Perhaps its already been mentioned, anyway the files open but as the title says ...
This may be of interest to some with the GH5 'open gate' hevc files been made available at the end of the month with the new firmware. If the hevc files are of similar makeup then probably they won't be enabled by VP15 either.
I can upload samples if someone gives me an ftp link. I don't use dropbox or google or anything I have to sign up for. Sorry. Let me know if there is a place to upload to and I'll put up some samples for everyone to test with.
@petecarney The devs have had a few GH5 HEVC samples over the past month or so from various sources, and JN_ came through yesterday with an Anamorphic "6K" 25p sample. They all now show the same decoding problems in VP15 build 216 described in my previous comment.
More test media couldn't do any harm. mega.nz, wetransfer.com and mediafire.com are some alternatives to Google Drive/Dropbox/OneDrive. I think some of them may allow upload without signing up.
The half-length video stream and green frames are now fixed in VP15 build 261. The footage still scales down to 4096px, as that is VP15's maximum resolution. The playback is very stuttery for me, and I think proxies would be advisable in many cases, or transcode to an easier format before bringing the footage into Vegas. @petecarney
