Hi, I found some posts on this issue but no clear answers. I want to use Media Encoder to compress my Cinema RAW lite footage from 4k Raw 12-bit to 10-bit. But when I choose ProRes, which I understand is a 10-bit codec, the options I am given are 8bpc and 16bpc. And "Render at maximum depth". I don't want to add unnecessary file size by choosing 16bpc or "Render at maximum depth". Thank you!

I'm a post supervisor at a production company that edits primarily in adobe cc. I'm not aware of any way to do prores lt/regular/hq at 10 or 12 bit... I have also been hoping adobe would address this. We generally use EditReady to transcode 10-bit xavc mxf files from the Sony Fs7 and Fx6 to prores 422 for intermediates because of this. I've never been able to get a straight answer on if setting to "maximum" or to 16 will add unecessarily weight to file size, or if media encoder senses that the max is 10 and renders out as such. I am interested an an answer to this as well.
Did you ever resolve this?
