White Text HDR in Final Cut Pro | 20210114 | 1-memo•com

SUMMARY
Problem : Grey Text
White text eg. Titles in Final Cut Pro ,
looks grey on HDR footage ( iPhone 12 – Rec.2020 HLG ) in a FCP Wide Gamut library. Solution : HDR Tools
Apply HDR Tools to the title clips, logo (PNG) etc … Mode : PQ to HLG (Rec.2100) Peak Brightness (nits) 100 (– 200). Brightness may be fine tuned with a peak (nits) between eg. 100-200/300.

Text like eg. Titles in Final Cut Pro that normally is white in a standard library (SDR) is grey on HDR footage in a wide gamut library, and thus cannot be used in most cases.
Here I use a Wide Gamut library in Final Cut Pro (using version 10.4.10) and a Project color space : Wide Gamut HDR – Rec. 2020 HLG.
I today found a solution – workaround perhaps – using the HDR Tools filter in the app.
Just apply the filter to the title clip and set the HDR Tools Mode : PQ to HLG (Rec.2100) – Peak Brightness (nits) 100.
This also works in the Motion app that I use to make custom subtitle templates – here the HDR Tools is used on the layer ‘Type Text Here’.

Footage filmed in Dolby Vision HDR on the iPhone 12 Pro Max with Shure MV88 for sound, in the Green Heart of Holland.

This short film starts with no HDR Tools applied. Top left is the logo ① memo based on a PNG file. A FCP lower-third title is used in the first part. In the last part the summary text is shown in a custom made Motion template.
