I just got this great new little Lumix. I believe I found the video (AVCHD) files on the media card - they have a .MTS extension - but I cannot get anything on my mac to read them. I tried AE, QT, iMovie, MPEG streamclip).
Are the files 1080i or 1080 60p? I have a Panasonic TM700 that will capture 1080 60p in the .MTS format. Unfortunatly Macs won't let you import these files, Macs don't have USB 3 yet either. CS5 After Effects and Sony Vegas pro 9 on Windows 7 support the 1080 60p with custom settings. Also Windows will support the new USB 3 cards. My Mac died recently and until Apple comes up to speed with these importand features, I won't be replacing it.
