Here's a solution to the problem of importing and editing Sony's AVCHD files for edit on the mac. Credit to TechWizard. His podcast #11 does a great job of explaining his work.

    thanks for the post ... though seriously, those who bought an AVCHD camera and were shocked and/or surprised when it didn't work with their chosen NLE needs their heads testing!

    so at first glance this solution seems to require the purchase of more than US$400 of software? I might be missing something.

    Mr. Mees, do I detect a hint of impatient impertinence here? I DO hope so. I do think that you, Jerry and David H. have some sort of ever-lasting gobstopper of patience coursing through your veins.

    I like the description of the podcast:

    "So you took the plunge and bought Sony’s new AVC- HD format High Definition HDR- SR1 camcorder. You get it home and join the rest of us early adopters in the “Cant edit in Final Cut Pro Club” Thanks Sony or rather Apple." the HECK is this Apple's fault? Sony came out with that camera, so blame Sony. Don't blame a company for NOT making something compatible with this consumer camera. CONSUMER...Final Cut PRO...
