Canon R6 videos are H265, why can't my new PD19 not read them?

Hi,
I now am shooting videos with my Canon R6 camera. I try to import them (H265 files) into my new PD19, it claims they are an unsupported format.
Handbrake easily reads the file and can convert to H264. I even payed Microsoft the 99 cents to get a copy of the HEVC codex.
What am I missing?

Thanks

Probably nothing. You might need to attach a sample video file for a better answer. My guess, Canon Log with HEVC 4:2:2 10-bit which PD would not support.

Option would be do conversion with HandBrake as you have noted or change camera settings to a format supported by PD and potentially give up some quality for compatibility.

Thanks Jeff will try a different setting in camera.

Try using a setting that outputs to H.265 8bit /10bit 4:2:0. This would be supported by PowerDirector. The color sampling seems to be the issue with your file (4:2:2 vs 4:2:0)

I use 4:2:2 AVI all the time, if that adds anything to the conversation. HP Envy Phoenix/4thGen i7-4770(4@3.4GHz~turbo>3.9)/Nvidia GTX 960(4GB)/16GB DDR3/7,200rpm/w10x64---
Canon Vixia HV30/HF-M40/HF-M41/HF-G20/Olympus E-PL5. Tape capture using 4 VCR, TBC, Elite BVP4+, Sony D8 camcorder with TBC.
