This may help: Using AVCHD video with iPhoto '11

Although that does allow for importing, the issue is the very poor quality. "wavy" lines are noticed - as if the scan lines are laggy. ClipWare cleans it up a bit, but is still there. From what I've read it appears due to the wrapper, but that just adds a hurdle for having to convert before importing.

As far as I know, what this is about is that when playing back the video in iPhoto it doesn't deinterlace it (at least not propelry). That's why the ”waves” are seen.
What I fin strange is that if I use Quick Look in the Finder to view the video, or open it up in QuickTime Player the video plays back without the waves, and thus seems to be deinterlaced.
Why iPhoto don't seem to use the same way of playback as QuickTime Player and Quick Look is what I find strange. I thought all software were using QuickTime? Maybe it is, but for some reason it's different in iPhoto.

Did you ever find a solution?

None that I've seen that doesn't have the blasted annoying wavy lines.
I've been meaning to play around with it some more, what with Christmas coming up ... would be great if Apple would put something in place. It's not like there's competition going on between Sony and Apple's own HDcam.
