You did not say if you are on a MAC or a Windows System...
I use Uncompressed QT for the same purpose from Windows. (Apple Component Video YUV422 - 24 bit)
There is no 10 bit option in Windows so the Post House converts it automatically through FCP as they workflow it. Doesnt cause any problems at all.
None of the other options (eg Apple Animation) include 10bit.
BTW - it is done through the Media Encoder/QT and I have a saved preset for my settings.
Sorry, I'm on a Mac. Thanks for the help, just to be clear, in the Media encoder all I need to do is set the format to Quicktime, the Video codec to Apple Component Video YUV422 - 24bit and I will get a 10 bit uncompressed quicktime file?
There is a contradiction somewhere. 24 bit translates to 8 bit per channel, not 10.
Dan - you may find that there is a 10 bit option on the MAC.
(I know there was when I had a MAC with FCP)
What I said Dan was my Psot House tok in the 24bit file and FCP converted it automaticaly ( renedered it out as 10bit to the Kona Card)
What exactly is your workflow on this project once you export the file?
Harm - can you explain what that means please? Just curious.
Craig - I see what you mean now,
My workflow is just to hand the 10 bit uncompressed file over to someone who is uploading it to the adstream server for me.
I think the best thing for me to do is just to export as the Apple Component Video YUV422 - 24bit, and convert it to 10bit in FCP.
thanks for your help
3 channels of 8 bits each amounts to 24 bits. 3 x 8 = 24
3 channels of 10 bits each amounts to 30 bits. 3 x 10 = 30
Dan. You may find that they upload to the adstream server via FCP.
You may also find that they upload the file as an MPEG once they have run it through FCP. I have only ever seen the 10 bit request from FCP users but doubt it is "obligatory".
Ask them (or do a test for them).
