Canon GL2 and Premiere Pro
Has anyone had any luck capturing to Adobe Premiere 6 via firewire. If so, what setting. I see that the GL1 is listed, so I tried that to no avail. Premeire doesn't recognize the device at all. Oddly enough my friend's Avid Express works just fine.

I know this was discussed some time ago, but since the GL2 has been out for a while now, someone has had to have figured this out.

Any ideas??


BTW, Win2K, P4 1.8G etc.

Hallo Tom, I've tried the xm2 with Premiere 6 and 6.5. It was a real Plug'n'Play. I've connected the camera, the first time he ask some drivers of windows or the firewire card. Then I turn on the camcorder and started premiere. the connection was here even with the standard dv control settings.

Maybe is your firewire card not configured correctly.

I too have not had any issues with Premiere 6 or 6.5 with my GL2 (I'm running 2K as well)

Interesting. What settings are you using for device control. I have Device Control 2.0 with Canon and the GL1A setting. Is this different on yours?

Hallo Tom,
I'm using win98 with the sound blaster audigy ex as firewire card. My actual device control is Control 2.0 with Canon Standard but it also worked with Control 2.0 standard without setting to Canon.

What kind of firewire card do you have?

VHS --> GL1 --> Premiere
I would like to transfer VHS Footage to Premiere, My Idea is to connect the VIDEO out of my VCR and connect it to the GL1's AV/ IN/OUT and from there connect the GL1 Firewire cable to the computer and capture the video with Premiere.

Problem. I can't seem to get this to work. Probabbly because this camera does not do Analog to Digital Instantly. Has anyone here done this with success?

(I do know how to do it by recording it to the MiniDV and then playing it back into premiere but is there anyway to do this with out RECORDING to a DV Tape.

Maybe this is one of the upgrade features in the GL2? It is explained on page 103,104 and 106 of the GL2 manual.

You are right, the gl-1 cannot do the pass through. You need to record it to the dv tape, and then to the computer. The gl-2 does have that feature, though. I just got a gl-1 myself, Yay!

Graham Bernard November 11th, 2002 12:31 AM

Sooo.. EARLIWorm

"I just got a gl-1 myself, Yay!" Does that mean you are happy you DON'T have pass thru- because you just your GL-1? OR are you mistyping your response because you're so enthusiastic 'bout your NEW GL-2? Please clarify as I'm confused.

Reagrds - Grazie

I have a gl-1.
Yeah, I am very happy with it. I do not really need the pass through. It would be nice, But I can deal without it.

Greg Patrick November 21st, 2002 07:55 PM

i was wondering if the pass-through capability is solely dependent on the camera rather than the capture card and/or burning software...


Tylar Mccoy November 21st, 2002 10:54 PM

I think you can buy a capture card that can do analog pass through. IM not sure tho.

Firewire with Premiere 6.0
I am wondering what I am doing wrong when trying to capture video from my GL2 to premiere 6.0 via firewire. I am connecting the firewire to the included port in the back of my Dell. I turn the gl2 on before opening premiere, as people have advised. When I go to video capture, it will play the video smoothly in the preview screen, and allow me to capture. However, when i play back caputured files, it just shows about a frame every second. So a 10 second clip is maybe a dozen frames. Is the problem that the GL2 is not listed under the canon cameras you can select from in the capture settings? I have tried selecting the GL1 instead, as well as leaving it as a generic device.

Any advice from someone (who perhaps has the same setup) would be greatly appreciated.

When you are playing back and your camera is hooked up to the computer through firewire still it will play through the camera. Just take the sucker out of the computer, then playing back should be fine.

Allen Danze May 5th, 2003 03:10 PM

Thanks a lot Ryan. I forgot about that in my ignorance in using firewire devices. I just got the GL2 a week ago, and before that i only had an analog vidcam.
