240 Frames Per second Matthew Gorveatte HD Footage

Ben Lee Kelowna BC 240 Frames Per second Some Footage I shot yesterday, It turned out really good. You will be seeing alot more sweeter stuff now that I got better equipment, and go into the sunshine more often. Some ppl are wondering what it was shot on this is with the new, Sony HDR-XR500V 1920 X 1080 Full HD Recording, 120GB Internal Memory Matthew Gorveatte

 really nice, Vod...

 oh dear freebord, the camera shoots at 240. If you have a normal camera that shoots, say 24 (uk t.v.) or 30 (us t.v.) fps then it won't be able to play back this slowly. only the camera affects an increase in frame rate than that of normal!
  • + 18
 you hacked your camera to shoot at 240?
  • + 10
 nope shoots 240 right to timeline
  • + 5
 When I plug the camera into the computer, it comes up slow, I dont have to push any buttons to make it slow. No hacking yet. I am trying. it has not worked yet; I think I need to put the new data on a mem stick pro duo and transfer the new setup of the camera that way
  • + 3
 so your capturing at 240 to your comp.. but the camera doesnt shoot at 240.. correct?
  • + 4
 does the new one still only shoot slowmo for 3 seconds?
  • + 9
 yes it only does it for 3 seconds so I have to make sure I am sniper with my filming
  • + 3
 aha yaa i got the same sorta deal
  • + 19
 both of you are correct, freebord007: what happens is for that short amount of time it will record 240fps into it's buffer/instant memory, then when it's done after the 3 seconds, it lays it down in the on the HDD or HDV tape it records to in a slower frame rate (30fps = 60i, in this case, it would be 30p) so you are able to play it back (which will be in slowmo). It cannot play it back in it's original 240fps because the NTSC (or PAL 50i) system clocks at 60i (60i will hold 30p and 24p+2332pulldown insertion).

When loaded into your program, it will load it in 30p (or 24p, I don't know that camera), which means that 3 second clip is actually 10 seconds or something. From there (in the program) you can do what ever you want with it. If you do the math correctly: 240fps gives you perfect 24p (10% speed) and 30p (12.5% speed) without blending pixels, just make sure you're in the right settings. When I shoot 60i (HDV) for slowmo I jack up the shutter speed first, then in my program I extract the "60 frames" and apply 40% speed to that = 24fps).

Other note: in digital video 30p=29.970p 60i=29.970i 24p=23.976p, PAL does not have this dropframe issues thingy

anyone correct me if I'm wrong

And that was some cool looking footy, especially the nutts-to-toptube move.

 sick videoing
  • + 1
 This was a horrible video. Go ahead, neg me, flame me, whatever!

Over half the tricks were cut off before landing which means they weren't pulled. Nothing irritates me more in a video than doing that. At least show the full crash, then, you at least got something. A crash video is still better than a video that only makes it appear to be "good riding".

The whole thing was in slow motion, and had horrible horrible music.
  • + 10
 youve got a point, but i dont think he was trying to make a proper edit he was just testing out his new camera,i have a similar one and the slowmo is addictive, and i thought the music was fine....
  • - 10
 ok, this is my opinion., the riding wasnt that great, just most people will come under the false illusion that this isa good video as it is shot in slow motioan and the genre of music suits characteristics of that sort. the music was also horrible and i dont think the vid should be VOD at all....neg away!
  • + 17
 rattabones you must hate teasers then, they cut off pretty much every shot

 That was sooo smooth I didn't know that you were doing 12 frames per second untill I read the coments. Very nice!! so Vod..
  • + 12
 KonaKane, this obviously wasn't a teaser. There was nothing in this video that would make me want to go purchase a DvD.

 oh yeh sick vid mate
  • + 4
 He was just figuring out the camera and it only shoots 3 second clips at the slow - mo speed.
rattbones = douche bag.
  • + 17
 I could care less what he was doing, or why. You're calling me a douche bag when you don't even know how to count? You obviously have no idea what a douche bag is. If you want to call me a name, that's fine. Just choose one that actually pertains to the situation. The irony here is that you're comment to me does in fact make YOU a douche bag.

The camera does shoot more than 3 second clips, that's completely obvious to anyone if they in fact did watch the video. I'm guessing you didn't, or just never passed first grade math.

I bet you confused paint chips for frosted flakes growing up.
  • + 4
 it looks so chill and relaxed, i love it nice vod.
  • + 2
 Nato........... You just got burned hard! rattbones........You always make me laugh, and you always have a great point of view on things. Pinkbike needs more users like that. You never call anyone names, but set things into perspective in a very witty way. you make very good points while making me laugh and turning the morons inside out. I LOVE IT! Nato never ate frosted flakes, he grew up under power lines!
  • + 0
 Yeah, I never said anything about the video quality or the purpose behind it.
Rather just what the video is. It's cool he got new equipment and all, that just means better things are to come. I must beg the question though.... Why is this a VOD? Kind of my whole point. There was nothing in this video to make it worthy of any kind of spotlight or extra attention other than it is in high def and slow motion. so again, I want to put out that the VOD's must be randomly generated.
  • + 7
 hey rattbones, just so ya know the camera does not record more than 3 second clips when in slow mo mode. what your seeing is a 3 second 240fps clip translated into 12 seconds of 30fps. I have the camera i know what im talking about. Perhaps do some research before u post about stuff u know nothing about. i agree that this shouldnt get vod but who cares if it did, the world is guna keep on turning.
  • + 4
 That's not what he's talking about dumbass!, and I'm sure he could care less what the camera is and can do. If you watch the video each clip is clearly longer than 3 seconds. The only way you will get a longer clip out of a shorter one is by slowing it down. You can slow 3 seconds into 12 no problem, but for it to run smooth you need to capture more frames per second. This eats up a ton of memory. This is the case for ANY high speed camera. Just for shits and giggles I went and looked it up. Took two mins to do.

Seriously, you got rocks in your head or something? rattbones never said anything in relation to what you are talking about. Your just making an attempt to put words in the guy's mouth he didn't say. People like you should just go somewhere and die!
  • + 5
 Wow man, you guys need to chill out. I didn't like the video, and I stated why. Is it some kind of rule on pinkbike that I have to like everything that's set in front of me? It seems like that's the case. Some of you guys just take things too personally. I went and reread a lot of this, and the level of ignorance is just running real high on this site today.
  • + 5
 What's wrong with paint chips?

rattbones, this is one of those things where you cannot win no matter how correct your statements are (even though there could have been a nicer way to say it from the start). At this point, the best thing to do is to walk away.

And thanks to those who gave me "+ props" on my above comment concerning the camera works. The slowmotion feature on the camera is cool, but limiting. Note: never abuse slowmotion when making a bike video, I use it VERY little.
  • - 1
 Your right, this isn't a contest. On the same note, I wasn't trying to "win" as you so eloquently put it. However, you admit I'm right, and I was very nice from the start. It's only after people start throwing their two cents in that's only worth a penny that things become ugly.

But hey, if you chomp on paint chips....who am I to stop you.
Like some of the above comments, some things are just better left unsaid to the rest of the world.

 Why? You interested or something? What you do in your own time is your own business. A public forum such as this isn't the place for you to be making a pass at other males jeremy. Just because you like boys doesn't mean you need to be sharing it with the rest of the community.

 That music made me want to scratch my eyes out and shoot myself in the head over and over and over again.
  • + 3
 i will just clear this up i have the same camera, it record 3 seconds of 240 fps footage then slows it down into 12 second slo mo clips that is why some tricks look cut off, because it is only recording for 3 secs. so you dont have enough time to get it all in
  • + 7
 roflroflroflrofl streetdude is gay! aahahahahahahahahaha

 If I'm the one that's gay, then why are you the one assuming I'm gay, and then making passes at me on the internet.

You silly f*got, Don't you know that dicks are for chicks?
Not my fault you're a cock docking queer who's only outlet for sexual frustration and lust for men is to accuse everyone else of being something that you are.

  • + 2
 You said you were trying to hack the camera? The only think I could think of is you have to some how upgrade it's buffer memory size or 'instant' memory card because when it's recording that much data at such high speed the SD card or harddrive you normally record onto doesn't have the data transfer rate to handle 240fps, it's only designed for 1920x1080 at 60i or 30p. Seems like a hardware and not a software issue.

 AWSOME! i can shoot 120 fps on my lgviewty...old cam phone...reaal cool, but its only 600x800 video:/ and sometimes its dark indoors . this inspired me, imgona make a vid like this. obviously nowhere near the grade of quality of this. defo VOD quiality

 Great video, awesome tricks but... are no helmets needed to get VOD? I always though that VOD should make me go riding - and that one for sure does it, but it also have to promote riding safely. So guy, I really appreciate your skills, but helmets aren't so expensive this days, are they?
