Workflow for 10 bit footage

Dear shotcutters, dear devs -

is it correct that if I want to edit 10 bit 4:2:2 footage, the way to do it is to activate and use (only) GPU effects to keep the 10 bit pipeline intact? Export should be 8 bit rec709.

I’m happy about thoughts and suggestions. Thank you.

I’m on debian & 23.11.29

If you want to export 8-bit then you need not limit yourself to GPU Effects. Otherwise, there is a category of export presets named “ten_bit”. More info is on the v23.05 News page.

Thank You! My read is, that it makes sense to put all the 10 bit processing before a non-gpu filter so that the downsampling to 8 bit in the chain doesn’t compromise quality?
