Re: Just saw this thread.

Unfortunately, it takes forever for my wonky old computer to upload vid files to iMovie.  I am sure that you are right, but I really would like to be able to store stills and vids from the same event within the same program (aperture if possible) for convenience's sake.

I would be curious to know if aperture handles .264 files well.  I haven't used it due to warnings that the files are huge, but I might be ready to give it a try if it will serve my needs (and aperture will recognize and import the files)

thanks for your reply!

I've never tried video files with Aperture, but that may be where the problem is as most cameras still don't have 1080/60. Why don't you use iMovie? I have Aperture, but I've never used it for video, although I have used LightRoom, which will import 1080/60, but if I change anything, it exports at 1080/30. IMovie has no problem and, if you import the 1080 files, you can use the slow motion tool.

That being said, I don't remember if I've imported 1080/60 AVCHD files. My GH3 is new to me and I have been using the .264 setting, not AVCHD. My GH2 used AVCHD but couldn't shoot at 1080/60.
