Hi, grateful for any advice, three years ago iPhoto would automatically import movie clips from my compact camera as well as the stills - a Canon at that time.  Now, Sony Cyber-shot, upgraded OS (10.8.3), it has imported all the photos via the SD card, no problem, but not the movies.  The information on the Sony tells me that the movies are stored in AVC HD format.  Any ideas on what could be happening?

Best wishes Amer

    You may want to set your camera to shoot something other than AVCHD
