[Tig] Davinci Resolve Full Range vs Normal Range

I know nothing about Adstream as I'm working long-form for TV with tape delivery.  Broadcasters only accept product within the normal gamut limits.  Anything delivered outside of specification is either rejected or passed through a legaliser, which will clip off any vision falling outside  the diamond display on a 601 WFM.  This will make your work look flat and clipped.

I'm using an older version of Resolve where the video I/O and monitoring settings on the config page offer "Enable Mapping" and "Disable Mapping".  My workflow at the moment involves bouncing pre-conformed sequences in and out via tape.  A lot of the camera original material has vision peaks approaching 110%.  If I use "Enable Mapping" I clip off a lot of these highlights on the way in.  To avoid this I ingest using "Disable Mapping" but grade using "Enable Mapping".  I add a channel at the track level which uses the primaries to globally correct the colour bars at the head of the sequence.  I grab a gallery reference still of the bars at track level and steal this from project to project.  This process lets me rescue detail out of Resolve's clippers just the same as with file based conform, but still deliver a product within legal gamut.

For what it's worth,
