  • hello, I am new to the forum. Thanks for the great effort for this amazing hack. My question is next: when I record 24p cinema 12 minutes continuous and I stopped recording, next time I try to record again and a message appears on my camera "AVCHD is full" My card is 64 Extreme Pro 95MB / s, has not reached half. Only 2 minutes recording in 2k.

    This is normal in this hack? sorry for my English

  • I like C1.5b better than C1.4b. :-)

  • Since C1.4 was also frozen, I am just going to adjust C1.4 and C1.5 now. I am soory that C1.6 is not so good. In order to avoid confusion, I am going to release C1.4b and C1.5b. :-)

  • @abraham1307 Many thanks for feedbacks! :-)

  • Going to be testing C1.6 tomorrow in HBR 30 and will let you know how everything goes

  • I will return the GOP table of 1080i in TYPE-ZERO2. Probably also in C1.5, I think that it will be satisfactory on the same GOP table as C1.4 in 1080i.

    EDIT: Since there is a problem if completely the same, I am tweaking more. :-(

  • Woops! C1.5 froze during the torture test in HBR30p. :-( I will improve immediately.

  • I also set quick comparison of GOLGOP3-13, GOP3ZILLA and Valkyrie Flat4 moreover.

    *These are only in HBR30p and 720p/60.

  • I did quick comparison of C1.4 and C1.5 of TYPE-ZERO2 in my room.

    *These are only in HBR30p and 720p/60.

    As long as I looked at these results, I think that C1.5 is better. Although the result may change according to conditions, of course...

  • @peternap Many thanks for report mate! :-) Please tell me the comment about 720p of C1.4. Which is the more nearly better between C1.3 and C1.4?

    And, since 720p of C1.5 is an entire different setting, I would like to also hear the comment about it.

  • @abraham1307

    Reference again, I myself have not checked completely yet. However, @flaschus said that it is very flexible with grading. Since priority was given to my making it stabilized about this Flat4 version, using a matrix as it is, about image quality, I myself am not sure, either. Please try it! :-)

  • Candidate 1.4 I was shooting a police briefing tonight and was bored to death, so I went outside to get some Broll. While I had the AC160 running on some college students, a woman who claimed to be a candidate for city council came up and started talking to the camera.

    I locked it down and grabbed the GH2 to get B shots. Light was horrible. ISO 2000 50 1.4 Canon lens, standard -2 I flat love this setting.

  • @flaschus and @bkmcwd, Sorry for the noob question but what is the benefits of a flat4 matrix? and is it good in HBR 30 because i do a lot of commercials.

  • @ GOP3ZILLA lovers :-)

    "GOP3ZILLA_3_Candidate 2"

    I release the 2nd candidate for "GOP3ZILLA_3" setting.

    This is the simple setting which harnessed the feature of the stock as it was.

    This version is improved only in 720p. IMO, this 720p is better than C1.

    Please try it! And many thanks for your feedbacks!

    If this is also still unstable, I will further adjust.

    *Of course, already combined with excellent audio tune @thepalalias's "Pasadena_Pulse_Audio_V2_Beta2"

    *Except 720p, it is altogether the same as C1.


    NOTE:

    *Although bit rate setups are quite high, the bit rate which actually appears are lower than these. Since the actual bit rate changes by the object to shoot, please confirm by yourself.(Max bitrate : about 100M in 24p, about 75M in HBR.)

    *24H and 24L are high quality 3GOP setting with mega size I-frames.

    *24p80%(30p) is available in 24H & 24L both.

    *60i, 50i, HBR30p and HBR25p are also high quality and stable 3GOP settings.

    *720/50p and 720/60p are 6GOP and 9GOP. It has tuned up so that the bit rate at the time of motion may go up rather than the time of statics.

    *I especially recommend you use with SanDisk 95MB/s 64GB SDXC card.

    *In camera playback is available in all rec mode, at least available after reboot the camera.(Not tested full yet, but probably)

    *EX Tele, iA mode work.(Not tested full yet, but probably)

    *Spanning in 24H, 24L with SanDisk 95MB/s 64GB SDXC Card. In other rec mode, need test.

    *Spanning in other cards needs to be tested.

  • @thomisus

    Thanks for using my settings! :-)

    Since I am giving top priority to stability, I am glad to hear the comment from you.

  • @bkmcwd

    I have a GH2 since May and tried different hacks.. To me your settings are the most stable and suitable for my needs.. I really like golgop3-13 c1 and c2.. I can't use 444 matrix because in HBR and AVCHD i get rain like pulsing noise, also with original driftwood settings.. in 24p it's ok..

  • @Tobsen Many thanks for feedbacks from you especially in PAL modes! :-)

  • @Bonzai Hi mate! :-) It seems that you have challenged the interesting trial. I am not sure about TB. However, I am glad if TYPE-ZERO2 is helpful to you.

  • @bkmcwd yup, will go out and test C1.5 next week once, the camera is back from France ;)

  • @bkmcwd - I successfully merged duartix 24h timeHBusteR 2.0 setb.ini with Valkyrie 444 TYPE-ZERO2_Candidate1.5. 30HBR timeHBusteR time lapses just fine while 1080 24P Cinema, 1080 24P VMM 80% and 720 60P continue to work as normal modes without degrading effects.

    I thought you might find it interesting in that I tested all modes with my badly lighted 'stairwell' test setup - 1 minute panning clips in normal non-timelapse modes at ISO 3200 with AF on and 3 minute still clips at ISO 640 with manual focus in 'time lapse' HBR 30P mode at SS 2.5 without experiencing any difficulties (no hangs and the like).

    StreamParser analysis of the clips look normal to me. I was pleasantly surprised as many hacks (especially high bit rate ones) exhibit some sort of weakness in at least one mode when subjected to that environment. I haven't had time to really 'eyeball' the pixels but TYPE-ZERO2_Candidate1.5 was a really solid performer.

    Anyone wishing to try out this 'merge' should review my oct 9 &10 posts in the GH2 - 2.5fps AVCHD 24h Timebuster/TimeHBusteR 2.0 settings thread (http://www.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/comment/91284#Comment_91284)

  • @flaschus Thanks for report! Looks nice. :-)

    "no hangups"

    This is my biggest concerns.

    @Tobsen I also try C1.5 more. If saying strictly, in C1.3 and C1.4, artifacts will appear under specific conditions. However, depending on the lens used, it may be satisfactory at all. Since I aim at the to the last safest setting, eventually I may adopt the line of C1.5. In C1.4(C1.3) and C1.5, a character may be considerably different. When you have time, I want you to compare by all means. :-)

  • @bkmcwd thanks for clarification mate :) I think I'll stick to 1.3 then, or upgrade to 1.4 if I got some time tomorrow.
