  1. Isn't Color Chrome for images only? I don't see how I could enable that for video on my X-T3. My feeling is that the processing is there to hide something, not to enable something.
  2. @tupp nice analysis, I really have to take a look at Darktable again sometime 🙂
  3. Not at all! Do you plan to include info from the Petapixel article as well, or link that article? With the information there my video makes more sense.
  4. Great... I'd rather have an OLPF and slightly less overall resolution than slightly more luma and noticeably less chroma. Or at least they could allow us to modify/switch off the chroma NR.
  5. Unfortunately I won't have the time to test this anytime soon, and I'm not sure it's worth it. The Petapixel artice is absolutely correct about the interpolation issues of the X-Trans pattern, technically there is more guesswork there, and the camera won't have the processing power for a sophisticated demosaicing algo. It's pretty slow even on PC. So I'm sure that the in-camera demosaicing leaves some color artifacts that Fujifilm chose to hide with chroma NR, but they might have gone overkill with that. And I'm surprised that I don't see an improvement on the GFX bodies.
  6. I have access to an X-T3, EOS R, and 5D3. The GFX samples I found online. Did you mean to test with the X-T3?
  7. A last sample, this is from the GFX100s, 4K, 400Mbps, 8bit H.264. It's not F-Log, possibly Provia, so it's chroma channels are supposed to be slightly better compared to F-Log: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1F4W_DYYkYlQIV49lakIGuz1L4xnB3oNm/view?usp=sharing From top to bottom: Original, Cb (with added contrast), Cr (with added contrast) I post this because there are some trees in the background. The theory about this being an X-Trans only issue sounds fine, I might even believe it, but then all the clips that I found from GFX bodies so far tell a different story.
  8. If it's the X-Trans CFA, what's the explanation for the GFX results I posted earlier?
  9. I used ffmpeg first to extract the chroma channels into grayscale videos and I used that to validate the results of my plugin. They were identical so it's safe to say that it's not an NLE/GPU decoder issue.
  10. Another samples, this time from the GFX100, keep in mind that this is 8bit: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1fyCiDFhbkskhjxz2miFgLXn523uP80ns/view?usp=sharing Sequence is the same as before: original, Y, Cb (with added contrast), Cr (with added contrast) This might be the worst I've seen so far.
  11. I don't know guys... just found two GFX100s F-Log clips here (200Mbps 10bit HEVC): https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1UpKhgQpv8D6pEICjEBvLuAaSTSEvQaHX And here is the result (download please): https://drive.google.com/file/d/1vjFxXTTaqftD8E8GN1vrT5ZTPkaUb6Nq/view?usp=sharing The sequence is the following: original, Y, Cb (with added contrast), Cr (with added contrast) Would be nice to see something more colorful, but I already don't know how this is any better from what we have seen from the X-T3 so far.
  12. Alright, we agree then 🙂 Now I would LOVE to see an F-Log sample coming from a GFX body.
  13. But this proves my point. It's the chroma NR. The reason they apply it might be related to X-Trans but that's all, X-Trans alone won't cause what you see in my video. Easy to prove, I might do it later when I get home.
  14. I believe this has nothing to do with demosaicing, all the color information that's missing from the videos/jpegs are there in the x-trans raw files. I can show it tomorrow if necessary. Edit: looking at Django's comment it's necessary 🙂
  15. People like to mention smooth skin tones when it comes to Fuji JPEGs. I prefer to have all the details and do my own smoothing, but for many people this phenomenon is actually a plus 🙂 I was searching online a lot after I discovered this, I couldn't believe that no one is talking about this. I think I only found one old topic from dpreview where someone mentioned chroma smoothing happening in Fuji JPEGs, but I can't find it now. So we are quite alone here 😄
  16. Even if they blur the crap out of it, they do it in a smart way, I'm not sure if it's visible in the video but the houses and vehicles have good chroma details in the Fuji, it's the foliage that suffers a lot, where you're not expecting too much color difference.
  17. Thanks! Double checked my files, it's hard to say. The EOS R has way more noise in the chroma channels, it looks like something that you'd expect from a log recording, whereas the Fuji is unnaturally noise free. Can extreme compression have this effect? I'm not sure about that. Also, why would they assign sooo low bitrate from the 400Mbps to the chroma channels? It doesn't make any sense as above 100 it's hard to notice the difference even in luma, and as I have shown in the video, you can have nice luma+chroma even with 100Mbps.
  18. This is not a demosaicing problem, it seems like some sort of temporal noise reduction applied to the chroma channels, as the first frame was always worse. I skipped the first few frames in each clip because of that. H.264 and H.265 didn't make a difference. Long-GOP was marginally better in some situations, but generally it's just as bad as All-I.
  19. There must be some clever algorithm behind this as it seems to have proper 1080p resolution around well defined edges, but everywhere else it's clearly less than that.
  20. I found something strange when I was looking at the chromaticity channels of Fujifilm video files and did some search online, and to my surprise noone is talking about this, so I decided to make a video about it. If you're a Fuji user, you might be interested.
  21. From Newsshooter: "Canon has a new AC adapter for the R5 C as well as a compact power adapter and a DC coupler that features a dummy battery at one end. While Canon hasn’t stated that you will be able to shoot 8K 50/60p with a V-lock battery, etc. I think it is safe to assume that you could by attaching the DC coupler to another battery source." So it won't be powered via USB-C, but you can probably find a solution to power it with an external battery.
  22. Hello, This is the official topic for all Colorizer products. My main focus is bringing high-precision Fujifilm Film Simulation LUTs to multiple cameras. The following formats are supported at the moment, click the links for videos and details: Fujifilm X-T3/X-T4 F-Log Sony S-Log2/S-Gamut3.cine Panasonic V-Log L & HLG I also sell ACES IDTs for cameras that are not natively supported by Davinci Resolve: - Fujifilm F-Log/F-Gamut - Nikon N-Log/BT.2020 - Sony S-Log2/S-Gamut3.cine - Z Cam ZLog2 - GoPro Protune These packs include a lot of 3D LUTs simulating the ACES Rec.709 look, so it can be valuable for Premiere users as well. I also have Technical fixes for common color shift issues caused by bad interpretation of certain clips in Premiere. I strongly suggest you check this out if you're a Fujifilm user. As a bonus I created a bunch of free online tools for creating and modifying 3D LUTs, so if you're into this kind of stuff, visit http://colorizer.net. Thank you for your attention, Attila
  23. It's an old i7-3770. One of the reasons I use Matlab is that many of it's commands are internally multi-threaded, it saves me a lot of time, especially with this old machine.
  24. Yeah, it's pretty far from being accurate. I wonder how they do their conversions on the fly, and what precision they use. When I build my camera matching LUTs it takes 1-2 minutes with all cores used to the maximum to build a size 65 LUT, they do it in a second or so.
