Ah gotcha. Thank so much for all your help with this. I want my Hobbit fanedit to be at its best shape so this really helps. Sorry for all the questions, but I do have one last one. Would an HDR passthrough capture card suffice for viewing HDR or would I have to go for one of the Blackmagic devices? I don’t really use resolve that often and primarily use Premiere Pro CC for my basic color needs.

DeckLink and UltraStudio devices are for monitoring, not for capturing. So that’s an entirely different type of device. Also, generally people use the same Blackmagic devices for their reference displays when using Premiere anyway. Or AJA also makes some that work too.

Also, Premiere actually doesn’t even support HDR PQ at this time (the HDR format used on 4K Blu-ray). They have plans to incorporate it into future versions of Premiere, but it’s currently not supported. (You can still cut an HDR ProRes video inside of Premiere, but you won’t be able to monitor it in HDR or export it in HDR). Right now, Premiere only “kind of” supports HDR HLG, which is an entirely different format. And to be frank, their support is quite limited.
