"So linux to the rescue. I do all my video editing in kdenlive, so the attempt at using iMovie was a bit of an experiment. With linux, I just connect my camera, and add the .MTS files to the project. From there, they can be dragged on to the time line and away you go. No fuss, no convoluted import process which does a conversion of the file to an intermediate codec causing a loss of quality.
