How to import GoPro Hero6 HEVC h.265 video into FCP X/7/6?

“Hi all, I have a GoPro Hero 6 and it records in 240fps mode uses HEVC h.265 which I like since file sizes are a lot smaller. However, I had so much trouble working with the footage because Apple Final Cut Pro X refused importing Hero 6 HEVC files at all. I would love to find a simple solution. Something like an easy software update or video decoder upgrade??? Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.”
