I´ve been capturing some HDV (50i and 25p) footage ftom my Canon HV30 with Final Cut using Apple Intermediate HDV Codec.
Now i want to work on that footage using my PC and i´ve downloaded the blackmagic codecs and i have 3 options when i´m exporting:
1- Blackmagic 10 Bit
2- Blackmagic 8 Bit (2Vuy)
3- Blackmagic RGB 10 Bit
I guess that choosing between option 1 and option 2 will depend on the bits from the original footage, but i dont really know how to know if my original footage is in 8 or 10 bits. Anyone knows ?
In case that i have to go in 10 bits, whats the difference between option 1 and 3 ?
Hope someone can help me on thisone.
thanks in advance.
