Have been using Aperture V3.1.2 with no issues.I have always imported my images and videos with no problems.Today, imported my raw images but do not see the .mov files.Same camera, Canon 70D, same media cards and Aperture is set to import both JPEG and RAW with RAW as the master.So I know something has changed but after looking for sometime and not sure how to see and import the MOV files. I do get an error that asks me if I want to import uprecognized files or not. So, I guess Aperture is not liking my .MOV files. Appreciate any help!
