    My equipment:

    Canon Vixia HRF100

    Settings: Full 1920x1080, 24fps, Cinema Mode, everything else was default.

    playing the raw MTS file on my computer yields a very choppy video with audio sounding like its playing back in slow motion....

    however if i open imovie and select "import video from camera" and play the video in the preview screen, the video is much better BUT the sound although not slow mo sounds very choppy as if i am speaking through a fan....

    what am i doing wrong pls help

    MTS files are not a video format that you can edit. You need to convert it to a quicktime .MOV

    Your camera probably came with software that you have to use to edit it or convert it. If not you'll have to find a way to convert the MTS files.

    Not so sure if iMovie can handle 24p. Try shooting in 30p/60i and seeing how it turns out.

    Ignore the above posting by Zlaxberg. Importing it into iMovie does create a Quicktime .MOV that is designed for editing. No further software needed.
