XHA1 and Premiere capture preview problems
Running CS3 on a brand new install of XP Pro at work.
Got a quad-core Intel CPU, 4 GB of ram, and 2.25 TB of SATA HDD on RAID 0
GPU is an nVidia GT8800 512MB card output to two 22" Asus HD LCD monitors via DVI-D.

Capturing HDV 1080 60i over firewire. Get this message in the preview window saying that I need to monitor the video in the camera's monitor. Okay, I can live with that. Oh, wait... it won't let me split the recording based on scene detection! Anybody know of any way around that without going to cineform or something like that (i.e., without paying any money)?

I had hoped that the system would be sexy enough to handle that, but apparently its not. I'm guessing my weak point is the GPU.

Had the same problem on an AMD FX64 3.6Ghz w/ 2GB of Ram, 512MB video card, and 2TB of SATA HDD w/out a RAID on my home computer. Downloaded the free trial of cineform and it fixed it for me, no problems now. I know I can do the same thing with my computer at work, but my company can't afford to buy me a softie for my shotgun, let alone cineform or a hardware accelerator.

Any suggestions?

I use HDVSplit to capture. It'll split each scene into separate files and name them sequentially according to your specifications. You can also run footage files through it and it'll split those too.

David, your system is not the weak point, Adobe is the weak point. They don't know how to write scene detection for HDV in 2008. 50$ Pinnacle Studio has it.

Try HDVSplit as Julian suggested and cross your fingers. It doesn't work with my JVC ProHD camcorder.

Ok, thanks guys. Any thoughts on Premiere fixing that problem soon and releasing a free fix?

Adam Gold August 12th, 2008 01:07 PM

Um, not likely. They don't see it as a problem. It's a "feature."

Maybe with the release of CS4 next year, but don't hold your breath...

They seem to be working really hard on features with extremely limited audience, such as automatic speech transcription, but they never seem to fix things we all need, like HDV scene detect. Sad.

But what I've seen looks promising regarding Premiere CS4.
