Thanks again for the input. I agree that there are restrictions with XDCAM, and I do not have this problem with other formats such as HDCAM because I typically convert them to ProRes before editing. Projects shot on the EX1/EX3 typically have a more limited budget and I need to get right to editing as quickly as possible.

To the point...Note that the problem is occurring ONLY in gradients that I ADD in Final Cut (fades in and out of black, primarily).

When I render them on an XDCAM timeline (ProRes as my Sequence Render Setting), there is banding. But when I take everything to an actual 10bit ProRes Sequence the fades look great.

Not worth spending any more time on, really. My original question was simply whether anyone could foresee problems stemming from this workflow.
