Thanks guys. I saw the reference to Magnificent 7 at some point, but as stated, there may be better examples nowadays.
I will just incorporate these comments into the recommended material section.
I have the time stamp for the Magnificent 7 scene at 16:00. This was one of two examples provided to set the MaxLight (Display Max Light) to reflect the display maximum light output capability in the CMS setup: MENU → Output → CMSs → [CMS] → HDR Mapping
The two program examples mentioned in the Radiance Pro manual on page 18, for adjusting Intensity Mapping Controls are The Magnificent 7 and Mad Max Fury Road. It also notes about making the initial setup on this same page, so I always assumed these were the two sources to use, at the time the manual was written.
Based on this information, here is what I have in my guide in the HDR IM CMS Setup section:
4) Make the adjustment while viewing (paused) HDR source material. Choose a scene with both dark and bright areas or a scene with a very bright object; see the HDR Content Examples section for further details on the scene examples below.
a. Example 1: The Magnificent 7™ (2016) at 16:00 has both dark and bright areas.
b. Example 2: Mad Max Fury Road (2015) at 38:13 has a very bright object (a muzzle flash).
The Radiance Pro training presentation Jim posted specifically mentioned Mad Max and The Martian scenes for two examples to use in adjusting HDR IM parameters (no mention of setting MaxLight). Basically, I am looking for what (if any) specific program material scenes would be best for the initial setting of MaxLight in the CMS Setup.
Any input/comments appreciated.
