So here goes. I use the lowest preview method to get the video into my comp. I then add all types of effects. Looking pretty good if i can say so myself . Now i am trying to create an AVI file. Here is the problem i am facing. I started the transfer from DV cam to comp at 00:00:00:00. However, i have now added 18 secs of effects prior to the first video frame. When pinnacle is trying to create the AVI, it winds my DV cam to 00:18 AND then starts the capture!! This of course messes up the entire editing i just did. Is there a way to tell pinnacle that 00:18 on the edited file is actually 00:00 on the DV camera tape? Thanks.
