Image Bit Depth

Computers store information in discrete quantities called bits. Bit depth indicates the number of bits used to describe a single pixel. A higher bit depth produces more colors in an image and, consequently, higher picture quality. The RGB color format assigns 8 bits for each color channel—red, green, and blue—for 24-bit color. A 24-bit image contains millions of colors. If an alpha channel is present, it also uses 8 bits, for a total of 32 bits—often referred to as millions+ of colors. Regardless of the bit depth of the source clips, Premiere Pro always uses 32 bits to process video.
