PPro CS3 works 100% fine with the HV20. Just don't count on editing that footage once it is done, because it doesn't work like that. PP creates 1 file ( .mpeg )
U most likely read my other posts, and workaround, but it works great.
Thanks for the reply! I did read your post where you indicated that importing HDV into PPro CS3 resulted in an MPEG file with video sync problems. Have others seen this same problem? Am I correct that PPpro doesn't do any type of scene or timestamp split of imported HDV files? As you point out, there are workarounds, although I don't have Pinnacle as you do. I suppose I could use MSP8 to import - it works fine as far as audio sync but also has no scene split capability for HD files. I gave HDVSplit a try, but had audio sync problems. Others have used it w/o problems, so I should probably give it another try.
Once your got your "workaround" files into PPpro, how was the rest of the editing process? Any memory leak or rendering problems? I notice you reported a very long rendering time for a 57 minute process? I assume you don't have the MainConcept codec that allows smart rendering? BTW, an 80 minute MSP8 HD project took about 18 hours to render, with smart render on. It did have a lot of transitions and many inserted still images with pan and scan, so those undoubtably slowed the process a lot. Not ideal. HD rendering just really stresses even relatively high-end PC's.
