Lightroom Ecosystem, Classic, Camera Raw: 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 Photos.app, 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 AVIF and HEIF in Adobe products.

It's sad that Photoshop or Lightroom doesn't support exporting to new efficient file formats as like as AVIF and HEIF :(
