Need HDV Walkthrough
I just started fooling around today with HDV capture and I kinda need a step by step process to get the video in Premiere and to make it work. I downloaded HDVSPLIT and I have Super. I captured in HDVSPLIT and then went into Super, imported the file and then had Super rip the audio off into a Wav file.
I shot the video in HDV Standard.
I opened up Premiere and chose the HDV 1080i30(60i) setting and then I imported the original captured file and the wav audio file.
I have seen some people say to relink the audio file with the video.
Well, I dragged the video down only with no audio attached and then dragged the WAV file down under it. I never clicked re-link. Is this ok or do I do it a different way, if so how?
Anyways, when I got it down there I noticed that when I played it from the timeline I would occasionally have a momentary audio dropout. The original file played in Super is fine audio wise.
Is this because of Premiere or the hard drive I am using or the computer. I have an external USB 2.0 "Western Digital My Essential Edition" 1TB Hard Drive
I am on a Compaq Presario Laptop V3015NR
It has 1gb of RAM and a AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile Processor, I was hoping this would be the bare bones minimum needed for HDV.
Any help to solve the dropouts and to led me through the process of getting HDV to work well in the Premiere timeline would be appreciated. Thanks
Why do you need to split the audio and video file?
Your PC might not be fast enough to handle HDV editing. You can try using Proxy Editing or Bait and Switch method to edit video in a slower PC.
I was in Premiere just now and there is an red error "x" down at the lower right and it says that it detected an error with the mpeg stream. And it says that twice. If that helps any.
Also I don't need to split the audio and video? I can leave it intacted?
I just got the Premiere update the one that's suppose to fix audio/video synching but I still have audio dropouts, any ideas?
If you have Premiere 3.2, the audio/video unsync issue is resolved. Premiere will generate some red flames in the video clip to notify you there is a drop out.
Regarding your audio drop out, it's your PC under power.
Thanks Lunchbox...one last question do you think adding another stick of ram would help or would I also have to upgrade the processor. If I have to do that I might as well get a keyturn system
