HDR Video conversion

Post by lwhittaker »

Hi all
Has anyone tried to convert a HDR video using Handbrake at all?

I've got a 19min 75gb HDR video I want to convert and worried I'll lose the HRD if I use the normal settings.

Any help would be great.

HB doesn't support HDR, so your encode will be SDR.

You can manually specify some HDR metadata if you'd like (have to look in the source for what's correct), but not all HDR formats (Dolby Vision, etc).
