Try a standard non-Matrox project. Capture from the camcorder into this project. Do not use Matrox captured material. Can you repeat the problem?
I did capture not using Matrox into a non Matrox project and the same things are according...a little bit worse. There is no video in the source monitor or the timeline monitor. However, if I which the Playback setting from Adobe Player to Matrox Player, then the video comes up in the source monitor but not the timeline monitor, even though I captured without the Matrox.
I don't know what to do. I originally thought all the problem were with with Matrox and I'm running out of time to return it.
If I were in your shoes, I would return the Matrox and get a refund. With your system it does not make sense to use a Matrox.
For the problem, time for more details. Source material, project/sequence settings, video card driver, processes running, etc.
Do you think the problem could be with Adobe CS4 since I captured it in a non-Matrox project and it was still not working properly or does Matrox card get involved even when I tell it not to?
Here's the details in the original Matrox project.
Filming on Sony z1U, using HDV tapes. 1440 x 1080 (60i)
Capturing with Matrox in a Matrox project, HDV, 1440 x 1080 (60i)
Playback sequence, using the Matrox Player (I'm not sure how much detail you need with the settings, there are a lot of them, is there something specifically you might see as a problem? I put some as an attachments.
Using a NVIDIA GEFORCE 9600 as the video card (set on Quality and not Performance), resolution 1440 x 900 (recommended for my monitor)
Processess running with Adobe being the only program open: alot. Here are the big ones: Adobe Premiere Pro.exe (obviously)... 1,679,09...
thanks in advance.
Thanks for the details, but unfortunately that is not enough for me to help you yet. I need more info.
If you look through this post, you will find links to ProcessExplorer and some other programs that will give a lot of data, without having to post ten's of posts with questions. Look here: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/416679?tstart=60
The other suggestions (DXDIAG/MSINFO32 etc.) are worthwhile to in order too find what is happening.
