GH2 High Quality GOP3 Settings, Series 2: 'AN' Valkyrie, GOLGOP3-13, GOP3ZILLA, Duke, natural :-)

  • On the work in Spizz, Valkyrie was also further improved.

    As a result of getting @Azo to try HBR30p, it is clearly better than BETA4.3.

    Although I have repeated the test of Spizz, I plan to release it after that. :-)

  • Valkyrie 444 TYPE-ZERO4 BETA4.4

    bkmcwd "Valkyrie 444 TYPE-ZERO4 BETA4.4" - seta.ini - Released 04/09/2013

    *All the rec modes were changed from BETA4.3. :-)


    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 span is possible in other than 24p.

    *Probably, other than 24p, it may be unable to span occasionally.

    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.

    Special thanks to @Azo, @towi and all silent users of my settings! :-)

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

  • I gave explanation to TZ3.

    Spanning is thought as important in TZ3 of Valkyrie.

    Image quality is thought as important in TZ4.

    For the next, I would like to prepare GOP3ZILLA by which span was thought as important. :-)

  • Please, make Valkyrie 444 TYPE-ZERO3 2.0 with anamorphic modification of the latest MJPEG 2k settings.

  • @producer

    Hi mate,

    Please, make Valkyrie 444 TYPE-ZERO3 2.0 with anamorphic modification of the latest MJPEG 2k settings.

    Honestly, since I do not use MJPEG mode, I am not detailed about it.

    If the setting containing the MJPEG mode which you have used regularly is shown to me, I will combine it. :-)

  • @bkmcwd:

    Actually I combined it time ago - the 100Mbps anamorphic patch. But since there are newest best called settings for MJPEG mode, I'd like to see a patch which consists of those latest best MJPEG settings with anamorphic resolutions. It's easy to change the resolutions in PTool, but I think that some other parameters must be modified in accordance with the best normal MJPEG settings. That's my point.

  • @producer

    OK, I also study about MJPEG mode. :-)

  • Now, I am working on new "natural" setting. With this, spanning is possible in all the modes.

    In this week, I will release it. :-)
