H.265 & Sony Movie Studio: Trancode HEVC/H.265 for Editing in Sony Movie Studio 13 Platinum/Suite

High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), I'd like to call it H.265, because it sounds cool. It's the new successor to Advanced Video Coding (AVC), also known as H.264. The idea of HEVC is to offer the same level of picture quality as AVC, but with better compression, so there's less data to deal with, It can support 4k resolutions up to 8192 x 4320, so some of the 4K footage encoded by H.265 codec.

It seems that it is not so friendly when you try to edit H.265 files in Sony Movie Studio 13 Platinum/Suite. According to the Sony's official website, Sony Movie Studio can support MPEG-2, MPEG-4, QuickTime, MPG, WMV, XAVC S format but doesn’t provide any information about its codec. Owning to the high system requirements, it is very slow to import the H.265 video to Sony Movie Studio 13 Platinum/Suite timeline playback and rendering.
