I'm currently using an old Pinnacle DV200 w/Premiere 6.5, on an 800Mhz PC, & now want a new PC w/WindowsXP. From research I know my DV200 will not work with WindowsXP. My ? is, can I use a generic firewire card (basic Pyro) w/Premiere6.5, to output back to my DV cam without having to render the whole timeline? My DV200 uses Pinnacles Instant VideoRT (a plugin), so only effects & graphics have to be rendered, a feature I liked. Thanx ahead a time!
You should be able to use a pyro card and just render the graphics and effects that need to be rendered (or multilayered clips), not the whole project. My friend uses the pyro and just has to render those things and he has not had any problems with that card at all. Good Luck!
