Chapter 3. Capturing and Adding Footage > Controlling a Camera with the Capture...

Controlling a Camera with the Capture Window

As the name indicates, device control gives a program a means of controlling an external device—in the case of Premiere Elements, it lets you control a DV deck or camera from within Premiere Elements’ Capture window. Device control can also activate a camera or deck to record your finished program (see Chapter 11, “Exporting”).

DV devices can be controlled over the same IEEE 1394 cable that delivers the video and audio, and the plug-ins to control most DV cameras and decks come built into Premiere Elements. In most cases, the generic DV device-control settings work without tweaking. But you can specify your particular camera to ensure full functionality.
