Panasonic HDC-SD9 video import crashes iMovie

Advertisement

Everytime I try to import video from my Panasonic HDC-SD9 using iMovie it crashes the program.
A google search on the problem led me to installing the Quicktime plugin Perian 1.1 but this did nothing to help the issue.
Other people have recommended purchasing ShedWorx’s VoltaicHD Converter but I'd rather not have to purchase software to import video into a mac that just supposed to work with everything... additionally ShedWork's site said that Intel Macs should be able to import AVCHD files.
Anyone have any luck fixing this issue? Or know when Apple plans on supporting this camera?
Thanks in advance for any help, I appreciate it.
