Just got a Sony SR7 HDD camcorder, which shoots in AVCHD. Since I'm on a PPC, iMovie '08 will not import the movies. So I bought Voltaic. I imported my very first test video using Voltaic...a whopping 1 min HD extravaganza. The import worked ok, but it took 20 min (!). (I copied the mts file from the cam to my fastest internal drive, and used a dedicated scratch disk for the conversion, so I know the slowdown is not at the camera interface) At this rate, a 30min vid would take 10 hours to convert. If I can't get the conversion time down, I need to rethink my Sony purchase. Again, I have a G5 Quad 2.5ghz, with 6GB RAM, and 10.4.11. Any tips on getting a better conversion time would be much appreciated. Better yet, a workaround to get iMovie to see the files directly would be even better.
