Just got iphone 6s. One new feature is "Live Photos" which while taking a still picture also takes a 3 sec movie. When imported into Apple's Photos app each Live photo becomes 2 files, a movie file and a normal picture file that can be edited. In lightroom the imported Live photo file is only a movie file, which can"t be edited. Can this be changed in a future update so that importing also gives a normal still picture file and a movie file?

Dear Adobe,
You do not listen to your customers wishes and you do not fix what is broken. I am not going so subscribe anytime soon, well, never, I am already gone.
Dear developers, good luck, I am sure you are good hearted.
Regards.

Okay so after talking to support and being told that the green blob issue has been finally solved in Lightroom Classic CC, I took the plunge and upgraded to the subscription plan.  Unfortunately, this information was incorrect - the green blobs are all still there!!  This was my sole reason for upgrading - Classic CC 7.1 doesn't seem to offer much compared to LR6.14, so now this never-ending defect still has not been resolved, and I'll need to contact support in the morning to get the subscription refunded.  Can someone from Adobe please actually give us some clue as to when this ridiculous defect is going to be finally resolved??

After repeatedly upgrading my catalog from LR6 to LR7, *most* of the green blobs have disappeared, leaving a handful of stubborn ones that just refuse to budge. I tried exporting and reimporting, which is what actually seemed to be the breakthrough in getting it to work during the repeated upgrades, but even that doesn't work.  LivePhoto plays just fine in Finder, but stays green inside LR.
