Hi,

 

I'm trying to capture Mini DV PAL tapes via Macbook Pro (OSX 10.15.4) with a Firewire 800 to TB addapter with Premiere Pro 14.0.4.

 

My settings are:

 

- VTR is a Sony Camera DCR-PC350E PAL

- Quicktime DV PAL sequence

- Device Control setting: DV/HDV Device Control (it works, i can play, stop the camera)

- Capture Settings: HDV (can not switch to DV, not available on PP 14.0.4 ?? )

 

In conclusion, I can control the VTR ( Sony Camera DCR-PC350E PAL) with device control, but I can not change Capture Settings to DV, then PP 14.0.4 does not recognize the camera and DV stream. On the Capture window appear:

 

    WRONG INPUT FORMAT. TRY CHANGING CAMERA FORMAT OR CAPTURE SETTING

 

As double check, I have also tested with basic Mac software, and Device Control and DV PAL video capture works smoothly.

 

Is there a way to capture DV PAL via Firewire with PP 14.0.4? I need a professional solution with PP 14.0.4 if is possible.

 

Many Thanks,

 

C,

Its a no show for DV due to Catalina.

The only option you have it downgrade your OS.

I found a simple solution by looking on the net, just use iMovie to capture your dv footages, its still working on macOS Big Sur. Then do not exporte your clips with imovie but click on the media then files on the desckstop header bar then locate (it will show you where the app is stocking the video) then take it  from there to your desktop (do not let the video there it will take you storage space) and just put it in an adobe premiere sequence which the right settings, you can now cut it and only keep what you need in differents shorters clips then highlight all your clips and export them with the effect render way (not the classic way to render) choose apple pro res and use the sequence settings. Now you have your full tape and your derushed clips ! 
Thats what im using as a french skateboard filmaker using the sony VX1000 and a macbook pro 2015
