How to Use the Ninja Inferno for Grading HDR Video in Final Cut Pro

Once you’ve set up your project in Final Cut Pro and installed Blackmagic Desktop Video on your computer, you’re just about ready to grade HDR video using the Ninja Inferno as an external monitor. You’ll probably want to edit your project in 1080p and export in 4K.

Note: This section is a work in progress! I’m getting flickering on the monitor. I’ll contact Blackmagic Design and Atomos first thing in the morning and get this sorted out.

1. In Final Cut Pro Preferences, click on Playback and the UltraStudio should appear in A/V Output.
2. Click on Window > A/V Output.
3. Open Blackmagic Desktop Video and click on central button.
4. Select the resolution and frame rate of your project, then hit ‘save’.
