Hello folks...

 

Wondering if Premiere or Premiere Pro accepts mini-DV's .M2T file format? I want to capture a ton of personal footage and save the files as .MOVs. 

 

Thanks!

Are you on Mac? Usually DV files are captured as .MOV from jump, not .M2T.

I was going to use my Win 10 box since it's older and still has FW800 ports -- my camera has FW800 out. (My 2017 iMac only has USB-3 and Thunderbolt ports.)

 

Thanks.

Windows captures mini dv as dv-avi (about 13 gig/hour)

Mini dv can also carry HDV which is either .mpeg (Premiere) or m2t (HDV split).

Right... and the program I've been using to capture, HDV Split, captures in .M2T format. I guess I have two questions then:

 

1. Can Premiere or Premiere Pro capture high-def, mini-DV footage from a 12yo Canon Vixia HV30? 

 

2. If not, can it open those files captured by HDV Split and convert them to, say, .MOVs? 

 

Thanks much.

1. yes (I have the HV20)

2. why do you need to convert to mov. m2t is mpeg2.

Well, I noticed that QT Player could not play the files (at least, the version in Windows 10, anyway). I want them in a format that has some amount of universal playback capability.

Well, my main domestic platform is Mac OS. I use Windows only for work-related stuff. So, for archiving and viewing personal videos, I'd prefer a Mac solution. I can only capture the video on my PC, but I just want to be able to play it back on my Mac. 

 

It seems Premiere’s the way to go, yes?
