Hi there,

I recently shot some footage on Sony FS7. The camera records 10-bit, and we shot in 4K. Now I need to transcode all the footage to ProRes 4444 on AME and I'm going to leave the size 4K. The transcoded footage will also be used on After Effects and DaVinci after the edit. My only issue is that I'm a bit confused about choosing the right bit-depth. I understand that 24 bit equals 8bpc x 3 RGB Channels and 48 bit equals 16bpc x 3 RGC channels. Would 24, 32, or 48 bit be ideal for VFX and color grading work? Thank you for your feedback. - Eren
