Video Copilot FMP presets

Hi
Has anyone used Andrew Kramer's(videocopilot) Film Magic Pro presets? I seem to notice 8 bit artifacts and was wondering if these preset effects are 8 bit only?

If 8bit, is there any way you can increase the quality/bit depth of an 8 bit effect?

since they are just presets, they are victim to whether the effect(s) that they are using to color grade is/are 8, 16 or 32-bit capable.

you can use the hdr compander effect to help in cases where you have higher bit depth footage and comps.

[jim bachalo] "is there any way you can increase the quality/bit depth of an 8 bit effect?"

You can make the timeline 32-bit, and it might yield better results.

Y'know, this brings up something that's been bugging me: instead of introducing new gee-whiz features in the next version of AE -- whenever it happens -- wouldn't it be nice if they'd fix the things that need fixing, like making every effect a 32-bit effect?
