Use the free http://www.headbands.com/gspot/ to provide codec details
This seems to happen with Type 1 AVI files, but that shouldn't be if Premiere was the capture utility.
I downloaded and ran GSpot v2.70a on my AVI file. Lot's of data!
In the GSpot "Container" window it reports these lines:
File Length Correct
DV Type 2 AVI
Multipart OpenDML AVI (5 parts)
(41160 frames in first part, -96 frames follow)
The "Video" report window says "Codec(s) are installed" with the name "DVC/DV Video." Actual length is 22m, 46.979s (which differs from my original statement because there a stretch of blank tape conversion after the actual content).
I think I'll repeat the transfer and be watching at the critical times.
Thanks for the pointer to GSpot and also thanks, Jim, for your response.
I use a Pinnacle Dv500 card for analog to digital for which, since the driver is for Premiere 6x and that old P6x won't run on WinXP, I am using Sclive for the actual process (more at my http://www.pacifier.com/~jtsmith/ADOBE.HTM notes page)
I have found, on my system at least, that any "glitch" in the tape will cause Sclive to bomb out
It MAY be that a tiny problem in your tape is creating "fuzz" in the file that is causing your problem
Retry worked as expected the first time. Full length capture and OK clip display in the project. I guess just a newbie goof the first time.
Thanks for responses, guys.
We had the putput form a Morae session sent to us and are looking to Add credits etc in Adobe Premiere, but having the same issue with the file being imported only showing as 43 seconds when the actual video length is 15 mins and is an avi file:
See the details here.
P6.x (and even P5.x) will run under XP - I have them working OK here. But there are issues with DV500 drivers and P5.x which make that combination less attractive if you also have 6.x and later DV500 drivers.
And SCLive is much more tolerant of dropouts than Premiere's capture module. What have you set in SCLive preferences for terminating capture?
I use a GV-D1000 as an analogue-digital bridge nowadays with a FireWire-only computer feed and have left my DV500 installed in my old (now standby/backup) system.
