The Tone Mapping option in Premiere Pro and Adobe Media Encoder (AME) is now available as an effect in the Export Panel. This new feature improves upon the previous SDR Conform effect found in the export effects. The Export Tone Map Effect allows users to tone map a timeline or clip to the designated export color space. It provides three tone mapping methods and additional controls for exposure and highlight saturation to fine-tune the tone mapped output. Tone Mapping Methods:


  1. iPhone HDR: Ideal for exporting an iPhone HDR timeline or clip to an SDR export color space.
  2. Log Video: Recommended for exporting a log clip in a supported format (S log, V log, and Canon log) to an SDR export color space.
  3. Other HDR: Suitable for exporting non-iPhone, non-log HDR timelines or clips to an SDR color space. This option can also be used for exporting a PQ timeline or clip to an HLG export color space.

These tone mapping methods ensure the best results when converting content between different color spaces. The default tone map method selected for the first time will always be None indicating no tone mapping.


Use the Export Tone Map Effect when exporting a timeline or clip from a larger color space (HDR) to a smaller color space (SDR). This will help maintain the intended look and feel of the content while adapting it to the target display environment.
