I would like to be able to directly import videos from my camera's SD card into iPhoto, but when I put the card in my Mac, only some of the videos show up. If I look in Finder, I can see all the clips, open them in Quicktime, export them to the computer's drive, and then import them into iPhoto (all one at a time), but obviously that is a pain. I apparently can't use the import function in iPhoto to manually import the files from the SD card, because when I try it tells me the fileare in an unreadable format. (The camera records video in AVCHD format, and stores the data in a folder structure that shows up as a package in Finder. iPhoto doesn't let me open the package to go through the folders from its Import browser window, so I can only try to open the top folder, which iPhoto apparently can't parse.)


Any ideas welcome.
