CS4 isn't going to change the first two; many people use the freely-available HDVSplit for the second item. The third is the way PPro works, in all versions; just hit OK. To avoid this, check out batch capture in PPro, or otherwise use HDVSplit as above.
For the last item, my guess would be that there is a mismatch between your source footage and your project preset. Try a different HDV project preset, and see if the result changes.
A, B and C are normal for all versions of Premiere. Not sure why D, though.
Thanks guys for your help, I appreciate...
I will try other presets, although this is the setting on the camera, unless there is some obscure option somewhere that overrides this and I have not seen.
I checked the camera compatibilities area at the Adobe site. I was unable to find many models there....... it does not make any sense to me... why not? am I missing something?
One last question: since I can exchange the recently bought Sony HDR-HC9 HDV Camcorder...
I checked again Adobe compatibilities, CS3 & CS4 plus camcorder reviews, and I see that the Canon HV30 Camcorder is fully compatible with this software. Does that mean that a - b - c will be eliminated with the canon camcorder? What does really "fully compatible" mean?
If anybody is using this particular canon camcorder, please give some sign of life.
Any impressions and/or suggestions are appreciated.
Thanking you in advance
A & B happen with any and every HDV camcorder--that's just the way Premiere works.
C happens with any and every kind of tape-based camcorder, DV or HDV--that's just the way Premiere works.
"Fully compatible" likely refers to being able to ingest and edit the footage from a particular camcorder without needing to render. I can't give you any particulars on this camcorder (HV30) unfortunately. A Google search would probably turn up some information.
Thanks Colin for the information and your suggestion, I checked miniDVs, and the Sony & Canon seem to be within the same category.
But, it is one thing to read about a product, it is another thing to actually use it.
So, if anybody has first hand experience with the canon, please don`t be shy...
They are the same as far as compatibility goes. Adobe is just horrible about keeping its hardware compatibility lists current.
Thanks Adam, so I don`t have to worry on this point.....
