I have highlights that are clipping and people online were saying that sony cameras record values above the white point and you have to change it to recover that information. I can't find anywhere how to change the white point without using the exposure value. Does anyone know how to set it?
Lumetri, Basic Tab. Whites slider. That's a pure "Gain" control, only sets the white point, scaling everything else in a straight line relative to that point. And after setting the White point, you may need to readjust other things to taste. Everything affects everything.
They gave the number 235 is there anyway to input that?
No. And that's wrong info for PrPro anyway. PrPro works all video as data-levels, 0-255. Just bring the Whites down so the Parade or Waveform scopes show your whites maxing values below 100 on the left-side 0-100 scale. Under 255 on right side.
Set scopes to float and un-clamped.
