New release: HDRmaster 8K with HDR inspector and dynamic metadata

Munich, December 4, 2018 – FF Pictures launches HDRmaster 8K, a new standalone software toolset for Microsoft Windows 8 and 10 with several innovative features for performing quality analysis and essential metadata tasks in HDR productions with up to 8K (7680×4320 pixels) resolution. HDRmaster 8K is the successor of HDRmaster v2 which is already in use by Ultra-HD Blu-ray facilities, post-production houses, studios and manufacturers worldwide. Why this HDR Tool Set is needed To deliver the highest possible quality to the HDR consumer device, proper management of metadata and signal levels is essential. Mismanagement not only leads to compromised images but also decreases encoding efficiency, causing wasted bandwidth and unnecessary compression artifacts. “It is quite easy for mastered and distributed HDR content to have improper or missing metadata,” noted Florian Friedrich, CEO of FF Pictures and key architect of HDRmaster 8K.  “There are only a few tools out there that […]

HDR Limiter Plugin for Davinci Resolve, Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premiere

When it comes to HDR for consumer electronics, video editors as well as colorists want to make sure that there’s no unnecessary information in the signal. The HDR limiter plugin checks (Q/C) for color coordinates outside the specified gamut as well as luminance levels above or below the limitations of the mastering environment. Once these limitations are exceeded, HDR limiter will either colorize these areas (so that you see where your signal clips) or simply restrict the values to the given limitations. For example: If you master your video to 1000 nits peak white and P3 gamut, why would you accept any signals outside these limits? Such signals might cause the viewer to see something you did not see while creating the content and they would add additional payload/stress to the encoder.

Plugins für Davinci Resolve, Adobe Premiere und Adobe After Effects

Folgende Plugins von FF Pictures wurden bislang entwickelt und sind verfügbar: HDR Heatmap Die Falschfarben-Anzeige (False Color) gängiger Vorschaumonitore und Kameras ist ein gerne genutztes Feature, um die Belichtung zu kontrollieren. Das HDR Heatmap-Plugin für Resolve ermöglicht es, solche Falschfarben-Bilder mit Bezug auf die absoluten Helligkeitswerte an einem idealen Display zu erzeugen. So lassen sich beispielsweise bei HDR alle Highlights mit mehr als 1000 nit in rot markieren und alle Helligkeitsbereiche ab 800 nit in gelb. Auch für SDR (mit einstellbarem Gamma und einstellbarer Spitzenhelligkeit) oder prozentuale Signalpegel lässt sich das Plugin konfigurieren. Dank mitgelieferter Presets gelingt der Einstieg in das Plugin schnell, zusätzlich kann der Anwender auch eigene Voreinstellungen anlegen und beim nächsten Start der Software bequem über ein Pulldown-Menü aufrufen. Bis zu fünf Farben und Helligkeitswerte können eingestellt werden. Eine bei Bedarf zusätzlich ins Bild gerenderte Legende hilft bei der Interpretation. Wer will, kann die Heatmap auch nur […]
