ProHDR Tutorial for Final Cut Pro X
Learn how to control professional high dynamic range effects with the ProHDR Lesson from Pixel Film Studios.
Step 1 - Preparing the Timeline
Let’s begin by selecting a clip or image from the FCPX Media library and dragging it to the timeline. Then locate ProHDR in the FCPX effects library. For this example we will be using the ProHDR Action 1 effect. Drag and drop the effect directly on top of your media. Once your Timeline is set up go to the Inspector Window.
Step 2 - Adjusting Under Exposed Sliders
Next, We will adjust the Under-Exposed sliders. The first slider relates to stops which will make your media darker or lighter. Underneath is the Under-Exposed Knee Low and Knee High. The knee low slider sets the low end of the white and middle gray values in the image, While the knee high slider sets the high end of the white and middle gray values displayed in the image. Then you can adjust the saturation of your previous adjustments using the under-exposed saturation slider.
Step 3 - Adjusting Over Exposed Sliders
Now, Let’s move down to the over-exposed section. First is the Over-Exposed stops. Move the slider left or right to make the necessary adjustments. Below are the knee low and knee high sliders which act the same as before in the previous section. You can then control the hue and saturation.
Next is the pop-up section where you can adjust the detail opacity, edge detail, detail amount, blend softness, amount and shadow level. Now for some Final Touches. The tint controls allow you to decide the amount of tint you want to show up in media. You can also choose the tint color of your highlights, midtones and shadows.
