    It won't import by default, even if I change the extension to MP4. What's the quickest, easiest, cheapest way I can convert it to something that will?

  2. If it's a one-off project, why not run the trial of the latest version of Premiere to get the project finished.

    Otherwise, you can use ffmpeg to convert to any of the formats CS6 can handle.

    Or move over to Resolve. (It handles HEVC, but I haven't personally tried it with iPhone footage.)

    Not surprising that CS6 would NOT accept HEVC. CS6 came out in 2012. The first approved version of HEVC came out in 2013, so it would of course not be included in the codecs list.

    As with anything else that needs pre-converting for a good working digital intermediate: AVIsynth (or variations) and accompanying encoder, or ffmpeg, or proprietary encoder. For performance & quality reasons, best to go with encoding to an Intra-frame based format (Cineform, ProRes, DNXHD, Lagarith, etc), even if it uses lots of space.

    If you are into avisynth you can create a fake uncompressed .AVI file of the HEVC file with AVFS. Can just drag and drop the .AVS file onto the AVFS.exe, the look in C:\Volumes for your fake uncompressed .AVI file. Can then be imported into anything.

    I've never managed to get AVFS or any other similar things to work.

    What would I used in AviSynth? I think I tried LSMASH and it worked in VDub2 but there was an error when I actually tried to save it as a Cineform MOV.

  8. If you have problems with cineform, you can save it as prores, or avc in intra configuration (actually long gop will work)

    Do a small export/ import test into CS6 before committing fully

    It doesn't seem to matter how I export, it crashes. Memory errors, runtime terminations, etc.

    Here's the script:
    Code:
    v = LwLibAVVideoSource("file.mov")
    a = LwLibAVAudioSource("file.mov")
    AudioDub(v,a)

    Are you using an older library ?

    Perhaps you need to use updated plugin of either lsmash , or ffms2

    BTW - for MOV, MP4 containers (iso base media formats) , you can use LSMASHVideoSource() , and it will open without indexing


    Alternatively, you can try ffmpeg or some ffmpeg based GUI to convert it, or vdub2 should be able to open it natively too

    I get "out of memory" when I try to save it after opening natively.
