Default editing 12 bits video or higher

Since many new cameras feature 12bits recording (such as the C300 Mark II, HD 4:4:4 12 bits) or even 16 bits, such as the Red Epic, what's gonna happen when we edit such footage with Edius 8? Is the codec able to support this color space or we just lose the additional data on the way?
Excuse my ignorance, but I'm used to edit with Edius and would like to stick to it.

Sorry, do you mean exporting the footage from the Edius timeline to HQX? Did you find that in this way you can retain more of the 12bit color space for grading? Thanks a lot for you reply.

Thanks a lot. Only one more naive question, how would you convert the footage to Pro-Res444? I guess not within Edius if you care preserving the 12bits. Thanks again.

Default Thanks

Thanks to everyone for your useful replies. A last question: I'm now using Edius 7.5, would upgrading to Edius 8 bring me any advantage in this respect (Canon 12 bit 4:4:4 editing)?

Thanks More4k , I totally didn't know edius imports my 12bit dng files poorly. Going to install resolve lite and do a couple tests to see if I can see a difference with that workflow. It would be nice to have more information in the highlights

Default Grading with Da Vinci Resolve

A tip I got from another forum. If you are going to grade your files in Resolve, don't forget to go to each of your clip's Properties and change the default "Auto" into "Data". Only then you'll see the full tonal range of your footage.

Andrea, true. But you need to go to Master Project Settings and mark the date level (full in 12.5), only then you might see true color scale. Same in the export settings you need to mark data (full). You don't need to mark each clips.
