For years I used Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0 very satisfactorily. I'm retired, and I make numerous videos for local non-profits at my expense. Now my faithful old program is obsolete and I must replace it.
I shoot on Mini-DV tape, and normally capture scenes from my JVC player with a firewire connection. It's essential that I have a program that easily captures timed scenes like the Premiere 2.0 did. How can I do that? I also record narration on Min-DV and import it into my shows.
I'm in the market for an editing program as versatile and easy to use as Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0 was -- and one that does what I want, not what it does automatically. I have enough of that with Windows 8 in my new Lenovo now.
I have a trial version of Adobe Premiere Elements 13 and I think I'd like to buy it, but I need to know how to capture timed scenes from my Mini-DV tapes.
The DV data and HDV data capture firewire feature into a Premiere Elements Capture Window as well as Timelapse (Stop Motion) were removed by Adobe in Premiere Elements 13 (latest version). Premiere Elements 12 is the last version to have these features. Adobe is selling only the latest version at this time and that is what is being offered for the tryout. Please refer to the following Adobe document for its suggested workarounds for the present situation.
