I'm importing Samsung Galaxy Note 10 plus recorded videos with following codec information to the premiere pro CC v13 (windows) and the imported video looks over-exposed with incorrect gamma.

Codec: MPEG-H Part2/HEVC (H.265) (hvc1), Video resolution: 1920x1080, Buffer dimensions: 1920x1088, Frame rate: 29.993225, Color primaries: ITU-R BT.2020, Color transfer function: SMPTE ST2084, Color space: ITU-R BT.2020 Range, Max. luminance: 1000.0000 cd/m², Min. luminance: 0.0050 cd/m², Primary R: x=0.1500 y=0.0600, Primary G: x=0.6800 y=0.3200, Primary B: x=0.2650 y=0.6900, White point: x=0.3127 y=0.3290

Video looks normally when playing on VLC media player or on the phone. I have installed kLite Mega codec pack 14.4.5 on my computer. Video become somewhat normal when exposure is reduced in between (-2)-(-3).

If you have any clue on this or a solution appreciates a lot. Thank you.

This happened due to the display's inability to handle HDR videos. Color space: ITU-R BT.2020 defines a HDR video. As a solution I used 'confirm SDR' effect in premiere pro which converts the video into HDR color range.


I suffered from the exact same problem. What you can do (what is a tedious process) is to convert all your hdr files to sdr files as shown in this video with vlc:
