I have been using PE since version 3 and have not had problems in the past. I just upgraded and connected my canon hv20 camcorder. I created a new projecte and clicked capture to get my fideo from the camcorder. It goes through the tape but in the past I would seem it all import into the timeline and then I could burn to a dvd.
I looked in the PE directory and I have a large movie clip file(7.8mb) with the same name as the new project. So it looks like it caputred the video but I am not sure how I can access it.
Any help being able to view the document or explain what I am doing wrong in the capture process is appreciated.
You can use Get Media to import the file to your project but it should be in the Organizer if you cannot find it under the Project tab. There should be a checkbox to add to timeline in the capture workspace, make sure that is checked next time.
Don't have access to version 7 at the moment so I hope this helps.
