Saving as 16bit TIFF

Post by TheDocAUS » 30.05.2019 00:54

Is there way to save a stack as a16 bit TIFF? I prefer to do post in 16 bit and then convert to 8 bit. I cannot find a setting. My other stacking program can save in 16 bit.

Not sure what your source images are, but in In RAW-to-DNG mode, the stack can be saved as a TIFF which will have 16 bits/channel.

Frames from a 6K video, so I cannot use the RAW in DNG out function.

If the source has more than 8 bits per channel, the resulting TIFF will be 16-bit. If the source is 8 bit or less, the result is 8-bit. Video frames have no more than 8-bits (more is not impossible, but you will be hard-pressed to find such a video file right now).
