capturing home videos with a Magewell USB capture hdmi gen2

Magewell capture device plugin for Premiere Pro

Windows 10

i5-10400

It seems to capture fine, produces a decent .mov file, exports fine to h264, but the phrase "pretending to capture" makes me wonder if it is working properly.

Looking at the Magewell web site 'pretending to capture' appears in their own website screen grabs ... so I suspect it's just a translation or spelling error. They probably meant 'preparing to capture'.

If it works for you and 'actually' captures using their Premiere Pro plugin - then it's likely all good.

That's a brilliant answer and I bet you're right! And I am laughing over the unnecessary concern that the message provoked, leaving me in limbo. But now I feel confident and will probably go ahead and subscribe to Premiere Pro.

 

thanks so much for your time!

From now on I'll tell clients I'm 'pretending to edit' or 'pretending to render'

I asked Magewell Support to confirm your suspicion, but it sounds like it's an Adobe issue after all. Here is Magewell's reply:

 

"I have checked with development team. They told us only file name(“Untitled Clip 01.mov”) and duration(“00:00:04:43”) are provided by our plugin. Other text is provided by Premiere.

 

Best Regards,

Pan.Qian"

Please file a(nother) bug with Magewell. Adobe engineering indicates that the company check Adobe SDK documentation and guidelines. Magewell should contact Adobe if they have any questions.
