Hi, I'm using Adobe Lightroom CC 9.4. I can see EOS R5 raw files (CR3) and H.264 video (mp4) files, but it can't load H.265 (HEVC) mp4 files. I don't need to edit videos on Lightroom CC but still want to manage all files (Stars and Color labels, etc) on there.
Is there any settings to load H.265 to Lightroom CC or is there any plan to support it?
Lightroom CC 9.4 (Camera Raw 12.4)
Canon EOS R5
4K UHD 59.94P IPB + Canon Log enabled
[NOTE] HEVC (H.265) file is generated when Canon Log is enabled.
LR does support H.265, but LR's video support has always been riddled with problems, and its error messages are useless.
I suspect the issue could be not with H.265 but with the log encoding--I'm not sure, but I don't think LR supports any of the various log encodings. Try shooting an H.265 video with log turned off. (This article claims that H.265 is used for 8K video while 4K is in H.264. The manual doesn't say.)

Oh, yes, Canon Log might be the key, but I can't disable it because this is what I exactly want to use.
I just hope Lightroom CC will support 10bit Canon Log (H.265, mp4). No need to edit movie but I want to organize (star, color level etc...) both photos and videos in one place.

Just some info Lightroom Classic 9.4 is not referred to as Lightroom CC you should use LrC 9.4
"Oh, yes, Canon Log might be the key, but I can't disable it because this is what I exactly want to use."
I recommend that you see if LR can import a sample H.265 video from the camera (without C-Log). If LR can't import the non-log video, then you should post a bug report:
Be sure to include the first ten lines of the menu command Help > System Info. Upload the video to Dropbox or similar (not Youtube) and include a sharing link.
If LR can import the non-log video but not the log video, then post a feature request instead of a bug report.
Clunky work around here:
LRC still has a nervous breakdown looking at the files locally, but they're stored in the right place for viewing in FCPX or even Photos.
