MlvtoDng WorkFlow on Mac Tut
« on: January 11, 2014, 07:51:14 AM »
Hey so i seen some people having issues with MLVtoDng and i figured i create a tutorial for it. Now this MLVtoDNG was created by someone who i dont remember but it was on ML that i found them. It is super easy and frankly takes the guest work out of it all. Here is the video for people who dont like to read. Hope it helps out and this wasnt a repost.

I think the instructions that came with the script were pretty straightforward and easy to follow, but thanks for doing this anyway.

You might also opt to put it into the RAW Post Workflow section since many people would look there for info on conversion.

Thanks. I made this because even though the instruction were simple many people were still confused. Thanks again.

You could add the possibility to click the command several times which will start processing several mlv files simultaneously which will speed up the process when you have many files. The scripts will pick up any mlv that,s not sucked in to a folder and start from there.
Thanks

Great work!!!!!
When Devs are talking about reduce the bits for reduce file size, wich is the program combined to MLV to do this? Even open the wav file. THanks.

That does work also only thing is if you dont have a good computer it can slow the computer down. This way is more of the type of way as if you can hit the button, jump in the shower and come out and edit.

And what about the audio?

I just tried and after conversion i got a .IDX file that FCPX can't read.

Am i doing something Wrong?

I dont think you are doing anything wrong i havent really focused on the audio i will look into now and see if another program like premiere will read it.

Just to update anyone using RAW instead of the MLV option. I use RawMagic that will turn my RAW file into CinemaDng. The process is quite similar to the way the tutorial does MLV files except you use a program. Again this is on mac. If anyone would like a tutorial feel free to inbox me and ill make one for ya. thanks

After filming a file over 4gb It spanned them into two files (M01-1024.M01 and the M01-1024.MLV) and after running the command it merges them and loses the footage from the smaller file. How do properly merge the spanned files?

Thanks

Can someone paste the link to download the software?
Any news about sound?

If not a can't see any advantage to work with MLV.
