I'm on a Widows Vista 64 Dell XPS machine. I have several old 8mm tapes and used my Sony DCR-TRV480 to import directly to Premiere via FireWire, yet the controls work fine but no picture is seen in Premiere and I end-up with lost frames and nothing imports??? I then applied On location and was able to see the video and capture the sequences but they are too fast when they are played back in Premiere or Windows player??? Any help or suggestions would be appreciated as I'm at a loss to resolve this problem. The Sony player plays the 8mm tape just fine on the small monitor or larger monitor LCD monitor.
Use a Canopus AVDC-100 or similar for converting the signal from analog to digital and edit in a standard DV preset.
Any chance the tapes were recorded at a slower than normal speed? Like an LP mode or something?
I have no idea as it was recorded back in 1994.
