Chapter 16. Capturing Video

Chapter 16. Capturing Video

You don’t have to shoot your own video footage to create a program in Premiere. As explained in Chapter 3, “Importing and Managing Clips,” you can import a wide range of digitally stored content, including stills, audio, and, of course, video. Maybe you’ve already started using the files in Premiere’s Sample folder. But chances are, you’re eager to edit your own video footage. Usually, this means getting the video from a tape to your hard drive—a process known as video capture.

In Premiere, all the controls you’ll need for capture are integrated into a single Movie Capture window. You can control a camera or deck from within the capture window, which has built-in presets for controlling most DV cameras and decks. The capture window also incorporates tabbed panels for viewing the current capture settings, and for logging clips into a batch list. Like the Movie Capture window, the batch list window includes a pull-down menu that eliminates the need for one in the menu bar.
