I'm trying to put together my demo reel. However, haven't been able to capture video with a video capture card that I have. I have one of those Dazzle video capture units(noob card), but that seems to only work with the software it came with, but I prefer Premiere. What cards can I use with adobe Premiere?"
I agree - I have always just used the onboard 1394 that came with each PC, and have had no problems - in fact, I can't remember a single dropped frame (I do insist on capturing to a separate physical drive from the one that holds my OS - that's important for smooth capturing). Perhaps a fancy card would speed up rendering, but with real-time preview being pretty good these days, it hasn't been an issue for me.
