    I'll post up some pictures later but to me they look the same, pictures still have the god damn watercolor painting effect caused by the heavy noise reduction.

    Can you also post a short video? I want to try the compatibility in Final Cut Pro.

    Thanks

    I think they change because it's compress file 2x smaller and offers the same quality pictures and videos.

    Is live photos also .HEIC from now on? Can someone post one live photo taken with IOS11?

    I would assume that live photos doesn't have those seperate .MOV files anymore, because you can change the key photo from now on?

    Thanks. You helped me.

    So: It's not possible to import the HEVC file into Final Cut Pro. :(

    Thanks, I'm also interested in HEVC video examples from iOS 11 on iPhone 7 (Plus). Could you please also record and upload one in 4k? Thank you very much.

    Yes sorry, I wanted to remove the metadata so edited then transferred, but I think iMovie on the iPhone actually encoded to AVC. Let me try again with full video...

    Ok try this:

    Interesting, maybe only 7 series can play back 4k HEVC.

    Apple said older devices should be able to play them via software decoding ...

    Interesting. I downloaded the file and Sierra's Quicktime Player can't play it. VLC can open it and it starts to play, and I can even see the image briefly, but the video gets corrupted and doesn't play properly.

    I have a feeling HEVC will be a headache for compatibility until more devices support it. I mean, if freaking VLC, the swiss army knife of media players, can't play it, I doubt much outside High Sierra and iOS 11 devices will!

    Try in macOS 10.13 High Sierra. The files import fine into Photos.

    VLC is a lousy HEVC player. Try playing it in IINA.

    But better yet, just use QuickTime in High Sierra. See here:
