Like I said the tone mapping looks good but the video is out of focus.
I do not have a second monitor.
Check out the pictures I attached for Markmon1. Look at the clothes and how they look in focus and then look at the faces and see how out of focus they look.
I mean do you have a laptop/tablet to look at the screenshots made? From the screenshots on my monitor I can't really tell what is wrong. Maybe my eye is not trained enough.
A test between a 4K with HDR and 4K without HDR of the same file could maybe help:
Go to Youtube, find any 4K HDR clip that you think might be a good test.
Something like this is ok?:
Youtube stores 4K (2160p) versions with and without HDR.
Note: the 4K SDR version (of the 4K HDR version) is the HDR>SDR converted to SDR. The difference is the color gamut. The colors may looks wrong (on some videos) because YT has a poor method of HDR>SDR conversion. Everything else should be the same between the two versions, although I'm not 100% sure if the conversion affects sharpness/focus. It does not on my setup.
Accessing these can be done via youtube-dl. If you're unfamiliar with youtube-dl or is too complicated there a software called SVP which is primarily an interpolation software, but it comes with a component called SVP Tube. It has a 30 day trial. There may be other software but I'm not familiar with what can do the same thing.
If you get SVP, just open the program and in the right lower side there should be a red square with a white arrow, just like in the screenshot. Open a browser window with the video you're trying to download, copy the url, and SVPtube should pop up. Select the version, and click the down arrow right of the Play button and click download.
With 4K Video Downloader both the 4K SDR and HDR can be downloaded as mkv's, but the HDR version in OSD says matrix BT.2020 and primaries BT.709. No HDR conversion is taking place.
The youtube-dl/SVP are webm files and the HDR conversion is taking place (in madvr).
If anyone has any links of the two types of 4K (HDR and SDR) files that would make the process easier, please post.
