sunyata Posted September 13, 2015 Share Posted September 13, 2015 Well since most people can only perceive about 1 million colors and only one person has been discovered that had the wetware to perceive more, it might not matter. If you have 8-bit systems, you can install all the log that you want, but you will always have 8-bit, 10-bit point was needed, you can always correct it shortly with 8-bit color.8 bit = 16,777,216 possible colors10 bit = over a billion possible colorsJust to address both of these comments, even though they are disagreeing, the total number of colors per pixel is kind of a useless metric. Nobody will ever ask you "Hey, can you save that file out 1,073,741,824 colors please?", they'll just ask for 10bit, 12bit etc. This is because the total number of possible colors per pixel is not only impossible to remember, is not really what determines noticeable quality issues; that's contrast. You get 256 or less for 8bit, 1024 for 10bit etc. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
