I presently have a ibook G4


The notebook is a great little machine. It was my very first introduction to the MAC world.

Here is my issue. I just got this awesome sony HD Camcorder. (SR7) It format's the hi-def footage on AVCHD. The footage is unreal and the still are fantastic. The stupid program that Sony supplied is for PC only.
I need a program that can let me transfer the video to my MAC. I have read around and they say FCP can do it but the program is like 1000K (Screw that) I have Imovie 5 and it doesn't support the file format. I am kind of stuck and need help. I do not want to return the camera simply because of compatibility issues. I know I am not the first with this problem. CAN ANYONE HELP PLEASE.

Final Cut Studio 2 just added that ability to import the AVCHD last month. Actual if I understand the situation, it actually converts it to the Apple Prores codec.

The Apple consumer products do not handle that format as far as I know. Perhaps one of the convertion programs available will do it. Somehow I doubt that though.
