Premiere Elements 13 does not support capture by Firewire like earlier versions.
Other than using an old version for capture, there are two options.
One is listed here:
Another is to use HDVSplit if capturing HDV:
Premiere Elements 13/13.1 no longer has the DV or HDV data capture firewire into the Premiere Elements Capture Window feature.
The last version that has this feature is 12/12.1.
Please see the Adobe document on suggested workaround....
Also, please explore for HDV Capture
to bring your MPEG2.m2t split clips from this program into Premiere Elements with Premiere Elements' Add Media/Files and Folders
Any questions or need clarification, please ask.
I did not see Peru Bob's post until after I had hit the Add Reply button.
I guess that he can be relatively sure it's the correct answer.
Thank You both for the info. That helps. It is crazy that they dropped the firewire.
