Watchout and 4K HDR

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

There is an old topic asking for HDR playback in WO. Just wanted to know if someone tried it or have any information could help to understand if it's possible or not.

 

Thank you

watchout can only play 8 bits and no more ,unfortunately...

while demands for playing 10 or 12 bits files is now increasing exponential.

i asked a long time ago but i've been answered it will means to rewrite watchout entirely.

if need to play this kind of file i use hardware player (ex: kipro 4k) or if more than 4k

other capable 10-12  bits playing software.

Essentially correct. It would be more correct to say ...

        watchout can only output 8 bits and no more ,unfortunately...

i.e. In some cases it can play movies with higher bit depths, but those will be reduced to 8 bit for output.
