From the PPro CS5Help FIle:
You can also preview HDV footage in the Capture window, in Windows only. However, you cannot preview HDV footage in the Capture window during capture. Instead, the word Capturing appears in this window during HDV capture.
Is this what you are talking about?
Somewhat. When I open the capture window, I can't see the video being captured (or recorded) in the window.. When I open the capture window, I can controll the camera from the capture window functions, ( start, play, stop, etc...) I need to see it in the window. Thanks.
You cant see video when capturing HDV.
You have to look at the monitor on your camera to see it.
It does work when capturing SD.
I forget why Premiere doesnt show this but it has been this way for awhile now.
I just look at my camera when I do HDV. It really doesnt make much of a difference as compared to looking at your computer monitor.
Maybe someone else could chime in on the why's of it.
