Good morning,

is it possible in Avidemux to convert video to 10bits color depth, using HEVC (x265) codec ?

I have only possibility to choose 8bit there.

I would like to upscale the original video to 10bits color depth.

I am using this version of Avidemux: avidemux_2.7.7 r201109_win64

Best regards,



You need a build generated in MXE ( with a current libx265 (not provided by MXE) which includes high bit depth versions. libx265 in the official build node has been created apparently without.

You would need to cross-compile Avidemux yourself.


Only non-Visual Studio builds support 10bit HEVC output right now, you can download it from here:
