The DSR-11 was a notoriously finicky deck. I would see if you could borrow or try to capture on another deck or camera. The only other suggestions I could offer would be
- try playing with the deck control settings to see if you get the footage captured the right way
- do a free-run capture (hit play on the deck) and record on Premiere Pro (no deck control)
hope this helps,
I've been using the DSR-11 for about six years, and yes, it is finicky. It loses in-points, and occasionally fails to capture logged clips, but I've captured countless hours of footage from it, and it has never captured a clip at the wrong size with the offending clip sandwiched by two that were captured at the correct size. PP CS5 capture software is suspect on this one.
I have fiddled with the control settings a bit with no joy. I have not yet tried to punch in manually, but I will try that.
Since I have another 3 hours of footage from the same event on a second tape, I'm considering capturing those clips with CS4 to see if I get any errors there. I believe I should be able to import the CS4 clips or project into CS5 for editing.
Thanks for your suggestions. I appreciate your participation in the forums and your tutorials.
clips were recorded at 1280x480 px dimensions.
I would not have thought that even possible using a DV codec.
