I'm an executive director, last week we got this Canon XA10, and we have used it to shoot reality lifestyle shows for local tv stations. We can manipulate editing software skillfully, now after ingesting Canon XA10 MTS video files into iMovie 11, we find that iMovie could not recognize the footage. Any insights with MTS and iMovie workflow?
