Hi 4h4h270, I tested HEIC file saving, too.
I recognized the same problems in the past.

XnViewMP use the Windows HEIC Plugin from Microsoft App Store for writing HEIC files.
If the picture width or height size is odd, you will see the multiple lines in the saved heic file.

See the post to XnViewMP 0.94: viewtopic.php?f=62&t=39677&p=159426&hilit=heic#p159426

Your color errors (green is not the same green or red is not the same red) should be problems of the HEIC plugin.

Do you use the HEIC Plugin from Microsoft App Store or the XnView's plugin?

I have the same problem. I tested with 0.94.3 using MS HEIC plugin, and 0.98.2 using XnView's plugin. Both have problems of 0 byte and strange black lines. But only 0.98.2 has color errors.
And when I using MS Photo app, no color errors exists. So maybe the decoder of Xnview's heif plugin has bugs, just as @masterjp said.

But color errors are not limited to that sample, almost all images I tested can reproduce. Belows are comparision about opening Xnview encoded heic and png, in Xnview and MS Photo App.

I only posted results about color errors. For black lines and 0 byte error, you need to use other samples. For convenience I'll post 4h4h270's links below

black lines sample: https://i.imgur.com/46shuMJ.png
0 byte sample: https://i.imgur.com/C8a9uYC.png

my results are as same as No.1, 4 image from 4h4h270's post.

Saving png as heic, then open them in Xnview 0.98.2 and MS Photo. In Xnview these 2 images are different, but in Photo they look the same. If I use Xnview 0.94, they also look the same

update: I upload these 2 images to my iPhone and they also look different. I use color picker on iphone to get RGB value. It turns out to be the same as Xnview for same image format, and different for same region of 2 images. So it may be another bug of MS HEIC plugin?
