UHD and 10-bit
I just got a Fuji X-T3 which can produce UHD 10-bit footage that I want to import into Cin-GG. Questions:
1. Do I need to go to Cinx and openSUSE, or does Cin-GG handle it now? (I read that it does in Features and I also read that it doesn't in the manual)
2. Do I need to set the YUV colour space to BT2020? Output will be FHD so therefore BT709.
3. Should I set Format to RGB (or RGBA)-Float or will I not lose anything by working in YUV 8-bit?
2) In Settings->Preferences, Appearance tab in the Color section is "YUV color space" that has a pulldown and can be set to BT2020 (default is BT601). I actually have no idea what this does, but it must be relevant or GG would not have added it I suppose. I will try to have him explain it to me.
Also, for testing purposes we might be able to make a CinX version for your operating system what ever that is. We only created the H265 10-bit CinX for Suse because it was actually being used. There are too many to create unless there is a real need.
Hopefully, a more technical user will know for sure, but I think you do not need the CinX version which is only needed in order to produce 10-bit rendered output H.265 (as opposed to 10-bit H.264 which is automatically available in Cin). When I render a small section using Pro as the format and then look at the output in the Resources window, "Info" option, "Detail" I see:
video1 prores 1920x1080 29.97 pix yuv422p10le
10-bit pixel formats are: yuv420p10le, yuv422p10le, yuv444p10le
BTW: the manual needs lots of work and I welcome and need ALL criticism. When something is fuzzy in the manual, it usually means I haven't a clue so rather than say something wrong, it ends up being just plain confusing. It will get better over time.
