I would like some help in knowing what parameters to add to encode in hdr a source movie in 4k HDR. I added the parameters hdr = 1, but it doesn't seem to be enough. There are parameters like this: ref = 5: me = 3: subme = 7: deblock = -3, -3: rc-lookahead = 100: bframes = 16: merange = 57: scenecut = 40: sao = 0: cutree = 0: hdr = 1: G (13250.34500) B (7500.3000) R (34000.16000) WP (15635.16450) L (10000000.1)
but it doesn't seem to work. Could you help me . I read the x265 doc, but I can't find how it fits Handbrake. I would appreciate your help. thanks a lot

Upgrade to version 1.4. It will automatically passthru the HDR10 mastering metadata. And make sure to disable the filters, some are 8bit only, you can find a list on the online docs.
