PRE 2018 latest version is not supporting the HEVC codec uses by Apples new IOS on iPhones. When importing iPhone X video's you wil get a codec error saying that HEVC is not supported. A solution for this issues would be great for all iPhone users editing in high resolution.

PRE 2018 does not support hevc codecs captured through any source. PRE 2019 supports editing of hevc codec files but only on Mac. As a workaround, you will first need to convert these hevc files to H.264/AVC codecs and then you can use those converted files to edit in PRE. Or, while capturing footages in iPhone X, you can set them to capture in H.264 codecs and not in hevc codecs.
