    Still happening in 17.5.0

    This is NOT the case:
    "- Rendering with "Millions of Colors (8bit)" Data Rate and file size is higher then with "Trillions of Colors (16bit)"! Should be the opposite!!!"

    What's happening is the Millions setting applies 8-bit dithering, which in turn makes the compression less efficient, and so the file size is larger.

    Actually, the Trillions exports work. They look good in other applications. It's just AE that reads them in as 8-bit.

    Nils.

    All imported Prores 4444 files are interpreted as 8-bit (Millions).

    A gradient ramp, exported as Prores 4444, rendered at Trillions, will read correctly in Premiere, Flame, Nuke etc. But the same file in After Effects is shown as "Millions of Colors" and shows banding.

    ProreHQ files do not have this issue.

    After Effects 17.1.4 (build 37)
    macOS Mojave 10.14.6
    iMac 2017 i7
