Magic Lantern with EOS Utility
« on: August 04, 2017, 01:29:17 PM »
Hi All

I have noticed that when I have ML installed that I cannot get a live view through my EOS Utility software when clicking on Live View Shoot.
Am I doing something wrong?

Unable to reproduce your error with 650D and 7D in EOS Utility v2.

Please give more details about your equipment and software used. Does LV in EOS Utility work without ML loaded?

Thanks so much for replying.
Yeah LV works fine in EOS Utility when ML isn't installed.
I have EOS Utility 2, EOS 7D connected via the data cable. With ML (March 12 2017 build) installed.
DO you think that maybe there is a ML setting that could be causing it? Something maybe I could change?
When I launch EOS Utility I get the "Press Start/Stop button to actiavte movie shooting" come up on the back of the 7D, which I press. I then click on Live View Shoot in EOS Utility and I get no preview window.
I have just noticed if I disable MLV_Rec in ML it works fine. That's really annoying. I wonder if that means I won't be able to use DLSR Controller on an Android device either :(

Any thoughts?

Well, there is a bug.
650D works with MLV_REC.mo + EOS Utility.
7D does not. I have to lookup in Bitbucket if this is a known issue before creating a new bug report.

Just tested with latest nightly build (01.Aug.2017)

EDIT: Created bug report https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/issues/2761/7d-liveview-in-eos-utility-not-working
