Strange jitter effect from GH2 footage in 720x480 render http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/10649/strange-jitter-effect-from-gh2-footage-in-720x480-render Sat, 21 Jun 2014 16:28:44 -0600 Brian_Siano 10649@/talks/discussions I'm finishing up a big project, which I shot with about seven different cameras; Canons, a Panasonic camcorder, a GH3 and a GH2 using the Cake patch. The original footage is 1080p. I rendered the streams down to 720p for easier editing. I used these to render a 720x480 final product for a DVD. I'm using Premiere pro CS5 for all of this.

The problem is that the footage shot with the GH2 jitters oddly, like an old silent movie filmed at some archaic framerate. It's not catastrophic, but it's noticeable to me. I don't know why this is. Every bit of original footage is 29.97 fps. The scaled down versions I edited are all 29.97 fps.

I can think of only two things. The GH2 was using the Cake patch, which may have been a reason. Or, the GH2 was one of two cameras storing its video as AVHCD, while all the rest used MOV. But the other AVHCD footage looks fine.

Advice?

ADENDUM. Watching the original footage reveals that it appears to be interlaced. Don't recall shooting it in 1080i, but I guess that's what happened.

Automated Avid, ProRes & LW format conversions - auto file renaming tools http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/2486/automated-avid-prores-lw-format-conversions-auto-file-renaming-tools Sun, 04 Mar 2012 22:48:16 -0700 notrons 2486@/talks/discussions I'm looking for people who are interested in automated .mts file conversions to ProRes and Avid DNxHD 4:2:2 formats, or for import into Lightworks, to test my new DSLR Post Prep Utility Windows application. The program is designed to automate the process of creating either and or both HQ and proxy conversions on demand, automatically by watched folder, or can be scheduled for off-hours. It uses the ffmpeg engine for all of the conversions (which run in their own minimized windows). When in watched directory mode it can also be minimized to the system tray where it continues to provide notifications and watch for new files. The following conversions are currently supported;

HQ Formats - 4:2:2

Uncompressed 4:2:2 10bit (working with LW)
ProRes 4:2:2 YUV 10bit 176Mbs HQ
DNxHD 4:2:2 YUV 10bit 176Mbs HQ
MPEG4 Wrapper for Lightworks
MPEG-2 4:2:2 I-Frame w/ M701 tag (for Lightworks only)
MPEG-2 4:2:2 I-Frame (w/out M701 tag) 



Proxy formats

ProRes 4:2:2 YUV 10bit 36Mbs
DNxHD 4:2:2 YUV 10bit 36Mbs 1080P 24
DNxHD 4:2:2 YUV 10bit 60Mbs 720P 24
DNxHD 4:2:2 YUV 10bit 145Mbs 720P 60
DNxHD 4:2:2 YUV 10bit 115Mbs 720P 50

DNxHD and ProRes HQ conversions seem nearly identical, but I think ProRes is a little better quality as a proxy format. DNxHD renders much faster than ProRes. I have a beefy workstation with Matrox hardware and it can handle all of the usable formats pretty easily but I would love to hear about how they work out for others. Please give it a try and let me know about the experience!

Check out http://hdcinematics.com/NewWeb/tools.html for more info. Also available are tools that add custom prefixes and timestamps to files on a directory-wide basis - to help keep clips uniquely named and organized (ExtensionCord). You might want to grab the Matrox and Avid codecs while you're there and download a copy of HD-MINI to audition clips on demand.

With this utility you can select a different flavor of HQ codec from proxy codec and have both conversions done automatically and off-hours. If you use ExtensionCord to add a prefix and (file creation) timestamp to your files before converting, you can edit with the proxies and then offline / link to the HQ clips of exactly the same name at render time.

I hope you can find some use for these ...; )

Cheers!

Anamorphic rendering in Sony Vegas Pro 11 http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/10607/anamorphic-rendering-in-sony-vegas-pro-11 Sun, 15 Jun 2014 04:26:32 -0600 raf702 10607@/talks/discussions Hey all, I shoot on a Panasonic GH2 with an Iscorama anamorph 2x lens. I seem to have an issue with rendering to a stretched format for anamorphic viewing. 

For project properties I can set it to 3840x1080, but in the render options under custom templates. It won't allow me to use a custom 3840x1080 under the custom project size, for rendering under QuickTime which is the codec I always use. It changes to a random project size of 2048x1152 when I enter the values I want. I have no issues when using a squeezed format, but I'm trying to do a stretched format.

I appreciate anyones help and tips! Thanks

I've just got registered on this forum, after only reading (and learning!) for a while. Thanks for that! I've recently bought the Panasonic GH4 and now I'm about to finish my first videoproduction with it.

I've attached my project properties and render settings, but i'm wondering: what are the best render settings for the best image quality? And what are the best settings for Vimeo/YouTube purposes? In terms of bitrate, etc.

I will capture my footage @ 4K, but I will render it as a .mp4 full HD file.

Hope to hear from you!

Premiere Pro and DVD authoring question http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/10522/premiere-pro-and-dvd-authoring-question Mon, 02 Jun 2014 18:40:31 -0600 Brian_Siano 10522@/talks/discussions I'm working on a project where roughly seven video HD streams (both 720pand 1020p) are going to be rendered down onto a DVD (720x480). Thing is, when I do test renders from Premiere Pro (CS5) to check the quality, it takes a phenomenally long time. For example, a four-minute excerpt takes about two to three hours. The final product is roughly 2 hours long, so I'm looking at a looong render time.

I'd like to know any strategies for shortening this process. Would it be best to simply import the sequence into Encore,. and let Encore handle the DVD rendering? Or, should I use Premier Pro to export the video to an MPEG-2 file, and important that as an Encore asset?

(Also, if anyone has an FAQ on how to adjust render quality in Encore, send me the link. I've never been able to figure out anything beyond the basic bitrate setting.)

WinRewrap - Batch ReWrap MTS to MP4/MOV . http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/4775/-winrewrap-batch-rewrap-mts-to-mp4mov-. Sun, 30 Sep 2012 17:42:50 -0600 fatpig 4775@/talks/discussions Hello,

I wrote a little Tool called WinRewrap. It will Batch Process MTS Files to MP4/MOV and adjust References to the MTS accordingly in your XML File. It uses ffmbc. ( http://code.google.com/p/ffmbc/ ) I wrote it primarily for exchange between the new Sony Vegas Pro 12 and DaVinci Resolve. But it can be used for any Batch rewrapping task of MTS.

Of course, this is a very early version, so please let me know any problems that may occur. Note: Audio was converted to AAC in v0.1. Later version keeps the audio stream.

I hope you can use it as well as I can. Ideas, suggestions and Bug Reports, please post here.

regards

FatPig

Homepage: http://www.fatpigtures.com/software/

The Homepage is still in development. Anybody who would like to donate a small amount is appreciated :)


WinRewrap v 0.4

Changelog 0.4:

  • Added Cancel Option while ReWrapping
  • Added PCM and No Audio option

Changelog 0.3:

  • Added Option to Convert Audio to AAC
  • Added Check for 0-byte Files (returns error now)

========================================

Requirements:

  • ffmbc.exe (Release was tested with version 0.7.1 rc7) put it in the same folder as the WinRewrap exe.

  • Windows 7 / Vista Users may experience errors related to writing permissions.

Fix: Turn up your UAC to "always notify". if you turn it to not notifying, some applications are automatically denied access. like winrewrap.

to fix those, copy WinRewrap and ffmbc.exe to your Project Folder. (Tip: WinRewrap starts with its containing Folder under the Browse Dialog, If its your project Folder you can just click OK.)

========================================

Features:

support for rewrapping .MTS Files to .MP4 and .MOV using ffmbc.exe

this is essentially a frontend for ffmbc, designed for batch processing project folders containing multiple MTS Files and optionally an XML.

This enables project export from The New Sony Vegas Pro 12 to DaVinci Resolve, and can also be used for normal batch processing of entire Folders from GH2, etc.

It will automatically replace the MTS extensions to your new Container inside the XML, so you can automatically use it with the rewrapped files.

Known Issues:

Big Endian PCM Audio is not supported in Stream Copy Mode as of Version 0.4 (AF100) WinRewrap can, however convert to little Endian PCM Audio.

Bug reports please in the dedicated thread on personal-view.com

Has anyone here had their Super 8 films ran through a proper film scanner for archiving? How did it look? Did it cost a million dollars? ; ) I have about 13 reels of various lengths.

Lets talk about big files http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/9765/lets-talk-about-big-files Sun, 02 Mar 2014 03:46:17 -0700 UEstudios 9765@/talks/discussions So Im at this point where I directly transcode all my GH3 footage to prores4:4:4 (with Cinemartin) before performing my online editing. I edit offline out of crappy looking proxys because my system is crippled and slow. (Bulk rename utility allows me to keep all filenames consistent)

I edit my online on that Prores4:4:4 and then I export a DPX sequence out of AE. (Dpx's allow me to re-render specific parts of the piece without having to re-render all of it if something went wrong)

I want to put that back into Prores 4:4:4 but because Im on pc's I have very few options. Cinemartin doesnt cut it, it's giving too many problems to render Dpx sequences, specially adding the audio.

So I'm trying to find a way to get a 4:4:4 final output from my DPX sequence. The only workaround I found is (and I don't know if im totally messing up everything doing this) .. rendering it in "avi uncompressed" then import to cinemartin and then transcode to prores4:4:4 for archive or whatever.

Now: This Avi uncompressed format is everywhere from Vegas to premiere ae etc, what is it exacly? is it any better than prores444? Some people told me it has been "discontinued" or "just dont use that shit" type of things...

Is it a 4:4:4 format? Am I mixing different concepts here? Anybody using that?

Sure, filesize are enourmous, but im on working on 2 rigs, one for transcoding with 6tb space and another one for editing (a gaming laptop) with a 512gb ssd on it, both plugged to each other with a 1gbps lan. So... I can actually handle those filesizes.

To my eye, results look good, the final result is that it actually breaks down less when performing online that if I would just edit over the original h264.mov from the gh3

Any insights? Anybody can explain me in detail what is that uncompressed avi about?

Edit: So no, I'm not so sure that is better to transcode... just ran a test:

Took 1 50p50mbpsIPB clip from the GH3 Transcode to Prores444 and Avi uncompressed apply same codec destruction pack of effects check

I noted one thing: Artifacts would pop out like crazy when doing the same on a darker scene, although on that one of the test where there is a nice dynamic range... I actually had some trouble making the artifacts pop out properly.

GH3 Data rate and colour management compression http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/9174/gh3-data-rate-and-colour-management-compression Mon, 23 Dec 2013 06:05:35 -0700 Wotsisname 9174@/talks/discussions Hi all,

I am confused about the 50mbps / 72mbps date rate that the GH3 supposedly records at.

My footage, recorded as H264 MOV files in either of these high bit rates, is listed in FCP as between 5.8mbps and 8.5mbps. Analysing the footage with cinema tools reveals the same data rate - not the 50 / 72 it should be.

If I convert the files to ProRes I get the higher data rates - around 30 - 60mbps. Although this is closer, and sometimes in excess of the data rate I want, am I not merely up-resing the footage? The new date rate might be higher, but if it is not what the camera recorded, the information isn't t there.

I am also confused about the colour management. My h264 footage has a colour profile of 1-1-1. Is that the best I can get? I read somewhere that the GH3 will record 2-4-1. How do I set that?

Again up-resing to prores 422 or 444 will not introduce colours that are not recorded in the first place!

I look forward to hearing people's thoughts.

90% of my audience enjoys my clips at 360p. I need to get the most of it.

Here internet tops at 4mbps, that means that the 1080p option is only usable if you are going to download it or for the richer people. But when it comes to the general public, the 360p option is what most people is using. So I need my videos to look the best I can get them to look in that option. I I found out after a few tries that uploading files at the same bitrate as the camera which is around 70mbps (shooting on a Gh3) it doesn't make much difference than uploading files @35mbps or @100mbps. H264 codec.

Sometimes I even got superblocking going there even uploading such huge files. I exported from After Effects and Premiere and even Vegas, and results are gorgeus on my computer and so on but I can still can't get to have the 360p resolution that I have seen around youtube for some famous music videos. For example Gangnamstyle at 360p looks rather nice.

My videos with issues:

Check out that super blocking at second 16. Notice how the title graphic looks great. May it be some wrong I-frame P B Frame setting? this one uploaded at 70mbps.

Check out throughout this whole clip how from 360p to 480p the change is massive

This videos on a 24inch screen are absolute sharp and added filmish grain too.

How can I manage to have youtube render my video the best possible at the 360p option? I guess changing some format settings to match youtube's or something may do the trick?

Vevo stuff:

Notice how at 360p the quality is rather ok. Do Vevo people get more bitrate or something? Upload uncompressed?

I find this rather important, it means the first sight viewers have of the piece. Even more important for me when I know 90% of the public enjoys it at 360p :(

Thanks for reading
