GH1 firmware research volunteers required

Test for fun :bath:

MjPEG 30fps - Xfps - input 120
MJPEG 848p width - input 640
MJPEG 848p height - input 480

1280p mode:

Duration : 500ms
Bit rate : 103 Mbps
Width : 1 280 pixels
Height : 720 pixels
Display aspect ratio : 16:9
Frame rate : 120.000 fps
Bits/(Pixel*Frame) : 0.929

Working well but stop recording after 0.5 sec. :violent5:

848p mode:

Duration : 2s 500ms
Bit rate : 45.6 Mbps
Width : 640 pixels
Height : 480 pixels
Display aspect ratio : 4:3
Frame rate mode : Constant
Frame rate : 120.000 fps
Bits/(Pixel*Frame) : 1.238

Working well but stop recording after 2.5 sec. :happy:

1fps - Can't working

Camera freezing when i want to stop recording, maybe I not patient :) but two minutes too long time for me. :Drogar-Happy(DBG):

5fps must work in this case :)
Anyway it is not too important.
Compare 60fps and 30fps 1280 footage.
See if motion is actually shot at 60fps.
This is priority task.
 
MJPEG - 60fps

Quality settings (E1 to E4) - 352, 220, 200, 184
Table settings (E1 to E4) - 24, 24, 24, 24

Motion is actually 60fps. Stops recording at 3 seconds. I use class 4 card. I saw NURBS was able to record 6 seconds of 60fps. Perhaps he is using a card with faster write speed.
 
Very interesting thing.

848p mode:

MJPEG 848p width - input 848
MJPEG 848p height - input 320

The Picture little squeezed :)

Very interestin thing too:

MJPEG mode let do change resolution ;-)

Duration : 10s 80ms
Bit rate mode : Variable
Bit rate : 28.9 Mbps
Width : 2 048 pixels
Height : 854 pixels
Display aspect ratio : 2.35:1
Frame rate mode : Constant
Frame rate : 25.000 fps
Bits/(Pixel*Frame) : 0.661

Like 2K SUPER 35 / SUPER TECHNISCOPE :bath:

But have some problem ;-)

I like what I am seeing from

MJPEG fps tesing - 24fps
Quality settings (E1 to E4) - 352, 220, 200, 184
Table settings (E1 to E4) - 24, 24, 24, 24


However, I would like someone to download the footage and test it to confirm.



NURBS,

I was going to do the aspect ratio test next, but you keep at it and let us know. Great work testing!!
 
Hi people, I tried something.

MjPEG 30fps - Xfps - input 60
MJPEG 848p width - input 1280
MJPEG 848p height - input 544

For the MJPEG quality; I doubled every value and for the table I wrote 24 on the four.

848p mode:

Duration : 8s 0ms
Bit rate : 21 Mbps
Width : 1280 pixels
Height : 544 pixels
Frame rate : 60.000 fps

Everything was ok execpt this;

http://old.akwd.com/video/P1160986.MOV
(for fast people, please let it load)

(also I used QT for the info, if you need something more specific I will load it, but I'm a mac user)


DID SOME OTHER TEST, IT IS JUST SQUEEZED, I DOESNT NOT REALLY SHOOT ANAMORPHIC OR ANYTHING.

True 60 fps

True 60 fps

Definitely on to something, here. Looks to me like the real deal. Only camera stops recording in less than 3 secs. For my purposes 1080p24 in either format, 720p60 in MJPEG (well 1080 would be nice here too!) would be golden. I shoot fast action most of the time, with pans when necessary to follow the athletes and AVCHD just doesn't hold up there. Now if we can just find quality/table settings that optimize without premature cessation we'd be golden!

Uploaded orig files and rendered slomo here:

http://rapidshare.com/files/395591141/MJPEG_60.zip.html

Only 10 downloads available according to Rapidshare so better get on it if it's important to you! I'll try and upload elsewhere, too.
 
I've tried:

MjPEG 30fps - Xfps - input 25
MJPEG 1280p width - input 1920
MJPEG 1280p height - input 1080
MJPEG 1280p Encoder width - input 2096
MJPEG 1280p Encoder buffer - input 4821120
MJPEG 848p width - input 1280
MJPEG 848p height - input 720

and when I stoped recording the camera froze and asked me to turn it off then on again. after this, it rendered an useless MOV file.

I tried with a SanDisk Class 2 Ultra II and with a Class 6 Patriot both had the same problem and I was recording for about a minute.

Any ideas?

You are wrong here. You got slomo from 30p to 24p.
As I said 60p doesn't work.
Try to shoot same scene with Avchd 720 60fps and you'll see the difference.

but my timeline/clip duration went from 7 sec to 18, roughly... 2.5x consistent with math on 60p -> 24p. What am I missing?
 
I believe jobless is correct. I think what's happening here is the time scale is wrong

The clips you uploaded are actually 30fps and 6 seconds long, not 3 seconds long. The only thing that is changed is the clip header for FPS field

So although there are 180 unique frames per clip, it should be over 6 seconds = 30FPS . When the header says 60FPS , your media player/software is instructed to playback at 60FPS, that's why it looks "sped up"

It wasn't as clear in the example with the kid, because that video was just bobbing motion. It's more clear in your dog example.
 
Scaling

Scaling

The ability to scale footage resolution is very interesting. Like tester13 said, being able to upscale before encoding is nice stepup for certain purposes... although note your also squeezing a higher resolution into the same available bitrate... so it's give and take.

Most should realize at this point the scaling function applied toward aspect ratio changes seems of limited use.. because all it is is scaling.. not cropping or letting you use more sensor or anything like that. Possible legit uses however would be to pre-encode-stretch out footage if your actually using an anamorphic adapter... also the 1440x1080 might have some use if you plan on mixing the footage in a mainly HDV workflow/timeline, as it would save time and some NLEs don't scale well by default.. That's assuming the GH1 scales decently... I haven't analyzed the test footage that well.
