Capturing only in B/W but I want colour!
on Feb 2, 2003 at 1:04:37 am

1) Finally got my Mercury capture card hooked up the other day, only to learn that it is capturing in black and white. Does anyone know why?

2) Secondly, the only software I can capture from VHS with is the software that came with my Mercury card, but I want to be able to use it with Premiere and Studio. Premiere says "the DV device is unavailable for capture control" (I have a DV card too), and Studio 7 is crashing as always for some reason, and particularly when I tell it to capture from my analogue card. Again, can anyone help?

Cheers,

GAV

Hi,
1. check the cable, update driver
2. in order to get movie from VHS to PC throung DV connection, you need : VHS->analog to DV covertor ->firewire card.

Thanks for the reply.

1) The cable seems to be OK. How would I update my driver?
2) I am capturing through my analogue Mercury TV capture card, not my DV card.

Any ideas?

Hi,
Premiere version 6 or later only use DV (firewire) connection. If you want to capture analog with premiere you have to use old version like 5 :) or use other capture application
