Can Adobe Premiere Pro Be Made To Work With Analog Capture Cards?

    Allow me to describe my situation:

    With Adobe Premiere Pro, I am running an analog video capture device,
    the (LifeView FlyVideo Bt848 PCI) video capture card.

    Also, I am running Windows XP, which, had no trouble acknowledging the
    capture card, and loaded the appropriate drivers for it, as other
    programs in my copy of XP access the card perfectly.

    In fact, Adobe Premiere Pro does not see my analog video capture card,
    and this truly may be a possibility, as I am aware that Pro does not
    conform to all capture devices.

    However, with my experience in the past, through different versions of
    Premiere, all the older versions have in fact acknowledged my same
    capture card.

    Another thing to mention, while at the mall recently, and paging
    through a very intensive book on Premiere Pro, I came across a page
    that detailed a screen in Pro where the capture devices are shown. For
    all intent and purposes, the window was the New Project window, where
    under Available Presets, is a box which shows capture devices/presets.
    While the picture in the book showed the exact same two options that
    my version of Pro has, which are the DV-NTSC, and the DV-PAL, the book
    also showed one more interesting entry under DV-PAL, and that was the
    word, Analog. Obviously meaning the settings for an analog capture
    device. My version of Pro does not have Analog listed.

    Could it be that perhaps I only need some type of a preset for my
    analog capture device, or is it a know fact that my exact capture
    device listed above is in fact not compatible with Premiere Pro? Was
    does Pro not acknowledge my capture card?

    Any help is greatly appreciated, as I wish to use Pro to capture with.

    Thank you.

    Seems most likely that the card mfr has not updated their driver for
    Premiere Pro. You'll need to contact the mfr to find out whether this is
    even possible.
