The latest Elements version 14 wont capture mini dv. Adobe stripped that feature from the program.
Is it SD or HDV you want to capture?
For SD look for WinDV
For HDV that would be HDVSplit
After capture to you local hdd you can import the footage into Elements and edit as usual.
Elements 12 was the last version to capture from tape cameras.
Thanks for your reply. HDV cassettes.
Do you know of any way to capture this format for use in adobe premier
In my previous post a gave a link to HDV split which is a little program to capture HDV. Your computer does need a firewire-connection.
Which Elements version are you using?
need to procure a used one, (mine sony's gone).
Please consider....a point of detail....
Project Assets is a file storage area in the Expert workspace of Premiere Elements 11, 12/12.1, 13/13.1, and 14/14.1.
You cannot import a clip from the hard drive by double click in the Project Assets window. I have not been able to do that nor seen it done by anyone else.
In the Expert Workspace, you first go to Add Media/Files and Folders/Project Assets from where you drag the file to the Timeline track.
If you double click the thumbnail of the import in Project Assets, all you do is open the already imported file in the Preview Windows for clip trimming.
I have not been able to do that nor seen it done by anyone else.
Well I must be the first, for several versions now
Thanks for your input
You are most welcome!
I withdraw my comments regarding how you are importing files into the Expert workspace Project Assets bypassing Add Media Panel/Files and Folders choice.
I now understand what you are double clicking a blank space in the opened Project Assets to bring up the Add Media dialog to browse the computer for your file to take into Project Assets.
I do not use that way. I typically go Add Media Panel of choices/Files and Folders browse/Project Assets or when appropriate use the drag and drop method.
