Color grading in premiere pro means grading in 8-bit. No more 14-bit.

Nice tutorial Dave!

@beat_takashi interesting, I didn't know that. I need to keep testing with different workflows.

Are you sure that actually changes it to 16 bit? Wouldn't the files edited already take advantage of the 14 bit properties and when exported aren't required to be in 14 bit?

Not necessarily true. Some plugins (including fast color corrector) are 32 bit. You can tell by the small brick symbol with a 32 inside of it, next to the plugins in Premiere.

@Dugdale - An important thing to note, in AE, be sure to change your project to 32 bit. You can do so by clicking the "8 bit" icon next to the new comp button.

Hi Dave! Gotta ask. How do you manage to import dng comp from after effects to premiere pro? I,m on premiere cs5 and while dng,s are perfectly workable on after effects it is not on premiere, not at least on my version?

Dynamic Link. Not sure if that was in CS5

Hey, nice tutorial Dave. I first starting watching your videos to understand shooting with DSLR and a year later i'm a self-employed director/cinematographer full time. Thanks for being inspiring.

Good to see that you're stoked on RAW shooting.

Photoshop ACR opens the dng's in 8bit mode, next setting is 16bit or 32bit, so if u choose 16 itll take advantage of the 14bit dater n not lower it from 14 to 8bit. hope this helps.
