I just tried the new version. I'm new to it. Still don't know how to activate the command line controls  BUT.... grayscale previews on 3k 12bit vids. I imported a DNG sequence from the mounted drive straight into AE CC and output a MOV just fine if not a bit slower. Vertical Stripes were gone after selecting them in the interface. Huzzah! on this release.

Well, what comes to my mind first is: do you use 32 bit dokany/mlvfs on 64bit Win7? I compiled native x64 binary, so dokan must be x64 too. Install this package: https://github.com/dokan-dev/dokany/releases/download/v1.0.3/DokanSetup_redist.exe and then copy from C:\Program Files\Dokan\Dokan Library-1.0.3 to mlvfs dir 2 files: dokan1.dll and dokanfuse1.dll.

Thank you, working now! One more thing tho, http://localhost:8000/ is now an empty white page?
Also, in resolve this is happening..

Don't know about resolve issue but for correctly display settings web page you absolutly have to change dir (cd) to MLVFS folder when running it from the command line. Otherwise mlvfs can not find needed files to display page corectly. Also it can not find focus pixel maps.

@g3gg0:

i am happy to take over a cleaner one.
does your version support multi component compression?
Unfotunately, as I said in the first post encoder needs some work (correct component support). However MLVFS decodes it without problem along with hw encoded files.

I made a pull request with a small fix absolutely necessary to decode compressed files produced by mlv_dump in crop_rec_4k branch. The main header been overwritten at the end by /* fix frame count */ code, hence videoClass was wrong 0x01 istead of 0x21.

@g3gg0: Thank you for merging it so fast :). LZMA flag needs attention, correct, almost forgot about it.

I am interested in trying out MLVFS, I understand it works for Windows now aswell?

Can someone point me to a thread on setting it up ?

I run Win 8.1.

once you go raw you never go back

I didn't get this new version working on win 10 though...
I get instant "this program stopped working" when executing mlvfs.exe.

Let me know if you have any luck on win 8

I have it working on Windows 10, just got it up tonight. I had to install the x64 installer and it was good to go. Thank you everyone!!!

EDIT: The only bug I'm noticing is I cant close MLVFS unless I go into the task manager and end task. My raw files come out really cool/blue. Other than that everything looks great.

Use 'dokanctl.exe' to unmount the drive correctly: dokanctl.exe /u Z (or whatever drive you use)

Here it's location (x64 ver) and usage:
Code: [Select]
C:\Program Files\Dokan\Dokan Library-1.0.0>dokanctl.exe
Driver path: 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\dokan1.sys'
dokanctl /u MountPoint (/f)
dokanctl /m
dokanctl /i [d||n]
dokanctl /r [d||n]
dokanctl /v

Example:
  /u M                : Unmount M: drive
  /u C:\mount\dokan : Unmount mount point C:\mount\dokan
  /u 1                : Unmount mount point 1
  /u M /f             : Force unmount M: drive
  /i d                : Install driver
  /i n                : Install network provider
  /r d                : Remove driver
  /r n                : Remove network provider
  /d [0-9]            : Enable Kernel Debug output
  /v                  : Print Dokan version

My raw files come out really cool/blue. Other than that everything looks great.
Let me guess - you used auto or aperture/shutter priority exposure mode.

Thank you for the instruction on unmounting the drive. I did not use any auto exposure mode, it was manual at f4, iso 200 1/60th but I believe I was on auto WB.

I just keep getting mlvfs stopped working when i try to test this new verison of mlvfs.
I installed the newer Dokany 1.0.3 and I'm using the mlvfs.exe from the link in this thread. (https://bitbucket.org/bouncyball/mlvfs/downloads/?tab=downloads)
I had standard mlvfs that worked previous to trying this build. And I uninstalled the older version of Dokany before trying out the new version.
Avast and windows defender went bananas when I first tried to execute it but since then I added exceptions for that library.
In the old version of mlvfs there were a bunch of other files besides the mlvfs.exe in the same folder so I also tried to add these to the new versions location but got the same stopped working error.

After installing this version of MLVFS on a win 10 computer at home without Avast (firewall/antivirus prog.) I got it working without problems. So somehow the initial crash that occurred when Avast virus search kicked in have permanently made mlvfs.exe crash on that computer.
I tried adding exceptions for mlvfs in both Avast and windows defender,  even uninstalling Avast, Reg edit cleaning tools, re-downloaded and reinstalled mlvfs √§nd dokany. Nothing has worked so far.
Also recreated the same problem on a win7 computer that's also using avast.  After mlvfs crashes do to Avast virus check It keeps crashing every time you try to start it after that.

Does anyone have any Idea how one crash can make that file crash forever on that system even though you reinstall dokany and download the mlvfs-file once again?

Yes I also experienced this with Nod32. MLVFS crashed all the time randomly. Stopping only file monitoring service helped but not fully. After uninstalling antivirus _entirely_ issue has gone away. Well that kind of protection software hooks all file IO (and not only IO) under its control so there is no surprise that MLVFS, also very intense on file system multi threaded IO, does not like this.

My rule is: when using MLVFS - antivirus is an enemy :). Under Windows it definitely causes performance/crashing issues.
