PSA: Editing HLG3 Videos In LumaFusion Using The New 2018 iPad Pros
I have a Sony A7iii and lately have been using the HLG3 picture profile everytime as it’s nicer to color grade. When I imported it in the iPad, the iPad will crash back to the lockscreen when playing it and when trying to put the same video file in the trimmer section of LumaFusion.
I contacted LumaTouch about this and they said that it’s a “decoder optimization” issue with the new iPad Pros (ironically the normal iPads can play them) and they already sent this as a bug report to Apple. They did, however, gave a workaround and that is don’t put the video file to the trimmer just drag it to the timeline directly and trim it from there. Voila! It worked and I can now edit HLG3 files in LumaFusion.
So if any of you guys uses the HLG3 picture profile, now you can edit them in LumaFusion in the new iPad Pros. Hopefully Apple comes up with a fix soon.
