HEVC video CUT with direct-stream-copy (aka. without re-encoding) was successful with the help of XMEDIA recode software!
It works only with short (under 10min) videos. So do not try to cut full films!
Just TRY IT! And share you experience!

Right. That's infantile. I could just as easily say: "only newbies use a GUI". Neither is true, even for the majority of cases.
The truth is: it is meaningless TO YOU!
Personally, I couldn't give a crap about HEVC until say ~3 years from now, because it won't affect my day-to-day working in the least until then. No sense attempting making or editing something when NONE of my family, friends, colleagues or clients are using HEVC yet, particularly not with hardware.
I categorize this on par with "laboratory tests NOW enable Bluray to achieve 200layers and 2TB!" or "Cats upgrade SpeedRazr to UHD with 300 workarounds!".
Not being techno savvy, I just did a crash-course on UHD/HEVC.
On what I read, I had difficulty in distinguishing the hype from the tripe.
And then I scratch my bald pate (head to you) on this 'Fantastic News' and I ask myself "What is the point ?"
Even if you can film 4K (and part of the hype/tripe revolves around the blatant re-writing of accepted video standards or vertical resolution now becomes horizontal and even that is not 4096 pixels), who would restrict that filming to 10 minutes to be able to edit/cut that without re-encode in the stated s/w ?
Talk about a non-event.
I kind of like the idea of 4K using the horizontal resolution, as then the aspect ratio isn't a factor. 3840x2160 or 3840x1000 it's still referred to as 4K (even though it's not actually 4096 pixels).
1920x1080 and 1920x800 etc, being generally referred to as 1080p still seems to confuse some people at times.
3840x??? is not referred to as 4k, it's referred to as UHD. 4k is 4096x??.
2k, 2.7k, 3k, 4k, 5k, 8k, etc all are DCI film designations. The UHD equivalent of 2k is UHD1, and 4k is UHD2. Not all that intuitive, I know, but you might as well get used to it, as that is what it will be referred to in the media and by the industry.

In any case it is good that possible to edit HEVC. Only the absence of UltraBD movie restrains interest.
And this list could use some serious culling.
I happened to be in an appliance store last week so I made my way to the TV section for my first look at a UHD TV. The Sony TV I looked at was running a fairly underwhelming demonstration video advertising the extra goodness of UHD compared to HD. Only I'm fairly certain the video referred to it as "4k".
