Driftwood VY Canis Majoris: This thread will now be integrated into 'Driftwood Series 6 Settings'
  • We measure brightness emitted off our subject matter by its Luma values, then, how much chrominance signal governs the hue and saturation of the recorded color. Known as Y'CbCr, the luma and chrominance information are digital sample values partly maximised by the quantisation matrix and scalers. Chrominance is usually represented as two color-difference components: U = B' − Y' (blue − luma) and V = R' − Y' (red − luma).

    We also have deblocking tables to mess with. How digitally smoothed should we treat the signal of the adjoining sampled macroblocks?

    VY Canis Majoris explores these areas further and each setting analyses approximate conditions of input required for certain times of the day where the natural light is weaker/stronger.

    The first releases were VY Canis Majoris 'Day PM', 'Night', 'Skin Tone Soft', and the Crossfire released 'Green Screen' over on the other thread (an Intra version is being prepared). 'Day AM' will be out very soon. Including the highest measured matrix to date - no AQ required, tried and tested deblocking over the three main settings (24p, HBR and 720p) this is the first in a few settings for various filming conditions.

    More settings in this series to come... ... ;-)

    LOOKOUT FOR SOME NEW TERRIFIC MATRIX SETS FROM CHRIS BRANDIN ON CANIS MAJORIS.

    NOTE: ALL MY CANIS SETTINGS HAVE THE 4 MINUTE RECORD LIMITATION CHECKED TO GUARANTEE WRITES. UNCHECK THE TIME LIMIT AT THE BOTTOM OF PTOOLS AND ENABLE > 30 MINUTE LIMIT AT THE TOP OF PTOOLS TO RELEASE THIS.

    REMEMBER: IF YOU USE THESE SETTINGS PLEASE MAKE A DONATION ABOVE TO VITALIY KISELEV FOR HIS TIRELESS WORK IN MAKING THIS HAPPEN. THESE SETTINGS ARE TOTALLY DEDICATED TO HIM. THERE ARE MANY QUIET USERS OUT THERE WHO HAVE NEVER BOTHERED OFFERING ANYTHING. PLEASE, PLEASE HELP TO KEEP THESE HACKS GOING. NO MORE DONATIONS = NO MORE SETTINGS. IF YOU HAVE MADE A SMALL CONTRIBUTION IN THE PAST, NOW IS THE TIME TO DONATE AGAIN. Thankyou, Nick

  • Can't wait for Apocalypse Now! (when?)

    edit -- also, I think Godfather would be a more fitting name for this patch.

  • hey everyone. just shot this music video with CM Night and I have to say it is AMAZING. Had some issues with the generator we borrowed so I was forced to up the ISO to around 1250. The patch TOTALLY SAVED THE PRODUCTION! thanks again to Vitaliy and Driftwood for the amazing work!

  • @driftwood round 2 on tuesday??? sir will you share few description(improvements) about round 1??

  • @driftwood sir "Apocalypse Now" name is so scary,....

  • @driftwood @ian_t why the reference to the movie!? now I must got watch it lol

  • @driftwood Nice to hear about the new Canis Majoris.

    Is there a place here where the differences between the hacks are described?

    I mean, in this thread we have a progression of one hack, and its pretty clear, I guess these are evolution from SpanMyBitchUp and Sedna, however, why is there another thread for Canis Majoris?

    Where can I find this info? Or do I need to spend 6 hours studying a bunch of different threads?

    Thanks

  • He he he @Driftwood..the new name doesn't have anything to do with the fact that Mr. Copolla picked the GH-2 as his favorite in the Zacuto test does it? Word is he's talking about buying his wife one (if she doesn't have one already).

    But yeah....fitting name.

  • Round 2 of the new Canis Majoris settings - to be called 'Apocalypse Now; will go to testing on Tuesday. :-)new

  • @thepalalias my belated happy birthday wishes to your papa....hope you are doing superb making these music videos....i am looking forward,...please unload all of them once u complete it

  • @plasmasmp Send a message to driftwood

  • I have time to test if needed. I only use canis night anymore with the GH2. I'm excited to see if this new matrix makes a difference.

  • @thepalalias Patience is a virtue!

    Tell your Father happy belated birthday!

  • @rajamalik I am in the beta group and hope to finally have some time to test within a few days. Right now I am in the process of dealing with some logistics issues to prepare the music video for "Listen to the Sound" for grading. It's also been holiday season around here (4th of July and my father's birthday), and I've been consulting for Numerical Sound on two new products they are about to release.

    So between all that and my two electronica singles in production for release later this summer (and assisting one of my students that at 12 years old was a finalist as a stop-motion animation lead for a national ad-campaign) I've been lucky if I can manage an hour of shooting a week for the last couple weeks.

    As far as the beta - it looks exciting but everyone should be patient. There is still a LOT of testing left to be done. :)

  • Yeah, I'm interested in this and what the results are..

  • @thepalalias are u gonna be a part of beta testing??? any news yet?? did u fixed u r cam?? how is life man,...any new projects??

  • @thepalalias good to hear,....i would like to participate too,...

  • @rajamalik I haven't posted on the site in about 11 days (very unusual for me) so I promise there is no big secret I am hiding. :) Rest assured that if I get free time, it will be going towards helping test for @driftwood.

  • It's so quiet here... Peace before storm?...

  • @peternap I would love to participate in beta testing. Especially if it's just about improving rolling shutter and motion blur. I cant use canis for all kind of shots because all canis patches has more motion blur and rolling shutter problem. Can't pan a shot,..fast moving objects always blurs. I patched back to cluster v6 seems better in these cases.but canis holds the throne. if we get a very reliable patch which runs all modes well for 95m/s sdxc card holders which is high detailed but without too much motion blur and extreme rolling shutter, it will sure beat Sedna and canis.i think future Devlopement in all mode Working clusters will hold such a reliability. Let's watch the developement.

  • @peternap I thought it would be a diffirent idea. low bitrate high details,..ha ha,.. Ya cluster v6 all mode working patches are superb. It will be soo good if all mode works with max details and good motion without blur. 154 mbit Sedna A is better than 176mbit quantum and seaquake. so who knows may be we might get 144mbit patch beats 176 and 154,...let's see,..every member has an idea.master takes the wise one.

  • @rajamalik To be honest, Nick has set some high hurdles for himself. For detail shots it's gonna be hard for him to beat Sedna AQA and CM Night....but this looks like he just may do it.

  • @peter ha ha,..k,..me too waiting for beta test
