Re: YUV and RGB and why? by Rick Lang on Jul 13, 2012 at 5:16:28 am
"Resolve always works in RGB space."
The Blackmagic Cinema Camera will save in ProRes and DNxHD in the YUV space. Of course it is designed to be ingested or edited in both DaVinci Resolve and FCP X. Ninjas thought Apple used RGB but a posting on BMCuser.combrecently said that apple switched from using RGB to YUV in their displays as of 2011. Is there a problem with these changes in colour space or is it transparent going from YUV from the BlackMagic Cinema Camera to RGB in DaVinci Resolve and then to YUV presumably in FCP X and back for grading in Resolve in RGB? I was surprised to read Apple has switched from RGB to YUV in 2011.
