[David Smith] "Are you saying that there is no way to see a 10 bit image? If a Mac won't output 10 bit than what computer system does?"
[David Smith] "I've head Macs can't handle 10 bit. I'm setting up my system right now. What I don't understand is: If a Mac Pro is not 10 bit what are people using to color grade 10 on? "
Is nothing about Macs, is about your cards and monitors.
You need and external video card 10b capable and a 10b or CRT monitor.

[Jeremy Garchow] "I will disagree with Rafael in that when rendered, the gradient is indeed 10bit. "
So what do you expect from an 8b Ramp when you render it (blur) at 32bFP and export in 1n 10bYUV?
To tell the difference between 8 and 10b just need FC's scope.
