No stretching in AE necessary. MLP(dcraw actually) will unstretch your footage upon export.
Also check this workflow. Pretty much the same but simplified and stand alone.

Well welcome back @hughred22 and I was just about to say all you would need is Danne's latest cr2hdr.app to literally skip AE at all cost (but why would you?), if you will!  8)

Hi, thank for such a nice processer.

I have a question. So I am using it and my Mac is frozen at some point. So if I forced restart my mac, how can I resume from when I crashed? What is the workflow for that? My files are also in an external hard drive. Also, since the process take days, how can I pause and resume it if it I need to unplug my hard drive and go somewhere? Thanks!

What are you processing if I may ask. Unplugging in the middle is impossible I,m afraid. Are you processing HDR material?

hi all,

noob here - please forgive the lack of etiquette. I have ML on my camera and have shot some raw footage - lovely. Hats off to the devs. However, I am not a developer, nor a video workflow expert - I'm just a dude who wants to see what he filmed on the big screen of his computer, rather than on the teeny screen of his camera. I thought I had success with CR2HDR - which created .dng files without issue - it also apparently installed MLRawviewer, which seemed really cool, because I could view my MLV files! But then when I thought, hey, it would be cool to share this as a .mov for friends and family, I ended up down a rabbit hole - somehow I got to MLP and installed it and all the addons, but now when I right click an MLV file and choose MLP, it creates a tiff file and two dng's, then it deletes the dng's. no other output - nada.

What am I doing wrong, and is there an easy way to go from the MLV on my SD card to a .mov on my Mac?

Thx!

It may be helpful to tell us which software you are using to edit your non-RAW videos. And the OS version.

@johnnay - MLP is and can be quite complex for a first time user (but easy enough to follow through and get it figured out) meanwhile why don't you take a peak at @Danne's latest work in cr2hdr.app which has all the bells and whistles especially for the recent lossless compression.

As deafeyejedi points out I strongly suggest working with cr2hdr.app instead. It can export to mov files just as good as MLP.
FYI when you right click onto a file in MLP it creates a preview tiff. THe dng files are leftovers from this process and will be deleted once the tiff is created.

Thanks for the responses - I guess I got confused as to which was the later process - CR2HDR or MLP - I thought it was the latter, but using the CR2HDR app I can watch the output in MLRawviwer - still haven't managed to export to a quicktime .mov file tho.. I'll keep reading and ask a more specific question if I can't figure it out...!

Hi all,

My first post on this forum and a little out of desperation.  Have been trying to figure out how to use the MLP script for hours now and can't figure it out.

Basically what I want to do it blend together my dual ISO files from my canon 5D3 to make an HDR video.  I have read the user guide over and over and only get to the point where I can move the .txt files from one folder to the hold folder.  From there, I cannot work out how to do the next step to merge the high iso files with the low iso files.

I am total newb at this an really hoping someone can give me some quick guidance on this.

Much appreciated!

Aaron

Sorry, but you are mixing things up:
Dual ISO generates frames where alternating lines with different ISO settings are used in each single frame. This will preserve frame rate. Downside: Vertical resolution is diminished and you have to deal with aliasing.
HDR video option will generate alternating frames (normal/low exposure) thus output will not harm resolution but results in*half* the frame rate.

Thanks Walter.
Regarding processing dualiso files I suggest you jump to cr2hdr.app instead. It will automate the processing. Much more simplified.
