How to allow working with 110% white in DaVinci?

I'm grading some material shot in XDCAM format in Final Cut Pro 7. This is for the web so I would like to allow whites to be 110% like in Final Cut. However, when rendering out my files from Davinci I can see the highlighs is cutted at 100%. How do I setup Davinci to be working with 110% for the whites?

I don't think you'll see your superwhites unless you change your system config for "full scale" display, rather than legal video. Of course, this will open you up to another set of problems.

You mean "Old Ben"? Ben Kenobi?

Been trying setting my project config to Full Scale (under Deck Caputure and Video monitoring - cannot find any Full Scale settings elsewhere?) and changed my render settings from Auto to Full Scale, but the highest white value is still 100%. Is there somewhere else I have to change it as well?

110% doesn't exist in full scale!

Full scale means bit-levels from 0-1023 (255 in 8bit) and 1023 (255) is 100%.
If you want to see anything above 100% from a scaled video then you could use a input-lut that transcode source full to leagal. If you switch your monitoring to full scale, resolve will show it on output via decklink.

But I don't recommend that!

Resolve expand any video (assuming it's legal scaled) to full scale. So anything above 100% can't displayed on the intern scopes (because it's 10bit). But the real workspace exeeds 10 bit and nothing is cliped.
