HDV is always captured as an MPEG by Premiere, because it is an MPEG file.
No, It has always captured the HDV as a AVI until recently. I am trying to figure out why it is doing this. The quality of the MPEG is horrible after exporting to either Flash or Windows media file. Like I said before, it used to capture as AVI, and now will only capture as MPEG when capturing from HDV. When I use the I-Link from my HDV camcorder I have to switch it to HVD to DV conversion out of the camera to capture as an AVI. Please Help!!!!
John -- do you have a Matrox card or something?
If you had Premiere Pro 1.5.1 then it captured HDV as Cineform AVI. But not since then.
I have a Sony 1080i camcorder, I am using Premier pro cs. I am capturing through the I-Link firewire. I do know that the problem started after an automatic update from adobe.
I have a top end 512 MB ATI video card.
Why would the capture format change to MPEG after the update?
In the options menu for capturing, everything is greyed out that lets me change capture formats, so I can not change them.
The quality is very pixilated and has a little bit of "lag" in the video playback.
I am exporting to Windows media at widescreen 1280KBS and it still looks like crap.
If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it, and thaks to those that have responded..
Once again, using only Adobe CS3 for capture, HDV has always been MPEG. It was never AVI. Based on the data you have given so far, I'm inclined to suggest that your observations are in error.
