    Shot in 8-bit but import in 10-bit?

    Hi! I shot a doc with a Canon 5D Mark iv, and have been importing at DNxHD 175x. Is this a waste? Does it give me any benefits over importing 8-bit? Feels like it's taking up more space on my hard drive....

     

    Also, if I now import the rest at 175 vs 175x will this become a problem editing in my sequences?

    175x takes the samespace as 175.

    its the same bitrate.

    your not gaining anything at ingest. In fact your 8 bit is slightly more compressed to handle the empty extra 2 bits.

    I'd ingest at 175 but render up as 175x to gain a bit more from any grading.
