Chapter 16. Capturing Video > Using Batch Capture

Using Batch Capture

Before you batch-capture, check the scratch disk, available disk space, capture settings, device-control settings, and deck, if necessary. (These topics are covered earlier in this chapter.) If everything is set properly, you need to attend to the batch capture only when you are required to change source tapes.

To batch-capture clips:

1.
Open a project and select a bin to store the captured clips.

If you don't specify a bin in a project, Premiere will prompt you to create an external bin on the hard drive.

2.
Open a batch list (Figure 16.66), and if necessary, click to the left of any clip in the list to change its icon, and thereby its capture status:

Figure 16.66. Icons indicate the status of items in the batch list, and buttons allow you to sort and capture items.


No icon—indicates that the clip will not be captured when you click Capture.

Diamond —indicates that the clip will be captured when you click Capture.

Check —indicates that the clip has been captured.

X —indicates that an error occurred during capture.

3.
Click the Capture button .

Premiere prompts you to insert the tape, or reel, associated with the first item in the batch list (Figure 16.67).

4.
Supply the appropriate tape and click OK.

As each clip is captured, the diamond icon will change into a check (Figure 16.68). If an error occurs, the diamond will change into an X. Clips are saved onto the disk you specified as the scratch disk for capturing (see "Specifying a Scratch Disk," earlier in this chapter). If prompted again, insert the appropriate tape and click OK to continue capturing. To stop capture, press .

5.
With the batch list window selected, choose File > Save.

The current status of the items in the list is saved.
