How to import/convert AVCHD MTS/M2TS files to iPhoto for Mac

Question 1: I use iPhoto’11 on my iMac. I recently bought the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 which records video in MTS format. iPhoto can recognize and import all the photos but cannot view or play MTS video files. Is there other software I must install to view/edit these MTS video files?

Question 2: I have 100’s of archived AVCHD files in the .MTS format. They are stored on my Mac internal hard drive and I am running the latest FCE and ilife 11. Neither QuickTime, iMovie, iPhoto or FCE will recognise or play them (let alone edit). I have tried the log and transfer procedure in FCE but all the .MTS files appear greyed out. I have also altered the ‘easy setup’ options to try different setups -all as yet to no avail.
