Well... it looks like Canon has an SDK (software developers kits) for the XL2, that's pretty much ideal. I found a post by Joan Daniel that pointed me to a registration page on the Canon site to become a developer. Says they will e-mail me back after my applicaiton has been reviewed. Then we'll see how easy it is to build little utilities for the XL2.

Todd, it's great that you are looking into it.

The time-consuming task of exploring the permutations in settings is best automated. In the time it'd take to dial in a dozen different settings by hand, the computer could knock off a hundred if not more. After the program has run for a few hours or a few days you'd have a database of 1000's of settings. Studying how the settings evolve over this huge number of screencaps would be very useful, I think.

The very fact that Canon has an SDK means its possible to write custom software. Blue Barn must have used this kit to put together their presets utility. Now its one thing for an SDK to exist, its another for a programmer to be able to understand and work with it. If the SDK is Microsoft .Net compatible, I have have a chance of working with it. If not, then the learning curve might be to great for a causual investment of time to be enough to do anything with it. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what I have access to once Canon gets around to giving me access to the files.

I can imagine a program where all of the settings are listed and you can pick what settings are static and what settings are dynamic swinging through a range of values. Looking at the list of setting options, I'd approximate there are at least 13 * 13 * 13 * 13 * 4 * 2 * 13 * 13 * 13 * 13 * 13 * 2 * 13 * 13 * 13 * 13 * 5 = 24,230,008,527,380,240 combinations. Whoa! That's a lot possiblities.

Looking for that "gritty" look

Hey, has anyone tried to translate the 'Gritty (noisy, edgy, contrasty, vivid)' recipe for the XL2 from here: Panasonic Professional Video Products - Applications: Production

I think I have all the recipes for the XL2 that have been posted, but was looking for this one specifically.
If I missed it, please point me...

Thanks
Lee

Wow there has not been any posts in here since 2010. You know what would be awesome is if you posted a small sample video of your presets. Mike

Re: XL2 Settings Contest

Michael I'm not sure that any of these folks still have their XL's -- but you might get lucky.
