I have a clip that's edited on Avid MC 6, graded in Apple Color and sent from there to FCP (using classc Send To -> Final Cut Pro method ).
In FCP I started to check sequence settings for the particular sequence created by Color and some questions born in my mind.
First of all - colour grading in Color was done in 12-bit internal depth and rendered to ProRes 4444 (which is a 10-bit codec). So the sequence in FCP is also a ProRes 4444 sequence. One thing that I noticed is that in Video Processing tab the 8-bit YUV method is chosen by default. Does it somehow affects the further workflow if I want to have my finished clip with 10-bit depth? If I choose any other of those settings, the green line appears on the sequence timeline.
And the second thing is, when I checked the ProRes 4444 settings in Sequence Settings, the default color mode was Millions of colors. There is also ability to switch to Millions of colors+. AFAIK Millions of colors is usually 8-bit and the ''+" is usually used when alpha channel is present. Does FCP has different meanings for those settings?
