A Pro’s Guide to Using the HDR Palette

The HDR Palette on the color page is not just for HDR content.

It’s another tool in your toolbox that you can use for any number of grading tasks.

The main feature of it, as opposed to the Primary wheels, is that you have fine control over several ranges of brightness in your image. And you can also easily customize those ranges.

This may make it helpful for grading HDR deliverables, but can be used for anything where you want finer control of your image.
