I got so discouraged with this problem I gave up on the idea of editing video well over a year ago. I have Adobe Premier 6, got it set up and everything worked fine until I tried to export the finished product back to tape on my Canon GL1 camera. I eventually found a post on the old message board that said there was some kind of incompatibility issue between Premier 6 and the Canon GL1 camera and that the manufacturers were either ignoring the problem or pointing fingers at the other guy. The solution was to either go buy another camera or tape deck to export to, or forget it. I'm wondering now if anyone knows whether a fix was ever provided by either manufacturer?
