Hi,

For my typical workflow, I edit and do VFX using hitfilm. But perform all the colour grading, sound mixing e.t.c in after effects. I have always committed the error of exporting h264 and importing again, thus losing a lot of quality. What is the best uncompressed, lossless format and configuration for exporting in hitfilm? (File size and/or file performance is not an issue)

Thanks.

    Hey there,

    To get the best lossless quality on export, we'd probably suggest ProRes on Mac or GoPro Cineform on Windows.

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks! I will then choose Cineform...

    What about the delivery format? What format (configuration...)  would you recommend me for exporting using  h264 codec?

    Thanks.
