Will Hitfilm support the Samsung NX1 H.265 files soon!

Hi just got a NX1 and it shoots 4K H.265 format but i can not find anything that can edit it.

Will Hitfilm be supporting the H.265 format very soon for editing and everything??

    I haven't seen any comments that HF3 can support H.265 videl, it's better you should transcode it to other video format that HF3 has claimed that it supports.

    I agree with @emma24xia. I don't know much about H265 but I suspect it might be compressed and therefore not ideal for editing. Convert to Prores on Mac or DNxHD on windows, if they support 4k.

    As the other two have said, transcoding it first is probably the best option no matter what. The h.265 format is the successor of the h.264, which was quite compressed already, and with the new one they managed to compress the image even further, which, I suspect, will not be fun to edit, if you're not on a monster of a pc.
