AVCHD videos

Hi there. I am new to Fotomagico, using version 4, and need help with videos. I use a Panasonic Lumix TZ60 which produces avchd videos which then play on QuickTime. Do I need to convert these videos from avchd in order to play them in my slideshow. When I insert them they do not play and just look like a normal slide.
Any advice or knowledge will be gratefully received!
