But does it make the game better? “About 10 percent of the paint colour on certain cars is not able to be presented through standard dynamic range (SDR), as the colour itself is not contained within that range,” says Yamauchi. “You only get a true representation of what the colours of the McLaren should look like, for example, if you are playing using high dynamic range (HDR).
