In this video I help you prepare for working with the Perceptual Quantizer (PQ) curve.
We will set up a custom hard clip, and take a look at the video signal in the waveform monitor.
4.1 Shadows in HDR
In this video, we’ll take a look a few techniques I use when grading in HDR. I’ll start by briefly talking about the PQ-curve, and then show you how how I grade a low-key clip with nice ‘punchy’ highlights.
4.2 Clipping in HDR
In this video, we’ll take a look at the problem with clipped highlights, and I show you different techniques to manage it in post-production.
4.3 Three additional topics
In this video, I’ll discuss a limitation related to the LG OLEDs. I will also show you how to render your HDR video. Finally, I’ll get into the topic of text and graphics levels in HDR.
4.4 Converting to SDR
In this video, I’ll show you three ways of deriving an SDR-version from your HDR grade – using the Resolve Color Management – and also the built in Dolby Vision iCMU.
