    Switching from 16 bpc back to 8 bpc - is it lossless?

      Hi,

       

      often I find myself working in projects with 16 bpc and wanting to switch to 8 bpc to get better RAM Previews and overall performance speed-up. But then I always ask myself if this will destroy anything in my project - like key's, gradients, paint-work, stuff like that.

       

      Does anyone know what happens when you switch to 8 bpc in an originally 16 bpc project and then switch back to 16 bpc for rendering?

       

      Cheers!
