I Upgraded my Adobe Premiere Elements 12 to version 13 recently. To my disappointment, I noticed that "DV and HDV captures" are not available in Version 13. I greatly appreciate if those options are restored back in the newly (Ver 13) released upgrade.

I too am dumbfounded as to why such a backward step should go into an upgraded version. I have upgraded from PE9 to 13. Being able to capture from a DV or HDV camera into PE is surely a basic function of video takers. Nowadays there are many other formats of video shooting, but a DV or HDV camera is surely the most fundamental filming medium. Please restore this functionality into an otherwise very good product.

You can add me to the list of disappointed upgraders. Why would you remove the HDV import feature from Premiere Elements? I see that there is a workaround described in Adobe's "Removed features and unsupported file formats" document, but that's far less convenient than having the capture feature you included in the past. I'm disappointed.
