What is the best way to import AVCHD? I've been copying the whole folder from the memory card onto the hardrive, but that's pretty cumbersome. For photos, I import with Lightroom, which allows me to give each photo a unique name. Thanks in advance for your help.
The primary editing software I use is Premiere Pro CS5 for Windows 7. I am not looking to change or reincode the AVCHD files, just to import or "ingest" them so that they can be viewed and edited with any compatible software. Thanks you.
