RawFlow - open source batch process tool for MLV on Windows
« on: September 18, 2014, 09:14:05 AM »
In my last trip to Utah I shot about 300 raw video clips with my 5D and when I got back home, I found there's no easy way to batch process so many MLV files.

So I spent a few hours to build this tool and I named it "RawFlow". The purpose is to free us from manually running the basic processing workflow for a large amount of MLV files.
And I'm making it open source so that people can contribute and make it more powerful.

To download, please visit:
https://github.com/kunchenguid/rawflow/releases

The usage is pretty simple - just drag and drop your MLV files onto RawFlow.exe and it will just start working. A sub directory will be created for each MLV file in the same parent folder (this can be configured), DNG and WAV files will be extracted and put into the sub directory, and a small proxy video file would be generated there also.

Running the tool requires Microsoft .Net Framework v4.5. Download from Microsoft: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42642

To contribute or get access to the source code, please visit:

Hope this is helpful.

Gonna give it a try later today

Need a good tool to make super light proxies

Rawanizer had this. But seemed to only work on occasions and its only raw
once you go raw you never go back

This is awesome! Is there any way to make it so it doesn't create proxy videos? Even on my overclocked 3930k it takes a long time to create the Tiff's and make the proxy video.

I took a quick look at the source code and commented out the parts for the tiffs/proxy video

Until I get a chance to do a better job of customizing this open source program, this download will allow you to run RawFlow without generating proxy videos, and saving a lot of time if you are only interested in the DNGs.

Very handy program!Thank you very much! But you could add it remove pink dots for Canon 650d.

Thanks for the feedbacks!! I have heard a lot of requests about this so I created a new release that disables proxy video generation by default and added a configuration setting for people who want it.

Thanks a lot CF for making the workaround. I just created a new release that made this configurable. Feel free to send me pull requests on github if you want any changes incorporated.

Thanks man. I'm not very familiar with the pink dots issue but will look into it when I got a chance.

It looks like RawFlow is using dcraw so it should be easy to implement the same "badpixel" method like in Danne's MLP workflow. I have mapped the focus pixels on 1280x720 cropped video for EOSM. That should also work for @Dionisgr on the 650D.

By the way, I started a topic about focus pixels that you might find interesting.

HI

I tried to install the program on my WIN 10 system PC but it crashes everytime I try to run it. It states it cannot find the log4net file but it is in the folder where the application was extracted. Help.

Please make frame names to contain original name of MLV, not "frame"
It makes more sense if you shoot 30 videos and you post process them and you need to find the original name or think of a new one

Anybody knows another alternative? It looks like this SW is not developed any further. The last release is from December 2015.
