I got some 10-bit footage from a Ki Pro (ProRes HQ) and decided to try out a workflow including some CC. I used AMA at first, dropped that into the timeline and tried switching the quality to 10-bit without success. There’s the regular yellow, the green-yellow 50/50 and full green. But no full green with the number 10 in it. So I tried to import instead to different formats: DNxHD 185x, 1:1, 1:1 10-bit without success. Same thing with consolidate/transcode.
Weird… Cause I’ve seen the green 10-bit icon a couple of times on software only…
Does MC preserve the 10-bit when importing and exporting without it? Let’s say: AMA Prores in, Prores out? Or fast import DNxHD 185X and the same out? (I usually AMA and consolidate. Too much fiddling around with setting to get a fast import with all the different formats)
yes, it’s legit. my boss wasn’t happy when I said we’re going with avid when he saw the price tag xD try to explain to a music producer who wants to get into the film and television business that final cut x is not okay 😛
I guess I have to find out about 10-bit more. It would be really bad if it imported 10-bit as 8-bit and then exported an upsampled image. In the media creation settings I’m able to specify effects processing to 8 or 16-bit. Or same as source.
I know about MC6, we’re just not updating yet. Too many bugs and I’m not a fan of Lion. But I look forward to 64-bit and being able to use our Decklink from Black Magic.
I’m pretty sure this is the case. I’ve never seen the Full Quality 10-Bit mode available without at least a Mojo SDI. If you’re working file based, it shouldn’t matter (Except when you do full screen monitoring). If you were running out to a BOB and off to tape, then it would be important.
