lack of HEVC support on windows 10

PostTue Jul 10, 2018 3:03 am

I can import footage from my Gopro 6 in the HEVC format and Resolve will play the audio but I can only get a blacked out video shot. I saw in another forum that people with Macs have had some luck with the file type, but is there any hope for us Windows users?

Thank you

My Studio Version Beta 6 refuses to ingest HEVC Files.

I guess it all lays in the encoder. I encoded the same video with two codecs: x265 and nVidia HEVC. When imported into resolve both video streams get opened, but the second one looks corrupted after import.

I'm not sure if it can be helped r/n. If I were you I'd re-encode the video with different encoder set at a bit higher bitrate than the source material to not lose quality and import that one into Resolve.

Is it just me or does the second one also look a bit lighter / has a slightly different gamma?

I think more importantly, HEVC output needs to be added to Resolve 15. Preferably with a user
adjustable Constant Quality option.

That's odd, I see no problems with HEVC.
Are you running Windows 10 with the latest GPU drivers?

Hello,

What type of GPU do you have?
What are the settings Preferences / Configuration => GPU in Davinci Resolve?

OS?
Which version? Signature?

I attach two file types which are not:

Resolve does not support the Matroska container you would have to remux the video, the same with a blue-ray video stream.

I don't mind that the matroska format is not supported - there are work arounds - but I do mind that the
distribution format for todays UHD Premium HDR TV sets is not supported - H265 *.mts - with no work around.

Resolve could easily support it (even accelerated) with HW support by using NVEnc Encoder/Decoder for PC with NVIDIA 1000 series GPU.

Hold on, you mind that Resolve does not support reading ripped blu-ray disks?

No, this is a poor wrong allegation.
I am creating UHD BD's from my own video material.

Hello
But in this case: do it in a format compatible with the formats supported by BMD.
