The HDR Transfer Matrix / Transfer Coefficients Problem
June 4, 2021
This is a technical video intended for troubleshooting color issues that could appear in your HDR work.
There's a specific problem that shows up with HDR that doesn't appear as badly in SDR, that has to do with how we move image information from camera or process RGB into YCbCr for video signals and files for transmission and delivery, and then how we regenerate RGB at our displays.
Fortunately, there's a fix, but to understand why it works and how to use it, I'll walk you through the color science of the Transfer Matrix and Transfer Coefficients.
