Default GV HQ Codecs Question

Hi everyone,

I just noticed that a one-minute file output with HQX fine 10bit produced a smaller file size than the same file output with HQ fine 8bit. Tested with default settings. (Result 8bit = 1,1 GB and 10bit = 654 MB).

Shouldn't it be vice versa?
When I checked the metadata with MediaInfo, I was astonished that in the metadata the 10bit HQX file showed up with 8bit. See attachements.

Can anyone confirm?

Don't know how it reads the codec, but I guess it reads information over DirectShow.
In this way it is simply right, because the DirectShow codec limits to 8 bit.
The only chance to work at 10 bit outside of Edius is to work with the QuickTime codec.

Ok, but how does it come that the overall file gets smaller if Edius writes it in 10bit?
