Re: New beta builds 2.0.1

Both GoPro Studio 2.0.1 and HDlink still throw up an error and don't convert Nikon D600 mov files in Windows.

HDlink will accept folders of Canon XF305 mxf files, but GoPro Studio doesn't even recognize the mxf files even when navigating to a single file's folder.

So no improvements for me, so far...

Ian

Re: New beta builds 2.0.1

Correct, no XMF in Studio (yet.) Have we broken Nikon D600 MOVs or was that always an unsupported format?

Re: New beta builds 2.0.1

Nikon D600 movs worked in HDLink in the last version but one, but there's a known issues note from Jake somewhere to say that they don't work in Windows in the current version (pre this beta).

Re: New beta builds 2.0.1

We don't consider displaying 23.976 as 23.98 a bug, it is a very common abbreviation. Also 23.976 is itself an abbreviation. 24000/1001 is the only true representation.

Re: New beta builds 2.0.1

By the way, I'd just like to say that it's really good to be involved in these betas a little bit again. Thanks, David.

Happy New Year to Cineform, GoPro and users

Indeed, 24000/1001 is the only true representation, however GoPro Cineform Studio incorrectly interprets any and all 23.976 footage at an exact frame rate value of 23.98000, effectively making 23.98 not a shortcut but an actual frame rate of the footage. All of the footage that is allowed to be interpreted by the GP studio Auto (keep source) footage settings will read in any app as a 23.9800 Even when the original video before Cineform conversion (including the GoPro Hero 3 footage is correctly read by the video editing apps (Premiere Pro, After Effects, and others) is read as a correct 23.9762.
It is also worth mentioning that HDLink does not suffer from this particular issue.
Practical implication is that the converted footage has different duration than the original (at least 1 frame difference for a 10 seconds clip making it difficult to conform in certain workflows) and the sound is out of sync (sound is about 0.010 seconds late in the beginning of the clip when compared to the original source, and about 0.002 by the time we get to 10 seconds.
Force selecting 23.976 in the conversion settings for the clip in GoPro studio is not a viable workaround. While it forces converted clips to be properly presented a 23.976 fps and preserves the correct length of the medias the sound shift still happens just as with misinterpreted 23.9800 conversions.

Yet again, none of this happens when using HDLink app.

Re: New beta builds 2.0.1

We are now seeing the 23.98 weirdness. Look at that now.

Ian, is this on Windows 8? To my knowledge mov conversion should work on Windows 7 but something in Windows 8 has caused this to stop working.

Windows 8 right? This should work in Windows 7.
