  • problem with advc100 preview to external monitor with premiere 1.5

    When I use my advc100 to do firewire preview in premiere, the video will often times cut out for a fraction of a second, leaving a black screen. All of my video is prerendered and is playing back real time. This cutting out happens every few seconds and is quite annoying during an editing session. My other problem is that, sometimes, when programs crash or hang up, if I click off my advc100, it will let go of the program and it will close instantly. If the converter stays on, it will say “not responding” on the program, and just stay up, not allowing me to close it. Yet another problem is that, if I must turn off my converter and turn it back on, it seems that my computer will no longer recognize my firewire harddrive. Are there drivers I’m missing or something? I have windows XP with SP 2. I thought SP 2 was supposed to address many of the firewire problems, but I still have problems all the time. Any help is appreciated.

    I think I may have come closer to solving the “cutting out” problem. It seems that either premiere, or my canopus advc100 is freaking out because the footage is 24p from a DVX. I was testing various different things, to see if I could isolate the problem. I got a new firewire cable, and it still did it. I tried using a camcorder instead of my converter, to output to the TV, and it still did it. I tried using vegas 5, which, weirdly enough, didn’t do it much at all, so I thought maybe it is premiere. I also noticed that in after effects, my external preview starting doing the cut outs when I changed the “interpret footage” of my footage, to 24P advanced. So, what I ended up trying was putting my 24p Premiere timeline, in a 29.97 DV timeline in premiere. This seemed to work pretty well, with far FAR less cutouts than before. Actually, I believe there was one for 5 minutes of footgae, and before it would happen every 3 seconds or so. My only problem now is that, every clip that I bring in to my 29.97 timeline, must be prerendered and converted, because it’s 24p. The other thing is, the motion is stuttery. I was just wondering if, now knowing that my problem has something to do with the 24p footage, is there anything I can do to fix my problem and still keep my footage in a native 24p timeline in premiere?

    Thanks, Dustin

    Check to make sure that windows is not using the firewire port as a network port. Disable the 1394 network connection in control panel > network properties. Also make sure that windows firewall is not enabled on the 1394 port.

    Just a couple of generic things to try.
