Inspired by a demo Steve did, my plan was to start a video project in the field using iMovie on my new iPad Pro then finish it at home using Final Cut Pro. The problem, though, is the AVCHD video format my Canon camcorder records. iMovie seems to import media only from Photos, and Photos doesn’t recognize the AVCHD video file on the SD card. I use a dongle to plug into the USB-C port; it imports photo files from an SD card, just not video files. What’s the secret sauce?
