Using MLVFS on Win7 in Resolve 12.5 free with 5D3 10bit footage and there are vertical Stripes in the MIDS with the fix checked.

Do I just have to live with this or am I missing something?

I experience the same thing, cant get rid of the vertical stripes with MLVFS.. even with the fix on. its too bad because it makes the fastest workflow less usable.

Here you go, if you watch the out of focus mids throughout the video you will see them. It's not BAD, it's just there.

Im bad at shortening MLV files, so here is a DNG:

Yours is very mild! But yes it is there still ever so slightly. Mine is more moderate, I'm thinking maybe it's worse with 10bit than 12bit. Shot 12bit lossless and will review those shortly.

Yes, the example was not the best. But, I experience it a lot of the time with my 10-bit footage (uncompressed)

Did a quick un-scientific test of the same scene in 10-, 12- and 14-bit 1080p.
Only 10-bit shows the horizontal stripes, so the best workaround when using MLVFS seems to be shooting in 12-bit!

10-bit:

12-bit:

Problem solved! Easy workaround, thank you!

Hey guys,

I got the same problem of  these vertical lines who appears only when Recording Raw in 1600x536 for 50 fps

I'm using MLV Producer to convert my MLV files, and those vertical lines still appears after converting in DNG images and in ProRes too.
Even with "Remove Vertical Stripes" seclected... (in 1080p Raw I don't get the vertical lines after converting)
Don't know how to do to remove them, because MLVProducer is the best converter I have found yet,
if you have better suggestions please tell me, (I already tried Mystic, raw2cdng, Mlrawviewer)
thanks in advance!

Last question,
I've installed the latest version of ML with 10 and 12 bits colors featured, but can't find how to change the color settings to 12 or 10 Bits,
where is that option?

Magic lantern Menu > Movie > RAW video > (press Q and scroll down to..) Data Format >  (press set)12-bit or 12-bit lossless

It seems that 10bit causes vertical lines so avoid that and you're good. Basically 12-bit lossless is your best option it would seem. I haven't personally ran the tests but others indicate this is the case because 10bit won't pull shadows up without introducing noise and 14bit is no noticeable improvement from 12.
