“I am attempting to do a HiDef capture from my Cannon 5D2 DSLR to Pinnacle Studio Ultimate 12. Studio does not recognize the files fully. I don’t want to go with analog and lose quality. Is there a way to get Pinnacle Studio to capture HD form my DSLR and edit natively? Any help is greatly appreciated.”
