Lightroom Classic CC: Support for exporting (not importing) HEIC files?

Now that HEIC is starting to get some reasonable adoption after iOS 11, it’s great that Lightroom Classic CC can import those files. But it would be even better if it could export them too. For various reasons, I end up exporting from Lightroom to Apple, and it seems like a no-brainer for me to use HEIC if Lightroom supported them. (Why not save the extra disk space?)

I know I can export to TIFF or some other lossless format and then use a third-party utility to convert them to HEIC, but that’s too much of a pain. Having native support in the Export workflow would be ideal.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Export as a Live Photo back to Camera Roll?.

3 years already and there's still no sight of supporting Live Photos in Lightroom CC.  Is it really that difficult to be able to back up a Live Photo and be able to export it as Live Photo back to the Camera Roll?

I heard Google Photos was able to do that already.
