Okay, so I just got CS5, and I'm trying to capture video from a Samsung SCD103. The main reason I'm doing it from this cam is that I have to work on this one at home. The problem and possible determining factor is that I shot it on a Cannon Vixa30 and it was shot in 1080i HDV.
I would normaly be editing on Final Cut Pro, but I don't have a mac. So I can't use the FireWire. I'm instead forced to use the USB interface.
What is the problem with this? is it an incompatibility with the camera (only shoots DV) and the footage(shot in HDV)?
Or is it a problem with Premeir Pro?
Please help me,
My deadline is monday night, I don't get back in until tuesday afternoon, and I'm just a little new to Premeir Pro,
As far as I know, PPro only connects to a camera via Firewire
If your computer doesn't have a Firewire port, you'll have to use the USB port with some other software... maybe from Samsung?
Yes, with only a USB interface, one must instead Copy the files to the internal HDD, as Capture is not possible. Instead of Capture, you will instead, Import the files, once Copied.
You cannot capture HDV footage with the Samsung as it's DV only.
Second, for capturing HDV you have to use firewire. USB does not apply here at all.
