Re: NConvert can't convert HEIC file

Dear developers, I have the same problem as described.

I use NCONVERT v7.136, XnViewMP 1.4.4.
I tried to replace heif.dll from XnViewMP Plugins folder to NCONVERT Plugins, it didn't help.

XnViewMP does its job of reading and converting .HEIC files correctly.

Thank you.
