How to enable “HDR compatible mode” to watch videos in Nero MediaHome?

Everyone is talking about 4K or 8K, but HDR is actually a greater improvement in visual quality. HDR means more detailed images, better color, and highlights that really pop.

Nero Platinum supports now the playback of HDR videos in Nero MediaHome. Nero’s HDR technology allows you to enjoy near-HDR image quality even on non-HDR displays!

Learn here how to ensure that your HDR videos and movie can be played.

What You’ll Need

Every link in the chain – from your Windows system to the graphic card, to the source video file – has to be HDR-capable. That means you need:

  • Windows 10 64bit system, with Nero Platinum or Nero Platinum 2021 installed

Nero Platinum supports HDR playback for 23.x and higher versions. You can get the latest version from:

  • A HDR-capable Graphic card or chip

That means Nvidia GTX 1060 or better, AMD RX470 or better, or Intel HD 620 or later.  Note that these are the bare minimums, and higher-end cards will be able to have better performance.

  • HDR-capable source video file

Not all videos can be played with HDR effect – you can hardly ask a SD quality video to achieve high-definition HDR playback. Basically, HDR playback is only possible for H.265 10bit AVC video or movie files.

If your video file and your system support HDR playback, you will see the ‘HDR’ icon on the Nero MediaHome tool bar:

QuickViewer HDR_ON

HDR_ON

Clicking ‘HDR’ icon will turn on/off the HDR playback.

HDR_OFF

Enjoy a better performance with HDR hardware playback

With a Nvidia GTX 1060 or better, AMD RX470 or better, or Intel HD 620 or later.  Please activate the ‘Enable hardware acceleration’ option in ‘Nero MediaHome > Options > Video’. The hardware acceleration will be applied after you re-start the playback.

How can Nero Video export or package media files which are used in the project?

Available Products: Nero Platinum Suite, Nero Platinum Suite 2021, Nero Video 2021

 

While using Nero Video to create your own movie, Nero Video can import your own media files like Video, Music or Pictures from different folders or different devices like TV or Camera. At the same time, all media files can be managed in the “My Media” palette.

Sometimes, if you want to consolidate your media files in your disks, or edit the Nero Video project in another PC, you have to

  1. Manually check and copy all used files in the Nero Video project to a specific folder.
  2. Copy or save the Nero Video project to the specific folder again.
  3. It is possible that you have to fix the Nero Video project file issue first before opening the project again. If certain files cannot be set correctly, these files and related applied effects will be removed.

Nero Video 2021 now supports exporting or packaging the project file and used media assets.

Once you have finished video editing and click “Save”, you can “Save project file and assets” by clicking the button “Save As …”.

Popup dialog

Then the Windows folder selection dialog pops up, and you can select the folder which you want to export or package the whole folder. You can even select a removable device or network drive.

Folder

 

Depending on the number of the files you need to export and package, the whole export process will take some time. After the process is finished, you can open the folder to check the exported project and files.

Finish Export Folder

Other info: Nero Video will create a folder with the project name and the date info.
