Capture/Compression problem with Premiere 5.1c
Posted on 2002-07-23
I bought Dazzle Hollywood DV-Bridge a few days ago and have been having some problems making it interact with Premiere 5.1c
The problem is this: no matter what settings I put up in Prem, I cannot capture any video. The program does put out an .avi file, however there seems to be a compression problem (maybe?) since no application I have can read that .avi.
Now, the bundled software that came with DV-Bridge captures just fine, at least the program itself can read it. Premiere still does not recognize it as a valid .avi.
I'm capturing from a Hi8 Sony cam (analog) which DV-B converts to digital signal in order to get it to my comp thru a firewire host. In the control panel of my comp there is a DVCam button now, which brings me to a simple still image grab type thing, so the signal IS getting to the computer.
So the only idea I have is that there is somekind of a compression problem. I don't know much about the technicalities of this, so I am asking for help.
Any help will be much appreciated, and as always please post your comments as such and not answers.
If there is any more info you need to diagnose the problem feel free to ask, I will do my best to provide more info.
