HI folks, gee long time since I have been on here. :-)

Looks like lots of old threads gone but good to see a few familiar names still here.

 

Anyway the GH5 had me intrigued so I downloaded the clips I found in this thread to play around with.

Placed  them in a 10bit 1920/1080 EDIUS 8 Workgroup time line and applied its primary CC  filter to them, wow you can really push them.

The 3840/2160 138mbps 10 bit (29 and 24 frame files) could be played but i did have to drop the preview window res down.

I also slowed down the 29 and 24 frame files by 50% using the EDIUS Optical flow.

 

Then I rendered out a 1920/1080 35mbps H.264 file which was fast as EDIUS uses the H.264 encoder on the Intel chip.

I use the resample method Lanczos 3 for the down conversion to 1920/1080.

All this on a old Windows 7 i7-3.50 gig system with16gig ram.

 

Anyhow, the quality of the Gh5 is very good, now you got me thinking of a new underwater setup :-)

File I made is here if you want to download it.

Yeh, not many of us around mate:-)

It's been a long time indeed.

 

Must be time I got back into the water.

The quality of the GH5 looks awesome and be good for traveling.

 

Setting up a normal video camera in a housing it's just way over the top now days.

 

Been using EDIUS everyday for years now shooting realestate vids, never misses a beat.

I agree from my trials with the GH5 that manual WB works really well when shooting ambient light. Clips to follow....


How’s the clips coming? Still very interested in this.
