I am trying to export a timeline to tape from premiere pro CS4 to my Canon XL-2 camera.
The timeline settings are DV PAL, 25 fps, 16:9 aspect ratio, lower field first. I live in Australia and therefore have a PAL camera.
These are the settings that I used when using CS3 and exporting to tape was fine. The export process seems to run fine but when I review the tape there is nothing but black.
Premiere pro can control and capture from my camera fine, but when I try exporting it seems to show that it is working but results in nothing being taped.
I am running windows vista 64 bit, 4GB ram with a q6600 processor.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
By fiddling with the device control properties the problem was resolved. Though I am not sure which setting corrected the problem, it may have been changing the device type from generic to canon XL1S (which is very similar to the XL-2).
