Are you a Canon Vixia HF R20 owner? If so you may meet some troubles when you import the AVCHD MTS files to Premiere Pro CS5.5 for editing on Mac OS X. Below is a question I found in a forum.

Hello, I am new on Adobe forums and I need a question answered. I have seen that there is no definite answer on how to import .mts files from my Canon Vixia HFR20 to Premiere Pro CS5.5. I get "The file has an unsupported compression type" message. I bought the camera mainly for the HD, so help soon would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in Advance.

In fact, we usually meet these similar troubles on Mac because AVCHD is not a good editing format. To solve the problem about importing Vixia HF R20 recordings to Premiere Pro, the best way is to transcode AVCHD to a compatible vide format for Adobe Premiere on Mac.
