Any one had success importing .TOD (JVC HD format) files into CS3? I have had no luck with PRO 1.5. Also, anyone actually done video capture with one of JVC HD camera series GZ-HD5, GZ-HD6, etc.?
I got an JVC GZ-HD6 for a present and have had a hard time getting good results getting the video into Premiere. I've tried converting the .TOD format into MPEG and .MOV but with little success. I'm using 1.5 now but considering CS3 if it makes my video editing life easier using the JVC camera.
You'd honestly be better off spending your money on a new camera than a new version of Premiere. Tape based MiniDV is the preferred choice if you intend to edit your videos. Hard drive cameras are designed more for the "shoot and watch" type of consumer, and not so much for editors.
