Re: Cannot Import HEVC to iPad Pro 12”

Sad thing is that it used to work. I would film 4k on my gopro hero 5 and import to my ipad pro 2nd gen with the lightning sd adapter. I would edit my content with Lumafusion with no issue.     

I think the issue is with IOS an not GoPro.

 

Its been months now and it still doesn't work.

Re: Cannot Import HEVC to iPad Pro 12”

I'm not sure what changed then. I've reset my ipad i've also formated my sd card and no luck..  Now if I upload the large 4k video to a cloud service like google fotos or onedrive I am able to download to my ipad and edit my videos.. The issue is that uploading 4k content even with 50mb or 100mb of speed take alot of time. Before i would just plug in the Apple lightning adapter and it would take 5 to 10min max.

Re: Cannot Import HEVC to iPad Pro 12”

I've found a very easy work around for this issue without requiring any outside software, which takes a matter of seconds, IF you happen to own an iOS or Mac device that DOES correctly place the HEVC GoPro files (e.g., iPhone 7, 7+, 8, 8+, X, iPhone XS/XS Max, >=2006 Macbook Pro).

 

First, download the HEVC video (4k/60, 2.7k/60 etc.) to the device where it DOES work. If you're doing this on an iPhone, it will directly copy the images to your Photos. If you're copying your HVEC videos to a Mac, open the Photos app and import the files by dragging them into the Photos window.

 

In the case of a compatible iPhone (e.g, 8, X, XS, etc.)*, make sure in Settings->Photos, under "Transfer to Mac or PC" you have the "Automatic" setting enabled. Now, go to the HEVC video that you want to work on your GoPro, and choose to edit it. You only need to make the tiniest edit, like trimming a fraction of a second from the start or finish of the video. The iPhone will then ask to confirm saving this as a new file. Choose to continue. Voila, this new file will play on an iPad Pro. If you have iCloud Photos enabled, it will automatically copy to your iPad and work just fine. Otherwise, you'll have to get the file to you iPad another way (AirDrop perhaps). I guess what is happening is Apple is re-saving the file in an HEVC format that works properly on the iPad Pro, rather than the (apparently broken) GoPro HEVC format.

 

*I haven't tried this on a Mac, but the procedure is probably largely the same. The only issue is that the Photos app on the Mac seems to edit videos directly in-video, without saving as a new video first, and I'm not sure this is enough to "fix" the GoPro HEVC file by rewriting it as an Apple file. You may need to edit in QuickTime (included with the Mac) or make a copy of the file to make the above trick work.

There's one more work-around, and that's to install the GoPro app on the iPad Pro itself and then download videos to the iPad Pro via the app directly from the GoPro. But, this is time-consuming.  When you download videos from the GoPro over its wifi and then save them to the phone and to Photos from there, the GoPro app converts the native HEVC file to H.264 and saves it to the iPad Pro in a playable format. However, this whole process takes a long time (GoPro wifi transfer is very slow and file conversion is very slow) and winds up with a non-HEVC file. My Mac tells me these H.264 files are actually *smaller* than the HEVC file, but still at 4k/60 or 2.7k/60, so I'm not sure if there's some quality loss or what -- I can't detect it on the iPad Pro. The above method, using an iPhone or Mac, saves a lot of time.

Re: Cannot Import HEVC to iPad Pro 12”

Guys I've tried something. I actually copied a 4k 60fps file shot on HERO 6 Black to my Macbook Pro and then Airdrop it to my iPad Pro 11" and then Airdrop ot back to my laptop to check the file format. It remained as HEVC. Would it be a problem on the card reader itself?

So AirDrop doesn’t convert h.265 files to h.264?

 

 

And, uploading h.265 from GoPro can be done via LIGHTNING SD READER through h.265 capable phones, such as my iPhone X? I’ve been uploading via WiFi to my iPhone X and my WiFi is decent so it doesn’t take very long to upload videos. But doing it this way also keeps h.265 in original format?

 

Also, I upload my videos to iCloud Drive. I was reading somewhere else on GoPro that if you “save to files” h.265 straight from the GoPro app it preserves h.265 format. But if you upload from camera roll to iCloud Drive it “checks” the file and converts it to h.264 format. 

 

Can an anyone else confirm this please?

Re: Cannot Import HEVC to iPad Pro 12”

So I’ve been fiddling around with this for the last couple weeks and I may have figured out a solution combining the above solutions listed.

1. Download videos from Hero 7 using WiFi to HEVC compatible device (iPhone X in my case) using WiFi.
2. Share video to iCloud Drive.
3. Download video into iCloud Drive on iPad Pro.
4. Save video to iPad Pro.

If there is any downsizing going on, I sure as hell can’t tell. Shot a couple 2.7k in 240FPS and the videos look pretty **bleep** good on my 60 inch 4K LG.
