  • Any test footage with this? Sound GLORIOUS! :)
  • @nomad Thanks - I thought it might be something like that - the noise at GOP1 definitely looks different. Oh and @driftwood, the card I'm using is a class 6!! Only just that patch is even more amazing.
  • *** NEW TerrAQuake *** This is seAQuake verB for poorer type 10 cards. Very slight drop in frame size to work on non top spec type 10 cards.
    Driftwood TerrAQuake for poorer Type 10 cards hi quality INTRA -
  • @Mark_the_Harp
    Neatvideo works better because it's a temporal denoiser and with GOP1 the noise is changing from frame to frame, just as it comes from the sensor. Any larger GOP is smearing noise over time.
  • @Driftwood wow spanning at that high a bitrate! gonna have to test this one! Just curious - how did you get spanning to work - was it just trying until you got the right lucky combination of settings, or is there a method to it?

    Looks like this would get you about an hour of 24H on a 32 GB card. Ideally I'd like to have a setting that can record for longer than that on one 32GB card, but I assume pushing the 24L setting lower in Spanbybitchup would be a problem since it is GOP1? Or since everything is intricately balanced?
  • @Driftwood your Spanbybitchup patch is amazing. I've got a band shoot tomorrow including some backstage footage to get, and this is just the dog's nuts. With my f1.4 Nikon at 6400 or 12800 it's amazing, plus I notice with GOP1, Neat NR seems to work a lot better. Maybe because the noise is more even in size than the slightly clumpy noise which I have had before at high ISO. I have avoided low gop stuff up till now but it's such a great look for what I need to do for my backstage / onstage footage.

    I've modified it to provide 44m / 66m so I have the choice (at 44m it will record on a 16 gig card for 46mins which will be great for our gig as we've organised the music in 45min chunks), plus the 2fps MJPEG hack to do some timelapse of the setup in the hall. Thank you a million times!!
  • Yes, I'm looking forward to testing driftwood's new settings out this weeekend.

    Also, the great thing is these are all 24H GOP1 ! So, even if you're using SpanMyBitchUp and like what you see in a static shot, it will be of the same quality for each motion frame.

  • @ Hallvalla, cheers for that, I can now work out what to add to the SpanMyBitchUp settings :)
  • Sorry - here you go:
  • @ Hallvalla, I can't spot the difference between that one and the original, have you uploaded the original driftwood one ?
  • Driftwood's latest SeaQuake + MPEG Timelapse settings
  • @driftwood, cheers for the SpanMyBitchUp patch, wicked to have optimised bit rates that still span :)

    I reckon I will settle on using this one.
    I have just applied it and I'm trying it out in 24H cinema mode at the mo, it has just ticked past 15 mins with no problems on my 32gb sanddisk extreme pro 45mb card :)

    superb work Driftwood and Vitaliy
  • @driftwood- thanks for your latest AQuamotion v2 patch, Finally a setting the span's. Its not as good as seAQuake but honestly its worth the compromise.
  • This is probably a terrible question, but when I click on the link to download PTool ( my browser just spins and spins, but I can't download the file. Does this happen to anyone else?
  • @johnnym who knows...? ...maybe!
    AQuamotion version 2 @HillTop1 can be found on the patches site.
  • @driftwood

    you think the detail of the MJPEG can be improved?
  • Sweet! Looking forward to it ;-)
  • It'll be out tonight.
  • @driftwood, there's an AQUAMOTION ver 2? can you point me to where it's at?
  • After AQUAMOTION ver 2, next project is mjpeg for Driftwood. :-)
  • @driftwood That's great. Thank you. When you say used correctly, I'm guessing you are referring to exposed correctly right? Great job!
  • @smsjr in theory seaquake will give you best pictures as it makes use of the encoder better. Used correctly, its certainly the cleanest yet.
  • @Driftwood Would you say that your SeAQuake setting under 3.63D is the best one you have come up with yet? I am liking the reAquainted setting but I'm thinking of giving seAQuake a shot. I'm actually less interested in high ISO (anything above 3200) and more interested in achieving the following:
    - Cleanest footage at 1080P 24fps (that's all I use the camera for)
    - Smoothest looking motion. Doesn't have to look like film exactly just smooth, artifact free movement. No strobing other than typical 24 frame stuff
    - Detail
    - Noise that is pleasing, yet easy to remove in post if need be.
    - spanning (I can deal if this is not possible at high bitrate. I just make sure takes are under 4 minutes)

    Three things that currently frustrate me with the camera are:
    - ISO Bug (I assume not fixed in 3.63D)
    - Gamma bug on monitoring
    - Ghosting flares (not solvable by firmware :-) )

    Curious to hear your feedback on what patch currently fits that description best utilizing 3.63D
