OK, so I know I should get Final Cut Pro if I'm using the XA20, but until then, teach me a bit about using my XA20 with iMovie. I've already figured out the hard way that iMovie won't important 60fps files from the XA20, I just see a bunch of 60 with lined through red circles when I try to import into iMovie.
Any advice for a noob here?
It’s confirmed (at least till now) we can’t import the raw Full HD 60/50p video to iMovie for freely editing. Because 1080 50p and 60p are not standard video formats, they are unsupported by iMovie. iMovie can smoothly edit videos at 1080p 24/25/30, 1080i 50/60, 720p 24/25/30. So we have to change Canon XA201080 60p first. iMovie best supported format and codec is Apple Intermedaite codec MOV format, once you transcode Canon XA20 AVCHD to AIC in 25p/30p , you can play and edit Canon XA20 AVCHD in iMovie smoothly.
