"Using Premiere's Export to Tape Option for HDV Projects" - see attached .pdf
At the end of 2009, I tried unsuccessfully to use the Export to Tape function in Premiere CS3. In my case, I wanted to export an HDV project back to a mini-DV tape using my Canon HV30 camcorder. After many false starts, I came up with a workflow that worked for me. If I followed all of it...to the letter...my transfer to tape was successful.
I offer it with best wishes...your mileage may vary.
