Title: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: Danne on October 05, 2014, 04:09:34 PM
Important
MLP project is abandoned and replaced with:
Switch for macOS Sierra (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=15108.0).
Please use that instead to keep yourself updated with the latest.






MLP NO LONGER MAINTAINED! Use Switch above instead.

Forum discussion regarding MLP starts here
MLP_discuss (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=13512.msg158857#msg158857)

Word of advice. All processes should be run separately. Keep different  files and processes separated if not stated otherwise. It,s all up to you to test and validate this workflow. I leave no guarantees. It should be treated as beta.

What,s MLP about?
MLP works with the following files:
-   RAW/MLV to dng conversion. Files workable in DaVinci Resolve(embeds audio) and Premiere Pro
-   RAW/MLV and folders of dng files to ProRes4444 files
-   Dual iso CR2 still images are converted to workable DNG files with correct white balance applied
-   HDR processing of both MLV/RAW and H264 mov files
-   HDR processing of CR2 still image files
-   Dual iso dng sequences are processed automatically coming from RAW/MLV files
-   RAW/MLV/dng/DNG/mov previewer
-   Multithreaded


Description
By right clicking a folder, containing any of the above mentioned files, and when selecting MLP from the contextual services menu to specified folder two additional folders will be created prior to running any further processing:
-   A_dan_log_3d_luts
-   A_lut_hold
By adding these folders you are able to add or change different settings before continuing processing such as white balance, brightness, gamma, add different luts. You are also able to change settings for HDR processing.
Adding setting files is easy. Simply pick something from the “A_dan_log_3d_luts” and put it in the “A_lut_hold”. Open up the txt file and change setting and save. Then start processing you files. The tricky part is to find the right combinations for how you want your files to be processed.
Whatever setting you create will be viewable as preview tif files if right clicking a RAW,MLV,dng,DNG or mov file directly. For more in depth information the user_guide above is highly recommended.

What you need
You will need some additional files to have MLP fully functional, FFmpeg among them. If you follow the HOWTO.txt in the download package you should be good to go. For doing changes in dng raw files dcraw(Dave Coffin) and exiftool(Phil Harvey) and exiv2(Andreas Huggel) are used. Mlv_dump(g3gg0, A1ex) raw2dng(A1ex) and cr2hdr(A1ex) for  developing dng files. For creating prores dng files are piped to FFmpeg(Fabrice Bellard) via dcraw. (FFmpeg not included in the download). For additional functionality see Howto.txt in the download folder.

For creating 3D luts I used Ben Turley´s cool tool online LUTCalc here https://cameramanben.github.io/LUTCalc/

Thanks to dfort for the tip which lead to being able to have all processes run from the same path. Also for testing and working out ways with the dead pixel fix function in dcraw and detecting a dual iso seg fault which now A1ex has fixed. For feedback and bugtests as always thank you deafeyejedi and dfort.

MLP is an open source project(GPL).
Main reason for this workflow is to optimize processes and get around issues arising in cr2hdr-r when upgrading to OS X El Capitan.
The workflow itself is build around bash scripts run through an automator service. You install it by double clicking the MLP workflow.
The best way to learn MLP workflow is to work with the user_guide.
All MLP sources are in the download. You can easily add changes in the scripts yourself. Add changes in the source_code_MLP folder then double click the A_move_content_to_workflow.command before installing MLP. More about this in the “Howto” file.
MLP still uses the core philosophy from cr2hdr-r but processes are optimized and gives a lot more possibilities to change settings manually. I rewrote the way HDR files are being treated and added some white balance templates. Processes are still multithreaded.


Many ideas and solutions are coming from people here at the forum, stackoverflow and other forums. I tweaked and optimized almost all scripts to fit the way I want it to work. MLP is still a work in progress and everything is open for changes.

cr2hdr-r automator app workflow NO LONGER MAINTAINED! Use MLP instead. For further questions regarding cr2hdr-r please pm me.


 - Transcodes MLV/RAW to folders. Dual iso movie files also supported. Dng files will work both in Davinci resolve and Premiere pro CC(thanks cpc for repackto16bit binary)
 - ProRes444 creation
 - HDR movie (thanks to Jerrykil script)
 - CR2 dual iso to DNG conversion
 - 3d lut support
 - Multithreading
 - speed_preview (adding speed and ability to preview one frame)

thread starts around here (lut_lab version)
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=13512.msg144696#msg144696

Always run the app from the parent folder!


Usage
- cr2hdr-r creates two additional folders (HDR_RAW_MLV and PRORES) inside the parent folder on first run, then the app quits.
- Place files in parent folder or in the created subfolders or in all three of them.
- Run the app again from the parent folder and it will convert first from parent folder then search the created subfolders for files.
All RAW/MLV originals will be placed in ORIGINAL folders after conversion

About created folders

Parent folder
- Transcoding MLV/RAW files. Dual iso is supported. dng files will work both in Davinci resolve and Premiere pro CC (Thanks @cpc for 16bit repacking binary).
- Dual iso CR2 files. If adobe dng converter is installed it will reduce the size of the resulting DNG lossless.

PRORES folder (ProRes444 creation)
- Creation of ProRes files.
- White balance control when using silent pic DNG or adding a CR2 with desired WB.
- add 3d luts in the mix(up to 20 luts can be used)

- FFmpeg binary needed for ProRes encoding. You find it here http://ffmpegmac.net/
The binary must have the name ffmpeg and have to be placed in /usr/bin/ folder on your computer


More speed and previews

http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=13512.msg149104#msg149104

- cr2hdr_r_lut_lab version will install a "speed_preview" workflow. Simply right click the parent folder and run "speed_preview" from services and it will add an extra process to PRORES and HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV folder. If you run the speed_preview by right clicking a mlv/raw/mov/MOV file you get one preview frame from the chosen file. Add CR2 for white balance and add a 3d lut for preset looks.


3D lut support
- Added lut support. add lut inside the PRORES folder or in subfolders together with the RAW/MLV file
- Hardcoded flat looking 3d lut when transcoding dual iso ProRes files. Thanks Andy600.

Up to 20 extra 3d luts can be added. When running the app the first time it creates some additional folder. Inside the PRORES folder some luts and a text description will be provided.

Preferred workflow in PRORES folder is to add one or more CR2 files( for white balance) and/or up to twenty 3d luts to you files.

Brightness, white balance, denoiser
Change above settings by adding commands to a generated png preview.

 FFmpeg binary needed for HDR encoding. You find it here http://ffmpegmac.net/
The binary must be named ffmpeg and have to be placed in /usr/bin/ folder on your computer


All processes are multithreaded!

Thanks Andy600 for provided dual iso luts and N/A for updated dcraw compiles, cpc for DNGRepackto16,
 Deafeyejedi and others for tests and feedback.



What is it
Cr2hdr-r relies on script made in bash calling for different binaries through an automator app. Most of the scripts have been gathered and tweaked from users here at the ML forum. The app is also provided as an automator workflow. The processing is done the same for both alternatives.
Main interest for starting this was for fast dual iso conversion(multithreaded) and to apply same levels(prevent flicker) using exiftool, to dual iso movie files but as it emerged it is now a sort of an ”all in one” processing solution handling above files.

Usage
Collect all the files you want to convert into a chosen folder. You can add multiple MLV, RAW, CR2, dng, MOV files. They will be converted one after the other. While processing an ORIGINALS folder will be created and original files will be moved to this folder after after processing is done.


*Good to know
Regarding format RAW. If filmed with spanned files such as R.00, R.01 etc the app will automatically cat these files and after the cat process start converting and then erase the spanned files replacing it with the concenated file. I personally I don,t see any reason to keep the spanned files after conversion since you get a new big file instead.


Why use it
I consider it a laid back all in one processing solution taking care of  many of the magic lantern processing needs.
Fast conversion of dual iso dng movie files and dual iso CR2 files (multithreaded).
Exiftool adds back metadata to processed MLV and RAW(fps) files. Also applies the same white level to dual iso movie sequences to avoid flicker.
Audio is shortened(sox) and wav metadata added(bwfmetaedit) to fit with autolinking in DaVinci Resolve.
HDR .MOV files which is converted multithreaded(thanks to Jerrykil).[/s]

Hi Danne,

Cool stuff !!

I've made some changes to your command :) Feel free to test and implement if you like it !

Code: [Select]
#!/bin/bash
workingDir=`dirname "$0"`
cd "${workingDir}"

echo -n "Enter path to DNG Dual ISO files:"
read path

find $path -name '*.dng' | xargs ./cr2hdr20bit --same-levels

Why did you move cr2hdr ? It works in the folder. So, no need to use sudo, happy user :)
If you want to move bin, don't forget to try if file exists:
Code: [Select]
if [ -e ./cr2hdr20bit ]
then
#mv ...
fi

So i keep experimenting to be able to use my external hard drive which keeps giving me random errors. Will run a few folders without the same level command and run a script after like this. It seems to be working.

#!/bin/bash
workingDir=`dirname "$0"`
cd "${workingDir}"

find . -name '*.DNG' | xargs /usr/bin/exiftool "-WhiteLevel<BlackLevel" -overwrite_original ; find . -name '*.DNG' | xargs /usr/bin/exiftool "-WhiteLevel+=50000" -overwrite_original 
Title: Re: OSX dual iso dng batch conversion ”app”
Post by: dmilligan on October 05, 2014, 09:10:57 PM
You could also make these into automator workflows (like mlvfs). There's a shell script action, and you can put the cr2hdr binary inside the workflow "package" (which is really just a directory => right click and show package contents), and just reference it from there (workflows are always "installed" to ~/Library/Services/). Open the mlvfs workflow in automator for reference. If you have any more questions on how it works, feel free to ask.

Been lurking around on getting the hang of automator for just that reason. Gonna do some more trying out before I get some questions out there. Good to be in this skilled coding community. Feels real nice.

Nice tool, Thanks Danne.
Title: Re: OSX dual iso dng batch conversion ”app”
Post by: Danne on October 06, 2014, 07:52:22 PM
Found a way to multithread the conversion by adding this line this after xargs -P 4 -n 1
The number 4 can be altered but don,t go too high I say. Your computer will run hot. --same-levels didn,t work with this but I could queue the exiftool commands for white and blacklevel so whitelevel is set on 50 000 at the moment. Change the number if you like.

For cr2hdr-r MLVFS.command it would look like this (copy paste):

#!/bin/bash
workingDir=`dirname "$0"`
cd "${workingDir}"

sudo mv ./cr2hdr20bit /usr/bin/cr2hdr20bit
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/cr2hdr20bit

find /path/to/parent/directory -name '*.dng' | xargs -P 4 -n 1 /usr/bin/cr2hdr20bit ;
find /path/to/parent/directory -name '*.DNG' | xargs /usr/bin/exiftool "-WhiteLevel<BlackLevel" -overwrite_original ;
find /path/to/parent/directory -name '*.DNG' | xargs /usr/bin/exiftool "-WhiteLevel+=50000" -overwrite_original


For the cr2hdr-r.command like this:

#!/bin/bash
workingDir=`dirname "$0"`
cd "${workingDir}"

sudo mv ./cr2hdr20bit /usr/bin/cr2hdr20bit
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/cr2hdr20bit

find . -name '*.dng' | xargs -P 4 -n 1 /usr/bin/cr2hdr20bit ;
find . -name '*.DNG' | xargs /usr/bin/exiftool "-WhiteLevel<BlackLevel" -overwrite_original ;
find . -name '*.DNG' | xargs /usr/bin/exiftool "-WhiteLevel+=50000" -overwrite_original 

Note. Once the cr2hdr20bit is placed you can erase the two sudo lines in the script.
sudo mv ./cr2hdr20bit /usr/bin/cr2hdr20bit
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/cr2hdr20bit

An automator app is now working, at least on my macbook pro 15 inch, mavericks. It will run 4 dual iso dng or CR2 files at the time so it is pretty fast working. I followed some steps from dmilligan (Thanks for pointing me in a direction) using automator and added a y/n question when moving binaries to /usr/bin/ with the script (Thanks Kitchehof).
The app should work straight as is if you have cr2hdr20bit installed in /usr/bin/ folder together with exiftool and dcraw in the same location. If not you could try run the install.command provided with necessary binaries.

Howto
Double click the cr2hdr-r.app and point it to a specific folder, a parent folder or a mlvfs mount. That,s it. Should start conversion when folder is selected. It will convert both dual iso dng and dual iso CR2 files.

@dmilligan. I used your LICENSE text (GNU) from your mlvfs app. Not for myself but for the binaries and respecting the developers whose binaries are used. Is this the right way? Also put in the GPL statement text from magic lantern forum in another document. Please get back to me if anythng seems out of the order here.

@Danne -- Thanks again for your PM regarding this new tool. After watching your tutorial and carefully read your instruction on how to install the command tools and to edit them in text editor as well...

This is what I'm seeing...

(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=https%3A%2F%2Ffarm4.staticflickr.com%2F3936%2F15494468626_f81fcd35e7_o.png&hash=05b28ca56b856eff7085ff356fad2edc) (https://flic.kr/p/pBccGN)

I read it somewhere whereas you mentioned that I need to make sure both draw & exiftool must be in the same location?

My question would be should I locate the files and move them within or should I just redownload them and place them into the same location as the new folder that was created for the DUAL ISO files to be exported into?

Thanks again for creating this great tool. Such a time saver (when I get it right! =))

Post by: DeafEyeJedi on October 12, 2014, 08:31:44 PM
@Danne -- Thanks again for your second PM... after reinstalling the exiftool, dcraw from within the folder that I downloaded per your suggestion.

Now I can see that it actually converts four of CR2/DNG's seamlessly... Macbook Pro 2006 running Mavricks has not been feeling HOT as of yet. LOL

(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=https%3A%2F%2Ffarm4.staticflickr.com%2F3945%2F15331183238_6dfbaa2248_b.jpg&hash=459ab77973cfd1e891011628830f7688) (https://flic.kr/p/pmLjDu)

But I'll be online waiting for the converts to be done and then will try to export it as a quicktime ONCE I color grade them in ACR just to see how it turns out, especially with the same levels being applied from the automator (sweet stuff @Danne!!!)

Unless I'm told otherwise... Thanks again mate!

Be in touch...
Title: Re: OSX dual iso dng/CR2 batch conversion ”app”
Post by: Danne on October 12, 2014, 08:34:39 PM
Nice to see it in action :)! Hope it turns out good.

Don,t forget to let the automator work til the end so all level commands are applied.
Title: Re: OSX dual iso dng/CR2 batch conversion ”app”
Post by: DeafEyeJedi on October 12, 2014, 08:46:54 PM
I hope so too and I just clicked on one of the DNG's and open it in ACR just to take a peek and its quality... I must admit that it is coming out much cleaner than it does directly from MLVFS alone (not sure why) but now my only question is...

In ACR -- is it a good idea to NOT implement with the highlights/shadows or does that not matter because the same levels has already been applied from the cr2hdr app itself?

(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=https%3A%2F%2Ffarm4.staticflickr.com%2F3947%2F15517967685_1d7cd10a33_b.jpg&hash=eb91a51d3faa1628ea133f31fc79e39d) (https://flic.kr/p/pDgD9Z)

I actually like doing your trick with adjusting the TONE CURVES within the Darks & Shadows.

P.S. If I still see some hot/pink pixels (EOS-M) do I just use MlRawViewer AFTERWARDS to export as DNG's with the Hot Pixel Remover enabled or is that not necessary? (Because in the newer version of MLVFS which has a built in OS to show the options to choose from such as HPR)  ::)

I'm still waiting for the the converts to be done within the Cr2hdr app.

To be continue...
Title: Re: OSX dual iso dng/CR2 batch conversion ”app”
Post by: Danne on October 12, 2014, 09:03:14 PM
Nice.
Post production is a whole different story. Only reason I fiddle with acr occasionaly is to get that last bit of highlight out of the file. Only use the curve tools and not contrast, higlight slider or shadow and such. Exposure, white balance and exposure sliders seems to work. I tend to use mlrawviewer which is also giving me nice pro res files and the workflow is so fast.
Can,t help you at all with dot pixel removal unfortunately.
Feel free to discuss post production in the dual iso movie thread 2,5k.

Same levels has nothing to do with flicker caused from acr. Same levels are needed since cr2hdr treats black and whitelevel individually  and not linear. THis is optimal when taking stills but not for movie sequenses obviously :).
Keep it up!

Post by: dmilligan on October 12, 2014, 10:03:51 PM
I took the liberty to modify your workflow so that it shows up as a "service" and you don't need to "install" cr2hdr, dcraw, exiftool first. I put them inside the workflow "package" contents, and reference them from there, this is possible because when you "install" a workflow service it always goes to the same directory: ~/Library/Services . So installation should simply require double clicking the cr2hdr.workflow and clicking "install" (just like mlvfs).

Post by: Danne on October 12, 2014, 10:19:04 PM
Thanks! I started doing a workflow service and it worked but couldn,t understand the reference thing from mlvfs.
Is this command line all it takes to reference to the three binaries?
 
cd ~/Library/Services/cr2hdr.workflow/Contents/

Ok, think  I understand now. Everything is referenced from the ~/Library/Services and the workflow package in there.

@Danne -- I'm currently uploading a few clips onto Vimeo after using the new workflow you proposed from earlier. Thanks & Be back to you shortly!

@dmilligan -- I went ahead and downloaded the modified workflow that you created w Danne's and it is now enlisted under my 'Service' package. Thanks for that, However from what I am seeing... it seems that I am unable to locate the new files after the process is completed? (It seems to be too quick almost as if it didn't work properly) Thanks again for your work though! (I'm more than happy to help improve your workflow as well)

Because earlier today with the cr2hdr-r app that Danne suggested worked flawlessly as far as I'm concerned.

should I stick with Danne's original way or try with the new workflow?

Unless I am missing something?

Left everything alone in ACR except for the tone curve regarding darks/shadows via your 'trick'... came out not too bad, eh? (although I think I do see some strange whitebalance changes in the middle & end of the clip -- not sure where did that come from) Just a step closer to perfection...
Thanks @Danne!

P.S. personally I would rather use MlRawViewer than QT7 so I can just apply some of my favorite LUT's... not sure why it just won't run on my macbook anymore after I tried uninstalling to downgrade back to older version but then I decided to erase that and go back to the latest version 1.3.2 and still no luck so far. Sorry @Baldand for my own stupidity! I'll retry to download from your bitbucket site once again. Be in touch!

Here's Take 2 of the latest saga with the DUAL-ISO MLV > MLVFS > cr2hdr-R (20-bit) > MlRawViewer (1.3.2) export as ProRes 4444 w LUT's applied. (I tried to export as DNG's but then it crashes every time -- let me know if you would like for me to send you a crash report regarding this situation @Baldand)

I,m trying to get my head around extracting dng files with the raw2dng binary. I want the script to move the files to created folders and then make the command extract the dng files within the folders. Tried with xarg and a few other solutions but files either end up outside the folder or in my home directory and sometimes in the right folder? Maybe someone skilled could explain wht I,m missing here? Code below comes from g3gg0, dubzeebass and internet :)

#!/bin/bash
workingDir=`dirname "$0"`
cd "${workingDir}"

for FILE in `ls -A1 *.RAW *.raw 2>/dev/null`; do
    BASE=`echo $FILE | cut -d "." -f1`;
    mkdir $BASE;
    mv ./"$BASE".RAW ./$BASE
    done
   

find . -name '*.RAW' -exec raw2dng  {} \;

Updated my first post with a new "app version". It will now recursively work on RAW, MLV, CR2, dng files.

Simply place all your files in a folder and run the app in the folder. The app starts creating folders and then converts the dual iso files and applies same level within the folder(This goes for RAW, MLV). At the end it puts the originals to an ORIGINALS folder. It will run 4 dng files or CR2 files at the time and your computer will work multithreaded.
It is all BETA and I consider myself noob in this territory. USE and TEST WISELY, backup with copies before testing and let me know what you think.

Although I did it twice just to make sure. For some reason after your app is completed and I get an error when trying to open the newly converted DNG's. Tried again with LR5 -- same.

Thanks.
It,s the white and black level that didn,t finish. Sure you let the script work til the end?
You can run the app on a converted folder and it will apply black and white level and skip conversion. Should be ok after that.
Get back after trying.

I actually did let it run through overnight so I'm assuming it did apply the white/black levels toward the end?

I am currently converting again with the newest app that you mentioned to me in PM from last night and will upload a sample DNG as soon as its completed..

It's still in the process so I'll wait for the white/black levels to be applied...

@Danne -- all good. apparently it opens up just fine via ACR/LR5 as soon as I got home tonight. Both takes. Perhaps the first take was due to not being fully completed (as you stated regarding the black/white levels not being applied) as strange as that could be... not sure how this happened but I wouldn't worry about it.

Could be due to my old poor 2006 macbook pro running Mavricks, ha?

Hi all! I made some changes in this app and added a description about what in the first post. Mainly added the possibility to cat spanned files. This is oldschool I know but could be nice though to at least have the app handle the files one way or the other than not at all. Or use Mlvfs or Mlrawviewer for export before cr2hdr conversion.

One word.  RAW

Is mlvfs exporting multithreaded? Gotta check that out. This workflow runs 4 dngs in parallell.
Title: Re: OSX dual iso dng/CR2 batch conversion ”app”
Post by: DeafEyeJedi on November 13, 2014, 07:36:47 PM
@swinxx -- I also think it's because I noticed when converting 20-bit dual ISO w MLVFS it comes out under exposed whereas if using @Danne's app it gives you well exposed DNG's as well as fixing black/white levels for dual-ISO videos which is a PLUS!

If you rather use MLVFS -- you just gotta apply the black/white levels and/or adjust the exposures manually along with highlight recovery as oppose to @Danne's app when the highlights seems to be already taken care of because if I do try to reduce the highlights it basically makes them go a bit too low so I kind of like how @Danne's app does all the 'dirty' work for you if that makes sense...

Title: Re: OSX dual iso dng/CR2 batch conversion ”app”
Post by: dmilligan on November 13, 2014, 10:16:33 PM
Do you know if it is multithreaded deafeyejedi?
It is...sort of. It can process multiple frames at the same time (in separate threads), but it will only do so if you actually ask it to, i.e. if you actually try to read both DNGs at the same time. If you're reading the DNGs from a post processing app that supports "pre-fetching" or loading multiple frames concurrently, then MLVFS will be multi-threaded. I know SpeedGrade supports this and there's even a setting where you can specify the number of frames it will "pre-fetch" (it's a good idea to set it to the number CPU cores you have for this). If you only try and read one DNG at a time, then MLVFS is only going to use one thread to process that DNG. An example would be the Finder, if you use the Finder to copy files out of MLVFS mount, it only copies one file at a time. If you wanted it to be "multithreaded" you could start multiple copy operations (for example start to copy out half the DNGs, and then start to copy out the second half).

Now, I suppose that I could support "pre-fetching" internally to MLVFS => when one frame is asked for, go a head and process the next one (or the next several) in a separate thread, so it will be ready when it's asked for, but that will be some work to implement.

If you rather use MLVFS -- you just gotta apply the black/white levels and/or adjust the exposures manually
That is not true. You should not need to adjust the black/white level with MLVFS. If you have an example file where MLVFS gives the wrong black or white level, then please share it with me so I can fix MLVFS.

As far as manual exposure/highlights adjustment goes, I've never met a dual ISO image I didn't need to make some sort of manual adjustment anyway. In fact, that's sort of the point (to have lots of ability to push the image really hard).

Been busy working lately but will dive into some more testing soon. A lot of good stuff with mlvfs and also mlrawviewer lately.

Yea, I was under the impression mlvfs would set the same consistent white and black level for dual iso dng:s. Gotta investigate further.

Since I mostly use dual iso for 3x zoom I,ve been working with raw but I,ve been trying some mlv stuff too and it it,s really nice too although I miss maybe one extra step in performance boost but that is ok. Nice thing with mlvfs is of course the no need for first conversion step, big timesaver.

@danne

how do i know when the app is finished?

update: i have converted a dual iso mlv, but sorry mate, i have to tell you that after converting, its flickering..
perhaps i am doing something wrong.

i installed all your required files with the command app, then i opened up the cr2hdr-r pointed to the directory of my dual iso mlv folder, and waited. when i now import those files and play it back, its flickering.

Update:
i have to point out that my shot is problematic, however... when i convert my shot with MLVFS, it is Davinci Resolve Conform and Not Flickering.

Did you install exiftool? Not sure why it won, t work. You could post some sample variations for me to look at or simply stick to mlvfs since it, s mlv. Would be nice to find what is wrong though.
You see a small wheel at the top when the conversion is finished. It is an automator thing.
I think mlvfs and cr2hdr-r is using the same binary from Alex so flicker problem should be with white/blacklevel coming from exiftool.

MLVFS does not use the cr2hdr binary. It has it's own implementation of cr2hdr. Much of the code came originally from cr2hdr, but I tweaked the code a lot and there are some important differences. The biggest difference is that MLVFS outputs CDNGs instead of plain old DNGs. Also, the black and white levels come from the metadata in the original MLV file, while cr2hdr computes them from the actual image data. This means that MLVFS's DNGs are all going to already have the same black and white levels and its a little faster (since we don't have to do some computations on the image data).

What,s the difference Swinxx? You could post two samples comparing? THe quality of the converted dng shouldn,t change unless dmilligan also tweaked the fullres or amazed code?

Nice to hear you efforts dmilligan, cdng, tweaked code. Have you created a mac binary which perhaps could work the same as a1ex cr2hdr20bit? Would be nice if cdng, original metadata and same levels would find it,s way into this app as well and then we also would have a raw converter :)

- as mlvfs is mlv only, this would indeed be a great idea.
- i have deleted the images from your app but will convert again for posting here. one difference here is that the conversion with your app is flickering here, and that in my scenario, the picture quality seems better. you will see when i post the pics.

Hey Swinxx and Deafeyejedi. I,m trying to convert longer files containing more than 1000 frames. Encountered an issue when converting a longer mlv file which seemed to stop the conversion after around 700 dng:s. I look at the file that stopped the conversion but it seems fine. On rerun it stops around the same place but not on the exact same dng. Some hick up with the binary maybe.
I then tried a longer raw which seemed to work. Could anybody try a longer raw vs a longer mlv to see if the issue is reproduced?


*update. noticed this behaviour also for raw sequences. It seems the cr2hdr has som issues maybe with blurry files, hmm

I think you can skip the long tests. Not exactly sure what is causing the hickup but probably the cr2hdr binary has some automation going on which could lead to make it stop. Found this in terminal. Seen it sometimes before.

Ok, so issue regarding segmentation fault 11 seem software and picture related. Not file format spanned or exfat related.
Might occur when a file can,t be handled with cr2hdr and converted directly. Pic might be blurry to bright, or something else. It seems to work when retrying so I put in some reruns of the converter if it should stop randomly while running. Of course dual iso should be used in contrasty situations for best results and not judged from badly uncontrasty test files as with the case where I got the problem.

I,ve started playing with exiftool and there is a lot to learn. I have created an experimental build. It converts much as before but after conversion is done it gives you back the metadata(MLV) into the converted DNG file. MLV of course has a lot more to tell than RAW. I also implemented a whitelevel command which should give a correct(same level) whitelevel reading read from the first dng and applied after conversion.

If anybody wants to try it out feel free. Do copies of originals!

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4tCJMlOYfirN1pkLTAzNTFwZUE/view?usp=sharing

This is used for copying mlv metadata, adding it back and applying whitelevel

exiftool *.dng -X > /tmp/a.xml -overwrite_original
find "${workingDir}" -name '*.dng' -print0 | xargs -0 -P 4 -n 1 cr2hdr20bit
exiftool -tagsfromfile /tmp/a.xml -all:all *.DNG -overwrite_original
exiftool -tagsfromfile *.DNG -exif:whitelevel -overwrite_original

As for know the metadata is being applied to mlv files when the process starts from an original mlv raw file. When you run the app on a folder with already converted dng files  it works as before and with no mlv data changed after conversion except for whitelevel.
If you test please check for flicker  since I didn,t include blacklevel correction. Seems to work up to 70000 on whitelevel and I,m not sure if the files go any further.

From first post.

Experimental cr2hdr-r 0.2d "app"(DaVinci Resolve)
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4tCJMlOYfirOHdVSkpwSmlQVU0/view?usp=sharing

Thanks to dmilligan for pointers and information about wav information and TimeCode(exifdata).

Works with RAW(no audio of course) on different framerates.
Works on MLV files with audio (Only when filmed in 25fps for now)

Above version converts as usual but with naming scheme working with DaVinci resolve. It runs audio+16-bit DNG from converted MLV files in Da Vinci resolve(only in 25fps for now) RAW is also working(Without audio of course).
Since I simply copy the missing ixml information into the audio(wav) the information for now will be hardcoded to master speed 25000. Audio and DNG will merge only when filmed in 25fps for now.
There are some new nice binaries added, SoX(shortening audio) and BWF MetaEdit and also a created bmcc.xml file. Run the command installer and then you,re good to go.

cr2hdr-r 1.0 "app"
(DaVinci Resolve)
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4tCJMlOYfirXy1UY043R04yOTg/view?usp=sharing

It should work now with DaVinci Resolve. From my tests audio embeds when inserting ixml data to the file which matches the framerate filmed in. So included for installing is a folder with bmcc.xml. Store the originals and consider this a hacky way to get the audio to embed with the files.

Since the IT guys at work couldn't figure out the actual usename/pw in Terminal -- so here I am at back at home just started out the latest update & currently rendering overnight in both MLV/RAW along w several Dual-ISO's as well worth approximately 91.55gb...

Thanks for the update once again and stand by for the results!

Main difference is all ixml and exif info is recopied or inserted after conversion with cr2hdr20 bit. Straight to the 16-bit DNG files. Mlvfs is producing proper cdng files and dmilligan reprogrammed to get a professional workflow and professional files.
My cr2hdr-r is for fun and learning bash and such. Maybe I get some time learning actual programming sometime. Who knows ;)
If audio embeds files should be of high quality though. Do some tests.

Updated to version 1.3 in first post. Now cr2hdr-r is also provided as a workflow service in automator. No need to install binaries, already inside the workflow service. Also added a command line which tells if it the file extracted from RAW or MLV are dual iso or not. If it,s not cr2hdr stops trying to convert files and proceeds to the next MLV or RAW file.

Works with DaVinci Resolve.

Post by: DeafEyeJedi on December 05, 2014, 04:48:21 AM
Dude... this app seems to be a bit quicker on the renderings. It pushes 40-45 dng's per second before the dual-iso gets converted (which does about 4 dng's every 5-6 seconds!)

Holy Smokes...  8)

Makes me want to shoot more Dual-ISO with ease on my mind!

Thanks, Danne!

It only makes me wonder how much faster could this be if I were to use a latest model of MBP's because my current 2006 15inch MPB is modified with 250gb SSD along with a mere 6gb of ram.

Thanks for posting. Hard to tell if the flicker in the sky comes from acr, lack of including black level(only same level for whitelevel in recent version)
What do you say? Is it the same as before regarding flicker?
Title: Re: OSX dual iso dng/CR2 batch conversion ”app”
Post by: DeafEyeJedi on December 05, 2014, 07:37:38 PM
Not quite sure. I duplicated the workflow in ACR (highlights/shadows) as previously done in earlier test. Only difference was the fact that I didn't use AE last time so could that play a factor in this so called flickering issue? (I thought it looked good until the sun starts causing the flares which makes it look a bit flickering so I wouldn't know which to blame it on?)

Perhaps I should open the DNG's in PS and export as Tiff's like how I did before and see if that would make the differences? I don't think it would...

Agreed.

What sliders did you mess with in acr?
I just touched the Tone Curve (Dark/Shadows @ +100).
Title: Re: OSX dual iso dng/CR2 batch conversion ”app”
Post by: DeafEyeJedi on December 06, 2014, 09:22:40 PM
Actually after watching the test clip several times and noticed it was slightly under exposed. Went into ACR via AE and noticed I didn't have the ToneCurve shadow slider all the way up to +100 (it was at +83) when the Highlight was still at +100.

My fault on that guys...

Here's the correct take...


MLV > cr2hdr-r > AE > ProRes 4444
Title: Re: OSX dual iso dng/CR2 batch conversion ”app”
Post by: Danne on December 06, 2014, 09:27:04 PM
Looks nice :)
Tried out 50fps and the audio issue. Not sure why audio it,s halfed in timeline in AE and the problem seems to be there in mlvfs and mlrawviever as well. Actually full audio is recorded but something doesn,t synch with higher framerate when recording MLV.
Title: Re: OSX dual iso dng/CR2 batch conversion ”app”
Post by: DeafEyeJedi on December 06, 2014, 09:29:37 PM
Thanks & I noticed that as well -- Hopefully there'll be a fix for the 50/60fps Audio issue sometime soon...

Probably related to ML coding & hopefully a1ex or g3gg0 will implement a quick update!

Post by: DeafEyeJedi on December 08, 2014, 08:29:23 PM
@Danne -- did another test with Dual-ISO 2.5k MLV. Converted w latest app through service workflow. My question is... Do you rather adjust Tone Curve first in ACR from AE before exporting with VisionLOG.

Because after exported I wanted to try apply a certain 3D LUT that I thought looked pretty clean but for some reason the highlights looked completely drained out (like as if I did it too much but hadn't touched the highlight slider on the main page within ACR other than the Tone Curves) so I'm not sure if I am doing something odd during this process?

Thoughts?
Title: Re: OSX dual iso dng/CR2 batch conversion ”app”
Post by: Danne on December 08, 2014, 11:20:45 PM
I actually don,t use vision log that much. I try to get some good results straight in acr. Been a while now though, a lot of other work going on. Tried vision log but I am not too skilled in post production outside acr so couldn,t get highlights back as i wanted.
Title: Re: OSX dual iso dng/CR2 batch conversion ”app”
Post by: DeafEyeJedi on December 09, 2014, 12:09:55 AM
Apparently I just tested out a Non dual-ISO file w VisionLOG and it comes out well than from a dual-ISO in which I guess makes sense in a way...

Since Dual-ISO ALREADY gives you that extra DR? lol

Hi -- I just wanted to confirm w you that once I convert MLV's into DNG's from your app... They won't be able to show in Previews (unlike how it can with MLVFS) could this be related to Yosemite OS X?

Update to 1.5. (first post)

Been playing around with awk in terminal which led to some updates.

- Faster exiftool handling. Applies same white level and other things all in one row. This leads to faster conversion times of dual iso files.
- Exiftool applies correct fps to RAW files.

That's a cool feature add-on regarding HDR conversion.

It's you that may be able to revolutionize HDR back from the 'dead' with this awesome app of yours!

I started conversions of Dual-ISO photos and man you were right...

It is indeed faster -- well job done, Danne!

Looking forward to your next update w ProRes export as well as the automated upscaling for slo-mo's!

Updated to 1.8 and added ability to create hdr movies. The hdr script incorporated comes from Jerrykil. Also included an installation instruction.
Changed the thread title.
cr2hdr-r is able to handle the following files

-   dng (dual iso)
-   CR2 (dual iso)
-   MLV (both regular and dual iso + wav (should work with DaVinci resolve)
-   RAW (both regular and dual iso)*read "Good know"
-   HDR (MOV + wav (48, 50 or 60fps recommended. Fps is halfed. Script from Jerrykil)

No color matrice altering in these files. Might work to do but as for now it has to be done after the conversion step. Don, t know if it is someting that could be done with exiftool. Dmilligan, Andy600 or chmee would know more I, m certain.

However, I notice whenever I update the app and replace in Applications -- it still says version 1.2 from within the 'Info' ( but I know it.s 1.8 ) perhaps you already know about this?

Now I'm currently testing out MLV's converted from your latest app to verify the color-matrices... so exciting!

Will be using @Andy600's Cinelog's LUT's to see best results as possible...

Havn, t implemented color matrices but it shouldn, t be to hard with exiftool. Would be nice to get some feedback on this once it, s implemented and how it will respond to Andy600 lut.

About HDR I recorded some raw 50fps and exported to prores in mlrawviewer with a flat setting before ttanscoding with cr2hdr-r.
 Gave some fine results actually :)

cr2hdr-r version 2.0
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4tCJMlOYfirQkpITV9SRktvQWM/view?usp=sharing

New stuff.
- Ability to transcode to ProRes with audio, both regular and dual iso files.
- Automated transcoding HDR raw files to ProRes. Slowmotion clips will be automatically adjusted to correct aspect ratio. Dual iso files will be brightened. (These settings can be tweaked in script).

How does it work:(check the pics)
1 - Run the app as usual pointing to parent directory with files
2 - At first run two folders will be created PRORES and HDR_RAW and the app will quit. Next step simply put the files inside the folders for which you want ProRes och HDR transcoding to ProRes and run the app again. Everything gets converted, both parent directory and newly added folders. In the end originals will be put into the ORIGINALS folder and the ProRes files will be moved to parent directory.

Please run the install.command again as it will install dcrawx86, an older build which works better than newer builds for now.

Feel free to test and give feedback.

I like how the app makes the PRORES & HDR_RAW folders before running it again the 2nd time in order to complete the process by creating DNG's as well as the ProRes.

Though I haven't test either Dual-ISO nor HDR yet. I'm getting ready for work as I type but ofc I ran a quick test TWICE with a small MLV file from 5D3 113.

-I get prompted with an error after ProRes is finished rendering. (Thinking that it didn't work but was able to locate the .MOV file) However, I can still playback the ProRes Quicktime file that it created BUT apparently it makes it completely OE. Not sure if this is because the app thought it was a Dual-ISO and it wasn't?

Post by: Danne on February 06, 2015, 09:13:30 PM
Thanks for testing. It is still very beta with the ProRes handling and the brigtness probably is due to as you say, thinking it,s a dual iso file. Actually, if the dng files are named with upper case letters DNG it will turn into dual iso brightness mode.
The error prompt is because of the app moving around in and out of different directories not ending and coming back as it should.  I,m trying to get it to work for all kind of transcoding scenarios but clearly it is getting harder and harder for every new implementation :).
I,ll check to see what can be done soon. Might have to diminish some possibilities in the end.
Version 1.8 might be the sweet spot for this project. HDR with Pro Res files created in Mlrawviewer and then put into the folder for conversion should work really good. Some fine luts in Mlrawviewer too.

Thanks! The second vid looks quite good. Strange that vimeo seems to runs some antiflicker in the first vid :). Or is transcoding 60 fps to 30fps?
The random flicker in the second vid is probably due to enfuse not working linear. Need some sort of "same level" setting for it as with dual iso ;).
I could push the dcraw brightness even further but it will kll the highlights. I think what is needed is some sort of flat setting. THe challenge would be to find some way to wor gamma, contrast in dcraw but when I tried I couldn,t get it to work any good.
There is also the possibilty to tweak ffmpeg settings and maybe apply a lut in there as well.
I,ll check in later, busy weekend. Thanks for now.

*UPDATE*

This morning I shot a brief BTS for a friend's promo shoot w 5D3... even though it's not necessarily required to shoot RAW/MLV but decided to just go all out with a bunch of different types of modules under certain DR situations. Heck I even went with RAW, MLV, Dual-ISO, HDR-Video, along with some Stills and doing so couldn't have been any easier with an ease of mind only because of this remarkable app of yours @Danne!  :D

It's quite rare to have this type of positive effect (or energy if I may say) coming directly from someone's sole app that helps with my fun day of shooting regardless of the assignments/situations/modules knowing in my head that EVERYTHING is going to be ALL RIGHT!

It definitely looks like it is going to be a nice long nap for me while the latest cr2hdr-r is rendering approximately 262.25 GB worth of Magic.  ;)

**In case you were curious, I first tried to start the app when files were on each separate Folder respectively within from each CF cards (to keep it organized and to know which card it came from) but apparently the app didn't work or won't run it -- so I then decided just to bundle all the files together from each Folders into a single Folder which seems to do the trick -- Not sure if this makes sense?

Thanks again mate and everyone else on board!

Hehe, glad to hear. Nice to see you trying out such a huge amount of files. As for now I think running a mix of files would work better than one category at the time. I, m working on it so it will work both ways. Also refining ffmpeg and hdr transcoding.
I, ll be back :)

*UPDATE* Take 2:

Maybe its because I had too many files under one folder OR could this be related to using external HD? I may have to run this whole thing again from scratch ( No worries this was to be expected  ;) ). Basically I notice that it didn't render the HDR videos and seems to instead takes my regular .MOV files (non HDR) and renders those as if even tho it wasn't HDR. Strange?

Also noticed it didn't spit out .MOV's for all MLV's... Perhaps it got stopped somehow (tried again and still wouldn't produce - I'll have to look into this and figure out why/how?

Here I recorded via screen flow to show you what I've notice... Kind of difficult to explain so I hope this would be easier for you to understand where I'm coming from.

This is all done after the rendering was done overnight.


**Notice the strange flicker pattern? It's due to Vimeo's conversion takes it from 60p to 30p lol -- I'll also be testing another round with selective HDR videos into a separate folder to see if that would help as well as using the MLV file from earlier (Dodgers Stadium) to verify the brightness settings for .MOV files...

STAND BY!

I'm hoping this is an human error on my part.... hmmm?

**EDIT Part 2 (Dodgers Stadium)**

Here's what happens when I tried the same footage again from scratch...


Not sure why it won't run it?

**EDIT Part 3**

Turns out that it was in fact an error on my part because for some reason I assumed that all files could be just in the first parental directory before rendering the app 2nd time. I just took all the MLV's and placed them into the PRORES folder that was created by the app (as well as placing the HDR videos into the HDR_RAW folder)  :o

This problem only occurred with the 262.25 GB folder which is connected via USB 3.0 to an external hardrive  -- if I take one MLV file and placed that into a separate folder on my desktop which seems to work fine? I haven't tested as a whole because I only have 140 GB of space on my Mac Mini's SSD. I find this Strange!

I feel like I should wait before starting all over again once you get the new update released -- or is it possible to keep the converted cdng's and hope they will work with the next update or would that still cause problems?

Sorry about the mess and my fault on this one!

Took the HDR .mov files out from the BTS Promo Folder that 'wouldn't work' earlier and placed them into a new Folder.

Apparently it did the trick.

Here's an quick example...


BUT still wouldn't produce a .MOV file (because of my error from earlier due to NOT putting the MLV file inside the created folder "PRORES" from cr2hdr-r. MY BAD!)

Here's the overall experience...

*Sneak Peak: HDR Video (Pre/Post-cr2hdr-r)*


FYI -- I also notice that the app STILL converts non-HDR videos ( it messes up the framerate and becomes a bit CHOPPY )http://vimeo.com/119064904 (http://vimeo.com/119064904) and maybe you are already aware of this since its basically still in BETA mode.  ;)

Thanks for posts, I,ll check them after work. About .MOV it will convert all files called .MOV put in the parental folder so only put in hdr .MOV in there.
About PRORES and HDR_RAW folder , they are still very beta.

Bug on my external hard drive is still exiftool randomly messing with frames. I do transcodes on my nternal drive. This is, or was a bug on mac side last I read about it. Might have gone away in Yosemite, not sure.

Thanks for efforts. I,d skip the PRORES and HDR_RAW action for now if I were in your shoes.

Post by: DeafEyeJedi on February 09, 2015, 09:09:33 AM
Makes sense. Thanks, Danne!

Also it's now spitting out .MOV's for each MLV one at a time before I get prompted encountered with the error window.

Seems I have to do it manually after each MLV file renders. It's now getting more strange.

I'll just have to clean up the files and folders into original spots...  perhaps start over again with 1.8 instead?

MLVFS would totally be awesome but it just takes forrrrever!
Title: Re: cr2hdr-r OSX batch conversion app (dng, CR2 ,MLV, RAW, HDR video)
Post by: Danne on February 09, 2015, 09:23:25 AM
Yeah, 1.8 is the safest bet right now. THe RAW, MLV processing HDR is a slow one. I would recommend shooting raw, mlv HDR and transcode to ProRes using MLRawviewer and then put the MOV files in 1.8 app. ANdrew got all luts and white balance thing working really good. Something I can,t say in my workflow ;)

cr2hdr-r 2.1
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4tCJMlOYfircDVWZGZMZ1FOQ3M/view?usp=sharing

New try. The app works as version 1.8 but with these addings below.

As in version 2.0 it creates two folders on first run inside the parent folder.  "PRORES" and "HDR_RAW_MLV". Put files in these newly folders if you like these transcodings. Run the app again from the "parent folder", not from the newly created folders. See pics.
Should work more stable now. "HDR_RAW_MLV" is pretty slow but try it out if you like :). HDR scripts comes from Jerrykil. WOuld be fun to see it get some usage :)

Thanks @Danne -- It's actually really nice to be able to wake up and get an PM from you regarding your App's update.

Wish I could be more of a help regarding BUG's... so I have a bunch of already converted Dual-ISO's DNG's created from pretty much all of the MLV's from Saturday's BTS shoot.

My question is... can I Just keep these as it is and put them in the parental directory before I run your latest update?

Also I just realized that I shot the HDR-Videos in .MOV from the 5D3 (not RAW) would that be an issue if I were to place the .mov HDR videos into the HDR_RAW folder created by cr2hdr-r?

I think I should have known better... guess I'll need to SLOOOOOW down! lol

Post by: Danne on February 09, 2015, 08:17:19 PM
Do you mean already converted DNG files? I would put them aside as the app will maybe run same level on them. Not sure since I could have changed this.
Title: Re: cr2hdr-r OSX batch conversion app (dng, CR2 ,MLV, RAW, HDR video)
Post by: DeafEyeJedi on February 09, 2015, 08:35:40 PM
Guess I was hoping that once the DNG's are already converted (but haven't process the .MOV's yet) will it pick up from there and spit out MOV's?

Because I just tried and it didn't work so seems like I'll have to delete all the already converted DNG's (from 2.0) and just start from stratch with the MLV's...

I won't be using the HDR-video .MOV's since they are already converted and look fine (now I wish I had shot HDR in RAW and not h.264 in my 5D3) haha.


*edit*

In other words.. I also tried using MLRV 1.4.3 to play back the DNG's (from your app) which looks really nice (can fix WB, add LUT's) and export them as ProRes but then it would crash after spitting out 3 or 4 .MOV's from MLRV (I already sent CR to @Baldand)

However, I've also tried this again with both MLRV 1.3.4 & 1.3.3 versions and get same results. (crashes after 3-4 .MOV 's)

Could this be related to your converted DNG's (Dual-ISO MLV) because not sure if I need to do this the other way around?  ( MLRV > cr2hdr-r > AE )

Thoughts?

Post by: DeafEyeJedi on February 09, 2015, 10:12:11 PM
Seems the brightness comes out well regarding ProRes from regular MLV's @ Dodgers Stadium.  8)


Currently I'm running a quick test before I go ahead and redo that large folder again from recent BTS. Just need to get a bunch of .MOV's rendered ( prefer to use LUT's within MLRV but the frequent crashing is driving me NUTS even on this modified MacMini which I don't understand either <-- I uninstalled CUDA/NIVIDA just last week: could this be related to such random issues @baldand? ) but as long as I get them done by end of this week on Friday then all will be fine.


Fun stuff!  :P

*EDIT*

I just swapped converted DNG's Folders out of PRORES folder and replaced w Original MLV's to start from scratch again because it wouldn't run it for some reason the other way around.

I plan on deleting the DNG's after I get all the ProRes .MOV's rendered (I know it sounds dumb but seems to be the only way atm unless you could somehow provide an option to ONLY spit out ProRes without DNG's OR just have it run off the already converted DNG's to spit out ProRes as is? I know I could have used MLRV instead but it still crashes on me.. lol got too many Dual-ISO MLV's so I would still prefer your app) However, I can view DNG's in playback fine within AE, PP, FCPX but DR11 just lags so bad.

Deleted the 260 GB worth of previously converted DNG's to free up space on my eHD because I did the math and it wouldn't be enough to double the space with the newly converted combined with the old so I didn't want to chance it.   ;D

FYI regarding 2.1 update -- it goes through all RAW files just fine with ProRes...

As for MLV -- it stops after each ProRes renders meaning I would have to be on the look out and manually restart your app after each MLV files.

In case you were curious...

Updated the 2.1 link with this link.
cr2hdr-r 2.1

Should work better now. Please report if other things are screwy. Could be sound , aspect ratio, etc since there are several alternative transcoding alternatives in the script.

*Feedbacks Regarding 2.1*

Dual-ISO MLV seems to be spitting out 2-3+ stops OE .mov's within PRORES.

Regular MLV PRORES .mov's are fine atm.

https://vimeo.com/119210801 (https://vimeo.com/119210801)

Question -- is it correct that your app produces 422 HQ ProRes .mov's whereas MLRV does 4444 ProRes or no?

*EDIT*

Forgot to mention that two footage I'm comparing this with in this clip (lower right) is an actual .MOV file directly from MLRV 1.4.3 which used converted Dual-ISO DNG's made from your app in case you were wondering.

Thanks

Regarding Dual iso, I overeposure 20+ in dcraw. Gotta find some other way to handle those files to get a flat look. If I,m leaving them they are really, really dark so don,t know if ProRes 10bit would pick up the dynamic range coming out that way.

Here's the comparison after the latest update regarding Dual-ISO MLV's spitting out .mov's OE... it's a little better. I wonder if it's because I didn't maximize the ETTR effect properly in my 5D3 which may be the reason why it looks like that? No?

Just let me know if you need the original Dual-ISO MLV's (or DNG's) for you to work with personally?

Not sure if that would help with the mathematics on your end?

Post by: DeafEyeJedi on February 10, 2015, 10:27:23 PM
Just a thought... What do you think of adjusting the OE to +18 (or +20 if you prefer) with HL toned down to -20ish (or more) along with a little contrast (+8ish) or whatever you like?

Would that help with the noise from being somewhat too obvious regarding the .mov ProRes files from Dual-ISO MLV's?
Title: Re: cr2hdr-r OSX batch conversion app (dng, CR2 ,MLV, RAW, HDR video)
Post by: Danne on February 10, 2015, 10:35:43 PM
I think a lut is the way to start. I tried fiddling with gamma in dcraw but it lacks contrast and efficient highlight recovery. Got some progress with gamma changes in ffmpeg but the settings applied are still very insufficient.
Title: Re: cr2hdr-r OSX batch conversion app (dng, CR2 ,MLV, RAW, HDR video)
Post by: Danne on February 10, 2015, 10:45:45 PM
you could try dcraw yourself actually. Open up terminal And write

dcraw
enter

check the alternatives to apply.

You can apply changes and convert a dng to a tiff file to see. In terminal write

example
dcraw -T -b 20 drag dng file here
enter

This will give you a brigthened (-b 20) tiff (-T) file. Tried highlight rcovery but leveling dual iso file was to hard to achieve.

Post by: Andy600 on February 10, 2015, 10:46:49 PM
Your not gonna get that much DR into a 10bit container (ProRes etc) without a log transform. A gamma function is not sufficient and you need to map the linear code values to log to be able to invert properly. I'm on it ;)

I'm thinking this will be a job for Log-C or Slog3. I don't think Cineon is enough but I'll find out.

*Feedbacks*

Just wanted to give a heads up regarding ProRes .mov's -- seems the Audio is corrupted in varieties of ways. I wonder if it's because of how I had to combined 5 CF cards filled with a bunch of RAW/MLV's, Dual-ISO, HDR, etc all together which included files with same names such as "mlv_rec.tmp" would have some kind of a negativity effect or perhaps confusion to your app?

(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=https%3A%2F%2Ffarm8.staticflickr.com%2F7295%2F15877099854_1a2e53376a_n.jpg&hash=29dfdce1bb4f7a96e407bc33187330b8) (https://flic.kr/p/qc1hCW)

Noticed that these files are still sitting in the PRORES folder after the app is done... is this normal or no?

Thanks fr feedback. Seems it converts and separates processes at the moment.
Will look into the tmp. Think it,s from the mlv files but those shouldn,t have to do with audio.

Have to look further regarding audio. You could test some audio files and see if you could narrow down anything.

Are those mlv_rec tmp files not coming from your card which are created when recording MLV?
Title: Re: cr2hdr-r OSX batch conversion app (dng, CR2 ,MLV, RAW, HDR video)
Post by: DeafEyeJedi on February 11, 2015, 10:53:19 AM
well when I go down to bottom of the DNG folder next to the last .dng file where you can locate the actual audio file (.wav) which playbacks fine in previews or iTunes.

But when playing the ProRes .mov file itself... it sounds like the audio would be chopping in and out (or sometimes speeds up and finishes it before the footage ends) since you say it shouldn't have anything to do with the mlv_rec.tmp files being combined which automatically changes the name to ".copy" and ".copy 2" you know that, right?

Are those mlv_rec tmp files not coming from your card which are created when recording MLV?

Yes, they were dragged over directly from all the CF cards. I still have them with the original footage unformatted if that helps?

I was just unsure whether it was a good idea when I combined 260 worth of RAW/MLV all together because 3 out of the 5 cards had mlv_re.tmp files (If I can recall correctly) and was prompted to 'replace files or keep all' which I knew I had to keep all otherwise I could lose Audio though I'll double check if need to.

Post by: Danne on February 11, 2015, 11:06:17 AM
Are there sync issues?
The audio is chopped of in the end but just a few frames. This is to fit with resolve. I could however skip that part when creating PRORES files. Either I let the file continue the extra frames which will let the file be alittle too long in the end or I can have ffmpeg cut the audio to fit the shorter movie file. Can you upload some examples ProRes for me to check?
The rec_tmp file I don,t think would be needed for audio with the files.

I'm not quite sure yet actually but sure let me pick a few MLV ProRes .mov's for me to upload into Vimeo overnight and have it to you by tomorrow.

Guess it wouldn't spit out .mov's for MLV with spanned files?

I'll try it again overnight as well.

It supposed to take spanned files and create a mov with those dng files. Not working?
You could dopbox some prores examples? I,d like to inspect the audio issues.

Should be fine. Have a good broadband connection here. Did you get the spanned mlv files to create a .mov files or was that a problem?

Sounds fine now all of a sudden? Strange. I guess it was because I was looking through .mov's and playing them in Previews while your app was running in the background which could have cause the choppy playback with the audio?

Here I uploaded a few ProRes from MLV's... good thing we both have decent broadband connections!  8)

Regarding MLV spanned files after 2nd & 3rd  attempts...

In response to your latest update from this AM regarding long spanned files.

Seems to work well for a MLV with over 7k DNG's and spanned files are placed in their original folder respectively.

Ah sorry thought I was doing it in the proper way of placing the MLV's in the PRORES folder to spit out .mov's, right?  :o

Also tried again with the non-cr2hdr-r_Long (just cr2hdr-r 2.1) and still wouldn't produced spanned MLV's (over 6k dng's) as expected per your suggestion...

I know you mentioned that you will be working on a fix sometime this week or whenever's convenient for you.

MLRV spits out ProRes 4444 HQ just fine but Audio seems to run shorter than the footage itself by several seconds towards the end.

Hopefully that won't be the issue with your next update!  ;)

cr2hdr-r 2.6


- Added dcraw compile from N/A, thanks!
- MLV files to ProRes. Should work with all combinations, dual iso, audio, big files and so on. Please test if possible
- Audio. should work now.
- ProRes should be 444 now.

Todo
- Raw to ProRes. Same as MLV. It is working but bigger files might have a problem transcoding to ProRes. Try if possible.
- Waiting for a Lut from Andy600 to fit with dual iso ProRes files.

Now that's a massive update there you got... Wish I could just quit this job for a day and go home to play with this toy!

I'll have my 2006 MBP with me (in case I have downtime at work) then definitely will give this a try!

Would it also work with MLV's produced from FRPS (Timelapse) if I were to use this app?

THANKS AGAIN!

Just got home. Gotta get up early again tmw for work.

*feedbacks*

Definitely organizes files into respective folders better. (goes into PRORES folder this time)  :D

Currently spitting ProRes 444 HQ is definitly taking a bit longer than usual which is to be expected.

Looking good so far! (will check out .mov file to verify Audio tmw AM before work)

(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=https%3A%2F%2Ffarm8.staticflickr.com%2F7383%2F15905521613_9c662aecda_n.jpg&hash=8b3d8d41342d6a386d6fb77bfd362bd2) (https://flic.kr/p/qevXrg)

Perhaps depending on the projects itself obviously -- if we could use an option to choose 422 or 444 or just plain good old DNG's, that would be killer!

Will also test out HDR Raw along with Dual-ISO again to verify the brightness via .mov files as well as MLV's from FRSP.

Thanks again and be in touch brother!

Plain old dngs is outside the Prores folder still right?
Optional stuff could be done in different folders. Dont know about selectors and stuff. Might put in alternative folders within the ProRes folders.
Also curious what could be done about whitebalance. Right now it is on dcraw auto.

How much shorter?
Ffmpeg does a cut from which file is shortest, either audio or video. I could skip this cutting feature and video will probably be i tiny bit shorter than audio.

Which commands do you use for dcraw? dcraw uses color matrices from adobe dng converter but I think someone said in another thread that they're outdated. Does -w work better? On a sidenote, there was an updated version (9.23.0) posted yesterday, I'll see if I can compile that one soon.

Question/Theory:

Do you often find yourself having to locate which RAW/MLV was shot in HDR video because if I throw them all in PRORES folder it won't do the HDR render unless I separate them which I expected but just a thought... could it be possible for it to detect HDR videos if I were to throw it in PRORES folder and automatically spits it into the HDR folder?

Otherwise I'll just view the MLV/RAW's through MLRV first in beforehand which works fine atm. I don't mind, really!  :D

Just a thought... and I'm currently testing the latest '2.6d_wb_no_short' and looking forward to Monday's update! lol

cr2hdr-r_2.6d_wb_no_short.app
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4tCJMlOYfird09lcXdvQnh5dkE/view?usp=sharing

COuld be inconsistencies with mlv-files then since It is not set on auto.

Could you perhaps run a version with the auto wb set  with this and see which one is more correct?
cOuld be auto actually produces more linear results than native MLV wb. Not sure.

Correct -- hence the vimeo clip or I can upload original files for you to see what I mean?

Can I just move the current .mov out from the prores folder and run the app again with earlier version per your suggestion -- would that work as it should, right?

however I will test them again with both versions in the AM to verify!

Eyes are bloodshot.

Burns like a mother...

*EDIT*

Actually I was wrong on that. I may have accidentally clicked on the older version application icon on my dock. My wrong. (it's rather confusing at times when I'm trying out all sorts of versions and the info still saying '1.2' so I have to keep reminding myself to rename the app name with extension so I know which is which. Argh!)

Cool.
Got to make sure dcraw actually is choosing the mlv wb and not defaulting to an auto wb but that would be shown in a comparison. I will do some testing tomorrow if you are busy. No hurry. No need for uploads but do check that mlv file and dcraw wb are the same. You can compare by opening a dng in acr.

Tried the trick that I was hoping to work. Deleted old .mov file and placed the Folder (w converted DNG's) into ProRes folder and run the app again.

Just starts spitting out .mov's which is nice.

I doubt a change of +100 would make a difference from dcraw auto (or let alone be the reason of inconsistent WB)? I went through the entire DNG's to see if WB was inconsistence through it all but stays at constant 5100, strange it doesn't look like that in video?

Well time will only tell while your 'cr2hdr_long.app' is currently rendering the same MLV from the video I showed earlier. Hopefully it'll be more consistence this time!

*Next time I should use a grey card in this particular shot with tungsten light coming in from the lamp in the back behind him along with a 27" inch monitor from his right hand side that produces cooler (blue desktop wallpaper) colors so I set my 5D3 to 5100 in order to compensate for his face (although the background is too warm but NOT sure if this could be a factor regarding dcraw auto being 'confused' somehow?* <--- I also thought this scenario wouldn't be a good way to test dcraw auto as well?

WB Comparisons Part 2 ( cr2hdr-r / MLRV ):
https://vimeo.com/119781083 (https://vimeo.com/119781083)

DNG's were converted via cr2hdr-r in case you were curious.

Also I've given up testing with this particular MLV file (has too many spanned files) so from here on out I'll be using smaller sizes in varieties (Dual-iSO, RAW/MLV, HDR Raw, etc)

One thing I thought it was strange was the fact that I somehow lost one of the two RAW files (shot in HDR Video) which were placed into the HDR_RAW_MLV folder before running app the 2nd time and it produced strange files. Like the name would change on one of the MLV file. Good thing these were just crappy footages I shot in HDR for beta testing purposes!  ;D

Will try again today to see if I can produce this bug with all three different versions that I have (cr2hdr_r_2.6d, wb_no_short, _long) unless told otherwise if that would help narrow down this bug regarding HDR videos?

Thought we were allowed to shoot HDR videos in RAW/MLV and not just H.264, correct?

Im still working on the HDR-raw workflow. The originals should move to a folder within Originals folder though. The movie file created will be deleted and the merged files will produce a new version. I have  a version coming soon.
Regarding dcraw wb I think mlv is set to some stuck aSshot numbers so migt look for a different solution. I was thinking of grabbing the first multiplier settings from dcraw auto and apply this to the prores file. Problem right now I cant get tee or awk to print out the numbers to a txt file altough theyre clearly showing in terminal. Strange.
You could test some short mlv files but maybe better wait for the next beta. It, s your call.

No problem. Sounds good. I ended up just using all your ProRes (non dual-ISO) & instead used your DNG's (from Dual-ISO) and exported .mov's from MLRV and combined them all together in PP and currently exporting Dailies from the last BTS I shot to drop off to the client.

Also doing the same (on 2006 MBP) via MLVFS just to see the comparisons.

May be too large to handle though... (260+ GB total of footage)

cr2hdr-r 2.7
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4tCJMlOYfirSGhONUszLUtYcEE/view?usp=sharing

- Linear auto white balance when creating ProRes files

The app picks the wb multipliers from the first file and applies that auto white balance setting to the whole file. SHould prevent from wb variations.

- HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV

as it says. Put all files you want to create hdr files from in this folder.

All else is running as before, dual iso and such.

The app should be more robust. Regarding MLV to ProRes they should run all kinds, coming from dual iso, with or without audio and so on. Also big files should work.

Raw to ProRes works but there is more to be done here. Huge files might be an issue.

Still working for getting some sort of lut applied to dualiso files.
Audio might need some rework.

This is beta ;)

Not really. Dual iso is still running in parent folder and is more or less automated. If it is not a dual iso file it will detect what it is and progress accordingly. HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV is an extra folder/feature to try out. Film in at least 48, 50 or 60 fps when you do :)

It,s merging the frames as when filming in regular h.264 .MOV setting. Only difference you have to film in 48, 50 or 60 fps also in raw or mlv. When transcoding in post it merges the frames creating a new file in 30, 25, or 24 fps depending on original file. It also corrects the distorted aspect ratio.
It,s more or less for fun but Jerrykil created a nice script which also merges audio to the final file.

According to Andy600

Quote
A 3D lut for linear to log conversion is not recommended as it relies heavily on interpolation, doesn't map code values correctly and should only ever be used for end-to-end raw grading.


Shortcomings with ffmpeg lut implementation make me go for experimenting with the means available. A work in progress. Might not work in the end.

Experimenting with inserting a lut to dual iso to ProRes files. Since ffmpeg won,t take 1d luts( Thanks to Andy600 for checking out), I found one lut which I liked to start off with that actually worked. It is a lut called ML_RAW_to_LOG_LUT.CUBE which Andy600 created and put up in a forumlink here. In conjunction with curves in photoshop, a preset which also can be inserted to ffmpeg together with a lut, I think I got some progress in getting a good file to work with. HEre are some comparisons.

Examples are graded printscreens so quality only for fast viewing purposes.

As for know there is no lut provided and the one I got is not optimal. Andy600 will hand me over a few alternatives to look into, after that we,ll see if it is practical enough to implement. Things that could occur is ffmpeg lut implementation won,t be good enough or if it takes too long rendering to ProRes with the lut inmplemented. LEt,s wait and see after I checked some luts when I get them.

Hi guys!

- Two updates.

- Multithreading RAW/MLV to ProRes encoding. (My computer fan is singing) I leave no warranties if anything happens here! Be careful. My computer still working  8).
- Implemented a really fine lut, created by Andy600, when transcoding to ProRes with dual iso raw/mlv files.
The lut is specially made for use with cr2dhr dual iso movie files. There are drawbacks with ffmpeg lut implementation.

Important
Quote
"3d luts are really not recommended for this type of thing because they have insufficient code values and produce rounding errors - colors can also be clipped because they are debayered in FFMpeg to sRGB (an output referred colorspace)"Andy600.

I am using ffmpeg with dng files piped from dcraw. White balance is set to auto. The philosophy here is for fast automated ready to use ProRes files coming from dual iso. I think it is achieved much thanks to Andys lut. You be the judge. Andy provides three luts in the packackage. Inserted to the script is the "Andy600_lin_to_log.cube" lut. Below some examples. Beutiful dynamic range.
Thanks a lot Andy600!

Check out the dynamic range coming from dual iso files. Amazing.

Going from dual iso original - Andy600_lin_to_log.cube - Andy600_lin_to_REC709.cube

Post by: DeafEyeJedi on February 25, 2015, 07:21:43 PM
Nice!!! Also seems the proper order of renderings per 3.4 as it follows:

1) CR2 files
2) ProRes folder
3) RAW_MLV_Mov_HDR

Is this always going to be this way?

Asking because if I wanted to see HDR results right away -- then I would separate HDR into another parent folder & run a 2nd copy version of 3.4!

That way it'll render the HDR videos right away while the other will just do its thing...

Basically like run two separate 3.4's seamlessly at the same time... Worth it?

cr2hdr-r v 3.8b
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4tCJMlOYfirZEJGaFVoaFdrSnc/view?usp=sharing

This beta gives control over wb with the help of a greycard. When including a silent picture DNG of neutral white or grey the dcraw will measure the middle of the "greycard" silent DNG and apply that to the files you selected in a subfolder. This way you will have consistently control over white balance. Check the video.
Be careful, it is all beta, no warranties.

White balance control

Got an ok from Visioncolor to use the BMDFilm to VisionLOG-RAW.cube on regular RAW/MLV to ProRes files. Let,s test and see. It is in the version.

After running 3.8b twice to make sure it gets all the files properly. Only to find a few in HDR and a few in ProRes seem to STILL have few .mov's with popping up "Quicktime Can't convert" errors... not sure why though?

Also notice the auto stretch for slo mo's don't always work and some come out stretched out weirdly too.

Is the file empty the isn,t being able to read in quicktime? Sometimes the transcoder will do this. I,ll see if I can narrow down the problem.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4tCJMlOYfirV1RsaGNYd0VJUHM/view?usp=sharing


- Added lut support. add lut inside the PRORES folder or in subfolders together with the RAW/MLV file(up to three luts works)
- Added the Andy600_lin_to_REC709.cube when transcoding regular ProRes files. These files looks so clean and good. Thanks Andy600.
- Rearranged folder structure a little

About luts. Up to three extra 3dluts can be added. When running the app the first time it creates some additional folder. Inside the PRORES folder some luts and a text description will be provided. For instance you could preview luts in the "lut3d_lab folder". Info about this in the text file.

Dual iso RAW/MLV to ProRes comes hardcoded with Andy600_lin_to_log.cube
Regular RAW/MLV comes hardcoded with Andy600_lin_to_REC709.cube

Beware of limitation in lut handling in ffmpeg and also difference between dual iso RAW and MLV. Gonna check on this later.

I'm relatively new to using the dual ISO feature and am currently using the windows script that utilizes VirtualDub and Enfuse to extract the A & B frames to get C. This has been a slow process since I'm on a Mac and have to run VirtualBox to make this work. I've read through this entire thread and am under the impression that I can use cr2hdr-r for a similar, more logical workflow but seem to be missing something.

I am simply shooting dual ISO .MOV files, not RAW. I've followed the install directions (even watched the YouTube install video), when run the app and point to the folder with my test.mov file, the new folder structure is created but no automator tasks seem to continue. In fact I never see the gear icon in the top menu bar.

I'm clearly missing something here. It was late, after a long day when I read through this thread, so I may have missed something. Any help will be appreciated.

Dual iso .MOV? Do you mean HDR?
Which version are you using?

if 1.8 you just put the .MOV in the folder where you want your files.

If running experimental builds you first run the app as it will create needed folders and then quit. You then put your .MOV in the HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV folder and then run the app from the parent folder. NOT from the created sufolder(HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV).

Are you with me?

Yes I meant HDR. I was working with the latest two experimental builds. After your suggestion I was able to get the process where it appeared to be working but after about 15 minutes, no additional files had been created and the progress in the status bar remained at 0%.

I used 1.8 and everything seems to be splitting and merging fine. Thanks!

After struggling to figure out why 5.0 stops running after it completes the Lut3D_Lab folder (Although I had already ran the command shortcut for Lut3D_Lab prior to which worked well!) and then tried again after emptying out that particular folder... Voila!

Lut3D_Lab folder is definitely a nice addition and it's worth checking prior to rendering with a certain LUT applied as a whole.

Yeah, the idea is that when you organized all your files you could stuff some files in the lub lab folder and as long as you,re in there the files won,t start transcoding. At least inside ProRes folder. After you take them out you start the app and leave.

Title: cr2hdr-r OSX batch conversion app (dng, CR2 ,MLV, RAW, HDR video)
Post by: DeafEyeJedi on March 07, 2015, 11:30:11 PM
I'm out away from home atm coaching little league baseball practice. Then the Wife will be taking me out to dinner afterwards. So I'll be able to do it as soon as I get home.

In my own recent memory if I can recall correctly that each 3 of these files goes as it follows ISO 1600, ISO 100, Dual-ISO @ 100/1600...

But that's just from what I can think of and could be wrong.

Plus I was using a manual lens -- 14mm t3.1 and I think I left it wide open or may have closed it down to 4-5.6 (it was just a quick test for slo-mo's aspect ratios purposes) so sorry Danne I don't mean to keep you up waiting on me!!!

After all, I doubt this may be a bug on your end. It could be due to this particular lens?

cr2hdr-r 4.6
Dual iso RAW/MLV to ProRes comes hardcoded with Andy600_lin_to_log.cube
Regular RAW/MLV comes hardcoded with Andy600_lin_to_REC709.cube
@Danne I want to try out this workflow for Dual ISO/HRD Raw , but I see you have Hard Coded Luts Can you make Optional ?
I prefer to do Color Space myself or is there a older build of this app that's not Hard Coded with Luts ?
Thanks

Hi Reddeercity. THis version is without the hardcoded luts.
cr2hdr-r_5.3_all_no_lut
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4tCJMlOYfirYzA3eUloZmVDNVU/view?usp=sharing

You need to uninstall and install the new files with the new scripts. If you only want to change the "bmcc_ixml_luts" folder than grab it from the downloaded pack and put it in /usr/bin/bmcc_ixml_luts.

You can add up to three luts simultaneously.

I added the possible formats that ffmpeg is suppose to support
https://ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg-filters.html#lut3d-1

Highres luts don,t seem to work so please report if you get some good luts working here. Some luts will probably not work.

Also treat it as beta. It is multithreaded and needs to be tested. Could have missed a letter somewhere in the script, a lot of text :)

Here,s your file converted by the way. It looks good but you really can,t go under 50 or 60 fps if you don,t use some interpolation method in post. Try 50 fps in raw. Could give some nice results.

currently testing 5.3f with same files for comparison purposes.

I also learned (once again) that I accidentaly forgot to turn off slo-mo's (instead of 50/60fps I should have done so in 24/25/30 when it comes to crop-mode -- D'OH!!!)

Otherwise you'll get a whole bunch of lava's flowing down upon over your keyboard...  :P

You could try to move all the binaries manually to the folder.
Hit cmd shift g. Then print /usr/bin.
In this folder drag all files and folders from the binary folder into /usr/bin.

I am not sure why you cant get the files right so it might not work even doing this.

No installing really, only moving a bunch of binaries with the command script. You remove them with uninstall.
You could try installing from different location. Maybe works.

@EpicMedia:

Per your main Mac -- sounds like you accidentally deleted the files that were meant to be installed.

I've ran into this situation before.

Just simply download latest version from link and reinstall in order for you to run command.install with proper files.

So, with the latest version, first page I added the "cr2hdr-r_speed_boost" function. As for now it will start transcoding two-three files at the time in ProRes and HDR folder and if you want to kick in your computer to work more simply add speed_boost :).
Right click on the parent folder while converting and select speed boost.

Thanks for sharing. Wouldn,t find those bugs as quickly otherwise.

I updated the first post with a fixed version "cr2hdr-r_5.3k_s"
Should move spanned files correctly.
About the speed boost I would recommend one extra push. Can,t say what will happen if more repeats are started.

The flickering under the table comes from enfuse. There might be settings to tweak but I don,t know how. You could try getting a flat look from start to see if that will give more even results. If shooting raw you can xport nice raw prores from Mlrawviewer.

You export to ProRes .MOV with Mlrawviewer and then you run the .MOV file in the HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV folder in cr2hdr-r. Will work fine.

I know this is for the older version but may be worth noting regarding MLV Dual-ISO conversions...

5.3j_s:
https://vimeo.com/122078705 (https://vimeo.com/122078705)


Also regarding 5.3j_s -- there were few other strange bugs such as not all dng's were converted as well as another file showing random xml file being put in thus  corrupting a frame during .mov as well as another file showing strange pattern of unconverted Dual-iso dng's as well as missing an MLV file somehow. May have disappeared! lol

Nice one. How were they postprocessed? Did you skip the ProRes making?

Just uploaded the .mov's... took awhile earlier, sorry!

They were processed with Andy's_lin_to_REC709_full_range LUT.

and no I did not skip the ProRes making.  8)

I'm off tomorrow and Monday so I plan on making time for Audio testings per your request.

Talk soon!

New version up
cr2hdr-r_5.3p_s(beta)
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4tCJMlOYfirQlRIQ0pOUVQwdG8/view?usp=sharing

- Exactly matched audio for embed in davinci resolve. It counts amount of frames extracted from mlv_dump divided with frame rate and calculates the seconds and shortens accordingly. This has nothing to do with audio sync! Only matches the sometimes too long audio track recorded with MLV format.

Ran a bunch of files and they all transcoded and worked in Davinci resolve with embedded audio. Most framerates are supported. If audio don,t embed most likely I have to provide some additional audio info in xml.

Please run the app shortcut from outside the downloaded folder. Exif data(MLV) won,t apply to converted dual iso DNG files otherwise.

@dubzeebass:

Which video are you referring this to? Because I do still get these if I do not use crop-mode....

This one in particular shows tons of aliasing if you look at the semi truck rig trailer as well as the parking space lines (as to be expected because it's not shot in crop-mode):

https://vimeo.com/122078704 (https://vimeo.com/122078704)

I guess it comes down to certain scenes based on the set location... ya know? Also I use a circular profiler filter on the 16-35L II so not sure if that could play a role in reducing the aliasing effect?

Hi thanks for your work!
After i have processed a mlv file with CR2HDR . I find that the dng files produced are 1 dark fram and then 1 bright frame and so on as filmed. How do I proceed to make a HDR video from that? Thankful for help!
Best regards

Hdr works that way.Dual iso and hdr are working very differently so I recommend trying out one of them at the time.
Title: cr2hdr-r OSX batch conversion app (dng, CR2 ,MLV, RAW, HDR video)
Post by: DeafEyeJedi on March 23, 2015, 06:19:45 AM
From my experience with various testings... It is definitely best to NOT combine them both together (HDR + Dual-ISO) in which I previously have in the past by an accident and it's not so pretty...

Pick one or the other...

Hi! Thanks for you answer DeafEyeJedi and Danne.
I am new to HDR video and if i decide to go with only the HDR movie function and the result is a first dark frame and then a bright frame and so on, how do i process that on a mac to make it a viewable movie?
Second Q. Is it possible to shoot mlv-files with only dual iso checked in expo menu? Is that the prefered way to shoot movies?

I think that having dual iso checked will give me the right framerate since the hdr-fuction will give me half the framerate since it merges 2 frames. Is that correct?
Best regards Pettermannen
Title: Re: cr2hdr-r OSX batch conversion app (dng, CR2 ,MLV, RAW, HDR video)
Post by: Danne on March 23, 2015, 03:58:40 PM
For HDR you can do like this. Just put either an .MOV .RAW or .MLV in the folder(5.3 version)

Dual iso will work best in zoom mode http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=12796.msg126471#msg126471
. You film like any other moviemode and postprocess can be made in either parent folder or in PRORES folder. It will detect if dual iso or not.

On the first page you have the experimental(5.3) and the more stable release 1.8. They work a little differently. 1.8 don,t have any PRORES or RAW_MLV hdr conversion mode.

Hi! Some progress in dnxhd and ffmpeg. Found a setting for 10-bit 440M! DOn,t know if this is overkill or not. Not really sure if it,s an alternative to ProRes444 from ffmpeg but hope you guys would shed some light here.

*Further progress on this theme will be on the cr2hdr-r thread. Got carried away in dnxhd discussion here, realize this thread is about cinelog.

I thought these comparisons were quite interesting because I noticed that the highlights were slightly clipped in the dnxHD10bit-440 as oppose to the ProRes444...

Is there a reason for that in particular?

Just curious...

P.S. I quoted your post from the Cinelog thread respectively in effort to keep from making a mess. Hope that's okay with you.

Havn,t checked the dnxhd 10-bit too much yet but you can be right about the clipping. It should be dnxhd 10-bit 422 and probably it can,t outrun the ProRes444.

(Kör engelska så andra kan hänga med)
I use 5d MK2 and latest build and when i shoot with dual iso activated in expo mode. I get a message that i have to record raw in movie mode.
When i choose raw movie mode instead of mlv the iso is not alternating in the preview and the dng´s are not in dual iso. I therefore assume that
i can´t create dual iso dngs with interlaced scan lines when i shoot movies with 5d. Is that correct? If i shoot stills the cr2´s got scan lines though.

I also imported  a HDR recording with MLV in after effects with MLVFS (with bright and dark frames) I exported a prores movie from aftereffects with alternating frames and followed your link to the video on how to process a .mov file with cr2hdr-5.3. I put that movie both in the mov.mlv.raw folder and also in the proves folder. But nothing happened when i hit the button. Does it have to be mov file directly from the 5d?

It still puzzles me on how i should process my mlv recordings (HDR video). And what to do with movies exported from aftereffects with alternating frames. please help me.

Hi Danne,

I've been trying to test Magic Lantern Dual-ISO (for photography only,NOT videos)for my 70D - took me almost 12 hours (not straight 12 hrs or i'd go bonkers lol)  and I saw this forum.   I notice this forum mainly focus on the RAW Videos so I hope my problem should hopefully (hehe) be an easier fix for you :D

initially I installed the cr2hdr-r-1.8 zip files (from your 1st post in this forum) - I followed the instructions to run the install.command and copied the cr2hdr.app to my desktop - I double-clicked the app and point it to my directory containing the CR2 files - the DNG files were created but for some reason it won't render - Photoshop said it could not parse the DNG files.

So I continued reading your thread and saw you uploaded the latest cr2hdr-r zip (version 5.3-s ).  after downloading I thought i should run the uninstall command on the 1,8 version, then do the 5.3 install.command.    I was surprised it didn't ask for a password so I tried to close the terminal windows and rerun the 5.3 install.command.  Then I am getting these errors now :((

Hi Danne,

Sorry I just saw a post from EpicMedia from a few weeks ago who had the same problem - it seems like he eventually was able to install it on a different machine.  I on the other hand only have one Mac machine :( 

i saw you suggested in your post#271 in this forum as follows:

You could try to move all the binaries manually to the folder.
Hit cmd shift g. Then print /usr/bin.
In this folder drag all files and folders from the binary folder into /usr/bin.

am wondering if you could kindly share a more detailed way to do this?  from looking at the errors it seems like its trying to copy/rename  the ./Binaries_cr2hdr-r/* to /usr/bin/* but the ./Binaries_cr2hdr-r/ path is missing?  From my limited unix knowledge I could just right click on the "install this first" folder and select service> New terminal from folder...   after that I don't know which command I should execute ...  please bear with me and appreciate your help.

Post by: Danne on March 30, 2015, 01:23:20 AM
You run the install command from the folder it,s in. Did you move anything after unzipping?

You could try to unzip or redownload the app and run the install command again. It looks like the binary folder is empty? If it doesn,t work I suggest you create a screen recording of your install steps and pm me a link.
About 70D for now you can run the script from here https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4tCJMlOYfirSTNNeV9JLXBkMms/view?usp=sharing
after you have converted your files to DNG files. As soon as a new version is compiled I try to put in the app.

If you move files manually you grab them all from the binary folder and drag/drop them into /usr/bin. I wouldn,t suggest this if you don,t really know what you,re doing.

Hi Danne -THANK YOU - actually yes I did realize that before I found your reply - I found the binaries were empty (cause I ran install already) so I had to re-download again.

But this time, I downloaded the cr2hdr-r_5.3l_s version (not the latest, but I believe it should work for my photography CR2 files).  i ran install.command for the binaries after install and it was successful!

I replaced the cr2hdr.app with this new version, and double-clicked the app and pointed to my folder containing the two PHOTO CR2 files.

I have read your posts so I knew there would be those new (PRORES and HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV) folders created to handle the RAW or MLV videos - but I was expecting to but I don't see DNG files created :(  I wonder where should I find my DNG files?

Again, appreciate your comments!   

BTW is there a way to post screenshots or attachments here ?   I do not have a dropbox account :(

Hi Danne,

Thanks again for your input - was just getting ready for bed when I saw your reply. 

I reran cr2hdr-r.app as you suggested and - voila - within one minute the DNG files were generated (and the CR2 files went to ORIGINAL folder as expected).

However, it is strange that when I try to open the DNG file via Photoshop - Photoshop issues this error message: Could not complete your request because the file-format module cannot parse the file.

I am attaching one of the CR2 file and its corresponding  DNG file as follows -
IMG_7442.CR2 file - https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwB_poTzzVK8RElTQ2Z1R0lndU0/view?usp=sharing
IMG_7442.DNG file - https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwB_poTzzVK8bEtQamZKbDgtR1U/view?usp=sharing

Thank you so much!  Will check back in the morning :)

For now you have to run this script in the same folder as your DNG files.Doubleclick the command.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4tCJMlOYfirSTNNeV9JLXBkMms/view?usp=sharing

It applies missing color matrices for your camera.
I think N/A is compiling a cr2hdr20bit which will include the 70D.

Hurrah - the 70D_color_matrix.command worked - and big thanks to you, Danne!!!
I can now open the DNG files (no more errors!)  - although I still do see some noise but its not as bad as before.  I am still figuring out how to make my dual ISO CR2 shots cleaner (must be something with my exposure setting).

Will play around with ML extensively again this weekend :-)   I will be trying the HDR bracketing and time-lapse next - I think these may be easier to test than dual ISO :D

Updated first post with version 5.5 both with luts and no hardcoded luts.

added

- latest cr2hdr20bit - should work with 70D (Thanks to N/A, compiling and I think it,s Nikfreak,s version)
- latest dcraw (Thanks to N/A)
- updated mlv transcoding now also adding the color matrices the other updated workflows/apps are using.
- dampened the brightness in dcraw for the hardcoded lut when transcoding regular raw/mlv files so should look really good now.

Got a version working with white balance, brightness, combining luts coming up but wanted to get version above out of the way first :)

Thing is I hardcoded a lot of fps but there are "inbetweens" that will miss the correct fps. I could make some awk, grep for and write the actual fps but will take some time since I don,t really know to do it yet.
However, if you send me the different fps that you use I will update the xml presets.

Tried hastily creating some luts in davinci resolve and added to the Prores file during transcoding in cr2hdr-r. It can take up to three luts at the same time. First clip is straight out of the box.

Updated again to version 5.6_s

- Davinci resolve and folder embedded audio. Should work with all frame rates chosen in cam (no more hardcoded fps xml files).
- removed "lut_lab" folder. Instead a "lut_previews" command will be provided. Just double click for one frame preview. Works with or without preview 3d lut.

A new betaversion
cr2hdr-r_5.8_lut_lab
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4tCJMlOYfirLUdyS3pLMGJXMlE/view?usp=sharing

- If adobe dng converter is installed it effectively reduces CR2 dual iso files to less than half size. Lossless.
- Changing brightness, white balance, working and combining up to 15 preset luts ("mylooks"). Combining log and rec presets.


Biggest news is the creative possibility to combine "mylooks" and changing brightness and white balance. It is all in betaphase so don,t know what it will bring. For now there are 6 "mylooks" 3d cubes in the "my_presets" folder but please make your own since these are only examples. You can keep up to 15 "mylooks" stored and combine them freely by calling them from a created preview png file.

All is done through writing command in a created png file. This is created with "lut_preview.command" provided in the PRORES folder. You either create a preview png for every raw/mlv or a master PNG which will create the setting for all files in the folder. It is all really hard to explain but I tried recording some sort of workflow which I put up on youtube.



Needed
- Davinci resolve 3d luts - Would be nice to have 15 solid presets luts to provide in the my_presets folder. Feel free to post examples.
- 5 log and corresponding rec709 luts, created as 3d luts(not 1D luts, won,t work in this workflow)

Here is the command list:

command_line

brightness (b10 being brightest)
b-10 to b10

white balance (w1 being coldest)
w1 to w5

preset looks(up to 15, 5 looks provided. Change them as you like)
mylook01 to mylook15

log (log05 flattest)
log01 to log05

rec (should fit with corresponding log. Example log01rec01
rec01 to rec05

1 - create a png frame with the provided lut_previews.command by double clicking next to a  raw/mlv file

2 - apply commands as you like by renaming the png file.

example 1
[filename]b5w1.png (will give a very bright and cold image)

example 2
[filename]b-8w5log01.png (will give a dark file very warm and with log applied)

example 3
[filename]mylook01mylook03b2w3.png (will add to of your preset looks brighten image 2 steps and white balance 3)


If you want to preview the result simply run the lut_preview command once again with the png file next your raw/mlv file and a master PNG will be created. If you like the look copy the commands to the master PNG file which will be the file to be used when transcoding batches of files.

If you want to keep alternate looks for each file you can leave the png files without creating a master PNG file and the raw/mlv will add each png look separately for each file.

Can you be more specific? What other converters have you tried? Camera? Have you tried to reproduce the issue? Do you have a sample file?

*FEEDBACKS*

Good to be back... Thanks for the wake-up call!  8)

Ran out and shot a quick nighttime streetlight test with/without Dual-ISO in MLV w Audio.

Apparently with 5.6_s beta, some but not all were imported w synced audio after render from ur app. Strange?

(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=https%3A%2F%2Ffarm8.staticflickr.com%2F7725%2F17096624175_de5624b79e_n.jpg&hash=fed0ce7f5960666e5cd2dff8c72fceda) (https://flic.kr/p/s3LEJk)

No big deal for me... I just thought it was worth noting, however I'll need to double check again with MLRawViewer to verify if I can get audio during playback. (will get back to you on that one!)

Shot in MLV on 5D3 w 24-105L in 24fps @ 1920 x 960 (This was a quick test so yes I know I could have done it in full HD)

Dual-ISO was done in 100/1600, respectively!

ProRes straight out from the app as it is:

https://vimeo.com/124601584 (https://vimeo.com/124601584)

Keep in mind that I only used the Andy's LUT (Full Range) in combination with non-Dual ISO MLV's as well (I think you mentioned that I shouldn't do that but didn't want to run the app  twice with two different LUTS for each, ya know?)

or Maybe I could have just threw in both for all and see if the app's smart enough to recognize which is what? possible or no? LoL  :P

Thanks again, @Danne!

Now with the latest beta (5.8_s) which comes with brightness, wb, etc... controls -- oh so sexy!!! Perhaps I should run the same MLV files again and post them for comparisons?

Nice clip :)
One thing I noticed when conversion is overlapping to the next day from 23:59 to 00:00 It could happen that it will rename and start conversion again. Often creates a double without audio.

I think I found a way to extract the correct wb multipliers through dcraw which will mean more accuracy in white balance handling. Just have to rewrite a few things in lut_lab version.

reworked whitebalance handling. Create png with lut_previews.command. Choose between w01 to w20 w01 being the coldest kelvin.

example: [filename]w03.png

version cr2hdr-r_6.2_lut_lab
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4tCJMlOYfirMEhSejU3Mm9xZnM/view?usp=sharing

More white balance stuff.

- Including a CR2 still photo will make use of the white balance from camera and apply this to the ProRes file. Place the CR2 file next to the files you are transcoding in the PRORES folder. Check the movie below.

Example. If you create a custom white balance in camera and take a still CR2 from that scene before shooting. Adding the file in transcoding to ProRes will give you that exact white balance. Sweet.

White balance tools right now are following.

- Auto wb. (default when not using any other alternative. Still linear for each file).
- DNG  (add a silent picture DNG of the shooting environment or from a greycard).
- dng (add a dng file from the mlv/raw file and it will use this wb for all your mlv/raw files You have to extract a dng first of course).
- PNG (use the lut_previews.command to generate a preview and select between w01 to w20 for Kelvin temperature control.
- CR2 (add a CR2 still photo to use white balance recorded in camera. Use it as a master wb settings for all files or place files in specified folders. Watch movie below)

Dude I just woke up and man... 6.0 is definitely CAFFEINE and won't be needing coffee anymore! (actually never have liked it or needed it) HAHA!

It's nice to be able to just snap a photo and apply the CR2 file next to the MLV's to get the proper WB. So NICE and crazy!

I'm gonna run it again with the nighttime files again (since I didn't take a photo CR2 so I'll just use the dng from MLV for now)

Hopefully that good old blue border line is gone for good! lol

Thanks again, D!

There is no hardcoded lut on regular mlv/raw files. I suggest you include the CANON5D-UEX-SL.cube or the Andy600_lin_to_REC709.cube from the cr2hdr_lut_lab folder next to the files. Or you can call the logs from a PNG file. log01.PNG will be the first, log02.PNG the second suggestion. The Andy600_lin_to_REC709.cube is a bit on brightside since it,s intended for dual iso primarily. If you create a PNG file you can also include that and set it to b-7 or b-8 even to lower brightness. Would look like b-8.PNG. Capital letters for master_png.

If you skip the .cube you could use a png like this. b-7log01.PNG or b-7log02.PNG.

Getting some decent results with ProRes workflow and 3d luts created in DaVinci resolve lite. Created a log 3d lut and a contrasty one to match the view I get from the camera. When including a CR2 still photo you will get control over color. Workflow is to include the luts and the CR2 still photo in the PRORES folder together with your mlv/raw files.

If anyone likes to try here are the luts. Don,t forget to create a white balance CR2 file to go with these two luts.

Adding a CR2 only works with version cr2hdr-r 6.2 here

Version 6.6_lut_lab
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4tCJMlOYfirTERtNWVQMV9OdGM/view?usp=sharing

Including 15 preset master_PNG files. Simply view the look of the PNG file and put the desired preset next to your mlv/raw files. The 3d luts that are called from in the PNG are all created in da vinci resolve except the andy600 luts.
As always. 3d luts are lowres compared to 1d luts. My goal is to get nice flat .mov files to work with in preferred NLE and with professional 1D luts after I get my prores files transcoded from the app. Also included ability to use noise reduction by writing a value to the PNG file you choose. Value goes from denoise01 to denoise10.

example mylook03_cr2hdr-r_dan_log_03.PNG add denoise01 for lowest setting of denoising. example mylook03_cr2hdr-r_dan_log_03denoise01.PNG

Preferred workflow is to add a CR2 file( for white balance) and either a master_PNG or up to three 3d luts to you files.

Hi Danne,

I have a question as to when the cr2hdr-r.app converts CR2 to DNG files (still images, not movies).

I was finally able to test some dual-iso images this weekend.  Two weeks ago when I initially installed ML I was able to create a few dual iso CR2 images, put them into a folder, then I ran cr2hdr-r.app and pointed it to the new folder, then almost immediately the cr2hdr-r.app creates three sub-folders (PRORES, ORIGINAL, and HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV  folders) inside my folder ****plus*** I saw that the CR2 files were also converted to DNG.    However, today, I tried the same steps with my new set of DUAL ISO CR2 images (putting them into another new folder,  and run the cr2hdr-r.app against this new folder I created today).   The PRORES, ORIGINAL and HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV subfolders were created as expected, but the CR2 images were not converted.  Could you advise me as to what I may be doing wrong? I know that when the CR2s are being converted to DNG, the CR2 files are immediately moved to the ORIGINAL folder.   I checked the ORIGINAL folder just now and it is understandably empty (since there was no DNG conversion that happened).

Your input is much appreciated!

- - - - - -

just a quick update - about a few minutes after I posted this - I saw the DNG files were created.  It seems like if there is a delayed reaction of cr2hdr-r.app?
Title: Re: cr2hdr-r OSX batch conversion app (dng, CR2 ,MLV, RAW, HDR video)
Post by: Danne on April 19, 2015, 09:20:38 AM
Hi!
On first run the app creates the folders. On second run it will start the transcoding.
The delay is probably A1ex binary working with the CR2 files doing the magic. It takes a while before all processes produces the final DNG.

In later versions I implemented the possibility to use some of the command line options in cr2hdr20bit. It works by writing the option directly into a CR2 file. This CR2 will apply written settings to all the CR2 files present in the folder.

example: cs3x3graymax.CR2

Now all the CR2 files will get chroma smoothing 3x3 and graymax white balance.

Command line list here:
cs2x2
cs3x3
cs5x5
reallybadpix
graymax
graymed
compress(require adobe dng converter installed)
compresslossy(require adobe dng converter installed)

Also, if you already have adobe dng converter installed already it should compress the produced DNG files to about half the size with no loss in quality automatically.

Hi Danne, just wanted to thank you again for your clarification re: cr2hdr-r.   I noticed that  the time varies for cr2hdr-r to convert CR2 to DNG- sometimes it is fast, sometimes I had to wait for a few minutes - but it does eventually convert the files.  :)

*feedbacks*

I replaced the cr2hdr20bit binary with the 70D cr2hdr binary (assuming this is actually 20bit from @nikfreak's thread which was provided by @N/A) from the link on first post in 70D thread but it doesn't seem to convert them after using the latest cr2hdr-r app (could be an error on my part)?

Videos still shows blueish/pinkish random flickering during Dual-ISO but as for Photos they seem to come out normal (with lines) but need to convert them properly somehow.

https://vimeo.com/125883959 (https://vimeo.com/125883959)

Could you try this version with above clip? Only change the cr2hdr20bit binary if you are developing still photos. If any problems occur then change to nkfreaks binary. Also specify if you are shooting mlv or raw.

Did the conversion work to prores as it should?

Just got home. Will download and test.

It was just rather strange behavior w 70D files as you noticed in the clip above regarding ProRes as well as HDR not being converted (MLV & .mov as well as CR2).

But will do it all again w 6.7 momentarily.

Stand by.

Doesn't seem to be working or should I wait until its completely finished? Running two takes at once:

What file do not convert right? CR2 or raw/mlv files? Just ran your raw files and they work fine. If CR2 you either use Nikfreaks binary. Place it in /usr/bin/ folder and replace the cr2hdr20bit.
Or use this command script on the DNG files after conversion. Adds the lacking color matrices.

RAW/MLV comes out fine (sometimes it gives me strange colors almost the same as if they were Dual-ISO) but without the flickering... strange?

As for CR2, I haven't been able to get it to work yet but it could be an error on my part when replacing the binaries.

Is it possible to have one 6.7 app for other camera and duplicate another 6.7 (with replacing the cr2hdr20bit with nikfreak's cr2hdr)?

That way I can have one app for 70D and another app for the rest of the other cameras... obviously this will be temporarily until then!

Thanks, D!

Check again against this version 6.7. Put up a new one.

I also would advice to use the script when working with CR2 files instead of a 70D version to get the latest cr2hdr20bit(corrected border interpolation, and commandline options)

You, ll have to upload problematic sample files for me to test. I cant follow what files are problematic. Raw seems to work. Is it dual iso files? Mlv? Dual iso raw?
You have to give the script chmod rights to get pass permission denied state. Do it in terminal. Dont remember exact but google it.
Thanks

It's actually MLV for both Regular and Dual ISO. Will post them for you to scroll through via MEGA.

Will look on google for giving rights to the command script.

THANKS, D, for the 6.8 update.

Currently rendering the 70D files. As I was checking one of the DNG's converted from Dual-ISO CR2 (it stills says file format module cannot parse the file after opening in PS) so it looks like I still have to use the script command that you sent me from earlier?

Still googling around on how to get my stupid MBP to allow it to run it. Even though I have control over sudo -- so I don't understand.

BRB.

6.8b *feedbacks*

Both MLV & RAW 70D files work fine. (Good work, D!)

Dual-ISO MLV/RAW still flickers (but improvement is noticeable).

Dual-ISO CR2 (converted DNG's) should work fine with @nikfreak's binary but I can't confirm this yet because I'm still trying to get the command script to work.

Other than that... It's definitely a big step forward regarding 70D files.

Thanks!

Thanks for feedback.
The flashing files are corrupted ones. Has nothing to do with color matrices or transcoding. Check them with mlrawviewer or another app to verify corruption issue. Also, adding the script to other files than CR2 transcoded dual iso files is of no use since cr2hdr-r already applied these numbers on all files but still images.

Version cr2hdr-r_6.9_lut_lab
Downloads in first post

- Added 14 to 16 bit support and repack of 16bit (dual iso movie DNG) for use in premiere pro CC. Thanks cpc!

After correspondense with forum user cpc, author of slimRAW, check this thread out for more info
http://magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=15027.msg146234#msg146234
he created a binary, which in post processing will repack extracted dng files from 14 to 16bit and also repack the already 16bit dual iso movie DNG files so they will work with premiere pro CC. This makes the files a little bigger, (typically 3,7mb to 4,1mb 1920x1080), but they will be workable both in davinci resolve and premiere pro CC. Actually dual iso movie DNG files will loose some weight in post process repack (typically 4,4mb to 4,2mb).
The repacking post processing adds some extra time to the transcoding process but it is still very fast repacking.
Repacking to 16bit is only done in parent folder of cr2hdr-r.
ALL BETA and for testing purposes. Do backup of important files.
Big thanks for this contribution.

Finally back on the MBP here at work after a dreadful weekend full of nothing but moving loads after loads from an apt into an house.

Downloaded 7.0 and will share results from both 5D3 & 70D files separately (unless you want me to combine them together lol) online today this afternoon.

Let's hope my back can hold up...

Stand by!

*FEEDBACKS*

7.0 seems to be responding to 70D files well (besides the Dual-ISO movie files)...

https://vimeo.com/126977653 (https://vimeo.com/126977653)

Also tried using the DNG's to make it readable in PP (CS6 not CC -- I don't think I got it working yet since only the Audio file shows up within the DNG folder inside PP) could this be the culprit due to not being CC?

I think I have CC on my MacMini but only CS6 on MBP -- perhaps I should find a way to update to CC, eh?

Cool. Don,t need to separate. I noticed a lut is missing when transcoding duai iso RAW to ProRes which will stop from creating the ProRes. Gonna upload a new version soon with that fixed. Also will refine an issue that stops some other anomalies which occur when the clock goes past 00:00 and transcodes are running. Probably fixed tomorrow.

Thanks for 7.3!!!

Got a bunch of files from 5D3, 70D & M.

Question first before I run it... oddly enough that 5D3 and 70D produced identical file names in both RAW & MLV formats... how do I get around this? Run them separately would be best, right?

p.s. that particular HDR file I mentioned earlier worked out fine on MacMini as soon as I got home. It just takes a long time to spit out ProRes.

Any conclusions? Which are the files that are problematic and how? When dual iso lines shows in the middle of the clip it could be it detects the dng as non dual iso.

Looks much cleaner and back to what it used to do. =)
https://vimeo.com/127240698 (https://vimeo.com/127240698)

However, I've narrowed down that it was actually the Dual ISO files from EOS-M that did not have the correct aspect ratio (even tho it was shot in normal 24p as all files were) weird?

Post by: DeafEyeJedi on May 08, 2015, 05:35:26 PM
I think so... Is it normal for HDR files to come out looking like 4:3 when it was shot in 16:9 or 2.35? (Will have to test more HDR files to confirm this though)
Title: Re: cr2hdr-r OSX batch conversion app (dng, CR2 ,MLV, RAW, HDR video)
Post by: Danne on May 08, 2015, 06:06:00 PM
If shot in raw it corrects ALL files with 1.61x aspect ratio. If you place a MOV file in the folder it doesnt touch aspect ratio.
If you have raw material with correct aspect ratio first convert them in PRORES folder then put the MOV file in hdr folder.

does this mean that you wont be able to colorgrade the final raw HDR sequence before its assembled into a MOV??
Title: cr2hdr-r OSX batch conversion app (dng, CR2 ,MLV, RAW, HDR video)
Post by: DeafEyeJedi on May 09, 2015, 01:46:37 AM
Not quite sure actually.

Maybe try placing the RAW HDR file into the ProRes folder first and wait for it to spit out DNG's then you can try and import the DNG's into LR5 AE (ACR) to color grade them and then save them.

Then take that DNG folder you just edited into HDR FOLDER again and run the app once more...

Not sure if that will work but doesn't hurt to try?

Otherwise stand by for his response.

Also do you own any wide angle glass with you to perhaps try Dual-ISO in crop-mode?
Title: Re: cr2hdr-r OSX batch conversion app (dng, CR2 ,MLV, RAW, HDR video)
Post by: Danne on May 09, 2015, 07:22:35 AM
Best way I believe is to create a flat prores file and then run it in HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV folder. You can use mlrawviewer, PRORES folder or you get a flat look straight in HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV folder so maybe run the file from there from the start. Then you grade the created MOV file in what nle you like and  export the final movie once again.
Creating a flat look in the start will probably lessen the enfuse flickering effect that sometimes occur.
If you want a ready to go look you can achieve this by adding a 3d lut in HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV folder. There are a few provided but otherwise I recommend exporting a mov file and the grab one frame and create a 3d lut in davinci resolve with a desired output look. Then add the 3d lut from start in the folder with raw/mlv files.

Changes to dng files won,t follow to any program but AE and acr so that little lightroom trick won,t work :)
Also, if you run a MOV file in the folder the suffix has to be in capitals MOV, not mov.

Had to update some things in HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV workflow so first post updated to 7d(will now transcode .mov and .MOV files in HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV folder)

Here are two ways to go about with raw/mlv HDR footage shot in 48, 50, or 60 fps


Here is the contrast lut I,m using in the movie
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4tCJMlOYfirMi1RQXNHeXh1Slk/view?usp=sharing
Here is a warmer white balance lut
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4tCJMlOYfirMi1RQXNHeXh1Slk/view?usp=sharing



*update
Managed to get this look when adding the contrast lut and a warmer white balance lut. Wb lut download above.

Another go with a few clips. 48 fps 1920, mlv added contrast and wb lut to most of the clips. They,re actually pretty nice.

Excellent fix regarding .mov/.MOV files...

Should definitely make our lives much easier and great job on getting the HDR section ironed out in 7.5d!

Love how your warm LUTS came out with a bit of contrast -- really nice work, Danne!

Updated to 7.6 (First post)

 lot of things regarding HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV folder.

- White balance support from an included CR2 still picture
- A folder with contrast and white balance luts will be present in HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV folder with a description(Add a contrast lut for a ready to go look. Add white balance if needed)
- Small fixes

For best quality HDR work with MLV/RAW files and simply add them to the folder. 48, 50, 60 fps are recommended. If no lut is added a log look will be applied.

Happy filming and please share examples if you have any.

Although the Auto WB does a good job but perhaps I should be able to grab a DNG with proper WB into the HDR folder (since I forgot to snap a CR2 photo for this test) correct?

Really nice looking files. Want to see more :).
You can retake a cr2 or silent DNG afterwards if you remember the settings or you have the same lighting.. If you grab a dng from the raw file itself it is the same as using auto white balance.

New upload, 7.7 first post.

- cr2hdr-r_speed_preview.workflow (former cr2hdr-r_speed_boost)
- some more fixes

Reworked speed_boost workflow service and added a preview possibilty. Right click on a file/files and select cr2hdr-r_speed_preview at the bottom.
Add luts and/or a CR2(white balance) next to the file/files. You will get one preview png file which you could also use as a starting point for creating complimentary luts in Davinci resolve for instance. Also added som luts and white balance luts which will be added when running a preview file the first time.
When cr2hdr-r_speed_preview is applied to the parent folder it gives the extra speed just as before with the speed_boost service.

*Don,t know if it,s an automator thing but folders can,t be named with spaces or dots or previews won,t work.

Version 8.2, first post.

Trying out a feature.

- Automated CR2 white balance handling(PRORES folder only)

Workflow
1 - Take a preshot CR2 still image with chosen/correct white balance before filming. When changing white balance take a new chosen CR2 white balance picture before filming the next scene. Keep on going.
2 - When finished simply drop all mlv/raw files together with all preshot white balance cr2 stills. White balance from your CR2 will be applied according to time filmed and group the CR2 to your movie files, fully automated. Do not mix raw and mlv files when doing this. Not working with dual iso files handling.

Sounds so friggin awesome! Such a brilliant idea and actually makes shooting more fun and fluidly with the ability to snap a photo after each scene without hesitation. [emoji56]

Also it would be even more awesome if you were able to implement the ability to throw in RAW and MLV along with Dual-ISO files all together but I understand that it may be too complex w the coding.

Great job once again with your amazing work. Keep up the eagerness and it is much appreciated, D!

Version 8.4, first post

Calculations found out through dcraw and from discussions with Chmee(Thanks!) here
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=5618.msg148135#msg148135
and here
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=6779.0

 - Added white balance matching with dng files in parent folder

Works the same as with PRORES foldes. Snap a CR2 with white balance and then start to film. When changing white balance, snap another picture and then continue filming. Keep going. When finished drop the mlv/raw files in parent folder with CR2 files. It will automatically choose the preshot CR2 and the group of files filmed after taken the CR2 file. It then takes the next CR2 and moves on to the next group of movie files.

- As these CR2 files will interfere with dual iso CR2 conversion you have to write WB or wb to ONE of the white balance CR2 files. That way it will pass on the dual iso conversion and use these CR2 files specific with mlv/raw files. Don,t mix mlv and raw files as in the picture when using wb CR2 files.

version 8.5 first post

Reworked the speed_preview workflow.
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=13512.msg147712#msg147712

By right clicking on a raw/mlv/mov/MOV file you get one preview png frame from the chosen file/files works with following files.

- MLV/RAW regular files
- Dual iso movie files
- Higher fps, 48, 50, 60 fps (will autocorrect aspect ratio)
- HDR recordings - You have to put in the word HDR in the file for the preview to recognize it as a HDR file! example M09-1234hdr.MLV
- MOV, mov regular files (might be handy previewing 3d luts in general

Main usage is for a fast workflow with trying out 3d luts and checking CR2 white balance before taking of in the PRORES folder.
Simply add the chosen lut and/or the CR2 wb file next to the files and run the preview service.

Start up idea I had from dmilligan compression mlv tool which works with an automator service.

Code: [Select]
for f in "$@"
do

By adding above it works on selected files.

Then I added below for listing directory

Code: [Select]
cd "`dirname "$f"`"
Incorporated 3d lut, wb support, used mtime to only erase 30 sec old clips and used g3gg0, A1ex cool mlv_dump 
Code: [Select]
-f frames to extract only a few frames from the file. This and a lot of other stuff :)
All scripts are provided in the download package.

Added some more luts created in da vinci resolve. Will be automatically copied to folder when using the speed_preview on a file.

Thanks, D!

This can be a fun feature (I often have to remind myself to delete png files after each previews otherwise it won't take effects if I were to leave them in) though not sure if this was to be expected?

It can sometimes be confusing when trying to decide which log/luts I used previously that looked good from last time I used the app (any suggestion on how to make myself familiar with them ) other than spending more time with it in order to speed up the workflow -- no pun intended! lol

Looking forward to see the results!

Your welcome.

* Thanks for feedback. What would be a faster workflow with previewer?
Don, t understand the question with luts. I always use dan_log_01 or 02 as base log and then it is up to the user to add wb and/or contrast_03 lut.
HDR folder has dan_log_01 hardcoded in the script so no log is needed in that folder.
Title: Re: cr2hdr-r OSX batch conversion app (dng, CR2 ,MLV, RAW, HDR video)
Post by: DeafEyeJedi on June 04, 2015, 12:39:49 PM
I guess I can easily forget which LUTS to use after applying the logs (either dan_log_01 or 02) then this is where I get a brain freeze (or writers block) if I may say...

so I guess a faster workflow would be if possible if I can just run preview again with different LUTs AFTER previously running it as oppose to having to delete the PNG files each time? (not that I do mind but it kind of slows down the thinking process a little bit) unless I'm missing something...

Does that make sense?
Title: Re: cr2hdr-r OSX batch conversion app (dng, CR2 ,MLV, RAW, HDR video)
Post by: Danne on June 04, 2015, 12:53:04 PM
Yea, I had automatic png removal before. Might throw that back in there. Will think a bit.
Another issue is that preview doesn, t work with spaces in folder names. Annoying. Tried adding quotes in script but no succes.
Title: Re: cr2hdr-r OSX batch conversion app (dng, CR2 ,MLV, RAW, HDR video)

I know I read that and didn't use spaces or dot which worked fine.

But with It does not.

Not that important comparing to others I would say.

Hmmm?

Great work though as I'm very pleased with having the ability to keep myself from exporting ProRes again only because I didn't Iike the look from the logs/LUTS I chose...

Overall it's an excellent addition & a great tool -- just needs a little refinement and it'll be gold!

Version 8.9

I added a batch_folder inside the dan_log_luts. Dan_log_luts folder is created when running speed_preview service on a raw/mlv file the first time. You can put in up to 10 files in then batch_folder and then run the speed_preview on a selected file. This will run all .cube files from inside the batch_folder and generate their names. Typically you start of with testing all your logs. Find one then go for lets say white balance luts, pick one, and finally run all your rec709(contrast) luts and pick one. You now have a combination of three luts tested and ready for batch run in the PRORES folder.

Might clear things a bit with short tut.

*feedback/question*

Just got home and was anxious to get my hands on 8.9 -- however after reinstalling it twice (just to be sure it wasn't a bug) but it could be and apparently once I start the speed_preview after placing the 3 logs in batch_folder from Dan_log_luts folder per your suggestion via tutorial and it produces two DNG's files but then it randomly stops before spitting out png's.

I tried running the same speed preview in HDR folder -- is this not to be expected to work because I tried it and it doesn't do the trick - normal?

I think I used both .MOV and RAW in HDR and neither didn't spit out any png's...

Currently testing out the align sharpening for HDR .mov files again with 9.1 -- Thanks again, D!

Thanks for sharing workflow and testing. I think mlv files will work in HDR folder. MOV files works outside and it is really not a priority. I only kept it in there out of laziness :).
Regarding RAW. SInce mlv_dump has the ability to determine how many frames to extract I can stop after lets say ten files but with raw I have to simply kill the terminal process. I have put it to stop at 0.5s. When it comes to HDR files I select frame 9 and 10 and if the raw file hasn,t extracted up to at least ten frames it won,t have any files to work with. Maybe I have to set it to extract for one whole second instead of 0.5s.

Version 9.2
Extended preview RAW to 1 second extraction before terminating process. Shoud now work on lazy ;) computers extracting/creating a HDR preview.
Also added automated inclusion of CR2 files when running .cube files from batch folder for correct white balance.

* Version 9.3

-Add up to 20 luts simultaneously to your files in PRORES folder. Up to 10 luts in HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV folder.

-Removed hardcoded lut to HDR files

Version 9.4

- Readded possibility to change settings to the image by adding commands to the generated png preview. Following information is provided in the lut_lab folder which is copied to location from when speed_preview service is run the first time.

"Regarding generated png files.

Ability to change following settings directly in the generated png file. You can add all three settings to the same png file. Just keep the png file when running cr2hdr-r while creating prores files.

Looking forward to playing with your new features re: B.W.D. commands --  do I still type in the word 'sharpenalign' at the end of the file on top of directory or is that not needed any longer?

Still work in progress :)
Version 9.6

- speed_preview now works with brightness and white balance commands

- added previews for CR2 files. Good for creating lut base working with highres still images

- added MOV and other formats that might work. Try out and see what works. Will export one frame to jpg

From txt info file in lut_lab folder

"*
When using speed_preview for generating previews, if you want to use brightness or white balance settings simply write the command straight to a MLV/RAW file
example
M03-2316b3w20.MLV

Will generate this png
M03-2316b3w20_1_2015-06-12_0001_C0000_000000

Keep it when you want to run the PRORES transcoding and it will pick this particular file to go with the original MLV."

To get control over lut looks you start with the logs to see what is good. You can add up to ten in the batch folder. Throw one out that you like and then continue with filling the batch folder with all the contrast luts. Mixing logs and luts in the batch folder won,t do the trick ;)

Two step operation to achieve a base look. Check the vid again.

Sorry got bad news on my end... totally my fault as I was trying to clean up my external drive to place the original MLV files back into another folder in order to make room for another test run and somehow I accidentally deleted all the MLV's (not knowing) and emptied the trash on the OS X system -- I've just tried to recover the MLV files through 'DiskDrill' app that I have but no luck yet so far. Such a shame on me! (though I am confidence I'll get those precious files back!)

Good thing I have all the DNG's already converted somewhat properly and will have to stick with these merciful DNG's -- whew such a lifesaver you are, Danne, huh?

Imagine If I had only been using MLFVS... I would have been very upset and depressed for a quite while... such a devastating feeling losing loads of MLV files is like burning your films in a barrel of fire!


Anyway here's a quick sneak peak from one of my favorite Dual-ISO files...

Watch how much more DR I can gain with Dual-ISO (plus using ND.9 filter) on 16-35L II wide open in 29.97fps @ ISO 100/1600 along with the use of Cinelog-C in post (Thanks @Andy600) and here's the workflow as it follows:

cr2hdr-r 2.2 > AE (Smart Import 2 w Cinelog-C) > FCPX (used @Danne's LUT's plus Eastman from @Andy600's -- all three combined) for a contrasty decent warm filmic look...


Thanks for 9.7 and will definitely check it out!

Question... if I no longer have the MLV files to convert... am I allowed to run newer version with converted DNG's just to fix whatever needs to be fixed or is it already baked in?

Post by: Danne on June 16, 2015, 12:58:54 AM
Sorry to hear about the loss of mlv files.
Cr2hdr-r works with mlv/raw files so dng sequences will have to be run in outside NLE.
Title: Re: cr2hdr-r OSX batch conversion app (dng, CR2 ,MLV, RAW, HDR video)
Post by: DeafEyeJedi on June 16, 2015, 01:39:11 AM
no worries. Check out this clip below. Nice Dual ISO combine with your LUTS and Andy's...


I'm just trying to narrow down this so called bug when it won't go by each sequence folder after each ACR settings applied (adjust exposure & apply Cinelog-C) but instead it just keeps popping up ACR for me to adjust by each DNG frame by frame as oppose to Folder by Folder from each MLV... does this make sense?

It works great if I use MLVFS (tho I confirmed in exiftool that both cr2hdr-r & MLVFS seem to spit out 16-bit dng's but not sure if that's the factor here?)

I'll shoot a screen flow of what Im talking about when I can...

Once Smart Import 2 works with sequence folders then this workflow would be champ and yet so safe to use!

Thanks again for everything bro!

*edit*

It looks promising with the recovery of MLV's in progress... Special Thanks to Disk Drill!  8)

Script problems might be related to dng meta tags. Mlvfs runs cdng with tags categorized differently from dng files coming from mlv_dump and raw2dng. It is just guessing here. Think you have to investigate further.

version 9.8 and version 2.4

- Added CR2 white balance support also for dual iso movie files. This works for files in the parent folder only.

It is supposed to be sort of intuitive in that sence that cr2hdr-r will always pick the CR2 file photographed closest to your mlv/raw file. This means you can have a bunch of CR2 files in the folder, it will still choose the one still image you took right before starting filming.

* You can mix dual iso files and non dual iso files when using CR2 workflow. Don,t mix raw/mlv files if you want the right CR2 to be picked.

version 9.9 and version 2.5

- Added auto white balance to dng files if no CR2 file is added. It adds auto wb multiplier generated from dcraw.

version 10.0

-Added ability to include xmp files. They are stashed in the dan_log_3d_luts folder which is copied to folder when using the speed_preview as preview service. Include one xmp and some parameters will be applied when viewing the dng files in acr. Only the first files will have a different setting from the xmp. Not all.

Thanks.
- as it snaps the xmp next to the mlv/raw file and applies this to the first dng file nine more alternatives are created.
Good or bad? Should it only use the first one?
Also. Should the xmp apply to all the dng files or only the first? It, s all a matter of a little extra time it will take for it to be added. AE I believe only needs the first file in a sequence.

Post by: DeafEyeJedi on June 26, 2015, 07:25:13 PM
Alternatives as in what are being used based on the sliders in ACR? (is that what you meant?)

If so, I think it's a useful feature. I'm looking at the ProRes file spitting out from beta 10 and I was surprised how close (or spot on) it looks from the adjustments that I made in ACR would show up on movie file without any flickering -- AWESOME!

I think you are correct that it only needs to be applied to one DNG per MLV... because I just tested out by opening the DNG sequence folder spitted out by beta 10 in AE with Smart Import 2 and it worked like a charm!

I was surprised to see that once the DNG file opens up and I looked at the ACR with all settings at "0" even tho I notice that colors are what was applied from previous .xmp file being used from version 10 (but doesn't show up on ACR during 2nd time) while doing this test on AE.

Maybe it's not that important since it was already applied from the first time using your app. right?  :P

This new addition feature of yours with being able to read xmp files sure would help us to skip AE which can save us time.

You need ffmpeg for it to work. Link and description in first post. The binary has to be placed in /usr/bin/ folder.
Also recommended that you place your files on the computer rather than working from cf card.

Post by: Danne on July 09, 2015, 04:42:14 PM
Ok, so if all is installed you follow the instructions

1 - On first run the app creates folders and then it quits. (PRORES, HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV, ORIGINALS folder)
2 - Place the files in the folder that you want. For instance if you want HDR files you have to move the HDR files to the HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV folder. If you want prores files move your files to the PRORES folder. If you only want dng folders keep the files in the parent folder. That is outside the other folders.
3 - When all files are sorted in the right folder you run the app a second time and then the transcoding will start searching through the folders one by one.


*If it says ffmpeg is missing you have to manually put it in the /usr/bin/ folder since it is not provided in the installation package.

Man it feels good to be back in here... I decided to give it another run with cr2hdr-r again from the service workflow with a bunch of quick Dual ISO shots (did a bunch of quickies from varies of cameras for @AWPStar) anyway I noticed this odd behavior or bug when viewing my EOS-M files through ACR within AE during SmartImport2 -- I noticed that a few out of several of the converted DNG's stated that the camera was 5D3 but it was really from EOS-M... I'm sure this has happened before and you may already be aware of it but what can I do to help you fix this?

If possible?

Hope all is well with you and the family at home!

I need to know where in the program you converted the files. Did you reproduce the problem. How was the files lined up in the folder?

Post by: DeafEyeJedi on July 29, 2015, 08:41:39 PM
My apologies for the silent treatment. Got caught up with work lately. Decided to run Beta10 instead of the service workflow (twice to be sure) and this is what I was able to reproduce...


Spanning files seems to occur during crop mode shooting but not sure if that's the culprit here.

No big deal though just thought it was worth noting.

Will try to shoot some more test files (non crop and crop mode) to determine the real problem but then again there may be no problem at all but just points back to the limitations of the EOSM being shot in Crop-Mode because it just randomly spits out spanning files (tho I admit that I had to turn off camera by taking battery out because it just kept saying "busy" after finished recording the crop-mode shots thus the reason why it kept creating spanning files but theres really nothing in it? Just all pitch black just like how you see it in the video.

Sorry for the off topic but I probably should post this to the EOS M thread... Thanks again,D!

The M15 numbered file doesn,t have the original .MLV file so it can,t convert anything. The other issue I have no idea how to look for. I may very well be fully related to the eos-m camera so that has to be ruled out first.

Post by: Danne on September 16, 2015, 08:39:02 PM
Updated to version 10.7_align in first post.

Biggest changes is in HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV folder. As default I added jerrykil align script implementation to HDR conversion. It is multithreaded although slow. It will give you much better quality to your HDR files. To disable it write the letter x to a RAW/MLV file. More info here.



"HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV folder

Main usage

RAW, MLV files
1 - Create a folder and put in either RAW, MLV, mov, MOV files in your created folder. Preferrably files filmed in 48, 50 or 60 fps but other fps settings will also work.

2 - Double click cr2hdr-r icon and when the prompt opens select your parent folder.  An ORIGINALS colder will be created in which the originals (RAW, MLV, MOV, mov) files will be stored. First cr2hdr-r will create regular .MOV file of your RAW/MLV files, secondly it will create a second .MOV file which will merge the frames and create the end result.

MOV, mov files
1 - When filming h.264 HDR the cr2hdr-r goes right into creating a HDR file and creates a second .MOV file for end result.

NOTE_1
Aligning.
As default cr2hdr-r is set to align RAW/MLV HDR files. This will take longer but the end result is much better than without aligning. To disable the align feature simply put the word x in the name of one of your RAW/MLV files. This will disable aligning for all files making conversion much faster.
example
M02-1721x.MLV

NOTE_2
sharpen
HDR files filmed in h.264 tend to be softer since the preferred method is to film with camera settings set not to sharpen in camera. By writing the word sharpen to one of your files. This will sharpen all of you MOV files. Preferrably you use this with h.264 files and not RAW/MLV files.
example
O42A9647sharpen.MOV"

Hi,

When i transcode a normal mlv file, i have a "Canon EOS 5D Mark III" metadata in the resulting DNGs, but when i transcode a dual iso mlv  i end with a "canikon" metadata in the DNGs. The consequence is to not be able to choose camera profile in ACR. It is not specific to this last version, i think.
Have i missed something?

Havn, t checked dual iso in a while. Did you run the app outside the downloaded folder? Put the cr2hdr-r onto your desktop and run it from there and report back.

It's  version 10.7_align. The app was run from the applications folder, and i made another try putting the app on the desktop. The folder containing the MLV file is on the desktop.
If i open the dual-iso MLV with MLVFS i can see that the metadata tag is "Canon EOS 5D Mark III" in the DNGs.
When i use CR2HDR-R to convert the dual-iso MLV, i have a "canikon" metadata tag in the DNGs after conversion.

@Bayard1965
Just ran the 10.7 version cr2hdr-r with a dual iso file and metadata copied fine to the new files. Try download the 10.7 version again and do following if you havn,t done so

1 - run the uninstall.command before running the install.command
2 - run the app again

By the way. What OS version are you using? If it,s not working, could you upload a sample dng?
Also try downloading a later version of exiftool. Shouldn, t b necessary since a version is provided but worth a try.

Running the uninstall.command before running again the install.command resolved the problem, now it's works. I have the good tags embedded in the DNGs.

*new stuff
folder_ProRes444 workflow


Updated top of first post with a download link

Been thinking of creating an automator workflow service which would transcode folders of dng files to ProRes444 files. Mainly to be able to use it with dmilligan,s highly useful mlv file system or if having folders with dng files lying around. folder_ProRes444 transcodes multiple folders in parallell and these files are exported next to the mlvfs partition in to a created PRORES folder. Has to be this way since It can,t create subfolders in the mlvfs partition. It will scale stretched slowmo footage.

How to use it

1 - Install the the folder_ProRes444 service.

3 - Select only ONE folder in the mlvfs partition(see pic below). This will make the workflow search through the whole directory and transcode 3 or 4 folders in parallell and continue til all folders are transcoded to ProRes444 mov files. Don,t select all folders at once since it will start to convert all folders at once. Bug.. Fixed.

This is so much like Beauty and the Beast...

Finally a happy ending for all of us and I also tested this new workflow service while playing with AE to see if I can still color grade them while exporting ProRes444 for me to use as dailies or quick previews for clients or even use them to color grade (maybe not as good as if you were to use as a flat log) which seems to work well!

folder_ProRes444_lut Download in first post

There is some more "howto" info in the download.

Some different updates amongst them being able to include a single dng file in lut_hold folder for linear white balance. Mlvfs is delivering correct wb when shooting in "k", manual wb mode, but sometimes you might want the same wb for all clips if camera was set differently for some reason. Recommended to simply drag a dng(or CR2)  file of choice through mlvfs straight to lut_hold folder. Wb multiplier settings will apply to all ProRes files.

01 - Install the the folder_ProRes444 service.

04 - PRORES folder and two more folders inside PRORES folder will be created next to your mlvfs partition for a 3d lut workflow. After the folders are created the workflow will quit. This will give you time to select 3d luts which you put in the lut_hold folder.

Post by: dfort on October 08, 2015, 11:04:11 PM
Hi Danne -- excellent work and exciting to see active development in action.

I took a look at cr2hdr-r a few months ago but at the time I was only using dual_iso for still images and I was also learning how to use Lightroom so I decided to go with kichetof's Lightroom Dual ISO Plugin. Now I'm looking into shooting a project in raw video so I'm trying to figure out a workflow to deal with the MLV files and whoa! I'm confused by the sheer number of options available. Of course everyone seems to have their opinion on which is the "ideal" workflow.

Revisiting your project I'm also finding it somewhat confusing because it is not only for dual_iso but it also encompasses raw video, export to ProRes, LUTs, etc. I'm sure this all makes perfect sense to you and other users who have been following your project but I've already run into issues trying to install the command line tools your project depends on. For example, in your source code you have:

Code: [Select]
/usr/bin/enfuse
Mac users should be aware of the restrictions that the latest OS, "El Capitan" is putting on where files can be installed and /usr/bin is now off limits. There are ways to work around this but maybe we should ask ourselves if defeating these new Apple policies is something that we really want to do in order to get things working as they used to. The flip side of that argument is that Apple is doing things wrong because OS-X (a.k.a. Darwin) is a Unix type of system and "The UNIX Philosophy" (http://www.amazon.com/UNIX-Philosophy-Mike-Gancarz/dp/1555581234/ref=sr_1_1_twi_pap_2) is to work with a bunch of small programs installed on the system each doing a specialized task, the output of one piped into another and rely heavily on shell scripts to glue them all together. So, why not have it both ways? It seems that it would make everything much simpler if all of the dependencies are bundled inside of the app so the user doesn't have to install half a dozen apps in various directories.

I heard of issues regarding "El Capitan" even before updating my system. A cr2hdr Lightroom Plugin user was on a location job and the system update broke the plugin. It seems that not only was /usr/bin off limits but the plugin couldn't use anything that was installed in /usr/local/bin either. I was asking for a while why was it that the dependencies for the plugin were included in the package but the Mac couldn't utilize them. By the way, Windows did use them so the plugin had to have different installation instruction for Windows and Mac. I started playing around with the code (Lightroom plugins are actually written in lua) and with the help of dmilligan and johnrellis at the Adobe Lightoom SDK forum (https://forums.adobe.com/community/lightroom/lightroom_sdk) the plugin now works the same on Windows and Mac without the user having to install any dependencies--well, except for maybe the Adobe DNG Converter for compressing DNG's.

The trick (by dmilligan) we ended up using in the plugin looks like this:

Code: [Select]
if MAC_ENV then
    command = 'export PATH="'..LrPathUtils.child(_PLUGIN.path, 'bin"')..':${PATH} && '..command
end
result = LrTasks.execute(command)

However I was also experimenting with a shell script (suggested by johnrellis) that would probably work for this project.

Code: [Select]
PATH=`dirname -- "$0"`:$PATH
cr2hdr $@

That just might be a fancy way of adding the current directory (represented by a single dot) to the path but it should persist through the rest of the terminal session. On the Lightroom SDK the path setting doesn't persist and needs to be used every time a call is made to cr2hdr. I would try this out on your project but since you don't have your source code on a distributed version control server (like bitbucket.org which is used on most Magic Lantern projects), it makes it rather difficult to submit suggestions (a.k.a. pull requests) to your project.

FYI to the readers of this topic, Danne and I have been sending PM's back and forth and helping each other out but we believe that this conversation might be best done on the forum so anyone can chime in. After all, this is an open source project and user input is not only welcome but encouraged.

Thanks dfort. I,ll check into this asap. Meanwhile all scripts are provided in the download. Really cool if this would work. all binaries are being called upon from usr/bin. Not sure how I would implement the solution here.

I made a demonstration repository for you:

https://bitbucket.org/daniel_fort/cr2hdr-r

Note there is an issue, check it out. There is also a pull request showing a suggestion on how to set the path. In addition there is a download area with your distribution files in it.

Of course this isn't really going to work yet, just a demonstration. I haven't been able to install your project on my "El Capitan" equipped Mac so I can't verify that my pull request even works. I'm also not sure how you have things setup. Is it an Xcode project? I've never worked with one of those.

It takes a while to set up the repository but it is rather easy with the SourceTree app (https://www.sourcetreeapp.com/) which made to work with bitbucket.org. In addition, dmilligan has posted Mercurial tips (http://magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9524.0) and he has helped me out on several occasions--I see he's helped you out too.

The great part about this is that other developers, and some users, can easily submit their suggestions yet you still maintain full control of your project.

Thanks dfort. I,ll check into this asap. Meanwhile all scripts are provided in the download. Really cool if this would work. all binaries are being called upon from usr/bin. Not sure how I would implement the solution here.
Your scripts are there and the app is there but how did you build your app? If you setup an Xcode project you will discover that it supports Git or Subversion repositories but the Magic Lantern repositories are Mercurial. There is an Xcode plugin available and it is hosted on bitbucket:

https://bitbucket.org/creaceed/mercurial-xcode-plugin

Getting back to the "El Capitan" /usr/bin issues, here's what happens when trying to install cr2hdr-r.

You've got a script that installs the binaries in "cr2hdr-r_11.7_align/Install these first/install_uninstall.command" and the binaries to install are located in "cr2hdr-r_11.7_align/Install these first/Binaries_cr2hdr-r" so let's see what happens on OS-X 10.11, I'll use dcraw as an example:

First of all check to see if dcraw is installed on this system.
Code: [Select]
Rosie-Forts-Computer:Install these first rosiefort$ which dcraw
Rosie-Forts-Computer:Install these first rosiefort$ ls /usr/bin/dcraw
ls: /usr/bin/dcraw: No such file or directory

The install script is meant to be run by double clicking on it but since it is from an "unidentified developer" you need to control click -> Open the first time you run it, here's the terminal output:

Code: [Select]
/Users/rosiefort/Desktop/cr2hdr-r/cr2hdr-r_11.7_align/Install\ these\ first/install_uninstall.command ; exit;
Rosie-Forts-Computer:~ rosiefort$ /Users/rosiefort/Desktop/cr2hdr-r/cr2hdr-r_11.7_align/Install\ these\ first/install_uninstall.command ; exit;
Password:
ffmpeg binary is missing. Download and place in /usr/bin/ folder for Prores and HDR transcoding.
logout
Saving session...
...copying shared history...
...saving history...truncating history files...
...completed.

[Process completed]

So it looks like except for the optional ffmpeg that isn't in your Binaries_cr2hdr-r everything got installed but on "El Capitan" nothing got installed, not in /usr/bin or anywhere else in the system path. Running install_uninstall.command again results in:

Code: [Select]
Rosie-Forts-Computer:~ rosiefort$ /Users/rosiefort/Desktop/cr2hdr-r/cr2hdr-r_11.7_align/Install\ these\ first/install_uninstall.command ; exit;
cr2hdr-r_speed_preview.workflow
do you wish to uninstall Y/N?ylogout
Saving session...
...copying shared history...
...saving history...truncating history files...
...completed.

[Process completed]

So it seems like it uninstalled but there was nothing to uninstall.

It would probably work following wadehome's instructions:
However, wouldn't it be better if the app would work without having to install dependencies or work around the new security policies? Placing the dependencies inside of your app, like was done with the Lightroom plugin, and running them from there would certainly simplify the installation. Users could still install custom versions of the binaries if they desire by simply control clicking on the app's icon and Show Package Contents then replacing the binaries.

Post by: Danne on October 09, 2015, 07:42:16 PM
It, s shell scripts running through automator. I have no idea how to work with xcode. It, s all bash scripts.
I have no time right now but install dependencies will be checked if I could do something about.
Wadehome solution works but I could also direct all binaries to usr/local/bin before a more stable solution is made.
Thanks for taking the time dfort.

Post by: dfort on October 10, 2015, 01:27:33 AM
Got it--I never worked with automator. Checked out the documentation and it looks like an interesting app. Reminds me of HyperCard which I never learned how to use either. Wow, I just dated myself.

Completely understand about not having the time to do this. I retired recently and can finally put my time into the projects that interest me the most. However I'm getting called back to work to fill in for an editor that landed in the hospital. Didn't know operating an Autodesk Flame was that dangerous  :o

Anyway, I took the first (and maybe final) step--changed everything in your ".workflow" files and source code from /usr/bin to /usr/local/bin. The binaries now install in /usr/local/bin and everything seems to be working fine on "El Capitan". One side benefit is that you don't need administrator privileges so I also took out your sudo commands and now the user doesn't need to enter a password to install-uninstall.

Hi dfort. I actually have a version with the local/bin folder. Wanted to make sure it was working in el capitan before putting it up.
Something has doubled the size of the "install these first" folder of yours from around 105 to 239mb? I also noticed that when I don,t enter the full /usr/local/bin path to both dcraw and exiftool they won,t work in tha workflow as it would from usr/bin without full paths. They are found in terminal alright but not in cr2hdr-r. usr/local/bin/exiftool/dcraw will work. This goes for OSX maverick anyways.
THanks for pushing this forward.

Post by: dfort on October 10, 2015, 02:38:26 AM
I'm still trying to figure out how to use this so if something doesn't work I wouldn't even know about it. Now that you mention it I do remember seeing some calls that didn't have the full path to the binary but if I type "which exiftool dcraw" it is in the system path. You're probably right though, we had similar issues with the Lightroom plugin.

By the way, the difference in file size was my mistake. I've got a bunch of extra stuff in your folder_ProRes444_lut.workflow package - no idea how that happened.

Excellent progress gents and now I'm itching closer towards to updating to El Captain but I refuse to do so on my brand new MBP -- I don't mind biting the bullet with my old MBP just in case.

Looking forward to testing this out and report back soon!

Oh come on Sean -- get on the bleeding edge!

Seriously, like it or not at some point you are going to have to update or fade into obsolescence.

So back to the topic, this is so much more than batch converting dual_iso files. You can also batch convert MLV files to ProRes in 10-bit log color space? That is huge.

Yes, sir! Actually this app is one of the greatest stand alone tool that does all the dirty work for you. I seriously cannot wait to meet Danne one of those days and get hammered in Germany!

Try shooting Dual-ISO MLV or RAW and honestly cr2hdr-r is all you need.

Simply start it and sit back for a dip of Tea of have it run overnight for you with peace of mind!

Let's do lunch next week and we'll talk more over this!

Shoot another user error on my part... Sweden it is and for the most part once I'm done with Tea I would probably just swing by and check on it before hitting the sack for the evening!

Other than that it is pretty solid and reliable for the most part!

Trust me I can't imagine life without cr2hdr-r especially when it comes to Dual-ISO, HANDS DOWN!

Don't forget that it also deals with not only Dual-ISO but HDR (both H264 & RAW) files as well as spitting out ProRes4444 in either with a log or LUT applied (even for HDR & Dual-ISO files too) right off the bat hence the title of this particular thread.

After all there's No ACR nor After Effects. No DR12. No Joke!

Basically a poor man's best batch conversion tool especially when it comes to me being lazy at times.

Nice, eh?

If you, re going prores try out the previewer and the batch_folder function.you quickly spit out batches of looks. I developed this even further in folder_prores444_lut and included some more nice 3d luts.

I got a chance to try out the installation on a virgin Mac running El Capitan and thought I'd pass along some notes.

First of all it won't launch the "install-uninstall.command" script because:

Quote
“install_uninstall.command” can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer.

Your security preferences allow installation of only apps from the Mac App Store and identified developers.

Google Chrome downloaded this file today at 9:34 AM from docs.google.com.

The workaround for this is to control-click on “install_uninstall.command” and choose Open from the pop up menu. That tip should be in "install notes.rtf" unless Danne becomes an "identified developer" or puts this on the Mac App Store.

(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=https%3A%2F%2Ffarm6.staticflickr.com%2F5794%2F21885950120_47c41a054a.jpg&hash=a8885a3dd6f3c1704b15f81bde0175a3)

Here's the terminal session from that script:

Code: [Select]
Last login: Fri Oct  9 13:28:28 on ttys000

[Process completed]

Checking out the posts about this issue it seems that if the system had a /usr/local directory before the El Capitan update there's no problem making modifications to it but a brand new Mac like the one I'm testing out doesn't have a /usr/local directory even though it is in the default path:

Code: [Select]
/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin
Apparently there is no way around this. You have to disable System Integrity Protection (SIP) just to create /usr/local. Once that is done you can (and probably should) turn it back on. If you have a /usr/local you shouldn't need administrator privileges "sudo" to make changes.

[UPDATE: I just went into recovery mode, turned off SIP, rebooted, created a /usr/local directory (needed root privileges to do this) then reenabled SIP. Now I can't make any modifications in /usr or /usr/local. It looks like this is going to be a bit more complicated.]

I guess it,s possible to direct the whole thing to

Post by: dfort on October 10, 2015, 08:17:44 PM
That is certainly a possibility or you can use Library/Application\ Support or anywhere that you have write access. Then you will either have to set the path or call the binaries using the full path name. My suggestions to put the binaries inside of your cr2hdr-r package was before I understood how it runs--not that I really know now.

The best solution that I have found is to turn off SIP then run this command:

Code: [Select]
sudo mkdir /usr/local && sudo chflags norestricted /usr/local && sudo chown $(whoami):admin /usr/local && sudo chown -R $(whoami):admin /usr/local
Then immediately go back and reenable SIP. This will allow full access to /usr/local. Now for the fun part, you can easily delete /usr/local but you can't recreate it without doing the csrutil disable/enable song and dance.

[EDIT: I should give credit to that command that sets the permissions for /usr/local. I found it here: http://digitizor.com/2015/10/01/fix-homebrew-permissions-osx-el-capitan/ ]

Just found out why cr2hdr-r breaks after the "El Capitan" update. The update moves files located in /usr/bin and other locations into a quarantine folder located in /Library/SystemMigration/History/Migration-(UUID)/QuarantineRoot/

Interesting.
I should have made it into a service workflow. Too late now. When I tried it in the beginning I had the problems with cr2hdr calling exiftool from system rather than from where I point it too. Interesting you found a solution in the lightroom  app.
I just made a tutorial about how to use the stand alone folder_ProRes444 workflow. This stores all that,s needed inside the workflow so should work straight away in el capitan.

Danne--I was going through the steps and believe that your folder_ProRes444_lut.workflow instructions (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=13512.msg154716#msg154716) are showing folder_ProRes444.workflow screenshots.

Still figuring this stuff out but hey, it works great on El Capitan and I was able to make a good looking ProRes Log file without having to install any dependencies.

Thanks for checking. Good that it works on El Capitan. I plan on installing the new OS on a laptop today.

Mind if I post a feature request?

Rescale image.

Except for maybe the 5D3, most cameras can't shoot 1920x1080 raw video. It is best to do the resizing before creating the ProRes movie file. Then of course there are several scaling algorithms to choose from. It looks like ffmpeg is fully capable of resizing (http://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Scaling%20(resizing)%20with%20ffmpeg) and it also has several scaler options (https://ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg-scaler.html).

Your source code hinted at this possibility:
Code: [Select]
#FFmpeg used to transcode to ProRes444 with or without audio. FFmpeg will also scale certain kind of stretched footage to get a normal looking file.
#commands/effects used
#-vf scale=iw:ih*1.66
but how to implement rescaling options without overly complicating it? How about the same way you're handling dcraw settings by putting the command line options in text files that you can drop into the lut_hold folder. There are a lot of possible combinations of height x width options when recording MLV. Some need to be stretched or squeezed to create a normal looking image and many won't fit neatly into a 16x9 frame. Add in the rescaling algorithm choices and there's a mind boggling amount of options. Of course you can't include all the options but maybe some of the more popular choices? I'd really like to be able to take MLV files shot at 1280x720 and batch convert them to 1920x1080 Log-C ProRes 444.

As long as we're on the subject of rescaling, dare I mention 4K? Sure, you can't get more resolution when you upscale a single image but what using multiple images? I played around with image stacking with video footage (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=15306.msg149059#msg149059) and though I haven't figured it all out yet there may be some way to create a script that will make this practical. One idea is vary the the depth of the image stack depending on how many images can be stacked before it is no longer possible to align the images.
Title: Re: cr2hdr-r OSX batch conversion app (dng, CR2 ,MLV, RAW, HDR video)
Post by: Danne on October 17, 2015, 06:27:07 PM
Been thinking about scaling options. Placing them as droplets in lut_hold folder is possible and probably the best idea. Is 1920x1080 the only wish or could there be more scaling options?
By the way, I skipped all stretching x1.66 in folder_prores444_lut since dcraw reads the default scale tag implemented by dmilligan in mlvfs. Really cool.
About the 4k things I have no idea how to do that right now. What software is used right now? Are you working through command line?
Title: Re: cr2hdr-r OSX batch conversion app (dng, CR2 ,MLV, RAW, HDR video)
Post by: dfort on October 17, 2015, 10:27:26 PM
The image stacking experiments I did with Photoshop. No big deal doing it for still photographs but video would require setting up a rather elaborate action (https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/creating-actions.html#creating_actions) or writing a Photoshop scipt (http://www.adobe.com/devnet/photoshop/scripting.html). Your method of using freely available command line tools like dcraw, enfuse, ffmpeg, etc. along with some shell scripts to automate the process is also a possibility.

For regular scaling I would think that getting the image to fit in a 1920x1080 frame would be the best place to start because it is a well established standard. Sure, some users like working with ratios other than 16x9 but that could be done with custom settings instead of trying to come up with all the possible rescale options.

Is is very cool that MLVFS takes care of any necessary stretching (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=13152.msg153802#msg153802) so you can just concentrate on rescaling to fit the frame. Maybe just crop to fit or letterbox to fit?
Title: Re: cr2hdr-r OSX batch conversion app (dng, CR2 ,MLV, RAW, HDR video)
Post by: Danne on October 17, 2015, 11:19:18 PM
I think something along the way like
Code: [Select]
-vf scale=1920:-1 Should keep a constant 1920 and the height will follow accordingly and leave the footage unstretched.
It would also be possible to change the aspect ratio straight in the text document which would leave it up to user to write whatever aspect ratio wanted.

How do you set the scaler flags?

Looks like there's a lot there to experiment with to try and find the best quality rescale.

Code: [Select]
sws_flags
Set the scaler flags. This is also used to set the scaling algorithm. Only a single algorithm should be selected.

It accepts the following values:

‘fast_bilinear’
Select fast bilinear scaling algorithm.

‘bilinear’
Select bilinear scaling algorithm.

‘bicubic’
Select bicubic scaling algorithm.

‘experimental’
Select experimental scaling algorithm.

‘neighbor’
Select nearest neighbor rescaling algorithm.

‘area’
Select averaging area rescaling algorithm.

‘bicublin’
Select bicubic scaling algorithm for the luma component, bilinear for chroma components.

‘gauss’
Select Gaussian rescaling algorithm.

‘sinc’
Select sinc rescaling algorithm.

‘lanczos’
Select Lanczos rescaling algorithm.

‘spline’
Select natural bicubic spline rescaling algorithm.

‘print_info’
Enable printing/debug logging.

‘accurate_rnd’
Enable accurate rounding.

‘full_chroma_int’
Enable full chroma interpolation.

‘full_chroma_inp’
Select full chroma input.

‘bitexact’
Enable bitexact output.

Good question. I uploade a version which simply scales without any scaler flags. Not sure what the default scaler is set to.
 You can write straight to the text file to change settings.

Updated the download again with more info on how to choose between scaler options. Double click scale.txt to read more. This document is also the one you put in the lut_hold folder.

In short. This is base nside the document
Code: [Select]
scale=1920:-1, If you want to change scaler flag it should look like this (example)
Code: [Select]
scale=1920:-1:flags=bicubic,Simply change the first in the document and put it in lut_hold folder. Somebody mentioned "spline" as a good scaler,
Code: [Select]
scale=1920:-1:flags=spline,

Thanks for the suggestion. Good to have it. Once the dan_log folder or PRORES folder is erased the latest one will be copied to the prores folder with the scale.txt file.
I also must rename or exclude the folder_ProRes444_lut from cr2hdr-r since it, s not updated like the stand alone version.

You can skp the folder_ProRes444 and keep the one with the lut at the end. It can,t replace cr2hdr-r since this is only working on folders with dng files. However I had plans on including folder_ProRes444_lut to cr2hdr-r as well but I think I,ll skip that part. I,m about to put up a new cr2hdr-r with some fixes.

I updated first post with version cr2hdr-r 12.0_align

- Included install procedure when using El Capitan.

Will have to do for now since I couldn,t get the migration to usr/local/align to work properly. Procedures are all provided in the install folder. Maybe if I get the the time I give the migration thingy another go with dfort :).

- Dual iso CR2 will now obtain the correct white balance values.

This is working through getting the multipliers from dcraw and then recalculated to fit AsShotNeutral values.
Thanks Chmee, dmilligan, A1ex and others discussing and solving problems related to white balance.

@Danne

If I've got "creeping" in the image what am I doing wrong? Don't know what it's called but it's as if there are loads of pixels in the image that are moving / changing exposure fast. 

Firmware: 1.2.3
Canon 5D Mark iii

Modules in ML:
Raw Video (mlv) 1920x1080
Dual iso 100 / 800

Video settings in camera:
Manual mode 
Shutter 1/50
(AWB or set WB gives the same result)
FPS: 23.976

Workflow:
Record -> transfer through kingston 3.0 usb card reader -> OSX.
Edit with your program cr2hdr-r (put MLVs in folder and run the program, yields folders with dngs and a wav)
DNGs are first created, and then re-created (for the dual iso conversion I assume).

When I edit these files in Davinci Resolve 11 the creeping is present. If I record under same circumstances but with standard RAW (not dual iso) then there is no creeping in the image.

What gives?

@rullebullefrulle.
I checked your files you sent and I say that the creeping is normal when shooting dual iso in non crop mode. To get the best result in dual iso it,s recommended to shoot in 3x crop mode. Examples here

Hello forum,

Yesterday I took a few DUAL-ISO shots and was trying to run cr2hdr-r to convert the dualiso files to DNG, but nothing happened.  its been months since I tried to convert Dual ISO raw images so I decided to go with the latest cr2hdr-r version (cr2hdr_12_3_align) and downloaded it.

Once downloaded, I first ran the install_uninstall.command  (I assume - and hope - that this command would remove the contents installed by the old cr2hdr-r versions?) - as expected it prompted for my password and I entered it, and the command ended with [Process completed].

Then i created a folder called "ML NOV 15" - and ran the cr2hdr-r.app - it proceeded to create those folders (HDR, PRORES, ORIGINAL) etc under the new folder.   I copied the DUAL ISO raw images into the  "ML NOV 2015" folder.     Then ran cr2hdr-r again.   It only moves  the CR2 files into the ORIGINAL folder - I didn't see DNGs created.

I also saw your DUALISO_TO_DNG app (which seems to be an easier app to use) - followed the steps from youtube ...   i created a new folder "DUAL ISO CR2" - right click on services and selected "dualiso_to_DNG".  It created   a "commands_list.txt" file and a new "ORIGINAL" folder, copied the CR2 files to the "ORIGINAL" folder and... there is no DNG file in sight :(    i tried to reboot my machine and re-do the steps - still no dice :(

Did i miss anything?  Your inputs are appreciated.

Hi Danne, I am still on Yosemite.

i am wondering that maybe because there's "way to many versions" of cr2hdr-r that i downloaded and installed over past few months may have messed something up?

Oh btw I forgot to mention that when I ran the cr2hdr-r and pointed it to the folder with my CR2 (there are only two CR2 files) - it just moved one CR2 , and i had to run cr2hdr-r one more time for it to move the 2nd CR2 to the ORIGINAL folder.

When I took the dual iso shots, they look ok, but the processed DNG looks all over-exposed.  Did my CR2 look over-exposed to you after it was processed?

Probably not bad but certain ACR versions will read the file as corrupt. Nothing wrong with the files.  You can try change camera model name with exiftool to eos 6D instead.

hi Danne, sorry i don't quite follow the instruction you shared.   i did download that eos 6d command but it gave me the "insufficient access" error message.

I believe the intent of this command file is to change the camera model for the converted DNG files from 70D to 6D, and once this command is run I'll reopen the DNG file and see how it looks like?

Anyway, i googled and found some instructions on changing the model using exif -
1. go to Terminal, and navigate to the folder containing the DNG files
2. type 'exiftool -l  <dng file name>' - it shows model = Canon EOS 70D
3. type 'exiftool -MODEL="Canon EOS 6D"  to change the model to 6D
4. type #2  again - this time the camera model is showing Canon EOS 6D

However, when i tried to open the  DNG file in Photoshop - which opens ACR - it still reads it as Canon EOS 70D  :(   
Appreciate your input!

@ciriuss925 The camera model shows up in a few different places in the EXIF data. What Danne's command is changing and what you are changing are different. Try this:

Code: [Select]
exiftool "-UniqueCameraModel=Canon EOS 6D" -overwrite_original
I'm surprised that there is still an issue with ACR. It has been updated several times since the problem was first pointed out in this forum.

hi dfort,

thank you for the share!  And actually I was able to finally run that Canon_EOS_6D.command!

I am using Photoshop CC 2014 which uses ACR 8.8 - I've read that ACR is now in version 9 and wondering if this 70D dual-iso DNG issue still persists?  Which version of ACR are you using, and are you still getting this problem?

Older versions works with 70D. I reckon the problem is a conflict between the color matrices which are the same for both 6D and the 70D.

the Canon_EOS_6D.command works now!   I followed that chmod command to update the permissions to the file and it worked wonders :)   ALL DNG files now open beautifully without over-exposing.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

You,re welcome. There could probably be a fix in the script that applies the 6D tag to the 70D dual iso files. Challenge would be separating those files from other DNG files from other cameras if you have mixed footage. Of course one could script a question to every file but would slow up things.

Is there a difference between cr2hdr-r OSX app and the cr2hdr- Plugin for lightroom, in the way it works with Dual ISO Video?

Post by: Danne on November 25, 2015, 05:18:31 PM
In the PRORES folder Cr2hdr-r applies same white level to the file to avoid flicker. It also adds a 3d lut(hardcoded) To bring out the most of the shadows and highlights to the prores file. Multithreading which makes it faster.

If you only transcode to DNG files (parent folder) it will add only same whitelevel and color matrix. The files will be usable in preferred NLE.

Kichetof is working on stuff for film sequences from what I,ve seen in his thread.

I,ve added a test out feature in MLP. Downloads in first post. It is an additional MLP_guide workflow which is intended to be installed together with MLP. The guide won,t work if not both workflows are installed. By choosing the MLP_guide instead of MLP on a folder the user will be presented with a few steps which will add settings files to the A_lut_hold folder. It is far from perfect and I,m not sure what more could be done with this through automator.
More info is to be find in the use_guide page 16-17.

Reworked the list thingy with automator. It,s now called MLP_look_base and it starts off with a look_preset bank followed by a full manual list. More info starting at page 16 in the user guide, first post.

Look_preset bank would be the real game changer here because not only it speeds up our workflow but this is also an excellent way of exporting dailies with ease and basically eliminate the need of an IT on set.

It's a friggin' Robot named MLP and Thanks, Danne!

Your welcome Sean. I also included a MLP_look_base(app) in there. Does the same as the workflow but more like cr2hdr-r in that sense you choose a folder with files instead of right clicking.

I'm having trouble getting MLP to produce ProRes files. i have my clips in DNG folders through MLVFS. I right-click a folder and select MLP, then the PRORES folder shows up and after I add a LUT to the hold folder and right-click the DNG folder again, the automator wheel spins for a little and then goes away. But no MOV file ever shows up. Is there a setting I have to enable or something?

Sorry but I've poured through the user guide and page after page of this forum with no answer, it's really baffling me...
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: Danne on December 18, 2015, 11:15:33 PM
Did you follow the howto file in the download? FFmpeg has to be installed for prores to be created.
MLP is kind of new and a follow up to cr2hdr-r so info on MLP starts around here. Should put up something about this in the first post I guess.
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: bwinter88 on December 19, 2015, 06:45:29 AM
Yea, I'm pretty sure it's converting because the fps_01, fps_02...files show up as it processes, but a movie file never actually appears.

I've tried this on two separate machines and the result is the same, clearly I'm doing something wrong. Can somebody give me some basic instructions to get to the point of converting to ProRes? The user guide never actually gives any step by step instructions.

Edit: Fixed it. Re-copied the binaries manually to ~/Library/Services/MLP/Contents/

However I still have another question! How do I convert to ProRes 422 instead? The text file specifies that ProRes 4444 is the default, and has an entry at the top, but it's pretty clearly not the command line to create ProRes 4444 files.

Shouldn't it be, for ProRes 422,

Code: [Select]
-pix_fmt yuv422p10or
Code: [Select]
-profile hqinstead of for ProRes 4444:
Code: [Select]
-pix_fmt yuv444p10
But the default (supposedly ProRes 4444) is
Code: [Select]
-c:v libx264 -preset slow -crf 10 -c:a copy -pix_fmt yuv420pWhich I have no clue, but it looks like some kind of h264 encoder, not ProRes 4444? I'm so confused now!
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: Danne on December 19, 2015, 07:37:13 AM
You can use the file called MLV_RAW_MOV_dng_FFmpeg_output.txt. Put it in A_lut_hold folder and change to whatever output you like. Change the top line of the document. You have to search the internet to explore more output settings. I included a few examples in there.

If you don,t use this document it defaults to prores4444.

Cool. Hope you find it useful. Feel free to post any examples using it.
The txt documents is to give more manual control and since I don,t know how to build a gui this is the way for now. Or try the list in MLP_look_base.

Post by: Piotr.23 on December 20, 2015, 07:23:59 PM
Danne, thanks for all of this, I really appreciate your work and the help of other ML gurus
It is very complicated though...

I am trying to "develop" a MLV movie with alternating low/high ISO HDR (image A/image B -> merged C).
In the "old" times, it was the HDR-workflow-051.zip script made by a1ex:
https://bitbucket.org/a1ex/magic-lantern/downloads
It worked on JPEGs

Now, it is yours, working on DNGs, though only for Mac

1. Is it correct that the only way to develop alternating low/high ISO HDR MLVs is to run folder_ProRes444_lut service twice, and create an additional HDR folder, as in this video 12:47
I wasn't able to use "MLV" service instead of folder_ProRes444_lut  service... and I'm not sure which is more recent

2. This technique produced a resulting MOV file.
How to prohibit the script from deleting the "merged" C files? To use them in, e.g., DaVinci Resolve?

3. Could you provide the basic bash scripts that sort out the A and B images from the folder with DNGs and create the merged C images please? Having all the binaries for Windows, and rewriting the bash script, why not to use that technique also in Windows, instead of the old Alex's HDR-workflow-051 (which is still the greatest thing on Win :) ?

Thanks in advance and best wishes | P

Hi Piotr. folder_Prores is replaced by MLP first post. It,s the better way of working with HDR files. Please feel free to modify and share improvements.
The way enfuse works it enfuses tiff intemediates which are created int an output folder. These tiffs are the one you could use in DaVinci resolve.

You can start by erasing the
Code: [Select]
rm –r output line all the way in the end of the three scripts that starts with process_enfuse_XX.txt files
Then you double click A_move_content_to_workflow.command
Check the pic.

(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fs12.postimg.org%2F960tjmnb1%2FScreen_Shot_2015_12_20_at_20_10_12.png&hash=3d2e292751a00b81fb4ff32085dc80b8)

Then you install MLP by double clicking it

All tiffs that,s created are in those output folders. A follow up would be to rename the folder so it will be suitable in DaVinci Resolve. Maybe move the folder out of the dng folder and so on…

You could try replacing
Code: [Select]
rm –r output to
Code: [Select]
mv output ../output
mv ../output ../"$file"

I did this in the process_enfuse_XX.txt file. You can do something similar in the other two scripts. Only change the "$file" accordingly.
Don,t forget to double click A_move_content_to_workflow.command two write changes before install.

Thanks Danne. I did, but this is for MPL workflow, not the folder_ProRes444_lut workflow.
In the folder_ProRes444_lut workflow, one creates HDR folder and it works.

Here is what I'm trying to process, plus the file structure of the folder I'm calling "RAW Tests". You can see the folders MLP have created, as per the manual, and I'm trying to process DNGs into ProRes (from MLV originals)

http://i.imgur.com/GvSJ4Fi.jpg (http://i.imgur.com/GvSJ4Fi.jpg)

Yes, it did show green text.

Here is the "Contents" folder inside the MLP workflow app inside /Library/services/

http://i.imgur.com/2QNeyRl.jpg (http://i.imgur.com/2QNeyRl.jpg)

What's happening is, when I choose the MLP option under "Services" to process into ProRes, the cog in the status bar shows and a file quickly appears labeled "fps" and then disappears, quickly followed by the cog and process of MLP stopping altogether.

Are you uisng a recent version? I fixed a bug that wouldn,t start the workflow if the folder was named RAW before. Just tried over here and it works. Not sure what is going on.
When you install a new version you can run the install binary command and it will ask if you want to recopy the old binaries before installing.
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: BatteriesNotIncluded on January 01, 2016, 10:58:14 PM
Latest version. I have since reinstalled everything and still no luck.

I'm missing something or it's clashing and causing it to crash.

bwinter88 seemed to have had a similar problem a few days ago here: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=13512.msg159022;topicseen#msg159022 (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=13512.msg159022;topicseen#msg159022)

He seemed to have cured it by manually re-installing the binaries. I've tried that to no avail.

Just to confirm, then:

0. I've installed MLP. I've done nothing else.
1. I just have a MLV file in a folder called "RAW Tests"
2. I choose MLP from the services menu. It creates the two LUT folders.
3. I choose MLP again, it creates the DNG folder from the one MLV file. It moves the file to a seperate originals folder.
4. I choose MLP again (to create ProRes) and this is where I'm having the issue.

Note: MLP has never created a ProRes folder for me?

@BatteriesNotIncluded

Just wondering, what is in your A_lut_hold directory? You should have a file names MLV_RAW_dng_straight_to_prores444.txt in there and you shouldn't need to run MLP a third time in order to create the QuickTime files.

Have you tried renaming the "RAW Tests" directory to something else, preferably something without spaces?

Finally, how far from the root directory is "RAW Tests" located? I've had problems with various programs if the path is very long and/or contains spaces.

With continued support from @Danne, the riddle has been solved and I'm now able to process ProRes from DNG files. (with thanks to @dfort for the other suggestion)

For those who may encounter the same issue - and it pertained to dcraw - here is the fix:

First install "homebrew":


1. Open Terminal.app from inside Applications>Ultilities
2. Copy and paste the following:

Code: [Select]
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
3. Hit enter and let it download. An installer window may popup. Follow those steps too.
4. If Terminal is asking you to hit "return", make sure you do to finish the installation.

After homebrew is installed:

5. Copy and paste the following:

Code: [Select]
brew install dcraw
6. Hit enter.

You're done. Try again and you will hopefully be processing ProRes files.

Gotcha.

Now that I'm able to process ProRes, a quick question:

I'm editing the dng's with ACR in Adobe Bridge. I apply the changes to all the dng's and Finder reflects the changes. However, when I then process into ProRes it's the original RAW image. Any thoughts?
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: Danne on January 03, 2016, 12:45:54 AM
ACR is a stand alone system. MLP works by working with dcraw and FFmpeg settings and through 3d luts(ProRes files). The changes made in MLP to the dng files will reflect in ACR, DaVinci resolve, lightroom etc but not vice versa.

Updated first post with a new MLP version containing a new feature. The looks_creator.command. On page 19 in the user guide you can find out more.
What it does it runs previewer functions while you are selecting settings from menu windows. You can also call MlRawViewer(hi Baldand :)) from this script if it is installed in MLP. See the Howto file about this.

This is a BRILLIANT move on your part by combining MLRawViewer within MLP for an exclusive previewer while having the ability to fine tune our files in a much more complex depth in order to get the most out of our videos altogether with your app!

I salute to you once again and thanks for starting an incredible way into the new year ... I'll be testing/playing and will report back asap.

New version again. It includes a media pipe through FFplay. This means we can preview footage in altered MLP settings more or less in real time.
I tweaked settings in dcraw (-h, half color) a fast FFmpeg transcoding option and scaling down the footage to 800 x 450 while streaming. These settings can be changed through txt files. Check page 19 in the user_guide.

The FFplay stream works when right clicking folders of dng files. Does awesome work in dmilligans MLVFS but also works on folders of dng files created in MLP. Whatever setting changed in A_lut_hold folder will be seen in the media stream.
This also means I had to rewrite ProRes transcoding in conjunction with MLVFS. Now you simply right click the MLVFS partition to start the processing (page 8, user_guide)

Here is a little something for HDR movie enthusiasts. This completely slipped my and anyone elses radar I guess.
By exporting using the filter_complex option
Code: [Select]
-vf tblend=all_mode=average in FFmpeg you will get on the fly exports of HDR footage. And most important, the exported files will still keep the same fps. No image interpolation is needed. This speeds things up considerably as it will export footage like regular ProRes exports. I made it work both with H.264 and MLV/RAW files and also with MLVFS. When the tblend option is selected FFplay will also playback HDR folders of dng files and HDR H.264(right click the movie file) files as regular looking files when previewing.

Check page 5 and 7 in the user_guide

Seems recent dcraw and FFplay player wouldn,t work because of dependency issues. Reverted back to a static dcraw and a update about what could be done to have FFplay player working. (Download in first post)

Install notes FFplay

Following instructions will install FFplay and FFmpeg to your system(outside of MLP). This is needed for FFplay to work. (SDL library needed)

From page 23 in the user_guide

Open up terminal

1 - Install homebrew by entering this command

ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"Press enter

2 -  Install FFplay/FFmpeg by entering following in terminal
Code: [Select]
brew install ffmpeg --with-fdk-aac --with-ffplayPress enter

You are now able to right click MLP on folders of dng files and also MOV files if using  the HDR_tblend_average.txt file.

Hey guys,wondering if anyone else is having a hard time importing the .dng files produced from MLP in After Effects.I am using MLP on .mlv files on Mac 10.9.5,and have no problem creating the .mov files.But I was trying to import .dng files into After Effects 13.6,and for some reason after the Camera Raw adjustments it will crash After Effects.I also converted the same .mlv files with MlRawViewer to .dng,and had no problem importing,adjusting in Camera Raw,and completing the import with no crash issues.Perhaps someone can let me know if I need to pull a specific .txt file into A_lut_hold folder to prevent the crash.Any advise would be great,the pro ress files look great,but I just wanted to see if I could push the .dng files a little further then the pro ress.If a crash log or a sample of the .dng is needed,I can provide for sure.Thanks again guys, and @danne this is an amazing app and I am just trying to get used to it sir.

Interesting. And welcome aboard the MLP thread :).
Could you.
1- upload a sample dng?
2- tell me if you have all the binaries installed in MLP?
3- what txt files were used in A_lut_hold folder?

Thanks. It works over here in AE CS 6. If you have audio try remove the wav file and see if that helps. You could also reprocess your MLV file and this time add the MLV_RAW_dng_repack_16bit.txt file in the A_lut_hold folder as well before processing you dng files. This is for use in premiere pro but maybe it helps in AE too? If nothing works you could maybe upload a short sample MLV of a problematic file as well?

You have to right click on a folder or a file to use MLP. Are you right clicking in empty space?

Just trying to follow your steps. This is what works for me.

1 - Right click any folder containing RAW/MLW/CR2/MOV/mov files and the services "MLP" option appears.
2 - Right click straight on files like MOV, dng, DNG, RAW, MLV and services "MLP" is showing.

Is there any other way to do this?

Sorry if i'm not thorough enough.

I copied all my RAW files to a folder on my LACIE disk called RAW TEST SHOOT. I right click on the folder, and i don't see any Services tab. Not even if i right click on some of the RAW files. The only time i get the Services tab is when I'm on my Desktop and right click a random folder.

Ok, Could you try this.
Press the buttons cmd g
When opens up go here
~/Library/Services/MLP.workflow/Contents/

(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fs9.postimg.org%2Fvs9nx45lb%2FScreen_Shot_2016_01_18_at_00_49_27.png&hash=ada6562894cfb41fe42b248e04583d16)

Take out some items from the contents folder and then put them back again. Try A_dan_log_3d_luts and HDR_align and put them back again. Sometimes automator has to be "woken up". Now if that doesn.t work you could try renaming your folders to something more casual like My_files  or something.
Do you have the latest download from the first post by the way?

Here,s  a little workflow of how to use HDR "on the fly" function with canon native H.264 MOV files.
By adding following files to the A_lut_hold folder all functions needed will be available.
HDR_tblend_average.txt
HDR_tblend_average_half_FPS.txt
FFplay_Histogram.txt


First file is filmed in 60 fps, the rest is filmed in 50 fps.

Thanks for your help Danne

I upgraded to El Capitan with a clean install and now it seems to work. I'm a little curious though. I started conforming about 64gb of footage and it takes forever.

I've conformed 9 RAW files each about 1 GB. It took about 32 min in total. I used to use RAWMagic to conform my files, and i just did a quick test and i was able to conform a single file of 1GB in less than 30 seconds. What's the difference between MLP and RAWMagic except for all the extra settings?

Maybe it's my workflow. This is what i do. I right click the folder containing my RAW files. I get the two folders A_lut_hold and A_dan_log_3d_luts. I delete the prores text file cause i don't need them. I then run looks_creator.command and hit "r" to conform the files.

Best, Morten

HI, nice to hear that it works. Are yu using the MLV_RAW_dng_repack_16bit.txt file? If you don,t work in premiere it shouldn,t be needed and will save some time. Exiftool is the other process that will prolong processing since it is inserting missing metadata.

No, i'm only using the standard files.

Hi,
and thanks for the great app!
Cant seem to get all functions working, lately the HDR conversion. Followed the procedure in the video, but i can only preview, not write a new file. Tried re-installing the app, maybe I should re-install the binaries also?

The app codes for a while and then exits and put the .mov file i the A_HDR_folder. Any suggestions?
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: Danne on January 19, 2016, 08:23:10 PM
What HDR workflow are you using? Seems FFmpeg needs a -strict -2 in the syntax in some circumstances. I have a new version of MLP coming up later tonight.

Could you do following.

1 - upload a sample file
2 - check if all binaries are present. Should say so if you used the script.
2 - what files are you using in the A_lut_hold folder?

I, ll check later. Should work. Meanwhile, download the latest version and run the binary script prior to installing. It will ask if you want to reinstall the old binaries. Not sure if it will grab dcraw as well. It should be updated to the version in latest download.

New version up. Reworked main script a lot due to some changes before. It should also not mix folders named to files name with the actual files now. A lot of different processes to keep track of here.

@aschille84
Just checked your file and it rendered perfectly over here. A lot of aliasing on the 6D, you might wanna turn the sharpening down and also use the disable_sharpening.txt file. I put these in the A_lut_hold folder.
FFplay_Histogram.txt
HDR_MOV_disable_sharpening.txt
HDR_tblend_average_half_FPS.txt
HDR_tblend_average.txt


Here,s you file rendered.

Thanks @Danne!

It works for me; I was able to process the HDR MOV!
However, some points to note:

The
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
command needs the Xcode.app to be pre-installed (and this is > 4 Gb download)

The
brew install ffmpeg --with-fdk-aac --with-ffplay
command installs new version of ffmpeg in /usr/local/Cellar/ffmpeg/2.8.5/bin folder (and adds links to /usr/local/bin/ folder)

So, in order to use the MLP, one needs to remove the old ffmpeg (I renamed it by:
1. cd /Users/piotr/Library/Services/MLP.workflow/Contents/
2. mv ffmpeg ffmpeg.old
)

And, to copy the new ffmpeg installed by brew into MLP folder:
cp -p /usr/local/bin/ffmpeg /Users/piotr/Library/Services/MLP.workflow/Contents/

Then, MLP was able to create the HDR version of the MOV file

One thing I cannot fix is the looks_creator.command
Every time I use it, the OS X says it was downloaded by Chrome and is dangerous... Have to go to the security settings and allow to use it. How to disable this warning?

Thanks again! | P

4gb, have to find another way to make FFplay work then. There is actually mpv player https://mpv.io/installation/ , a fork of mplayer which also stream FFmpeg content which works too but without sdl. Lacks the wave monitor it seems unfortunately.

I downloaded a recent version from the link in the HOWTO file which works. Older FFmpeg will probably not work. Are you using the latest MLP version?

Hmmm... The versions are not numbered or dated, are they? The way I update is by reading this thread. If new binaries are needed, I install them (for instance, the ffmpeg via brew). I then download and unzip the MLP.ZIP file and click MLP.workflow. The system says there is an old one, and shall it be replaced. I say 'yes'.

Is there another way to upgrade the MLP? | P

I had the same experience, thanks for sharing.


@Piotr.23
I replaced dcraw due to been having a version that needed libraries before. Therefore I would recommend to download the latest version and dcraw will already be included. However, since FFmpeg are updating and changing commandline outputs I had to change some of the commands in MLP. This will be problematic when using the script which asks to redownload the former versions installed. So suggestion. Either redownload all binaries and run the script again or replace FFmpeg after you have run the script and then install. Quite the hassle but that,s what we get in this open source community :)

Guys, I'm not making things up: using the terminal, the command
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
on my El Capitan 10.11.2 stopped and asked for the Xcode.app to be installed via App Store. And I have no problem with this! just saying it took a day via wifi (which is fine)

Re: dcraw: the version that is in my /Users/piotr/Library/Services/MLP.workflow/Contents/ folder is v9.26.
So it seems to be the same as in MLP.ZIP/source_binaries/dcraw_GPLv2+.txt

MLP is pretty... experimental and needs some knowledge in shell use.
I'm just sharing my observations, perhaps some of ML users may find them useful | P

Post by: Danne on January 20, 2016, 08:49:23 PM
No one is making things up. Simply sharing different experiences.
Well my advice is this. Change to a fresh FFmpeg if anyone been using MLP for a while and wants to download the latest MLP version. First time users can simply follow instructions in howto.
Regarding xcode hassle. This will only be needed if you want FFlay as a previewer.
Anybody can feel free to participate in building a static version of FFplay. I havn, t figured out how yet.

*Updated MLP

If you have an older version of MLP already installed and needs to replace ffmpeg.

1 - Download the latest version of MLP and download ffmpeg from the download link in the HOWTO file and move it to the Place_binaries_here folder.

2 - Run the move_binaries.command and and follow the instructions.(Press yes to recopy and press yes again to overwrite ffmpeg)

If you,re a new user simply follow the HOWTO and disregard what,s written above.
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: Danne on January 21, 2016, 01:55:28 PM
Uploaded a new version. Contains a link to an alternative media player which doesn,t have to install external libraries. It,s called mpv and instructions are in HOWTO file. You can still run FFplay by installing it on the system if you rather have that(will be chosen before mpv if both players are installed) Some additional info on page 23 in the user_guide.

*updated the move_binaries.command now so it should be easier to follow especially if you want to put in something new in the PLace_binaries_here folder continuing with an older build.

Uploaded a MLP version with the following changes.

- folder names for MLV files will contain the date from the actual record date instead of the date you actually transcodes to dng files.
 
- inserted dfort,s fine script which fixes the focus pixel issues for cameras like eos M, 650D, 100D, 700D.

The script handles these problems automatically by calculating the map coordinates on the fly from a collection of fpm files. Still a work in progress. More info in this thread. http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=16054.msg162313#msg162313
Note that this pixel maps works when exporting to Prores and not to the actual dng files. Check out MLVFS for dng handling.

Would be really nice if people with the affected cams could test and report the picture quality and if it works as it should. Thanks dfort and others involved in fixing these long lasting issues.

Whew ... once again it has been too long since I last hung out in this fabulous cave of yours, Danne, and for that I apologize.  :-\

Last night I ran a few old files from SL1 just to see how the Focus Pixel Fix works on the fly. I am pleased to say that it works well for Non-Dual-ISO footage but then when I tried running the same quick test with Dual-ISO files which works OK but not as much as it would with the None-Dual-ISO files (I remember @dfort mentioned that this was a still work in progress) however I admit that all of is so fly!

Please see below of my two quick tests comparisons (even tho I am still trying to manage to get the FFplay to show up) and play the footage in previews as oppose to the Tiff's (must be an user error on my part even tho I followed the instructions on the looks_creator.command) but maybe I need to install a missing specific binary that I'll need in order to make this one feature work other than that I AM IN LOVE with the new rendering which spits out the Original Dates from day of shoot instead of when we rendered them. This is HUGE and definitely makes our post lives easier by lightyears! Thanks for implementing @dfort's brilliant concepts into your amazing app to keep things as simple as possible. Hence @dmilligan's infamous words of courtesy "KISS (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=16054.msg162525#msg162525KISS)" which applies to everything else in life, right?

Also Special THANKS to @dfort for your drudgery work on the FPF -- it was indeed such an uphill battle so far!



More to come... :)

Eliminating the focus pixels on dual iso is still a bit of a challenge. Combining some chroma smoothing with the focus pixel fixer helps.

I like how Danne incorporated focus pixel fixing so it is invisible to the user.

Yes, it is a work in progress, like all things in Magic Lantern.

To use FFplay/mpv media previewer you simply right click a folder containing dng files.

If you want the 5 fps media previewer you right click a MLV or RAW file. To activate this function add the MLV_RAW_player.txt to the A_lut_hold folder. This works outside the looks_creator.command.

Also updated MLP with the latest pixel map files from dfort

Edit your DNG files as you normally would. They can be dark so then you push your blacks. Work with your sliders in lightroom for instance.

New version up.
Been having good collaborations with dfort who,s refining his pixel map script which works through dcraw. He created an awesome script which works in MLP. Check out the script here https://bitbucket.org/daniel_fort/ml-focus-pixels/src
For MLV files the focus pixel fixing is pretty much automated in MLP and now with some minimal manual user handling it also works with RAW files as well.
I think we,ll soon can change to use mlv lite http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=16650.0
which handles metadata much better but there will always be some need for handling of RAW files so here is one way to do this. The affected cameras are.

Canon eos M, 650D, 700D, 100D.

no pixel list added
(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fs13.postimg.org%2Frme5edas7%2Fimage.png&hash=629e748e3d23c8c02844b2b266fb790d)

Workflow
1 - Add your RAW files from any of the affected cameras into a folder. Right click the folder and select MLP the usual way. On first run it creates the usual folder structure. On second run a menu screen will pop up with some alternatives. It will find out automatically if the RAW file contains dng files from any of the affected cameras. Info is found via exiftool.

2 - From the menu select you camera and movie mode. Your RAW folder can include mixed footage sizes within the same mv mode. You can,t mix mv modes however. One mv mode at the time. After selection MLP will continue processing. A dead_pixel_list.txt file will be created inside the folders of dng files.

Ah, ha ... that's right. Thanks for the friendly reminder. 16-bit would have a slight edge over 14-bit when it comes to color-grading, correct?

I'm actually currently rendering some 2.5k Dual-ISO test footage I shot with an Opteka 6.5mm lens (I know it doesn't work for full frame since its made for APC-C sensors) but hey if it works then why not?

Curious if I'm allowed to mix old RAW with MLV Lite files together if I want to run MLP or best to keep them separated? lol

Stand by...

Some quick 2.5K test shots on 5D3 w an Opteka 6.5mm and rendered entirely in MLP.

This is what I used in the A_Lut_Hold Folder.

(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=https%3A%2F%2Ffarm2.staticflickr.com%2F1639%2F24691891833_7b44082119_o.png&hash=b3d800c247163911247ebf8215efc55b) (https://flic.kr/p/DBWpbZ)

Then I took ProRes4444 and Color graded them in FCPX with each Non Dual-ISO and Dual-ISO have their own separate setting under LUT Utility.

(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=https%3A%2F%2Ffarm2.staticflickr.com%2F1524%2F25318648995_23c7c81d10_n.jpg&hash=acfd30e8487959e7604d45fe3f08bf00) (https://flic.kr/p/EzjGfX) (https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=https%3A%2F%2Ffarm2.staticflickr.com%2F1694%2F24691892513_f73b35dfcf_n.jpg&hash=3a6e2fb52264e3639df14f2726ce22d1) (https://flic.kr/p/DBWpoH)

I know it may not be the best solution to try and color grade Dual-ISO files AFTER rendering in MLP ... May need to do another test run and perhaps do the color grade process in MLP prior to exporting into ProRes4444, ya?

Be sure to watch it in 2K HD under your Vimeo viewing settings for best quality.


Thanks @Danne for making it possible to use your logs especially for Dual-ISO ... Up next I think I'll need to steal some of of your old custom LUTS that you previously made to apply on Dual-ISO footage.  :P

Alway nice to see the dynamic range in dual iso. I put in a 3.6 gamma lift aswell for dual iso. You could try changing to that from the 2.4 gamma.txt. if you like you can also try a stronger highlight regain in the dcraw_any_command.txt file. Open it up and put in -H 6 instead of -H 2.
Thanks for sharing.
By the way. The 14-16bit repack won,t give better image quality. It,s only numbers for picky premiere.

Post by: DeafEyeJedi on February 28, 2016, 02:03:09 AM
True. I think the DR can be achieved better if I instead use the 3.6 gamma lift per your suggestion. Forgot that Dual-ISO requires this and Thanks for yet another friendly reminder!

Btw, I just decided to shoot some quick HDR test and since I can't go into crop-mode while recording slo-mo @ 60fps ... So instead of using crop-mode (because all I see on the 5D3 is a square of the 6.5mm lens made for APS-C sensors) I then randomly fiddled with the aspect ratio down to 1280x432 which magically fitted into the entire 6.5mm (well just literally) and I couldn't believe what I was seeing and the best part was shooting this in RAW.

Now I gotta digest these files and hopefully they'll come out well. Need a friendly reminder here ... Which HDR settings is best used for RAW footage (not H264 in which I'll test later on) and I'll be much appreciated for your kind suggestions as always, Danne!

Some new HDR FuN sTuFf that I decided to see what can be done with an Opteka 6.5mm f3.5 specifically aimed for APS-C cameras but once I fiddled with the Aspect Ratio while in 60p mv720 on 5D3 (managed to get into the cropped part of the lens) without the need of using crop-mode (it wouldn't work with slo mo anyway since its limited to 30p only) and so the fun part begins...

•These are screenshots of the ML settings I fiddled with that did the trick for this particular lens...

The advantage of filming HDR in mv720 60fps compared with dual iso is to be able to use lenses in a non cropped movie mode. The image artifacts are less noticeable in HDR as well. Now this is not fully true when filming raw since 60fps would yield a compromise in image size to get continuous filming. Try H.264 as well. 100-3200 for instance.

Post by: DeafEyeJedi on February 28, 2016, 10:22:28 AM
That's true about HDR having an advantage over Dual-ISO with this situation ... However I don't think I can use this particular lens when shooting in H.264 since I won't be able to downsize the resolution in order to "compensate or hide" the APS-C cropped effect or in other words a gigantic squared vignette effect!

Decided to do two different kinds of tests w 5D3. One with H.264 (in two different Picture Profiles) for experimenting purposes. Also shot another in MLV_Lite which then all converted nicely in MLP.

Cool stuff. No ghosting. Now 14mm would be good for MLV lite since cropping to get continuous filming. H264 works very well on 5D mark 3 due to less aliasing comparing with other cameras.

Post by: dfort on February 29, 2016, 05:24:34 PM
Interesting tests and a good argument in favor of using a smaller image size at a higher frame rate (http://magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=15306). Though with HDR the frame rate is halved after processing as opposed to dual_iso, right? Nice work with MLP lining up the light/dark frames, very little ghosting in the footage.

There were some glitches in the MLV Light footage. It looks like some frames were corrupted and recording didn't stop automatically. You might want to show an example to dmilligan.

(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=https%3A%2F%2Ffarm2.staticflickr.com%2F1609%2F24748477264_056665abeb_z.jpg&hash=4bf1ca1eeb8942dfe8d325c2d0b5356f)

The 14mm on the 5D3 slightly cropped so that it approximates the area of an APS-C (Super 35mm) sensor will give you about the field of view that Emmanuel Lubezki "Chivo" favored on Gravity, Birdman and The Revenant. That's an Academy Awards "Hat Trick" that rarely happens. Of course a 14mm lens won't guarantee you an Oscar.

Fps is only halfed when using the HDR_tblend_average_FPS.txt filter. That,s the beauty of the FFmpeg tblend filter.
Well corrupt frames could defeat the whole reason to kill the RAW format in favor of MLV lite project. I still havn,t found any corrupt frames either in raw or mlv nor mlv lite. More tests then.

Hi slingbacker. MLP doesn,t merge the dng files itself but exports to a movie file. The dng files itself are still light/dark.
By the way, you write dng as DNG which indicates dual iso processing. you havn,t mixed any of the processes? Just to be sure.

Not sure how closely you read first post and the user_guide but you need FFmpeg installed and the MLV_RAW_dng_straight_to_prores444.txt inside the A_lut_hold folder to start processing prores files. Or you can also simply rerun "r" after the dng processing is finished or right click the folder you have your folders with dng files a second to time to start the movie processing.

If you want some more efficient help I suggest you create a screen record of your installation steps or at least describe them as carefully as possible. Also describe exactly what kind of files and what camera and what mac OS you are using.

@slingbacker
If you try to merge two DNG files into one new dng file that is not gonna work. If you want to create a HDR prores movie from the DNG files please check page 9 in the user_guide(first post).

I tried working with HDR_merge which in fact can achieve merging of dng files using libraw and through command line but there is other problems such as not producing linear files and he,s using dng deflate compression which won,t work in premiere or Davinci resolve. Feel free to ask him if he could create something useful for video as well as for stills.

 Back in November 2015 I had issue with the DNGs created with the "folder_ProRes444_lut 12 5"  Service being shown as over-exposed in Adobe Camera Raw. You had provided the explanation that the 6d and 70d DNGs created by the "folder_ProRes444_lut 12 5 " Service are not being rendered correctly by later versions of ACR thus you created the Canon_EOS_6D.command to fix the issue. 

Recently i took some dual iso shots again and I tried to execute the same workflow but when I double-clicked on "Canon_EOS_6D.command" file after the DNGs were created by the ProRes444 service a terminal window appears and spits out the following error messages:

args: exiftool: No such file or directory
logout
Saving session...
...copying shared history...
...saving history...truncating history files...
...completed.


I had the Canon_EOS_6D.command file copied into the MAIN folder where the DNGs are located.

Am I missing a step ?  Your advice is appreciated.  Sorry for the bother.

Don,t remember exactly what,s in the command. Could you upload it. Or if it say -name try changing that word to -iname.

Hi Danne, sorry for the late reply - here s the link to the original  Canon_EOS_6D.command.

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BwB_poTzzVK8YVI5TVhIS0c3QVk

I tried your suggestion - I duplicated the file and I see "-name" and  changed it to "-iname" in the duplicate copy (not the original)  but I am still getting the same error as before when I tried to control-click /open the file:

xargs: exiftool: No such file or directory
logout
Saving session...
...copying shared history...
...saving history...truncating history files...
...completed.

[Process completed]


BTW the only change between November 2015 and today is that I was still using Yosemite then and now using El Capitan. 
Thank you!

It means you don,t have exiftool onto your system anymore. You can use exiftool from within MLP or you can download and install it to your system via homebrew or exiftool homepage.
I made some changes to the script. If you open the script by right clicking and choose open with TextEdit you can erase everything with this and if you have MLP installed it should work after this. You can have the script next to your folders instead of inside the folders or next to the files as before if you like.
Code: [Select]
workingDir=`dirname "$0"`
cd "${workingDir}"

find . -maxdepth 2 -name '*.DNG' -print0 | xargs -0 ~/Library/Services/MLP.workflow/Contents/exiftool "-UniqueCameraModel=Canon EOS 6D" -overwrite_original

If you want the old script to work you can download exiftool from Phil Harvey,s webpage and install it.
http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/Image-ExifTool-10.13.tar.gz
or download it via homebrew.

Enter following in terminal to install homebrew
Code: [Select]
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"then write lines below to install exiftool
Code: [Select]
brew install exiftool

Thank you Danne - I downloaded the latest exiftool (10.13) dmg file from Phil Harvey's webpage as you indicated, and installed the pkg.  Thats all I did - and now the Canon_EOS_6D.command is working! Appreciate your input as I've always been.

I will take a look at the MLP - wish there is a video tutorial for using the MLP hehe.

Yeah I know, there is a lot to learn. However if you have anything special you want to use it for it,s almost the simpliest way. To start out with one function and learn about that one.

What I did wrong? I succeeded one time to delete focus pixels and convert it to prores 444 mode. Then nothing.

so nowadays the mlp makes this:
1) services and I click MLP and it creates folders.
2) do it second time and he asks camera (100d) and I'll choose it
3) photoshop opens and says this:
http://imgur.com/7iPuZnj
4) it converts raw file to dng photos and prores 444 file, but it dont remove hot pixels.

So, what i do wrong?

Hey Danne thank you :)

I decide to give MLP a try - am pretty 'skittish' as it seems to be more of a video processor than a stills photo :D

So I have downloaded the MLP zip and uncompressed it - I am looking at the instructions in the Howto file and it says to download quite a few files.  I googled a few - sox, ffmpeg - and found that these are for audio/videos.   If I just need to do stills photos, do I need to download all of them or just a select few? 
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: Danne on March 20, 2016, 08:24:40 PM
For still CR2 dual iso files you don,t need to download anything additional. Check page 2 and page 4 in the user_guide after you installed MLP. Good luck :)

New MLP in first post.
Been spending some time trying to learn basics on timecode. Been disussing with dfort checking and verifying information sharing valuable knowledge on different angles on using timecode in real life plus I,ve been reading different posts on the topic. It,s just a little number in the dng file but for some people probably very useful. Anyway. I had some necessary help from Phil Harvey, creator of exiftool who created a config script which made it work in MLP. Big thanks for this help.
http://u88.n24.queensu.ca/exiftool/forum/index.php/topic,7117.msg35940.html#msg35940

No dropframe inclusion.

This is a start.
For now it will count frames like this
24, 23.976, 23.98, 48 fps              00-23
25, 50 fps                                    00-24
30, 29.97, 60                               00-29

@Oswald -- curious to see your file samples from your 100D as I also own a SL1 myself and works well with MLP as far as I'm concerned.

@Danne -- Excellent progress on the TimeCode feature (Thanks @Dfort for the suggestion) and I am actually pleased by @Phil Harvey's work with exiftool.

Will definitely download this and test it out. Thanks, D!

Darkframe processing through mlv_dump

New version of MLP in the first post.

Always been curious about how to work with the average function in mlv_dump but never got around to do it until now. Been having some conversations with Baldavenger about how this works and I finally think I got the hang of it. Take a look here on Baldavengers excellent post on the topic.
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=15801.msg164620#msg164620

This is a dark frame. You,ll need one. Quote from link above.
Baldavenger
Quote
So for the example above, put the lens cap on the camera (with the correct settings) and record a few seconds. If you were to view the frames of the MLV you would see almost black frames (except for a magenta looking noise). A Dark Frame is a single frame that is to be subtracted from every frame of the destined (actual footage) MLV, so an average frame is made from the few seconds that were shot with the lens cap on.

Big gratitude toward g3gg0 for fixing a bug in the mac version of mlv_dump and for implementing the average darkframe function in mlv_dump.

I put in quite a few things to be used around darkframes. Some ideas are related to Baldavengers thoughts on a workflow, (storing sets of darkframes), other ideas are naturally following the MLP philosophy.
I will try to present my ideas through a few scenarios through pictures and short youtube tutorials. Don,t hesitate to ask or point out things or ideas.

Scenario 1
Full automation
1 – Right click a folder and select MLP to build the folder structure
2 – Place your darkframe footage inside A_lut_hold folder and your footage next to the A_lut_hold folder
3 – Right click your folder once again to start processing

During the process MLP will create the averaged files in the A_lut_hold folder and they will be renamed with camera model, resolution, iso and fps. The original darkframes will be placed in a folder named darkframe_orig inside the A_lut_hold folder. Next MLP will start processing each file in your folder and if it matches the info from the darkframe it will apply the averaged mlv file from the A_lut_hold folder to your movie footage. If no match it will process the mlv files as it normally would.

Scenario 2
Creating darkframe mlv files
1 – Right click on a folder containing your filmed darkframe footage
2 – Place your darkframe footage in the A_lut_hold folder
3 – Run MLP on the folder and your averaged darkframes will be created and renamed

Movie tutorial

Scenario 3
Storing darkframe footage to 05_my_darkframes folder
1 – Once your darkframe mlv files are done you can move them to a storage folder called 05_my_darkframes folder. You can do this by manually move them or simply right click the A_lut_hold folder
2 – If your 05_my_darkframes folder contains darkframe files you can store them to your system by right clicking selecting MLP on the folder. The files will then be stored to ~/Library/Services/looks/05_my_darkframes folder
3 – By selecting the MLV_RAW_my_darkframes.txt file and putting it in the A_lut_hold folder you will activate darkframe processing of mlv footage only now it will match the footage with the files in the 05_my_darkframes folder instead of from the A_lut_hold folder
4 – If you want to erase the darkframes stored in your system you can do this by right clicking MLP on the A_dan_log_3d_luts folder.

Scenario 4
Adding and renaming darkframe mlv files to the 05_my_darkframes folder
1 – In order for MLP to accept the files in the workflow the darkframes must be prefixed with avg_. If you choose to add random darkframe mlv files to the 05_my_darkframes folder they will be renamed according to metadata info following camera model, resolution, iso and fps
2 – Add your files to the 05_my_darkframes folder and rename the content by right clicking MLP on the 05_my_darkframes folder

Off I go to join into the Darkside ... Man I'm not even sure if I should do 'Scenario #2' first to create my average dark frame files from MLV (shoot some with caps on) prior to do 'Scenario #1' or vice versa?

I just downloaded the latest MLP and about to shoot some quick test files in ISO 1600, ISO 3200 and ISO 6400 ... Thanks D and may the force be with you!

Once again SPECIAL THANKS to @baldavenger for the implementation of your work as well as to @g3gg0 for the mlv_dump update!

*edit*

For the DarkFrames MLV's that I shot (ISO 1600, 3200, 6400) for each ... do I rename them into a proper name without ruining the MLV file itself, correct? (Just did and all seems fine and normal)

*edit #2*

Looking good so far...

However, I just noticed that Crop-Mode MLV's won't respond to DarkFrame's rendering ... is this to be expected? My wrong I forgot to shoot a dark frame (w caps on) for crop-mode. D'oh!

I also plan on doing another test in increments of 200, 400, 800, 2000, etc just to see the differences between analog and digital ISO when using this feature. Should be interesting.

Now the question is ... is it worth all the extra effort to reduce the noise w DF processing?

I tend to agree. It,s still the same dng but hot pixels, strange colors and banding will dissapear. Maybe the effect is bigger with frsp and shooting nighttime timelapses on higher isos. I welcome any deeper insights on the the darkframe theme and more examples too.

Those gif don,t really show what,s happening. The gif itself seems full of artifacts. Better if you show cropped examples of before, after @deafeyejedi

Looks like you were right ... I took them down and replaced them with somewhat better examples (non-Cinelog-C, etc and they are cropped per your suggestion) and let me know if there's anything else that I can do to help.

Updated first post with latest MLP

- For some time there has been support for exporting to openexr and dpx files if imagemagick is installed. More info on this on p27 in the user_guide

- Also included in this version is a new repack txt file called MLV_RAW_dng_repack_or_compress_DNG.txt Which mainly will repack dng files from 14-16bit files but, there will be an alternative here. I,ve been having some conversations with cpc, author of slimraw (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=15027.msg165213#msg165213) about adding some commandline options to his program. Now there is so as a non dependent alternative MLP will call for the -premiere option if the program is installed in the application folder. Dng files will be turned to lossless cdng files after they have been extracted to folders. This is something I personally find useful but of course it,s optional for the user.

New version out in first post.

A simplistic menu will appear when including legacy RAW files in your parent folder. Choose either to create MLV files from legacy RAW files or to simply process RAW to dng the regular way. It will batch process all RAW files in the directory. Nothing will be deleted or moved if converting to MLV. After conversion you can manually delete or choose to keep the RAW files.
Converting RAW to MLV is all possible thanks to bouncyball. Big thanks for this effort. Check his thread.
Also note that processing RAW to dng files now works without the need of concatenating spanned files. Bouncyball fixed this as well.

Been busy scripting a CR2 still image HDR workflow. Since magic lantern has a really good hdr bracket function and MLP already works with enfuse I might as well put in something that works with that. Put in the CR2_HDR_enfuse.txt file in A_lut_hold to activate the menu below. Parent folder must contain CR2 files. Some more info in p4 in the user_guide. Processing is multithreaded.

New version in first post

This one goes out to bouncyball. The guy that reworked raw2dng so that we can convert RAW to MLV. On a sidenote he also solved the spanned file problem in raw2dng.
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=17185.0
After some discussion I pointed out a few things I always wanted to fix in MLP regarding mlv_dump and to make this happen there is no better branch than the work from dmilligan here https://bitbucket.org/dmilligan/magic-lantern/branch/ml_dng
There is actually quite a few things that dmilligan shares that I personally thinks deserves a lot more attention.

Ok, so what happened is that bouncyball reworked a lot of things in the ml_dng branch that was either missing or was somehow problematic and put the code up here.
https://bitbucket.org/bouncyball/ml_dng-branch/src/cca020d2d94ec0bb1bd082f6189227ec36a1c229/?at=ml_dng

Following is now implemented and tested working in mlv_dump coming from bouncyball ml_dng branch/fork?
-   White balance handling(same as mlvfs – ufraw matrix math) All modes working except auto white balance in camera)
-   Default scale tag(automated)
-   Timecodes(as fixed in mlvfs. Chmee code originally?)
-   Removed forward matrices(my wish, not cdng standard)
-   Added focal resolution tags

Maybe I missed something here. I fill up with information as developing evolves.
The reworked mlv_dump together with a speedup in dng developing(converting 4 chunks in parallell, works since you can select frame range in mlv_dump, thanks g3gg0 – Thanks so-rose for pointing out.) will make developing dng files a lot faster. No need depending on exiftool and exiv2(actually very fast). All metadata handling is baked from within the mlv_dump binary.

Big thanks bouncyball listening, continuing developing, refining dmilligan´s stellar work in ml_dng branch. As always g3gg0, A1ex for mlv_dump, Chmee for a lot of early work around matrices, timecodes etc, and of course dmilligan for groundbreaking work in mlv_dump. Please tell if I missed thanking somebody here.

Daaaaaaammmmmnn @Danne's at it again. This time it's no turbo nor a supercharger. It's a freakin' 74-Z Military Speeder. So quick 'n dangerous like laser speeds! Sings beautifully on the Mac's while running MLP as usual. It's just even more pure Magic!

Funny how when one experiment actually solves one another and remarkably solves a lot of things overall together. That's the beauty of collaborations from certain people on this Forum. I am not even part of that crew.

This is beyond legacy stuff and much credit goes to you for your never ending work on this beautiful script in MLP which seems to get the most Updates (frequently) out of most if not all apps out there. For good reasons. He obviously cares for those that uses his fine work along with other amazing apps/converters as well out there on this forum. Thanks again Danne for yet another Christmas gift for all of us.

Remember none of this would have been possible without the amazing discoveries that @bouncyball recently made for us and has contributed so much in so little time. Keep on rolling, Buddy!

Special Thanks also goes out to @dmilligan, @g3gg0, @a1ex, @dfort, @Chmee, @so-rose & those that have contributed to keep this community well alive and always reviving.

Off I go into the speed comparisons experiment between the older and newer versions of MLP and will report the results as soon as I can. Fasten seat belts and best be sure to hold on to these speedy 74-Z's!

Some findings about the format EXR started out as a side topic so I grabbed the information and put it up here instead.

Seems photoshop is pushing exr files to gamma 2.2 when it should be linear 1.0. DaVinci Resolve is respecting linear output for exr format.
A "fix" is to set midpoint to 0.45 to get back to linear in PS.

http://forums.cgarchitect.com/80010-saving-exr-gamma-settings.html
Quote
If you were comping your EXR's you'd want them to remain linear, and as such they shall appear too dark. But you want to do the maths on them like this. To see what you are getting as a result, you would put a gamma of 2.2 on top of the comp. In PS I would do this with a levels adjustment layer at the top of the stack. The mid point is set to zero by default, but you can type in 2.2 (or 0.45 if required) to adjust the gamma output.

If you're not concerned with linear compositing, it's still useful to know.

@Danne - Instead of setting gamma to .45 try the inverse of the sRGB transfer function (as a lut). I'll bet it matches precisely.

Not sure how to create inverse luts but I added the sRGB to linear lut from VFX IO(Davinci Resolve) lut to the clip in AE and I assume it,s the same thing? Looks right to me :)

@Danne - The Resolve 'sRGB to Linear' lut is fine for this but I personally wouldn't set the workspace to Camera RGB ICC because it's non-standard. Try it with the sRGB or Rec709 ICC profile and a grayscale chart image if possible. You can't know for sure what is happening without some kind of reference.

I restarted AE so I believe it choose the sRGB colorspace(EXR colorspace) as default. Here it is again with color settings actively set to sRGB.
I checked how to get into linear gamma in photoshop too and they have some "actual RGB" setting which overrides the sRGB setting in the exr file but that seems plain wrong to do? Applying the sRGB to linear lut for gamma applied to the EXR sRGB colorspaced image must be the better approach. What do you say?

AE color settings set to sRGB

Post by: Andy600 on June 04, 2016, 01:49:45 PM
An EXR workflow should use a linear float workspace so AE's workspaces ICC should be linear too. Looking at your AE settings you need to click 'Linearize working space' before doing anything else or you can end up with double gamma issues which may be why the image looks like it does i.e. it looks almost log to me - there may be an additional gamma compound issue to deal with.

Assuming the image was produced in MLP, have you tried creating an EXR in Resolve using the original raw i.e. without MLP? How different is it to MLP?
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: Danne on June 04, 2016, 03:14:19 PM
Exr from DaVinci Resolve produces the same results when previewed on mac or imported into PS or AE(overbrights) Will upload comparison files later.
Double linear gamma happens in DaVinci when selecting -colorspace RGB in MLP(imagemagick). Or would this actually be the linear file we,re looking for?
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: Andy600 on June 04, 2016, 03:53:41 PM
I would trust Resolve's interpretation above ImageMagik because, as you say, it produces the same results in AE and PS but also in Nuke and Baselight. If AE color management is set up correctly it will produce EXR's the same as Resolve. You should aim at getting ImageMagik to match Resolve EXR but that may involve tweaking the source code - I don't know ImageMagik well enough and have only used it a couple of times for calibration/testing.

Post by: Danne on June 04, 2016, 04:07:55 PM
Sorry if I was unclear. Both Imagemagick and Resolve output delivers overbright gamma in preview and photoshop.
The really hard part here is to understand where in the pipe things goes wrong. I don,t even know what is supposed to be the correct starting point here  :P


Please have alook at these two examples from Davinci resolve and image_magick.

New upload in first post.

There is still things to develop around HDR
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=17334.msg168376#msg168376

By duplicating an image sequence one can obtain the original framerate instead of having HDR halfen fps due to fusing images. Instead of going A+B, A+B, A+B you can do consecutive blending by fusing A+B, B+A, A+B and so on.

To activate correct framerate in HDR processing add HDR_enfuse_correct_FPS.txt into the A_lut_hold folder. This works automated both with dng and H.264 movie processing.
Now this workflow is already working with ffmpeg tblend average filter however with enfuse you also have the possibilty to work with aligning via Hugin.

Also added in MLP is a small menu helper when right clicking folders with dng files which activates FFplay previewer.
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: DeafEyeJedi on June 16, 2016, 12:34:52 AM
Thanks for the update, D!

Here are my findings when using H264 HDR footage...


Is this normal for the a_lut_hold to be a File rather than a Folder? Because when I go into the dcraw_FFmpeg_settings Folder to pick out a few HDR features which then won't go into the a_lut_hold because it's not a Folder? Should I delete that 'file' and create a new Folder with the same name?
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: Danne on June 16, 2016, 06:24:24 AM
You should select 'q' exit and quit from the menu if you are working from the same folder as your files.
Recommend you to test some short 30 fps since the quality is better and aligning takes a while.
I have a new version coming up soon which fixes an interpolation issue creating flickery parts from enfuse.
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: Danne on June 16, 2016, 07:31:27 AM
New version uploaded which fixed align/enfuse issue by auto crop with hugin.
When running MLV/RAW files include following files in A_lut_hold folder
example:
HDR_enfuse_correct_FPS.txt
HDR_enfuse_straight_from_dng_settings.txt
HDR_MOV_disable_sharpening.txt


When running H.264 mov material include:
example:
HDR_enfuse_correct_FPS.txt
HDR_enfuse_settings.txt
HDR_MOV_disable_sharpening.txt


Try 24,25 or 30fps to see how it works. If you want fast enfusing add HDR_disable_aligning.txt only the ghosting will be severe. Remove the HDR_MOV_disable_sharpening.txt
if you want a slight sharpening added to your files.

Ok, so I tried the enfuse-workflow with the newest version. And it works really well. On my 6D I would prefer working with HDR h264 over RAW any day. The only drawback is the rendering time, on my 2012 macbook pro, rendering 30sek HDR took like 25min.

here is an example:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/pbcpwh9woc0hdfj/HDR_MVI_8093.mov?dl=0

I was thinking if its possible to have some kind of proxy workflow.
Is the tblend average option faster?

Post by: Danne on June 21, 2016, 10:38:46 PM
I,ll check soon. Oh yes, the tblend filter is in realtime. Caveat you don,t have the aligning function so 50 or 60fps is recommended. I consider the tblend filter workflow the most useful actually.

Updated MLP so it works with the latest FFmpeg. Planning on maybe implementing the new atadenoiser filter which seems good.
Had to change some commands used in ffmpeg in older versions so when updating see to it that the latest ffmpeg is present in the Place_binaries_here folder before migrating binaries from the older version.
Latest FFmpeg can be found here
http://www.osxexperts.net/ffmpeg302osx108.dmg

Clarification
Old user(already MLP installed)
1 - Place the updated FFMpeg in Place_binaries_here folder(download package)
2 - Double click the move_binaries.command and follow instructions(say yes to both questions)

New user
1 - Follow the HOWTO.txt in the download package

Hi aschille84.

Settings defaults are

dcraw $icc +M $br $dpf_a $any $ga -c -6 -W -q 3 $r $wb

Where the important picture settings are
dcraw +M -H 2 -g  -6 -W -q 3

+M/-M     Use/don't use an embedded color matrix
-H [0-9]  Highlight mode (0=clip, 1=unclip, 2=blend, 3+=rebuild)
Set to -H 2(slight higlight recovery. Works very well)
-g <p ts> Set custom gamma curve (default = 2.222 4.5) Gamma set to -g 2.4 0
-6        Write 16-bit instead of 8-bit This setting is not linear altough -H 2 moves towards linear output. For linear output use following
-4        Linear 16-bit, same as "-6 -W -g 1 1" Not used in MLP
-W        Don't automatically brighten the image
-q [0-3]  Set the interpolation quality


You can change these basic settings by removing the gamma and any_settings file in A_lut_hold folder.

Ill try to get some results with this. Im interested in using this with color space transfrom latest resolve update.
So can I change the settings in MLV_RAW_dng_dcraw_any_command.txt to +M -H 2 -g  -4 -W -q 3 or do I have to change this in another file?

Post by: Danne on June 27, 2016, 02:37:39 PM
Well, some dcraw code settings might not apply since they are not put into variables.

Easiest would be to change in the source_code_MLP folder in following files(look at the bottom of each file). Put in the same code in all four files(multithreading)
fold_prores_01.txt
fold_prores_02.txt
fold_prores.txt
process_01.txt

After changing stuff in there double click A_move_content_to_workflow.command in the source_code_MLP folder and then install MLP after doing your changes. Don,t forget to migrate binaries with move_binaries.command before installing.


Alternative you do these changes straight inside an already installed MLP versionand test your results.
Go here ~/Library/Services/MLP.workflow/Contents/ and search for these files
fold_prores_01.command
fold_prores_02.command
fold_prores.command
process_01.command


Let me know how it works or I help you out later. Prepare for dark files and even darker with -H 2 selected :).

Ok, so I did a test.. Ended up making a custom LUT to match the DNGs in a ARRI Log-C timeline in DR12.5. Ungraded prores 444 to the left, slightly graded to the right.
The last clip is a HDR clip with the enfuse_correct_fps.txt setting. I couldnt get the scaling to work with the HDR workflow, not a big deal though.. Its low res 6D, but the colors are still great.

New version uploaded.

Created a menu selector in which one can add different settings in ffmpeg. It works with previewing and HDR as well. Report any bugs since I had to change a lot of scripts.
TO activate the menu add the FFmpeg_settings.txt file to A_lut_hold folder prior to running MLV/RAW, MOV, or folders with dng files. Add settings and when ready select run MLP.
You can also exit the menu before running MLP and do previewing and then run MLP again when ready.

Cool stuff. HDR is great working with.
How are you using the scale MLV_RAW_MOV_dng_scale.txt file? I just tested changing to 2500k in by replacing scale=1920:-1, with scale=2500:-1, and it worked over here.
Thanks! I agree.
I plotted in the same resolution as the DNGs 1600x680 and it worked great with non-HDR footage. (Otherwise movs streched vertically).

But with the enfuse process the same scaling didnt work. (Thou the original resolution was different, and I kept the 1600x680 scaling ). Need to check again.

Edit: due to different res, not hdr-process

Strange.
Could you show me exact what you put in the A_lut_hold folder and I will try to reproduce.
Maybe even put up a test file(short one)?
Also, you should keep the 1 and only put in the width number scale=1600:-1

Excited to try out, the denoise function! Will test it soon.

It checked the scaling again. When using scale=1600:-1, it scales the picture to 1600x1133 i. e 16:9. With different resolutions it does keep the fixed width, but scales any aspect ratio to 16:9.

If i plot the same resolution as the clip scale=1600:680, its okey for that clip. But not several clips with different resolutions. Workaround is to only process clips with same resolution, I guess.The clips used were: 1600x680 and 1280x582:

Thanks a lot for sharing your findings. I think I come to a solution.
Seems going from tiff images to .mov files keeps a pixel dimension tag in the exported file. Even though the image size shows 1600x680 the aspect ratio will still be 1600x1133. This tag cannot be erased with exiftool but ffmpeg has a setting that will let you alter aspect ratio. If you want 16:9 relation you write the following in the scale text document.
scale=1600:680,setdar=16:9,

Let me know if this works.
More info here
https://ffmpeg.org/pipermail/ffmpeg-user/2012-April/006201.html
I,ll update this post with more findings later.

scale=1600:680,setsar=1:1,
is even better. Might automate this one into the script.



*update
Seems to be a problem with this version of mlv_dump changing the default scale tag on regular fps files. This creates wrong aspect ratio on your files. Will check.
You filmed these clips in regular 1080p mode and not 720pmode?

Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: Danne on June 29, 2016, 10:39:52 PM
Spent a few hours trying to understand some of the code around how to detect whether or not to add the default scale tag. Checking in ml_dng branch(dmilligan) he calculate the active area (width and height) from the raw buffer(dng)_info) and if height can be doubled before it meets max width it can be determined for squeezed footage.
Another assumption is <=720 and if that doesn,t match it continues to ask if rawW could be < 2000(width).
However. Since your footage orignally was filmed in 1600x680 mlv_dump wrongfully assumes it,s squeezed footage.
The solution right now is for you to either film an aspect ratio that won,t be taken for squeezed footage or run footage through mlvfs. Or export it back to correct aspects with ffmpeg.
To fix this we must have mlv_dump determine the active area from the raw source rather from the raw buffer like in mlvfs. I see what I can do here but I will need some help  :P.

Post by: Danne on June 30, 2016, 12:46:47 AM
Uploaded a new version.
I might have fixed the rare default scale tag problem. It has to be tested with some different cameras since I only have a 5D mark III right now.
Instead of checking for 2.0 I put in to check for 2.5 which could be the better number here.
if(aspect_ratio > 2.0 && rawH <= 720)
is changed to
if(aspect_ratio > 2.5)

How to verify
Testing with maybe three different aspect ratio settings going from low medium to highest and camera set to mv720 mode(slowmo) and develop to dng files. Open in acr or run in MLP. Footage should come out unsqueezed.
Or simply scroll through aspect ratio menu and calculate the settings addition Height*2.5. The numbers should be more than width setting if filming mv1080 and below if filming mv720 mode.

Looking forward to some lovely summer vids aschille84 :)

Nice find @aschille84 and MUCH Thanks for the quick fix @Danne (even without help) and I'll definitely do the suggested test verification with slo-mo files in mv720 mode for unsqueezed footage. This will be a huge time saver as it usually take forever to do so in DR12.5 (I don't know of a short cut to fix AR for each MLV within timeline as copy and paste doesn't do the trick) and also this can be a bit quicker in AE anyway.
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: Danne on June 30, 2016, 08:06:13 AM
There is some setting for aspect ratio in resolve. At least there was before. When that was set one can work freely with squeezed dng files.
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: DeafEyeJedi on June 30, 2016, 08:20:26 AM
But what about working with a bunch of different footage (mv720 mixed with mv1080) together or something in that regard?

Hey,
Im curious if it would be possible to wirte a script to upscale the dng's to say 4k if possible?
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: Danne on July 08, 2016, 01:07:22 AM
It,s possible to do this already inside this file. MLV_RAW_MOV_dng_scale.txt.
Simply replace scale=1920:-1, to scale=4000:-1, and put the MLV_RAW_MOV_dng_scale.txt file into A_lut_hold folder prior to running MLP. Inside the file you can also choose between different scaling techniques. This will output a mov file to 4k. Upressing the actual dng files isn,t possible.

Ive been using ml raw for about a year now and i love the dynamic range that it gives me. I do alot of run and gun style shooting and picked up a sony a6300. I love the slog2 color and i want to match up color as best i can. MLP is the fastest workflow and most powerful that i have used to process my raw file.
Long story short ...
MLRAWviewer can convert to slog2. How can i use MLP or can that file be create in MLP with the other log files to convert my raw files to slog2 mov's?

Here is an example of a video i did with mixed footage from a6300 and 5dIII raw

Hey,
I came across this link where the guy upressed 1080 dng to 4k thats why i ask about up ressing.
I figured his process of using after effects to upressed you guys could do using chdr or repacking or some other step.
The file that you pointed to does the job but does it degraded the quality?does it create the MOV in 1080 then upres the MOV to 4k?dioes the  quality get degraded? Maybe only if you pixelpeep?

It really depends on upscaling algorithms how degraded the picture is gonna be. Of course a higher quality source file will yield better results. One have to test and see what works or not.

Hi guys!

I feel extremely stupid for this... but here it goes:

In the HOWTO it says "2 - Extract the enblend-enfuse-4.0-mac.tar Move enfuse to Place_binaries_here folder 13,6 MB in size' But I don't seem to find a file named "enfuse" inside the extracted folder.

Well, I also need to mention that the file downloaded is enblend-enfuse-4.2.tar not 4.0

IDK if it makes any difference.

Any leads here? Is there a folder I need to move or what?

Thanks!

Testing, testing :). You could always put up questions and work in progress here. Personally I found HDR tblend workflow useful and fast and it don,t even uses enfuse. Page 7 in the user_guide. This works best with 50 or 60 fps and when in 720p mode 5D mark III holds up the picture better than other cameras.
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: DeafEyeJedi on July 15, 2016, 10:12:30 PM
Is the HDR tblend workflow best use for H.264 or RAW?
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: Danne on July 15, 2016, 10:36:15 PM
As long as you maximize frames from 48 fps and upwards I,d say go for tblend filter. In other cases enfuse workflow with align function on(default) both h264 and raw/mlv.

I must say when first downloaded MLP and realized there was no .dmg file located in it, I was instantly turned off and terrified; however, @DeafEyeJedi talked me into all the magical wonders this application bring to ML. He stayed up with me last night and walked me through the whole installation process for MLP via text message. @Danne, this man is working overtime to promote your product and get people to use it, I don't know him personally but I really appreciated that. MLP is "GOD DAMN AWESOME" I'm super new to it but I see myself marrying it, trust me, if you are new to this program, it is worth every bit of the installation process, do not be afraid of it, it is magical. I LOVE IT! Thank you very much @Danne and the whole team for giving me this, I have a 550D and now the footage look so much better. THANK YOU. I will be posting to my video soon.

I think i maybe missing something im trying my hand at hdr. When i try to process giving this setup i dont get a final mov file. I get a prompt to delete or keep tif files. i hit delete. I see the process going create the tiffs. Then there is no move file after the process is finished. Am i mission something in my a_lut_hold or enfuse? I do believe enfuse is installed.
any help will do. thanks.

Do you know if the enfuse issue reported by @Bobbyshots2 was only affecting with his Mac or do I need to update MLP (which I don't think) as I've been sorting out best workflows when it comes to quantity vs quality especially with quick turn arounds.

I could definitely use some good luck charms from you, @Danne!

If my partner instincts to stick with 30p @ 1080p to better match with his drone shots -- then I'll have to use enfuse rather than tblend mode but it's just seems like a looooooong time for it to spit out HDR converted files. [emoji5]

The problem was with permission of that specific binary. Keeping framerate HDR workflow should be tested more. There are some interpolation steps due to enfuse causing flickery edges otherwise. This itself could maybe be problematic with lots of movement for instance.

Some 30p HDR (ISO 100/1600) testing in H.264. Rendered with tblend average. Applied with varieties of cubes in A_lut_hold folder.


Also in regards to MLV RAW HDR ... I may have also encountered that same so called enfuse bug reported by @bobbyshots2 from earlier.

Here are the screenshots of the empty .mov file...

What are your aim here. The files in A_lut_hold is for raw/mlv workflow?
Tblend will never be good with footage below 48 fps right now. I suggest you try with HDR_enfuse_settings.txt file and the keep_correct_fps.txt file. And skip the luts as well. When footage is aligned you probably won,t see any ghosting.
Also check if you have enfuse installed.

Done. Check your PM. Includes both H.264 files (not sure if you still want the RAW files?) but let me know either way. However, I didn't think these were good HDR files (or at least I thought so) especially with the first take (MVI_7210) due to the shutter effects from panning too fast across the room and felt that it looked slightly better in the 2nd take (MVI_7211) in which you can tell the differences between these two. This was all shot in 30p so the shutter was set at 1/60 respectively.

What are your aim here. The files in A_lut_hold is for raw/mlv workflow?
Tblend will never be good with footage below 48 fps right now. I suggest you try with HDR_enfuse_settings.txt file and the keep_correct_fps.txt file. And skip the luts as well. When footage is aligned you probably won,t see any ghosting.
Also check if you have enfuse installed.

I was only referring this workflow aiming at the RAW files as I wasn't aware that it only needed the HDR_enfuse_settings.txt (and not the enfuse_straight_from_DNG_settings.txt) but I guess I also needed to give enfuse permissions via Terminal. Perhaps I'll try this again and report back my findings. Thanks again D!

How do you process the cr2 files? It should be done by right clicking a folder containing CR2 files. Are you running (r) from the menu command? That will probably not work.
Did you check page 5 in the user_guide?

It took a long while of reading and re-reading, but i finally figured this thing out. I'm still in the learning process, but so far I am very impressed and happy with the development of MLP. My only comment would be a more thorough guide or walkthrough. As a start-from-scratch user, I found a lot of the language and terms used were difficult to follow/understand especially with no reference to what things actually were. Nevertheless, as i said, if you really want to learn how to use MLP then you have to be ready to read through all the documentation, as well as this thread, very carefully.

I'll be posting some dual-iso MOV and dual-iso MLV real estate videos in the future.

Thanks for all the hard work and dedication to the development of this app Danne.

New upload in first post

Minor menu update. Added some options which will pop out when including CR2 dual iso files. Options are straight from a1ex cr2hdr. I left out white balance options since MLP script already provides correct white balance with help from dcraw and some division math. There are other options left out but anything could be added.
Usage:
Select a setting. Reselect setting to erase. When ready hit (r). If running defaults just hit (r) without selecting anything else. All settings applied are placed in a settings file in A_lut_hold.

Thanks Danne for the update. Definitely useful features for CR2 Dual-ISO. Will test them and report back.

Meanwhile, I feel that it is also important to note how useful (extremely useful) it is to use DarkFraming Average Process within MLP and yet it's so easy!

Here are some samples for those who are still curious or unsure whether to take a quick dive into the Dark Side even tho I am a Rebel.

New version

a1ex added some really nice progress around crop_rec.mo module and I will try to follow the progress in MLP.
Thread here
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=17021.msg171148#msg171148

I added the changes recently added from here and slightly modified some default switches in this version of mlv_dump.
Code in sources_binaries upon download. The modifications are work in progress.
Original commits
https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/branch/bad_pixels

So if you download the crop_rec.mo and put in the ML folder(onto your memory card) according to instructions you can develop the MLV files the usual way in MLP.
What you have to do to get rid of the colorsplotches is to add this file in the A_lut_hold folder
MLV_mlv_dump_settings.txt

Inside the MLV_mlv_dump_settings.txt file specify this at the top row to disable vertical stripes cotrection and add fix cold pixels.
--no-stripes --fixcp

Post your findings in the crop_rec.mo thread. Hopefully this will help get this module a little closer to the nightlies :P

I'd really love to give MLP a chance considering the good things I'm reading about it but when I click the source download link on pg. 1 it says the file was not found.  Where can I download MLP?  Other methods I've tried have given me unusable ghosting and it seems like it's minimized with this process.

 I have a shot looking out a train window and panning to someone sitting that was shot in mlv with dual iso and I'm afraid no matter what method I try I'll get too much ghosting because of the fast motion in the shot (shot at 24 fps).  Anyone have suggestions as to which way to go about processing?

Cheers!

Regarding you ghosting problem. Dual iso isn,t giving ghosting but HDR will. Have you mixed up your workflows?

Yes, I did end up confusing the two.  As far as this shot goes I think I'm shit out of luck with the HDR video ghosting since I shot it in 24fps.  If I shot HDR mlv video in 48fps and then used the HDR_tblend_average_half_FPS.txt would it give me no ghosting (max record time with those settings must be next to nothing)?  What's the advantage of using HDR video over dual iso?  Seams like they do the same thing but HDR video is more for landscape/slo-moving shots because of ghosting issues? 

I just did a little dual iso test in my home for practice purposes.  I used cinestyle, at 24fps, iso 100/1600 w/ -0.3 ev, then loaded the dual iso gamma 3.6, dang straight to prioress, and dcraw in MLP and ran.  My pores clips look great but are strangely playing back at double fps? not sure whats going on.  I shot this handheld and sure, it's the morning and I haven't had my whiskey yet, but the shake is ridiculous.  Very difficult for a first time user to dive in head first with this sort of DIY program but I'm slowly realizing how much of a benefit MLP is.   Any help would be much appreciated!

That looks like an earthquake  :o. Never seen it before :).
Welcome aboard the HDR train. Quite some workflows here to learn. Firstly. Dual iso and HDR don,t work together. Are you working HDR? MLV/RAW or H.264? 48 fps or more? 24 or 25 fps? If you give me this information I can give you some handy advice.
By the way. Really liked your Wicked game video.

haha you two bring a smile to my face.  Thanks Danne! Currently working on another one for the same artist and you can expect to see it here when I'm done  ;)

I laid out what I did in my first post.. " I used cinestyle, at 24fps mlv raw video, duel iso mod at iso 100/1600 w/ -0.3 ev, shot these two clips, popped cf card in reader, loaded the dual iso gamma 3.6, dang straight to prioress, and dcraw in MLP and ran."  Did I need to add any other commands to the A_Lut_hold folder for duel iso conversion? The user guide seemed to think I only needed the 3 I stated above and MLP would automatically recognize if the .mlv clips were duel iso or not and adjust accordingly

Post by: Danne on August 30, 2016, 11:11:32 PM
If you shoot dual iso gamma 3.6 can be a good idea. If HDR not so good.

If you shoot HDR 48fps than to put this in the A_lut hold can be a good idea. Don,t set camera to dual iso while shooting HDR.
Try this in A_lut_hold folder
HDR_tblend_average_half_FPS.txt
HDR_tblend_average.txt

You can throw out the HDR_tblend_average_half_FPS.txt is you want to keep 48fps instead of 24fps.

An alternative if you downloaded hugin alignment binary you can align footage. THis will take a really long time but then use these files in A_lut_hold. Footage will end up in 24fps.
HDR_enfuse_settings.txt
HDR_enfuse_straight_from_dng_settings.txt


If you shoot 5d mark III I can really recommend 50 or 60fps h.264. Use the same files as in first suggestion.
HDR_tblend_average_half_FPS.txt
HDR_tblend_average.txt



There,s a lot of stuff going on in this sentence.

wouldn't keeping footage at the original framerate (shooting at 48 and finishing in 48 or shooting in 24 and ending in 24) only introduce ghosting with HDR video? Isn't that the appeal of dual iso so that you don't have to double your frame rate (shoot 48fps) if you want to end in 24fps?

What do you mean by alignment?  Does that eliminate ghosting?  You can tell that Im really just after shooting higher dynamic range video without ghosting.  That's why I shot the dual iso test video above.  I asked before but What's the advantage of using HDR video over dual iso?  Is it really just ghosting with HDR video vs. moire and aliasing with dual iso?  Pick your poison kind of thing?  My apologies if this was already made clear

 Still any ideas as to why I might be getting this weird earthquake effect on my PRORES clips after MLP processes the .mlv clips?

Sorry, thought you were still mixing HDR with dual iso. Realize you are shooting dual iso now. Hm, not sure why you,re footage comes out like that. Was all files successfully processed? Check your sequence and see so cr2hdr didn,t skip any dng;s.
If the file isn,t to big you could maybe upload it for testing?
By the way. Cinestyle or any picture style won,t bite on raw mlv files. Pic styles works only with H.264 material.

Realized I had it on cinestyle for no reason right after I uploaded the footage haha  ???
 No DNGs were skipped in the sequence and when I scroll through the frames one by one there isn't any of this earthquake effect we're getting in the final prores clips so it's gotta be when it's converted from the DNG sequence to prores.

Hi @calebdescognets.
I just ran one of your files and the exported fine without any of the earthquake effect. Did you reproduce the issue? Did you interrupt processing in any way, like running MLP while it was already running for instance?

These were my files in A_lut_hold folder

I just re-processed the files and I'm getting the same shake in the final proves clips.  Maybe it's my version of MLP?  I'm unsure what may be causing this anomaly  ::)

I could always just import the processed DNG sequence in AE and export as cineform/prores there but it'd be nice not to have to switch back and forth

Let,s try to get to the bottom of this. Try these suggestions.

If you have your folder with dng files or MLV file in your folder do following.

1 - double click looks_creator.command located in your folder. From the menu select (r) and enter. Terminal will tell you what is happening when processing. Copy paste this content into a txt file and upload the file and sent it to me. You can even reprocess starting with your MLV file if you want.

2 - Send me over your first three DNG files from your sequence.

3 - If I can,t find what,s wrong you can zip your version of MLP and upload it for me to check. Write in terminal
open ~/Library/Services/ hit enter. You,ll find MLP in there, zip and send.

Could someone here with a Mac upload a sequence of Cinema/DNG's with Darkframe Averaging. Mininum 5 Sec.

Preferably with high ISO and lots of noise or if with low ISO, then  a dark scene where I can push the Exposure to get noise. Also low darks, ETTR.

I would like to do some NR tests on the footage.

Thanks to @calebdescognets for lending me a dng frame from his video here.
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=17927.msg172410#msg172410

Here is a little something useful when working with dng sequences in acr. One issue when opening up dng files is the lack of retrieving highlight information. Dng files are simply clipped in display referred working space as a starting point. Main reason I work with raw files is to get into scene referred working space having all dynamic range represented unclipped as a starting point. Ok, so working with still images using the highlight slider is possible to use for retrieving highlight information back but with movie dng sequences this will give you flicker being non linear treating every image indivdually.
Solution is to create a linear dcp profile in adobe dng profile editor. Free for download here.
https://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp?product=195&platform=Macintosh

Once your in the editor it is very easy to create this profile. Open up a dng file in the editor and select linear under tone curve. Then export this linear profile as a dcp and you will be able to select the dcp from within acr when importing your dng files. It,s under "camera profiles"
Here is a linear dcp profile for 5D mark III

I am digging this yet another new hidden trick big time, @Danne and gonna take a dip with this one!

Thanks for sharing and will report my results when I can. If I remember correctly that MLP does by default go with -H 2 -b 2 if we were to add the linear_to_cineon/cineon_to_rec709 combo within Dcraw?

Post by: Danne on September 23, 2016, 09:55:23 AM
Well I think you can do like this. Erase any gamma files and simply add -H 2 -b 2 into the dcraw_any_command.txt file.

Updated to Mac OS Sierra and everything seems to work as before when it comes to MLP. Of course there is still the gatekeeper problem when double clicking a novel command file so that part still have to be handled(ctrl + right click or make a gatekeeper exception in privacy/security settings). I tried getting around this by creating an installer through an apple script put into an automator app but to no avail. However I decided to keep the installer and replaced the original installer script. The HOWTO tell you what to do.
I managed to create a dmg package of the bundle as well but since most stuff isn,t bundled in MLP the benefit of creating the dmg is none. Creating a writable dmg isn,t working good either since it will acting as a big balloon file into which one can fill it up with stuff until the limit size says stop. I used dmilligans very nice script for this coming from here(below link). Just change size and content (source) and you can create your own little dmg package :).

Hey Danne,
Ive been away for a while just checking ad seeing this last post about acr... Looks awesome great work.
Im going to do some testing with those settings in dcraw.
If you need any help wth testing let me know.

Updated to Mac OS Sierra and everything seems to work as before when it comes to MLP.

Got the gatekeeper issue fixed (Thanks @reddeercity & @dfort) and just downloaded MLP from OP with the new installer (really nice!) and now when I tried to run MLP after selecting 'q' to spit the usual Folders for me to work with but it doesn't do anything. Spinning wheel comes on for a second then goes out. Tried reinstalling and restarted my Mac to no avail. I had just used this last night (before I decided to give the download link a try this monring) so I guess I shouldn't have done that?  :)

My wrong @Danne -- ran into another hiccup with OS X 10.12 Sierra when connecting NTFS drivers (external drive was from client who wanted me to batch process H.264 files to ProResHQ) so now it all seems normal after I learned that I had to reinstall NTFS for Mac OS X since I guess it wasn't corresponding and sorry for yet another false alarm!

Pressing Q? Are you starting from an empty folder? What are your trying to do?
You could try running MLP via looks_creator.command and check if you get anything of interest in there.
*solved. Deafeye updated former question.

After the whole installing process (by the way do I have to keep the MLP folder? can I move it on the applications folder?) I get this error:

- Impossibile aprire il documento “MLP.workflow” perché è danneggiato o incompleto.

That means that MLP.workflow is damaged or incomplet. I'm on a mbpr 15" mid 2012, 10.11.6

I'm trying to installt to have another option for conversion. By the way can this automatically detect and correct hot pixels in dng export?

Post by: Danne on October 30, 2016, 07:24:35 PM
Hi. thanks for notifying. Seems I uploaded an incomplete version to dropbox. Should be fine now.
Regarding hot pixels they an only be manually mapped out by specifying the coordinates of the pixel in this file. It,s called dead_pixel_list.txt
and you put it inside A_lut_hold folder before starting MLP. Note that it will only apply to the ProRes file upon export and not to the actual dng file.
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: togg on October 30, 2016, 07:47:23 PM
Thanks for the reply! I'm trying again.

edit: tried, no luck. Still same error. And maybe now I've screwed something up because after another try with the installer I can't even see the menu option anymore. Maybe I should uninstall everything first? How is it done?



I'm mainly installing this because I've just noticed some ugly vertical stripes in some highlight that I need to push on some footage. Also in a few shadows but less disturbing. Does MLP correct it on dng export? I've tried both MLRW and RAWMagic, they have some stripe correction option but it doesn't work. I was also wondering if the exported dng can be compressed, that'w a terrific feature in MLRW that saves ton of space.
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: Danne on October 30, 2016, 08:18:58 PM
Hi togg. Sent you a pm.
About compressing that can be done with MLP if you have slimraw installed to your system. It,s optional of course. It activates compression when MLV_RAW_dng_repack_or_compress_DNG.txt is included in A_lut_hold folder.
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: zachnfine on November 29, 2016, 10:08:16 PM
Apologies if this is covered somewhere in the previous 32 pages of this thread (I looked a bit but haven't read every post), but I've just installed MLP and tested it by using it on a folder containing a single MLV file. I didn't change any of the 3 txt files that appeared in the A_lut_hold folder. I noticed the following, when I compared the results to the output of MLVFS and to a simple invocation of mlv_dump:

• The generated prores4444 quicktime file seemed to be constructed of all the frames running in some random, jumbled, unwatchable order. I've got 8 cores, maybe they ran in parallel and concatenated frames to the file out of sequence? I'm just puzzled by this result.

• When I open the generated dng sequence in Davinci Resolve, its embedded white balance settings are very different than the white balance settings of a dng sequence created from the same MLV file simply using "./mlv_dump.osx --dng" from the command line --and those have slightly different white balance settings than the dng files generated from the same MLV using MLVFS. Any idea why all 3 of these methods would embed different white balance values in the resulting dng sequence? For what it's worth, in Davinci Resolve's camera raw settings for each clip I've got all 3 set to "Decode Using: Clip" "White Balance: As Shot" "Color Space: Blackmagic Design" "Gamma: Blackmagic Design Film" with "Highlight Recovery" checked. Here's an image of what I'm seeing for frame 1 of each sequence:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/3yagz5n2lur1ptg/2016-11-29%20at%2012.57%20PM.jpg

Apart from that white balance metadata, the content of the DNG frames appears to be the same - if I change the color settings of the MLP to match those of the MLVFS they look identical. I'm just curious why these 3 methods are all coming up with different metadata for white balance and why MLP's are so different from the other two.

Thanks for any help or information.

Post by: Danne on November 29, 2016, 11:01:53 PM
Hi.
Not sure what the reason could be here. If you can send me a dng over I could check your file for white balance. ProRes output should be in order though.  Randomness indicates something is not right maybe with ffmpeg. Not really sure.
By the way. If you could check with this program cr2hdr.app and see if results are better? It,s stand alone and it exports to prores the same way as in MLP only the bash code in here is built around menus to make it all easier to work with.

Thanks for the reply. I'll check with cr2hdr.

After a bit more googling, I came across this page: http://www.cinelogdcp.com/news-updates/2015/1/27/important-information-for-magic-lantern-users
It looks as though the white balance metadata requires the use of a separate matrix for each camera. They claim MLVFS is doing it right and provide a link to the commit that includes the matrices --maybe mlv_dump doesn't use them?
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: Danne on November 29, 2016, 11:33:54 PM
MLP and cr2hdr.app uses the color matrices needed. You also get the correct unique camera model tags instead of sometimes localized camera model names.
Most code comes from dmilligan ml_dng branch which is then partly modified by bouncyball.
About your white balance issue. You probably filmed with your cam set to AWB. If so then  MLP calculates auto white balance for you since that mode is the only one that can,t be found in mlv metadata.
What you see in mlvfs is the underlying kelvin temp which your cam is set to.
Regular mlv_dump exports hard coded wb values around 5500k.
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: zachnfine on November 30, 2016, 01:54:03 AM
That makes sense.

I ran cr2hdr - it generated a Prores Proxy and Prores 4444 quicktime with the same random-seeming frame order, just like MLP.

On a different note -- is there a way to get cr2hdr to keep its terminal window around so I could watch the output of the commands and thus get visual feedback during processing (might also help for diagnosing problems like the one I'm experiencing)?

Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: Danne on November 30, 2016, 06:29:17 AM
Here is a version of cr2hdr.app which will print text files next to your dng files. They will be called out_01, out_02 etc depending on which process will run. They will show what ffmpeg is doing.
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4tCJMlOYfirUmRfX2EwbFZQLTQ/view?usp=sharing

If you want to use MLP that might be even better. You can run MLP through the looks_creator.command script which is inside the folder with the rest of your files. Double click that command file and then choose (r)  run MLP(MLV/RAW) and terminal output will be shown while processing.

Could you upload a file that doesn,t work here? What camera are you using? Are you shooting normal footage 14-bit or 10/12-bit?
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: zachnfine on November 30, 2016, 09:18:04 PM
I'm running "Magic Lantern Nightly.2016Sep10.5D3113" firmware on a Canon 5D mk III, capturing to the MLV 2.0 format with audio at 1080p 23.976.  I think the resulting files are 14-bit raw.

I ran cr2hdr on several additional MLV files, and in each case the resulting quicktime file featured random frame order. On the plus side, the dng frames are in sequential order.

I'm in the process of running the version of cr2hdr.app that will print text files next to the dng. I don't see any text files yet and several dng sequences have appeared. I'll leave it running a while.

I'll see if I can find a smallish MLV file that exhibits the problem to post to dropbox.

Post by: zachnfine on December 01, 2016, 04:53:16 AM
Here's a folder on dropbox containing a small-ish MLV file, the quicktime file that cr2hdr made from it, and the output text file:

Just tried your file and it works fine over here. Could you zip and send me your folder with dng files of that same mlv file over? Maybe there is something in those files that is not working idk.
What OS are you on? What specs on your computer?
Did you try working from the looks_creator.command script in MLP? I couldn,t find anything in your ffmpeg output textfile unfortunately.
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: zachnfine on December 01, 2016, 05:24:58 PM
I've added the folder containing the dng sequence to the dropbox folder. It should show up in there in a couple of minutes.

I'm running OS X 10.11.6.

The MLV file and the directory to which dng and quicktime output are directed are both stored on a thunderbolt RAID that's a ZFS filesystem. I suppose that's maybe a little bit of weirdness I've injected into the process.

What's the command that sends the dng files through to ffmpeg? Maybe I can just have it echo the filenames in order rather than pipe it into a process, and see if it's getting them jumbled and track that down.
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)
Post by: Danne on December 01, 2016, 06:33:01 PM
Your files works fine over here. You can try some other ffmpeg binary to see if that helps.
http://www.osxexperts.net/ffmpeg/ffmpegexperts.html

All binaries are located inside cr2hdr.app/Contents/
You might wanna try another version of dcraw and exiftool as well. Hard to tell in this case what,s going on. Try on another filesystem if you think that,s the case.

or...

If you are working with cr2hdr.app you can change code inside the source folder. When you,re done you double click Build_dmg_package.command to build a new dmg file. You have to change code in four scripts since they work in parallell. You can start by changing stuff in the first script and run tests on one dng sequence.

!A faster way is to work from the command scripts inside the cr2hdr.app itself. The same file are inside cr2hdr.app/Contents only they,re suffixed as command files!

Anyway. Back to source folder...

FFmpeg_produce_01.txt
FFmpeg_produce_02.txt
FFmpeg_produce_03.txt
FFmpeg_produce_04.txt


(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=https%3A%2F%2Fs13.postimg.org%2Fv0gebsa1j%2FScreen_Shot_2016_12_01_at_18_17_20.png&hash=4ff788d86b1d9d87d3605ce9763afd8a)

I,d suggest scroll down to the bottom of FFmpeg_produce_01.txt file and maybe try do something with the find "$out""$out3""$name""$sl". -maxdepth 1 -iname '*.dng' -print0 | xargs -0 dcraw....


The find command at the bottom affects the ProRes4444 output activated from the ProRes4444 to mov menu.
Code: [Select]
#check if ProRes4444 settings file contains information
    if ! [ x"$(cat /tmp/FFmpeg_settings | grep -v 'HL\|AWB\|dcrawA')" = x ]
    then
    mkdir -p "$out""$out2"$(date +%F)_ProRes4444

I'll have a look when I get a chance -- am about to have a few days away from the computer. My bet is that for whatever reason the find command is coming back with frames out of sequence for zfs. Maybe I need to change it to something like:

find "$out""$out3""$name""$sl". -maxdepth 1 -iname '*.dng' -print0 | sort | xargs -0 dcraw ...

or maybe 'sort' wouldn't produce the right order but adding the '-s' flag to 'find' would do the right thing.
Title: Re: MLP - Mac OSX batch processing workflow (former cr2hdr-r)

If that,s the case some sort command should probably do. Last time I checked wildcard function should sort anyway. Hopefully you,ll narrow it down.

Post by: zachnfine on December 06, 2016, 12:51:58 AM
I ran a test on the same MLV file on an HFS+ filesystem and the resulting quicktime was all in order. So I was pretty sure the results I was getting must've been due to the 'find' command somehow returning a list of dng files in jumbled order when run on a directory of dng files that are stored in a ZFS volume.

So I opened all the FFmpeg_produce files and added " -s " to every invocation of "find". I ran it on the MLV stored on HFS+ and there was no adverse effect. Then I ran it on the MLV stored on ZFS and the result was a quicktime file with frames in the proper order. So the find invocations looked like:

find -s "$out""$out3""$name""$sl". -maxdepth 1 -iname '*.dng' -print0 | xargs -0 dcraw +M $h2 $o $S -c -6 -W -q 3 $gam $wb $pix | ffmpeg $wav -f image2pipe -vcodec ppm -r "$fps" -i pipe:0 $sd -vcodec prores_ks -pix_fmt yuv444p10 -n -r "$fps" $cin$cin_01$cin_02$cin_03$cin_01b$cin_02b$cin_03b$scale$denoise$sharpen "$out""$out2"$(date +%F)_ProRes4444/"$name".mov 2> out_01


Just that little "-s" flag did the trick. So that seems to be a solution.

Pretty weird little quirk of find and openzfs. Interesting.

Hi sorry noob here.

I want to figure out a workflow to convert my 48fps 1920x508 to 48fps 1920x818 with MLP. Since I will love to avoid AE in all cost. But if this can not be done, I will love to know how should I approach this. So after I ran MLP with a folder of all the dng files, do I important them into After Effects to stretch them to 1920x818? And from After Effects, how can I easily get a ProRES4444 C-log mov file so I can edit inside Adobe Premiere? I use Magic Bullet Colorista for color grading so if it is c-log, I know what to do next. But do I output from After Effects to ProRes4444 after stretching? Or can I stretch the footage and save it back as DNG sequence for Resolve to color grad to create offline edit in Premiere? Sorry I am so confuse the Mark III RAW workflow here and I am noob and trying to figure it out. Lots of guide out there is out of date... Thank you so much in advanced!

No stretching in AE necessary. MLP(dcraw actually) will unstretch your footage upon export.
Also check this workflow. Pretty much the same but simplified and stand alone.

hi all,

noob here - please forgive the lack of etiquette. I have ML on my camera and have shot some raw footage - lovely. Hats off to the devs. However, I am not a developer, nor a video workflow expert - I'm just a dude who wants to see what he filmed on the big screen of his computer, rather than on the teeny screen of his camera. I thought I had success with CR2HDR - which created .dng files without issue - it also apparently installed MLRawviewer, which seemed really cool, because I could view my MLV files! But then when I thought, hey, it would be cool to share this as a .mov for friends and family, I ended up down a rabbit hole - somehow I got to MLP and installed it and all the addons, but now when I right click an MLV file and choose MLP, it creates a tiff file and two dng's, then it deletes the dng's. no other output - nada.

What am I doing wrong, and is there an easy way to go from the MLV on my SD card to a .mov on my Mac?

Thx!

@johnnay - MLP is and can be quite complex for a first time user (but easy enough to follow through and get it figured out) meanwhile why don't you take a peak at @Danne's latest work in cr2hdr.app (https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=15108.0cr2hdr.app) which has all the bells and whistles especially for the recent lossless (https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=19300.msg182052#msg182052lossless) compression.

As deafeyejedi points out I strongly suggest working with cr2hdr.app instead. It can export to mov files just as good as MLP.
FYI when you right click onto a file in MLP it creates a preview tiff. THe dng files are leftovers from this process and will be deleted once the tiff is created.

Hi all,

My first post on this forum and a little out of desperation.  Have been trying to figure out how to use the MLP script for hours now and can't figure it out.

Basically what I want to do it blend together my dual ISO files from my canon 5D3 to make an HDR video.  I have read the user guide over and over and only get to the point where I can move the .txt files from one folder to the hold folder.  From there, I cannot work out how to do the next step to merge the high iso files with the low iso files.

I am total newb at this an really hoping someone can give me some quick guidance on this.

Much appreciated!

Aaron

Post by: Walter Schulz on July 10, 2017, 08:09:11 PM
Sorry, but you are mixing things up:
Dual ISO generates frames where alternating lines with different ISO settings are used in each single frame. This will preserve frame rate. Downside: Vertical resolution is diminished and you have to deal with aliasing.
HDR video option will generate alternating frames (normal/low exposure) thus output will not harm resolution but results in*half* the frame rate.

Thanks Walter.
Regarding processing dualiso files I suggest you jump to cr2hdr.app instead. It will automate the processing. Much more simplified.
