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.
Thank you for responding. Yes, I exported test files from Premiere and After Effects, and compared the files to the source sequence using scopes and a difference matte. The After Effects CS6 32bpc export showed no differences to the source sequence at 0.0% matching tolerance. The Premiere Pro CS6 export was different from both the AE file and the source sequence at matching tolerances below 0.5%, but was the same as an uncompressed 8-bit AVI at 0.0% matching tolerance.
