snowey picture now only a blue screen. I'm very new at this HELP Thanks
Thanks for the details.
I can see you are possibly using the Hauppauge win TV as a web cam (seen that possible use mentioned online). And if Premiere Elements 12 recognizes it as a web cam via its Add Media/web cam or WDM choice, great, but....
But what you are suggesting seems to be VHS Tape (analog) in VCR to Hauppauge win TV digitalization and then using the Hauppauge as a capture device in Premiere Elements 12 with Premiere Elements 12's Add Media/web cam or WDM.
I would ask you this...if you go VHS Tape (analog) in VCR to Hauppauge win TV to computer (no Premiere Elements 12 involved) can you view the digitialized VHS tape content on the computer with one of its players? And, if so, does Hauppauge software allow you to store the viewed image on the computer? Another, if so, in what format MPEG2.mpg or something else?
Lots of questions.
I suspect that the Premiere Elements web cam feature is meant for nothing more than a camera recording a video and not to be part of a scheme for analog to digital conversion followed by video capture. I have enough problems trying to get Premiere Elements 12 to recognize my HD web cam as a HD rather than SD web cam.
We will be watching for further details.
Thank you very much for your respond
I will check out those web sights
Thanks for responding
Yes with the VHS and the tv the Haupauge win tv works fine.
I guest I'll use the win tv and transfer files to Adobe.
Lots of learning I'm very new at this.
Thank you very much for all your information much appreciated
If you could get the files onto the computer, I think it would be best then to import the files from the hard drive save location into Premiere Elements 12 with Premiere Elements 12's Add Media/Files and Folders. What type of files would be involved?
John's first link goes to an older version of Premiere Elements, version 7, and the .ts file extension (wrapper).
Premiere Elements 12, unlike some earlier versions, does support the .ts wrapper. So, if your VCR - Happauge win TV file on the computer hard drive turns out to be a MPEG2.ts, that format should be supported by Premiere Elements 12 and get through the Add Media/Files and Folders/.
Please update on your progress when you get a chance. And, do not hesitate to ask if you have questions or need clarification.
Thank You ATR for all your information
I took your advise and went to Add Media/files to try to transfer file ext .ts but
in order for Pre 12 to accept file ext .ts I had to get an Activation Code from Adobe
the code was put into my computer and now file ext .ts are accepted. That's Great!
I'm very greatful for all your help.
Now that I can put my old VCR tapes to Pre 12 I will get on with the task to learn how to use Adobe Pre 12.
Great, great news. Great job on a not so easy set up and task.
If any questions or need clarification as you move forward with your Premiere Elements projects, please do not hesitate to ask.
