How to import video from a canon Vixia HF10 camcorder

Hi
Although Lightroom (4.2RC) can "see" the camcorder, and it does import "something" I noticed that the files are staying on the camcorder and not being imported into my regular import folder (alongside that days pictures etc)

Is there any special tricks to getting importing video (*.MTS) into Lr? Or do I need to just use the supplied Pixela Imagemixer 3 SE software that came with te camcorder to import it to a "my videos" folder in windows?!

thanks in advance

When you import, be sure you have "Copy" selected, not "Add". Add will import the files and reference them in the source location (in this case, the video camera). Copy will copy the files from the source to the specified destination, and then Lightroom will reference them in the destination location after import.
