Input Option 2. Override the Data Throughout - AWS Elemental Live

This is version 2.18 of the AWS Elemental Live documentation. This is the latest version. For prior versions, see the Previous Versions section of AWS Elemental Live and AWS Elemental Statmux Documentation.

Input Option 2. Override the Data Throughout

If the specified color space is HDR10, you can configure AWS Elemental Live to modify the color space data in the entire input to a color space you specify and to Mastering Display data you specify.

It is appropriate to override the data throughout if you know that the input uses the same color space throughout but that, in some portions of the video, the color space data is either missing or wrong. For example, the input is all SDR 601, but some portions are marked as SDR 709.

In the input, set up Override Throughout as follows:

  • Color Space : A value other than Follow.

  • Force Color : Checked.

  • Mastering Display Information: These fields appear only if you have set the Color space to HDR10. For help, see the tooltips for each field on the AWS Elemental Live web interface.

If you do not plan to convert the color space in the output, then set the fields appropriately. Make sure to obtain values used in the color grading process for the input; you cannot use the defaults or null values and expect to obtain valid color results. These values are included in all the color space data in the input.

If you do plan to convert the color space, the input values given above are irrelevant; leave the defaults.
