Zero issues. I do not use this for multi-cam but edit 4K exclusively.

Others seem to have issues with H.265 footage. Which sources are you using?
Now that the cat #19 is out of the bag, test it as much as you can and use the subforum.

What kind of issues are people having with H265 (HEVC) ?

Im on an M1 Air myself and thats why I'm looking to make an upgrade this year. I dont seem to have HEVC issues myself but it depends on what the issues are.

There are several posts about using h.264/h.265 hardware decoding problems using an m3 pro chip. Me myself I have problems with 10bit 4k footage from sony cameras. I also upgraded from a m1 MacBookPro, which had no problems with the same footage at all.

We hope BMD will sort it out, sooner than later...

Neither did we observe any such issue on a fully loaded M2 Studio or a M2 MBP Max with Sony or Canon HEVC footage.
Seems to be limited to M3. I also hope they sort it out, would be so nice to have an M3 for Blender.

Uli, when editing not exporting I assume, right? Because I have no issues exporting. As you know I edit BRAW, but I’m willing to test h264/h265.

Thank you. What happens exactly when editing h264/5? I’ll give it a try.

General performance issues and false Media Offline.
Not my own observations, I don't have M3, but collected reports. Could be clips out of Sony cameras only.
