Seems like it should. I have a cilent that wants HDR footage and it's taking 8 hours per 20 min video to export. That seems annoyingly long. The Second I choose "High Dynamic Range" premeire defaults to "Software Encoding" and gives me an errors message if i try to switch back to Hardware encoding. Any thoughts?

This chart is a compilation starting with Francis Crossman (co-program manager, was a color engineer) that I updated with some changes a few months back. They've some more options now I think, I need to check. Might only be more in the public beta.

 

These are the HDR options I know you can use for export.

Which format/codec are you exporting to?

 

HDR is very 'new'. I am a contributing author at MixingLight, a pro colorist's teaching website. Founder Robbie Carman was the first small shop fully DolbyVision certified on the East Coast ... so I've been around HDR discussions with colorists daily for a couple years.

 

Most colorists still have not delivered any HDR media yet. They're working it, learning to do it. But the gear is prohibitively expensive for full pro b-cast standards. No acceptable Grade 1 Reference monitors are below about $20,000, so for many of the colorists who have done HDR, they've rented a monitor for the week or two of the project. This is of course folks used to spending $4500-10,000 for an SDR monitor.

 

Premiere is adding in some HDR capabilities, but ... it's still pretty new. And though the sequences can be set for the wider dynamic range/color space, as can the scopes, the only way to SEE HDR media in Premiere is via the BlackMagic or AJA devices listed in their information on HDR in Premiere ... feeding a fully HDR capable monitor.

 

Yea, it seems that HDR needs software encoding at this point at least for most format/codec combinations.
