Greetings. This is my first post here. The last time I did any video editing was on a convergence machine. Comparatively stone-age to Premier Pro. I printed the online tutorial "Quickstart Guide" graciously posted by Marc Peters and have been using it to simplify my process. So far it has been invaluable (Thank you, Mr. Peters!), but I am still at the earliest stages of using the system and am having trouble BATCH IMPORTING.
As instructed, I logged a tape's-worth of shots, entered IN/OUT points using the icons underneath the monitor window, pressed the "Log Clip" button thus popping up the screen to include specific labeling and "OK". At the conclusion of the session I was ready to drag 'n drop into a BIN for Importing. I directed the program to Import, and all equipment was connected/proper tape loaded - and it appeared to be attempting to capture all cuts. I left the room for a few minutes while it shuttled to and fro for each segment, but returned to discover red "X's" in the project window. When I checked the batch summary/report it indicated that, at each attempt to import, there was a FAILURE MESSAGE. Sometimes it indicated that the program could not find the IN point. Others just indicated that the attempt had failed.
I postulated that I had incorrectly chosen the icons underneath the capture monitor, and that I should try a test batch using the IN/OUT buttons directly above the "LOG" button (over to the right of the capture display) but didn't have better results. Still get error messages. I am frustrated, puzzled, and at a loss here. Is there anyone out there who would offer a bit of instruction to someone who is a complete novice to computer editing? I learn quickly, and am aware that this may be SUCH a simple problem. Still, I remain stumped. And those who referred me to this software assured me that it would be instantly understandable. Feeling a bit dense right now. Help? Thanks- Replicant
