GH4 10-bit 4:4:4 1080 video...! ;-)

  1. So, it really *IS* possible to shoot 1080p 10-bit 4:4:4
    video with the GH4 (by shooting it in 4K and processing
    that down to 1080...): And,
    here's how to do it without the "brick" on the bottom:

    Kinda nifty, at least for you "mac-heads"!8^) BTW, I
    just got a copy of proDAD ReSpeedr, and it looks like
    it can do some nifty things (uh, if the original footage
    is shot with care for what it can't do well...;-).

    I wonder if the software would work on other 4K video recording devices.

    Nicely shot video at the link in this post very sharp focus. The music
    helps to create the mode for the video.
    The only mystery is why the inside of the train (or whatever it is) has an
    orange cast over the picture at the start then seems to have a normal white
    balance when the light increases.

  3. I tried some 4K footage shot with the Samsung Note 3 (which,
    BTW, looks VERY sharp at 1080, if the 'phone is not moved
    too fast), but I got poor results with ReSpeedr (jerky,
    uneven playback - which may have been a problem with the
    players, and I need to check it in Vegas and on a newer
    player). Also, even with the video-card GPU enabled (if
    mine works with this software...?), rendering at highest
    quality for a very short clip was VERY, VERY, ***V-E-R-Y***
    S - L - O - W ! ! ! (As in, it would take EONS to render
    a half-hour of video at this rate!!!)

    I liked your comment about the Note 3 looking very sharp at 1080.
    I have not had much time to do much photo and video recording with it as
    I'm busy packing at the moment.
    Maybe the results are better when moving the Note 3 at a higher frame rate.

    Maybe they needs to sell dedicated hard wired video compiler for rendering
    4K video just like a Digital Video Recorder.
    It takes 1 minute to finalise a video with DVR. The rendering must be in
    real time as it receives the video. it takes 15 minutes to copy a 2 Hour SP
    video to a DVD, i can cut bits out anywhere in the video, join together
    two different video clips, add chapter marks and it does not seem to need
    to re-render the video.
