One of my friends has Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 digital camera to shoot videos in her spare time. She tried to import AVCHD Lite format from Lumix ZS7 in 720p to iMovie 8, and it seemed to import find. But when she starts playing the video in iMovie, the video is fast forward and the speech is in normal speed. Even she exported a project with the video, the same problem happens.
Well, one of the suggestions is to upgrade to iMovie 9 and this may solve the problem. However, another solution is to convert the AVCHD Lite videos to the native iMovie format .dv or .mov format with Panasonic AVCHD Lite converter.
