cineform workflow question

just got some advice from jake the other day and a quick question but being its sunday figured id ask here. i take a file straight from my canon mark iii which is 8bit all-i files into latest version gopro studio premium. under import and convert, change advanced settings to film scan 1, file format avi. then convert it...that gives me a 10 bit file? i know its not the same as shooting true 10 bit but is that resulting file now 10 bit or i need to do something else to it? TIA

Re: cineform workflow question

All CineForm files are 10-bit (YUV) or 12-bit (RAW or RGB). If your source was only 8-bit, you don't gain anything in color precision (although you lose less, this is one way CineForm preserve input data), but now any downstream renders with color correction will be better (if using a >8-bit color pipe.)
