I am using a SONY HDR HC7 with good results when inputting & outputting via iLink (firewire) on HD only.
When I edit a DV project in PREMIERE CS3 the source clip appears ok, but once on the timeline it converts to severe cropping (about middle 1/3 of picture showing). In other words, conversion to DV crops and I have no other way of rendering quality DV from HD source.
I have tried forcing recognition of HD Anamorphic and other pre-settings using the INTERPRET FOOTAGE command, to no avail.
I have a feeling this may be a bug (I have used the recent update patch). Does anyone have any solution?
