I'm importing more or less 72.000 images and videos high resolution 1080p or 4K.
But lightroom 6.3 import just 68.000, why???? And .mts videos change creation date by date downloaded in my iMac.

Can you help me?

How do you know there were 72000? Was there an error message at the end of the import telling you some photos couldn't be imported?

No, the difference is about 2000 items, not necessarily pictures. Are there some XMP files in that folder? That would explain it. XMP files are counted as items in the Finder, but not as pictures in Lightroom.

No, invisible files aren't counted in the Finder. Could it be there are about 2000 video files? Lightroom tells you it has 37822 pictures, if I understand it correctly. The Finder tells you there are 39982 items. That could be those 37822 pictures and 2160 videos...

I think I'm going to give up. I don't speak Spanish, but I suppose that 'fotografias' means 'pictures'. MP4, mov and mts files are videos, so I assume they are not counted as 'fotografias'. They are 'items' however, so they are counted as 'items' together with the jpg files. That would be my explanation. If that's wrong, someone else can try it. I'm going to bed.

You could try using Get Info on each of the subfolders, to work out where your missing files are. It's possible it's counting sidecar files (e.g. xmp, mts, the, etc.) or it's possible that you have some raw+jpeg pairs and it's just importing the raw files.

I use a small program on the iMac called Visual Differ. It can be found here http://visualdiffer.com

You drag a folder to each side of the interface and it compares them, showing the missing files. You can even compare documents and it will show differences in text.

Once identified, you can copy missing files directly between sides.

It's extremely handy.
