What version of Premiere Elements are you using? And on what computer operating system is it running? Does your new computer have a firewire port?
If you are not using Premiere Elements 13 and are using an earlier version of the program, then you should have a functioning Add Media/DV Capture and HDV Capture which will enable you to do DV and HDV Capture Firewire into the Premiere Elements Capture Window. Premiere Elements 12/12.1 is the last version to have this feature.
The camera worked fine using my old computer (just died) and an older version of Premiere Pro. Any suggestions?
Did you ever use any version of Premiere Elements on this old computer? Was the connection USB or firewire?
Thank you. Not going to be a useful program for me.
Thank you for your response. I downloaded the new trial program "13" to see if I could get by with this verses using the Pro version as I am a light user. I am running Windows 10 on a PC with 16 GB RAM, i7-4790 CPU @ 4.00 Ghz. The program loaded fine. The program opens fine, just won't recognize my video camera. I went from new project to add media and the source was blank. It looks like this program does not capture DV video. I downloaded a free Windows editing program to see if it was the equipment and was able to capture the video just fine.
Looks like this program won't work for me.
You may capture using a different program and then use PE13 to edit and create a DVD (or a file for computer playback)
I HAVE used http://www.scenalyzer.com/ and it works well, but breaks capture into 4Gig chunks
-which is not a problem, since joining the 4Gig files on the timeline works well
I have NOT used it, but many say to try this for HDV capture

Great information. Thank you.
Running version 13 and found that I need a third-party program to capture the DV video from my firewire connection.
Thanks for the follow up. I having been following your thread and glad to learn that you have the information that you need to move forward with your projects.
Please do not hesitate to ask if further questions come up on your Premiere Elements workflows.
