Yes. No problems.
What are yours?
I've not seen a VCR with FW. Interesting. Out of curiosity, what brand is your, Harm?
I may need to replace an older VCR, and might be in the market - though mine will obviously have to be a US model.
I sometimes do this if I'm not at my machine with the analogue capture card.
- Attach "AV input/output" (often red/white/yellow composite RCA's to minijack) cable to your (firewire equipped) handycam or deck.
- Hit PLAY on the VCR
- Hit CAPTURE in PP
- Vision and sound should "pass through" the camera and be captured by PP as though the camera was rolling tape.
Naturally there are no "remote control" options in PP.
The only way I have ever used a VCR to capture to Premiere via Firewire is by
using a "box" in the middle of the connection.
eg Sony DSR11 or ACDV110. (some people use a camera as the analogue / digital conversion)
JVC had several dual deck models (VHS + DV) that had a tuner. Otherwise there are a number of DV decks from Sony and Panasonic that lack a tuner, but are definitely capable of recording, so can be called VCR. Mostly I use a Panasonic NV-DV2000. I still have a JVC dual deck with firewire, but JVC is not very sturdy and the tape transport is not always free of trouble.
Thanks. My one dual-deck (VHS/DVD) is a Panny, but does not have FW. Maybe they have been all around me, and I just never looked.
Sorry for the late reply, IE for somereason wouldn't let me sign on. I had to go through firefox. Anyway,thanks for all the info. I'll try the AV input/output method.
My Sony HCR-HD1 handy cam only has output connections. I tried it anyway and it didn't work..
