I created a project with rec2020 HLG and imported my iPhone footage. I also want to include my footage from my drone but it's not in HDR. When I import it, it looks extremely dull. How can I use SDR clips in my HDR project / timeline in Final Cut Pro?

1 Answer 1


I figured it out.

  1. Goto effects panel and add HDR Tools Effect.
  2. Change mode to PQ to HLG, then lower nits to 100. That fixes it.
