Input Option 3. Override the Data Where Necessary - 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 3. Override the Data Where Necessary

You can configure AWS Elemental Live to modify the color space data for portions of the input to retain existing color space data. But for portions that do not include color space data, the input is tagged for the color space you specify.

This handling is appropriate if you know that the input has some missing color space data, but where it does have color space data, that data is correct.

In the input, set up as follows:

  • Color Space : A value other than "Follow."

  • Force Color : Unchecked.

  • Mastering Display Information: These fields appear only if Color Space is set 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 whenever the color space data is being modified.

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