Hi there,

With the great upsurge in HDR shooting, how realistic would it for me to grade on my Flanders LM-2450W?
Are there huge downsides to not having a very expensive HDR monitor?

Thanks for any help.
Dan

What the shooters shoot is not as important typically as what the final product is. What are your deliverables?

Thanks for getting back to me.

Normally I deliver ProRes HQ files straight out of resolve to the client.

But, are you delivering HDR or just HD? If you're still delivering HD
then hold off worrying about HDR for a while until prices drop and availability increases.

HD delivery at the moment. But if I was asked to deliver HDR can I monitor to an extent using the monitor I have?

Thanks again.

[Dan Davis] "HD delivery at the moment. But if I was asked to deliver HDR can I monitor to an extent using the monitor I have?"
My opinion is no. You have to actually calibrate the monitor for SMPTE 2084 and/or 2020 for HDR/extended color gamut. It won't work with a display designed for Rec709.

I personally wouldn't worry about it until such time that HDR becomes a big delivery requirement. In theory, you will be able to hook up an HDR display then change the output gamut/gamma of Resolve, then do a trim pass to compensate. The chapter on HDR & Dolby Vision in the 12.5 manual (pp. 177-190) go into a lot of detail on the issues involved. I'm not convinced a $995 Costco "HDR" display is going to work for color grading.

Did anyone else see the consumer 4k HDR LG G6 OLED (about $6000 for the 55") display at the Flanders booth with their new BoxIO LUT box?

Alexis Van Hurkman has a very good (and long) article on grading for HDR and some of the complexities involved:
