Fusion low quality video (but used to be great quality)

Hi guys, I have a Go Pro Fusion since last year and it always work great for me.

 

You can see this video for reference: 

https://youtu.be/wlfU6mo3tmA

I also made some other 360 videos and many 360 pictures with great quality.

 

I used to be happy ... until last week I went to capture new videos for my work and my content looks terrible.

Low quality, blured, not even similar to my previous experiences.

 

We use same operator for camera, same settings as usual but the result was pretty different as you can see:

https://youtu.be/m00ole9n1lc

 

When I captured this videos we select quality option: 3K at 60 fps

My firmware camera is: 1.8 version

I rendered using Fusion Studio 1.3 version on macbook pro with NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2 GB, Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB but content is horrible. I tried with all codecs and have same result.

 

My main concern is we capture videos for 3 days in order to create a beatiful video for a local University and now my content looks terrible in all cases and clips. I need to make those videos work or I will be fired :S

 

I really don't know what else can I do. 

I will apreciate your help.

 

Thank you.

Mauricio

Re: Fusion low quality video (but used to be great quality)

When I change the playback on YouTube to 1080p playback it looks about right to me (for some reason it defaulted to 480p). In your first video, did you also record in 3K/60fps?

5.2k/30fps (5.6k/24fps with the Beta Firmware) gives a viewing angle close to 1080p, while 3K is closer to 720p.

What editor are you using?
What were your Fusion Studio Export settings?
What were your timeline sequence settings?
What were your export settings in your editor?

Re: Fusion low quality video (but used to be great quality)

Hi @danielr15 

Thanks for your help.
 
Q: When I change the playback on YouTube to 1080p playback it looks about right to me (for some reason it defaulted to 480p). In your first video, did you also record in 3K/60fps?
Answer:
I can't be 100% sure because it was captured a few months ago for other guy but using same Fusion camera.
He provide configuration parameters as: "3K/60 fps". He said was it's standard for this kind of work.
YouTube load 480p version by default when it detects poor internet bandwidth.
Please check attached file with render configuration: "H.264 ; 3K ; Stereo ; On"

Q: 5.2k/30fps (5.6k/24fps with the Beta Firmware) gives a viewing angle close to 1080p, while 3K is closer to 720p.
Answer:
I read about it and it's great.
But my main concern it's try to export a similar quality content as my first video.
 
Q: What editor are you using?
What were your Fusion Studio Export settings?
Answer: Fusion Studio install a folder on /Images/GoPro Fusion/Rendered
All content went there.
 
Q: What were your timeline sequence settings?
What were your export settings in your editor?
Answer:
I download content from front and back SD cards to a windows PC.
Then I used Fusion Studio to load front and back content and it looks pretty nice in preview mode.
My quality video problem start when I rendered any clip on Fusion Studio and it deliver a low quality aspect.
So I never use an external editor.
 
Now I'm working on a Mac and I tried to rendered with all options with mostly the same poor quality results.
As an example, here is my content version rendered configuration using : "ProRes 422 ; 3K (3072x1536); Stereo ; On"
 
Or another example using : "CineForm ; 3K (3072x1536); Stereo ; On"
https://youtu.be/63SoMbItk64
 
 
I shared a Google Drive folder with front and back folders and files if somebody want to check from its original files, downloaded directly from SD cards:
 
I'm a newbie and I really apprecite any help to render my captured videos on great quality.
I need to save those videos because I can not record them again...
 
Thank you!!!

Re: Fusion low quality video (but used to be great quality)

So recording in 3K is pretty low quality for spherical video.  When you record in 3K @ 60fps, you're going to have a huge reduction in video quality as well as "not so great" performance in low light.  You should always record in the highest resolution possible, you can always reduce quality or image resolution in post afterwards if needs be.

 

IF both clips were recorded (old and more recent) in the same 3K format, I would just say that it appears the older clip is of higher quality as you were recording in a much smaller more confined space (interiour of car) under different lighting conditions.  I also tend to avoid encoding in anything other than cineform or prores simply because the h264 option in Fusion studio will only allow you to encode in 4K maximum (as opposed 5.2K or 5.6K).  

 

Most of your quality loss is where the stitch lines are it seems (very blocky) and once again, I would put this down to the lower 3K resolution.

Re: Fusion low quality video (but used to be great quality)

Thank you @irishmanpdx for your help.

 

I feel the same about first video.

It has to be recorded using better resolution than the last video with poor quality.

 

Any filters or post production ideas to minimize poor quality aspect on Samsung GearVR goggles?

 

Thanks!

Re: Fusion low quality video (but used to be great quality)

I'm afraid there's not much hope of improving the quality as the source file seems to be the issue.  Even if you were to introduce a soft focus and resample, this would only serve to degrade the video even further within a 360 degree sphere.  You will always want to record in the highest resolution possible, don't forget you will get compression artifacts and quality loss during encoding and again when youtube adds it's own compression.  Hence the need to have HQ source files.
