    Okay, so I'm stumped. I'm recording video at the top 60p 28m AVCHD. Then trying to import the video files right into iMovie via the direct USB connection to the camera. iMovie sees the RX1, but fails to see the individual movie clips, so there/s no way to import them.
    Anyone have any suggestions?

    imovie does not support AVCHD at 60p but it will recognise 60i
    I would use a converter to change to a mov file and edit that. I use wondershare.
    Not the I do video much. but i bought the program just in case. Its easy too.
    Others here more qualified to answer your question.
    From what I have read AVCHD is a pain in the backside. I agree btw.

    I have some decent media encoders on my end (Apple Compressor & Adobe Media Encoder) - and I know that Adobe Media Encoder can crack into the hidden .MTS stream video, and re-encode from there.
    However, I'm not sure whether that method is possibly bypassing improved quality from the original source video? Also, I don't know the closest 1:1 match, so the tests I ran resulted in new video clips dozens of times larger in file size. Not wise...
