iPhone HEVC file Share options

Post by GaryG45 »

I have some HEVC MOV files from an iPhone8+ that I'm starting to edit, and I'm not sure what Share options I should use to save them for computer playback. My previous work with VS has been with files from VHS-C and Video8 tapes, so I'm not familiar with HEVC (H265) files. I have the HEVC codec from Microsoft installed on my PC, and have had no problems doing test edits. For the Share options, I think I should use MOV with a profile of QuickTime (1920 x 1080, 30p). Is there another option that I should use? Below is the MediaInfo from one of the clips.

Thanks,
Gary

You could certainly use mov as the output format since that is the format of your original HEVC clips. (.Mov is just a carrier format which can cover a variety of video made with different codecs.) But you could also use the standard HEVC/H.265 output format of .mp4. You'll find three presets under the MPEG-4 button in Share, and you create your own Properties for your output there if you want. Share > MOV also gives you a number of HEVC options.

I notice you have a variable frame rate which is common with smartphones, though VS has problems with some of it. But use 30 fps for your output and you should be OK.

Ken,
Thanks for the quick reply. I thought I had looked at the mp4 options, but obviously I didn't. Must have been brain freeze. I should be fine now. Thanks again for your help.
