    Dear All,

    I have a bunch of HDR recorded video from an Iphone 12 pro and like to export it as SDR with full grade applied. I am using no HDR monitors.

    Timeline Color Space: Rec 2100 ST2084 as well on Output Color Space.

    I enabled in Davinci Dolby vision in the color tab: Target Display Output: 100-nit, BT, 709, BT.1886, Full. I press ‘Analyze” and get a beautiful automatic image interpretation. Enabled is the Tone Mapping Preview.

    If I export the clip then it flat again.

    What Output Color Space do I need to select to get a SDR image?

    I appreciate all your help. Cheers

    In my experience you should to set your Output color space to Rec.709-A for best results with iPhone footage.
