H.265 (HEVC) codec support?

      I’m wondering why the big 4 editing software makers can’t seem to come up with support for native H.265 / HEVC files for their software when little no-name editors like Cyberlink have support already built in? Is it just not popular enough (yet)? Is it the copyright/money thing? This new codec is far superior to h.264 in so many ways it seems silly for these mega companies to hold off on plugins, etc. to support it.

      Adding new codecs/wrappers costs them a lot of money. Before they make theinvestment, they want to make sure they’ll make their money back. It took a while for some of them to support AVCHD too.

      As soon as the newest codec H.265/HEVC has released out on video market, it is popular among the video studios including Samsung. Comparing with the H.264 codec, H.265/HEVC is much higher and smaller, which has become the highlight. However, owing to its high compression, it is not easy for Cyberlink or Premiere to afford.
