    Capture Issue with DVX100B


      I would be grateful for any help resolving my inability to capture/see dv footage off a prosumer camcorder in CS5.5.


      The system:

      Lenovo Thinkpad W520

      I72720QM @ 2.2Ghz

      RAM 16Gb

      Win 7 64bit

      Adobe Master Collection.

      Camera: Panasonic AG-DVX100B


      My problem:

      When I got to capture using the F5 command I get a black screen but am unable to see anything on the screen. The scene detect does work and I was able to get clips off the camera into my project. I have been messing around with the settings, changing the firewire drivers, etc and find that the capture screen seems to hang up and I have to shut down premiere pro cs5.5 each time and begin again.


      I have Premiere pro 1.5 also installed on this machine – voila works fine and was able to capture with seemingly no issues. Can anyone help me solve this bizarre situation.

      Bottom line:

      Premiere pro 1.5 captures the clip off the pansaonic camcorder (dvx-100b) standard def. without a hitch.

      Premiere pro cs5.5’s capture does not seem to be working as advertised!
