The latest release of Premiere Pro 2015 CC includes support for the HEVC codec and I am able to successfully import HEVC files into Premiere Pro 2015. However, the latest (2015.3 release) of Lightroom apparently still does not include support for importing or playing back HEVC files recorded by my Samsung NX-1 camera. Has anyone else had this problem? Why is Adobe not supporting HEVC in Lightroom but supporting it in Premiere Pro 2015 CC?
I suppose that the lack of any response on this indicates that the Adobe staff who monitor this forum are either unable or unwilling to answer the question of why h.265 files are not recognized and played back in Lightroom (latest version) while they are recognized and played back in Premiere pro CC 2015. On the surface, this seems ridiculous, but if I am missing something it would be nice if Adobe explained why this is.
