I have neither PE3 nor a Canon HV20, so my question will be of a more general nature, and might not be germane to your exact situation. Still, here goes. Have you checked your HDD to see if the Captured footage did, in fact, Capture? If so, you *should* be able to begin working with it in PE3. You *might* have to Import it into your Project (would be there, if PE3 had not hung).
There are also a lot of HV20/HV30 threads on this forum (quite a few in the Premiere Pro forums too). You might do a search, just in case someone has had a similar problem and might have found a solution to it.
Doesn't directly answer your questions about the hanging, etc., but might get you to editing.
A workaround might be to Capture with a 3rd party program, like ScenAlyzer Live, or similar. Then you just Import the Captured footage into PE3.
Thanks Bill for your quick reply,
I forgot some details:
1. I believe it did capture the footage; I tried importing it later but again the computer froze up.
2. I then went on to use Third Party software "HDVsplit" under the recommendation of some other Canon users to capture the footage, but again importing that footage onto Premiere caused the computer to freeze.
I just had a look around the forums but nothing so far. If any other HV20 owners have had this problem, and solved it, help would be appreciated.
This sounds to me like a lack of resource issue.
Do you have the recommended 4 gigabytes of RAM for HDV editing?
Have you ensured that you have at least 50 gigabytes of free, freshly defragmented space?
If you're capturing to a drive other than your C drive, have you ensured that the drive is formatted NTFS and not FAT32?
Also, have you optimized Vista for video editing?
Dell XPS M1330
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.00 ghz
3070 mb RAM
Over a terabyte of harddrive space, NTFS.
I'd recommend a call to Adobe Tech Support.
