The documentation in FCP 7's manual on 10 bit RGB processing is vague and non-specific from what I can tell. Everything you've said looks to be true, but I'm still looking for verification on a couple of things.

- If an FCP Timeline set up for ProRes 444 is set to "Always Render RGB," will I still be outputting 10 bit RGB color through my Kona card onto SR?

- Will simple dissolves render to 10 bit RGB in the timeline, or will they only be 8 bit?

Somewhat unrelated question...

- I am rendering Red footage from Color to ProRes 4444 for a Davinci 2K color correction off of SR tape. If my FCP timeline is relinked to the Red _H Proxies and sent to Color, will Color be accessing the same color space (12 bit RGB) as it would if I had used the "Native" workflow from the Red FCP whitepaper?

Thanks for your advice.
