    32bpc Quick Query

    aceleyace

      Hi guys,

       

      Done a little bit of googling on this, but after 20 minutes perhaps asking might speed this up.

       

      I'm working in a linear workflow at 32bpc.

      What I'm curious about.. Can I work at 8bpc then for the final render change the setting to 32bpc?

      It's a very vector based motion design project and I'm using the higher bit depth particularly for nicer colour gradients etc.

       

      Thanks guys

          That will depend on specifics like whether you use effects like Glow or layer blending modes. They work differently in 8 bit/ 16bit vs. 32bit and thus will affect appearance. If that's not an issue, then this might be a viable option, though generally then one would simply work in 16bpc all the time.

            ah yes, good point, it sounds like 16 bit is a much better idea to try and work with
