> Is it possible to capture from a camera, but record the audio at the same time from a different audio device, e.g. soundcard?
Into PPRO at the same time no.
But capture your audio with another program, try Goldwave.
My practice is to capture sound separately using an hard disc recorder,from two to twenty-four tracks, and to combine this with the video in Premiere Pro. I use the sound track on the tape to achieve synchronization (which is very easy in Premiere Pro). If the room is small (<100 feet) I can use an on-camera microphone. For best results I use a wireless feed from the recorder to the camera.
It's important to use a digital recorder, preferably at 48KHz sampling speed (you can convert from 44.1 or something else, but the speed may slip). An analog source, like a cassette deck, varies too much in speed, often more than 5%, to be useful. The sync slip is usually less than 3 frames per hour of recording. Most digital recorders have a digital output which can be captured directly by the computer through firewire or USB. If your only choice is an analog sound card, don't bother - too noisy and bad timing.
