Tip #739: Premiere: No Support for FireWire DV Capture
FireWire capture of DV media is no longer supported on Macs.
This tip first appeared on Adobe’s support page. While this won’t affect a lot of folks, it is still worth knowing.
Starting with macOS 10.15 Catalina, Premiere Pro, Audition, and Adobe Media Encoder no longer support the capture of DV and HDV over FireWire.
This change does not impact other forms of tape capture.
You can still edit DV/HDV files that have previously been captured.
DV/HDV capture is still available with Premiere Pro on Windows.
If you need access to DV/HDV ingest you can:
- On macOS: Use Premiere Pro 12.x and 13.x on macOS 10.13.6 (High Sierra) or 10.14 (Mojave)
- On Windows: Continue to use the latest versions of Premiere Pro with no impact.
