My first long format HDR video, things didn’t go so well… After playing the video for a couple of minutes, ASBL kicks in and pretty soon the picture is too dark to watch comfortably. I believe that lowering contrast to 80 and turning off Peak Brightness prevents ASBL from activating, but that defeats the whole point of HDR! Another option is to purchase an LG service remote, enter the service menus and turn off auto-dimming. Intercutting B-roll or shooting from a a different angle every minute or so also prevents the display from dimming and something like this is probably the way to go, as most people aren’t accessing the service menu and I’ve got to take those viewers into account.
