I am using a Sony HDR-HC9 HDV Camera as the source deck for capturing and importing numerous DV cassettes into a Premiere Elements 10 project, some which are SD and others HD. In both cases Premiere recognizes/controls the camera but will only display/capture the HD source material. Would like to know what the correct Premiere setup settings should be in order to capture both the SD and HD material. As information I can capture SD DV cassettes in other programs (Roxio) but would prefer to capture in Premiere if possible.
You need to set the camcorder to standard DV before the program will recognize the video from it as standard DV.
I don't know exactly how to do that on a Sony. On a Canon, there's a DV Lock setting. But your camcorder has a similar switch.
