Wonder if someone could possibly help me.I asked for help converting Panasonic's1080/50p files - preserving the brilliant quality of the original - into equivalent for mac. My operating system is 10.6.8 with Imovie '09. I also need to be able to edit them.

Have there been any improvements during the last year. Roxio Toast for example and also Clip Wrap or any other ones. I have Handbrake, but it is slow and quite complicated and difficult to edit. So I don't mind buying something that will be easy to work with.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received as I know there is a lot of dross out there.

Secondly, could you recommend a videodownloader for the net etc. Many thanks

Best wishes, Applecbj (We are now nearly 2013 there must be some improvements!)

If your iMovie is up to date, you should be able to edit that video directly in iMovie now.

As for a video downloader, I use FastestTube (an extension for Safari) and MacTubes (both free) to grab YouTube videos. I don't have any need to capture outside of YouTube so I can't recommend anything for other sites.

Does 50/60p not indicate 50/60 frames per second? I didn't think that iMovie could edit 50/60p video without some sort of conversion first?

As 50/60i video creates 50/60 half frames per second, sort of 25/30 fps, iMovie can edit it?

Any clarification on the above would help the confusion I suffer whenever I read that iMovie can or cannot edit 50/60fps video, depending on the poster.

Not conversion, but re-wrapping for 50/60p:

A workflow:
Edit 1080/50p and burn a disk

Sorry my first answer was incorrect - I was focusing on the AVCHD part and didn't notice the 50/60p part.
