I have the Sony Sony HVR-M35U,
but the menu is likely similar in the HVR-M15U.
Be sure that on the deck menu under HDV/DV SEL,
you have"HDV" selected instead of "AUTO" or "DV".
Thank you - I'll give that a try. From within the PP capture window, under setup, what model did you choose for the VTR itself as there is no options for a Sony HVR. Thanks again!
I just use the NTSC Generic and it works fine.
Thanks - I ended up hooking up an external monitor to the VTR as I could not get PP CS5 to display the video. Appreciate your help.
>could not get PP CS5 to display the video
As far as I know (from reading only, I don't do HDV) PPro does not show the video during capture... this is not a bug
You should (again, reading only) be able to see the video in PPro while simply playing it on the camera and not actually capturing
CS5 User Guides - online and PDF (see link in upper right corner at individual pages)
Over on the Win side many people use HDVSplit for capturing, but I have no idea what is available for a Mac
You are using a Firewire 400 port on the Mac--right?
