HG20 project settings in PPro CS4?
I'm having some difficulty editing footage shot with an HG20. Premiere has no problem playing the clips (no stuttering, freezing, etc,) but something looks off with the frame rate. All the movement looks strange. Here's a clip I uploaded so you can see what I'm talking about: [ame="http://www.vimeo.com/6443990"]Untitled on Vimeo[/ame]
I shot in MXP at 60i (in Cine mode, not sure if that makes a difference).
When setting up a new project in Premiere none of the presets seem to work. I used the AVCHD>1080i30 (60i) first and the clip appears in the timeline with a yellow bar above it signaling that the frame rates don't match.
I tried all the other AVCHD settings and received similar results.
Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? This is my first experience with AVCHD so forgive me for being especially ignorant.

The yellow bar means you have interlaced footage on a progressive timeline or visa versa. Just right-click on the footage and then "field options", then "always deinterlace" and the yellow bar will go away. It really doesn't matter because the output file will just conform to your project settings. Regarding the clip, I don't see anything wrong.
