"I have a sony hdr sr 11 that records in avchd (.mts) and when i try and import it into the after effects cs5 30 trial it says its damaged or unsupported."
"I have recently bought After Effects CS5 but when I import my HD footage from my AVCHD Sony Camera its really fuzzy and blurry."
Although After Effects CS4 and CS5 announced to supports AVCHD files, obviously not all of its flavors. Some cameras do not flag their streams correctly or add additional, non-standardized data that confuses AE. For those formats unfortunately only converting them before bringing into AE guarantees correct results.
Adobe After Effects supports some filename extensions well—such as MOV, AVI, MXF, FLV, and F4V—denote container file formats rather than denoting a specific audio, video, or image data format.
