I recently upgraded to CS5 and I have been unable to get Premiere to batch capture. I have tried all the usual fixes. Premiere appears to control the deck normally. It seeks the tape for the in-point and then rolls the deck. Now normally when it begins recording a counter appears telling you the recording duration and amount of space remaining on disk. That never appears, it just plays the tape and does not stop when it reaches the out-point. I have checked device control and everything is correct.
So, I tried batch capturing the same footage in CS3 and had no problems! Therefore I have to believe it is an issue with CS5. This is all very disappointing, logging hours worth of video and then not being able to capture it; huge waste of time.
so untill you get it sorted...Batch Capture in CS3 and then use the media in CS5.
I am already doing that, I would like to know if it is a bug with CS5?
I think I may have figured out why my Premiere is not batch capturing! When I log a clip, it logs the video size at 1440 X 1080! The project however was created as 720p; it's what the sequence resolution is set to. Why would Premiere arbitrarily chose the wrong resolution? I have checked all the settings, they all say 720p, is there something I am missing?
