    PE8 - Clips won't play if DV device connected (bug?)

    tribble3

      This is a repeatable oddity on my system... Windows 7 64-bit, 4GB RAM, PE8 with 8.0.1 update.

       

      After capturing video from an attached SD DV camcorder via IEEE1394 and closing the capture window, you cannot preview clips or play the timeline while the DV device is still attached. If you do, you'll hear the sound, but the picture will not move. When you pause, the picture will be updated to the frame you paused at. The solution is to just make sure you unplug your DV device when you're done capturing, but it took me a few sessions to notice this dependency.

       

      I see by searching the forums there may be a related bug in PPro CS4, but that is a "different program altogether," right? ;-)

       

      There is no "report bug" option in the Support menus that I could find, and I don't feel like spending $40 to call and report a likely bug, so I'm posting this here in the hopes that someone can do something useful with the information.


      Cheers!
