I just got a Canon XH A1. I set up a test sequence using "HDV 1080p 24" as my settings. Even though Canon lists this camcorder as being 1080i, this is as close as I could guess to the proper settings in PremierePro CS4. I then tried to capture some test footage, but the capture settings would only allow "DV" capture mode. Using DV capture mode, Premiere recognizes the camcorder, and performs the capture. But using the HDV capture settings, I can still control the camcorder via Premiere, but Premiere won't capture anything saying the "Device is Offline."
I captured my test footage using DV mode, but I'm now wondering if Premiere is capturing ALL the HD information, or just SD info?
Is anyone familiar with this quirk or whatever is going on with Premiere and my Canon XH?
Can you please advise me on the proper workflow here, including export settings I should know about? Thanks so much!
