At that time, there were no established workflows for cutting and mastering from the camera's native H.264 files. In pre-production testing, we tried creating a native workflow but the results looked abysmal. One of our Technical Assistants at Technicolor had the idea to convert the H.264 files to 10 bit uncompressed quicktimes and it made a world of difference. With the 10 bit files, I was able to pull clean keys on a DaVinci 2K Plus.
