iMovie: Importing both HD and SD content with Sony HDR series cameras
iMovie ’08, ’09, and ’11 can import both AVCHD (high definition) and MPEG-2 (standard definition) content from Sony HDR-CX11, HDRCX12, HDR-SR1 and HDR-SR7 cameras with the following guidelines.
- This issue is resolved for iMovie ’11 when you upgrade to version 9.0.1 or later.
- For versions previous to iMovie ’11 v9.0.1, including iMovie ’08, ’09, and ’11 (v9.0 only):
To import the AVCHD content from the camera when MPEG-2 content has also been recorded, you must first import and erase the MPEG-2 content from the camera. You should then be able to import the AVCHD content.
For more information, see iMovie '11: Some camcorder video clips may not be visible in the Camera Import window.
