[Bug report] Work with H.265 file in DaVinci Resolve

Summary: Did you have the problem with working with H.265 files in DaVinci Resolve? If you did, please continue reading. This article is exactly talking about how to put best workflow with H.265 files in DaVinci Resolve.
    H.265 codec, also known as High Efficiency Video Coding, is very suitable for transferring and storing 4K video. Though H.265 codec is so great that more and more camcorders record Ultra HD videos in H.265 codec, there are only a few video editing applications support for dealing with H.265 files perfectly. So if you couldn’t work with H.265 files in DaVinci Resolve smoothly, it won’t be surprising. First thing we should do is checking which types of files DaVinci Resolve can handle natively.
    You can see H.265 codec isn’t in the list from the picture above. So it’s hard to say whether DaVinci Resolve is able to edit all types of H.265 files. In order to have no problem with editing H.265 files in DaVinci Resolve, we’d better transcode H.265 files to DNxHD codec which DaVinci Resolve can handle perfectly.
    Here I recommend Pavtube H.265 Video Converter for Mac(Windows version) to help you work with H.265 files in DaVinci Resolve on Mac El Capitan. This H.265 video converter is able to assist you to transcode H.265 files to DNxHD codec for DaVinci Resolve.
