    Thanks for this post. This was helpful to me, as I’m finally getting around to using FCP 6 with my Canon HG10 footage. I’ve been using iMovie, which has become quite a nice product, but didn’t support 24p.

    Today I tried the VoltaicHD converter, and it seemed to work well. Seeing my footage at 24p instead of 60i or 30p was eye-opening. Definitely more cinematic. Voltaic now lists several cameras as supported. I think the VHD product was $40.

    But I like the idea of using software I already own, and staying with one vendor, if possible, so I will try out your iMovie-JES-FCP solution, and see how that works.

    Thanks again for taking time to share with your fellow filmmakers, Edward!
