  • @bkmcwd Hey mate! A friend and I founded a small young production company and - of course! - we are using the GH2 loaded with your Valkyrie C1.5b as well. While we are working on our first client projects, we uploaded some fun shots with the GH2 and FS700 as a little teaser for the upcoming showreel. The lowlight shots are all shot with GH2 and your settings ;) Thanks for all the hard work! Cheers!

    EDIT: the macro shot of the bee was shot with the 14-140mm and macro extension tubes ;)

  • @bkmcwd Can't wait for Valkyrie Cinema Smooth to be released.

  • @Tobsen

    So coooool mate! Thank YOU for using my Valkyrie. :-)

    @abraham1307

    Although I cannot open to the public yet because of a promise "I release after Nick releases", I will send it to you by PM. Please feed back the tried result. :-)

  • @bkmcwd i will be happy to test your cinema preset too!

  • @zsound Thanks! Since I am out now, I will send PM later. :-)

  • @bkmcwd Release yours, I'll finalise mine over the next few days.

  • @driftwood

    Thanks Nick! OK, I will release today. :-)

  • @zsound I am still out now. Since I will release later, please try it then. Thanks! :-)

  • No problem @bkmcwd, there's no rush, you can send me it next week if you want. I couldn't use it this weekend cause it will be raining all the weekend on the french riviera... ( i like natural light)

  • @abraham1307

    Artifacts appear around the edges of objects that are in focus. I tested on multiple subjects and the outcome has been the same with these artifacts around the edges.

    Many thanks for your feedback by PM! I will check it and am going to tweak the matrix later for "TYPE-ZERO2". :-)

  • @bkmcwd.

    Hello!

    After loading your Cinema Smooth, I did not recieve any errors while shooting, I did, however recieve an interesting problem, not sure what causes this to happen; when windows explorer reads some of the 24h footage shot, the bitrate displays as "256kbps" the file plays back fine, but is this a sign of the patch? attached a screenshot from the bottom of windows explorer....

  • @flaschus Hi mate! Many thanks for your report. Since the improved version is released soon, please try. :-)

    when windows explorer reads some of the 24h footage shot, the bitrate displays as "256kbps" the file plays back fine, but is this a sign of the patch?

    I have also experienced many same issues until now. Since I was experiencing also not only in my settings but in other persons' settings, I did not care at all. Is there any detailed person some?

  • @ GOLGOP3-13 lovers :-)

    "GOLGOP3-13-A2_BETA" and "GOLGOP3-13-MAX2_BETA"

    I release the new "GOLGOP3-13-A2" and "GOLGOP3-13-MAX2" settings.

    All of these matrices are the same as V1s. The main changed parts are having realized Freeze-les and high-bitrate in HBR and 720p. Especially in 60p, the highest bit rate goes up to 65M from 55M, and is upgraded from 9GOP to 6GOP.

    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.)

    *'MAX' versin and 'A' version are completely the same except 24p.

    *The original matrix is adopted in the newest GOLGOP3-13s. It is the middle of a Sedna matrix and a stock character. If it says plainly, it will be the Sedna matrix optimized in 3GOP structure.

    *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. 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.

  • I am also working on improving Valkyries.

    The improved versions of Valkyrie 444_TYPE-ZERO2 and CS_TYPE-ZERO1 are due to be released soon! :-)

  • @bkmcwd @flaschus

    is it possible that windows explorer displays with 256kbps only audio bitrate of your files? Does this patch record sound in 256kbps?

  • @tetakpatak

    ??? Even if I check in windows explorer, audio is displayed as 256kbps. Although I have seen the file as which only an audio is displayed occasionally before, since there was no problem in contents, I do not care. Although I do not know to be a file with which setting, it has seen in the high-bitrate setting several times.

  • @bkmcwd I will test and let you know how everything goes.

  • hey could it be that I noticed some drops in the framerate with Valkyrie 444? I'm using a 45MB/s card ... setting was HBR 25fps

  • @abraham1307 Many thanks always mate! :-)

    @2many Thanks for your report! :-)

    some drops in the framerate with Valkyrie 444

    About the drops of the framerate, it was heard for the first time. Is it in what kind of situation concretely? Could you present the data itself or StreamParser results?

    EDIT: Would you tell also about the exact edition of 444?

  • Since verification finished mostly, I am going to release Valkyrie 444 TYPE-ZERO2 C1.5e today. :-)

  • I was using hybrid C1.

    It's odd though, now that I play the footage; where I thought I noticed a slight drop in frames, it appears to be normal again! I could have sworn that I saw something strange yesterday, as if a few frames got skipped..

    I still do notice the kind of 'choppyness' in the movements of faces in screen. But I'm guessing this isn't settings related but camera sensor related and thus not fixable; footage looks great already anyway.

    Thanks! :)
