NConvert can't convert HEIC file

Post by MoCon »

NConvert can't convert HEIC file.
But I tried XnViewMP 64, It can view HEIC.
I copied XnViewMP 64 Plugins's Files into NConvert Plugins.

Hello, is .heic supported in the current release?
if I execute this:
nconvert -out jpeg IMG_7934.HEIC

I have this error:
my_error_exit...<Not a JPEG file: starts with 0x00 0x00>
Error: Don't know how to read this picture (IMG_7934.HEIC)

I'm doing something wrong?

thanks.

yes, on windows 10
I don't have microsoft heic image extension as I don't have the store stuff on my system. I have the CopyTrans HEIC for Windows installed and working.

yes same problem here

my_error_exit...<Not a JPEG file: starts with 0x00 0x00>
Error: Don't know how to read this picture (file.heic)

looks like .heic image file type is booming right now
