1) When I import mpg files I can view them fine, they have full framerate, but when I put them into the timeline, they have maybe 1 frame a second, and I cannot press play on them at all, (same with previously captured DV files with respect to the cannot hit play on them in premier). And when I try to export the mpg files from the timeline, it ends up being about 1 frame per second, this does not happen if I use an avi file. I can't seem to figure this out, the framerate in the project and encode are fine (as I use same for both avi and mpg trials)
2) I cannot capture DV at all. The screen shows up grey, not black. It is not my camera or cable as I can capture on my laptop. I can also hit play, stop, fast forward, etc in premier, and the camera will perform the action, but it will not show up in premier, nor will premier capture it. Windows won't capture video either, it says it cannot communicate with capture driver. I tried looking on the net for how to re-install dv capture drivers.. but I could not find anything on this, so I tried installing the panasonic dv codec, that didn't help.
Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
