30P hack on GH2?

I understand that video in the GH2 comes off the sensor at 60p and is converted to 60i in the camera. Has anyone heard of a hack coming that will allow for 30p output - or even better 60p?

Re: 30P hack on GH2?

If you already record sound dual-system, you can record 1080p24 at 80% speed and then conform to 30p via cinema tools or the like.

Other than that, the hacks are in the works....

"conform via cinema tools"

Can you elaborate? What other methods are there? CS5?

Re: 30P hack on GH2?

When you conform to a different frame rate in Cinema Tools all it does is change some bits in the file header. It therefore happens pretty much instantaneously. I don't know what is available on Windows to do this but am sure here must be a variety of applications as it is fundamentally such a simple process.

Just speed up by 125% as 24fps * 1.25 = 30 fps.

I did sound test here:

I found this link.. the fellow who created the GH1 hack is currently working on a hack for the GH2 and seems to be making progress:
