The HDR (Highly Dynamic Range) function mainly targets semi-professionals or professionals whose devices support HDR. HDR materials shot by users or obtained from other channels can be edited, previewed, and exported in Filmora.

Key Functional Features

  • HDR displays a more comprehensive range of brightness from the darkest to the brightest.
  • It accommodates more brightness, shadow detail, and saturation for a more natural and realistic display without compromising tones in bright or dark areas.
  • You can switch to HDR export when the current device meets the GPU acceleration conditions.

Timeline Rendering: After rendering in HDR state, the player preview video clarity will be reduced.

GPU Support: Enable GPU acceleration for preview, rendering, and export. Filmora has a corresponding pop-up reminder on it.

Export Speed: The export speed of HDR video is about 4 times slower than that of SDR video.

Device Support: If your device does not support or does not turn on HDR, Filmora will prompt a pop-up window and remind you that the preview function of HDR is limited to the case that the device supports and HDR is on.
