Export 16-bit PNG?

Is there a way to save a still frame as 16-PNG instead of 8-bit when working with with 10-bit source? Seems like Vegas is only creating 8-bit images no matter what my project settings are.

It can only create 64bit or 128bit (ACES-mode) depth stills.

@Yelandkeil, I think he's referring to the "Save Snapshot" button above the preview screen - not an image sequence. Here's my details on a saved PNG:

Image
Format                                   : PNG
Format/Info                              : Portable Network Graphic
Compression                              : Deflate
Width                                    : 1 280 pixels
Height                                   : 720 pixels
Color space                              : RGBA
Bit depth                                : 8 bits
Compression mode                         : Lossless
Stream size                              : 461 KiB (100%)

Technically, it's 32-bits as it's 8-bits R, 8-bits G, 8-bits B, 8-bits A.

yeah I can export a 16-bit TIFF sequence using image sequence-render, but not the save snapshot button. ?

Then the rendered still is exact 16bit: 4x16=64bit.
And in ACES it's 32floating=128bit.

Funny is, snapshot if saved in HDR10-mode, it's 8bit ST2084 color space (also with alpha-channel).
