Are you suggesting that pro sports shooters will be shooting raw?

HEIF is currently supported for Import in Lightroom.

But it converts heif to jpg which defeats the object of heif correct?

Wrong. Lightroom does not convert any image type.

HEIF files (from iPhone for example) are imported as HEIF

So they're imported as HEIF and can they be saved out as HEIF?

No, they can't be exported as (edited) HEIF. Just like you can't export raw files as (edited) raw. When you export images you have the same choice in file formats as with any other imported image.

Which is exactly what I'm asking for, the option to save into heif format.
Browsers now have the option to open heif files so why not be able to take advantage of the smaller (lossless) file size of the heif in our daily use going forward?

Rikk: any movement on exporting as HEIF/HEIC from Lightroom? I know, the Olympics are canceled, but we may still save the WNBA season! :-)

Well, I just did a job with my wonderful new R6, came back and the new .HIF format is not taking kindly to LR CC version 3.4 

 

What do I do now?
