There are several previous disusssions, with some solutions
Thanks for the info! Now from what I get, the problem is that the red flashes show up because I'm editing an MPEG video clip. As a matter of fact. I looked at what I'm using to import my analog video. The program/hardware is CapWiz Xpress DX2. And I see that my import setting are set to "save as MPEG-2." Not good!
I think I've got the problem solved with that. I think I just need to convert the files to AVI files.
Now, what I need to know is this. I have a JVC miniDV Camcorder that has the I-Link/Firewire plug. This will allow me to import my new videos directly into Premiere Pro CS3. I haven't been able to check yet. But, are the files from the camera MPEG or AVI once imported into Premiere Pro. Anyone out there using a miniDV camcorder that can share some light on this?
By far the easiest way is to play the VHS source to your JVC camera, using analog connections and using the JVC, connected by firewire, to pass thru the signal as digital. You can then easily capture as MS DV AVI type 2.
You may also want to consider actually recording to MiniDV tape first. It's an extra step, but if you ever need to recapture, it'll be easy to get an exact duplicate. With a pass-through live recording, that option goes away.
Just a thought.
