I have an XL1 attached to my iMac via Firewire
Set capture in and out points
Press stop button or close capture window
Hear tape mechanism do something in camera
Using trial version of CS5.5 v5.5.1
OS X 10.7.1, iMac 2.7ghz i5
No other devices on firewire bus.
My old Final Cut Pro working fine with capture. I'm trying Premiere because FCPX is not making me happy.
If I capture in real time it works ok (although sound is garbled)
