I recently purchased the Canon Vixia HSF10 and importing the movies taken with it is proving to be a bit of a headache. I've managed to import the AVCHD clips into iMovie, I only get an option for facetime camera and not my Vixia. Please help!
If you are a Canon Vixia HF S10 user, have you ever met any importing or editing problem of its generated AVCHD video files? According to above HF S10 user’s post, it’s easy to get the info that this user met the trouble in transferring AVCHD from Canon Vixia HF S10 to iMovie'11. Actually, the AVCHD is highly compressed and not the iMovie friendly video format, but the Apple InterMediate Codec MOV format is.

Step 2: Click on Format > iMovie and Final Cut Express > Apple Intermediate Codec(AIC) (*.mov), the iMovie native support format. Afterwards, set the output folder as you like or just keep the default one.

Step 4: Click the “Convert” button; it will start convert Canon MTS to AIC MOV for iMoive on Mac OS X immediately. You can find the process in the “Conversion” interface.
