Could we go over your details to make sure that we are together on them?
You did a DV data (standard or widescreen) capture firewire using a program other than Premiere Elements for the capture. And, that resulted in 63 dv.avi files.
You mention burning those files to DVD disc. With your mention of file name such as VTS_01_0.BUP, it sounds to me that you burned one or more of the 63 dv.avi to DVD-VIDEO format on DVD disc. Why? If you wanted to save the .dv.avi files, why did you not just burn them to a DVD disc as a data disc so that you would have 63 dv.avi saved on the DVD disc instead of the VIDEO_TS Folder with all the structures of DVD-VIDEO format on that DVD disc?
If Premiere Elements 13 did still have the DV Capture feature, you would have been putting dv.avi type 2 on the Timeline as a result of the capture firewire. Also, do you know if whatever you used for the DV data capture produced dv.avi type 1 or dv.avi type 2. Did you use Movie Maker 2012?
Also, I wanted to make sure that you were not dealing with some special version of Premiere Elements 13.
When you wrote
"I am using Premiere Essentials 13, Windows 8.1, 64"
Did you mean Premiere Elements 13?
Please review and consider and then we can discuss this further.
Yes, I meant Premiere Elements 13.
I think I'm going to buy a firewire that will work on my new computer, so I can download directly into Premiere Elements 13. I am hoping that will eliminate my problem. If it doesn't, I will get back to you. My video editing skills were very much in development, so I think I need to go with the easiest route.
Thanks, once again, for your help, ATR.
Thanks for the reply.
Did we discuss Premiere Elements 13 and DV data capture firewire before? In case we have not.....that feature has been removed from Premiere Elements 13 by Adobe.
There is an Adobe document that suggests a workaround for the Premiere Elements 13 situation. Have you seen it or used it? The following is the link to the
The last version to include the DV and HDV capture firewire feature is Premiere Elements 12/12.1.
Best wishes. Please let us know when if you need further information on the above.
Thank you, ATR.
No, we had not previously discussed the elimination of the DV data capture.
I've read the information you sent, and am trying to understand.
In brief, I have successfully imported the video to Adobe Premiere Elements 13. Problem is that en route the files were all renamed and the dates and times stripped out by some program -- and I don't know at what stage -- so the 63 clips are now completely jumbled.
I'll keep trying to figure it out.
I appreciate your help.
Thanks for the reply.
Just starting my day. In a few hours I will review the Adobe workaround for the removed DV HDV Capture feature in 13 and try to determine where the files were renamed and other information stripped out.
Just a generalization for now (a just in case message)...you can place your files sequentially in a folder and import the whole folder into Premiere Elements. When the folder is dragged to the Timeline, its content will appear on the Timeline in the order in which they were placed in the folder. How best to get the files placed in the folder sequentially in the first place is another matter. Typically numbering in the file name is convenient and does the job.
To be continued
ATR, just wanted to let you know that I resolved my problem by downloading Adobe to the computer to which I downloaded video. Thank you for your help.
Thanks for the update.
Hope all is going well. I see another thread of yours that I have not opened yet. It is late were I am so I may have to wait until the light of day to reply to it.
