Prores HQ vs Kona 8 bit

Hey guys. I'm wondering if the Prores HQ codec is any better than Kona 8 bit? In SD or in HD? Do titles render better in one than the other?

Just wondering. It could be a space saving thing.

ProRes is a 10-bit codec. SO yes, it is better.

smaller flie sizes, more RT on the same machine, less storage requirements and you move about 100MB per second (thats megabytes - not megabits per second) or about 1/4 of the Uncompressed 1080 8bit bandwidth is needed for ProRes.

thanks for your input Paul,

but we have never used more than 8bit uncompressed for our SD projects (coming from Digi-Beta), since we don´t do any intense graphics or CC on our footage.

I just want to know how 8bit uncompressed & ProRes (SQ) compares in SD?

Will there be a noticeable Quality hit? I´d like to use ProRes because it is almost 4x smaller in file-size. But since this is Pro-editing for mastering for a TV network I don´t want to do anything studpid.

prores is a 10bit codec, it is engineered to be RT enabled, and designed from the ground up to be an intermediate codec.

prores is hands down better than 8bit anything.
