I bought GoPro Hero Black 7. It records 1080 240 FPV in HEVC. My present sofware doesn't support it. So I bought Premiere Elements 201, beciuse here: Version Comparison | Adobe Premiere Elements 2019 vs 2018, 15, 14 we can find information in third line: Support for VFR, HEIF (macOS), and HEVC (macOS 10.13 and above) NEW. So can you give me solution? Beacuse I can't import this file to program.
What is your operating system?
Windows 10 64 Bit.
That answer is unacceptable. I have a windows 10 machine, and I'm not going to convert my video first through some lossy program. Instead I will shop for a better Video editing tool.
This a user to user forum. Any suggestion from someone willing to give you their time is acceptable. You should say "thank you". If you want to complain to Adobe there are other ways to do it.
"Support for VFR, HEIF (macOS), and HEVC (macOS 10.13 and above)"
There are several solutions.....
HEVC is also called "H.265". It is a compression scheme that makes smaller, not better, files than the more universal H.264.
Your GoPro can be set to use H.264.
GoPro themselves talks about it here: https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/hevc They explain it without saying it is "lossy". In fact, if there is a loss, I doubt that it will be noticeable. Handbrake only converts, it does not edit.
GoPro also provides a link to their own description on using Handbrake: https://gopro.com/help/articles/how_to/how-to-convert-gopro-hevc-videos-to-h-264-using-handbrake
There is a good YouTube about the subject: Hero6 footage not working? Here's why and how to fix it – HEVC H265 explained - YouTube
Since "HEVC" is part of the Apple iOS system, you can buy a Mac.
If you want to stick to Windows, there is no way to add the H.265 codec. Perhaps the best alternative software is Cyberlink PowerDirector where advertising says it does support the codec.
Just because I was searching for an answer to the same problem I am having with my GoPro videos from my Hero8: Adobe has added HEVC support to the new Premiere Elements 2020 for Windows as well (not just the Mac version).
It doesn´t solve it for us using Premiere Elements 2019 though... Just another reason to spend money again on the new version.
