It explains how to convert Panasonic HC-V770 shootings to Apple Intermediate Codec (AIC) MOV for use in iMovie/FCE on Mac OS X EI Capitan or Yosemite with lossless quality.

The Panasonic HC-V770 is a typically feature-rich high-end camcorder from Panasonic. If you don’t feel the need for 4K, the HC-V770 is a great choice. It provides high-quality Full HD video that’s sure to impress. The top resolution of the HC-V770 is 1080p Full HD, running at 50 progressive frames a second. This records at 28Mbits/sec in AVCHD mode and 50Mbits/sec in MP4 mode. The MP4 option also provides the facility to shoot 720p and iFrame, which uses a 960 x 540 resolution (one quarter Full HD) at 25 progressive frames a second and 28Mbits/sec data rate.
