Some more tests with my new Panasonic HDC-TM300, now in bright sunshine. Also the first edit on a new computer with Intel Core i7 2.93 GHz. Approx. 8 times faster compared to the old Core 2 1.83 GHz using the same Avisynth/Virtualdub setup.
Camera set to 50i auto shutter/apperture most of the time. Deinterlaced with Kerneldeint module in Avisynth and stabilized with Deshaker in Virtualddub. Encoded to h264 with ffdshow codec. Sound simply reencoded to 5.1 AC3 with EncWAVtoAC3.
Video shot at Färjestaden in Gothenburg where the ferries used to cross the river Göta Älv before the large bridge was built in the sixties.
The first try to establish Gothenburg took place on a hill closeby around the year 1600 but all was destroyed during war as soon as in 1611. The place was abandoned and Gothenburg was built further up the river. Now the city has comed back with new buildings where there used to be large shipyards.
I'm quite pleased with video quality except some CMOS wobble that remains after the stabilization. I deinterlaced to 25 fps before running it in Deshaker. Maybe I should try the other way around so Deshaker has more motion info present in the rolling shutter compensation process...
...Almost forgot that I could not resist to portray the little spider who has faithfully guarded my garage against intruders for quite some time now. I used visit the garage at most ten times/year when I had my old car parked there. Whenever I opened it up the spider got really anxious (or angry, who knows...) and runned away far away from his net. The last 5 months I have parked my daily commuter car and open the garage port at least twice a day. Now the spider is not afraid at all and simply moves around a little in the net to check out who is coming when I come to fetch my car.
