I've followed with interest several threads on the ability of iMovie '09 to import AVCHD Lite video footage from a Panasonic camera, and while there doesn't appear to be 100% agreement, many folks are adamant that the latest updated version of iMovie '09 can recognise and import this codec. With this in mind, I've just purchased a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ10 and have filmed 2 test movies, one shot in AVCHD Lite, the other in Motion JPEG, along with a test still photgraph. I then removed the 16GB SD card from the camera and inserted it directly into the SD card slot on my MBP. The import screen on iMovie appeared automatically, but only displayed one movie available for import, i.e. the Motion JPEG movie. The same happens in iPhoto, but with the option of also importing 2 still photographs (the test photograph, and a photograph that looks like the opening frame of the AVCHD Lite test movie). Is anyone please able to advise how to get iMovie to recognise that there is an AVCHD Lite movie on the SD Card and successfully import it?
