We have thrown together a quick little PDF tutorial on how to import AVCHD footage (specifically footage from a Sony NX5) into Avid Media Composer 6.5 using AMA. This tutorial assumes you are a beginner to Avid Media Composer, so it goes through all the steps in quite a bit of detail.
You can download the PDF here.
For more detailed technical information, it’s also worth checking out Avid’s AVCHD AMA Plug-in Guide.
