Larry Jordan lays out an HDR workflow for Apple Final Cut Pro X.
He writes, “HDR media is fairly easy to shoot, provided we use at least a 10-bit codec and record in either RAW or Log-C formats. The challenge is in editing. Why? Because we don’t yet have a consistent standard – nor affordable monitors – that allow us to view HDR material. While OS X is capable of handling HDR material, all current computer monitors are not and FCP X does not support displaying HDR material. However, all is not lost. We can take lessons we learned in the past and apply them to this new technology.”
