> to put my rendered project into the cassette avoiding to wait for 6 hours again.
It rendered because you had not rendered your timeline before outputting to tape. This needs to happen.
Render your timeline seperately first, then save your work. Now you can export to tape without rendering.
Not sure why it stopped...
Hi and thanks for the reply.
I tried with a two short clips. I rendered the project then saved it (the bar over the clips now is green).
I did select export to tape but if I press the "rendering and record" button premiere started rendering again before exporting to tape. Am I doing some mistake? Why doesn't it record to tape without rendering first?
Hope you can help.
Thanks a lot.

to render first. By rendering you basically commit your changes/effects into a new file. See preferences Preview File Location, inside it will be your rendered files.
It is how it works, especially for exporting to tape, Premiere will read the new rendered clips and use them to assemble it to your tape.
I know that by rendering I commit my changes into new files. The question is: why should I render my timeline first if premiere will render it again before exporting to tape? It will take me double the time to esport my job, am I wrong? I hoped premiere would only assembled the rendered file into a new bigger one and then copied them into tape without rendering the job again whereas...
Did I write some fool things?
Rendering the sequence in no way reduces the time it takes to write to tape when using HDV. That only works with DV. It only makes preview files that help you see your HDV. It does not make it possible to export without rendering first. Sad fact of life and the reason I never export to tape. I have a DVD player that plays WMV-HD and native m2t files from DVD-ROM.
Ah ok. I had the thought I was doing something wrong but he fact is that.
Steven, you probably know that Premiere generates a file while rendering the sequence and the put it into the tape. Is there a way I can put that file into the tape with Premiere or another software? I need a simple drag and drop from pc to tape. I need a software like hdvsplit that the generated hdv file into the tape throgh the firewire port.
Thanks a lot.
I know how to fool Premiere Pro into creating the file. I just don't know of a program that will write it to tape.
