If you need to export to tape, it's pretty simple. Simply select your sequence, go up under File, and choose Export, and instead of choosing Media, select Tape. You will be greeted by this dialog box, and in general you can simply go with the defaults. Now there's a couple of things you want to keep in mind. First, make sure your camera is plugged in, and it's set to VCR mode or to the record mode to the tape, as opposed to camera mode. Now if for some reason when you press Record the camera is not actually recording but it's playing back, go ahead and check your General Preferences and go to Device Control.
And under Device Control, this is where we select DV and HDV Control, and we had selected DV. But under Options you may want to select your brand of camera, and if you know the Device Type, that is great, but in our case, I know we are going to a Panasonic, and I'm going to press OK. Now we can go ahead and Export to Tape. I'm going to simply press Record and make sure you've put in a fresh tape and you don't have the tape in there that you recorded your original media from, because it will write over all of that footage.
Press Record, and if anything needs to be rendered, Premiere Pro will render that prior to starting to play it back and recording it onto the tape. (female speaker: --it's happening all over the world. Every day people are harnessing the power of the sun, and it's literally lighting up their lives.) Once the recording is done, you'll see a Recording Successful, the camera will actually stop, and you can simply hit Close and go ahead, rewind the tape and check playback.
If you have a need to archive your final show back on tape, you can see Exporting back to DV or HDV is a rather straightforward process.
