As we all know, AVCHD format is one of the most popular camcorder formats on the market in that it can compress and deliver the videos better. Although many camcorder manufactories, such as Canon, Sony, Panasonic and JVC announce that the AVCHD videos shotted by their camcorder are supported by the most common edit tools, such as iMovie, FCP, Avid Media Composer and so on, in fact many users met the problems while importing the 1080 60p AVCHD videos to FCP. The reason why the editing tools, such as FCP/iMovie support such kind of videos hardly is that 1080 60p/50p video is non-standard.
