IMHO, the raw processing is no hack and works well for me. I've tried quite a few and keep coming back to Qimage. As for the Apple format, after reading various articles, the jury is still out. Not much supports it yet and it may or may not become a popular standard, save for phone images in a storage sparse environment. As mentioned in a post above, history is not on its side. OTOH, maybe Mike will decide it's a desirable feature.

As far as I know it is a fully proprietary format, what is bad. But even worst, it is protected by many copyrights.
So the only persons that have a benefit from this format are the financial departements of apple and google and other big software player that try to make us dependent on there products.
So my advice: don't use this format!

It looks like I can probably get HEIC support added into the 2020 edition.  I'm currently working on QU 2020 which should be out by early October.
