Let me know what you think:

Note: I recorded over an hour of interview footage with ML raw to make this. I think my longest take was over 30 minutes. There weren't any glitches or pink frames to speak of!

30 minutes! That's insane.
Does the file get split up into pieces or do you get one huge file? And how large was the project if I may ask.

It was the first time I dared attempting to shoot interviews with ML raw. It didn't let me down! My longest clips were recorded as an MLV followed by a bunch of M00 files. I mounted it in Resolve with MLVFS and exported to ProResHQ to cut down on filesizes. I can't remember what those were, but an hour MLV footage (1080P, 23.978fps) comes to about 315GB. I had an hour of interview footage, and probably two hours of b-roll when all was said and done. So, close to 1TB before converting to ProResHQ.
