    GOP3ZILLA4_BETA2

    bkmcwd GOP3ZILLA4_BETA2 - setg.ini - Released 31/05/2014


    I release the new version of "GOP3ZILLA" setting.

    In this version, the GOP tables are adjusted more appropriately. I think that this is further stable from previous GOP3ZILLA settings in HBR or 720p.

    Please try it! And many thanks for your feedbacks!

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

    Special thanks to all silent users of my settings! :-)

    Of course, many thanks to @cbrandin and KING @driftwood!

    • In camera playback is available in all rec modes,

    *Supposing you use "SH" mode safely in 60p, please turn OFF iA and i dynamic range control. On the other hand, in other rec modes, it is satisfactory with iA or i dynamic range control at all.

    *Although I have received the report that it was able to be used also with the slower card, I especially recommend you use with SanDisk 95MB/s 64GB SDXC card.

  • wait, does this mean "Upto 48M for Top Quality HBR/FSH modes" ...this will work on classic Class10 card?...because i am looking for a HBR hack than can work with cheapo Class10 card.

  • @dado023 Hi,

    *Although I have received the report that it was able to be used also with the slower card, I especially recommend you use with SanDisk 95MB/s 64GB SDXC card.

    Since the test in a slower card is endless, I myself am not carrying out. And I am glad if the results are fed back to me. :-)

  • @bkmcwd hack is really reliable tested on a standard A-Data 16 GB Class 10 SDHC Card and no hiccups especially against my bush of death. in 24p I received average speeds up to 84mbs, and 720p 60p speeds up to 44mbs.

  • Sorry, I was referring to the GOP3ZILLA4_BETA2.1 Hack.

  • @satudiomans

    did you have a chance to use it on Class 10 card you mentioned for a longer time, for example 20minutes of constant recording.......because 85mbs sounds really high for a Class10 sd card

  • @studiomans

    Many thanks for feedback and so sorry for my reply delayed.

  • GOLGOP3-13-A2_BETA13

    bkmcwd "GOLGOP3-13-A2_BETA13" - setj.ini - Released 07/07/2014


    This A2 is the version in which spanning is possible in all the rec modes.

    I think that the freezing issue at the moment of the focusing and zooming was solved nearly perfectly also in Panny lens use.

    Also on towi's Death Movie, span is possible for all the rec modes.

    Cautions are required to use iDRC or iA only in 720p.

    Please try it! And I am very glad if I can get feedbacks from you.

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

    Of course, many thanks to @cbrandin and KING @driftwood!

  • @bkmcwd fantastic! is it the 12mm slr?

  • @AlbertZ

    THX! :-)

    is the 12mm slr?

    No, it is Panny 12-35mm.

  • GOLGOP3-13-A2 24p

  • I tried the latest hack during some day shots.

  • Hi, I'm using GOP3ZILLA4_BETA2.1, and have just tested all the video modes, but in FCP X, both FSH and HBR mode at 1080p show up as being recorded at 25i. 24p cinema and slow motion at 80% both show up at 23.98 so are ok... is there something I've done wrong or is it to do with PAL NTSC differences?

  • Testing DaVinci's intergration with Edius. Shot with the latest settings. Excellent result so far. @24p. Sorry for the Greek HipHop lyrics, but I liked the beat so much.

  • It's been a long time. :-)

    @dlzn @sakattaq76

    Many thanks for nice footage!

    Although I do not have time to test or shoot these days, I have shot after a long time.

    *No grading both

    bkmcwd "Valkyrie 444 TYPE-ZERO4 BETA5" - seta.ini - Released 20/08/2014

    *All modes were changed from BETA4.5. :-)

    *The problem that BETA4.5 cannot often be spaned in 24H is solved.


    This TYPE-ZERO4 is also the version as which "balance of gradation and resolving" was considered in all the modes.

    I think that the freezing issue at the moment of the focusing and zooming was solved nearly perfectly also in Panny lens use.

    Although towi's Death Movie is cleared in all the modes, there is no telling whether spanning is possible in other than 24p.

    *Probably, spanning is possible in all the rec modes.

    Cautions are required to use iDRC or iA only in 60p.

    Please try it! And I am very glad if I can get feedbacks from you.

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