Millions vs Trillions of Colors - ProRes4444 Export
on Nov 9, 2017 at 10:40:00 pm

Hello,

I'm finishing a project and want to make sure I'm not throwing away bit depth in my exports from After Effects.

I'm working with Alexa LOG C footage 12 bit, in a project with color management turned off and in 32 BPC. I've been exporting to ProRes4444 with the color set accidentally to "millions of colors". However, if I bring that export back into After Effects, its interpreted as "trillions of colors".

Am I throwing away colors by selecting "millions of colors"? Or does ProRes444 default to "trillions". I'm wondering if the distinction matters with this codec, source material, and working space.

I tried using this grey card https://studiohanneman.com/blog/2017/08/08/bit-depth-test-chart/ in my workflow, and it seems like I'm not throwing away color. But I'm not really sure.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
