Issues editing 60P footage on the MAC

This is driving me crazy, shot a bunch of stuff in 60P and its been a pain in the but trying to edit or more so convert the footage so I can edit. ClipWrap loses the video on conversions, any other frame rate is fine. I tried other programs like Voltaic (crashes) and ISkysoft (doesn't support proRez) I have a working solution with IMedia Converter but it takes a very long time. Even bought stupid Final Cut X and it doesn't see 60P footage. Anyone have solutions?

It might not be a solution that you're looking for, but switch to Premiere Pro CS 5.5. It has no problem importing this footage.

I'm having the same problem, my workflow up to now has been to convert 50i and 25p in voltaic, but as you say it crashes with Sony's 50p.

looking at the Voltaic website, it seems Sony and Panasonic have just published a paper on 1st July updating the spec of AVCHD to include 50/60p, so that developers will now be able to start working on upgrading third party converters like Voltaic.

I'm sticking with 25p on my NX70 for now, not long to wait I hope

I've had good results with Foxreal HD convertor. It has ProRes settings.

60P stuff? I've had no problems with other frame rates just 60P guess because very few camera actually shoot 60P in 1080 especially AVCHD ones.

Seems to work, although painfully slow to render. Thanks for the tip.
