HLG, HDR, Sony A6400 and FCP X

Hi,

I'm new to video with my Sony A6400 and there is few things I don't understand.

For example from what I understand, if I film in HLG picture profile, I will get a HDR video.

Now I have heard that you need to edit and export video separately for HDR, so if I import the HLG picture to timeline in FCP X and export it, do I get a HDR video or not?

Also when importing HDR footage to timeline I get an error saying that I'm importing HDR to SDR timeline, so what I need to do is this:

So in the end, do I get SDR or HDR picture?

Does changing settings like in this video above have any negative side effects, or is it ok to do?
