Vesku Posted December 8, 2014 Share Posted December 8, 2014 I am using GH4 video 0-255 luminance levels. It is quite confusing because some players shows only normal 16-235 levels and some editors does not use 0-255 properly. Some say 16-235 is better for codec (less information to process- more bitrate to details) etc etc. Graphic cards has full range/limited range (16-235) settings... If I watch my GH4 0-255 videos with Potplayer I must set in levels settings: input 0-255, output 16-235 to see all details in highs and lows. Why must I use output 16-235 while my monitor is still 0-255 RGB monitor? The logical way should be input 0-255 and output 0-255. Is the video signal always finally 16-235? Is there any benefits of using 0-255 in camera? How a player or editor changes YUV signal to RGB? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
