Canon HG10 and FCS 1

Can't seem to find the answer after two days of searching so here goes:

I have several hours of 24p footage from an HG10 that needs to be edited into a 720, 30p timeline. I have not upgraded to FCS2 yet because I have too many ongoing projects and don't want to risk it.
So my question is, to convert the AVCHD footage, can I just go out and purchase ILife 08, convert it through Imovie, then bring the converted clips into FCP?
When IMovie 08 converts the footage, does it create AIC clips independant of Imovie, or can you only access the clips through IMovie?

Don't expect that workflow to be compatible; your best bet would be to use Cineform or another intermediary to convert the AVCHD format into something FCS1 will work with. However for the cost of Cineform you'd be better off getting FCS2.

There is no need to spend a lot of money.

This will probably work för you, your material will be converted into AIC

You can download the program and test it

Total cost: 30 USD
