No HEIC support?

Post by Farbauti »

Hi there,

According to the Xn Classic supports heic/heif files.
I updated to the latest version ( XnView 2.51.2 for Windows ).
I also purchased Microsoft's HEVC extension.

Now XnView can (at least) display the thumbnail - but it cannot open the file.
Why is that?
What did I wrong?

Regards, Tom.

You need to use XnView MP for full HEIC support

You can probably use ifheic susie plugin from github, Does not work for me because I use an operating system that is too old for this plugin but should work with newer ones (7 and up). Put ifheic.spi in XnView's Plugins folder and try.

as similar imageview softwares are more popular for lightweight versions, such as faststone viewer, honeyview, irfanview, imagine viewer (by Sejin Chun), etc., you can really consider to have similar format support and functions in the classic version, not MP
