M1 Mac Studio
Just returned to a client project from last fall and saw something I don't remember seeing before.
Noticed a severe banding problem in a very dark scene.
Compositing Arri Log & Rec.709 sources in 32-bit, ACES color space, export Arri Log.
Looks good on the monitor, but exported Prores file has severe posterization - like the file is an 8-bit. Tried everything I can think of but nothing helps.
Exporting as 16-bit Tiff looks fine. It has to be export encoding because Tiff-sequence that looks OK is again posterised when exported as a Prores.
I fear all my previous deliveries since the last AE update are garbage. Has anyone seen something like this?
