Hi everyone, I'm totally aware of the many discussions on this topic, but they all seem to stray from the original problem into a debate about why do it rather than how to fix it.
There IS an issue with HDR Tone Mapping, but it's pretty minor. Bright scenes look amazing and better than their non-HDR counterpart. Dark scenes are too dark. Some of the data is getting lost and I believe it's due to the HDR Tone Mapping Algorithm.
There are 6x algorithms for converting the HDR color map to an SDR color map (that I'm aware of):
It's possible that depending on the SDR screen or content, it may be necessary to switch. I'm honestly not sure, but I can definitely say that all HDR movies and shows that I watch have the problem I described above on 2x SDR screens that I've tested. To be clear, the content looks perfect on my HDR screen.
James, would you be open to implementing an option that allows the user to choose which method is used?
I think this will end the frustration that I'm sure at least a small population of Infuse users are having and it will end the need for people to continue to debate the why.
