Starting Premiere
1) Go to Apple Menu - Control Panels - Extensions Manager. Select "Premiere Settings"
("DV Settings on some computers), if not already selected. Restart computer if you
changed the settings.
2) Optional Step - Open the System Folder in the Hard drive. Then open the Preferences
Folder and throw the Adobe Premiere preferences file into the Trash. This step clears
any settings that someone else might have set up in Premiere.
3) In the Launcher, choose Media. Click on the Adobe Premiere 5.1 icon to launch
Premiere.
4) If prompted to register for QDesign, hit Return, or click on Cancel.
5) Choose Multimedia Settings (for ITEC 870 Projects), or choose your own project
settings.
6) Click on the pullout tab at the bottom of the screen. Check the monitor viewing size
by clicking on the black and white checkerboard TV icon. Make sure that the volume on
the sound is turned up at least half-way (speaker icon).
7) In Premiere, choose Window - Arrange. Choose the dimensions that your monitor size
is set at. If your monitor is not set at one of the sizes in the Arrange menu, change the
monitor view size.
8) Click on the Project Window to select it. Save your project with the suffix ".ppj" to
distinguish it from the clips you save. (You may want to create a folder for your project
and clips).
Capturing Video in Premiere
1) Turn on the equipment that you will be capturing from (connect it to the computer, if
necessary). If using the Sony DV Hardware Codec Converter to capture from an analog
source (like the VCR), turn it on and choose "Analog In".
2) In Premiere, choose File - Capture - Movie Capture to open the capture window. If
prompted to give a "reel name", just press Return. (Naming reels can be useful for
-1-
logging footage from several videotapes- see Premiere book.)
3) Choose Movie Capture - Video Input. In the Video Input window, choose Source from
the pull-down menu at the top of the window (Compression will probably be showing in this
menu).
4) Select input device from the Digitizer pull-down menu - for the Converter, or any
device entering the Firewire port, choose DV Video as the source. Select OK to close the
window.
5) Choose Movie Capture - Audio Input. In the Audio Input window, choose Source from
the pull-down menu at the top of the window (Compression will probably be showing in this
menu).
6) Select input device from the Device pull-down menu - for the Converter, or any device
entering the Firewire port, choose DV Audio as the source. In the Speaker pull-down
menu, select Sound On, so you can monitor the sound. Select OK to close the window.
7) Press play on the VCR, camcorder, or other source. You should see and hear what is
playing in the Capture Window. (If you hear an echo, turn down the volume on the VCR's
monitor). Find the part of your tape that you want to digitize, play the tape, and click on
the Record button in the capture window a few seconds before the point in the tape
where you want your clip to start (to give you room for editing and using dissolves later).
Watch and listen to the clip being recorded. Do not worry if the image is jumpy. This does
not effect the captured clip. Click the mouse a few seconds after the point in the tape
that you want the clip to end.
8) To save your recorded clip, close it's window, and click Save when prompted. Name
your clip and save it in a folder on the desktop. You can now import the clip into Premiere
using the File - Import - File command.
