Premiere Pro CS6 exports Blackmagic 10-bit 444 codec at 8 bpc

Color depth is automatically set to 24 bits (8bpc) when using the Blackmagic 10-bit 4:4:4 codec to export a file from Premiere Pro CS6 (Win-7). Is it possible to render from Premiere Pro using a higher bit depth so that the output isn't clamped? After Effects allows higher depth, but it is not an ideal workflow to export complex Premiere projects from AE.

    The Render at Maximum Depth should allow the 10 bit.  I'd expect the Depth to reflect this, but maybe not.  Have you tested an export yet?

    That's one way, I guess.


    You can also open the export in KM Player, right click the screen and go to Media Info...


    It'll just tell you the bit depth.
