Also, there is no longer a "maximum bit depth" setting in Project settings, so maybe this is where things got broken, as in earlier versions of Premier that setting on was required for proc amp to work correctly.
I have this "maximum bit depth" setting option in CS5
Max bit depth is a sequence, no longer a project setting, so be sure you are looking in the right place. With this set of-of-range values will be preserved with supported effects as indicated by icons in the effects panel. Also note that with GPU acceleration enabled, all rendering done on the GPU will always be at maximum bit depth. The icons in the effects panel indicate the abilities of the software effect, not the GPU effect, so for example crop will render in 32-bit when on the GPU even though it never will on the CPU.
I thought the proc amp was broken in Premier CS5 but later found that the critical setting was just moved as was pointed out in the post..
The proc amp effect in CS5 still works to save super white and super black values, however, there is no longer a "maximum bit depth" setting in Project settings, it has been moved into the General tab of the new sequence dialog. As with previous versions of Premier, Proc amp won't help high dymamic range YUV video unless the "maximum bit depth" setting is enabled.
Huh..Steve gets the points...
Without opening a new thread, I just wanted to say that I can't get ProcAmp to work on my footages. And I remember it worked in the past.
I have footage from Nex-7, D4s, GoPro Hero 3 Black. At least on the GoPro & Nex-7 footage it was easy to recover highlights. But when I try it now, I just grey out the highlights without recovering anything.
Of course, Maximum Bit Depth is enabled in the sequence. I cleaned the cache, I enabled Maximum Render Quality as well, and also tried with Mercury on/off.
Any suggestions in fixing this?
Thanks a lot,
