I have been playing with AVCHD and FCP is supposed to be able to be able to import it with no problem. Wrong. Unfortunately importing AVCHD into FCP gives choppy video. Converting the video to .mov via Voltaic and then importing to FCP gives a normal smooth video. When will Apple figure out that most new camcorders don't have firewire any more. They need to either update FCP or add the conversion software themselves.
