I started the video project last year (with an old DV Camera that soon became defective) and since february this year I work with the Panasonic V707. I am working on a spiritual movie, that will be presented on my homepage only. After importing my 1080 50p/60p AVCHD films from V707 into iMovie, I get failed many times.

After a long search (google, forums) I understand the reason. For imovie editing workflow, the first clip you add to the project has a different frame rate from the project, iMovie prompts you to adjust the project frame rate to match. Therefore, the video clip from your Panasonic 1080 50p or 1080 60p camcorder doesn’t match the project frame rate and as a result, imovie will not support my 1080/50p mts footage by my Panasonic V707.
