Hard to believe it, but yes, I need to capture Mini DV from a Canon XHA1. I'm trying to capture HDV w/ audio at 60i. This is a tape capture and I want to use the old Log and Capture feature.
I've read that you can capture via Premiere if you run Premiere in ROSETTA. The M1 / Apple Silicone version of Premiere doesn't even have a capture option.
Running Premiere 2022 or 2023 in Rosetta will show you the Capture menu option, but it won't connect to your device (the camera) - what's odd is that the transport controls (forward/back/play/pause) on the computer will control the camera, but the actual image and sound doesn't show and you can't capture.
iMovie lets you capture but the settings are... trash.
Quicktime lets you capture but the settings are... also trash.
Final Cut Pro X supposedly lets you capture with more configurations, but I don't want to drop $300 to log and capture Mini-DV tapes lol.
Any ideas here? Beyond "buy a BMD capture device"...
Have you tried to capture even though you don't see an image? Are you able to? In my old days of capturing sometimes there would be no image or sound during the capture process but the capture would still come in as expected.
