  • @Mrhechang Thanks always mate! Based on the feedback from you, I am further improving GOLGOP3-13 now. :-)

  • @Shon No, I am speaking of shutter speed. I was exposing the shots longer than usual so movement blurred (I hope now I get the vocabulary right).

  • @bkmcwd I am uploading some recent lowlight shotsto my Dropbox. Check your mailbox ;)

  • I came back. Thanks, @Tobsen! I finished downloading. Looks so coooool!!! :-)

    "GOLGOP3-13-A_Candidate 4" and "GOLGOP3-13-MAX_Candidate 4"

    I release the each 4th candidates for "GOLGOP3-13-A" and "GOLGOP3-13-MAX" settings.

    These have changed also including the matrix from the former candidates.

    The main changed parts are "having changed all matrices into I=P=B", and "improvement in freezing-proof performance" especially in HBR. I think that the bit rate in HBR probably becomes low rather than a former candidate. However, the freezing issue at the moment of the focus was solved also in Panny lens use.

    Please try them! And many thanks for your feedbacks!

    Special thanks to @Mrhechang and @syoushow! :-)

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


    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 110M in 24p, about 75M in HBR.)

    *These two settings are completely the same except 24p.

    *24H and 24L are high quality 3GOP setting with mega size I-frames in GOLGOP3-13-A.

    *24H and 24L are high quality 3GOP setting with super mega size I-frames in GOLGOP3-13-MAX.

    *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 except 24p in GOLGOP3-13-MAX, 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.

    "GOP3ZILLA_3_Candidate 3"

    I release the 3rd candidate for "GOP3ZILLA_3" setting.

    In this version, the freezing issue at the moment of the focus in HBR or 720p is canceled.

    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"

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

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

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

  • UPDATE(2012/11/06)These candidates of GOLGOP3-13 are upgraded as official settings as a result of verification.


    @ GOLGOP3-13 lovers :-)

    "GOLGOP3-13-A_Candidate 4b" , "GOLGOP3-13-MAX_Candidate 4b" , "GOLGOP3-13-A_Candidate 5" and "GOLGOP3-13-MAX_Candidate 5"

    I release the next candidates for "GOLGOP3-13-A" and "GOLGOP3-13-MAX" settings.

    All of these matrices are the same as C4. The main changed parts are having further raised freeze tolerance especially in HBR.

    The difference between C4b and C5 is a difference in how depending on which the bit rate appears. I am not sure which candidate is the better. Please judge.

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

    Please try them! And many thanks for your feedbacks!

  • @All @flaschus

    Do I need to improve Valkyrie Flat4 further? Are there those who are using VF4? If required, I also further improve this. :-)

  • @bkmcwd Will try out the Valkyrie Flat4 very soon. I'm currently using Apocalypse Boom and like it a lot. Is Valkyrie Flat4 designed to be similar to this? What would you say are the similarities and differences between Apoc Now Boom and Valkyrie Flat4? Thank you.

  • @matt_gh2 Many thanks for trying VF4! :-)

    Is Valkyrie Flat4 designed to be similar to this? What would you say are the similarities and differences between Apoc Now Boom and Valkyrie Flat4?

    Honestly, since I myself have not verified fully yet about the image quality of Flat4, I am not sure. However, since @flaschus has already used it, I think that he is detailed about it. My having tried hard about Flat4 is making it stabilized, adopting this matrix in all rec modes. It is designed as 3GOP structure in 24p, HBR and 1080i so that the big I frame which naturally cannot be used with the Intra structure can be used.

    When I imagine from the result of 444 pure matrices of Chris, at Flat4 matrix as it is, artifacts may appear in HBR or 720p. Of course, this will be influenced by the lens used. Supposing I improve VF4, there are two steps. As the first step, if necessary, it is the work which optimizes a matrix to modes other than 24p. As the second, it is the work which stabilizes it infinite. I think that instability remains a little in HBR since VF4 present is somewhat old setting. Although I think that I will improve at least this instability but, I think that I will cleave my resource to other work if unnecessary.

    If you take to VF4, I will improve, but how are you?

  • @bkmcwd thx for all your awesome work!

  • @Mirrorkisser Thank YOU mate! I am in the strengthening weeks of the improvement in reliability now. I aim at the settings which never freeze or stop with 95MB/s SDXC. :-)

  • @bkmcwd I used C1.5b for the last week. It looks good and I didn't have problems in camera - using Sandisk 32GB 45MB/s card. I only have some problems playing in the PC - the video slows down every 2seconds - but that is probably a player/codec problem. I didn't have time yet to transcode to something like prores and test, I did rewrap but it plays the same.

  • @kankala Many thanks for your report! Yes, in ordinary usage, C1.5b may also be satisfactory. However, I improved just in case. Please also try it. :-)

  • @bkmcwd: what is the improved candidated over c1.5b? i thought that was the latest valkyrie? thx

  • @Mirrorkisser

    what is the improved candidated over c1.5b?

    I am sorry that my English is unclear. In HBR of C1.5b, there was a problem which the camera freezes the moment of focusing. Since this issue is influenced by your use lens and conditions, it may hardly become a problem practically. However, it is C1.5c that I canceled this issue just in case. Again, improving points are reliability and stability. Did it get across to you? :-)

  • yes! thank you very much for the explanation. i will try c.1.5 c immediately as 1.5b was my favourite before :)

  • @Mirrorkisser Many thanks for using C1.5b and C1.5c. :-)
