     Easiest converter to use is Blaze Media Pro.

    Sorenson Squeeze converts to several Avid compatible formats too, and it's coming bundled with Avid, no need to shop for another software. Regarding Your question: sorry, this means no direct import, but Squeeze on a fast machine is quite efficient.
