HEIF support?

Post by vlasto77 »

Hi,

do you plan to add support (read/write) for HEIF? http://nokiatech.github.io/heif/

Thanks,
Vlasto

Having the new iPhone-s are HEVC/HEIF by default it is becoming quite important.

HEIF is now supported in XnView Classic, and soon in XnView MP & XnConvert

Hi,
in 2017 you somewhat announced HEIF support in XnViewMP.
Now, in 2019 XnViewMP-0.93.1 seems to still not support HEIF.
Will it be supported in the near future or am I missing something?

Many thanks for XnViewMP,
Helmut

on windows it's supported via a plugin, and on MacOSX, it's supported
