Thanks for the reply.
I mean simple two dimensional animation. That's hard enough for new people getting interested in making short animated videos.

Thank you all for the effort for trying to help me.
I will try out the EndItAll. I know that the problem is that something usurps the firewire input that stops all other progs to use it BUT which one! Probably EndItAll will sort that out

Thanks again.

Dear billyfromconsett and stingman, To answer billy first, it is surely firewire, webcam software and camera turned off, Panasonic set to VCR and everything properly checked.

I switched on/off several time and rebooted several times. I also done the same with web cam unplugged. No joy. I did capture with the scanner installed so I ...

Tried to reboot without any luck. The computer seems to see a camera with no pictures in it. It keeps saying : Empty.
I have a scanner also but the capture used to work with the scanner installed.

Dear All, I recently tried to capture a video using a Panasonic video camera and Adobe Premier Pro 2.0. The computer (Dell with Windows XP/SP2) recognizes that the camera is attached. However. Pinnacle and PP2 both says that the capture device is off line. I have a web cam attached to the computer. ...
