Working with Digital Source Material

The next few sections describe the process of working in Premiere with digital video (DV) source material. If you shot your footage using a DV camera and you have an IEEE 1394 (FireWire/i.Link) card in your computer, you can take advantage of the many benefits of working with DV source material.

Capturing from DV Source

Nonlinear video editing can't get much simpler than this. Premiere has built-in DV support, allowing you to easily hook up your DV source camcorder or deck directly to your computer, transfer digital source footage into Premiere, and then transfer your edited timeline back to the same camcorder or deck. In order to do this, your computer must have an IEEE 1394 connection. If your computer did not come with one, you can purchase one and easily add it to your system. After it is installed, simply plug one end of an IEEE 1394 connection into your camcorder and the other end into the card in your computer, and you're ready to go.
