I just shot 1 minute of video in HDV 1080i with my new SONY HVR-Z5U camcorder. I connected an IEEE cable from the camera to my new computer. Premiere Pro is set for HDV, 1080i. In Capture mode I can control the camcorder but nothing appears on the computer monitor and nothing gets captured. It worked in DV mode with video recorded in DV, but not in HDV. How can I record HDV video into my computer?
Only with the full version, not with the trial. With the full version, there is no preview during capture of HDV. Better use HDVSplit for capturing. It offers everything Adobe should have offered eons ago but doesn't and it is ftree.
You're right. It did record. There just was no preview. How odd.
