View Full Version : Problems with DVX100 in Premiere?
09-01-2003, 02:42 PM
What issues have people encountered with the DVX100 in Premiere (6.0 or 6.5)? I've seen posts where Zoomforce comment "if only they supported this camera" when talking about Premiere. Someone tell me this camera NLE combination works well together?

Right now PremPro does not officially support 24pA, but it most likley will in the future. In fact, maybe it does today:

it doesnt support it yet, Adobe's statement is that the 24pA format wasnt used enough to justify the added expense.
As for 6.0 and 6.5, worked well without the DVX, except when it would crash.

Repeat....False Alarm. The magic bullet plug-in is a filter.

BTW....several folks who are using PPro, say that it is very stable. The integration with Encore, After Effects, and Audition, should be an awesome platform actually.
Right now though, I'm beginning the Edius learning curve and it has some pretty slick features with Version 1.5 being released this month.

Premiere Pro is very stable and the integration with After Affects, Audition (GREAT AUDIO APP!!!) and Encore is awesome. Workflow improvements are considerable, but if I had known Premiere did not support the 24p of my new DVX100, (After Affects and Encore supposedly support it) I would have went with Vegas at it's native support.
For straight video and DVD work I recomend highly but still want to edit 24P so waiting patiently for plug in???
Wanted to buy Photoshop also, but may have to use that cash for Vegas... >:(

why not use dvfilmmaker?..just the same as had to be done with all other versions of premiere, and has been working fine.

Straight from Adobe:
Choose a platform to read related configuration notes for this device.
Windows XP: Conditional Support
Progressive shooting mode is only supported in 30p. Material shot in 24p and 24p Advanced modes can be captured and edited, but will be treated as standard DV and will exhibit telecine-like interlacing artifacts introduced by the camera's conversion process.
This device fails to record the first several frames of the program. Inserting black leader at the head of the program helps overcome this limitation.

Adobe really managed to screw things up. I really can't conceive a company not supporting THE hottest camcorder in history. Escpecially when Vegas, Blade2, XpressPro, and FCP4 support it, and are proud to proclaim it. Adobe really took a drop in my esteem.

Exactly. I am a fan of ADOBE having taught myself how to use thier other applications; but the fact that hey do not support my new baby, makes me say 2 words.

So John, you started out on Premiere, as I did... then switched to Vegas, obviously for 24P support. When you first tried Vegas, what were your reactions and impressions? I found it very un-intuitive at first. And I still find it awkward. Granted I haven't fully given it it's chance yet. Anyway, how long did it take you to break the old Premiere habits to be relatively comfortable in Vegas?

I capture in Vegas and render out consecutive TGA files that I bring into premiere or aftereffects. I usually wind up doing the last
edits and sound in Premiere because i like the work flow in it. I render out to uncompressed avi and either bring it straight to encore or use canopus pro coder to make m2v and wav files. I find canopus encodes much faster than encore for the mpeg file plus i can get rid of the uncompressed file and free up space.

I with you guys I'm about to drop 5k on software from adobe and My new best friend DVX100. Im so overly frustrated with the lack of support from adobe. Such a solid company. Why would they ignore such an opportunity to increase compatibility, customer satisfaction, and sales. I don't want to invest in some 3rd party app. if adobe is going to throw in a patch for this who do we contact. I tried to take to them direct through their customers service line but they give me the run around.
Please .............somebody.............I got a film to shoot.

Unless you all are planning to output your footage to a film reel, there's no reason why YOU CAN"T use Premiere Pro and the DVX100. I've been using them both successfully for the past three months with no problems and the "film look" is great in 24pN.

Or simply use DVFilm Maker to convert your 24pA to true 24p footage, and edit in a 24p timeline in Premiere; Problem solved! The hickup with that setup is you'll have to pass your final product back to DVFilm Maker to print to tape if you need to. I personally think it's not that big of a deal.

ok after using Dvfilm to convert does it also convert final product to Mpeg2 so that you can write it to dvd. Have you used After effects with footage from Dvx100. Also I m really looking to do some incredible effects shots like light saber battles and lighting bolts, well lets just say I would like the ability to remake Mortal Kombat the movie. Could I do this with after effects?
