I currently have a Canon HG20 video camera. After I shoot video I use handbrake to download the video to my computer. I then import it into Premier Pro CS4 for editing. My question is, is there a quicker way to download video from my camcorder to my Mac Pro? Handbrake is great, but it takes some time. If Handbrake is the best answer, then are there settings that I need to make sure I have checked in order to get a more efficient download? Just didn't know if there was a better way or not. Thanks for your help.

Assuming you're recording in HD (since the HG20 is a AVCHD 1080i camcorder), you shouldn't be using Handbrake - Handbrake isn't really meant for HD footage. Premiere Pro CS4 supports AVCHD directly, so you may want to use its own tools for importing footage.
Take a look here - I didn't read the whole article, but even if it's for windows based, you should be able to convert enough of it to figure out how to do it on the Mac version...
