Re: x265 codec produced video with banding while 10bit/12bit codec at same settings doesn't, even though the source is 8

I think I should be OK with 265 10bit, all my devices seemed to play the test sample I made without issue so it's all good.

I see! So are there any drawbacks to using the 10bit codec as opposed to the regular one for 8bit sources or should I just use the 10bit one from now on?

Well, that's useful. None of the images are showing up and I can't edit the original post. You'll just have to look at this album on imgur instead:

x265 codec produced video with banding while 10bit/12bit codec at same settings doesn't, even though the source is 8bit.

Description of problem or question: There is visible banding in dark scenes when using the 8bit x265 encoder at mid-range CQ and encoder preset levels. For example I'm encoding blade runner blu-ray, an 8bit source, at CQ18 using the fast encoder preset. Banding can be quite visible in some scenes. ...
