Is mlv_lite the exact same thing as the old raw_rec?
« on: February 25, 2017, 01:53:13 AM »
Hi,

I've always been using Magic Lantern on my Canon 5D Mark II. Recently I figured my Nightly build was heavily outdated (2014) so I just downloaded and installed the latest one. I've alway used raw_rec, but that option is nowhere to be found anymore. Only things I can find are mlv_rec and mlv_lite.

Is mlv_lite the exact same thing as the old raw_rec? And what are the differences in quality when it comes to mlv_lite vs. mlv_rec?

EDIT: I'm also getting MLV files, instead of RAW files, which tells me that there's something significantly different. Can anyone clarify?

Thanks.

Sorry, my English is really bad. And from that post, I can't really make up what's new, and what the EXACT differences are between RAW_REC and MLV_LITE.

Perhaps you could explain it to me?


Thank you

I'm not sure of a way I can phrase this any better

There should be virtually no difference between the way this raw_rec operates and the one in the current nightlies with the sole exception that you will get MLV files out of it. You should see almost identical performance and behavior.
