Running Premiere 5.x on DC10+ card (analog in&out)
Video editting on a computer is an easy and cheap way to produce your
videos. A good semiprofesional program to use is Premiere from Pinnacle.
The advantage of an analog in&out is that you can digitalise analogue
(e.g. VHS) video footage. However, the DC30+ hardware which comes with
the software is relative expensive. One option is to look for a second
hand version. Another is to use the more simple (home version) software
and hardware DC10+. The disadventage is that its more limited and less
flexible in use. But: it is possible to use the DC10+ card and the
Premiere 5.x software. To do this you need to follow the instructions
we found on: http://plugins.members.easyspace.com/dll.htm
Here you find a few files to de-install the DC10+ software from your
computer and the files you have to swap in the original DC30+ driver
software, they are packed into two zipp files. Follow the instructions
on the site. It is important that you install the Premiere 5.x software
after de-installing the DC10+ software and before installing the DC30+
software. Our experiences were very good, the problem with
non-synchronic sound did not occur in our system.
