I tried using Premiere Pro CS4, and now Final Cut Express 4. Both programs pride themselves with their ability to process the AVCHD format, but I can't for the life of me get them to import these files. I have tried with .mts format video clips from a Panasonic camcorder and a Sony Camera. All files are on my hard drive, VLC can play them. What am I missing?? Is OSX missing a codec that I need to install or something? Running Snow Leopard, fully updated. Please help, I need to make a DVD as a christmas present!
