Most computers struggle with even 10-bit h265. ProRes is much less compressed and therefore can be easily supported up to 12-bit. ProRes 4444 XQ which is the highest quality and indeed available on ARRIs has huge data rates (1700mbps). REDs strangle hold on RAW is for compressed RAW. I'm not sure how BRAW or Canon Raw Light get around this (I guess it's a ratio threshold). I so wish that companies would put Prores 444 into their cameras as a 12-bit standard that is well supported... well, that they'd put Prores in their cameras at all, then 444 after that 🙂 Mind you, I have tried to break the 10-bit files from my GH5 and they've held up, so maybe there isn't much need for it? Not entirely sure on that one. PannySVHS 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
