I'm in the process of testing the Sony HDV S270 camera with my Premiere Pro CS4. Very happy with the import of the Long-GOP files, edits like a dream in Pro. I use Deck-link currently because of my analog decks and SD camera, soon to be replaced by the Sony HDV 270. I will be capturing / importing with firewire for HDV tape and compact flash for the M2T files. For some reason though when I did the test, I can't see the video on my output LCD monitor, only the source video. Has any one had any issues with Deck link and CS4 like this? I've checked my project setup, 1080i (60), 16:9.
Well, the preview of HDV during the capture is simply is not available.
Sorry, I don't think I explained myself correctly. I haven't captured footage yet, just a compact Flash card file transfer. I'm refering to the footage (M2T files) once on the timeline. I use dual monitors for editing (Premiere project) with the third monitor (42 inch LCD) as my program output monitor / client preview. So I can see the footage in my preview and project monitors in premiere, but not on the extended 3rd monitor.
