I'm trying to capture 4x3 SD video from a Cannon XHA1 camera, which is an HD camera, into Premiere Elements. I've tried setting up my Premiere file in 4x3 and 16x9 and tried setting the camera at DV 4x3 and 16x9. When I go to capture, Premiere shows that it's working but once I hit stop/pause, I get a notification that no frames were captured. What am I doing wrong?
Is your camcorder set to DV Lock? It needs to be in order to capture standard DV from an HDV camcorder.
Are you connected to your computer by a FireWire cable?
Any more details you can offer would be helpful.
Also, this is a $3500 professional HDV camcorder. Have you considered that it may be better to edit its video on prosumer software, like Premiere CS5, rather than on a $75 consumer app?
I'm connected through firewire. Not sure about "DV Lock." Under system control, there is an option for "DV Control," and MAGN. B. Lock and Shutter Lock.
DV Control is switched to "OFF"
I'm sorry. I don't know enough about those professional camcorders to advise you on the specifics of that model.
