Using GoPro footage which are in 10-bit color space (yuvj420p), and using Blender as a video editor, the output seems to always be in 8-bit color space.
How can I preserve the 10-bit color space?
- Output: AVI RAW
- Output: H.264 + Encoding Format: H.264 + [X] Lossless
- Output: H.264 + Encoding Format: AVI + Codec: H.264 + [X] Lossless
- Output: H.264 + Encoding Format: Quicktime + Codec: H.264 + [X] Lossless
- Output: H.264 + Encoding Format: AVI + Codec: HuffYUV
- Float color space in sequencer
No matter these, in the end
ffprobe always shows it's not anymore in
yuvj420p but in
yuv420p (or what should be another 8-bit color space format). This results in washed out colors visible on HDR monitors (barely noticeable on older monitors).
