A little while back, we reported that Blackmagic Design had added support for HEVC 4:2:2 Main10 on Apple Silicon in DaVinci Resolve. What we didn’t realize at the time was that the render page now had three selections for encoding HEVC: Main (8-bit), Main10 (10-bit 4:2:0) and Main 4:2:2 10.
Using Invisor, an app brought to our attention by reader Ethan Hegel, we were able to confirm that Resolve now does indeed offer HEVC 10-bit 4:2:2 encoding.
