no luck. i had the FW drivers already set to 'Legacy' still gave me the same problems
I just got off the phone with Adobe support. It seems my graphics card might have been the problem (Nvidia GTX 570) They had me try exporting the entire sequence using the sequence settings to my hard drive. Then bringing that one file into premiere and exporting it to tape. I recorded about 5-6 minutes without a drop in signal. so far so good. Im going to export an entire hour long show and try to print it to tape this way. I will report back with any information i do find so others can get some help on this problem.
I bought a new Firewire cable. New PCI Firewire Card thinking that the Intel chipset might be clashing with Premiere for some reason on export, but that isnt the problem either.
does anybody know when adobe will release support for the nvidia geforce gtx 570 graphics card? i think this is my problem. I cant use the mercury playback engine for the GPU Acceleration. anyone have any other thoughts because I am out of them.
>anybody know when adobe will... (pretty much anything... new version, update release, whatever)
Anyone who knows, is not allowed to say... anyone else is only speculating
Just a workaround but try one thing
render the video you are trying to export to tape
export the sequence to your internal hard drive preferably Desktop.
not import the file again to premiere pro
drag the clip from the project bin to the new item button (this will create a sequence with the same settings as the clip)
now export this to tape.
it should export just fine.
gotcha. the video card has been out since november. thats why i was wondering in case it is the video card
prashant085: I am doing that currently. First exporting the sequence to the desktop and then inputting it back into the timeline. still not better
Here are more specific information with my system and settings for you to see. I also included a video of my workflow and showing you what exactly is happening on export.
Capture Format DV
Video Rendering and Playback: Mercury Playback Engine Software only
Aspect Ratio 16:9
30fps Drop-Frame Timecode
Desktop Video Display during playback checked box
External Device: DV_29.97 720x480i
Aspect Ration Conversion: Hardware Only
External Device Audio
Export: external device DV: 29.97 720x480i
Disable video output when in the background is not checked
Export to tape settings:
Activate recording device is checked
assemble timecode, delay movie start, and preroll _ frames (none are checked)
abort after _ dropped frames (not checked)
report dropped frames (not checked)
render audio before video (is checked)
I render out the video to one file (on my desktop).
then import the clip into a new sequence with the above settings.
then it begins recording and drops out like the camera loses signal.
this is really frusterating.
Are you positive that nothing else is starting up and interrupting your export? For a test open Task Manager and on the Performance Tab (if I remember correctly) select Resource Monitor and watch what happens when you experience a dropout.
Check that you have turned off the Premiere Autosave.
well i purchased ANOTHER SIIG PCI Express x1 card from newegg.com. unfortunately exporting to tape still doesnt work with premiere.
although I did try to export to tape with sony vegas pro 9.0 and it works! amazing.
so i think im going to cut my losses and headaches and just adjust my workflow to export to tape using Sony Vegas for now. maybe someday adobe wont be so stubborn with compatibility.
