Hi, that is interesting.
Could you implement batch export of some lower quality proxy movie files? Export time would be crucial, it could use some very basic, low quality encoding just to be fast and give an ability to work in a field even on weak laptops. Mlrawviewer is great but unfortunatelly it is not developed anymore, it has only high quality export and it can be very slow on older machines. My point is: im out for a couple of days,  i have only a basic laptop with me, i am shooting some things and i would like to check the footage, generate low quality proxys and work with them, change to full quality on desktop computer when back home. I have laptop with i5, 12gb of ram, weak nvidia 920m, 5200rpm HDD - mlrawviewer plays almost in real time. THere is no proxy option, export to high quality prores is painfully slow. Could you do something to improve that?

Actually, yes! I thought about it, and i did it in prototype. There are several ways to improve encode speed: H264 with low bit-rate, Fast PreRes codec, using leaner or pixeldemosaicing or even double downscale. Color space conversion does not affect the speed. I can implement a few methods.

And i forgot about the sound. I need mlv-samples with audio tracks. From different cams.

Nice App ! but I having black-level problems, green cast no matter what I set the level to, using 5D2 MLV files, black-level should be 1750  looks better at 2000
and at play back I get flashing frames some are B/W others are just white or black. Also Pink Hi-Lights in the close to over-expose areas, 
It's like the app is clipping the high-lights and crushing the blacks,
and to be clear there is not problem with the test MLV file as I have processed it thought Mac- MLVFS to A.E.CC/ACR export to ProRes4444XQ
also tested it on Windows 7pro with raw2cdng to Premiere Pro CC2014. It would be nice if you could explain the key functions and or Hot keys used.
For export , I think you should include Cdng's & I like the idea of a MLV header editor. One last thing, It would great to give the file Info (metadata) e.g. Frame W/H ,fps, ISO, etc....
Good job thou, keep developing this app I see big potential here.
Test computer: i5 dell(1764), 8GB ram , 240 GB SSD, ATI Radeon HD4300

Thank you!

but I having black-level problems
I just added black level control manually.
I have an idea to make auto black level calculation from the darkest frame.

There's green button. It should levels green to normal.

Can you send me mlv-sample with troubles? I have 50D that has the same black level. But it looks fine.

and at play back I get flashing frames some are B/W others are just white or black.
And i fixed the problem with frame cache.

In the near future I'm going to write the manual. But it's simple.
Three buttons: 1. Green Correction 2. Debayering method 3. Color space.
Then filters.

There's no hot keys yet. But will be.

I need to dig in cdng file format

Hi AWPStar, could you implement:
-in/out points for export
-lower quality preview but faster
-ability to drag/drop many files and buttons/hot keys for next/previous

Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: arrinkiiii on May 30, 2015, 10:49:14 AM
WOW  Very nice =)   

Its open source ?   

If possible, please, please just integrate this http://opencolorio.org/  on the app for we use Cinelog from Andy6000 and LUT's. I don't have time for today to try out your app but if the recover buttons (shadows/highlight)  work good it will be just wonderful. In ACR you can't do this because you will have exposure change in the video.  Looks very promising =)   ...of course h.265 would be more nice  :P  8)

Post by: Andy600 on May 30, 2015, 12:15:14 PM
Hi @AWPStar - Nice idea! I have a suggestion/request. Before adding a bunch of editing/grading features, concentrate on integrating pixel-accurate, fast metering (i.e. a vectorscope, RGB parade, histogram etc). Most of these transcoding apps fail because the end user cannot accurately judge things like white balance, levels, saturation etc - it's not something that can be done easily without scopes, even by a pro on a calibrated reference monitor.

Also, why not just pickup development on MLRawViewer instead of building an app from scratch? The source code is available and it's 'nearly there' in terms of usability. It could use a more visually intuitive point-and-click GUI rather than hotkeys and, of course, meters.

If you plan to integrate certain ML algorithms (by a1ex) you will be required to publish your source code due to GNU licensing conditions.

Keep up the good work! :)

So Cinelog is OpenSource, but i cant use it without integrading with OpenColorIO?

There is histogram. I want to add waveform/RGB parade. Vectorscope not now. mb later.

i don't know python. And sometimes it is useful to reinvent the wheel.
What ML algorithms (by a1ex)?
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: Andy600 on May 30, 2015, 04:02:40 PM
@AWPStar - Cinelog is commercial, not OS (some of it is artistic but mainly technical). We have our own processing routines for building special luts and camera profiles and we do all the math ourselves plus Cinelog can be used for many different cameras and colorspaces, not just ML/DNG. You can find all the transfer functions and primary transform math (the same data we base much of Cinelog on) in most camera manufacturers white papers and you could even implement debayering to Cinelog reference colorspace (a derivative of Log-C) if you want - the coefficients are on our website.

OpenColorIO is OS and can be implemented freely. There are ACES 1.0 configurations and basic 1D transfer function configs (default Nuke config) but there are presently no IDTs for ML raw shooting cameras (I'm working on those, or will be once we sort out the color meta). Cinelog OCIO config has a few more options, colorspaces and transforms for working with DNGs in ACR/AE/Premier and DaVinci Resolve.


re: GPU - there is a big (ugly) post about it here http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=11879.0 It applies if you plan a commercial, closed source app for developing MLRaw files, in which case you have a choice to publish source code or develop your own algorithms. If it's free it's still a good idea to publish your source code as users may chip in and help.

Incidentally, the color specific work we are presently doing for ML will be OS - the aim of this is to get support for MLV in ACES.

Also, as you are not really tied to a specific internal colorspace you should consider using ACES. I'd be happy to assist you with the math for backend transforms but you would have to implement the actual code.

@Andy600 has a valid point about the possibility to try and finalize MLRV since its "nearly completed" and works for both Mac and PC.

However, I also understand @AWPStar's perspective that it may be easier to start from scratch especially if he doesn't know Python.

I just tried running the latest MLVProducer on Windows here at work on their computers and I must admit it does look promising.

Just either try to duplicate as much as possible from MLRV or stick with your original plan. Windows users will be happy on their end.

Thanks for sharing and best of luck!

Footer at the end? Interesting. Do you you know footer's structure and lenght?
I can get length cause i know frame size.

There's some delimiters between frames?

I got something like:
4 Bytes: RAWM
2 Bytes: Width
2 Bytes: Height
4 Bytes: Frame data size
2 Bytes: Frame's count
some 6 bytes
2 Bytes: Frame rate
....

And frame data size of larger than Raw Data. 2176 extra

@AWPStar: The more I play with this app of yours on Windows @ work... the more I wish you can make one for Mac -- It's just a fun tool to have in hand!

Hi!
1. It is result of artefact reduction. Without it you can get this (http://s22.postimg.org/wt6tylhr5/test22.png). It is not so much better, but you'll get more aliasing. I'm thinking about balance...
2. Don't worry, it's just synthetic test. In real picture you can't get that glitch.

You should understand that you can not reconstruct 100% of image from 25% of red,25% of blue and 50% of green for 4 pixels. It is just impossible.

WB picker is ready. 3D Lut(Adobe cube) in progress. Trying to increase speed.

Thank you AWPStar! It is really great update!

Some quick thoughts after couple of minutes with this version:
(tested on windows 7, i7, 16GB ram, GTX570)


- in file/open should be MLV instead of MLW - not really important, just typo
- is it possible to select in/out points for render? ok, it is in hot keys i/o
- could you add little "reset" buttons for each slider on the left?
- when i am rendering the file out of mlv i cannot find any output file in selected folder. Tried different codecs, rendering process is nicely fast though -5-15 fps :)

Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: AWPStar on June 19, 2015, 08:35:09 AM
@kgv5, Thank you!
-There is button near text field. You can click it and select folder. But it may not work. Just keep it default("output") for this version.
-Right) Thanks you, i'll fix it.)
-y. three button at top panel. Or hotkeys I/O/C

-Middle mouse button will reset value. You can also use Shift to control it more accurate.
-Sure, i will.


And about fast export:

Also changes codec profile.

THanks for the answer, UI is great :)
- when i am rendering the file out of mlv i cannot find any output file (seems like nothing is created) in selected folder. Tried different codecs, rendering process is nicely fast though -5-15 fps :)
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: AWPStar on June 19, 2015, 09:01:47 AM
Can you send me path pattern you use?
And try to use default folder("output") it should work. If it doesn't, pls. tell me app folder.
And while the rendering is in progress, in app's main folder should be created "tmp" file. Is it in there?
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: kgv5 on June 19, 2015, 09:07:41 AM
I got it, if i render to the root directory like d:\ - file is there and works. If i select any folder - nothing is there. I have checked folder names with spaces and without  - no files in it. BTW fast render is really fast :) Checked on my laptop - win 8.1, i5, 12GB ram, gt920m - it runs over 30fps :)

Oh, and it seems it is changing to default "output" directory every time.
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: AWPStar on June 19, 2015, 09:16:10 AM
For each new task/file is used default settings.
You can also open queue(press "Q") and use settings for each file separatly.

Anyway, i will try to fix any bug =)
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: kgv5 on June 19, 2015, 09:30:42 AM
I see. Further testing:

i opened the app, than opened queue, added 3 mlvs. From menu on the left i chose ultra fast preview (codec changed to h264 420 preview) clicked render queue. THe first file rendered with this setting but for the next two settings went back to h264 422 codec and rendering obviously slowed down by half. Now im testing on win7 desktop, no files created in output and even in root folder. I had the app on c drive in download folder, i thought that maybe it is because of some windows limitations and creating files on c drive. But moving the whole app to a different drive didnt changed anything.
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: AWPStar on June 19, 2015, 10:01:14 AM
All sets that you make, applies just to current file/task. You should chose "ultra fast preview" in each task.
Probably i should make some functions to copy/exchange settings.

Hello there!
I need RAW/MLV samples with vertical banding. On my 50D i can get it only with vertical lines every 4 pixels.
And please test "Remove focus dots" function.

@Ottoga
Thank you for testing and bugreport.

i'll try to do changelog. But it is quite complicated, because i'm doing a lot of changes everyday. Maybe just new features?

I don't really understand what the problem do you have with sliders. Its smooth and accurate. Left click to set value,mid click to reset value, shift to improve accuracy.
What OS do you use?

I have tested this on two different laptops with the same result.

My primary laptop is an ASUS S550C (w8.1 pro, Intel HD graphics driver). The following link is a screen shot of it specifications.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/6u8eealwc62tc0q/Computer%20Spec.JPG?dl=0 (https://www.dropbox.com/s/6u8eealwc62tc0q/Computer%20Spec.JPG?dl=0)

The other laptop is a DELL Latitude E6400 (w10, Intel HD mobile graphics driver)


The following link is a screen shot highlighting the slider issue:  https://www.dropbox.com/s/gue4cf5r6hugxnn/MLVProducer_Sliders_issue.JPG?dl=0 (https://www.dropbox.com/s/gue4cf5r6hugxnn/MLVProducer_Sliders_issue.JPG?dl=0)

The Black Slider works perfectly (including the mid click and shift for accuracy controls).

The same is not true for the White Balance and Correction sliders:
Note that in the mlvp.alpha.build002 all of the sliders work correctly as per your latest feedback as well as the entry of decimal values where appropriate.
        The only issue that I have observed is this build is that I can enter values greater than than the min/max values intended for the individual parameter.

Cheers.... Otto

i could not get this bug. i did not use win8, but on win7 & win10 it works well. Maybe you have some specific OS settings? scaling or something else?
i'll try to make test app to get more information.

To my knowledge both are standard installs. I tend not to fiddle with the os settings (If it ain't broke I don't fix it).

What code changes if any have been made between alpha 2 v the current release?

Hey,
I just discovered your programm and thought about giving it a try, because I got really frustrated with all the other ones. So I opened the latest version, but when I try to open a MLV, it just does nothing, did I something wrong?

I also would like to mention that in order to see the "Output" Parameter on the left side, I have to close the "Filters" Option, and even there I only can see in Fullscreenmode the "Local Contrast" and "Gamma Red".
So is there a possibility to add a slider or scale the programm to a resolution of 1366x768 pixels because this is the highest resolution of my laptop.

Thank you for your work, the programm looks nice anyway :D

"With menu->Open MLV/RAW"? Have you tried drag files?

I think i can try to make scaling, but later. Now, in my todo list are 37 items. And it grows. i'll remove gamma control for channels and add it to basic correction.

Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: Ottoga on July 08, 2015, 07:55:33 AM
@AWPStar

Just some more feedback. I have now tested v605 on 4 different computers.

1 x w8.1 professional
1 x w8.1 home
1 x w10 Enterprise
1 x w7

All Are 64 bit versions of the OS and all exhibit the same behaviours as previously reported.

One thing that I hadn't tried previously was adjusting the sliders prior to loading any MLV clips. What I discovered was that I could adjust the slider +/- and the highlight would appear relative to the amount of slide applied. However the value of the amount of slide applied was not calculated and presented in its value box.

The following links are screen shots demonstrating the behaviour:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/5mnmglw6erzl2ci/MLVProducer_Slider_Issue_1.JPG?dl=0 (https://www.dropbox.com/s/5mnmglw6erzl2ci/MLVProducer_Slider_Issue_1.JPG?dl=0)
https://www.dropbox.com/s/2wjqt57w4j3gaza/MLVProducer_Slider_Issue_2.JPG?dl=0 (https://www.dropbox.com/s/2wjqt57w4j3gaza/MLVProducer_Slider_Issue_2.JPG?dl=0)

If I then subsequently loaded an MLV clip (via drag n' drop) I got the following error:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/z6ik1y7mqcfmqnc/MLVProducer_FileLoad_Issue_3.JPG?dl=0 (https://www.dropbox.com/s/z6ik1y7mqcfmqnc/MLVProducer_FileLoad_Issue_3.JPG?dl=0)

I know that you have previously mentioned that you are unable to reproduce the errors that I have reported re: the sliders (and I accept that to be true). Given that I have 4 different computers with various versions of Windows and all exhibiting the same behaviour, it suggests that I am missing something.

Are there any per-requisites that I've overlooked or am not aware of re:

32bit vs 64bit OS versions?
Run time libraries?
Graphics Card/Chipset  compatibility? eg: Intel HD vs Nvidia vs Radeon etc
OpenGL compliance?
Minimum memory requirements? all have 2gb or >
Other?

I have validated that my processors support MMX and SSE

Ok, so this is very, very impressive. There are a couple things I can't find, however. If someone can help me figure out how to queue multiple files for batch encoding, that would be awesome. I see the render queue but I don't know how to add files to the queue. Is it possible is these builds? Also I can't seem to export audio, although I know the mlv files have audio. Am I missing something? and I apologize if I don't sound grateful, because, I am very grateful!

VMWare has less performance than Wine, because you are running than two operation systems at once. Therefor Wine is less compatible. But for this program, Wine is sufficient.

Gotcha that makes sense & Thanks for pointing that out @masc!

Btw, how do you manage to install the Visual Basic Libraries via WineTricks?
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: Danne on July 19, 2015, 06:44:58 PM
Hi @masc

Could you tell more in detail how you did this?

I installed this. Where do I get visual basic libraries and how do I install the exe file?

Thats the first step, what you have there. Click on "Update", than the wrapper installs. Now WineSkin is ready to work on your system.

Click on Create new blank wrapper. WineSkin builds a wrapper now. Install all you get in the following windows.

When ready you have an .app! So your Windows Program can look like a OSX .app. In this package, there is another app: a helping program. First time you click on your wrapper this opens automatically. Open this one.

Press on install software. "copy a folder inside", select it.

When pressing on "advanced", you'll get more buttons:
Under the first tab you can select your copied .exe, and config under associated extensions what happens when opening an .mlv with this app.

Under "Tools" you'll find "winetricks". There you search under dll for "Visual Basic 6 Runtime". Install it.

That should be all. MLV Producer runs than nearly like an native OSX application.


First time using it, it may be a little confusing. But really... it is very simple and runs with a lot of windows programs.

The only "bug" I can see, is that the program chrashes when changing the output folder. But when just rendering there is no problem. The output video file is then inside the .app package... so no real problem.

Nice!

@masc
You can actually change default output folder by editing "\data\settings.set" file. key "outputdir".

Post by: masc on July 19, 2015, 07:49:16 PM
@AWPStar: thanks, that works!
@all Mac users: the line in the settings.set must be (just change "yourProfileName") if you like to output to your Desktop:
outputdir[/Volumes/Macintosh HD/Users/<yourProfileName>/Desktop]

@masc Great!
@DeafEyeJedi Thx for sharing!

I think, Wine does not support Dialogue box for folder selection.
Have you tried copy/paste path to the text field? It will just change path variable.
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: masc on July 20, 2015, 12:08:16 PM
Copy/Paste to the text field works also. Do you use another library for the folder selection (we should install that too)? In other programs I use that makes no problem. Your file selection dialog (Import MLRAW under "file") works fine.
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: AWPStar on July 20, 2015, 12:23:32 PM
@masc I use winapi. same as file selection dialog. I'll try to figure out how to make it work.

Post by: masc on July 20, 2015, 12:49:55 PM
@AWPStar: some more information for you:
Clicking on the Output folder '...' button in the main gui:
The error is "Run-time error '91': Object variable or With block variable not set"
Clicking in the settings window on the '...' buttons brings:
The error is "Run-time error '445': Object doesn't support this action"

It may be a wine bug and not your fault. The web is full with such vb error messages using wine... but I can't see a real solution.

Great progress everyone on board...

Just woke up and wanted to give it another shot with MLVP and it's directory output for export... I think I'm doing something incorrectly and this is from copying and paste (from post 127 & 128) so please bear with my stupidness with Windows... It's been years since I had my last Dell... LOL

Post by: dpjpandone on July 21, 2015, 04:30:03 AM
so what is a good workflow when using a program like this? I usually do primary corrections (white balance, exposure,  noise reduction) to the DNG's in after effects then render to prores visionlog for editing, and final grading.

What colorspace and codec are you guys using with this program?
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: dpjpandone on July 21, 2015, 06:01:07 AM
Can you please explain lift vs. reconstruct vs. ultrafast vs. none? In previous version it said reconstruct was "best" but I have noticed that exposure seems more accurate when set to "lift" am I sacrificing quality by using that setting?

none no green channel correction
reconstruct shifts green channel down with reconstruction of highlights(in situation when green channel can be overexposed, but R and B not).
Lift Lifts R and B up to align channels. Image can be overexposed
ultrafast It's like reconstruct, but without green reconstruction. In whites you can get pink.

I'm afraid you're right regarding HDR. May be best to leave that alone. So many different workflows out there.

In regards to Dual-ISO -- do you still need more MLV's camera specifically wise?

thank you for your explanation regarding green channel. Can you please tell me which color space I should use for LUT's that expect LOG32 input? SLOG does not seem to work. So far I am getting good results with LUT's that expect Rec.709, but I am afraid that I am losing some information since Rec.709 limits lowest and highest values. Do you think the program will eventually support ACR camera profiles like visionlog? http://www.vision-color.com/visionlog/

Confirmed this new beta worked with 25fps MLV files (although it said 24.9 on the quicktime file info which was odd):

Also is this normal for this strange effect to happen after typing in numbers inside the index next to sliders?:

Will try to get a bunch of Dual-ISO files in varieties of exposures (can they be in 1-2 seconds long) from my cams since you just need the metadata from the files, correct?

Post by: Andy600 on August 14, 2015, 03:54:12 PM
@AWPStar - you mention 'Cinematic' colorspace? but this places an important part of your app in unknown territory. Can you share the RGB chromaticity and white point it uses in case anyone wants to render log intermediates in this colorspace and transform later to a display referred colorspace? Would it not be better to use a common wide gamut colorspace like Adobe RGB, melissaRGB or even ACES CG? 'Cinematic' is a bit vague.
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: dpjpandone on August 14, 2015, 10:26:59 PM
This is the reason I would like a "Known" standard. My problem is not with values out of range, but If I'm trying to match footage across multiple cameras (BMPCC, FS700, DSLR Etc.) I have LUT's for each one, and they all should match very closely with this method. There are no LUTS designed for "Cinematic" so although the results may look pleasing with cinematic, they must be manually matched to the other cameras. If your app could support SLOG2 or CLOG or LOGC, or VISIONLOG I have LUTS that will match those to all the other cameras I work with. Either that, or DNG output. I know there are many other tools that output DNG's, but yours is the only one that has an EXCELLENT method of removing pink dots!
 

BTW - I can't thank you enough for all the hard work you're doing. I totally gave up on shooting raw with the EOSM because none of the other methods to remove pink dots were acceptable for me. The pink dot removal in your app gives the best results by far! Also, it makes raw to intermediate so easy and fast that i am now using raw to shoot everything (before I only used it for short films, and was still using .h264 for commercials or family stuff because the turnaround was too slow!)
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: Andy600 on August 14, 2015, 10:59:52 PM
@dpjandone - It's a common misconception thinking you can match cameras this way.

You can certainly match greyscale values (i.e. a 1D log curve, s-curve, display transfer function etc) if the DR of each camera is similar but color matching cameras is a much more complex procedure even if the chromaticity values and white point are known. The end result completely depends on the sensor, calibration and any internal processing that happens under the hood of each camera.

The best method is not to match one camera to another but match both cameras to a common set of reference values (a Colorchecker or other chart). This transform ideally needs to be handled by a matrix (least squares) with pixel values remapped in linear light but a matrix is also linear and can't offset any non-linear processing that happens in-camera. This is one of the main reasons ACES exists but even that is not perfect and camera manufacturers IDTs still do not produce any color uniformity. 
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: dpjpandone on August 14, 2015, 11:29:17 PM
On a recent project, the majority of the footage was shot on BMCC. There was some aerial footage shot on a GOPRO, and some pickup shots done with 5D2 (MLRAW). The Canon MLRAW footage was converted to Visionlog in ACR. All footage had a kodak vision 3 50D LUT applied (from visioncolor impulz) there are LUT's for gopro, bmcc, and visionlog in that package (as well as many others) Everything had to be tweaked a bit, especially from the gopro footage, but the MLRAW and BMCC footage matched up very nicely. I'm talking about the actual look. We were trying to emulate a certain film stock (vision3 50D) and  it worked. Impulz LUTS are applied in two passes, first you apply an LUT that emulates the camera negative (in a cineon log space), then you do your grade on top of that then you apply the 2nd LUT to emulate a print stock (and transform to Rec.709)

What am I doing wrong? Should I shoot an x-rite color chart with each camera under each different lighting scenario? And grade each shot so that the charts match before adding a creative look to the footage? Wouldn't these tweaks still go after the print negative LUT is applied?
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: Andy600 on August 14, 2015, 11:46:15 PM
Your not really doing anything wrong and if it works for you that's all that really matters.

There are going to be significant differences in color between those cameras but, if the levels and white balance are in the same ballpark I think the film emulation luts will distract anyone but pixel peepers. If you want uniform color then matching every camera to a reference first will give you the best results and might save some time when it comes to balancing shots in the edit.
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: xaled on August 17, 2015, 02:09:47 PM
Great tool!

It includes everything that I wanted so far to work with mlv.

Few things I noticed that deserve to be fixed/enhanced.

- presets for hot pixel removal and corrections do not get picked after being copied from old to the new MLV Producer presets folder
- none of the h.264 renderings can be played out on my samsung TV. H.246 movs directly from my 600d camera play out without problem.
- During tryouts of h.264 renderings I pulled sd card out of reader slot and then after noticing that TV wont play it I put sd card back in to reader. Trying to rerender the mlv from the sd card using a different h.264 preset gave an error that the volume has changed. The error makes sense, but If I click ok on the notification the rendering continues for few seconds and then the same error notice pops up. Some volume error handling routine or maybe recovering from volume change would be great.
- Adding configurable strings for ffmpeg invocation presets would be nice as well.

General question to all MLV Producer users - what FPS do you get on h.264 renderings?
I`m having 14 FPS independent of h.264 preset on my new i7 laptop running win10 an it does not sound like a lot to me.

Thank you again for the great tool!

Post by: Andy600 on August 19, 2015, 05:22:53 PM
@AWPStar - IRE scaling ;) You must first scale input values (float) then apply the transfer function to the scaled values. It's in the doc that @djpandone linked to. Even some pro apps still get this part wrong. Same goes for Canon log.

I don't think the log functions in MLRawViewer are correct btw.

Also @djpandone - a 1D log transform is not in itself a colorspace. A colorspace is defined by the chromaticity of the RGB channels, the white point and the transfer function or gamma. A 1D lin-to-log transform from Rec709 will still maintain Rec709 RGB values when the curve is inverted.

@Andy600
I do not really understand what is IRE(and its range), and what coefficient should i use to scale input values.
in this doc i've seen
Quote
scale = (2**14.0)/float(l.n-1.0)
f = float(i)*scale
But it's just normalizing.

(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fs7.postimg.org%2Favdxnhuwb%2Fire.jpg&hash=647b1572d19d8e0550a4965614639a80)
So coefficient should be 1/1.095, but then I get white point value = 0.575.
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: Andy600 on August 19, 2015, 06:18:34 PM
IRE is basically a relative scale (percentage) for the amplitude of a video signal.

In the context of Slog and Canon log (only) this scaling function is the difference between log encoding of the legal range values or the full range values. In post production and luts, if you don't scale the input values as per the exact formula requires, the inverse (log2lin) function will produce incorrect linear code values and will shift the black, middle grey and white levels - sometimes clipping pixel values and introducing noise/artifacts. It's quite clever but can be a bitch to understand or implement.

I'll see if I can find a correct implementation of it in source code for you.

Post by: dpjpandone on August 19, 2015, 06:51:45 PM
I don't think this will answer your question about IRE, but I just wanted to share this document with you, There is some great info in here regarding color encoding, LOG transforms, and LUTS:

http://library.imageworks.com/pdfs/imageworks-library-cinematic_color.pdf

and there are some great resources at the bottom, one of them is a website dedicated to color conversion maths:

bugs that i found so far:
1. press "Calc" for black level doesn't apply it immediately, i need to change any settings to apply it
2. if mlvproducer is not in focus and i press F11 in any other applications, it invokes "going to fullscreen" in mlvproducer

suggestions:
1. if video ended, and i press space again, it should start playback again
2. middle mouse button resets setting, its good, but i think many people will try dbl click to reset settings as in adobe apps
3. use arrow keys / mouse wheel for sliders to change value
4. mouse wheel for zoom in preview
5. "output folder" set it by default the same as mlv file, or add option for it in mlvproducer settings
6. remember window position setting on exit, if i "maximize window", it should maximize it on open (maximize is not F11)
7. add highlight black/white clipping option
8. i'm not a pro and i don't understand all this colorspace things, but i wish there would be a "none" setting to export video "as is" (maybe i just dont undrestand how to do that)
from app: http://puu.sh/jKjQm/1118758fe0.jpg
as is: http://puu.sh/jKjRB/c6b975bff7.jpg (chrome smoothing 2x2, this picture will produced by MLVMystic or mlv_dump)

i use 650D and shoot mlv in aspect ratio 2.35:1 1728x736

focus dots remover works great, only can notice it if i shift exposure to +5
http://puu.sh/jKmMW/b4d44e1fb0.jpg
http://puu.sh/jKmM6/b7c5ef80ce.jpg

this is dng file if you need example to reduce focus dots even better

and this is original mlv file (first 11 frames, cutted with mlv_dump)

I've noticed that the included SLOG is way off, changing gamma to around -2.20 corrects this.

I've also notice the same as the above post. I would also expect SRGB to look like his example from mlv dump. It seems that perhaps a lot of the functions that are converting from linear may have errors. Can I take a look at your code, at least the lines where the transforms are done, to see if I can help?
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: dpjpandone on August 24, 2015, 07:50:50 PM
OK,

  I downloaded your MLV file (sorry it took so long, it was 1GB, had to do it at work on fast internet)

I made a screen capture of MLV Producer in SRGB, SLOG, and SLOG with Kodak 50D LUT applied (this LUT designed for SLOG)
I also took screen capture of MLRawViewer in the same 3 settings to show the difference.

I uploaded the 6 files here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/7zybdggpu3jocl7/AAC9KCKZkR6t8buwOfsUpwIVa?dl=0

There is not much color in the MLV file of the lighthouse, but the difference is still apparent. When you look at examples that has a lot of color in the image, it is even more noticeable. I have tried numerous combinations of colorspaces/corrections and no matter what i do, the resulting image always seems underexposed and desaturated. I thought perhaps It was just me until i saw the images posted above by Kutu.

Since the results are the same regardless of colorspace, it makes me think perhaps the problem lies in the first transform before conversion to any of the colorspaces. I don't know how the processing pipeline goes, but I imagine it debayers to linear first and then converts to the selected colorspace?

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you with this. I can send more footage, more test images, more LUT's, review code,  whatever you need.

As always, I really appreciate your hard work on this app, and i feel like this could easily become the best solution for rendering dailies/proxy's of MLV footage with just a few minor adjustments.

Thanks!

Very messy code for reading
raw_Get16bit - main function
GenerateLUT - generates lut

I don't know why mlvrv makes oversaturated images. you get "as-is" image out of mlvp.

Order:
-Decoding from 14bit
-Apply Lut(converting to color space)
-Debayering

i found out that mlrawviewer overexpose image in accordance with white level(recorded to rawi block) and lose details in highlights.
So i won't use white level values. Black level is not accurate too.

I think the Your customized NR and NeatVideo_x1 seems to be the best out of all 4.

ACR works OK but has a little softness to it.

NVx5 adds too much softness, IMO.

Again it all depends on the scene/take situation.

Optical Flow would definitely help restore the details a bit more.

issues and suggestions for "queue":
1. close queue window with "q" key (or minize/maximize it, as with top-right "^ / v" button)
2. [bug] list of files is not scrollable
3. add button "index all" files, or if few files selected "index selected"
4. add different views for list of files - "list" / "thumbnails" / "combined" (little thumbnail + list), thumbnail should be current frame (or first frame if just indexed)
5. add "Recently Open" files / queues in "File" menu
6. add in status line at the bottom "current queue file number (5/50)" (main window)
7. add shortcut for "next/prev file in queue" (maybe ctrl+pgup ctrl+pgdn) (main window)
8. arrow, home, end, pgup, pgdn keys navigation in queue list
9. add ability to "mute" file in queue, to not render it with "render queue" button
10. [bug] "paste" window is not closable with "X" button
11. [bug] if several files selected, "up/down" buttons move only one file
12. add ability to select individual files by holding ctrl, and ctrl+a to select all
13. open queue window at the same place where it was closed
14. add "override output" settings section, if checked, then all/selected files in queue will be rendered with chosen encoder and into selected folder

another bug:
MLVProducer window get active, if i just move mouse cursor over buttons/sliders. Or for example, if you select Windows task bar and press F11 and then move mouse over some controls in MLVProducer, then MLVProducer will get focus and go into fullscreen mode

I thought it had something to do with accessing the MLV files via a network drive that was previously mapped to some unrelated network path. Although explorer would correctly browse to R:\50d1 mapped to \\192.168.1.25\g$\50d1 etc, it would display the old \\some\really\old\path\here in the address bar, which was due to remnants in the Registry under a MountPoints2 key under Explorer.  But as suspected, removing this didn't solve the issue since it was only for display only.

The real culprit was, I had accessed the particular MLV file when mapped to drive K:, then I remapped it to drive R:
I received this error any time I tried to access it.
I didn't realize it was only this file, since I happened to have also accessed yet another file with the same error so I didn't try anymore files I suppose...

Anyway, I did a little troubleshooting and discovered that it was referencing the old path in the IDX files using HXD and procmon

Group editing - great feature!

some questions:

- do you spawn ffmpeg instance per core to increase multicore usage when doing group renderings, or do any other multicore optimization?
- could you add the upscale option from different camera raw resolutions like 960x540 to 1920x1080?

Thanks,

Ty!

Try this one. M13-1437.mov (https://www.dropbox.com/s/ugvfcaojhumizx9/M13-1437.mov?dl=0)

-Files should render in queue order. But ffmpeg uses multithreading to encode files. And some filters works in 2 threads. I am woring on it.
-It is in my todo list. But now you can render with DNxHD encoder. It is always 720p or 1080p.

Ahh it's just possible that in the IDX code, you may have checked for existence earlier, for the current opening .mlv/.raw file, then didn't expect the path to differ in idx?? idk

i'm not sure what happens if you load a .mlv/.raw then move it to another folder and reopen it

Wow, love this new version.

The only issues that I have found with the UI are:

1) The application window is not maintaining is monitor referential integrity. 

when I drag the application window to my external monitor and double click the title bar or click the maximize button to maximize it: it jumps back to the laptop screen and maximizes instead of maximizing on my monitor (screen 2).

I can manually stretch the application window to make it fill the screen to get around this issue.

2) there were instances where the render button was not visible and there doesn't appear to be any means of collapsing individual tool panels or to scroll the frame where the tool panels are docked.
I could get around this by undocumented the required panel.

You've really taken this app to another level since the I last tested it.  Well done.

I can't seem to find the options/settings dialog in 1772,  I was curious if I could set the ram usage to be more than 1024 by default, (i think the limit was 1536 in the older versions, i suppose i can check the settings file though...).  I used to write a lot of VB6 back in the day, and I believe it's only 32 bit which may limit the process to 2-3gb max... Perhaps multiple processes to get around this? or utilize 64-bit dll etc idk


I wonder how the multithreading is implemented. Is it alternating frames are assigned to render in a new thread? or is it more granular on groups of pixels at a time (perhaps to make debayering a single frame faster etc)

Edit: Nevermind, I forgot the settings is under the gear icon to the left of File


Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: AWPStar on October 12, 2015, 12:40:50 PM
@eatbuckshot
-VB6 can allocate max 2GB(probably because of signed 32bit-Int(Long) pointer). i limited cache with 1.5GB because of app mem. I can increase max cache up to 4GB by using external dll. But i don't think that this would be so useful.
-32bit app cannot allow 64bit dll =(.
-One thread for a half frame. For now. It's hard to make it for debayering - it has non-linear algorithm, but i'm working on it.

@AWPStar
A lot of ML users need raw first.
Every existent software for extract DNG from MLV has it's drawbacks and there is no ideal solution (at least on windows):
mlv_dump - wrong WB, no CDNG - no timecode, auto audio sync in Resolve and so on. Yes, and this is console application :)
MlRawViewer - same as mlv_dump regarding DNG export, have GUI, but abandoned :(
raw2cdng - abandoned, buggy, didn't extract all the metadata (lens info for example) but with correct WB :)
MLVFS - windows port abandoned :(
So, you have the chance to make the best tool :)
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: kgv5 on October 15, 2015, 09:10:05 PM
@AWPStar, i fully agree with mothaibaphoto.
In my latest workflow i often use MLrawviewer just to select couple of seconds out of a much longer footage, than i can delete original, huge MLV and still have raw (extracted DNGs). MLrawviewer is abandoned and unfortunatelly lacks of CDNG. Could you implement extracting MLV to CDNG with in/out points? This with your existing UI would be a killer feature for me.

Is it possible to open the next clip from the folder by just pressing a button?

Very impressive App :D ! But I one thing missing, Is to Export to Cdng's I thing this a must , That what keeps me from using it .
It really pointless to export to a FFmpeg ProRes 10 bit file (Specially 444) To much Clipping in the low & highs , unless you can
access the QT Codec Without FFmpeg. The Only Codec to date that can handle the full range of ML raw is ProRes 4444XQ which is a only MAC thing.
But since your app can run in OSX with some help , I would be nice to access the QT Library path and I think in PC if you got access to the QT Codec
"C:\Program Files (x86)\QuickTime\QTSystem" like the QuickTimeH264.qtx,etc.... then any QT codec installed e.g. SheerVideo Pro.qtx ,BlackmagicRGB.qtx which are installed on my PC & MAC
can be used. But I think it would easier to just export Cdng and transcode to .mov or .avi with standalone different Apps.
CDNG_Format_Specification_v1_1.pdf (http://www.cinema-dng.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/CinemaDNG_Format_Specification_v1_1.pdf)

Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: kgv5 on October 16, 2015, 06:17:28 AM
Ability to have access to the next clips from the folder without having to import them on the first place would be very nice. Like in MLrawviewer where you just selecting a folder from a browser and than press a button and the next (or previous) clip opens (of course its doing this indexing thing first). Could you implement some kind of browser with thumbnails? My workflow now is mostly to insert memory card and select clip fragments with in/out points instantly switching between files. So than I have "filtered" DNG sequences which saves me a lot of hdd space and i can still do everything with them. So thats why we need CDNGs to have ability to easy sync the sound in resolve but still have raw.Of course having option to render clips as proxy files with your app is great. I am still afraid of render movie clips even in good codec and delete raw. Keeping raw at least to the moment when the whole movie is ready is essential to me.

Also dng specification
http://www.adobe.com/content/dam/Adobe/en/products/photoshop/pdfs/dng_spec_1.4.0.0.pdf#page19
I don't want to implement all of DNG-tags. Most of them is useless because MLV doesn't contains some information.

Solved this problem.

i think it is pretty correct WB.


Another good news!
Deflate is working! 2766643 Bytes -> 898402 Bytes against 1747468 of MLRawViewer

Looks real nice. Is it adopting camera wb or are you using some kind of auto wb?

About dng tag spec. Feel free to adopt any tags you like. It, s your application :).

For extra information, the file cannot be opened in Premiere either. Also, Irfanview displays an error of "Decode Error: Not a valid RAW file" when trying to view it. A dng from MLRV for example is viewable, though very very pink in Irfanview.

Thanks! Unfortunately no luck in premiere pro cc over here.
I see that black level is set to 0. That ain,t gonna work. I tried to fix it with exiftool then got this answer.

Code: [Select]
exiftool "-blacklevel=2042" /Users/D/Desktop/tst2.dng
Warning: [minor] Removed 3 invalid entries from IFD0 - /Users/D/Desktop/tst2.dng
    0 image files updated

Here is a file from mlvfs that works.

Thanks!
It should be zero, because i've already subtracted it and scaled range to 16bit.

I can make two versions: compressed and none-compressed .

Ok, no idea how that works. How are you creating your dng:s? Curious of your code and such.
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: senzazn12 on October 17, 2015, 04:38:04 PM
Is it possible for the program to import DNG file folders or Dual ISO DNG's? It would be great if you can implement this.

@AWPStar Great work ,that's Quick ! I can comfirm works in A.E. cc , PS cc & PS cc 2015 but Not Premiere Pro cc , Premiere Pro cc 2015 & Speed Grade cc 2015.
Dose not open in Preview on the MAC , Plus the Size is Wrong , should be more like 3 Mb image not 800Kbs , therefore you have Compression and by the Mac preview
Info it has "Zip" compression and that the problem , Kill the Compression and it should work .
I see it in the "tiff" tags
Code: [Select]
'Compression
    i = addtag( 259, 3, 1)
    memcpy @FS[i], @Compression, 2
but I'm not sure , I think "1" for Uncompressed
Found this now, Have a look  EXIF Compression Values (http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/TagNames/EXIF.html#Compression) you have
 "2 = CCITT 1D" for compression
  "1 = Uncompressed" so yea if you change that to "1" for Uncompressed  then it should work fine .

edit: I also notice you are using "DNG Version 1.2" not sure that a issue but the ones that work have been either 'DNG version 1.1 or 1.4"
 
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: reddeercity on October 17, 2015, 10:55:45 PM
 Looks like only 2 tags of compression supported in dng_spec_1.4.0.0.pdf (http://www.adobe.com/content/dam/Adobe/en/products/photoshop/pdfs/dng_spec_1.4.0.0.pdf#page19)
Quote
Compression
Two Compression tag values are supported in DNG versions before 1.4.0.0:
•Value = 1: Uncompressed data.
•Value = 7: JPEG compressed data, either baseline DCT JPEG, or lossless JPEG compression.
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: AWPStar on October 17, 2015, 11:16:34 PM
@reddeercity
I tried any versions. 1.0-1.4

third parameter of memcpy is data length. not value.

Code: [Select]
Dim As UShort Compression = 88 - Adobe Deflate

(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fs12.postimg.org%2Fxpwje81bh%2Fdeflate.jpg&hash=ed24830d456270a51a3f8eb3da1d1c50)

Probably CinemaDNG doesn't support Deflate.

But ACR can read it.

Post by: reddeercity on October 17, 2015, 11:25:36 PM
just tried RawTherapee 4.2.312 on Windows7 and the Cdng is all black  but when I run it thought the "Adobe dng Convertor"
The only setting I change from default was "no jpeg preview" and "Embed Original Raw File"
Then RawTherapee 4.2.312 would see the image.

Plus  Photo Editor "Aperture" on Mac can't see it ,
Have a look at this post from MLVFS thread when dmilligan was getting the tags for cdng  tags for DNG 1.4.0.0 Validation (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=13152.msg127461#msg127461)
not sure it that will help
 & also source code for "raw2cdng" code/raw2cdng_v2 (https://bitbucket.org/chmee/raw2cdng/src/3b267af91e6c/csharp2010_code/raw2cdng_v2/?at=master)

That's about my limit I can help  :)

I understand now why A.E. & PS can read the Cdng is because you have put in the
XMP Toolkit : Adobe XMP Core
so all the raw adjustment are there for it to read

Edit: just thought of something else , maybe drop the XMP tool kit , doesn't seem to be needed for the metadata from the "raw2cdng"
 cdng template file and it looks like it uses dng version 1.2.0.0

Post by: dmilligan on October 19, 2015, 03:47:12 AM
Subtracting the black level in the output data is a bad idea. Leave the data as is and put the black level in the appropriate DNG tag (Nikon made this mistake and it is the reason that no astrophotographers use Nikons). There are values below the black level and they are important for certain image processing tasks (such as dark frame subtraction, noise reduction, and image calibration for scientific purposes).

Premiere and SpeedGrade are picky and don't actually conform to the full CDNG standard. Only specific "flavors" of CDNG will work. You can refer to the source code of mlvfs or raw2cdng for what specific tags and structure are necessary, but please keep in mind that these programs are GPL, and if you use their source you are required to release your own source.

Timecode metadata is very important for Resolve and some special extra wav metadata in the audio file is required for correct audio sync in Resolve.

Yes, but as i understand, cdng requires uncompressed data or lossless JPEG. And Premiere supports them.

And i can implement only deflate.

It depends on a lut-file. If lut-file requires specific input color space, then you should use that color space.
If not, then it doesn't matter. Use what you like.

P.S. i use sRGB.

I got it, thanks :)

So first thing i tried cdng export and it seems not entirely working yet. I exported sequence as CDNG, i found that there was no *.wav file inside the folder despite i clicked "include sound". I imported this sequence into resolve 12, it was opened but only one frame was visible, not a movie. I have also noticed that exporting CDNGs with exposure setting (tried +3 or so) resulted blown out highlights CDNGs in both ACR and resolve - so looks like the MLV producer settings affects outputted CDNGs.

Well, i am so excited with your new improvements :) It looks like the ultimate Magic Lantern raw app is around the corner :)

 I couldnt find "settings" box from the post above, is it somewhere in the version you have send me?

Bugreport on build1858
Bad news:
1. Timeline window has fixed canvas size. I see middle - up 1920x1080 crop out of 3520x1320 video and find no way to see full size image.
2. Playback is choppy, compared to MLRawViewer.
3. Canon EOS 50D in Exif, actually was shot on 5D MkIII.
4. No lens info (Noone CDNG extracting tool can provide this, though, so no wonder)
5. Incorrect WB in ACR  - 4350 temp and +70 tint, should be 4450 and +16 according to RawtoCDNG. But In Resolve - 6500 temp and 0 tint. Take a look at RawtoCDNG - it provides correct and consistent WB across ACR and Resolve.
6. Extracts correct number of frames, but all the frames are identical - it's the first frame of the video- so, it's not problem with timecode :)
Good news.
1. It imports to Resolve. (!!!!!!!)
2. It has wider waveform than mlv_dump and RawtoCDNG exported files altogether.
How did you get this?
I checked several times - all the settings identical, but yours looks like alredy graded.
It's awesome if you find the way to extract more shadows and highlights, but what if this lead to clipping or something like that? Need more testing though.
In total.
Just one critical problem - only first frame extracted.
Great, great thanks for your efforts !!!

2. It depends on many factors. Debayering method, effects, preview quality. But it is totally not just a viewer.
3.DNG's was not ready to use.
4. I think it is possible.
5. fixed values.
6. see 3)

1. One Frame=)
2. I think it's because i'm replacing WhiteLevel from 15000 to 16383.

If you want another test build so  here it is. :)  (https://www.dropbox.com/s/h1cy7486dl5tmtg/mlvp.alpha.build1908.zip?dl=0)

Hm, okay... for me that works. I'm still on SnowLeo.

2nd way: Open Wineskin inside the package -> "Advanced" -> "Configuration" -> "Associated Extensions" -> "+", enter "MLV" as extension and "C:\Program Files\mlvp.alpha.build<xxxx>\MLVProducer.exe "%1"" as command. Then you can associate mlv with MLVP and doubleclick on your mlv (or just "Open with..."). It opens automatically! ;-)

Working on creating a Mac Version (via Wine Bottler and Wine Tricks). This app looks like it is the new best thing for "developing" MLV files into Prores files for editing (since MLrawViewer stopped working for me). Got everything working UNTIL I click on the "..." to set the output path, which results in a "Runtime error '445'" and the app crashing. Very keen to get this working as it outstrips other programs by a mile.

I would be fine to continue working on packaging MLVP using Wine Bottler, but if you're using Free Basic and VB6 then I might be able to compile a native Mac app using the sources (Free Basic is cross platform and Mono supports VB for Mac). Would love to collaborate and make MLV Producer the end all utility!

I think some of the .dlls might use some variant of BASIC that's not vb6 and the source for those were provided somewhere in the thread, though Mono IIRC is for .net languages, which vb6 came before

It would be neat to be open source though.  I am a fan of it being able to run natively (probably statically linked vb6 library though) or without a framework to install.

First of all; this is the best ML raw processing app i've seen so far, it properly removes the pink dots from my 700d.
However, I have a about 300+ raw clips and I can't globally remove the dots from all clips, so I have to open every clip and select the 'remove focus dots' check box
I've noticed the tabs red colored aren't global and those black are. For example when I change the white balance to very warm, all 300 clips become warm.
But this does not work on the Remove focus dots' checkbox, is there any to fix this? I don't prefer clicking 300+ times to remove focus dots on all the clips.

You can open Media queue, select file, press "Copy" button, then paste settings to all of tasks.

Yes, it's true about red-colored tabs. In Group/Global mode you can only apply corrections. Input settings and Filters won't work.

Interesting project. Saw you are hosting it on SourceForge but can't find your source code. I haven't tried it out yet because I'm deep into helping out on another project, folder_ProRes444_lut which is a part of cr2hdr-r OSX batch conversion app (dng, CR2 ,MLV, RAW, HDR video) (http://magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=13512.0) -- yeah I know it is confusing and it is OS-X only.

In any case, I just thought I'd share some "focus pixel" fixing we've been experimenting with and perhaps you could share your methods. Basically there are a couple of methods. One is using pixel mapping like with the PinkDotRemover tool (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=6658.0) - this is effective but that tool hasn't been maintained for a while and has never worked properly for me. The other method is doing a chroma smoothing that processes the entire image and takes longer to run. Sometimes these methods aren't 100% effective and they don't work on dual_iso, at least not yet. That's what I'm working on.

Currently I'm experimenting with running a "bad pixel" file in dcraw and have gotten some fairly good results. Here's a topic that I started on dealing with focus pixels (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=16054). I put a focus pixel map file in my bitbucket download area (https://bitbucket.org/daniel_fort/magic-lantern/downloads) and will try to update it with other cameras, resolutions, crop mode and non-crop mode, etc. when I can get around to it. In the meantime. Please feel free to comment, PM me, scream at me or whatever it takes if you can figure out how to get rid of focus pixels on dual iso.

One more thing, "cr2hdr --really-bad-pix" does get rid of the focus pixels but it pretty much destroys the images that I have ran it on.

Hi,

I was experimenting with CDNG and DNG exporting with version 1928 today. Both exports seem to work ok.

I don't have any adobe editing software and use CyberLink PhotoDirector (v7) and /or RawTherapee to edit my raw/dng images.

I'm running a w10 pc with the Adobe DNG codec installed.

If I double-click on either the exported CDNG or DNG image both are successfully opened in the windows default photo viewer application. The CDNG image appears a bit washed out vs the DNG one but this can likely be adjusted in photo editor. The main point that I am making here is that both export images can be opened and viewed.

The issue that I came across is that only the CDNG exported dng files can be opened in both CyberLink PhotoDirector and RawTherapee  whereas the DNG exported dng files cannot.

CyberLink PhotoDirector  returns the error "Unable to Decode the Master"

RawTherapee decodes the images and presents them as solid Black. (images are opened using the RawTherapee defaults settings)

Samples below

https://www.dropbox.com/s/orn8rni3rwopgf7/M24-082100000.dng?dl=0 image exported as CDNG
https://www.dropbox.com/s/klyzgz7e560qrae/M24-0821_dng00000.dng?dl=0 image exported as DNG
https://www.dropbox.com/s/arbao5ncbq0d66z/M24-0821_dng00000.dng.pp3?dl=0 RawTherapee sidecar file for image exported as DNG

Given that both images can be viewed successfully with Windows Photo Viewer I suspect that there are required metadata correctly populated in the CDNG export file that are either missing or not correctly populated in the DNG exported files.

Cheers... Otto

Thanks for keeping up the good ol' open source spirit.

You can also use "dot32.dat", "dot32_2.dat" , "dot32_crop.dat". These files contains different patterns.

Im not hiding sources. But it's in chaotic state. Also, BASIC syntax.
sources (https://sourceforge.net/projects/mlvproducer/files/src/)

I searched your repository but couldn't find the "dot32*.dat" files that have the pixel coordinates. So three options are all it takes for all the cameras with the focus pixels issue at every possible resolution or do you have a few patterns and scale them for various resolutions? You're way ahead of me on this and I've got lots of questions but don't want to bog down your progress on MLVProducer.

I'm not really sure exactly how you are blending surrounding pixels to fill in the focus pixels but from the code snippet you posted it looks like you are averaging the surrounding pixels. When you get to dual iso you'll probably find that blending pixels from different lines (y axis) will not work. At least that's what my theory is after taking a very close view of focus pixels in dual iso.

...
Here's a closeup of some focus pixels before processing in cr2hdr.

(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=https%3A%2F%2Ffarm1.staticflickr.com%2F723%2F21904694364_6bfa57295f_z.jpg&hash=3d0650e34e3d0e5aaa05a386c938d196)

The horizontal lines aren't static, they appear to be marching up the frame thus giving the appearance that the focus pixels are jumping around. After processing in cr2hdr or MLVFS the pixels appear to be "smeared" vertically. See one of my early posts for an example of this. I think that dcraw is averaging the surrounding pixels when the "badpixel" file is being processed but this isn't working with dual_iso shots. It seems to me that only the pixels to the immediate left and right of the focus pixel should be used to fill in the "bad" focus pixel and this should probably be done before processing in cr2hdr. Does that seem right? Maybe run it though a version of dcraw that only averages by columns and not rows first and then feed the output into cr2hdr? Is that possible?

dot32_2.dat for 3x5 scaled frames
dot32_crop.dat for crop mode

I've got lots of questions
Feel free to ask.

For now mlvp doesn't support dual-iso processing
I calculate the difference between left and right pixels
And do the same for vertical pixels.
I choose smaller difference.
So dual-iso should not affect the choice, because vertical pixels have high contrast.
Code: [Select]
                i1 = dst[i - 2]
                i2 = dst[i + 2]
                i3 = dst[i - w2]
                i4 = dst[i + w2]
               
                rz1 = Abs(i2 - i1) + Abs(i1 - dst[i - 1])
                rz2 = Abs(i3 - i4) + Abs(i3 - dst[i - sWidth])
                If Abs(i2 - i1) < Abs(i3 - i4) Then
                    dst[i] = (i1 + i2) / 2

1: From the shots where I recorded in crop mode, the focus dots did not get properly removed.
Turning on Remove hot pixels helped a bit but definitely did remove all of them. Do you know a way to fix this?

2: Not sure where to post this but,
I have some weird color artifacts on contrasting edges, I don't know if this is related to my camera (700D) or MLV in general
Edit: apparently this is called moire (I just found out today)

1. Use pattern "24x30" for crop mode.

False color(side effect of moire).

2. Have you tried "new" debayering method?

However, this is not solution for cdng.

And you screenshots looks like out of MLVP with linear or SCDMF debayering, not cdng. But maybe i am wrong.
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: NelsonSigmundoFilms on November 02, 2015, 09:15:47 PM
@AWPStar
I did not know about the new debayering method. When I rendered it I just left it as default, had no idea what it meant.
Now that I look at it the new one looks a lot sharper compared to the linear one. (or linear is just blurry)

Q) Also, does MLVP work like a what you see is what you get, refering to moire/ false color etc.  (in the MLVP viewport) or, do I have render to see what it will actually look like in premiere/ resolve etc?

2) Unfortunately the crop pattern 24x 30 also did not work I tried shifting the pattern it helped a bit, it removed some blue dots in the middle but none red at the top and bottom.
https://i.gyazo.com/3646817da9b3b69ee32e330b41ab6f67.png

new debayer does not seem to get rid of moire/ false color:

I use 700D w/ latest firmware (I believe)
all shots were recorded 1280x544 RAW 2.0 (still better than 1920x1080 h264 :P)
This is a relatively low resolution compared to the sensors resolution
Maybe this is why I have so bad moire? Due a lot of downsampling, I'm not sure.

I just went through all the posts from the beginning and wow, fantastic work. I installed it on a Windows computer and via Wine on my Mac laptop which of course isn't ideal but it does work. One thing that works extremely well is the PayPal donate button on your app. I hope people have been clicking it.

Thanks for the new dot32_crop2.dat file, though a Windows BASIC binary data file isn't all that useful to a non-programer with a Mac. It was sort of like when the PayPal page came up in Russian but in that case I just hit the translate button and it all made sense. Hey, that gives me an idea, maybe you could translate your focus pixel files into ascii? I can share with you the one that I built row by row on a spreadsheet in my bitbucket download area (https://bitbucket.org/daniel_fort/magic-lantern/downloads), it is in dcraw ".badpixels" format. There's also one here (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/22843507/MagicLantern/pixCoord_threshold2068.txt) that was published by foorgol, the developer of PinkDotRemover tool 650D and another one on bitbucket by maxotics (https://bitbucket.org/maxotics/focuspixelfixer/src/016f599a8c708fd0762bfac5cd13a15bbe3ef7ff/FocusPixelAddresses.cs?at=master&fileviewer=file-view-default) who was working on FocusPixelFixer for Windows.

Yes, there have been several attempts at this but you are taking it to a whole new level. Since you seem to be open to suggestions, here's one for the "Remove focus dots" feature. To look into the metadata of mlv files you can use "mlv_dump -mv [mlv_filename]" but what am I saying, you obviously know how to extract the metadata which includes the camera model, image size, crop and pan information so why not automatically select the correct dot data file and settings to use? To the user it would seem like the focus pixel issue isn't even an issue. Of course you should leave a way for users to override the auto settings at least until you have perfected it.

Just my 2₽.

Thank you so much.

I see you have a question about the dcraw ".badpixels" file format. Basically the last number is the date that pixel was mapped. It was meant to map out a few "stuck" pixels but it worked quite well on the 6,000+ focus pixels that I have found so far.

This is from the dcraw developer:

Code: [Select]
# .badpixels file for my Canon PowerShot G2, serial no. 4624504380
# dcraw will use this file if run in the same directory, or in any
# subdirectory.


# Format is: pixel column, pixel row, UNIX time of death

# This pixel went bad between August 1 and 4, 2002
 962   91 1028350000
# This pixel went bad between January 9 and 30, 2003
 902  877 1043000000

# These are only visible in low light, so I haven't dated them:
 621  943 0
1285 1067 0
1286 1067 0

You probably aren't using dcraw but but you might consider adding a feature so that users can map out a few bad pixels. Or maybe some dust that landed on the sensor?

Thanks, removing focus pixels on 700D crop mode is working great

However the copy paste settings feature does not work anymore, I don't know what causing it.
First I change a couple of settings on clip A, then i go to media que (q) copy settings on clip A.
Then select clip B and paste, but when I click paste the paste window won't show up.

Hi again
Ive been searching for the paste options box for an hour now, still didn't find it.
But I've noticed a few things maybe that will help

When I copy from A a setting and paste on B clip and then hit ENTER the focus dots do get removed
So it apears the paste options box is working but just not visible . Now I can only use the default values of the paste settings box
Also the settings are not showing up for me either (ctrl+s)
This bug started occurring when I started using build 1908
Now when I start older versions the box is still invisible

I think something is wrong with my windows 10 which is weird because all software (I have a lot)  are working fine except MLVP.

@AWPStar
I've found the cause on why the paste option box is invisible.

I ran MLVP in administrator mode (before I didn't) this way windows 10 forgets where the windows are located and they go back to default position. (like you run mlvp for first time)
So the paste option box appears again and it worked fine.

But apparently paste box is not on top of other windows so it got hidden somehow in the edge of MLVP
Can you make a reset windows button or make the paste box on top of other windows, just like the media que?

Sorry if my explanation is a bit confusing, here's a video:
I hope you can understand the problem

@AWPStar
A small issue with v1931.  There are two window expand buttons both of which will expand the MLVP window to full screen on the primary monitor.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/xnhsvzza37gpcjl/MLVP_Screen_minmax_buttons.JPG?dl=0

Also, a reminder that the application is not supporting multiple monitors correctly. It needs to keep track of which monitor that its window is on and treat that as its active monitor.

Lastly a suggestion for a post beta enhancement:
Full support for Full Resolution Silent Picture (FRSP) MLVP files.  A 19 frame sample file is available at the following link:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/vjj2bg5e96fmobn/54820000_Gravillia_FRSP_TL.MLV?dl=0

Interestingly MLVP does open the file and appears to already support it however the performance was really bad (slow). I think the sheer frame size is main culprit.

Cheers... Otto

I have problems again to open the file with the 7D.
The last file I sent, I can't open it yet, but after that I created new videos, and yes I can open.
Two days ago I created another video and the problem appears again, now I can't open new video, old videos yes I can.

any idea ?

build1944:
Correct camera and lens in CDNG, great!!!
But ... I've noticed that with ACR only "Embedded" camera profile brings adequate color rendition. Probably due to WhiteLevel tweaks you made, camera tag leads ACR to misinterpret colors. You'd rather give a choice of WhiteLevel value to write to CDNG and write something unique to your software to camera tag with your WhiteLevel value.

Hi @AWPStar
I've noticed MLVP most of the time does not render the audio, only the dngs but it didn't work in other codecs either.
Can you make an option render .wav only? So I don't have to re-render everything.
Thanks,
Nelson

Hi there AWPStar,

Firstly wanted to say Amazing and stellar work with this program! I cannot thank you enough. The color correction and dot removal tools are invaluable!

I was curious however if dual iso support can be added to the feautures as that would really be the answer to all my prayers as it is a difficult and tedius process currently and would really round off this program I feel.

Just a query.
Keep up the awesome work.

Will be donating when I have some funds come in.

Wow, you make it possible to edit DNG tags this way... I'm not shure does it useful though, but better to have than not :)
Some more remarks:
1. Something wrong with timecode and (probably as a consequence) no auto audio sync in Resolve.
raw2cdng timecode: 10:08:19.00, 10:08:19.01 ... 10:08:19.28 10:08:20.00
Frame rate 29.97
mlvP timecode: 00:00:00.00, 00:00:00.01, ... 00:00:00.28, 00:00:00.29, 00:00:01.00
Frame rate 29.969
No real time- no multicam sync for sure, but that extra 29 frame - I don't know what is correct.
2.WB still far from real. Your DNGs don't have any CameraCalibration tags - may be it's the source. I'm not a spec here, just what I noticed comparing files from several converters.
3. Exposure time, F number, ISO, Focal Length, Serial Number - all of these...
Glad to help you make  the best tool :)

Hi AWPStar how is dual iso going?

Just thought I'd fill you in on a couple of items that might help. cr2hdr seg faults every once in a while during the horizontal stripe fix process. Horizontal stripe fix is on by default on cr2hdr but it can be turned off with the --no-stripe-fix option. MLVFS doesn't have this problem thought it also doesn't have an option to turn horizontal stripe fix on/off. You are probably going to write your own code for dual iso but I thought I'd point this out in case you are looking at the source code for these programs. The other thing is that it looks like removing the focus pixels on dual iso is possible. I've been testing a new Mac workflow Danne is developing and dcraw was able to remove the focus pixels. It was a surprise to me because I tried doing in dcraw a few weeks ago and it wouldn't work for me--guess Danne has the magic touch.

In any case, here's dual iso with and without focus pixels.

http://magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=16054.msg157589#msg157589

By the way, I haven't done anything with your focus pixel files yet but I like that you mapped 0,0 in the center instead of the top left corner like dcraw. Oh, and you were probably wondering what that 3rd number in the dcraw ".badpixel" format is for--that's to put in the date that the "bad" pixel was discovered. It was originally designed to fix dead, hot, stuck sensor pixels.

There is an issue where, if you make a preset with a blank name(on accident? or invalid name?) it creates a file with only an extension ".pst1" and then will display a blank entry in the presets menu, but also will cause any new presets even if they're named correctly, to be blank as well

there is another issue with setting default output directory to a path with '[' or ']' in it. 'D:\OFFLOADS\[2015.11.07]Technica' would be truncated to 'D:\OFFLOADS\[2015.11.07' after restarting mlvproducer and checking the settings, I suspect this has something to do with how the settings.dat stores configuration using [] as delimiters

Also I can't seem to get the export and import queue to work, it saves a 2.24mb file regardless of how many i have in the queue and claims to be an unknown format on import

edit: I see  that Prores 444 FAST actually outputs 422 according to media player classic at around 250 MBps

what exactly is the difference between Prores fast and non fast?

edit:
I sought after x264 10-bit output support as it tends to be more efficient than 8-bit output with the same source, is of higher quality, and it handles gradients without needing to dither.
I discovered that 8-bit or 10-bit output depends on the specific build of ffmpeg.exe which can only output one or the other.  Here are builds with ffmpeg that use the 10-bit x264 https://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/blog/?p=435 (i just replaced the old ffmpeg.exe that's alongside mlvproducer)

I prefer x264 over prores or dnxhd since they have a set compression rate and aren't that efficient at their bitrates. (https://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=2270)
(https://video.stackexchange.com/questions/13164/encoding-422-in-10-bit-with-libx264)  (http://x264.nl/x264/10bit_02-ateme-why_does_10bit_save_bandwidth.pdf)
(http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/111886/prores-444-output-using-ffmpeg)
Though there seems to be some issues with adobe premiere pro cs6 or after effects in importing any x264 encoded source besides 420
edit:
Since I can't seem to get them to work in ppro or ae, I opted for prores444 but with reduced bitrate, currently it's being encoded with a qscale of 0 for lossless by default in MLVProducer, but that produces 250+ mbps which is a little too much as I'm sharing these "masters" I discovered where I could set the qscale 9 by editing the parameters MLVProducer sends to FFMPEG http://i.imgur.com/x9aBdO4.png which allows around 142 mbps instead

just to note, from what i read, i think theoretically changing the qscale which the prores_ks encoder allows, may make the output video technically not compliant with the rates apple set for prores which i read has the possibility to cause issues with anything decoding it, but it seems to work fine for me in after effects

I have some suggestions for future development, but I will keep it to myself for now as a know you first want to make it stable with current features.

One feature that I cant see is working properly is "Remove Vertical Stripes", at least not om my clips taken with 7d. Here is a short clip of a white wall taken with iso 6400 while dimming the light  : http://1drv.ms/1RxQRtW (http://1drv.ms/1RxQRtW)

@AWPStar ...... Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thank you for your efforts in developing MLVP this year. It really is an excellent product that gets better with each release.

Just an fyi.. I was trialling the v1944 alpha build and came across a issue with the saved presets that needs to be addressed as follows:

Save Preset under the "Edit, "Maze" and "Correction" results in preset files [name].prst1, [name].prst2 and [name].prst3 being created in MLVP/data/presets folder as expected.

Saved presets are listed under the "Edit" and "Correction" menu only. Presets saved under the "Maze" menu are not listed and there is no alternate "load preset" option available and as such the "Maze" saved presets are unusable.

Something else to consider:
I can see the sense in individual preset save modes however you might like to consider a save preset function (maybe under the "File" menu) that saves all of the settings for the active video clip to a single preset file.

Hi, new to the forum. I would like to thank you for all of the hard work that you have put into MVLP.  It is a fantastic program, and it produces beautiful results!

The only problem I have encountered, is that I can not seem to export as ProRes when I have "ProRes FAST 4:4:4" or "ProRes 4:2:2" selected in the settings menu: Default Codec. The video files created are AVCHD .mov files. If I select "TIFF" as the default codec, the resulting exported .mov files are ProRes 4:4:4.

I did some further testing, and it appears that the preferences for "Default Codec" aren't saving until the program has been quit and re-open. I tried "ProRes 4:4:4 FAST" again, set the prefs, quit and relaunched the program. This time I got a ProRes encoded video file after exporting, but it was ProRes 4:2:2.  Hope that helps.

Have a happy new year!

Just an idea that you can implement (shouldn't be hard to implement it)  :) ... Ability to import DNG sequence, make edits and export it (to ProRes or whatever). It would be helpful when I have a lot exported DNG files without original RAW/MLV files.
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows

It is possible*, but for dng-files without compression.

Current build is 1772.
1787 is hotfix. it's just 1 exe file and 1 dll file. You should copy them to main app folder.
Title: Cinema DNG won't playback in Davinci Resolve 12
Post by: jplew on January 02, 2016, 12:10:07 PM
Hello:
I'm using the alpha build 1944 and am having a problem playing back the output in Resolve 12. Instead of the DNG sequence playing back smoothly, I get a single static frame. Exporting the clip doesn't make a difference, it just stays as a freeze-frame. I believe it has something to do with the DNG metadata, specifically the clip's Start and End Timecode.

The reason I suspect this is because the exact same MLV file, when converted to DNG using MLV Mystic, plays back just fine. I would probably just stick with MLV Mystic, but the problem is it gives me all these ugly green artifacts in the clipped highlights. In the attached screenshots, you'll see that the MLV Mystic DNG starts at 00:00:00:00, while the MLV Producer DNG starts at 219:28:53:00.

MLV Mystic: http://imgur.com/YF9rodX (http://imgur.com/YF9rodX)
MLV Producer: http://imgur.com/Fuyu0aj (http://imgur.com/Fuyu0aj)

This may have absolutely nothing to do with MLV Producer, as I have the exact same problem with cDNG files produced out of raw2cdng, but maybe someone here can give me some pointers.
Thanks.

This is solution for raw2cdng (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=16411.msg159559#msg159559)
As MLVP didn't have output file mask, I just butch rename files manually.

Here a link for the CDNG that i get from MLVProducer

Im also struggling to make a batch of MLV files with the some configurations. Let me try to explain with by best inglish (that is not so good):

- I have 30 MLV files, that i need to put all in ProRes 444  and do some twicks like the white balance and some other adjustments, like exposure or some curves. How i can do this with MLVProducer? Do the twick in one file and all the other have the same adjustments? I have been in the queue windows but i have to do one by one =/ 

Thans for all =)

I'm not sure why this is happening. MLVP doesn't make changes into raw data(except focus dot removing).
Try to change exposure slider to ~+0.1.
Can you share mlv-file?

I played with the newest 1944 version (i didnt check with the older versions) and noticed, that when I export CNDG with vertical stripes correction ON highlights are more or less clear but shadows gets much of the vertical noise (makes the image almost unusable).  When stripes corr is OFF it is ok in shadows but obviously highlights are noisy. Here are two CDNGs - so please put them to ACR and check for yourself with sliders.
(5d3 1.1.3)

No vertical corr

If I understood this problem correctly...
Eache clip has its own output Folder settings. When you're swiching between clip - you're also swiching between their settings.
You can apply output folder to all clips(copy/paste settings in Render Queue).

Thanks you so much for the videos, it help a lot, thanks =)))   With +1 one the exposure don't solve the problem, with more yes but i need to lower the exposure and don't have that pink circle from the sun :/   After tomorrow i will put the MLV file for you to check and maybe you can see what is wrong, hope so =D

Can't wait for test the new version (FPN)  hope also you can have the ability to load any clip of dark video (15 seconds)  for subtract and get out all the noise =)   With my 7D normally i just work with 2 frame rates, with 5D you have full HD so its good that you can upload any kind of frame rate for making the subtracting thing with any camera/frame rate.

I extracted part of the clip as CDNGs using IN/OUT markers and checked "include audio". The app didnt generate any wav files. The same when i extracted full clip. Is it a known bug or maybe i did something wrong? (or maybe it is not ready yet?)

Are there any hot keys for IN/OUT points and next/provious clip? It would be very useful and real time/click saver with huge amount of files to process.

Post by: kgv5 on January 06, 2016, 12:50:50 AM
@AWPStar, thank you for the information.

Dont you think it would be better to remap ctrl+page up/down combinations to just say "K" and "L" keys? I am asking because with such a change it would be possible to keep one hand on the keyboard and the second one on the mouse, ctrl and page up/down are not close on a keyboard. It would be more "ergonomic" and more comfortable to use, doesnt matter when you have 5 clips but when you have 150 waving with your hand becames annoying.

Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: AWPStar on January 06, 2016, 01:36:32 AM
@kgv5
You're right. I will duplicate keys.

But, if you have a lot of clips it would be easier to press "Q" and find clip in Queue window.
Or even place "Group View" tool to the top of the workspace. ;)
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: kgv5 on January 06, 2016, 08:42:12 AM
Great, thanks :) :) Useful info about queue window and i will use it a lot.
When i have lot of clips i usually go through all of them, so play clip, set in/out for the best part, render, next, set in/out, render next and go on, like 100-150 times. One more useful feature would be an automatic file/folder name change if i am willing to render, lets say,  3 short parts out of the same, long clip - now you have to change the name by hand to avoid overwriting/render to the same folder (name would be the same).

Yes, i have checked how it looks in ACR and resolve and it is overwriting, single DNGs ale always the same, names always begins from 0 so you can screw your clip up by mistake.

Maybe you could add the feature (with on/off switch even) that every folder name has some unique number in the end (maybe time, but it shoud consist of the seconds also).

Post by: kgv5 on January 06, 2016, 11:46:15 AM
OK, i will send it to you in a moment.

Im still testing (v1944), i have to CONGRATULATE you on your SMART SHARPEN filter, really, its mindblowing - much much better than in resolve 12 !!! To get such a nice, sharp image without oversharpening look i had to render clip in resolve with 0 sharpeness and than add sharpening filter in premiere (value 15-30). And i still think your filter looks little bit better. Resolve sharpening looks more like your texture sharpen which alone doesnt give the best results, not natural looking image.
I used only smart sharpening with maximum value of 200 and it still looked great, no oversharpening look and no visible artifacts (at least in 100 percent view)!!! I think it is the best sharpening method for ML raw so far.

Playing with sliders wasnt very nice, they are not very accurate, entering value from the keyboard is not very "responsive", it is hard to say if the value was accepted, i had to click on other field to be sure. I think we need "reset" button next to every slider

Oh, i think i have found another bug - rendering to DNxHD - it seems it always render 24fps despite of setting. H264 was fine, i was able to render 25fps but dnxhd gave me 24fps.

Thank you, double click and the third mouse button works indeed, didnt figured this out myself.

Is it possible to add data levels for rendering? I have noticed, that your app probably renders dnxhd with 64-940 (but i am not sure, i just compared it by eye with resolve 12 output and looks very similar), is 0-1023 also possible? 0-1023 output (at least from resolve) looks nicer, more accurate with actual grading, 64-940 looks more washed out and less contrasty than in the grading window.

I ran a test, exporting resized footage in LogC as ProRes 444, and brought it into After Effects. Applied OCIO plugin, with ACES config. LogC input and RRT Rec709 output. Very pleasing results straight off the bat.

I get the following pop up error directly:
out of memory frame cache has been disabled.

@ibrahim
Program should work properly, but without Frame Caching.
It happens because of many technical reasons.

How do I disable the frame caching, I can't find it in the program?

Something that might be useful here.
I found out how to export HDR on the fly using a tblend filter called
Code: [Select]
-vf tblend=all_mode=average With this filter you,ll export a H264 HDR file or any other sequence (MLV/RAW shot in HDR) through FFmpeg straight to a ready to use merged file. Only this file will still keep the same frames per second.

@ibrahim
Frame Caching disables automatically.

@Danne
Wow! Thx!
It works and i can make the output option.
It blends frames, but it doesn't compensate motion.
I think it make sense in timelapses.

Yes, and also if filming in 50 or 60 fps. Looks great.
You could also check out the aligning function from the HUGIN project. It is time consuming but does wonders to the files.
Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: Danne on January 10, 2016, 03:52:21 AM
Here,s a pipe command which will yield 30 fps from 60 fps HDR. 25 fps from 50 fps and so on. Reason because the higher framereate the lesser ghosting. Then you "normalize" your footage back to wanted fps.
It has to be piped through another FFmpeg since halfening the file in first encode won,t yield good results using tblend. Here is my syntax

Quote
ffmpeg "$file" -vcodec prores_ks -pix_fmt yuv444p10 -vf "tblend=all_mode=average" -f matroska - | ~/Library/Services/MLP.workflow/Contents/ffmpeg -i -vcodec prores_ks -pix_fmt yuv444p10  -r $(echo $fps / 2 | bc -l) HDR_"$file"

This would be great to have HDR -ready to use clip- export. Having both HDR and DualISO modes - each of those modes could be very useful in different situations.

@AWPStar

I checked HDR with 50fps file, works good, only issue is  when i want to delete number "1" with backspace in frame step window (when the file is loaded), it gives "run-time error 13, type mismatch", workaround was not to clean the window but add "2" and than delete "1".

I exported two 25fps CDNGs sequences - dark and light.

Here is 50fps HDR clip from 5d3.

So, ffmpeg just taking out half frame rate?

@kgv5
Thx!

Yes, ditches half of the frames. But it works.

@AWPStar
It is a not big issue but I think it would be good to have a scroll bar in the queue window - after importing couple dozens of files it is hard to see and select them without expanding to full screen (and even with that i think it will not fit more than 120-140 at once).

I prefer to use right mouse button. So you can just slide down whole list.
3 reasons:
1. it is more accurate.
2. Workspace is free from unnecessary controls.
3. Fast access.


I returned to the old rendering system.
Now Color Space applyes before corrections and filters. So image can be lifted out of CS range.
To control that, you can use Highlight Clipping.
And Color Space range will be displayed at Histogram
(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fr62.imgup.net%2FCSRangec106.png&hash=4de183fc1658890791ba8f8ea9102a1c)

It will improve quality(less posterization), performance and should improve capability of color grading.

Ah, OK, and what about mouse wheel then? Could you add it also? It would be more intuitive i think.

HDR and dualISO implementations looks great after short testing (v2164 intel), really groundbraking :) :)

I must say this is an awesome app, AWPStar :D

I got a few questions though.

I'm still trying to figure out the ins and outs of the color space. For some reason I can't get the Canon Log C to look right when I use a Canon Log C to LOG LUT (from Impulz) on premiere. Also, is it just me or does the display on MLVP looks like it's lowered at least a stop or two lower than what is on camera? Also: What's the difference between visionLOG 1 and 2? I thought there's only 1?

For FPN: Am I right that we're supposed to profile the noise for each ISO? I made FPN profile for each ISO steps and if that was the case, is it possible to add an option to make it so that MLVP pick the correct ISO from the available profile?

ALso: Could you make it so that the Include Audio option can be enabled by default?

Also: I notice there's a color calibration option when you paste settings on the media queue. Is this for calibration targets? (How do I use this?)

Thanks for this awesome app!

Just doing so testing on the Cdng export with adjustments and notice the none on the adjustments are being applied to the Cdng & deflated DNG's
or is the Cdng just a passthou? from the MLV? if so it far to bight or gamma shift.
Below are so screenshots from my Win7pro , by the way I'm using the latest build ,  MLVP.test.build2164.AMD (yes I have a AMD CPU FX8350 OC to 4.9  ;D)

First one is from MLVProducer exported as Cdng 16bit  uncompressed

What I notice is the White levels are different MLVP=8755
and  MLVFS white level are 15000 . plus the Strip off set & "As shot as "
So is the that the issue of gamma shift or to bight.

But the adjustment are not applied thou ,
What I was hoping for was to do correction etc.... export as Cdng , then import in to Apple Compressor export as ProRes 4444XQ (Mac Only 16bit linear)
Or unless you can Call up different encoder like e.g. QT (Quicktimes) on Windows (has more flexibility to add Better QT Codec)
Specially on a MAC if you have the path in windows it may work with "wine" but not sure.
If not then exporting Cdng is the next best option , I could used tiff but 11-12 MB to Cdng 4MB well I like 4MB.

Besides that , MLVProducer has some amazing new features and it make that MLV file I tested look great it's usable now .
I'll put a link to my dropbox with all 3 dng's plus the Tiff & text files from ExifTool if you would like to look at.

To match images you can set exposure to ~+1.0, or set green correction to "Lift"

Сan you guarantee that FPN at all your footages will be the same? I doubt.
You should definitely take FPN sample at the same ISO, and i think, the same time.

This option for a spherical camera in vacuum. For some cameras, this can make the colors more natural.

That is absolutely great!
Thank you very much :) - much better workflow yet.

I have a newbe-question:

How can i settup "global settings"? Because when i open iE 20 clips shot with same lens and cameraconfigurations it would be great to set
all settings for all clips together. Greenchannel reconstructing, Demosaic, ColorSpace, Corrections and the outputpath- just everything.
Doing this via "groups" would be fine. So when all clips from that group have their "basicsetup" we could fineadjust each by each (when needed) in task mode.
Or am i missing something or doing something wrong ;)?

And- is it possible to export to lagartih-losless-codec? Or do you think that is not needed?

Title: Re: MLVProducer for Windows
Post by: AWPStar on January 12, 2016, 09:21:51 PM
@dafassi
my workflow:
1. Setup Input/Output settings. -> Copy to other clips
2. Switch to global editing mode(or Group mode)
3. Edit clips
4. Switch to Task mode
5. Finetune all clips


Just in case

Great thank you!
What im missing is that the settings for reconstruct/Linear/...  and the filter settings (specialy lut) are not handled in group- or global mode (as well as the output directory+compression settings).

Would it be good for someone else to have this included in Group/Global.

It would give just a little bit faster workfow than using copy and paste i think?

I´ve tryed the copy/paste-method ... my win7 64bit freezes completely when clicking on paste (the 2nd paste in the popup) :/

CPU AMDFX4100
16GB RAM
SSD HardDrive

let me know if you need any informations.

Its absolutely great that someone makes this possible :).

Thanks, AWPStar! I'll look into all these :D


Do you ahve ability to choose input color space in premiere?


Do you mean the lumetri thing on latest Premiere CC? I have that.

Btw, how do you make GroupView to show up on the top like in the video?

PS: Could you add CineStyle as one of the log conversions too? I know they put out a CineStyle to Rec709 LUT a while ago.

Running latest MLVP on OS X has never been easier than before. Especially for the exporting option and am digging the Settings scroll-down options from the top left of app.

Tested with Dual-ISO files from SL1/100D (to see how well the Remove Focus Dots works together with Dual-ISO footage in both non-crop and crop mode) which came out quite interesting (renders pretty quickly as well which is a plus) ... Still better than I expected but not yet perfect. Definitely a great work in progress so far!

Watch what happens when you DON'T shoot in crop-mode (RFP doesn't take in account for the entire frame) which is why it is recommended to shoot in crop-mode for those cameras affected by the furious Focus Pixels until further development by our dev's especially @dfort who is hard at work at making this more 'universal friendly' type of RFP for all of us at the end of the day. Kudos to you all!!!


@AWPStar ... Here are the original Dual-ISO files from above: https://mega.nz/#F!Sw8FybiC!gorbjiC1fwNJT8naH60-ag

Also will post results from the same test files after color-grading them since they came out in AlexaLogC (not sure if thats the best one for Dual-ISO) but this is the fun part of testing ... to see what works and what doesn't. Thanks again for your hard work on this!

Hey, DeafEyeJedi. How do you enable dualISO MLV? I can't seem to record dualISO on my 7D.

Post by: DeafEyeJedi on January 13, 2016, 05:55:27 AM
Sorry to break this to you but 7D is one of the few cameras that does NOT support Dual-ISO for video recording atm but currently does work for Photo only.

Im not sure how to do it with Premiere. Buy 3D-Luts should applies on a certain color space.

You can select "Group View" from the "Window" menu, and then move it to top.

@AWPStar

In MLVP.test.build2164.INTEL version I am able to browse and choose a colour LUT on the filters menu however the selected LUT does not get applied. Selected LUTs were either *.cube or *.3dl type.

Any chance of making the scrollbar for the scrollable tools a bit thicker/wider. It can be a bit of a challenge to pick up the slider or line up the pointer within the slide channel. More often than not I pick up the edge of the tools frame instead of the scrollbar.

Whilst on the tools, has no impact on the actual size/presentation of the tools themselves. Personally, I'm happy with the default sizes and don't there is a need to be able to stretch them. Maybe this is something that can be disabled. It might make the scrollable tools a little less hit or miss.

@AWPStar - In the middle of all those people making suggestions and offering advice and requesting additional features, please do never forget, that you have already given us a tremendous tool and the means to create astoundingly good video. The work you're doing is right up there, in line with the ML concept: Perfectionism, adaptability and useability. We must take our hats off and acknowledge the good work, you're doing. We know, that this fine tool is only going to become better and more efficient - and I thank you.

Yeah it crashed. It happened when rendering the queue.

Btw, it seems if I paste a setting to a video twice, it becomes purple-ish. Can anyone confirm?

And some MLVs just froze/crash the app. I can't seem to put my finger on as to why... I can't convert them using MLVP. Although, on one MLV, I found that it froze on the second frame. Cutting out that frame from rendering, allows it to render properly. Perhaps add an option to skip broken frame?

I've tried to open .MLV filmed with both 600d and 5d3 in both versions 2127 and 2164. In both builds the program crashes. Any idea why this is?
The footage is 5 seconds long and is a dual iso+ETTR footage.

Now the MLV producer is working. I am using build 2164_intel. I had to put the .MLV fil and its metadata in the same directory as that of the build.

What am I supposed to select to convert dual iso mlv to processed cDNGs?

That's the odd thing. THere is no Dual ISO under FPN in my application to select. I even tried to find it in build 1944 and it is the same. The Dua ISO button does not exist.

Ok, hope that more progress will be made to boost the processing  ;)

Awesome update! Thanks, AWPStar!

Btw it seems the filter settings (sharpen, local contrast etc) cannot be copy pasted across clips, or is there some options I missed?

Also: Is it possible to make it so that MLVProducer remembers all the settings used between sessions, like having a default profile with all the custom settings set, so that every time we import a footage, it will set all possible settings to that? Lightroom has this ability to set everything as default profile and it's really useful to adopt to individual workflows.

I just checked the code.
"Detail Sharpen" and "Smart Sharpen" are broken.
But copying of "local contrast" should work fine.

I am playing with HDR feature in rev.2183 alpha intel and it seems that there is a problem with frame step option. I am trying to divide hdr 48fps footage and just cant, it gives me folder with both dark and light frames. There was no such problem in rev.2127.
Feature request: could you implement such a feature that when you choose HDR processing full frame rate or half frame rate but you have CDNG export selected it just automatically creates two folders with odd and even frames (so dark and light). Now you have to do it by hand. Thanks
Title: Re: MLVProducer
Post by: AWPStar on January 23, 2016, 01:04:31 AM
@kgv5
To explain how it works.
HDR option just blends nearest frames. So in that case you should always use step = 1.
When you set step > 1, it renders frames with step you choose.
So if you set step=2 and HDR blending it will blend dark frame with dark frame or white frame with white frame. It doesn't make sense.

HDR option doesn't work with DNG-files.
Title: Re: MLVProducer
Post by: kgv5 on January 23, 2016, 07:49:49 AM
@AWPStar

Sorry, i should have explained this better: what i mean is i was thinking about the feature which would be helpful with "external" hdr processing like in after effects where you need two separate streams- dark and light. Your processing inside the app is realy great for most cases but having two separate CDNGs folders give ability to add more of the effect by using shadows and highlights recovery in ACR (or resolve) to make dark frames darker and light- lighter separatelly. And i have noticed that i couldnt render with frame step 2 in the newest version- i was getting all the frames in the folder. I was able to do what i am talking about with your previous version (the one without hdr full/half button, i will try to post some examples. Thanks
Title: Re: MLVProducer
Post by: AWPStar on January 23, 2016, 08:11:57 AM

is there a way to autowhitebalance multiple files at once?
well, no.

You can use auto white balance option (https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fm23.imgup.net%2Fawbc0db.png&hash=e04b3cae47c1f8da4fb87ce29defd6e6)
but every file should be opened to apply this.

p.s. soon, i will post new version.
p.p.s. downloading Premiere to see how to fix dng problem.
just tested. cdng works perfectly in premiere CC 2015

Hi,

I tried to convert .MLV -> DNG files with the latest intel build. The conversion works, and if I open the files in photoshop they look fine, but when I import them in Davinci Resolve the video looks like a TV that lost its signal. It's just a noise pattern.

The starting frame is up at 5000 something, and the ending frame is 5401 (the clip is 401 frames long). That might be the problem? If you want I can attach more info.

Damn! It works. And the audio is synced, but not linked in Davinci Resolve. I can now record, dual iso, 1920x1080, 23.9~ fps.

Well i'll be damned. Where do I donate?

Nice work! Great tool! Congrats!

I'm looking for a better workflow with magiclantern raw and this tools could improve a lot the workflow.
I was reading about visionlog and I found this nice workflow in their web
http://www.hackermovies.com/hackermovies-magic-lantern-raw-workflow-guide (http://www.hackermovies.com/hackermovies-magic-lantern-raw-workflow-guide)

I think could be simplified a lot with MLVProducer.
This workflow consist in process raw with their profile, Visionlog, that preserves full range dymanic and colors. There's one for every Canon camera. And output to work with a Prores 4444 or similiar video (Avid DnxHD and Grass Valley Canopus HQ(X)) behind, AFX, Premiere, etc.
Then you come back the colors from de Log image in Resolve or maybe works too in Lumetri plugin and finally you can colorise.

I can see there's two visionlog profiles at MLVProducer, they are the same I'm talking to? Or similar?
I'm a little lost with this tool. Would be wonderful to find the way to work with this workflow on this tool!

Thank you!

It will take some time to read this text. But i'll do it.:)
I actually not sure about these visionlog profiles.

You can also use VisionLog 3dLut with BMDFilm

Btw, I've been testing FPN with profiles from different session, even days apart and they apply flawlessly. Maybe it would be nice if the app can match ISO and frame sizes?

I also got black videos when I open my 7D MLVs. It used to work before. Here's some log:

Only exposure, fpn, dots removing and vertical stripes removing can affect on dng.

I got mismatched patterns with different conditions.

About time, i'm working on new algorithm. :D

Probably this bag will be eliminated in new version.

Can you cut this new mlv with mlv_dump and sent to me. Or full file if you can.

Tried it out! Nice error log. Easy to post to the forums. I'm trying to process a HUGE file. ~130GB

What I mean with the synced audio is just that the audio is exported and is easily imported into Davinci Resolve for editing.

Post by: Kharak on February 24, 2016, 12:46:45 PM
How is the Noise Reduction performed?

Is it an equal noise reduction in the RGB Channels or is it tuned to the different channels, because I have found out that the Noise in the Green Channel is usually about 40% less than the Blue and Red. I assume that is because the Bayer Pattern contains about 1/3 more of Green pixels than Red and Blue. And that Green is a brighter colour therefore taking in more Photons than the Blue and Red. Therefore I always lower noise reduction in the Green channel with about 40% to not smear details.

The Blue channel contains about 10-15% more noise than the Red channel.

And is the noise reduction performed over the entire Luminance of the Image, because in my noise profiles I have made, I have found out that doing Spatial and Temporal noise reduction on Luminance over 50% will eliminate/smear details.

Just something for your Consideration.

Just to be clear, I am not talking about the Stripe Correction, only noise.
Title: Re: MLVProducer
Post by: AWPStar on February 24, 2016, 11:32:11 PM
@Kharak
Well yes, mlvp is processing noise in channels separately.

I think you're right. I can apply reduction to the green channel with less intensity. it will cause better result.

Thank you!

look on start if theres a new version and ask. automatic updates are contraproductive. and finally you re not able to revert, because the older version will update itself.. loop of death.

(is there a coder out there, who guarantees, new version will have less bugs? nope? :))
&
today on twitter: automatic updates are the golden keys for backdoors. just pack your virus/malware into a "new version" (or infect the new version with a virus) and let spread it by the "automatic update"

So - NOPE, sounds not like a good idea.
Title: Re: MLVProducer
Post by: Kharak on February 29, 2016, 02:49:15 PM
For me personally, I never have anything Auto-Update as sometimes newer version fuck up with older projects and make incompatibility.

Also on a more personal note I don't like any program auto-update for me as I want to be in control of what is going on and if I need it.

"if it ain't broke, don't fix it

But definitely would be nice with a Pop-up saying there is a new version available with Release Notes on new features and bug fixes, and as always I like it when it is told exactly what kind of bug fixes.. Nothing is as depressing as reading release notes from an update and it just says "Bug fixes"..

Is anyone having a problem exporting Cinema_DNG files at 23.976 FPS? It comes out as 23.98 for me. A look at clip properties in Premier confirms this. If I insert it into a timeline set to 23.976 FPS it loses frames. I tried setting it manually at 23.972 just as an experiment and it comes out at 23.97 instead.  I'm not really sure how to resolve this.

Hi,
I think MLVProducer is discarding timecode track of MLV files. Every file I convert starts from 00:00:00:00 timecode. Timecode is essential track to match back originals.

Using 2214 Alpha INTEL version.
Title: Re: MLVProducer
Post by: Ottoga on March 06, 2016, 03:43:02 AM
@mohanohi

Maybe try a naming convention like MLVname_InFrameNR_OutFrameNR eg: M08-1422_150_249. This will easily let you reference back to your original.

@AWPStar, maybe an option to append these to the file name at render time?

Need Progress , here  (https://www.dropbox.com/s/utb5b9hvfzuxr52/M19-2200.MLV?dl=0) a dual ISO MLV from my 5D2 that you can use or what ever to need to do for support on your tool.
Or if that file is too big to download 700MB then  here (https://www.dropbox.com/s/qnzst1571q766pu/Non_process_M13-2146.MLV.frame_000000.dng?dl=0) is a Cdng unprocess dual ISO frame

Your Welcome  , If those don't work out or you need different dual ISO range samples let know .
 I had problems with the MLV file 200/1600 as cr2hdr would not convert all frames but mlvfs could .
So you may have issue's with it  , the Cdng is 100/800 was ok with all converters .

Hi AWPStar

I'm currently using build mlvp.alpha.build2253.INTEL on windows 10
My antivirus is flagging MLVProducer as an virus (trojan) could you fix this? I'm using avira antivirus.

Also when I exort to cinemaDNG in this build i cannot play them in Premiere pro, it says unsupported. But it used to work in older versions (of MLVP)
In Davinci Resolve 12 when I try to open CDNG from MLVP it crashes. It also used to work in Resolve (11 and 12)
I have found a solution but it is a lot of work:
I simply import the CDNG from MLVP into Adobe camera raw converter (ACR) and convert them, then it plays just fine in resolve and premiere. But it is a ton of work, can you fix this or do you know how to automate this process, of replacing the MLVP-CDNGs with DNG from ACR.

Thanks

Not sure why this is happening. i'll try to figure it out.

It should work. What version of Premiere do you use? Can you send couple of frames(cDNG)?

I've been trying out MLVP the past couple of days and I'm very impressed with the workflow.

I have encountered an issue. I'm using 700D footage with movie crop enabled. I select 'remove focus dots' and choose the pattern 'Pattern Crop (700D)'. Most of the focus dots disappear but a few rows of dots remain at the top of the frame and a few at the bottom of the frame. The frame size is 1280x720. Build 2253.

Maybe someone else noticed earlier in this thread but i get different colors from MLVProducer than MLVRawViewer. I would really use producer but the colors are dull and missing some red's from the image. Yes i tried "calibrated color" tried all of the log profiles, saturation boost, correct exposure, but there is some problem with the colormanagement.

The RawViewer gives me the colors i want but it has less options and its slower

What am i doing wrong?

(5D2 both raw_rec and mlv gives me the same results)

Post by: NelsonSigmundoFilms on May 11, 2016, 09:03:57 AM
Hi AWPStar,

I have found a solution on why Resolve was crashing with MLVP CDNG and Premiere not opening them.

First, The default frame rate goes to 23.973 not 23.976. Resolve and Premiere can't handle 23.973 frame rate.
Second I switched to TPDM (the second last one in the list) now it plays back just fine both in Resolve and Premiere. The last debayer option (it says best) makes resolve crash and Premiere won't open.

Also I've gone back to an older version (2183 INTEL) because the newer version is crashing all the time.
These are the settings I use and work fine in Resolve and Premiere: Reconstruct, TPDM, AdobeRGB, Remove focus dots, CinemaDNG, Include Audio, File name (does not end with a number)

One last note: MLVP does not seem to remember my preferences when I restart the software, can you fix this?


Thanks,

-Nelson

Hi AWPStar

Here is a 700D video with movie crop:

"Pattern Crop (700D)" only removes the focus dots in the middle of the frame. Several rows of dots remain at the top and bottom of the frame.

What do you think about implementing losslessly compressed DNGs support which comes from SlimRaw app?
I (and I think many other people) started using slimraw some time ago and i think its great, copying and lossesly compressing 2:1 takes almost the same time as just copying. So after the process we have folders with DNGs, ACR and resolve have no problem with reading these and it seems they do it with the same speed as normal DNGs. I will provide you with some samples when i get back home. Cheers

I noticed that DaVinci Resolve doesn't recognize the sound file belonging to the sequence when exporting to cDNG which results in sound having to be linked manually. When using MLVFS, that works. It's probably just a matter of correct naming of the sound file. I also noticed that the sound is exported twice, once in the sequence subfolder and once in the parent folder.

Will it keep the great quailty of the raw video? how much better than H264 straight from the camera would it be? (I'm using a 650D)

I did have some confusion re: the SnapShot function re: how to clear/close it again but I figured it out. Not sure what its purpose is though as, apart from being able to stretch it to full screen I can't see that anything else can be done with it. Can you enlighten me on its purpose please.

Your Settings for CDNG Conversion?

Love this product.  I use exclusively to convert my MLV files from my 5d2 to CinemaDNG for editing/grading in Resolve.  Am curious what MLVP settings make most sense for this purpose.

Since MLVP is converting to another raw format, I assume many of the image adjustments simply do NOT affect the CDNG image that is rendered.  Correct?

I use the Hot Pixel fix but nothing else.

Specifically, I understand that only Hot Pixel, Vertical Stripes, exposure and black level are the settings that will affect the rendered CDNG image.

Hi AWPStar, in another thread I was asking about dark frame subtraction:

http://magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=13152.msg171293#msg171293

However, although I can use MLVProducer to generate the fixed noise pattern, and although it looks correct in the preview window, when I export to DNG the results are not consistent with what I see in the preview window. In the example DNGs you uploaded in the linked post, I took them in to ACR and applied +5 exposure to see what's happening in the shadows and in fact the FPN reduced version just seems to have a slightly different exposure and hue.

Also as you can see in this picture, when I select any LUT with LOG or CLogC I get horrible bands going across areas of highlights and shadows :'(

This problem has never occurred in the previous builds.

.....REC 709 with no LUT does not have this problem at all, it only occurs with flat profiles.

Hi, whyfy!

I removed noise removal options. they have a poor result.
i have to rework 3DLUT Filter. It's some kind of interpolation bug.

Hi AWPStar

I notice MLVP is struggling with large files.
I have a 59GB .MLV file when I import it in MLVP it is really slow. MLVP only using 9% CPU and 0.1MBS read on SSD (read from windows task manager)
Hardware is not an issue. i7-4771 16 GB RAM MLV files are on 1TB Samsung SSD rougly 450 MB/S read/write
Anything I can do to make this faster? I'm in kinda a hurry

Thanks

Hi  :)

I´m having problem converting files bigger than one minute, has to to with 4gb file split?
I use 50D, how to avoid problems with that?

I try to convert using mlvproducer, but the encoded file doesnt work past, say.. 1:18 minutes (bugs or freezes video).

mlvrawviewer can convert the entire video, and the file playback is ok.

Hi, in the latest version of MLVP when I resize video on output, it saves camera-recorded size. For example I record MLV video on my EOS M in 1728x434 (2,39:1 and stretch by 1,62x). In MLVP I try to resize my footage to 2048x858 (scale 3x5 and output resolution 2048x858). But in final file after render size is 1728x434. Thanks)

Love the software, thanks much.

Shooting ML raw video on a Canon 5d2.   Convert my MLV files to CDNG which I import into DaVinci Resolve.  When I shoot ML with audio, I select the audio setting in MLVProducer.  For some reason, I am getting 2 copies of each audio (wav) file when I convert. 

Am I missing a setting somewhere?

I love this app too, really quick at rendering and converting my files and I had better success so far than with other converters such as raw2cdng on pc.
But is there or would be a way to add the metadata of the camera to the cdng's, such as lens, wb and setting used? That would be great.

Also, any other settings than black levels can be applied before converting to cdngs?

Thank again for the good work!

Here's a quick test with your latest MLVP.alpha.build2679 (Thanks for the update!) with a Dual-ISO footage shot from SL1/100D in ISO 100/800 while running Wine (Wineskin-2.6.2) on OS X Sierra 10.12.1 and here are the results...


Notice the flickering in Final Output (at end of clip) which reminds me of how it looks as if I were to fiddle with the highlights sliders and whatnot. Is this due to the early stages of Dual-ISO algorithm that you supposedly came up with (do you have the source code for this particular feature) if you don't mind me asking?
Title: Re: MLVProducer
Post by: AWPStar on November 02, 2016, 11:42:05 AM
Thank you for testing!
"My" dual-iso still has many problems. Yes, this is my early algorithm. Just prototype.
I can share source but i won't (for now). Now it looks like garbage. No formatting, no comments, etc.

Title: Re: MLVProducer

Well, it's not. 2.6 fps.
Title: MLVProducer
Post by: DeafEyeJedi on November 03, 2016, 07:34:35 AM
Well 2.6 is still pretty good for rendering speeds. Especially for Dual-ISO. What's even more remarkable is the fact that I can actually see the final results in literally realtime during playback.

Let alone play with logs and fiddle with the sliders is just so much fun. I have a lot of faith with your work. Please keep it up and hopefully once you share the sources which can help other dev's to make use of your stuff.

However, I came across something odd when trying to export as cDNG's and nothing spits out in the output folder -- is this normal or am I looking at the wrong destination? How do I go about for this?

Anyone else still having trouble finding their way into the main disk (I have two SSD's in my MBP) and it seems rather difficult to find them and when I click on Z: C: or D: drives it just shows blank and I don't even know if they are actually my drives?

Just did some tests with dual iso on the 5D mk III.

I did not find any bigs problems, it work well.

Just saw some strange colored artifacts in the top border of image.
Not a real problem, i can resize (arround 10 pixels) a bit my footage and it's gone.

Thanks you for these news upgrades @AWPStar !

Work with dual iso footage is become more easy now.

Damn, every time I come across a new thread on this forum there is another incredible piece of Magic Lantern software! You folks are out of control.

I am offering a humble donation. I hope everyone is donating to this amazing project!

A few things:

- the download links on the first post are reversed re: INTEL vs. AMD

- I tried running MLVP in a windows XP VM (I'm on Linux usually) -- the file dialog that opens MLV files can access network drives, but the file dialog that sets the output folder can not. (In this case the 'Network Drive' is actually the mapped share drive for my VM).

- when running in the VM, it would hang when I tried to render the output. I'm sure this is low on the list of bugs, but just wanted to mention it in case it was useful. (I can also use my normal Win 8.1 install and that works fine.)

- I tried running it in Wine in Linux; first I did "winetricks vb6run", then I did:
  wine "z:\path\to\mlvproducer\MLVProducer.exe"
  ...but when i try to set the output directory, it crashes. Also the "include audio' and related radio buttons aren't present in that window. (Just reporting all this in case it's interesting.) This is the error on the crash:

Code: [Select]
err:ole:apartment_getclassobject DllGetClassObject returned error 0x80004002
err:ole:create_server class {172bddf8-ceea-11d1-8b05-00600806d9b6} not registered
err:ole:CoGetClassObject no class object {172bddf8-ceea-11d1-8b05-00600806d9b6} could be created for context 0x15

- I had some trouble with hot pixel removal, but I'll keep reading up on the forum here and see if I can figure it out

- 16bit TIFF export would be cool?

Thanks for the great software!

Wow, thanks! Let me know if I can provide any other info.

I should also say that it says "Run-time error '445': Object doesn't support this action" when I try to set the folder.

And, darn: I just ran it again via wine, and played around, but never tried to set the output folder (so there was no crash), and the exact same three lines came on stdout, so I think those log lines are not in fact related to the folder setting crash (directly, anyway)... let me know if there's a debug mode or something I can run it with.

One way to trigger the three log lines is to open the settings dialog; I have definitely seen it without opening the settings, though, but I can't find a way now besides the settings menu...

I also saw another wine error line apparently indicating that I need to install the winbind package on my system, so I did that as well. (Only mentioning for any others who are running via wine in linux.)

It was an MLV. I zoomed in on a couple hot pixels with the "+" activated, and the box would turn green, and I would click, but nothing would happen. Then I rendered and the hot pixels were still present. There is a good chance that I'm doing something wrong, because I'm not even sure how it's supposed to work, which is why I think I should probably read a little more first... :-)

Hello --

So, I'm learning a bit more about FPN. Here's my current issue -- FPN works great. Focus-pixel removal works great. But they seem to combine strangely?

I found this because I'm doing some custom video effect stuff that requires low-noise images because it does a lot of addition of frames, so if there is noise present it adds up and becomes visible. I noticed that a series of still raw images from the camera work fine, but I've been trying to use MLV video as an alternative route, and it doesn't work (yet!).

If I build a FPN profile and enable it, the noise drops significantly. But if Focus-pixel removal is also enabled, it also causes a bunch of red hot pixels to be created. I then enable the hot pixel removal, and that removes the hot pixels but it seems to add a bit of gray noise as well, as shown at the end of the gif below. (When I say "hot" here, I don't mean truly hot, just hot when I sum a lot of frames.)

Is this normal/expected, or is it some kind of error in the order of operations being done?

For example, it seems like the FPN also includes the focus pixels, so if I'm using both perhaps there is a math error when the FPN subtracts focus pixels that were already removed, which in turn causes the hot red pixels?

Here is an animated gif that shows the effect. I'm making the issue visible by turning up the gamma correction. Perhaps increasing the gamma is ruining the value of my experiment, but I do see the same scenario when I run them through my process (hot red pixels when I use FPN and use remove-focus-pixels but don't remove hot pixels), so I'm reasonably suspicious that it's related?

I suppose I could use MLVP to remove the focus pixels, and then do my own dark frame subtraction in processing (BTW -- it'd be great if there was a way to export the computed FPN frame -- if it didn't include the focus pixel removal also, that is.)

Thanks for looking at it! And let me know if I'm misunderstanding anything, or if a demo MLV would be useful.

...update on the above: I have done this and it works well: I do focus-pixel removal in MLVP, but no other processing. Then I have custom code that computes an average dark frame and subtracts it during my post-processing, and it works very well. So perhaps that indicates that something could be changed in MLVP in terms of how the FPN is applied?

Thanks for asking -- I'd normally be eager to share but in the short term I'll have to keep quiet about it. It's nothing that would impress serious coders/visual FX people, but i'm working on a project with it and would like to do that first. :-) The dark frame part of it is dead simple (just a straight average) and probably no different than MLVP, except that it works after the focus pixel removal on the frames cleaned up by MLVP... something that is important in my workflow but probably unimportant for most use cases. Short version: probably nothing useful to anyone, but I'll share when I can. :-)

Sure!

Here is the MLV (213MB): http://lacinato.com/pub/M11-1826.MLV  update: smaller .zip version (126MB): http://lacinato.com/pub/mlv.zip
Here is the .fpn: http://lacinato.com/pub/demonoise.fpn

I made the fpn from the last few seconds of the video (during which I covered the lens with a card).

In MLVP, if I set the output space to sRGB and gamma correction to 0.52, I note that:

- enabling only focus dot removal removes focus dots
- enabling only FPN removes focus dots and removes some noise
- enabling focus dot removal and FPN removal removes focus dots, removes some noise, and adds some hot pixels
- enabling focus dot removal and FPN removal and enabling "remove hot pixels" removes focus dots, removes some FPN noise, removes the hot pixels, and adds some noise

This was taken with a 100D (Rebel SL1) and the kit 18-35 lens in a dark-ish room at f3.5 and ISO 100.

Thanks! Let me know if I can provide anything else.

The new combined crop_rec/mv720 focus pixel map can replace the previous EOSM mv720 map file. It is only for the EOSM for now. This is working great in MLVFS so I suppose it should work for MLVProducer too.

Multi-bits version is coming soon.

Will be extremely intuitive for your app to determine which bit depth is each MLV/RAW files. How exactly are you achieving this or to make it readable?
Title: Re: MLVProducer
Post by: AWPStar on December 22, 2016, 01:43:59 AM
@DeafEyeJedi
well, it is easy. I can get bit depth from RAW(raw_info) or MLV(RAWI) header.



then i convert any bits file to 16 bit
Code: [Select]
    Dim Sub1 As Long = 16 - BitDepth
    Dim Shr1 As Long = 16 + Sub1
    Dim devand As Long = ( 2 ^ BitDepth) - 1
   
    j = 0
    k = 0
    For n As Integer = 0 To dlen - 1
        i = j Shr 4
        v = (((src[i] Shl 16 + src[i + 1]) Shl (k AND &b1111)) Shr Shr1) AND devand
        dstt[n] = v
        k -= Sub1
        j += BitDepth
    Next

@AWPStar
Thanks for your support to ML and for this 10/12bit quick support.  Your app has come a long way and I use it to quickly render mov for non critical applications in batch mode.  I have learned to use presets and to re-use them making the process very fast for a quick edit.  My regular process is to use ACR to edit the dng and then to import them into a video editor; this method gives me the best results but it is time consuming.

I tested the new 10/12 bit process to render in "DNxHD 1080" and found a couple of additional issues in :
Running on windows 7 64 bit.


1. Render task is not available in File Menu... Only Reder Queue.  Render Task button on Output works as always.
2. I cannot render below 24 fps.  All renders below 24 fps quit and the program hangs up.
3. MLVProducer 2258 had "Temporal Noise Reduction" and Rduce color Noise" which are no longer available in version 2699
4. Remove Hot Pixels works only once on current task. When I load a new video the Hot Pixels Fix does not work.  To restore this feature I have to extract the program from the original zip file.
5. File Close All do not close the current video.

I have not tested other options.

Congratulations this is now the only app that fully supports 10/12 bit raw video.

Hi, RenatoPhoto. Thank you!


1. Probably i did somethink.
2. What codec do you use?
3. Yeah, i removed this filters, because i found out they are pretty useless. Even Premiere has better noise reduction. And now i'm working on new algorithm.
4. I will try to fix this.
5. It should close all files. But frame is keep showing.

Hi, thanks for this quick 10-12 bit version!!!!

I'm using 2699 intel version with exposure fix applied in 10-12bit crop rec 2016dec24-5d113.

When I open 10bit mlv in MLVP I get a 127 black level and I can see the image in computer screen ok. Then I transform to cinemaDNG. When I open cDNG in ACR I get a very very dark image with magenta highlights!. I'm doing something wrong or is it a bug?

What is the difference between ProRes (FAST) and ProRes (422),
because in Resolve the (422) files are shown to be 4444,
but weirdly the (FAST) is shown to be 422

Edit maybe you've just muddled the names up because in the preset menu, ProRes fast is 422 and ProRes 422 is actually 4444

Merry Christmas!!!   
Testing 10 bit on 5D3 and MLVProducer during Christmas:
When I render the 10 bit files MLVProducer quits at 99% and have to shut down the program.
The programs works fine when the output folder is the .....\output

Windows 7 64 bit
MLVProducer 10/12 bit

Previous version did not have this bug (mlvp.alpha.build2258.INTEL)

Update:  The bug is present when I use DNxHD 1080 codec
When this happens the file is partially stored in x_tmp.mov format, then when I want to render again the program gets stuck at 0% and hangs up..
This is a repeatable bug.

Aditional sound testing 10*12bit

Standard video 1920x1080 is processed correctly and MLVProducer renders video with audio in sync.
When cropped video 2144x1206 with sound (three files 4GB each aprox)  is tested.  MLVProducer renders video but the sound is not synchronized..  Looks like audio contained in the last mlv file is put first in the video.

I can't seem to open DNG's that I export from MLVProducer in anything (dcraw, ufraw, darktable, rawtherapee, etc). I wonder if it's because the ufraw that Ubuntu repositories provide is apparently not compiled with zlib support?

Quote
$ ufraw-batch --version
ufraw-batch 0.22
EXIV2 enabled.
JPEG enabled.
JPEG2000 (libjasper) disabled.
TIFF enabled.
PNG enabled.
FITS disabled.
ZIP enabled.
BZIP2 enabled.
LENSFUN enabled.

...maybe it would be nice to have an uncompressed DNG export option?

There are various zlib packages in the Ubuntu repos, and I have zlib1g installed, but I'm not sure which if any of the others might help the problem...

Thanks!

I'm trying to use MLVProducer to convert MLV files to DNG pictures.
I think this software is perfect for my workflow (great work!!) :)

I'm using FRSP and saving in MLV format.

I produce a MLV sunset timelapse file instead of 200 single dng file (just to experiment about reliability of FRSP).

The resulting files is more than 4 Gb.

MLVProducer (mlvp.alpha.build2679.INTEL) load quickly the file and I can change all parameters, but when I try to render in CDNG or DNG or TIFF I get this error (division by 0) and the program crash:

From log
Error:
Method: RenderToCDNG
Line: 18
Number: 11
Description: Divisione per zero
Error:
Method: RenderTask
Line: 10
Number: 11
Description: Divisione per zero

If I choose png the program work OK.

MLVFS works ok on this file.

I hope this information is enough to find the "bug".  :-[

Is there a place for MLV Producer requests?  I'd like an option to keep the "settings" or "options" for one clip to carry through to the next.  That is, if I "grade" some footage to see how it looks I'd like those same setting when I open the next clip, which is usually shot under the same lighting conditions.  Right now, each time I open a clip all the settings go back to default/neutral.  THANKS!

Also, while I'm here.  What is the best format, in your opinion, to save the MLV file, in that it retains the most information for the compression in a way that I could delete the large MLV files?  I don't want to save DNGs, so I'm looking for an 80% solution.  THANKS!

then I throw it in MLVProd, I do colorcorect, and after a render in any of codecs (H.264 4:2:0, 4:2:2, ProRes 444, DNx...) I receive the broken file of 30 MB in size, can open nothing it. The last is established Quicktime and k-lite codecs. in what there can be a problem?

I follow you with your Software since you start at May 2015 and the development you made is very impressing for me. But anthill now, I use the MLV Producer just as a quick Viewer for my MLV footage and sometimes as cDNG Converter for development in LR – ACR – Premiere ore AE. But MLVPlayer is much faster, also including the Voice in the Clip, best Basics for my and many other Peoples Work.

Today I try to develop in MLVProducer some Bird footage made with 5D3-123, ISO 100 / ISO 200, EF 600mm and EF100-400mm in 1920x1080 up to 2400x1340 pix. My Problem, I do not know to use the MLVPlayer in the best way like I use Lightroom, PS, After Effect ore Premiere Pro. My Target is to get a Clip with natural Colors in Adobe RGB, best possible sharpening and low Noise. Whatever I try on Settings anthill today, when I compared with my standard Workflow Results I can not use MLVProducer for the final work.

My Question to all, witch settings and workflow with MLVProducer you use to by satisfied. Is there a Workflow for MLVProducer I do not know?

Working on new feature - command server.

Some kind of API for MLVProducer.
A build-in TCP server running at localhost:22265. It will receive commands from other copies of MLVP and other applications.
New copies of MLVP will transfer command line to the first window. So, as a developer you should not write TCP client.

Im gonna ask you about commands that you need.
My first command is

Hi AWPStar,

I have a problem with MLVP 2722 Intel.
When I render a 10 bit mlv file in H264 422 or H264 444 I can see a *tmp file in the output directory (with the final size listed), but when it finish, the file dissapears and only remain on disk the audio file. In DNxHD it works ok, and in H264 420 is ok too (tmp file shows 0Kb untill render finish, and then it shows real size).

May be a bug? I don't know...

Thank you.

In some circumstances I have seen the tmp file stay after MLVProduces quits.  In this situation MLVProducer has refused to start.  Remove the *.tmp file from the output directory and the problem is fixed.  Maybe MLVprolducer should check for the existance of this file and delete, or have an option to delet it, if it exist in the output directory.
Title: Re: MLVProducer
Post by: pc_bel on February 11, 2017, 06:21:39 PM

But I don't see any tmp file remaining in disk. Now deleted all folder containing MLVP and copied again. Now works but still doing tests. I will post about it.

Dear developer of MLVP, can you add to output some lossless video codec? Problem with ffvnuff lossless that it didn't readable by Adobe products. I've tried to convert ffvnuff to ffv1 (that is essentially same and also lossless) and had ffv1 in avi that readable by Adobe, but with horrible loss of quality. Prores4444 doesn't help too - i've tried to color grade it with Adobe Camera Raw but there were visible artefacts and loss in quality. Could you please add uncompressed avi or other uncompressed video codec like ffv1 or logarith because except lossless ffvnuff (that unreadable) there are just uncompressed DNG sequence that is so hard to process. Thanks in advance for any response.

@AWPStar , Can you gain access to the System Encoders .dll?  or QT7 pluggin on windows to encode to any .mov codec installed on the system.
That way you don't have to be depend on FFMpeg , so end user can install any codec he or she wishes .
Here one more suggestion  :) zoe-lossless-codec-download (https://sourceforge.net/projects/zoe-lossless-codec/files/latest/download) been using this on my pc kind of heavy on the bitrate but can output 10bit or12bit
Quote
Zoe Lossless Codec is a video compression/decompression module to be used in AVI files under the Video for Windows (VfW) framework.
The encoded data will typically be stored inside AVI files. The current version allows lossless compression of grayscale video data in the "Y8 ", "Y10 " or "Y12 " formats

188 459  } 

This would be very good I think as it's in 12bit  normally the best you will find is 10bit AVI's or 10bit .mov encoding on PC platform.
But I'm not sure how to toggle it from 10 to 12 bit or it may be dependent on the input file .

Hi,
with the new 10bit ability, the EOS M and the 5D MkII are now able to shoot higher resolutions with sustained frame rate. However, these new resolutions aren't supported by the "remove focus dots" option. I have here a 1728x692/30p MLV video, and I'm not able to remove the focus dots using any of the existing drop-down options on the left of the "remove focus dots" option. How to go about it?

It says:

Does not work dual ISO. Or am I doing something wrong. When exporting, I put Resolution Priority. The difference in the test was not noticed, it was pulled out with a small ISO value

The video shows, when switching between ISO LOW and Balanced, there is no difference ((((

Is it possible to add at least DNG sequence support for import? That way people could be able to process Dual ISO DNG to normal DNG. RawFlow software that decode crop_mode MLVs to DNGs sometimes seems randomly produce corrupt frames (on Dual ISO mode) so now for Win users it impossible to shoot Dual ISO footage in crop_mode because of insufficient postprocessing.

@AWPstar

I have been trying out different MLV Converters for about two weeks now. I've been using your software now for about a week and I am really liking it. There are a few things I find quite "fiddly" though, I don't understand which Dials or filters actually affect the CinemaDNG output, seems as though most settings don't affect the CinemaDNG output, which is good, I prefer a clean output, but would be nice with some highlighting or some notice of what affects the selected output.

The colour space also does nothing to the CinemaDNG output? Or does it? I usually go by None/linear and increase the gamma to 0.30. There is also two Log-C Colour spaces, one with capital letter and one without. Any difference ?

 3x5 scaling is nice, but is it only for display purposes, it does not affect the CinemaDNG? Is the scaling not good enough? and or would it be better to let After Effects or Resolve handle the Stretch ?

How do I best do FPN Profiles? I took seperate shots at all the base ISO's with the lens cap on. The Vertical Stripe fix does not seem to work too good. I still see Vertical stripes under heavy grade.

Also many of the windows like Timeline, RGB Parade and so on are stuck on the front, if I alt+tab to Desktop or whatever, they are still visible and clicking them takes me back to MLVProducer.

I have a problem in my RAW video.
When I shoot some scenes, there is an unpleasant pixel color defect, usually it is visible in the openings of the foliage of trees, and also on small white objects.
Does anyone know this problem? Thanx.
Canon 5d Mark 2.

im also facing this problem with my canon 70D so i have stoped shooting in raw after upgrading to 70D. never had this problem with my previous 650D and 550D camera

Hey, thanks @AWPStar ! You did the best software to decode MLV (I've tried many), although I don't like it being just for windows.
Would be really cool if someone ported it to gnu/linux... or rewrite it on Go and then port to linux  (just dreamming... let me be an idealist, please).

A suggestion: add a second tab for 3D LUT. Would be good for using ImpulZ, for example, that needs cineon conversion...

Another suggestion: there's a software called "File Optimizer" (shitty name), that uses latest advancements on data compression to optimized some types of file. Their code is open source (uses Visual C++ though):
http://nikkhokkho.sourceforge.net/static.php?page=FileOptimizer

The name is bad and the website too, but it's really on the edge of data compression optimization:

NAME
            mlvp - Magic Lantern Video Producer

SYNOPSIS
           mlvp [ -i input ] [ -e exposure ] [ -b black level ] [ -d demosaicing ] [ -r reconstruct ] [ -c colorspace ]
                [ -wb white balance ] [ -fd | -hp | -vs | -s ] [ -fpn fixed noise pattern ] [ -fdots ]  [ -dualiso ]

DESCRIPTION

         Magic Lantern Video Producer (mlvp) is a tool to decode and re-encode MLV files.
          The mode of operation is selected with the following options:

          -e                Set Exposure. Default is 0.
          -b                Set black level. Default is auto.
          -d                Set demosaicing algorithm. Default is MLVPDM
          -r                 Set reconstruction (Default)
          -c                 Select Color space, such as AdobeRGB, AlexaLOG and many others. Default is AdobeRGB
         -wb                White Balance, values in Kelvin. Default is auto.
          -fd                 Enable to remove focus dots
          -hp               Enable to remove hot pixels
          -vs                Enable to remove vertical stripes
          -s                  Scale to 3x5
          -fpn              Choose a fixed noise pattern file
         -dualiso        Enable to process dual_iso. Modes are: high, low, noise and resolution
         -cont              Contrast level (0-100). Default is 0.
         -shw              Shadow level (0-100). Default is 0.
         -hlt                 Highlight level (0-100). Default is 0.
         -sat                Saturation level (0-100). Default is 0.
         -vib                Vibrance level (0-100). Default is 0.
        -us                  Sharpen (0-100). Default is 0.
        - ss                 Smart Sharpen (0-100). Default is 0.
       -lut                  Choose 3D LUT file
        .
        .    [forgot other options]
        .
        -c               Output Codec, (see Output Options)
        -o               Output

OUTPUT OPTIONS:

          | prores444 | prores422 | png 8-bit | h264 | cineform |

         Note: for png output, select the folder using -fo option.

EXAMPLES

          Simple processing:
              $ mlvp -i foo.mlv -c h264 -o bar.mp4

          Process dual_iso files with AlexaLog:
              $ mlvp -i foo.mlv -c alexalog -dualiso resolution -c prores444 -o bar.mov



It could also read a config file (such as .mlvprc) that can be located on ~/.mlvprc (for local config) or on /etc/.mlvprc (global config).
Maybe the file preview could be integrated with mpv (http://mpv.io) player or mplayer (http://mplayerhq.hu), for example:

Code: [Select]
$ mlvp foo.mlv | mpv
If you host on github I can help with documentation (using mandoc (http://mdocml.bsd.lv/)), although I'm not good with code...

Hi Guys,

Any advice will be helpful!

Thanks!!

Color scape doesn't affect to DNG, because it's raw.
I can do special function for this and hide it deeper in interface.
Title: Re: MLVProducer
Post by: lordwilli on June 23, 2017, 10:03:34 PM
@AWPStar Right! I just realized that it won't affect DNG file..

Do you think i can export RedLog/Alexa Color Space to ProRes 4444 so i can get RED/Alexa look?

Well i wish there is .R3D export setting there :D

I'm waiting for that feature!!

Thankyou so much AWPStar! Great work!

Yo, sorry if this has already been asked... I am an mlv newbie, looking for a software to simply output cdng for ps then 3dequalizer.
I get a pinkish hue after converting. The preview is fine. Any ideas? 6d with latest 10 bit ml nightly. Is 10 bit mlv supported?
Update: mov output works, so i assume 10 bit is no problem. My first guess would be white balance.

(https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fthumb.ibb.co%2FfES8oQ%2Fmlvproducer_01.jpg&hash=b12d1c46e0b978a43b5b840403ecf558) (http://ibb.co/fES8oQ)

anonymous image sites (http://imgbb.com/)

I think its just white balance. The wb is way off in the exported dng, but as far as i can tell it can be fully corrected.

Thanks for this amazing software, i used mlrawviewer years ago, was disappointed when found out its abandoned. This is even better...

@AWPStar Just saw your plugin system. Have you thought about AVISynth support? For example, it has a script that would help with aliasing when using dual_iso, called Tlsophote (http://avisynth.nl/index.php/TIsophote).
There's also stabilization (CelStabilize (http://avisynth.nl/index.php/CelStabilize)), denoise (Deathray (https://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=159148)) and sharpen (ReCon (http://avisynth.nl/index.php/ReCon)) scripts. And the high quality algorithm for interpolation Spline64 (http://avisynth.nl/index.php/Resampling#Spline_resampler), that would be good for anamorphic footages.

Hello Magic Lantern Community,

    I recently converted from Mac to PC, and am using Windows 10. I cannot seem to figure out how to export dngs out of MLVProducer. I personally like taking DNGs and putting them in After Effects to transcode with Cinelog-C. I had to use mlv dump which took a really long time. I couldn't figure out how to batch export. Is there a batch export to dngs option in MLVProducer? I'm new to PC, and couldn't get MLVFS to work, and I tried for hours. Please, if anyone can help me, I would be really appreciative. Thanks.

Post by: bpv5P on July 14, 2017, 02:25:58 AM
Paul, you need to open the MLV file, go to the "output" panel, choose DNG and click "render task".
I would suggest you use CinemaDNG instead. It's basically the DNG's into a single file, it will open on after effects (camera raw) the same way, but will save you some size (lossless compression) and is easier to organize (don't need folders with loads of DNG's in them).

I'm running mlvp.alpha.build2722.INTEL on OSX 10.10 and after correcting a short 2 minute 1920x1080-24FPS footage and trying to export as ProRes 444 FAST it process it until 99% and  doesn't finish. it leaves the wav and the mov files in the output directory and doesn't complete the task, the application seems to freeze out.

 any suggestions?

This worked great thank you! Is there any way to do a batch render? I had to choose each MLV file for the Cinema DNGs to render.

Also, I cannot make any lens corrections in Adobe Camera Raw with these Cinema DNGs (or the DNGs I exported with MLV Dump). On Mac, this wasn't an issue. But on Windows, I cannot even use the sliders manually. CR2 Files work fine, no problems. I went to the Tokina 11-16 f2.8 DX II lcp file and placed it under my user name in Camera Raw, Lens Profiles, to still no avail. I even edited the file, changing the word "True" to False" for the entire file. Restarted the computer, still nothing. If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it. I don't think Adobe will help me because Cinema DNGs don't directly come from the Canon DSLR, but from software.

Yes , use the file dropdown menu then select as many mlv/raw file as you like.
Short cut key Ctrl+O
Windows user tip
you can select all by hi-lighting the first file then go to the last file with the "shift key" pressed Hi-light the last file and all will be hi-lighted for import
Enable "Group View" in the Windows dropdown menu and double click on each file to load and make your adjustments .
Remember , you need to set output for each or use the global tab then hit the "Render Task"
I just tested 4 mlv's with different output (Cdng's & ProRes4444) to different hard drive location with success .
Hope that's useful & helpful

Hello, tried MLVProducer last night for the 1st time and was pretty pleased. Great work! I do have couple or questions though about the formats, I was trying it with raw 10 bit and 12 to test them out, and exported to ProRes 4444, H. 264 and the dng files.
I color grade in resolve, but I couldn't open H. 264 with it,
1- any idea why?
And my other question
2- which would u recommend most using ProRes or the dngs? I just read above about the cinemadng having one file instead of a folder with whole bunch of dng files.
And 3- if I export to ProRes the sharpness made with MLVProducer won't be applied right?
Thanks for the help

2- which would u recommend most using ProRes or the dngs? I just read above about the cinemadng having one file instead of a folder with whole bunch of dng files.

Color grade in dng will take no effect, unless you export to a non-raw format.
For CinemaDNG, other tools are better, such as MLVFS.

It will, because ProRes is not a RAW format. It won't be applied if you do it in a RAW format (DNG / CDNG).

One of the best programs I've seen. Great stuff.
      I was wondering if anyone else has this “problem”. When you preview the MLV files in the viewer it looks nothing like the DNG or CDNG files that are exported. Any other file that is exported eg. ApProRes, DNxHD, even tiff sequence  is 99% of what you preview in MLVProducer. In the viewer you get a really cinematic picture but the export looks nothing like the picture in the viewer. Here are 3 snapshots if you don’t mind taking a look.

I tried H.264 4:2:2 and also tried H.264 RGB and both did not open in resolve. was able to play them both in an external player but no in resolve.

It will, because ProRes is not a RAW format. It won't be applied if you do it in a RAW format (DNG / CDNG).
Hmm Coz I tried same editing with H.264 4:2:2 and with ProRes 4:4:4 and the H264 was sharper that's why I asked

Sorry Andy600 don't understand. I mean after I have applied color correction, any DNG or CDNG sequences that I output looks nothing like what I have done. I also experienced this in MLRawViewer.
Also if you use MLVFS and mount the MLV's the DNG already look like they have had contrast and saturation applied to them.
If I output another type of file eg. ProRes the color correction that I apply are what was seen in the viewer.

C/DNG are RAW outputs, that is why no colour correction or anything else applies, only Fix pattern noise smd vertical stripe fix in MLVproducer affect the CinemaDNG output. CC only applies to compressed formats like h264, dnxhd, prores etc.

DNG and CDNG files are raw format. No color grading or filters will be applied. You can use it and then color grade in another software like resolve or any other

You don't need to understand any header structures, here's roughly how I implemented decompression in MLV App (in C)...

I used Martin Herring's modified lj92 version with support for multiple planes: https://github.com/martinhering/liblj92 (https://github.com/martinhering/liblj92) -  Not sure if the one in MLVFS is identical

It's pretty simple to use. You need a uint16_t array which it will output to, and a uint8_t pointer to the raw data you read from the mlv file (in this example it's called RAWFrame):
Code: [Select]
    uint16_t * decoded_frame = (uint16_t *)malloc(width * height * sizeof(uint16_t));

    lj92 decoder_object;
    lj92_open(&decoder_object, RAWFrame, raw_data_size, &width, &height, &bitdepth, &components);
    lj92_decode(decoder_object, decoded_frame, 1, 0, NULL, 0);
    lj92_close(decoder_object);

Hi everyone, hoping i am not interrupting anything serious here, but i have an issue here.

The FPN removal from MLVProducer seems to be a powerful tool but i'm shooting with a Blackmagic in DNG sequences. I can't find a way to import those in MLVProducer.
Tried to convert to RAW MLV but without any success.

If you have something in mind, it would be very helpful.

Thanks in advance

Why int16? It converts from 14 to 16 bit?
Title: Re: MLVProducer
Post by: ilia3101 on August 24, 2017, 07:33:24 PM
Yes, it converts to 16 bit, but the value range is 0-16384, so it's still only a 14 bit range.

EDIT: also, variable components was 1 and bitdepth 14

AWPStar,

MLVProducer is absolutely amazing!  Thank you so much for it.  I am using it all the time for my hobby ML projects when I travel because it does a hell of a job with my 10-year old laptop (Core2Duo, 4GB of RAM) which is small and lightweight and suitable for travel.  I especially love the preset automation, batch processing and the ProResFast 444 feature which I also use for archiving my clips after applying basic adjustments to them.  I still struggle with obtaining this punchy vibrance, contrast and colors that I get from ACR in Lightroom but your statement that this issue has been fixed with your latest development makes me very eager to check it out.

Будь здоров и огромное спасибо!

Good news!
New version will support lj92 compressed raw.
But i need to rework some code.

Please send me couple of MLV-files with lj92 compression(new crop mode).

@Ilia3101
Why we need multiple planes?
I just trying to optimaize the code.
Do we need this stuff?

Dear AWPStar, could you add AVI output in some high quality codec or uncompressed? 
It woud really help with my workflow with Virtualdub and Avisynth. Avisynth unfortunelly doesn't read any output video from MLV Producer and it must be reencode.
Title: Re: MLVProducer

You can use QuickTime plugin for VirtualDub to open mov-files.
I can add format settings, but nor for all codecs.

AWPStar, you're doing a great job! Your software is the best so far imo, but there's always some room for improvement)
1. I lack scrolling in GroupView and especially in Media queue (( It's necessary to have mouse scrolling and keyboard arrows to switch between footages as their amount may be more than dedicated window can accomodate at once.
2. I'm not an expert, but there's somewhat weird about utilizing CPU when rendering in different ways. I'v got a Xeon e5-2658v3 CPU, which codes "passthru" picture into ProRes 4444 Fast pretty good (Raw from 50D  10-20 fps), and all 12 cores work at near full speed, 24 threads are loaded. But when i do some adjustments and add several filters to the raw footage, the rendering speed falls drastically to 4-6 FPS, CPU clock is about 60% while CPU cores are mostly rest. Is there any hope for optimization here?

Thank you!

Thank you!
1. this will be more usable in new version.

2:
-Tell me your settings. (Menu, Settings->Performance->Threads)
-That filters and corrections do you use? Some of them should be multithreaded.
If you can, check filters one-by-one to get slower one.

Post by: mvrck on September 07, 2017, 04:56:29 PM
AWPStar, thank you for developing this software! I've been playing with it for some time and I have a few questions and suggestions.

When I open an MLV file, the exposure is nothing like what I've seen on the camera screen (700D) - it's a few stops darker. However, If I export the video to Cinema DNG, without touching anything, the exposure of the dng files is correct. What could be the cause of this? Also, is it possible to make importing image sequences as video in MLVProducer?

I like exporting MLVs in image sequences, then correcting and grading one in Camera Raw/Lightroom, sync the settings with the others and then import into a video editor. The trouble is, the hot pixel removal and the false color reducing doesn't work when exporting the MLV as Cinema DNG image sequence, unless I then encode the sequence into a video format (in Premiere Pro), then import it back into MLVProducer, correct the false color and then re-encode again. That's a lot of steps where things can go wrong.

Another thing is the Cinema DNG files from MLVProducer aren't recognized in Photoshop or Premiere/After Effects as an image sequence. Probably something to do with missing metadata. If I convert the DNGs into JPGs, then the sequence is recognized. Can you suggest something to try and fix this?

Thanks! BTW, obviously I'm excited about the new version with compressed raw support. Keep up the good work!

Post by: pewpow on September 08, 2017, 08:31:08 PM
Very nice app. However, whenever I load my MLV files in MLVProducer, the footage exposure goes down drastically. I have also opened it with MLRawViewer and the exposure there is the same as I shot. But when I edit it in MLVProducer, I have to crank up the exposure with 3.0 - 4.0 to get the same exposure as when I shot. I am aware of the different LOG functions it has. It's on default (AdobeRGB)

Edit: when I import the mlv (the image is still underexposed) and export as cdng. The cdng's look different than what I saw on MLVProducer, and it looks like how I exposed it in camera.

How can I solve this?


I would like to do the color correcting in an app - either MLVProducer or AE. My preference goes to MLVProducer as I won't have to convert the mlv's to cdng's. So hopefully my workflow will be :
Import into MLVProducer, color correct and export as Proress
Import the Proress into adobe PP, edit, grade, export

Title: Dots Eos M
Post by: helios650 on September 10, 2017, 04:12:17 PM
Hi, this software is a beast! It saved me during short film shoot :) Only thing that could be improved is support for focus dots in 3x3 mode in eos m. I think combining 80000331 1808x727 preset with 80000346 1808x1190 should take care of all the dots because both profiles removes different part of them. It would be great if that is possible :D

I have just opened a 3K MLV file shot at 3072x1728 resolution and successfully exported it into ProResFast4444 format in the same resolution.  Colors are greatly improved.  The ProRes file plays fine on the MPV Player.  All this I did on my 10 year old Core2duo laptop with 4 GB of RAM.

I also notice there no more CPU pacific builds (AMD & INTEL) one build cover all  :)
Plus and this is a BIG plus the image is no longer 1-2 stop darker in the preview , it looks the same as mlvfs , quick mount in file explorer or even adobe after effects cs6.

Look out ! Blackmagic Resolve ,  MLVProducer is taken over MLV Raw Video   ;D

I can confirm the disappearing workspace panels issue, although it stopped happening when I changed some (unrelated) settings (Ctrl+S) and applied (saved) them. Also, the first couple of times I tried to render (export) a video, the program stopped responding. I found out it was because it was looking for the default 'output' folder in the main directory, but since it wasn't there, it just froze. I created an 'output' folder and that fixed the issue. Of course, pointing out to a different existing folder would also work.

Otherwise everything works.

I played for several hours with v.3151 last night and must say, I love it!   It does with MLV-files what Adobe Camera RAW (ACR) does with RAW photos and even more. I tested it with MLV-rec and RAW-rec video files from the 100D.  I still cannot get the same color vividness that I get with single DNGs from the same clip in ACR but it's probably me.  It requires quite a bit of training to get the look that you want.  In that respect, the new grading tools are extremely helpful.  On the other hand, Producer is powerful, efficient, full of very useful features, highly automated and portable - ideal for travel and vacation when most people, including me, shoot their amateur videos but cannot carry a powerful, heavy and bulky workstation with them to edit and archive their videos. Producer will do the job even on a small and lightweight laptop without beefy processor, video card and tons of RAM.

Most of all I like the noise reduction feature.  I didn't test it much and on very noisy files but my impression is that it does a hell of a job reducing monochromatic noise but preserving fine detail.  Congratulations, AWPStar !

Here are two bugs that I would like to report on for now:
---------------------------------------------------------------
1) V. 3151 is not very stable.  It opens all MLV-formats (14, 12, 10 bit and losslessly compressed) almost instantly, regardless of video resolution but adjustments are quite laggy, especially when several files are imported in the Que and synchronizing settings from one file to the others is attempted.  During export, the software hangs in the middle or even the beginning of a file and stops responding. The project is gone.  The only way to stop it is via the Task Manager.  After that the software gets damaged and would no longer start even after computer restart.  It needs deleting all files in the Producer directory, extracting the fresh files from the zip archive and starting all over again.  I tested it on two different computers and in both cases I observed this behavior.  With regard to stability, the old v.2722 works much better.

2) As reported above, sound export does not work properly.   It maybe works well with MPEG2 export, although I did not check for synchronization between video and sound.  But with ProResFast and ProRes422 export, audio stops much earlier than video in the exported file.

@AWPStar -- This post (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7139.msg190764#msg190764post) may be worth of your interests in order to try and fine-tune your algorithm for Dual-ISO files especially coming from 14/12-bit Lossless.

It includes several sample files for you to try out when you have time. Thanks!

...During export, the software hangs in the middle or even the beginning of a file and stops responding. The project is gone.

I also notice this similar behavior on my MBP running OS X 10.13 via under Wine.

After playing several more hours with v.3151 I found a way to improve stability for a while.  After clean extraction of the zip file to a separate directory I started Producer, opened a MLV file and exported it into the ProResFast4444 format.  This allowed me to get v.3151 working as stable as v.2722 for a while.  Adjustments worked fine and Copy/Paste settings from one file to the others on the Que page worked OK too.  Later I tried exporting to the MPEG4 format and the instability described above came back again.

Obviously, stability needs improvement but this ProResFast4444 trick might help playing with the software and testing its features that really are amazing!

Happy testing!

Another bug:
=========

"Render Queue" does not work.  It just creates a proxy folder with some kind of corrupt proxies and sound files inside but the actual ProResFast444 files are missing in the Output folder after export.  This function used to work fine with v.2722.

"Render Task" renders fine for both ProResFast444 and ProRes422 files.

Thanks for bug-reports!

@Thobias
Can you make an example with bagged audio and share it?

@IDA_ML
>"Render Queue" does not work.  It just creates a proxy folder
What are the export settings? Proxy mode enabled?

4K crash confirmed. Out of memory error.

Freezing while rendering confirmed.
As mvrck said, mlvp doesn't create "output" folder. To fix this you should create it manually or check "Use source folder as default" and restart mlvp.

I will check the others little bit later.

AWPStar,

Proxy mode seems to be enabled all the time since it always creates a subfolder in the manually selected Output directory, (mine is C:\ ...\Desktop\Temp), called "proxy" when I press "Render Queue".  In the "P" mode (red line in the top of the GUI) I get half quality proxies.  When I press "P" again, the red line becomes white and I get corrupt proxy files plus sound files in the "proxy" subfolder.  I do not know what am I doing wrong.  With v.2722, when the top line was white and I press "Render Queue" it would always export the edited files in the Queue one after the other and save them in the selected output folder with the selected settings.  Version 3151 does not behave in the same way.  Progress bar indicates export, in the end the "DONE" message appears but the exported files are missing.  They just don't seem to get saved/written.  Just the subfolder "proxy" with the corrupted files is there.  Version 3151 seems to work roperly only in the proxy mode (red line on top).  The proxy files are OK in this case, just much smaller in size.

My export settings:
--------------------
Export mode: ProResFast
File name: same as original
Frame rate: same as original
Frame step: 1
Include audio: active
Container: MOV
---------------------

I also tried MPEG2 export but it crashes as I explained above.

I want to mention something that I don't think is a bug, but I still wonder if something can be done about it. I'm talking about the Reduce False Color function of MLVProducer, which is pretty necessary with RAW video. It works fine.. unless there are saturated reds in the frame, such as flowers, clothes, etc. It absolutely destroys the reds and it can make the footage unusable. Can something be done about it at all, or is it perhaps too complicated to fix?

AWPStar,

Wonderful works! Thanks for MLVProducer tools.

For me, the last update don't works with few MLV's that don't have standard resolutions because I tweak Some  code for 5D2 Nightly Builds.

1880x940
2152x1076

(for example 1856x1044, 1872x1012, 2144x1076 work perfectly)

The viewer of MLVProducer stay desperately black.
MlRawViewer work ok whith all this videos.

Thanks a lot.

@AWPstar

I want to use your program as a quick way to review my lossless footage without having to convert first. but if I add too many MLV's, they dont fit in the Group View folder, instead of stacking the thumpnails above each other, its like a Notepad, the thumpnails continue out of the "folder".

Also, the first MLV that loads after importing multiple MLV's works fine, but when I select any other MLV in the Group view, only the first frame displays correctly and playing the MLV within the program only increases exposure of said frame until completely white. If I chose any of the Logs the frame turns to grey as I play it.

Win 8.1

I experience the same issue. If i load more than 1 MLV, all MLVs but the first turn completely white after the first 1-2 frames. (Eos M, lossless 12-bit)

Title: Re: MLVProducer: [v3171]
Post by: IDA_ML on October 13, 2017, 10:10:55 AM
AWPStar,

I can confirm the same behavior for v.3171 as reported above.  When I import a MLV file it palys and exports fine.  If I add more MLV files to the render queue and click on either of them to open it in the main window, I see  its first frame.  When I try to play the clip, within a few frames it turns totaly white and also Producer exports it that way.  I used MLV files from the 100D shot with the RAW_rec module in the 5x magnification mode at 2520x1080 resolution and 8...11 lossless bitrate to test the v.3171.  If you may need the MLVs that I used for these tests please let me know.  I will try to upload them somewhere and will send you a download link.

I had to switch back to v.3151 which allows me to process and export the MLV clips one by one using the "Render Task" function.

I hope, this information is helpful and look forward to a fixed working new version.  MLV Producer is fantastic !!!  Thank you again for your time and systematic efforts to make this wonderful gift to the Magic Lantern Community.

Continue to use this amazing tool for my MLV files.  Much appreciated and thanks much.

I also use it to transcode GoPro footage into DNxHD for editing in Davinci Resolve.   Any plans to update so it can output DNxHD in 4k?   I have an underwater shark filming trip coming up and will be shooting in 4k for the first time.

AWPStar,

It may be interesting for you and all other MLVProducer users to know that v. 3171 also works with the latest MLV-Lite files with sound:

https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=16650.msg192176;topicseen#msg192176

My first tests with 8...11 bit losslessly compressed files with sound from the 100D indicate that v.3171 opens them and plays them fine along with the recorded audio and finally exports them to normal H.264 with sound using the Render task function.  It even allows me to copy and paste settings from one file to the others in the Queue window but the Render Queue function is still not stable enough.  For now, I export the files one by one using the Render task function.

@AWPStar , just notice there a problem with file association on win7 pro , it wasn't a problem with previous  versions .
If I right click on .mlv or .raw and change file association and navigate to mlproducer.exe , select it and nothing happen
I can change association to mlvfs.exe or even notepad.exe but not version #3171 mlvproducer.exe .
I tried the regedit tip
@vstrglv
regedit->Find ".mlv"
Remove all associations
still nothing , is there something Microsoft is blocking?
I know for sure that my .raw use to show the mlvproducer thumb image icon , no longer.
just check on my i5 laptop and with intel version 2722 , file association is working with .raw and with .mlv
showing the "Pd" thumb image icon .

Hey Guys
Nice workaround here. I tried MLVP and it exported an mlv to prores just fine. But for some reason 90% the times the clip becomes static and white with pink dots, on export and preview. I'm having a really hard time figuring out what's wrong.

Yes, preview and batch export in the Render Queue seems to be the most serious problem with v3171. A workaround would be to use the Render task option and export the clips one by one - tedious and time consuming but it works.  Just don't try to preview (play) the clips before export.  This damages them.

AWPStar, if that issue has been fixed already, could you possibly post a new version?  Thank you again for your remarkable work!

I just exported dozens of mlv files to prores 4444 using render q. with no problems.

But still, problem starts when i import more than one file. So, i need to import files one by one, and than export them with render q. without problems

This is still best mlv software around>)

Hello AWPStar,

I have prepared a .RAR archive with 4 MLV files that you can download from here:

https://we.tl/z3Vx12PszF

The files were shot on the 5DMkIII in the 10 and 14-bit losslessly compressed 3K crop mode at 3072x1920 resolution.  I put them in a New Folder on my desktop, highlighted them and dragged and dropped them onto the MLVProducer icon.  Producer starts and I can see all 4 files in the Render Queue.  I then clicked each one of them one by one to open them in the main window.  Now, when I push the playback button on each one of them, the following happens:

1) The 10-bit LL file plays fine
2) The 14-bit LL files get white after the first few frames

The same thing happens if I try to export them.

I am on a desktop PC with a Q6600 quad core Intel processor, 8 GB of RAM and the GTX 750 GPU.  The OS is Win7x64 Ultimate.  Since Producer did not crash, I don't have a log file.

The above link will be active for 7 days.  I keep my thumbs pressed that you can fix the above problem!  We all love Producer! Good luck!

AWPStar,

Thank you for your fast response but you should take your time to make sure, everything works fine before posting a new version.  I downloaded the v.3200 and the whitening issue seems to be gone at palyback and Render Queue export.  However:

1)  The grading tap is missing,
2)  The software does not respond to the Contrast, Blacks, Whites, Saturation, Vibrance, Shadows and Highlights controls, (clip does not change at all) . 

I did not have time to check everything but this is what does not seem to be working at first site.  So please fix these things and post your v.3200 again.

Post by: IDA_ML on November 10, 2017, 02:41:15 PM
Here is some more feedback on the new v.3200 that I tested for several hours last night. 

1) I got rid of the problem #2 that I described in my post 981 above.  How? I found an old 14-bit MLV file from the 100D and opened it in Producer.  Now the controls started working again and the clip responded to each one of them.  Then I opened a losslessly compressed 8...11 bit file with sound and it responded fine to the controls.  Since then, no problems any more with all the MLV files that I tested.  Mario1000, thank you for the old MLV tip!

2) Playback and batch export from the Render Queue works fine.  I played a lot with it and never had a glitch.  That is a great relief!  Thank you so much AWPStar for fixing that. 

3) I also tried to use Producer with WinXP x32 bit and it works great, except for one thing.  The software hangs when Render Task or Render Queue is attempted.  The only way out of this situation is Ctrl+Alt+Del and stop from the Task manager.

3) I miss the grading tool from v. 3171.  It saves a lot of time with fast basic adjustments.  AWPStar, if you could add that tool to the v. 3200, I should greatly appreciate that.

The grading tool is there: just open the menu "windows" and see the last entry "Grading"

Hello AWPStar,

first of all: thank you for this brilliant piece of software!
I tried out a couple of tools but yours is by far the most extensive one and been silently using it for quite some time.

While it works very well for me, I do have a feature request.
I'm using an online/offline workflow exporting the MLV to a DNxHD for offline editing and a cDNG-sequence for onlining later in color-grading.
The DNxHD MLVProducer renders using the "DNxHD 1080p" option is (please correct me if I'm wrong) DNxHD185X.
I then do a recompression of those files down to a DNxHD36 to make them smaller and easier to work with (roughly about one fifth of the size of 185X).
I have to take this step because I have to use external drives for the offline. So this in mind my feature request would be:

1) Implementation of commandline options for ffmpeg specifying exactly which codec and bitrate one wants to use.

or taking it a step further

2) Implementation of a ffmpeg GUI (is that even possible?).

or I guess the most simple solution of all

3) Implementation of output format options DNxHD36 and DNxHD120 (knowing both are 8 bit)

Thank you for considering :-)

Best regards,
Christian

Very nice app. However, whenever I load my MLV files in MLVProducer, the footage exposure goes down drastically. I have also opened it with MLRawViewer and the exposure there is the same as I shot. But when I edit it in MLVProducer, I have to crank up the exposure with 3.0 - 4.0 to get the same exposure as when I shot. I am aware of the different LOG functions it has. It's on default (AdobeRGB)

Edit: when I import the mlv (the image is still underexposed) and export as cdng. The cdng's look different than what I saw on MLVProducer, and it looks like how I exposed it in camera.

How can I solve this?


I would like to do the color correcting in an app - either MLVProducer or AE. My preference goes to MLVProducer as I won't have to convert the mlv's to cdng's. So hopefully my workflow will be :
Import into MLVProducer, color correct and export as Proress
Import the Proress into adobe PP, edit, grade, export

Anything? Still having this issue.

I had the same problem with update v3203.
In my case in the v3203 program folder I found only two files "MLVProducer.exe" and "log.txt". maybe because I only downloaded the update.
So....  I copied the file that was located in v3203 folder "MLVProducer.exe" in the folder of the previous version of the program (3200). run the .exe file from this position and the program works without any problems.  sincerely I do not know if it is the correct procedure but in my case it worked.

Hello,

Please excuse my basic questions as I have not shot with my 5dMKIII for a while.  I have recently learned of MLVProducer and the workflow has me interested in learning more.  Here are some questions I have:

1)  Can MLVProducer output to an external monitor?  I have a Blackmagic Intensity Pro 4K and would like to grade on my external monitor.

2)  Can MLVProducer use DNG profiles?  I have DNG profiles that I use in Lightroom for stills and it would be great to apply to RAW video.

3)  Is it possible to output to an AVI format called Canopus HXQ?  This is for use in Grass Valley Edius the NLE.

4)  Can you edit the files straight from your card without any conversion?  This would be a great compared to the workflow of the past.

Thanks for the program and for your help!

Hello, Bassman2003!

1. No. But this is possible. I can implement this.
2. MLVProducer and Lightroom have difference in tools, so i dont thing this is possible.
3. Only if ffmpeg has its decoder. I will research this.
4. What do you mean, without any conversion? You cannot edit raw file and leave it raw.

Hello,

Thank you for your quick reply.  Please disregard #4.  I watched a YouTube video last night and saw the workflow.

With regards to #2, what would be the best way achieve the same workflow?  Custom colors applied to the RAW video?  Create a custom LUT?

As a side note, have you thought about packaging up your program and selling it as a plugin to the major NLEs?  I am sure a lot of folks would like to be able to edit MLV directly inside of Premiere etc...

Hi there, I've been using MLVProducer for over a year now without any issues but I've just started using Resolve to grade CDNGs and ran into a small issue. When I export my MLVs to CDNGs through MLVProducer I always tick "Remove Vertical Stripes" but when I import them into Resolve I'm seeing some strange patterns on certain clips. When I export the clips to .mov files the stripes are present in the exported files as well. I've included some examples from inside Resolve below.

Any advice on how to avoid this would be appreciated.

@ AWPStar , I was playing around with Dual ISO Video from 5D2 again  :D and processed a short clip to "Balanced" .
I couldn't believe how good dual iso processing in mlvproducer is , when I try it back about a year ago I got bad results
but now on v2771 (yes I know there a new version 3200 , but I can't drag & drop or file associate it to mlv's just have to load thought the main menu)
Has very clean shadows (that what I was going for) but did have to adjust the black level from 1793 (that only in dual iso) to 1791, normally it's that in 14bit .
Very good job !! make's me what to do a project in dual iso (for the low light detail) as 5d2 is not the best (5d3 & 6D are far better) but with dual iso it now can
compete with those camera  8)

1)  Can MLVProducer output to an external monitor?  I have a Blackmagic Intensity Pro 4K and would like to grade on my external monitor.

1. No. But this is possible. I can implement this.
A big +1

I too would love to see this come true , that would make this the Prefect Raw processing app. hands down .
The biggest problem with grading is not having a proper color space when you are  viewing on the same monitor you are working on .
I use Blackmagic USB 3.0 Ultra Studio SDI box which uses the same video desktop software as the add in PCIe card
there's a SDK kit for windows Blackmagic_DeckLink_SDK_10.9.9.zip (http://sw.blackmagicdesign.com/DeckLink/v10.9.9/Blackmagic_DeckLink_SDK_10.9.9.zip?Key-Pair-Id=APKAJTKA3ZJMJRQITVEA&Signature=IhBvyGVqd4Nyd2QYrVa7JveTsDY/sk5FH9Jkq2gpOa4xcTw0jWYOqpJg8A0/m88s/Kb1qNVrMxrJ1U5zvLYP3Eewx/CZSljGvR0fzB74kMGY/8XiGwHPSeilxHo+i1OLtWyhCE3H2il+EWQctjrc/wsPvXaUtpX1fhLUTaP0o6PtBOFVvT7+S58Orpguw+StuRgm2sfFlbNhHHEEPopIi9FNgUK6z6Q9kZunhflHBzMf3rM75HsihS1rrwETm9EUhL2wwDwFSYSMaaH57f/TugbIwMIyvZTk/wBLlQ7Bf2PQOP7k0bLKGAeQ8QHmdA/NgRLz+8SgZUw6NDDrkgaLsg==&Expires=1514965939) there a Examples.sln that open up in Microsoft Visual Basic 2015 ,

Happy New Year, AWPStar and thank you for this amazing and very powerful software that you created!

Over the holidays, I finally found some time to test the latest v.3203 version of Producer and can confirm that it works very well.  My impression is that it is more stable than previous versions, regardless of the bit rate and file size used.  It works with 8...11, 12 and 14-bit losslessly compressed files too.  The Render Queue feature finally works without or with very little crashes.  The noise reduction feature that I often apply to clips shot at high ISO also provides pretty good results. 

The only thing I wish an improvement for are the colors.  Although greatly improved compared to older versions, the colors still are pretty dull and lack the vibrance and vividness of those obtained with Adobe Camera RAW.

Thank you again and keep up the good work!

Hello AWPStar,

How do we update your new custom maps in our 3203 version of MLV Producer?  Where are these available?  Do we just put them in the data/fpm directory?   Will they be recognized by the software with their new .ppm extension instead of the old .dat?

Will you provide a new build with the latest focus pixel maps included?

Thanks.

There is a lot going on with focus pixels.  Please read here:

You may also want to contact Dfort who created the latest focus pixel maps.  He might give you some helpful hints on which ones to implement into the latest version of Producer.  I can't wait to test!

Hi AWPStar - I've only just come across MLVP and have been reading through the development - amazed by the feature set, fantastic job altogether!

Just a quick question re: color spaces (thou this is probably applicable to other conversion apps too) - I understand each color space has its own unique curve and that some are similar in shape but as MLVP offers such a variety of output options are some color spaces more suited to the MLV RAW spec than others?

AWPStar,

It may be interesting for you to know that over the last few months, I have been using Producer v. 3203 all the time with my amateur video clips shot with Magic Lantern RAW.  My favorite way of usage is for quick preview of my footage right from the CF/SD card using a USB card reader.  This I can do also on my old laptop while traveling.  I simply connect the card to the PC, highlight all clips on it and drag and drop them onto the Producer icon on my desktop.  They open and line up very fast in the Queue, regardless of resolution, bit depth and compression - amazing!  By clicking on everyone of them, I can see it in full size on the Producer window, check focus and play it back to see if there are corrupt frames, etc.  In this way, I can decide which clips to delete and which ones to keep.  I can also perform basic adjustments to selected clips and export them in ProRes Fast 4444 - my favorite export option, for further processing in Resolve.  This format reduces file size significantly, opens and plays well in Resolve and stands serious color corrections and grading while preserving image quality.

All in all, excellent work, AWPStar!  I can't wait to test your new build!

@AWPStar , Thanks for the cool update  ;)
Just started to test it  out , came across a small bug when the external monitor is active and you chance workspace the GUI display goes black but the external display still works .
To get it back I have to switch back to "Workspace" the GUI then comes back , enable the external display again all good then .

The other thing I notice (this may be the way it is ) if you play the file or just skim it , it only play in the external display not in the GUI , you have to disable
the external display to play file in the GUI/Workspace .
I on win7pro dual GPU's (GTX580's) the main display/GUI is connected to HDMI & my external display is on a DVI , both displays are at 1080 60p .

Thanks for the file association fix , it was a real pain before .

Not sure if you can implement this but it would be a good idea to have Test Pattern that in Legal Color Space e.g. HD/Rec709 (16-235) (could be a single frame) for the external monitor ,
reason for this to make sure the external monitor is accurate and in range . I know on my Asus ProArt 24" 1080p has a factory preset sRGB that can reproduce 98% of the color space , but it needed a small gamma tweak with my Datacolor colorimeter to be correct that I can trust to be in range when I'm grading . Nothing sucks more when you think you are in range then render out a h264 only to find out that the hi-light are blown out or the shadow are so crushed you kill detail & sharpness .
If you could have it displayed when you start the program and when you load mlv file  it toggles to the preview image from the GUI/Workspace.
Something like this below , If not it's just a Idea , there other workarounds but are very painful .

hi AWPStar,

one thing i noticed, you do not support compressed video files.

could you please honor the mlv_file_hdr_t.videoClass flags?
if the videoClass is exactly MLV_VIDEO_CLASS_RAW (0x01) then it is a normal uncompressed video.
for compressed or delta encoding, these flags are set:

#define MLV_VIDEO_CLASS_FLAG_LZMA    0x80
#define MLV_VIDEO_CLASS_FLAG_DELTA   0x40
#define MLV_VIDEO_CLASS_FLAG_LJ92    0x20

so you should be safe if you check the class for 0x01 and if it doesnt match, you can throw an error message.

indeed it supports. layer 8 bug.
it was the first post that says "latest version INTEL" which lead me to download a quite old version.
maybe i am not the only one who falls into this trap ;)

the class is kind of a bitmap.
the lowest 4 bits are the format bits where the upper 4 bits are some kind of encoding information.
keep it as you have it, its fine how you did it.

the bits are not used anymore. delta and LZMA were experiments to compress files for archiving.
noone probably ever used them.

Thanks @AWPStar , if finally loaded just exporting to prores 4444  right now as I write this .
But on the down side , on first run It crashed/no responds (Windows Blue Wheel of Death)  :P
So the second time I cleared all the ".idx" files and the a setting file then loaded it up , take very long time to get it to come up
Normally there's a progress bar that reads the file (somethingMb/s) on my raid or ssd it's 400-500 but here nothing , I notice on the bottom of the view screen
the frame count started to increase slowly , first 1400 them 3000 etc. ... until it hit 11299 frame around 2-3 minutes if not more -- very very slow
so slow I had to open task man to see if it hang up , but it was working slowly .
here the edited log  , also it seems slow exporting , I have the 30GB file on my Raid0 (4x2TB=8GB r/w @ 800MB/s @ 50% capacity (4GB free)
and rendering to the OS drive SSD(sata3) but only at 2.2 frames per second  (cpu-amd 8 core@ 4.8Ghz fx8350+8GB ram win7pro)
Is this normal speed?

but only at 2.2 frames per second
As you have cpu with 8 cores you can use 8 thread for rendering. Check settings->Preformance->Threads
Also, try to use ProRef Fast preset. Other two are pretty slow.

Quote
So the second time I cleared all the ".idx" files and the a setting file then loaded it up , take very long time to get it to come up
Is your disk compressed?
Please, check this. https://sourceforge.net/projects/mlvproducer/files/MLVProducer.exe/download
Remove orr rename *.idx file before.


Tell me if it works. I cannot test it because all me files(even huge) are loading at normal speed.

Hello AWPStar,

I have been using v.3261 quite a lot lately and I love it.  Now it renders my favorite ProResFast_4444 format really fast.  However, I noticed a malicious stability bug that, unfortunately, I am unable to reproduce.  Sometimes, after editing a clip and trying to export it using "Render Task", Producer will stop rendering after the second frame and will freeze.  Today, it happened with a 10-bit MLV file shot with the 7D at 1728x972 resolution.  If that happens, the only way to get out of Producer is through the Task manager.  This behavior is very annoying since it may happen after you have spent a lot of time editing several clips.  In that case, all your work is lost.  Happened twice on me already.  The funny thing is that restarting Producer does not fix the issue.  You have to restart the computer to get Producer render properly again. 

I have to say, I have been using v. 3203 for several months before replacing it with v. 3261.  I have never observed the above behavior before, with v. 3203.

Could you please take a look at v. 3261?  I really do not want to revert back to v. 3203 again.

Thank you and keep up your excellent work!

Hello AWPStar,

I have noticed a bug with v. 3354 of Producer.  When rendering MLV files shot at the full resolution of the sensor, such as timelapse sequences consisting of FRSPs taken with the Silent module, Producer exports them fine but fails to record the final file in the destination folder.  I have prepared a 950 MB MLV file shot with the Silent module of the 100D as a FRSP sequence (30 frames) for you to check and to see how Producer behaves at the end of the export.   Download link:

https://we.tl/BD5NQBikma

The link will be active for 7 days.

Also here:

https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=20025.925

I have provided some feedback on my comparative observations of Producer vs. MLVApp.  You may want to have a look at that.
 
Title: Re: MLVProducer: [v3200]
Post by: AWPStar on March 16, 2018, 12:00:35 PM
That's weird. When i export to ProRes it creates unreadable file(100D_30frames_Silent_Module_FRSP.mov). With any resolution, any frame rate...
h264 and mpeg2 works fine.

Hello.
I have a problem with presets made on one computer when opening on another. Tried on different versions for the last 2 months. The pattern found only in the path to the AdobeRGB.cslut file (C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\COLOR\data\cs\AdobeRGB.cslut). Versions on both computers are the same, but different operating systems (windows 10 and 7). What kind of information do I need to provide so that you can fix this bug?

Hi @AWPStar, do you know what algorithm is MLVPDM? How does it compare with AMaZE and IGV? Do you think these are too complex for video?
Also, just as suggestion too, Bart Goossens have some really interesting publications in this subject. These two, for example:

- An Overview of state-of-the-art denoising and demosaicking techniques: toward a unified framework for handling artifacts during image reconstruction (http://www.imagesensors.org/Past%20Workshops/2015%20Workshop/2015%20Papers/Sessions/Session_12/12-01_Goossens.pdf)

- "Computationally Efficient Locally Adaptive Demosaicing of Color Filter Array Images Using the Dual-Tree Complex Wavelet Packet Transform" (http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0061846)

I think the proposed "DTCWPT" algorithm would be very suitable for MLVProducer. His website seem to be this one (https://quasar.ugent.be/bgoossen/publications/).

Seems the thing is patented
no wonder, it looks REALLY GOOD

Anyone good enough in hard math and this mumbojumbo coding could develop a open version of this algorithm (?)

I also respectfully request some development of the demosaicing algorithm.  For me, it's the only thing really holding back this excellent program!

It tends to alias pretty badly on the edges of strong highlights.

On another note, I find that presets don't remember the green channel settings, such as "lift" (my favourite!)

I'm on windows 7-64, running version 3261alpha

Thanks!

Great app!  :)

However, I don't see GoPro Cineform as an export format option.

Is it possible or is there a plugin for it? 

I can get from .mlv->.raw->Cineform using mlv_dump and raw2gpcf (end up with .avi), but I need the Remove Focus Dots (chroma smoothing) feature to clear up pink/blue dots (I'm using a T5i).

Speaking of plugins, are they listed somewhere?

I used the installer from the 1st post which gives me 4 plugins (addnoise/lens_correct/reverse/TNR).

Thanks!

it supports 10 & 12bit   :D there are light files to work with , takes  little cpu power  to decode . I've been looking for a 12bit intermediate windows codec .
Is this something you could add ? it  open source from what i see .

Download on first post on page 1 mlvp.alpha.build3261 (https://sourceforge.net/projects/mlvproducer/files/mlvp.alpha.build3261.zip/download) then to update to the latest version (3354) you need to download just the "MLVProducer.exe" update file from here (https://sourceforge.net/projects/mlvproducer/files/MLVProducer.exe/download) then replace the old ".exe" with the new one , that's it.

I've just checked it out: no, it does not. And indeed, the preview is faster than MLVApp. It offers real-time preview on my machine (25fps) whereas MLVApp achieves ~18fps on the same MLV. Need to have a closer look.

I think that depends on which debayer is used, and what other settings you activate or deactivate! On playback it looks like MLVProducer uses a fast and easy debayer - MLVApp uses bilinear as standard (a faster algorithm comes in next version). On export with the best debayer available the result may look different (on my machine 1.9fps (MLVProducer) vs 5fps (MLVApp)). But I am not sure if it is fair to compare the two algorithms, because they are different - all the realization and concept is completely different! ;) When doing nearly the same: chosing the fastest debayer + a LUT brings on both programs 5fps at playback for me.

It's not fair, but there are two different cases:
1. If you need to see the best quality of your color correction - slow preview and the best algorithm.
2. But if you want to sort out 100500 of video clips and pick the good one, then you need 100% realtime preview even if it is with the worst algorithm and with lower resolution (as in Premier Pro etc. - 1/1 full resolution, 1/2 half resolution, 1/4 resolution).

The weakest part of MLV in Canon cameras - no possibility to preview footage in realtime. Few years ago MlRawViewer did this pretty good but now it is abandoned... ((

Maybe you're right.
It worked smoothly on my desktop PC and laptop ASUS k56cb.
Actually it still works, but lacks the compatibility with a new MLV algorithms.

The lack of real time preview still is a big problem  :(

Hi,

Just :  THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Quality of your work is amazing and thank you to share it !

Now, I use your smart and ergonomic software [v3354] in my workflow for : convert MLV to DNG and killing the fu**ing pink dot !
eos 700d - firmware 1.1.5 - experimental ML 1.1.5 with 10/12bits RAW
Now i can shoot at 1728x736@23,976 (2.35:1 ratio) in 10bit RAW.
(Before it was a nightmare : 1280 resolution / ratio 16:9 in 14bit raw only worked to kill pink dot)

So : BIG BIG BIG ENORMOUS THANKS !!!

Best regards from France

Hi everyone,

Following my previous message, I have 2 newbies questions :
[ english is not my native langage, sorry for langage mistake ]
[ i read all the 43 pages before posting ]

A) I use Canon EOS 700D - ML 1.1.5 - MLV RAW - 1728 x 736 @23.976 10bits
B) My goal is to export my MLV to DNG the more "FLAT" possible. I use DAVINCI RESOLVE to edit the colorimetry. My hypothesis is that "more flat will be the video" "better for DaVinci Resolve it will be"
[ I hope, first, that this starting hypothesis is good ]

Question 1. When importing MLV files, MLVproducer automatically sets the exposure to +0.77 and Saturation to +100. I do not understand why ... Should I keep this parameter or should I change the settings to 0?  Is it an objective or an subjective choice/variable ? Do this parameter got an influence for DaVinciResolve ?

Question 2. When I import MLV files, MLVproducer automatically sets the "converting to color space" on AdobeRGB. I would like to know why. Is this a good choice for the canon eos 700d 10bit raw? Is it an objective or an subjective choice/variable ? Do this parameter got an influence for DaVinciResolve ?

Thank you in advance for your answers. Best regards from France.

  You can change exposure, but it will affect only on image settings.
You can disable this feature. Settings->Image->Match to DNG out

  Same. It doesn't matter for dng.
You can also change default color space. Settings->Image->Default Color Space

Thanks you for your answer.

RAW and DNG are new for me and i have to learn more about it, technically. I will take time to understand more deep on the "non-destructive" concept of it. it's not clear in my mind ( raw, dng, LUT, colorspace translation for raw dng canon ml [ cinemaDNG, bmd film, BMD film to cinelog , cinelog to loc c, and final LUT export etc.... ]. I have a lot of noise on my black levels, i have to work on my exposure [ETTR etc... ]... In conclusion, i have a lot of work, test, etc... to understand and build a valid workflow to shoot with my eos 700d + davinci resolve.  ...and determine if it's a better way FOR ME compared to H264 way. (I have written a short film and i think shoot it next year.)

First step for me was to convert the RAW to DNG without "newbie" errors. ( and killing this pinks dots... ) - other softs don't worked well for me -

I am very happy to have found your software. I think I adopted it as the first phase of my workflow. I renew my thanks and congratulations for your high quality work and the time you took to answer my beginner's questions.
 
Best Regards
Vince

This is "normal" in 1x recording mode (non-crop) and mostly happens at hard contrast edges. Using some debayer algorithms may increase or lower such artifacts. In MLV-Producer and MLVApp you can select between multiple debayer algorithms... give that a try. In MLV-Producer I don't know exactly which one is best in this situation, in MLVApp it should be IGV.
I tried removing the vertical stripes in both, MLV-Producer and MLVApp. MLVApp removed them completely and the algorithm is opensource. In MLV-Producer it was removed ~50% only... but maybe the MLVApp algorithm (coming from another ML tool here in the forum, forgot which one) can be added to MLV-Producer.

Okay, I know that false colors fix it pretty good in MLV-Producer.
Yeah you see the verticle stripes is failing. But why I like MLV-producer more is that I can select hot/bad pixels manually. The auto function in MLV-App add a small artifacts in the high contrast edges cuz it thinks that a bad pixel.
Do you know the different between the two interpolation mode?

@ AWPStar , I've been developing (with help from a1ex) a 720p squeezed mode , 1888x704@48.05fps  (https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=19336.msg209658#msg209658) on 5D2
In which mlvproducer does a great job with it , specially the aliasing & false color filters but I have a small issue
It may be the way I adjusted the image but I get pinkish hi-lights in the almost blown out areas with the 3/5 un-squeeze .
I did a comparison between  After Effects , MLVProducer & MLVApp 1.4v  (https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=19336.msg209825#msg209825)-- Out all three you're App retain all the detail in the
aliasing areas of the test pattern image plus did the best job of recovering detail , while the moiré pattern had the pinkish hi-light
problems . MLVApps did the better job of reducing pinkish hi-light in the moiré patterns but lost detail in the aliasing areas .
A.E. was the least desirable with data missing/holes in the test pattern , it doesn't handle aliasing very well I wouldn't use it .
Here the test MLV from my 5D2 1880x704_48fps_M23-2150.MLV (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1u-bmXVgluiMQIA__VEgs2mUXVhE60rUw/view?usp=sharing) 500MB

Hello -- I just installed the latest version of ML Producer (on windows 10) and it's fantastic. Thanks for this great piece of software that finally makes magiclantern quick and easy to use.

Only small problem I have is perhaps with the LUTs. I am using the Canon t4i (650d). Although the footage looks good right away, I can't seem to get the color quite right. Reds are always a bit orange, for example. I tried the "Hunter's" LUT for the Canon 5d, but that's not at all right.

Is there a LUT for the t*i series cameras? When I previously shot raw footage and when through the more laborious process with compiling images from dngs into footage, I was able to get perfect color. I am just struggling to learn how to do this in ML Producer. Any tips much appreciated.

Hi, this software preserves highlights a bit better than other mlv tools out there but i have one question about 11 bit lossless mlv from canon M, when i import it then its a bit darker than lets say 14 bit lossless.
Is it normal ? Any way to change that ? I tried different method to reconstruct green but it just helps tiny bit and stretches histogram.
On 14 bit histogram is nicely distributed but on 11 bit lossless its squeezed to half its length.

First post here, congrats on a wonderful piece of software!

I did find an issue with build 3369. When attempting to render output to common H.264 I get an error dialog "Run-time error'53': File not found: mlvpctl.dll". Note that closing the dialog will close the software UI but ffmpeg.exe continues to run in background and must be manually terminated before MLVProducer.exe can be restarted.

The render function works fine in builds 3200 and 3261 (and "mlvpctl.dll" is not in those builds).

I also noticed the screen behavior changed between 3200 and 3261. In 3200 the X/Y proportion is maintained when stretching the UI. If the UI is too small to accommodate the image, it truncates. In 3261 and up, the X/Y proportion is not maintained when the UI is stretched and the image stretches with the UI frame. Is there a way to set it to maintain the X/Y proportion and resize the image to fit the available area when stretching the frame? (If not, no big deal)

Does anyone know of an output format from MLVP that can be imported to Premier Pro CS6? I realize the problem is with CS6 (old) since the H.264 outputs work fine in everything else but what I want to use them in....

I found an older post here mentioning H.264 420 but no luck.


[edit]

I found this thread https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1465247 in the Adobe forums and per the "answer" post created a .bat file with:

ffmpeg.exe -i "M09-1518.mov" -vcodec copy -acodec copy "M09-1518.mp4"

...and the resulting MP4 loads in to CS6 just fine. So I believe MLVP could add an output option to tell ffmpeg to create MP4 and it would work?

At least I have a workaround, but I am willing to test as much as needed if you can add it!  :)

I can confirm that both H.264 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 rendered as MP4 (using input resolution = output resolution), do indeed work in v3370 and the files import into Adobe CS6 with no issues!

additional testing info:

I noticed when changing the output res larger, this only works when rendering to H.264 AVI (both MOV and MP4 don't work, not a problem for me).

I believe ffmpeg doesn't like doing H.264 4:4:4 as MP4 since trying to convert from AVI to MP4 using the conversion mentioned earlier didn't work. In MLVP trying to render H.264 4:4:4 as MP4 creates a tmp video file in the target folder and then deletes it at the end of rendering (which is fine imo if this is invalid in ffmpeg).

I tried to say thank you with your PayPal Donate button but it says "This recipient is currently unable to receive money." Let me know when it works and I'll be happy to donate!  :)

best regards

Producer also works with anamorphic rewired footage from the 100D.  Horizontal resolution needs to be multiplied by 3 in the Output menu to get proper export aspect ratio.  Focus dots are nicely removed too.  Nice work, AWPStar !

Can we update the focus pixel maps in a way that they affect only the areas where those pixels are (the central part of the image, not the whole frame).
May I ask the author to please read this post (https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=16054.msg216988#msg216988)?

A FYI about MLVProducer , if you have any 3x1  uncompressed mlv's e.g. 4096x592 like from the 5D2
you can export the correct vertical by adjusting export size (see the blue & red box hi-lighted) and to see the uncompressed vertical just select
the upper left top bar (see the yellow & green box I hi-lighted) to Stretch.
It dose export any compressed codec e.g. tiff , png etc. with correct vertical  ... but not dng's .
