No HEIC EXIF Metadata in v. 2.50

Post by Igor99 »

I've installed the fresh XnView Classic 2.50 and HEIF plugin from www.xnview.com/download/plugins/heif_x32.zip.
The program doesn't show any EXIF metadata for HEIC files (exported from iPhone), although Windows 10 File properties shows the EXIF correctly.
The EXIF information for other image types (e.g. JPEG) is displayed correctly in XnView, the HEIC images and their thumbnails are shown correctly too.

According to the discussion here, the HEIC support has been fixed recently, so this must be a regression.

Just checked the latest XnView MP 0.98.4 (64 bit).
The HEIC metadata is shown correctly, and there was no need to install the HEIF plugin.
