"Please go and check the Sequence>>Settings "

10 bit uncompressed

"You will not see a correctly displayed 10bit image on your computer monitor. Period"

It is not a 10 bit monitor, that's not the point. There is no banding whatsoever in the the viewer. There is in the timeline/canvas. When I export the 10 bit uncompressed sequence and put that new clip in the viewer there is banding. I can not export a clip that looks as good as the one in the viewer.

I do have a Quatro 4000/Decklink > SDI > HDlink > 10 bit monitor. It looks the same on that one.

I've heard that FCP does this. I've just never seen it myself. If anyone can tell me how to do it so I can make a clip that looks like the one in the viewer let me know.

Or, try it yourself. I'd be curious to see what other people get.
