    When the image is opaque but the output ProRes format has an alpha
    component (4 component, 32 bits per pixel), Apple requires that we
    signal that it should be ignored by setting the depth to 24 bits per
    pixel. Not doing so causes the encoded files to fail validation.
    So we set that in the caps and qtmux sets the depth value in the
    container, which will be read by demuxers so that decoders can skip
    those bytes entirely. qtdemux does this, but vtdec does not use this
    information at present.
    The sister change was made in qtmux and qtdemux in:
