Unable to Connect to Capture Driver Message
When attempting to capture a movie Premiere 6.5 defaults to capture in Microsoft DV on my PC. I want to use Quicktime, but when I go to edit the settings and change the capture format to Quicktime Capture I get the “Unable to Connect to Capture Driver” Message. I would use DV/IEEE 1394 capture, but I went to a workshop the other day (Taught on Macs, I’m on PC) and at the seminar I was told that quicktime captures video uncompressed. I’m trying to improve quality since I saw “digitation” in the highlights of the bride’s forehead at the last wedding I shot on which I used DV to capture.
Someone suggested I use a video capture card instead of firewire, but I am so far unsatisfied with the results I’ve been getting from the cutrate card. If anyone has any suggestions as to fixing the quicktime or making other adjustments to improve my output, I’d appreciate it.
