Premiere and 16:9

When I am shooting I have my notebook firewired to the XL1 and use it as a controlmonitor. I also record each take on the harddisk for replays, which I find very convenient.

I am capturing the footage with Premiere 6.0 and the question is:

During the capture the Movie-Capture-Window shows what´s coming from the camera, BUT when shooting in 16:9 mode it shows the vertically streched 4:3 image, just like the viewfinder of the XL1 does.

After the capture, when the clip is moved to the Monitor-Window, the footage is displayed in the correct 16:9 ratio and everythig is fine.

At the moment I am resizing the Movie-Capture-Window during the capture and more or less squeeze the image to its right proportions, so I can see the live footage correctly. This seems like a crude solution to me. Is there any other way to get the Capture-Window to the correct ratio?

Cheers, Peter

Are you using the 16:9 setting in premiere (bit right at the start when the program starts to boot up)?

Seems a bit of dumb question to ask you, but I thought I would.

Hope this helps,

Ed Smith

thanks for the hint Ed,

the problem seems to be the DV300 driver, it occurs only if I use my customized settings of the DV300 on my desktop pc.

But it seems to work fine when I switch to Premiere´s standard PAL 16:9 setting and the IEE1394 device driver. This Pinnacle thing is a mystery to me...

Thanks for the input,
Peter
