Title: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: a1ex on October 11, 2012, 01:55:31 PM
What are nightly builds?
- Nightly builds are binaries compiled daily from the latest source code, by an automatic program.
- Download: http://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/ (http://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/)
- Feature comparison matrix (http://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/features)
- Changeset log on Bitbucket (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/changesets)

Update by RenatoPhoto (Oct 1, 2013):

Delete ALL old files from card i.e. autoexec.bin and the entire ML directory and replace by new files.  Do not mix old with new.


Who should use nightly builds?
- Anyone who likes to live on the bleeding edge, wants to help ML development and doesn't care about some features being broken.

Why should I use a nightly build?
- To try the latest features (e.g. you have requested a feature and it was implemented).
- To check if a bug was fixed.
- To help us with testing (please report any bugs you find (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/issues)).

What are the disadvantages of nightly builds?
- You are running untested code. The source code is updated daily, and development sometimes progresses very quickly. We can't test every little change on all cameras, so a few things may not work as expected.
- No documentation - the only help for new features is a small line of text, and ML source code.
- No guarantees - if it breaks, you get to keep both pieces. Well, the same is true for stable releases - but at least, the chances of things going wrong should be much lower.

What's new?
- See the feature comparison matrix (http://nanomad.magiclantern.fm/jenkins/features.html).
- Browse the changeset log on Bitbucket (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/changesets).
- Look for feature requests (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?board=24.0) marked as "DONE". You might find some cool stuff there.
- The list of changes is huge - if you want a nice summary, you need to wait for the next stable release.

Will it work on my camera?
- Hopefully yes.
- Make sure you download the correct version for your camera.
- Some cameras are no longer maintained by anyone, so a lot of things are probably broken. If you find broken stuff, and you have some basic C skills, some spare time, and you like the idea of programming your own camera, give it a try (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=991.0). Patches welcome.

Anything else?
- If you run bleeding edge code, we kindly ask you to give something back - bug reports (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/issues). Tell us what is not working, so we can fix it.

Enjoy!

Not exactly a bug but.... I cannot open the PDF files...
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: nanomad on October 11, 2012, 07:34:33 PM
I bet you didn't notice they were 0kb  ;)

As it's clearly written, the nightly builds come without documentation. This includes the pdf files (which are 0kb just to avoid complaints from the build system)
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: AriLG on October 11, 2012, 08:02:07 PM
Oh $hit... No I didn't.

I'm so accustomed to immediately open the user guide that I didn't noticed the size.

Thanks and Cheers !

Well... probably it's not very hard to patch the "make zip" command to ignore missing pdf's in a silent way.

I think so
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: sshanky on October 14, 2012, 11:03:23 PM
if the only .fir file in the directory (e.g. 10/14/12 build) is named "1100D", should I skip it if I am using it on a 550D? In other words, are the nightlies only for specific cameras? Is there a way to find the most recent nightly for a specific camera model?

Also, to install, is it as simple as just adding the new .fir file onto the card and putting it back into the camera?

Thanks
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: nanomad on October 14, 2012, 11:46:23 PM
The .fir is used to enable the bootflag on the camera and card, nothing else. The .fir provided is for the 1100D only because it was not in the 2.3 release. You can use the 2.3 release fir if you need them on the other cameras
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: a1ex on October 16, 2012, 09:36:07 AM
Quick Q: what GCC version you are using for nightly builds? And it's 32-bit or 64-bit?
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: nanomad on October 16, 2012, 10:19:00 AM
The compiler I'm using is the one from ARM that can be found on https://launchpad.net/gcc-arm-embedded/+download
Version: gcc-arm-none-eabi-4_6-2012q2-20120614.tar.bz2
Architecture: 32bit
Optimizations: disabled (no -O3 or anything else)

Incidentally, all my 1100D builds have been using -O3 and working without issues


Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: a1ex on October 16, 2012, 10:20:05 AM
The only reason for disabling -O3 was this problem on 500D: https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/issue/1468/500d-unable-to-record-with-audio-and

(which is actually a Canon bug - when drawing too fast, it gets err70).

CAn someone pls answer this question.. If I go to the nightly builds, Do I only have to ad the latest build and all the changes are on that? So in other words are all the changes from the previous builds on the latest build?
Title: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Francis on November 25, 2012, 02:24:12 AM
Yes, the nightly builds contain the current source.  The only reason something from a previous build isn't on in the nightly is if there were problems and the it was disabled.

In the source code, you need to fix it and compile it yourself.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Glaziers on November 27, 2012, 02:38:23 PM
and how to do it please tell me (at least hint)

can be anyone have the old version

Post by: scrax on November 27, 2012, 05:20:57 PM
and how to do it please tell me (at least hint)

First you need to be able to compile ML by yourself: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=991.0

Keep in mind that it's not enabled because it's not working and gives hangs, so before trying it you will need to be able to write code, find bugs and fix them.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: jbuy41 on January 17, 2013, 10:55:44 PM
Using the latest build and trying stack focus.  I keep geting "soft focus limit reached", and nothing happens.  Have a 550D and using a Sigma 50-200 HSM with stablizer.

Hey Alex and everyone else,

Sorry for the long time being inactive. I started by own video production company, and it's been very busy.
I'm going to test this nightly build to see if I would use them for commercial projects. I'll let you know my experience.

Cheers,
Jordy!

Newbie question here...on the nightly download page the title of the download file includes the camera type "5D2" but after I download it and open it only .fir file is for the "1100D-105.fir".  Where is the .fir for the 5D2 or will this work across all camera listed on the download page?

Thanks

Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here

Step1 Install stable
Step2 Overwrite with nightly

Use the 5D2 fir from the stable release (2.3). That's just an installation file. The autoexec.bin file is the actual nightly build.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: adamchicago on January 23, 2013, 03:46:40 AM
Whew! ...thanks for the clarification you may have just saved me a bricking;) 

And for anyone else here's what you do to install the latest nightly:

1. You have to have installed the latest stable Magic Lantern build per the initial install instructions if you haven't yet
2. After you have the stable ML version on your camera go to nightly build download location and download the nightly zip file
3. On your camera card delete the current "autoexec.bin" file (that came with the stable ML install)
4. Grab ONLY the "autoexec.bin" file from the nightly zip you downloaded and put it on your camera card in place of the one you just deleted
NOTE: you use the same autoexec.bin file for all cameras listed on the nightly download LINK name
5. Put the card back in your camera and start up normally
6. Your done...nightly build is on your camera now:)

NOTE: there are other files that will be included in the downloaded nightly zip file but you only need the autoexec.bin if installing after having the stable ML on your camera

I only did this once, but successfully, so any experts please chime in if I have something wrong...I hold no liability if this doesn't work for you:(


Title: R: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: nanomad on January 23, 2013, 06:55:14 AM
You have to replace all the files from the zip not just the auto exec
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: sutobe on January 23, 2013, 02:04:04 PM
If you replace the menuidx.dat you can't use the documentary anymore....better said it starts always with 404 and on the next page its the documentary's first page
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: adamchicago on January 26, 2013, 06:13:41 PM
I replaced just the auto exec, per advice above, and works perfectly so I'm sticking with that method until I'm convinced otherwise.

Am wrong to believe if I replaced the 5D2 fir file with the 1100D-105.fir file that my 5D2 wouldn't work properly?

It would be awesome if the ML developers would post the exact steps that apply to all camera's the nightly's work with because there's several different methods being communicated on this thread that may or may not brick your camera.
Title: R: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: nanomad on January 27, 2013, 07:54:40 PM
Last time I checked I was a ML dev and I posted the correct procedure multiple times already. If docs are missing is because they are out of date (as the download page clearly says)

About firs: the camera refuses to run an incompatible fir and they also have different names so I don't see how you could overwrite yours
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: adamchicago on January 31, 2013, 05:00:22 AM
First, you guys are doing an absolute AWESOME JOB with Magic Lantern development, response to user input on and on! ...and I cannot say enough great things about this app:)  Anything I bring up here is just in relation to understanding the nightly process so I don't brick my camera...by my own fault.

Just for clarity because this is the part that scares me (and others) the most:

For the nightly, if I delete the 5D2-212.fir from my 5D2's memory card and replace that file with the nightly's 1100D-105.fir file (along with the other nightly files) then put it back into my 5D2, it will still perform normally even though it's a different camera model's fir file? ...that's what the instructions say, replace all the files with the nightly files which include a different camera model's fir file (1100D vs 5D2).

Thank you very much for all your help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:):):):)

Title: nightly request...bulb ramping
Post by: adamchicago on January 31, 2013, 05:11:57 AM
A few nightly's back you guys made some improvements to the Timelapse ramping where there are now two options: "Smooth ramping" and "LRT Holy Grail 1EV" and the latter has worked great so far.  BUT would it be possible to give the user the ability to change the 1EV setting to any EV value you want?  So you would pick "LRT Holy Grail" and then have the option set the EV value to anything from zero up to I don't know maybe 10...in 0.2 increments maybe.  Frankly I would like to try EV1.5 and EV2.0.

I believe the higher the EV value, the fewer bramp-exposure jumps during the timelapse...is that correct?  The fewer bramp jumps the easier the post edit is and smoother the entire exposure curve is;)

Thanks:)

I suppose it's set to 1EV since is the best value that LRTimelapse can handle to remove flicker, that's why it's called LRT Holy Grail

Are there any chances of adding 5D3 support to the nightly builds? AFAIK, the original blocking issue which was keeping it out has been dealt with.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: rufustfirefly on January 31, 2013, 09:11:08 PM
To clarify my last post:

From what I understand about the ML booting/loading process for nightlies, there's a "loader" FIR file (which we shouldn't tamper with) and the AUTOEXEC.BIN file (which contains the actual ML code). This relies on there being a "stable" FIR release, which seem to weigh in at about 64k apiece. Right now, the only FIR releases available for the 5D3 are the ones in the alpha releases. The Alpha 3 release weighs in at well over 256k, and has no companion AUTOEXEC.BIN file. I believe that the reason for a "missing" AUTOEXEC.BIN file in the 5D3 Alpha releases were given a while back.

I tried loading a compiled version of the 5D3.113 build onto my Mark III -- but it currently ignores the AUTOEXEC.BIN file and simply loads the Alpha 3 version. I hadn't seen anyone else in the forums complaining about a similar problem, so it could be a "pebcak" thing -- but I figured I'd ask for it to be rolled into the nightlies.

Try the developer FIR, make the card bootable and should work.

Post by: rufustfirefly on February 01, 2013, 03:21:30 PM
Thank you for pointing out that you already released a proper "bootflag" FIR file for the 5D3; I apologize for having missed it in the original post.

Is there anything which is keeping the 5D3 from being included in the nightly builds, now that (AFAIK) the major stability issue has been dealt with?
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: a1ex on February 02, 2013, 01:48:34 PM
I'd like a bit more feedback from those who tried the bootflag FIR (just look at 650D thread to see why).

Also, the installer is not as user friendly as on the other cameras (it can't yet make the cards bootable because of the dual card slot). If that's not a problem, I'll try to add it.

I took this build to a commercial project on the Canon 5D mark 2. Everything worked fine, had no crashes.

One thing I noticed tho, is that when you record with headphones and audio input. After the recording is done. The signal doesn't come into the camera anymore. The meters are not showing anything, and you can't hear anything.

I had to take the headphones jack out, and insert it back to get everything working again.

This happend each time after recording.

Alex, is there anything more to do with HDMI output to LCD monitor?

With the force AVG, it's been a big improvement. But it only fills like 3/5th of my screen.
Should I posts pictures with different settings? Or is it very hard to improve the HDMI output?
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: a1ex on February 08, 2013, 10:42:12 AM
In the VGA mode it's possible to fill the screen, but it would look choppy (like anamorphic preview). I'm not sure if it's worth the effort.

I was also able to scale the image vertically via DIGIC. It won't improve the resolution (it will just double the pixels). This can be more promising. It's still only useful for 720 mode, and my monitor already does this scaling, so I didn't see any point to implement it.

I installed the latest build (14/02) and tested some things. Everything worked at first sight. And I have to give a thumbs up for the new menu style. I really like it.

Tomorrow I have a corporate shoot. And like alwyas I'm going to do it on a nightly :p

I'll keep you guys updated!


UPDATE: No bugs encountered :-) .. A whole day of shooting on the 14/2 build. Camera also shutted down perfectly each time. No crashes, no nothing. The junkie menu is really handy!

Good job development!!

Thanks Alex, It works now!

So no prob with the 2.3 next on movie style...

( btw : even it is on the canon menu fault the wiki could explain the way to re enter the picture style in movie mode cause it is somewhat hidden and tricky)

Best and long life to ML!

Hi everybody, i have a 5d mk2 and a 5dmk3 and a 7D. I love ML 8) and its working nice and good as the alphas on the 7D and the 5Dmk3. Now I would love to check the nightly builds on the Mk3 and 7D but I can not get it to boot from the autoexec.bin  :-[ :( . When I start the camera with  a bootable CF ( tried al different bootcodes from the EOS-Card utility) the camera stays dead. Only way of using ML is via fir into the Alpha... :o

 I tried the bootflag.fir as well but there seems to be something either I am missing or are the nightly builds not build for the 5DMk3 and 7 D ?

 I would like to have fps override and the automatic HDR-Shooting mode from the 5Dmk2 as well as playing more with the new pico...

And the Mk2 is nearly sold and already reboxed.... :o ;)

Thanks Matthias von Mutius, I am with ML since the early days with Trammel...

Hi Alex,

I shoot some photos with ML autoISO ON
(eos 50d + 430exII)  and normally (without ML) I would had ISO400,
but with ML it is ISO100 - which is cool.  ;)

request:
Is it however possible to set a new upper ISO limit?
Canon autoISO goes only to 1600, so I would like to have a chance to raise it to ML maximum ISO
(2000, 2500, 3200... )

bug possibly:
Back to my shooting - I took 8 photos in a row,
7 is 50mm, 1/250s, f/5,6, flash on, EV+1/3, ISO100
but 1 is unexpectedly 50mm, 1/250s, flash on, f/5,6, EV+1/3, ISO1600 ?

Not yet, but there's an unofficial build in the 5D3 thread, you can try that.

Wow in first time xD, a really great job for this Nightly build.
But i have two problems:
first in a fevrary builds in 600D, with the gradual expo, he compensated with ISO and it was very well, but in a april builds it compensates with shutter... speeds up to 1/4000= bad video!

Secondly: a super function headphone monitor, i have a bug, when i record all are ok, but when i go to play mode and return on live view i heard nothing, and must disable mode and reactivate

Thank for your job and a great tool: Magic lantern!

It should only compensate with shutter if iso is already at extreme values.

So, I have the april 30th nightly build on my 5d3 camera. I tried downloading the newest nightly build(may 8th I believe) and replacing the autoexec.bin file currently on my memory card with the one from this new, updated nightly build. My camera will simply NOT boot. Anyone know what the problem is? I noticed that the nightly build doesn't have '5d3' in the name, but neither did the parole 30th build(that's currently installed and working on my camera). Shouldn't it be as simple as replacing the autoexec.bin file on the card?

I read that. That's how I figured out how to install the nightly build. But I've got the April 30th one. When I replace the files with the updated nightly and put that autoexec.bin that YOU posted back on the card, it simply just gives me the april 30th build again. I was thinking I'd be able to update to the May 8th nightly.

Greetings fellow ML'ers.

I've been using ML(v2.3) on my 550D since it was released and have finally summoned the courage to try the nightly builds ( I have the 2013MAY14 version installed),,, have to say I really like the new UI.
I'm still exploring this version and I have a question,,, I apologise if this has been covered elsewhere, I tried searching for the answer but didn't find anything relevant.

OK rambling over, here's the question.

Do we still have the ability to hide specific menu items in the nightly builds, like we could in the v2.3 stable release?

If yes,,, how?
If no,,, no problem  ;)


Edit :
OK scrap that question, I found the menu option to allow customization of the menu  :-[
I'll get my coat.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: SeaLight on May 16, 2013, 04:15:46 PM
I must be missing something...

First time ML user, but I've been following ML for over a year now.

I've searched through the 30 page thread with no help for a straight forward update to nightly builds including the bootable card.

As for updating to firmware, I downgraded my firmware on my 5DM3 to 1.1.3 to be able to put the latest nightly build on it.

- Downloaded the 1.1.3 Alpha 3
- Dragged the ml-5D3-113.fir and ML folder onto my CF card.
- Booted camera
- Update firmware in menu
- Works perfectly
- Downloaded ML 2.3
- Dragged all files from the extracted .zip folder on the CF card
- Booted camera
- Update firmware in menu
- Camera still says it's running 2.3
- Put CF card back in computer
- Delete 113 firmware on CF card
- Boot camera
- Update firmware
- "Firmware cannot be found. Please take out the battery"

What am I doing wrong to update to the nightly build??

Did anyone else notice the audio menu order is mixed.

I just pulled the latest commits, and compiled a build for the 600D and noticed the audio menu items are mixed compared to all previous builds.

I think the previous menu order was much more intuitive.

just wondering ....

Hi, got my 60D for almost a month now. The first thing i did after i got it was updating it with ML Fw 2.3. After 3 weeks of playing with it i decided to apply the latest nightly build. The problem is I can't seem to find the sound record in FPS override.
Has it been removed?

TIA.

just pulled the latest commits (5-24), updated and compiled for 600D.  Replaced 5-18 autoexec.bin with newly compiled bin and camera will not start.  LED continually blinks.  Removed battery, replaced .bin with original, camera starts up fine.

Did a make clean, re-compiled for 600D, and tried new .bin file in camera ... same thing, LED blinks continually and camera will not turn on.

Went back to 5-18 .bin file ... back in working order.

Hello to everyone.

I have to report two issues with all nightly builds i have tried and 600d that are not happening with version v2.3.

First, camera wakes itself from standby power save mode without touching any buttons. That happens quite regularly, few seconds to few minutes after it turns off screen and sensor.

Second problem is bigger. Recording stops automatically after few seconds or few minutes. I have restart option turned on so it restarts automatically. This happens approximately once in every 20 recordings. It was happening always after few seconds, but with the last nightly build (May 30) it started to happen after one or two minutes also. It is a big problem and it could ruin some important shots... I have Sandisk class 10 cards. It never happens with 2.3. with the same card and all the same settings. I also never touch any bitrate controls and i was testing with freshly formatted cards. I really like all audio controls with nightly builds, but for important shootings i have to go to 2.3 : (.

Just to mention, I also use Rode Videomic pro. I fiddle a lot with analog gain and mic boost (not during recording).. It might be connected, who knows.

I'm running a freshly compiled 5-30 build with movie restart on without any problems.  I recorded 30+ minutes yesterday on two cameras and restart feature worked fine. 

Have you tried a fresh install, clearing all canon settings and deleting your ML config file?

Not sure about your camera waking problem ... do you have auto shutdown turned off in canon menus?

If I am the the only one with this problems, then great. for everyone else... not for me : )

But just to clarify, restart function works fine on my camera also, but once in a while (not always, and i cant see any pattern) recording stops automatically after just few seconds or minutes, and then restart function kicks in. What happens is the same thing that happens after you reach 12 minutes mark.

I reinstalled many times. But just one question, is there a way to fresh install nightly build without having to install v2.3 first? My workflow is to install v2.3 and then to copy and replace with files from nightly build.

Thnx.

Post by: deletedAcc.0021 on May 31, 2013, 07:33:44 PM
yeah, you just need the .fir file from 2.3 stable and you can install from the nightly build.

Try turning off all features and enable them one at a time, starting with your "movie restart".  It might make it easier to determine whats going on.

Currently missing the "RAW Video" option from today's nightly build.

Let me clarify things a little:

This special section of Nightly Builds was created for those cameras that have STABLE features and for which there are new features implemented that could try and test.  Unfortunately the RAW stuff is still very raw  :D and has not been ported to all these stable applications. 

Also this Nightly Builds does not support some of the new development for 5D3, 6D, 7D. 

To add to the confusion you must have read about the latest compiles for RAW, this is not same as the Nightly Builds but people confuse these two.  The latest compiles for RAW can be found in the development threads specific to each camera.

So if you want RAW then read try this:

RAW video & ML -- Beginners Guide and FAQ -- READ FIRST
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=5520.0

Please note that this is found in the Tutorials and Creative Uses which has lots of info for RAW stuff.

And for you, most importantly read our Forum Rules and follow them to make sure that our boards are not filled with unstructured comments and questions that mislead other people as well as our developers.

Forgive my ignorance but is raw video enabled in this nightly build for the mark II??  If not how may I get a hold of the appropriate update??  Thank you!

I understand about develop something like a New ML with Raw features depends a lot of details and it´s not easy like press rec button. But maybe have an idea about when a nigtly build  could be for use (ML plus RAW). Any idea? month, six month? thanks!

Hello to everyone.

I have to report two issues with all nightly builds i have tried and 600d that are not happening with version v2.3.

First, camera wakes itself from standby power save mode without touching any buttons. That happens quite regularly, few seconds to few minutes after it turns off screen and sensor.

Second problem is bigger. Recording stops automatically after few seconds or few minutes. I have restart option turned on so it restarts automatically. This happens approximately once in every 20 recordings. It was happening always after few seconds, but with the last nightly build (May 30) it started to happen after one or two minutes also. It is a big problem and it could ruin some important shots... I have Sandisk class 10 cards. It never happens with 2.3. with the same card and all the same settings. I also never touch any bitrate controls and i was testing with freshly formatted cards. I really like all audio controls with nightly builds, but for important shootings i have to go to 2.3 : (.

Just to mention, I also use Rode Videomic pro. I fiddle a lot with analog gain and mic boost (not during recording).. It might be connected, who knows.

I think I may be experiencing the same problem. When I record with sound the buffer increases in equivalents of 10% until the camera stops recording. However I am not messing with the bitrate function, it's still set to 'Default.' When I disable sound it works just fine of course. But I never had this problem with 2.3.

I've had ML v2.3 installed on my T3i for about a year now and I really love it. If I ever wanted to go back to 2.3, all I have to do is overwrite the autoexec.bin from 2.3 right? I have a shoot coming up and I'd rather be on the safe side and use v2.3 (Sorry, still little bit of a noob here.)

btw, I'm also enjoying the new video functions from the nightly build like vignetting, I use my T3i as webcam and it's cool to have all these features built into the camera so I can play around with the effects when webcamming. (:

Hello, I installed recent nightly build and noticed that auto exposure ramping was removed from intervalometer menu. Previous version I had (march 24 build) had it. Camera is 550D. Was it replaced by something else or moved somewhere? I can't find it anymore. Thanks.

Yes, use ETTR + post deflicker.

I didn't have a chance to try it yet outside though, but on the 50 test frames I've tried for testing, there was zero flicker (even if the actual exposures were 4 stops apart).

I don't know of any lately builds untill RAW waked up the 50D. It's still bleeding edge but i think it's been tested quite a lot lately; https://bitbucket.org/GregoryOfManhattan/magic-lantern/downloads

If you try the one with most downloads (09june13) - i suppose that's the most tested build lately. But it's mainly made and tested for RAW-Video.

EDIT: Now I see that 50D is a part of the Nightly build without RAW-Video. So you can ignore my incompetence :-X

Since 600D Audio TEST release Topic is locked, i will be free to post one suggestion here:

Since in 600D Mic boost is much cleaner than Audio gain (It is conclusion from users on this forum also), it would be usefull to have Mic boost available in Arrow/SET shortcut menu instead of Audio gain. To clarify, it would be much better better if -Rec and Rec+ buttons in Arrow/Set shortcuts would control Mic boost, rather than Audio gain, as they do now.

Thank you!

Can't wait to get ML working on my new 650D.  Seems there has been a lot of hard graft, blood, sweat and tears to get to this point.
However, I've tried everything including firmware upgrade to 1.04, and    ...nothing.  It doesn't work.
Mind you I'm no techie and the instructions scattered around the place seem somewhat complex and convoluted.

Is there a .zip file I can download, copy to my SD card and load up on the 650D.  Anything more than that is going to confuse me, me thinks !!

Many thanks in advance for any help,
Jon

I am confused, help. :P

I have installed the ML2.3 several times already and no problem at all.

Then I wished to try something more and I've got (within others) these links:

 https://bitbucket.org/OtherOnePercent/tragic-lantern-2.0/downloads  (suggested latest build SixThirty)

I unziped it and I found several files, to be copied on the SD included the autoexec.bin ( weight much lighter than the ML2.3), only  the original ML directory structure in my camera  doesn't match with the structure indicated in the TL instruction.

Anyway, I've got it working in some way but, I dropped it and went back to ML2.3, because the menu structure is completely different (too much for me to start learning a new menu again).

Then I've got another link (after serching/reading alot)  that is this:

https://bitbucket.org/OtherOnePercent/tragic-lantern/downloads/autoexec.bin.EXfat.600D.Latest


That is actually still on my camera and I am testing.(no problem until now) only is, that I noted that the date
of the post ,from where I've got the link is Sept.2012.

Can please someone tell me what I am missing/confusing, and point me to the latest update for the 600D? :)

I have read the 35 page post about RAW on 600D , among other countless readings, that's a bt hard for me, since I am only speak weblish, not actually english.  :-X

I experienced issues with both installations

With Sixthirty I've got so low quality video  (big square artifact in big blocks, with bad colors) even with every ML option disabled, also I've got the sRAW issue (later I read the solution about it, but I couldn't even remember it right now, moreover I learned there are a lot of trouble with RAW, so I decided to go for an easier step, :P
At this point I found the EXfat.600D.Latest

at the begining I was much more enthusiast,since menu structure looks much more friendly to me, then I tried to shot few video and I encountered the two known issues (camera blocked/error 70(?))that at the moment put me in panic for the risk of camera damage :o >:( ;D, but seems I am lucky, and no consequences.
I then reinstalled the 2.3 version found in the main ML, everything worked as usual, much relaxed.

Now  I've  found and have just installed the 2.3NEXT, build 07-06-2013:menu are familiar :).
Now I am checking the menu, I'm getting error while trying load modules (they are inside Module folder...)
later I will try to take some shot to see what happen.

Any suggestion about module issue welcome (I am shure is written somewhere but, please do not ask me to go throught the 35 page posts  ;D

thanks and
No word to expressmy admiration for the amazing work.   
ML forever.

First sorry, pardon, forgive me,apologizes, shame on me etc......( :-[   I misunderstood your question: You referred to the download in the first post in the thread, while I  to the first download I made as mentioned in my first post, or so.)




I got this error:
 tcc: error:undefined symbol 'edmac_copy_rectangle_finish ... [E] failed to link modules

I made a search and I've found one post about it, but don't know what they are talking about... :-[

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I installed (after cleaning-formatting-etc the card- ::) the JUL7 ver. but still have the same error.

That's odd. I strictly follow the procedure so I argue I'am missing something somewhere but,what? 

I remember I was able to load the modules with no errors two days ago, when I've installed the SixThirty version.. ()

 ??? but Sixthirty build is it stored in the "WITH RAW video section", while the ML2.3NEXT version is in the " NO-RAW video section".   :o....  confusion.

Does having Modules enabled in the ML2.3NEXT turn on the RAW video ?

Does having such errors, affects any ML functionality?

Are such version interchangeable? (peraphs, could I copy the Sixthyrti modules folder  into in ML2.3NEXT..or it is armful for the camera?).

Yes, I see, it appear that I am making a cloud of dust: don't worry,  it is just me, while cleaning and put some order.

I hope someone  will fix it.

For what I could argue it is due a bad argument in the script.
In the while, to continue practice with ML, I switched back to the NewSystem version of Tragic Lantern, wich has modules working .

I am experimenting with noRAW videos, trying instead to enhance the  quality of the appareance of native h264, by fine tuning and tweaking, with ML, the shot's parameters.

Thought about updating ML on my 550D last night and the latest builds do not boot up (the hang is so severe that the power button doesn't even power off - only removing the battery, the red light on the camera just lights up and nothing else).

You should not expect us providing a polished product that you can just consume. This is a community effort. Grab your C compiler, fix it and submit a patch.

I've left this one unfixed on purpose - it's a great opportunity to get your hands dirty and learn something.

Canon T4i-650D
Thanks ML, Coming from the T1i ( 2.3 ), I can see great improvements on this new release, despite is a nightly build seems very stable.

3 BUGS : 1- White balance : After setting ML Kelvin balance, If I want to return to a predefined or custom white balance by pressing quick menu , can not be done with the buttons only with touch screen.
2- Menu ML shows exposure meter all the time
3- When reviewing photos touch screen doesn't work when scaling down

Canon 5D2.

Late night release from 31302bbc6461.zip (Aug 16).

I used Advanced Bracketing. If camera is set to Av (this is the mode I checked) steps greater than 2 EV are ignored.

-2, -2.5, -3, -3.5, -4, -4.5 and -5 result a -2 EV compensation.   :-(
Manual seemed to work OK. Steps less than 2 worked OK in Av mode.

I am new to this forum (although  I was a contributor 1.5 year ago).

I am not sure if this is the correct thread as this is not exactly a "normal" nightly build (it contains the DUAL_ISO and other modules) so apologies in advance.
EDIT: In the meantime I loaded nightly build Aug 21 and I verified that it has the same bug.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here -NOT FOR RAW

Advanced bracketing should be used in M only.

ML 2.3 bracketing works fine in ALL modes! It's a bug.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here -NOT FOR RAW
Post by: nanomad on August 22, 2013, 11:27:14 AM
No, bracketing can't be trusted outside M since canon is constantly making exposure decisions for you
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here -NOT FOR RAW
Post by: tron on August 22, 2013, 12:09:45 PM
ML 2.3 works FINE on that matter. It is the increase of maximum step from +- 2 EV to +- 5EV  which made it really useful (in addition to the number of frames of course). ML 2.3 bracketing was very trustworthy.

Post by: nanomad on August 22, 2013, 01:40:18 PM
Alright. I don't have a camera supported by 2.3 though. You should try to identify a nightly build that doesn't have this issue.

Suggestion: start from the oldest one and figure out the first broken one

I will do it this weekend. Thanks again.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here -NOT FOR RAW
Post by: tron on August 23, 2013, 01:56:41 AM
hello,

situation is as follows: the different behavior (EV step higher than 2 being set to 2) appears with the first nightly build version immediately after ML2.3

A parenthesis:

Actually this and some later nightly builds had another issue regarding Advanced Bracketing:
They ignored a possible exposure compensation set by a camera.
For example if camera was set to -1 an additional compensation say -2 set it to -2 and not to -3.

But this is solved in later nightly builds (including the latest).

End of parenthesis:

So can we get a maximum of 5 stops  for Av mode in some next nightly build?

Thanks in advance.

That's a Canon limitation, nothing to do with ML.
At ML2.3 stable (5D2) it works fine. It was the feature I wanted (and used) most! (2nd being more than 3 shots bracketing)

Post by: tron on August 29, 2013, 01:56:35 PM
Do you have a 5D2? You can test it!  Load ML2.3 Mode Dial set to Av, Activate HDR bracketing and set 2 shots at 5EV step.

I understand you are full with tasks.  I can load ML2.3 to my 5D2 to night (when I go home) and do the same.

I will take 2 pictures and I can send them to you to check EXIF info.

Would that be enough?

Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here -NOT FOR RAW

So is it OK? Can it be changed to +- 5EV ?
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here -NOT FOR RAW
Post by: a1ex on August 29, 2013, 02:18:30 PM
I wouldn't, just flip to M mode.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here -NOT FOR RAW
Post by: tron on August 29, 2013, 02:22:53 PM
Why ? It worked perfectly. I will miss it. In fact I had used it one day and the next I had loaded the latest ML and I realized afterwards that my supposedly -5 shots were taken at -2!  (At -2 moon was burned beyond recovery in contrast to -5 previous day where an additional -2 at Camera raw restored it fully).

Do you fear a possible  problem and you stop it at Av?
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here -NOT FOR RAW

Post by: tron on August 29, 2013, 02:54:43 PM
At least can the 5EV limit for manual mode be raised to say 7 or 9?

But this is more like a new feature request rather than a fix request and I understand if it will be denied for other more important things which we all know what these are  :)  :)  :)

ML2.3 Unified updated with ML night build unified 3 Sep on 5D2:

arcanoid, file_man, pic_view: oldAPI

Since Dual ISO wasn't available I tried:

ML2.3 Unified updated with af839274b1fa.zip (DUAL ISO for 5D2) to get dual_iso and then updated  with ML night build for 5D2 (3 Sep).

Same result:  arcanoid, file_man, pic_view: oldAPI

guys what's the new way for shooting sunrise/sunset  timelapse without bulb ramping?
With ETTR + XMP Deflicker Sidecar + SilentPicture DNG ... how do I "have to" set the camera?
Do ETTR change shoot values or only arrange exposure into XMP file?

1) Sunrise: it's better to set exposure lower or higher than 0?

2) Sunset: same question   :D

Thanks in advance!  ;)

How about we ship builds *without* modules then add a page to let you download the modules you want?
Plus a nice bookmark you can save to get the most up-to-date version of your selection
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: a1ex on September 06, 2013, 10:04:04 AM
You usually want to update both modules and core. So, what about a list where you can choose what modules to bundle in the zip?

(so you would select camera and modules, and the selection can be remembered for future visits)

You can also display some info from modules README (e.g. the summary and a link to the full description page), so people know what they should choose.

The full description pages are already rendered nicely on Bitbucket, e.g. https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/src/tip/modules/dual_iso/README.rst (so you could just point to them)
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: tron on September 06, 2013, 11:27:14 AM
Isn't the all modules updated case the most usual for someone to want? Why a complex way?  Since the modules are disabled in the first place someone will enable the ones he/she wants every time without a need for additional download! That way the full ML will always be available... Unless you want a way to update some modules and some not for the extreme case where a module is broken somehow. But judging from your performance it will be broken only for a day or two before it is fixed and someone can always revert to a previous nightly build. :)

P.S Can you please include dual_iso in the nightly builds.
PS2. Can you please put a version number to your utilities (cr2hdr, ...) ?
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: nanomad on September 06, 2013, 01:08:06 PM
Not all modules will work on all cameras. E.g. 1100D user won't download raw_rec.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here

Right, but this can be automated (see checkdep.py).
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: nanomad on September 06, 2013, 04:37:14 PM
Sure, I simply wanted to separate ML build from module build so that one doesn't make the other fail.
I'll see if I can come up with a solution in jenkins that doesn't take too long to build

I'm a bit confused about the new Nightly build download site.

When I download the pack for 550D the Autoexec isn't big enough to be working (I think), so I tried the Unified and this one works.

What's the (in my case) 550D pack for? When I replaced the Data, Modules and Script folders with an earlier Nightly, the camera didn't work at all (haven't tried a Nightly from last 3 days due to no time)

You should always try first before attempting bug reports.

The 550D build is smaller because it only contains code specific to that build.  Or, the unified build is larger because it contains code for all bodies.

I wasn't reporting a bug. I am aware how to report one (I did several times + the bugs being succesfully fixed)....I also opened two tickets in the bug tracker with two bugs (both existing now for months), I don't know if they're hard to fix, but all the reporting I did, didn't work out this times.

Right now you are building modules every time for each camera, right?

If so, I can add a switch in checkdep.py that does not return error if dependency check fails, but it deletes the *.mo file instead. Therefore, "make zip" will not include that module.

If you hit disp then hit set to white balance, the next time you hit disp the overlays work.  Somethings wonky, but I'm sure they'll take care of it.

Seems like something wrong with ETTR hint (650D, RGB log histogram, Use raw histogram ON, Clip warning On, all defaults basically).
Image is fairly overexposed, but ETTR hint shows a positive value.

Up until now, I've used TL for raw.  But I keep testing the nightly's hoping for an improvement.  I can get 100 frames @ 720 resolution, which, with no pink frames, is usable.  For now I just use it for personal use, but I'd like to incorporate it in with my commercial stuff.

Without seeing the image and the ETTR settings, it's impossible to tell.

ETTR module doesn't loaded in this example.
Unfortunately, screengrab feature doesn't show the picture itself in bmp.

Oh, by the way, someone asked this already, but 422-jpg-v2.exe doesn't work with these screengrab 422 files. Are there any other plugins or transcoders for 422?

BTW, I'm thinking to bundle it with ML as text only, not as pre-rendered bitmaps. With the new fonts it should look a lot better, and should take much less space on the card.

This is so you will have no excuse if you don't read it :D

When the new stable is released, i can tweak the manual guide if you liked?, where images are i could also embed video into the pdf? not a problem if not needed.

Could be a choicely download? normal manual is with release as usual.

Post by: a1ex on September 20, 2013, 06:00:45 PM
You can start right now, nobody touched it since last year. At some point it was bundled with the nightly builds too, but now it seems removed again.

The preferred version for editing is this: https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/src/tip/doc/

but wiki is fine too, since the changes are not hard to follow and merge.

Ok cool, ill do this as a side project for my self.

ill basically copy and paste whats there so far from current manual and add whats new so far.. ill add a section for whats new (nightly) ie RAW dual iso etc etc but keep it a separate from stable, when ML is complete ill merge into stable. Sorry if that reads confusing.

do i have permission to use images from ML site? eg: say you posted a screen grab of a new function.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: a1ex on September 20, 2013, 06:14:20 PM
If in doubt, ask the guy who posted it, but I guess it's usually OK.

When I wrote the release notes for ML 2.3 back then, I asked the authors of each photo/video on flickr/vimeo and got permission to use them.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Doyle4 on September 20, 2013, 06:24:46 PM
Ok cool i'll do it that way round also, i wont add till had a reply of confirmation.

Ill also add the information from the modules folder from Magic Lantern / modules / for dual iso ill take from the dual iso.pdf.

Do you know who is the creator of the new webpage is please? would like to message him as ill use Indesign to make the pdf look similar to ML's web graphics.

Doyle4, can you fork (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7940.0) the repository please.

This way I can help, and see what you have already done so we're both not doing the same thing and wasting time.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Doyle4 on September 20, 2013, 07:45:01 PM
Ok sure,

ill be starting this tomorrow.

Tomorrow ill be more than likely making the original guide more upto date n update the look ie new camera models that now support ML and nightly builds, and make the layout look more like the webpage design.
Once that is done ill be making a Nightly/new features section which covers all the new features so far, RAW video, dual iso aettr etc.

People could have a choice of two guides for now if thats ok with the devs, a stable guide for people who downloaded stable ML and another guide that covers stable and up date features so far using a nightly, or keep it as just the one guide still which includes nightly features later in the guide that way people can have a guide to the stable release and a guide to understanding what will be coming in next stable release. and from there keep updating as progress moves on.

Just curious to why some built in ML options are been turned into module's like dottune and silent shutter? and added to nightly.

Cheers.

They're making modules portable across all camera bodies and keeping camera specific features independent.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Doyle4 on September 22, 2013, 09:45:07 PM
Ahh ok, like i say was curious, makes sense for the dot tune as not all cameras have that mode...so its a lil bit space removed i guess too and the user has the ability to customise ml to there needs, nice.

Can see MLV is coming along nice too, exciting times right now.

Keep up the work guys.

But you did answer my question.  There is no version of ettr.mo that works with the latest magiclantern-v2.3.NEXT.2013Sep25.500D111

Well I will hope someone out there could be good enough to help to make this possible some time. I have the function available on the 5DMKII (which I am using primarily for the RAW recording) but I am concentrating on using the 500D for timelapse and the ETTR is a great tool for that.

I am sure this problem will be solved some day. Timelapse is a virtue :)
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Doyle4 on September 25, 2013, 04:55:09 PM
Autoexposure = No go

Silent.mo = pink frames with quick presses, also noticed in this build when pressing the shutter half way the camera adjusts its settings to focus which outputs the image with these settings (ettr was disabled so im guessing that could be the cause?)
no pink frames again using intervalometer - 25th Sept Nightly - 600D

really like the interface look though.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Doyle4 on September 26, 2013, 05:06:06 AM
Silent.mo seems much better, no pink frames with random pressing, 1 pink frame out 15 during intervalometer, will test more tomorrow.
600D 26th Sept - Changeset: ce9fb256205c0b850ca7209b26973f0788e49447

AE.mo still a no go.

Hi. I have tryed the last ML nightly build on a 6D. I would like to use the ETTR with day to night timelapse, but I cant get it to work properly. I have followed the guide at http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=5705.0 If I shoot on and one shot manually it sems to adjust the EV but it ower adjust. It suddenly jumps to 25 or 32 seconds exposure. When using the intervallometer it wont change the exposure at all, and only stays at the same vaules as the first picture. is it some setting I am missing ? Or is the feature not supported by the 6D ?

Hi, I have 600D 1.02 + ML2.3 for a long time operating fine.
I wanted to give a try to last nightly build of today 2013-10-01 03:00:09 +0200.
Downloaded, etracted, copied to SD, but the camera does not boot. SD LED blinks in cycles 3x long + 3x short blinks (right after I close the SD door, even before power on).
autoexec.bin in nightly is 444KB, opposed to v.2.3 stable 1637KB. Is this correct? How to make nightly build running?
Thanks in advance!

Hi. I have tryed the last ML nightly build on a 6D.

For 6D, currently use 1%'s Tragic Lantern fork until it's ported to the main ml trunk. Also be aware of the fact that currently a lot of features don't work on 6D , and isn't stable and is very likely to crash on you from time to time.

autoexec.bin in nightly is 444KB, opposed to v.2.3 stable 1637KB. Is this correct?

Yes, this is correct, with newer m builds a lot of features were moved to modules and aren't in the main autoexec.bin anymore. Be sure to enable the modules you want after installing.

That one is pretty easy to find. Look in one of the Stable releases they will contain all the files.

The file you want will sit in the ML/data/FONTS.DAT on one of those releases.

Update by RenatoPhoto (Oct 1, 2013):
* Delete ALL old files from card i.e. autoexec.bin and the entire ML directory and replace by new files.  Do not mix old with new.
*Some cameras are being developed separately from the main Unified build.  Some of those builds will have certain features available which may not be available through the nightly build.  You can explore the individual RAW development threads for additional builds; of course AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Hi,

On the change log for the new nightly changes to cr2hdr and raw2dng are mentioned.  Does this mean there are new versions of these apps out there somewhere or that the software in the camera allows them to do better things?

Sorry if this is a naïve question.

Thanks,

Actually I was not having issues (have t4i) but see that advances in PDR etc have developed from the link you provided.  Somewhere it would be great to have a master forum with links to all important app udates and  workflows.  There is alot happening and one needs to find the time to monitor all of the sites.

 So I assume your answer is that the software in the camera can work better with these apps.

Anyway thanks again for your help. :)

The indicator was there for 1 or 2 years (only changed the looks).

I'm asking at what temperature it should turn red.

for me, this is unnecessary distracting.
and also, my temperature is always above 50 and brightly red.

you can do screen shots from the ML menu ;)

Is that 55? ifso thats not too bad, Canon cameras will shut down if it thinks its too hot as a precaution.

Question on Alex or anybody from the team,

I am ML user from the very beginning on 550d.
Since today on 5d3.
So there is for me a very important question.

is ML gonna stay on Canon 5d3 firmware 1.1.3?
There are many improvements  for photographer on 1.2.1 to 1.1.3
and there´s no good filmmaker without good photographer.

Thankful for your work and achievements(donatet 3x),

cause so the world should be :)

I came across to this thread: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=2032.0

Since 650D and 600D are similar, is it possible for us to implement 600D Audio features to 650D build?

I guess it shouldn't be too hard to copy 600D audio features to 650D nightly builds.

noob here...

i just bought my first DSLR, a 5D mkIII, and am trying to install ML but the nightly build seems to be missing the '5D3-113-bootflag.fir' file.  i've searched and can't seem to find it.  any hints?

apologies for probably missing the obvious...

(on an unrelated and off-topic note, almost all of the installation guides suggest formatting memory cards as exfat, but also say to format in the camera and not via the computer, which is a contradiction?... as i understand it, the camera formats fat unless the cards are 128GB or larger, yes?)

thanks

The first install is totally different then nightly build. 
The fir file is here: http://a1ex.magiclantern.fm/bleeding-edge/5D3/5D3-113-bootflag.fir

You probably should read:

For the installation , i.e SD card for 5D3, it is suggested to format the card in camera to prepared it for the card booting operation.  exfat is good because the files do not get split when they reach >4GB.  On 5D3 you should be recording RAW video on CF card for better recording speed so you do not need to format CF in camera.

Thanks guys!  That all worked.  Amazing how several of the guides don't differentiate between nightly build and 1st install.  I installed the nightly build 'magiclantern-v2.3.NEXT.2013Oct24.5D3113' on my 5D mk III and it works great so far. However I have a new issue...

I have 2 x CF cards, a new KomputerBay 64GB 1000X and a Red 16GB that was given away at a trade show.  I've reformatted the KomputerBay to exfat on my Mac and when the card is put into the camera, the camera doesn't start up.  It's like a brick, nothing.  Pull it out and everything is fine. I've also tried formatting the card as fat, also on my Mac.

The camera will start with the Red card but won't allow recording.  Something about 'Card 1 Cannot Be Accessed'.  Also tried reformatting it.

Any thoughts?  Bad card slot?  Bad cards?  Bad nightly build?  User error?  I'm guessing (hoping) for user error.

I recall some trouble with the mac thing and card format but dont know how to solve it.  I also have read that some card readers can damage your cards, I was asked this question by Lexar when I returned a bad card.

I found a link to a similar problem, you will have to use our search button or read more post or hope that someone with the problem reads.

thanks again, RenatoPhoto.  I'll move this to a more appropriate part of the forum after this...

used the recommended USB 3.0 Kingston card reader, so it's not that.  i'm guessing it's 2 different problems... someone once told me that Red CF cards don't work on some/any Canon cameras, so that may be one issue.  I looked at the pins on the camera and all seems well.  so I simply might have a bad KomputerBay card... forgot to test it pre-ML, my bad.

Latest Nov4 nightly build for the 5D3 seems to be heating up the camera very quickly.  I wasn't even recording—I was just looking through the live view and trying different settings and the temperature reading at the top of the screen became red and showed 65C.  And the camera also felt very hot—hotter than I've ever felt it.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

hi Magics of the Lantern

Also strange behaviour with the last 4thNov Nightly Build on my Transcend CF
It was not possible to turn on the 5d3.
Replacing CF with an older build was also not possible.
Had to format the camera in Windows and put an older build.

What I also noticed is that transfer rates are changing from one nightly build to another
between 80 to 119MB/sek 

Thank U dear ML!

Can it hurt the camera to enable bootflag more than once?  Or will it just not affect anything?

With all the bootflag discussion going on I realized that I've done the procedure like 3 times when preparing a new card when I only needed to prepare the card on its own.  Cam is working fine but I just wanted to know if it could be bad for it technically.

One of the devs said its most likely a coding issue.  The temp read out may be off.  If your not getting the Canon overheat warning, you should be ok.

I use my cameras commercially, so I can't take any chances. I went back to an earlier build where this wasn't an issue.

Hi, i just started using the latest build for the T3i, it's the first time i'm using the updated ML look and overall i really like it.

A couple of things:

- I don't see the Time Indicator anywhere on Live View, so i have no idea how long my shot has been or how long i have until it cuts off. Any help? Is there something i need to do for it to show?

- Can the audio meters be on screen even with the "Override audio settings" set to OFF? I can only see them if this it's turned ON and sometimes i would like to use the simpler Canon Audio controls but still keep the meters on screen.

- This is the first time i'm using ML audio controls on the 600D, can anyone explain me the difference between Analog Gain and Mic Boost?


Thanks for any help, cheers!

Someone commited a change that broke the 1100D build. I submitted a fix, but it never got merged, probably b/c a1ex was busy with other things, now it appears he's going to be MIA for a while, so it probably wont get fixed anytime soon.

Short Answer: Just use the one from 10/20, there's nothing new since then anyway.

Enable expo override and you can change Av in video mode on 1100D from the ML menu. I use this all the time.

I'm assuming you're trying to bleed on the edge with most of us by using nightly builds, if so...

http://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/ (http://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/) and be sure you choose the platform to 5D3.

Otherwise - you can just get the latest Alpha version from here https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/downloads/magiclantern-5D3.113.Alpha3.zip (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/downloads/magiclantern-5D3.113.Alpha3.zip)

Enjoy!

Now a new problem - loaded the latest build into my 5d3, clicked the modules I wanted, rebooted the camera (I assume that just means turn it off) - but the modules didn't load. They're there, with the green lights lit, saying they'll load, but they don't.

updated:

latest 2013/11/23 build for 600D.102 reaching 82 Celsius, movie recording stops automaticaly, I saw grain noise increasing in the sensor significantly...

I loved the display layout in this build, and all features and modules I tested are stable, but temperature is definetely a problem!!!


previous information before post update:
600D temperature report:
in the 2013/11/23 build for 600D.102 temperature goes to 70C in early seconds of recording
in the 2013/09/28 build for 600D.102 temperature keeps at 60C (maximum) after various minutes of recording

Someone commited a change that broke the 1100D build. I submitted a fix, but it never got merged, probably b/c a1ex was busy with other things, now it appears he's going to be MIA for a while, so it probably wont get fixed anytime soon.

Short Answer: Just use the one from 10/20, there's nothing new since then anyway.
Enable expo override and you can change Av in video mode on 1100D from the ML menu. I use this all the time.
Thanks, finally got around to trying to install it. I've updated my camera to 1.0.5 and tried installing ML. However when I get to the "Launch the Firmware Update process." part, the 1100D says "Memory card containing firmware is required to update".

I have tried a 10/21 build, a 10/20 build, and a 10/18 build, and I've tried putting canon firmware (1.0.5) into the SD card, but it still doesn't install ML.

Any help will be appreciated!

Nightlies were not designed to be first install. You need to download and install the alpha for the 1100D, then update to the nightly (by replacing the files on your card with the files in the zip for the nightly). The alpha has the .fir file that sets the bootflag in the camera.

600D Overheat issues:

Filmed the LPGA Charity Tournament today with 3 600d's.  I was running an older nightly build (6-1) on two cameras, while my second operator was running an Oct-25 build. 

The only camera to overheat and shutdown 6 times over the course of 9 holes (3 hrs) was my second operator's with the 10-25 build.

Originally I had thought this was a temp reporting error, but obviously it is not.  The camera IS getting hot.

The other two cameras with the older build had no issues what so ever and were used in the exact same environment and temps.

I advise anyone running nightlies since the new memory and design layout revert back to an older build, or deal with overheat issues.

I have a 6D and downloaded the nightly.  But, there's no .fir so I cannot set the bootflag.  Not surprisingly, the 6D will not update the firmware to install ML.  How can I get around this?  Can I use another .fir file (from another model) to use as a dummy to set the boot flag?

Hey.
Quick display question that googling and searching isn't solving.  In the nightly build the shooting GUI isn't displaying the modified ISO value when using ML digital ISO correction.   So if I'm at analouge ISO 400 and have -0.3EV ML digital ISO it still displays as 400.  I may have missed a setting buried somewhere?

Removed support for 50D, 6D and 1100D because these ports were not maintained for months and became outdated. EOS M support was already removed a while ago. I've also cleaned up the feature table, it now only shows the supported cameras.

Wait... I haven't downloaded a nihtly build since april...

Is there no more unified builds? I already had to have separate cards for the EOS M when I wanted to use ML on it, but now I need separate cards for the 60D AND T2i (550D)? Is there a way to download a unified ML nightly build that will work on both 550D and 60D as it's always been?
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: a1ex on December 19, 2013, 05:58:07 PM
Well, the best practices page recommend separate cards anyway.

The current approach (fat binary) does not scale to the number of cameras that ML can run on; I have a portable loader in mind, but it's pretty hard to do, and it has a low priority. Maybe when the raw madness will settle, we might be able to do another unified release, but right now I can't promise anything.

Hey no worries, I found the nified releases up til Sep 20 here: http://nanomad.magiclantern.fm/jenkins/

I think it fixed the issues I had with the last nightly I was running (tweaking audio levels while recording). And it has pretty new menus. I can wait for a nicer unified later on.

I wish I could just separate cards, and I may do that once I go buy some more, but with 3 16GB's and 5 32GB's all haning out together in my card holder while I'm running around checking up on 3 cameras during a wedding ceremony, well it gets hard rnough just making sure I out the non-ML cards in the EOS M lol.

Hey guys!

First timer with ML over here. I'm sure this has been asked to death already, but I wasn't able to find conclusive answers, thought maybe someone could help me.

I have a Canon 60D, running latest firmware version, I believe 1.1.1. I have been able to get stable 2.3 working just fine. My question is, how do I go about flashing the nightly? I have a few ideas on how I could do it, but I definitely don't want to chance it with my baby. So, would someone mind point forming instructions for me? Thank you!

Do I need to run the firmware update process after replacing?

Can I overwrite? Or do I need to actually delete the ML and autoexe.bin folder and file?

I have a few ideas on how I could do it, but I definitely don't want to chance it with my baby. So, would someone mind point forming instructions for me? Thank you!

I think I'm having exactly the same misunderstanding as you.  I've tried repeatedly to install the nightly WITHOUT first loading the stable or an Alpha for my 60D - I think you DO need to load a stable or Alpha and THEN load the nightly - there's some great scripts written by Ben at http://learningsurfphotography.com/how-to-gain-full-control-with-a-basic-water-housing/ for my water housing - but it needs the nightly installed for the scripts to run - as far as this newbie understands it anyway.

I have stable 2.3 installed - very easy - and I'll now try the suggestions above by Walter Schulz to get the nightly loaded to run Ben's scripts.

Total newbie here - looking for light in the darkness.......

Edit: ummmmm no I removed all of stable 2.3 from my card and loaded following nightly for 60D:

    Built on: 2013-12-21 10:15:09 +1100
    Changeset: dbab847a9326b49a85339e02fc09555462bec9b5

and then tried to update in camera and camera says: "memory card containing firmware is required to update" so didn't work for me.

I'll keep digging away.

Further edit.

So I worked it out - yep = need to run the stable on the card - then remove all from card and replace with the nightly and then all done and works - BUT apparently the latest nightly DOES NOT support Pico C scripts - so even though I sorted getting the latest nightly build up and working with no issues - no amount of tinkering would get the scripts to run - effectively the scripts create a protocol where depressing the live view button brings up the quick menu allowing the user to run the camera in manual mode and adjust shutter, aperture, ISO etc via the top dial - very helpful with a water housing with limited functionality - all credit to Ben of www.http://learningsurfphotography.com.

I eventually received help from Ben who sent me a link to an old nightly build that still allowed the Pico C scripts to run - so after much trial and error and reading forums (and Ben's generous help) all resolved.

ML is amazing software - now to work out how to put it to work!

Seems obvious and makes sense in retrospect when you know how the software works - however as a new user of ML I assumed that running a nightly build would require the same steps as loading a stable - now I understand it doesn't and why.

So new ML users with a 50D have lost the possibility to record RAW video with their camera (due to missing repositories for downloading builds which supports this)?!

Yep: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=8900.msg91310#msg91310

The problem is that nobody is maintaining the 6D port except 1%, who for some strange reason is not contributing his changes back to the main repo. Basically he is only maintaining his competing fork. a1ex got tired of manually merging 1%'s changes for him. You can use TL if you want, personally I wouldn't.

And 50D, please.

In the thread "RAW video & ML -- Beginners Guide, FAQ & Useful Links -- READ FIRST (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=5520.0)" they refer to builds.magiclantern.fm/#/ (http://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/) as the download source for RAW video firmware, which isn‘t correct anymore in the case of the 50D.

What's the point of having development builds if nobody is developing?

The point is that users without knowledge of compiling code can easily use ML for RAW recording.

You (developers) think: "Nobody is developing, so it makes no sense when we keep it in there"
I (user) think: "Why we have to compile it by ourselves just because nobody is developing?"

Nope, that is not at all the point of nightly builds, you are completely wrong. The point of nightly builds is to aid developers by allowing users to test new features, so that developers can get feedback on those new features and fix bugs, etc. The developers only go to the trouble of making builds available to you so that you can provide feedback and testing. There is no point in automatically putting out new builds if this is not a closed loop. If there is no developer there to receive the feedback, there is no point in having the automatic public builds.

ML is not some polished consumer product ready to be used by every Tom, Dick, and Harry. It's a hobby project written by hackers (in the good sense) in their spare time. Some assembly required (pardon the pun).

I (user) think: "Why we have to compile it by ourselves just because nobody is developing?"
You realize this question reduces to "Why do we have to do something ourselves if there is nobody to do it for us?"

These removed builds weren't even being maintained, so I don't understand what the loss is.  A different time stamp on the build doesn't mean new features or bug fixes.

where are nightlies for the 50D to be found at http://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/ ?
the camera is not listed among the platforms..?

Thanks for trying out the latest nightly build!  However, I don't encounter either of the issues you've described with either of the recent nightly builds that are available (magiclantern-v2.3.NEXT.2014Jan06.50D109.zip and magiclantern-v2.3.NEXT.2014Jan07.50D109.zip, which actually contain the same code).  I do not get any error about FONTS.DAT missing, even though it is not there, nor do I get any problems with booting with modules enabled (raw_rec by itself, or all included modules).

Did you make sure to delete the old autoexec.bin and the whole ML directory before copying over the nightly build?  You may wish to try reformatting the CF card and starting fresh to make sure that the stable ML (2.3) works fine, then trying again with nightly build (again, remembering to delete all the old files before copying over the new ones).

Now that the nightlies are back for these models, can you (or someone with permissions) edit the original post so that it doesn't immediately tell people to go to TL builds?  TL can be mentioned as an even-more-bleeding-edge option, of course.

Been having the same issue for a while on the 600D, it's the main reason why i always go back to the stable 2.3 release. I hope there's a fix because i love everything else about the latest builds.

Yesterday I updated ML to magiclantern-v2.3.NEXT.2014Jan15.5D3113 on 5D3 - earlier i used an September20-build with dualiso and rawvideo - and it works perfectly for me.
Then I want to test the DotTune-module - I never tried this (except with the old September and now this version).

I use a tripod, a tele lens (small DOF) on 3m distance to a picture frame on the wall, use Liveview for focus, set the lense to MF and go into the menu.
The iteration works, but it seems that ML can't set the calibration value into the register - he try between -100 and +100, and its always in focus (dot/red light in VF). If I manually set different values into the original canon menu - it works, and I get at -12 and 15 or so no focus indication - so my lens is ok, and this kind of test works - but not with the ML iteration automatic. It searchs and later there is an error message, that I should double check, if it is in focus. I event tried several lenses.
Am I too stupid, is something broken (and I don't find it), or ..?

Thanks again.

Hmm, your procedure sounds correct (thanks for being so explicit in your description!).  I've just recently played a bunch with the DotTune module on builds from last week, and I'm pretty certain that the automatic scanning works on my 50D.  Here are some thoughts:

Edit: just tested automatic scanning with the DotTune module using the Jan 17 nightly build, and it works on my 50D

I'm wondering if anyone could clear something up...

I get the idea of the nightly builds... but whenever I've looked there, the change log is SO confusing. In the past, I would follow threads and then I would see a new "build" date being talked about (this is for 5D 3 raw) and I would grab that and there'd be some discussion on changes or important fixes (i.e., separate audio being removed for raw)

I'm using the August 20- something build and came on here and I see mentions of an October build... but looking at the drive change log doc it's all voodoo code talk that I don't understand and I'm not sure how to see what the difference would be between the 5 month old build I'm using and something more recent.

Can somebody explain this a bit more, specifically in relation to the 5D3. What i've read on the forums here has now just confused me a whole lot more.

Thanks,

Why don't you just try the latest build and see for yourself what's changed? If you can't understand the changelog, then there's nothing we can really do to explain it to you better. If there are major new features, they will popup in the forum. Bugs get fixed quite frequently, so there's no reason not to stay up to date.

Hi, I´m very new on this forum  ;D
I´m interested to work with ML. My camera, a 700D is brand new and I have installed the nightly Build 18.1.2014. I shot some raw video files and convert it in dng files with raw2dng.exe.
My problem is - I have in the middle of each dng frame pixel lines with pseudocolour and I want to know is that a problem of the camera chip or a bug of ML raw video? For better understanding I will post a picture.
It would by fine, if I get a feedback.

For test your camera try an standard picture, as JPG or RAW. And h264! If that works, start with the last build for your camera, with the settings recommended for debs.

@ayshih: Thanks for your reply.
The 60D hast no AF configuration, that is one missing feature to the 50D, propably to make a bigger difference to the 7D at this time.

I use the 70-200 IS II.

I tried it again, the values in the original Canon menu are the same as in the DotTune module menu, vice versa - so this works.
I tried with -20 to 20 manual and with the option "all lenses" instead of "this lens" - this seems to be the problem. "all lens"es works fine. There might be a problem, that its a zoom lens? In the Canon menu I got two values W and T (Wide and Tele it seems), but the one value in the DotTune module seems to stores to both settings (propably ok), but I again get these problems, that I even get at -100 and +100 a focus indication.
Anyway, no matter... I can use the "all lens" option and remember the values at 70mm and 200mm (and other lenses) and can store these manually with the original Canon menu. It is a big hit.... but "unfortunately" my 70-200 after the test want to set a "0" value - and this seems ok - because this lens IS very sharp - i never had problems with it. ;-)

Ah, yes, I forgot that AFMA is missing from the 60D.  It sounds like your specific lens has not been registered in your camera in the way that initializes everything properly for the DotTune module.  See these posts from the DotTune thread:

http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=4648.msg29451#msg29451
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=4648.msg29772#msg29772

How about, using "this lens", try first setting arbitrary AFMA values to W and T, different from each other, and then trying the DotTune module again.

Regardless, this is not an issue specific to the nightly builds, so further discussion should probably move to the DotTune thread.

There's been a recent push to confirm that the temperatures were being accurately converted from the raw value for each camera, and cameras for which calibration data were not taken yet were reverted to display just the raw values for temperature.  See this thread (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9673.0) for more information.  Temperature measurements for the 5D Mark II were just provided yesterday (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9673.msg96606#msg96606), so I imagine you'll have human-readable temperatures again in the nightly builds in the near future.

The bottom line is that we don't feel these ports are ready for easy public consumption yet. There are fixes around in other repositories that would make them better but without an effort from someone to try and merge all the stuff back into the main repository we had to make a call and stop publishing the automated builds.

It's not like we are abandoning the ports. Think of this as a desperate call for help to the community.

As these builds make my life so much better in terms of getting a creative fix and being able to fulfill it, I am more than willing to put time in to work on this build, as well as the 100D/ SL1. That being said, I have little to no knowledge about the underthehood workings. If someone wrote out a layman's terms point-in-the-right-direction post on where to get started to get the fastest payout, I will definitely dedicate any free time to fulfilling this community endeavor. AND with that being said, I am in school studying Chinese full-time, so my workflow would be erratic at best. Please let me know if my effort would be useful or not.

I feel like there ought to be some sort of blockchain solution to remunerate developers for performing requested tasks. Something like: someone creates a development task and people pay some sort of coin into it, then a dev submits a solution, for which he is paid after a certain threshold confirmations that it works.

I think everyone realizes that developers should be paid, but the whole process of organizing it too costly in terms of time and effort. Not to mention gauche. You guys should get on this. I'm too lazy to learn how to code better, but I'd chip in for features.

I have the same setup with the 600D. I'd install a recent ML nightly version. For audio you don't need to do anything special beyond turn up the Rode mic and turn down the camera's gain.

Latest build : "Built on: 2014-01-26 16:11:15 -0800"

Crashed my 5d3 while it was doing CF card test when I first turned it on.  I removed the battery and it's been fine since.  I have the crash logs if they're needed.

Also, why is the MLV RAW getting stuck at 1280X448 when I try to shoot 60P?  No matter how I try to reset the camera or change the canon setting first then enable the MLVRAW it won't go to 720. It will do 1920x1080 24P just fine.  Forgive me if there was a post on this but I haven't been able to find anything about it.

If you have the Rode VideoMicPro, turn the settings on the back to +20 and turn down the audio gain on the Canon or the ML menu. If you have the VideoMic, it doesn't have +20 so you'll need somewhat higher gain set on the camera to get usable audio. That means more hiss.

No no 7D then?   :'(

Just joined today on the promise of ML for the 7D. 

Sorry - not a coder.  Unable to assist in that side of it.

No, and I don't see any signs of improvement. I'm very sad to see most key people ignoring this problem and I'm thinking seriously about quitting ML development because of this.

I cannot understand why you do not leave the older ML versions for people to download. Even an older nightly build is better than nothing for cameras like 7D, 6D etc...

I hope you do NOT mean quitting the WHOLE ML development for that. It would be a PITY!
True not many write code but at least some of us test the builds and report back.

Some suggestions: ML 5D series part may skyrocket if: 5D3 supported both: boot flag clearing and latest firmware. Just my personal opinion though (I ADMIT) and you have answered that already (at least the boot flag issue).

Post by: a1ex on January 28, 2014, 08:31:51 PM
I've stopped commiting in the last 2 months hoping people will become aware of the problem and will do something to improve it. With the exception of 50D, there was no real progress in merging back the code from TL; they keep moving away from the main line, they take all the cool stuff from ML without giving anything back, and I can't solve it alone.

I don't want to dictate what others should do, so I'll only decide what I should do. I just can't continue like that, sorry.

So there is still the 5Dx family and the 50D. It would be a pity to leave us. You know people believe in ML.

Thanks to Chris_overseas there is major advancement in support of the
current 1.2.3 firmware of the 5D3, a milestone in my eyes.

I am pretty confident that the boot flag issue can be solved as well,
and that the support of 1.2.3 will definitely bring in more people testing.

This in turn might bring a boost of interest and consequently attract more
developers.

Rumors about the death of ML are highly exaggerated, to say it this way.

Build  2014-01-26 17:23:15 -0800 on 550D crashes when trying to "Q" in to Vignetting options, battery has to be removed. However everything is fine if I just switch Vignetting on. I don't know what build I was on last, but it worked maybe some time in Nov or Dec.

Thanks.

This bug has been fixed as of tonight's nightly build (e.g., magiclantern-v2.3.NEXT.2014Jan29.550D109.zip).  You can test and confirm this on your end.

So in the audio setting which do I turn up and which do I turn down ? sorry

Thanks

I use the VideoMic (not pro) with the T3i/600D too. I was using one of the nightlies from end December but that would result in the camera heating up a lot. I switched to an older (September end) nightly and the temps are under control.

It's not a rumor when one of two main developers says it.




Alex, if this is your site why not stop allowing support or distribution for anything TL related on the forum. Flush it out.

I wouldn't even use ML if it wasnt for you or g3gg0.

I understand it's open source but as long as it's here it will always be confused with the main ML build. Especially since people are ignoring your warnings and bricked cameras are starting to show up.

I think you do the right thing not dictating (not much for regulation), however, is there anything one can contribute with, other than programming? I mean, would money solve anything?
  Maybe one could start a tip-jar for people working with the unified ML-branch? Maybe a simple list with things/functions that need to be unified before new features, and a tip-jar for it. Could that encourage people to do some "boring" programming for the sake of the ML-project?

+1000

These are the improvements I am waiting for to put ML to my 5D3.

But while waiting I refuse to upgrade my 5D2, the sole reason being using and testing ML on this.

To tell the truth the very thought had crossed my mind but I was reluctant to suggest it. I would feel comfortable with this though. Code for the current and future (if any) modules could be stopped being free and just distributed between a couple of trusting developers from now on for example.  We (users) can always test the nightly builds...

Regarding the advancements by Chris_overseas - can someone please
setup a new platform branch in the nightlies for 5D3-1.2.3?

I know it is far from even being Alpha, but I am willing to give it a shot.
The thing is just that I am too far away from programming to complie it myself.

I can offer to risk my camera and to test.

No, and I don't see any signs of improvement. I'm very sad to see most key people ignoring this problem and I'm thinking seriously about quitting ML development because of this.

Ignoring and being unable to do anything about it are two different things. I cannot find the words to praise alex' terrific contribution to ml, but the way oss works this is not the first time the forking problem occurs :-\

All I can say is that I've said my piece on this more than one time & tried to nudge the current TL maintainer into seeing how this might end, despite the fact that of course he's also sharing his TL work with current 6d owners and deserves to be thanked for that.

Alex, if this is your site why not stop allowing support or distribution for anything TL related on the forum.

I could understand this, and probably even the current TL maintainer would, the confusion caused by this is reason enough to separate a permanent fork from the ml main line. But as 1% says publicly in his last commit things might change yet: https://bitbucket.org/OtherOnePercent/tragic-lantern-6d/commits/a40939b7d8e0d155ca99ce539903ced815933020

Personally, I'm willing to switch back to ML the instant some basic ml 6d maintenance is found (I don't have the time). The buggyness should then be comparable with the TL level, i.e. the most important (raw) features work more or less and there's some basic commit stability check like 1% does ... as I already admitted to alex, I barely have time to *use* my 6d & just cannot cannot debug it :-o

Hi there,
i just installed the latest nightly build for my canon 5d2, but now it says FONTS.DAT not found during installation.
I used an older build without any problems. Am I doing something wrong?
I copied the magic lantern v.2.3 - 5d2-212.fr (correct firmware on 5d2) and the ML folder and autoexec.bin file from v.2.3.NEXT.2014FEB02.5D2212 to my CF Card.

I look forward to an assistance...

Thanks Guys!

Post by: kopir on February 08, 2014, 08:25:08 AM
Hello,

Just tried 3 different nightly builds (Feb 8, 2014; Dec 16, 2013; Nov 16, 2013) for 700D camera.
I don't see Auto ETTR option on Expo page. Is it no longer supported or is it 700D-specific problem or am I doing something wrong?
I was originally looking for Bulb ramping feature but found that you depricated it in favor of AutoETTR. I don't see ether in latest builds.
I am trying to use your software for a first time so it could be that I am doing something wrong.
Please advise.

Hey guys,

first time on this forum, so hey everybody :D
I already gained some experience with ML as I previously used the Beta on my 5Dc  a lot (worked like a charm). Having bought myself a new toy last week, a brand new 5D Mark II, and using the stable ML 2.3 since then, I'm now willing to give the ML 'Nightly Builds' a shot.

Most of the features seem to work pretty well and the new design is also a big improvement. However, there seems to be a huge bug within the latest NB. Whenever I want to switch off the camera (or manually choose the automatic "Sensor cleaning") the camera crashes while showing the sensor cleaning screen for ages. I have to remove the battery to continue.

If I can help with log-files or similar just let me know!

Best.
RP9

Hello beautiful people !
I have been shooting 4 days in a row ( in a raw ^^)  with those nightly builds : 06_02_2014 * 07_02_2014 * 08_02_2014
Everything went smooth, except one thing. For no apparent reasons, the frame rates skipped randomely from 25 fps to 29.776. I'd say one clip went wrong every 8 "good" 25 fps clips. I only noticed that when I converted my MLV to DNG sequences (thanks to Tony and his great mlv converter : http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=10198.0 )

I'm on a 5D Mark III
Global Draw : On all modes
Cropmarks : On
Raw video (MLV) : 1920x818 (2.35:1), Global draw : Allow

Is it a known bug ?

Are you shooting in crop mode? Whether you are or not enable FPS Override in the movie menu of ML and select your desired frame rate, then select exact fps as the mode.

That should do the trick.

Are you sure the bug is present in the latest nightly?

Nope, just tried out the Feb13 NightlyBuild. The camera now switches off correctly after showing the sensor cleaning screen for some seconds.

But now the sensor cleaning screen comes up directly after I switch the camera back on and stays there until I press a button.

As in the previous build, when I manually trigger the "automatic sensor cleaning" out of the Canon menu, the camera only shows the screen (and also stays there until I press a button), but it doesn't seem to do the full procedure as there is absolutely no sign/sound of mirror movement.

Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: a1ex on February 13, 2014, 09:01:49 PM
Just updated nightly builds; the most interesting stuff IMO is:

- memory backend updates (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=8358.msg101243#msg101243) (this one is huge, I expect massive improvements in overall stability)
- pink frame fix for 5D3 (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=10443) (I've only tried on 123, let me know if it works on 113)
- partial pink frame fix for 60D (seems OK in crop mode at 2.5K, but still got pink frames at 60fps)
- for 5D2, another attempt at sensor cleaning fix

From ayshih:
- [50D] TL backport: display filters (ML grayscale preview, anamorphic, etc.) work now
- [ALL] mlv_rec: global draw is restored after finishing a recording

From mk11174:
- audio remote shot on 650D/700D

Some more notable updates from the past few days (already old news for many of you, but maybe not for all):

- from dmilligan: multi-level submenus
- from mofig: more slit-scan modes, including a finish-line camera mode (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9907.0)
- from viniciusatique: movie restart on 5D3
- from Marsu42: tweaked warnings on bad settings
- from nanomad and dmilligan: photo raw and dual ISO on 1100D (old news already)
- from escho: cold pixel fix in raw2dng (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9700.msg97930#msg97930) (also old news, work in progress for mlv)

Note: there are some failed builds that lack a stub for memory backend. Just find that stub and these builds will be resumed.

Post by: a1ex on February 13, 2014, 09:49:29 PM
The memory backend updates affect pretty much everything.

For example, silent pictures used to crash if you used them at the same time with raw recording (both were fighting over the entire shoot memory). Now I'm trying to trigger an err70 and I can't any more.

hello guys.. im just testing the new build (13/02/2014) on my mk3... im not getting any pink frames at all... but i've noticed that i cant get faster recording speed like some other older builds... 24fps is fine in 1920x1080 - continuous ... 30fps gives me only 500 frames... i used to get continuous shooting with other builds.. same normal configuration.... any ideas? im with card spanning on and all the hacks ON... also when i open the image in ACR it comes all green (corrected when i press auto white balance), note: the same file in davinci comes fine not greenish.

any idea?

i did a lot of testing.... MLV is not sustaining high bit rate anymore... don't know why. I have all set properly but i cant get 30fps continuous.... :( ---- i have a komputerbay 1000x 64gb. Using RAW_REC it stays around 99MB all time nothing more... using MLV the SD gets 17.2mb all time but CF stays around 50MB 60MB nothing more.. any idea?

More recent updates included in the nightly builds (http://builds.magiclantern.fm/):

From dmilligan:
- menu caret (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=10422.msg101117#msg101117) (for menu items with lots of choices, like intervalometer time, number of shots, memory browser, you have both fast toggling and caret-based editing at digit level, so dialing values like 3h10m05s or 1005 shots it's now really quick and intuitive)

Please keep the camera-specific discussion in the threads linked above.

In particular, since these are backports from Tragic Lantern, there may still be difference between the builds. You should compare the two builds side-by-side, so the developers know what else needs to be backported.

For the Feb 21, 2014 build, I had to explicitly choose cf card as the preferred card otherwise it would record straight to sd. The benchmark test says it was testing cf card but was tapping out at around 20mb/s. When I did a few test shots and searched for the content it was on the SD. I don't know if this is widespread or just an issue with my camera 5d3 1.1.3

Just thought it is worth pointing out. Cheers.

Hey, I'm new to the forum/ML and after a search, found nothing about my question: It's okay to download and install an older nightly build if I want to, right? On the original post, it says something like "make sure you download the right version for your camera," and I assume that just means, "don't download the 7D build if you have a 60D."

Yes you can download an older nightly. Not sure what the point would be though unless you find a bug in the new nightly, then you can revert to an older one. But usually newer nightlies fix bugs.
And correct, don't put a 7D build on your 60D.

Not sure if this is the 100% right thread to post but I really need to say this. I have only recently discovered ML and installed it on my 550D. I really want to thank and congratulate all the people developing and contributing to this fantastic firmware enhancement. I am amazed at the knowledge and skills in evidence. I simply cannot believe how much more functional the camera is and the mind-blowing features that you guys are developing and adding. I am testing the latest nightly build now and have not found any issues. WOW!

Running magiclantern-v2.3.NEXT.2014Mar12.5D3113 build with a 32 Sandisk Extreme pro card (160 Mbps R/W). Recording MLV with audio module loaded, Global draw off, memory hacks on, memory spanning etc turned on to record ultra HD RAW video. So far, my set up allows for continuos recording of 2048x1152. I used mlv2dng for osx to generate dng sequence. The sequence appears to be fine, but when imported to Davinci resolve, its broken up into several clips. Lightroom imports only readable dng files while ignoring some. Its like its dropping frames....or rather some frames are not recording properly.

Title: Question about the developement of Nightly Builds
Post by: fotogemeinschaft_de on March 21, 2014, 10:30:39 AM
I would like to understand the development order of the nightly builds (f.i. the important bleeding edge Build of Canon 5d MK 3 (firmware 1.2.3.) is dated 17.3.14 and the Nightly build of the firmware version 1.1.3 is dated 21.3.14; why (in the development cycle) the development of the old firmware version is more important than the development of the newer firmware version?

IMHO the ML-version for newer firmware-version (1.2.3.) seems to be much more important (because of easy (de)installation etc.) than the development of the old one.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: a1ex on March 21, 2014, 11:23:33 AM
1.1.3 builds are automatic, 1.2.3 ones are manually updated.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Audionut on March 21, 2014, 11:33:42 AM
And it only makes sense to manually update them, when there has been changes to the codebase.

Otherwise, the only difference will be the date in the download.

I'm using the 3-17-14 build that supports firmware 1.2.3 on the Canon 5D Mark III. Everything works great except the crop marks. If I choose cinemascope or some other aspect ratio, the mask disappears when I am recording RAW video making it difficult to figure out framing. Maybe I'm missing something or haven't enabled something in the menu but I can't seem to figure out how to do it.

Other than that, I'm thrilled to be running ML with the latest camera firmware.

Make sure FPS overide is on. Then when on live view, press the "zoom" once (enter crop mode). Then press the trash can to access ML menu. ON the Raw video you will have the option to shoot beyond HD resolutions. (card and camera permiting)

5D Miii - bleeding edge (latest)

I have the Hoodman Steel 32gb compact flash.  Is there anyway to run ML off of this compact flash without the usage of an SD.  I have a sneaky suspicion that my SD card is slowing down my write speeds on the CF.

When I try and install from my hoodman steel 32gb, it says it cant find the firmware to update to ML.

If I install off of my SD, it works... but it'll recognize that the CF card has ML after the fact.

Any thoughts?

Use EOScard utility to make CF card bootable, copy contents of the unzipped file (AUTOEXEC.BIN + ML directory) to card. Insert CF into cam, startup and see what happens. No update needed to run ML in this scenario.

Tried magiclantern-Nightly for Canon 5D
5D2_212.fir Built on: 2014-04-02

It crashed my Transcend 1000x 32GB card. It is totally dead. It does not longer work in camera or pop up in MacOs disk utility. I think it burned up or something?

I filmed for 30 minutes in RAW, temperature was 52 celcius. (marked as yellow or orange i think)  The camera started to beeb and show error messages under recording. I stopped the camera directly and took it out. But everything I filmed was gone, and the card destroyed :(

Was a little bit worried first that my camera had died, since it will not even start with that card in it. But Camera seems ok. With a normal card it worked fine.

My guess the card simply couldn't stand the data rate strain and died, I second the theory that ML itself wasn't necessarily the cause. Reality is that things break and there are production faults that only show under stress, and unfortunately ML is quickly blamed.

I did a fresh install of the ML code on a 5D3 with 1.2.3 firmware. I loaded the ML files onto the root of my CF card, and left my Eye-Fi Pro X2 16GB card in the second slot. The install wouldn't complete and the camera appeared to be bricked.  :o  Fortunately, once I removed the Eye-Fi card it came back to life and booted with ML intact. Oddly though, if I try to replace the Eye-Fi card the same thing happens - no boot up. Swapping or removing CF cards has no effect - it seems like the Eye-Fi card is just incompatible with ML. Uninstalling ML and I was able to boot with the Eye-Fi card in place again.

Now I just copied the newer one (magiclantern-Nightly.2014Apr09.EOSM202) over the files on the SD-card
and all was fine again, no error at startup any more. / until today, not consistent error, every third start of the EOS M it hangs.

Thanks,

Great record times, but at 10 minutes on 24fps I hit a frame skip which caused almost like a debug menu to show up, and stay there. This also happened after about 5 minutes at 30fps. Here are the logs

I've discovered a problem with my 50D and every nightly build since 2014-03-10. When I want to change shutter or aperture over the scroll wheels, nothing happens on the main display. The hole image on the screen is not changing at all, including the displayed shutter and aperture values. On the b/w display on the top of the camera, the values are changing correctly.

When I switch to the gallery and go back to LiveView the exposure is getting applied correctly.

In summary, it seems that rotating the scroll wheels doesn't trigger a refresh of exposure anymore.

Example:

I power on the camera and launch LiveView.

Main Display: f/2.2, 1/660
Top Display: f/2.2, 1/640

I use the scroll whell to increase the aperture value

Main Display: f/2.2, 1/660
Top Display: f/9.0, 1/640

I open the gallery and switch back to LiveView

Main Display: f/9.1, 1/660 (the new aperture is now getting applied physically, too)
Top Display: f/9.0, 1/640

I tried the following:

- changed several settings in terms of exposure (Exp. Lock and so on)
- formatted the card and completely reinstalled ML
- tried over 15 builds (problem doesn't occur < 2014-03-10 < problem occurs)

What's the cause?

Hi,
Not sure if I'm in the right section here but I am new to ML.
I installed the latest night build this morning to my 5DMK3 with the Canon firmware version of 123. 
I created a DSLR bootable CF card with Macboot.  I placed the ML files in the root of the CF card and installed on my 5DMK3.  Everything seemed to set up fine and I powered the camera off when it said to reboot. 
The result is the camera wouldn't turn on.  I waited for a while took out the battery but still it wouldn't start.  I took out the CF card and battery and started the camera without the CF card and it started.
The problem now is that the camera will only start without the CF card.  When I put in the CF card it won't start up and also I have no ML installed on the camera. 
Anyone have any ideas?
Many thanks.

Hey,
I'm runing ML on my Camera for the first time using the latest nightly build (2014Apr24.5D3123) on my 5DMKIII.
Seems to run pretty stable for my understanding and I'm more than happy with the results. Thanks for all the work building this up.
Nevertheless I'm missing a few features from older Versions. So heres my Question  ;):
Is it possible to enable CBR bitrate control some how and is there a way to implement Bulb ramping ?

many thanks,
Vincent

There's 5 pages of results for Bulb Ramping instead of complaining that someone wont hold your hands for the answer you're looking for dig in surely one of those will tell you it was removed over six months ago and what to do if you really want it back or info on it's replacement. Relevant posts are only a few mins of research away.

So to say to a New Member just search, is rude and unhelpful . If this Community is to progress with need new people to bring new ideas,
not to discourage them and put them off. Yes there are lazy people out there that don't search and want to have there hand held but you must give people the

The answer was in the second post of a search result and IMO part of the reason things are not easy to find is because of the same questions asked over and over again. Bulb Ramp is asked for at least 2-3 times a week.

Hello,

Essentially I do this for raw recoding for color grading in post.
I spent days trying to unerstand which is the best solution and I had no clue.

I know that I have to begin from the Canon 2.03 firmware. Found.
I'm doing it on Mac.

How is working the last version? Is ok with Raw recording?
I use my camera for work so i can't get stucked.

Keep me updated.
Thanks for help.

Camera LED just blinks and nothing happens on screen or whatever, it even blinks after turning camera on and opening both doors - still blinking.

05-02 works though.

Don't have a 600D to reproduce but stored ML settings may interfere here.
Delete/rename ML directory and copy ML dir to card and overwrite AUTOEXEC.BIN.
Results still the same?



Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: a1ex on May 03, 2014, 12:22:06 PM
Solved.

Everybody, please download the nightly again (for all cameras). Some experiments (unfinished work) got merged by mistake, and as a result, ETTR and dual iso are halfway broken.

(now these experimental branches no longer merge cleanly, will try to fix)

edit: all seems OK now, except for the clutter in the change log

It's just the display that is slow, the shutter speed actually changes quickly (I couldn't tell from your video, but I tried it on my camera and that is the case, you can change the shutter speed quickly, the readout on the display just takes longer to refresh with MZ or some other CPU heavy function enabled, which makes perfect sense, more CPU overhead means less time to update stuff like the bars).

Yes, that is the case.

Maybe some code optymisation will help ? I dont think that exp. comp. is a CPU heavy function.

Hi installed this release on 5D3 and tested with both raw and mlv. It is not stable yet, sometimes it hangs when IO rate is too high, but it will not kill your camera.

Anyone else having issues after installing the Canon 6D firmware update 114? I have tried several of the most recent nightly builds for the 6D and all of them end up once I try to update the firmware for ML just go to a flashing red light on the back of the camera. The light is the one right next to the memory door on the right back side of the camera. So it is not completing the install of ML and this has been the case with the old working version from 3/29/14 for nightly builds and all three of the most recent builds. I have come to love the extra stuff ML does, and I will got back to Canon's firmware 113 if I can't get ML working with 114. I just want to make sure whether it is just me, or if others are having these issues.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: sirquack on May 21, 2014, 12:38:27 AM
I guess I found the answer to my own question. The download does show the extension of 113 so I am guessing a compatible version has not yet been created for 114. Good thing I backed up my 113 firmware before the upgrade. I am definitely wiling to stay there until someone creates a ML version for 114.

Updated the features table to show some internal definitions: http://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/features

(such as whether the camera has a blue LED, or a flip-out LCD, or a dedicated bulb mode, or various backend things)

A few things to be double-checked on new ports:

- CONFIG_REC709: check if the screenshot colors match the ones from LiveView; if not, try enabling this.
- CONFIG_WB_WORKAROUND: if your camera does not remember Kelvin WB and WBShift in movie mode. I expect it to be needed only on older Rebel cameras only.
- CONFIG_ZOOM_BTN_NOT_WORKING_WHILE_RECORDING: enabled on 650D, but not on 700D (I expect these two to be identical here).

3 weeks ago I've asked nicely (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/commits/03bb4ef73a77a5bf4b4dbb05c8b473f789439bb2?at=gui-timers) for some stubs required for mlv_play and some future refactorings. It was done in a branch so it won't break the nightly builds until these stubs were found.

So far, I've received these stubs only for EOS-M+5D3 (jpaana) and 700D (mk11174). Since I doubt that waiting a few more weeks will bring in more stubs, I've merged the branch, so all the other builds are broken and will stay so until somebody will wake up and take care of them.

Good luck ;)

edit: most nightly builds are back online, thanks to ayshih (50D) (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/commits/18a963dad63a4c5581efb3b6e19a7a72e96217ec),  Pelican (7D) (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-request/509/fio_seekskipfile-added), dmilligan (60D) (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-request/510/60d-gui-timer-stubs-and-fio_seekskipfile/diff), nanomad (650D/1100D/550D), escho (600D) (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-request/503/edmac_channels-for-600d) and a.d.

Build: 2014-05-31 01:11:18 +0200
  first seen at 2014-05-24 01:10:49 +0200


And is it possible to show RAW HistoBar and the sound level??

or just turn MLV sound on but hide the sound level to see RAW HistoBar

3 weeks ago I've asked nicely (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/commits/03bb4ef73a77a5bf4b4dbb05c8b473f789439bb2?at=gui-timers) for some stubs required for mlv_play and some future refactorings. It was done in a branch so it won't break the nightly builds until these stubs were found.

So far, I've received these stubs only for EOS-M+5D3 (jpaana) and 700D (mk11174). Since I doubt that waiting a few more weeks will bring in more stubs, I've merged the branch, so all the other builds are broken and will stay so until somebody will wake up and take care of them.

Good luck ;)

edit: ayshih submitted (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/commits/18a963dad63a4c5581efb3b6e19a7a72e96217ec) the 50D stubs, and escho submitted (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-request/503/edmac_channels-for-600d) some of the missing bits for 600D; still waiting for all the other cameras

Hi A1ex,

If I could, I really would help you with this. As a newbee I don't know, how to extract this/those file(s) from my 7D.
Is there any tutorial for this kind of work, or could you please help me to help you (and all the others)?

Finding these requires reverse engineering (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reverse_engineering#Reverse_engineering_of_software), something for a skilled developer who knows what he is doing, and this post from a1ex is more directed at them and not so much at users in general.

It's great that you want to help though, if you know how to code and are fairly familiar with C, then start here (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=991.0), and maybe work on something from here (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9625.0). If you don't you can always learn (http://code.org) or help in other ways (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9516.0).

Arkanoid is an old school video game... as far as the other stuff I don't know as iv'e never encountered that but make sure you did a proper install of the initial Lantern with raw and goodies then delete all the ML files and put the nightly in there and boot your camera!

Hi, I'm new to this forum, but I'm very happy as a Magic Lantern user, and I would like to help having nightly builds for 500D working again.

I'm very outdated as a developer.  Last time I wrote a C program was 23 years ago, using Borland Turbo C 2.0. And in assembler, things are even worse, last time was using a ZX Spectrum, storing my code in a cassette tape  ::)

But I've read Alex's tutorial for finding stubs, and I have disassembled my 500D firmware using "disassemble.pl"

I've found that FIO_SeekSkipFile is located at FF1967D4

That follows the 0xD0 offset rule from FIO_SeekFile (FF1968A4 for 500D) as observed in other cameras. And the stub has the structure described in the first example of the tutorial: starts with a "push" instruction, the stub is the destination for several calls from other sections in the firmware. with "bl" instructions, including a call from FIO_SeekFile.

I've also found a similar structure starting with "push" at FF3A96EC, that could be the "CancelTimer" stub.

It's called from 4 places, and the routine includes the string "DlgPlayMovieControlGuide.c CancelTimer" after an "add" instruction.

This is the first time I do this. So please, if a more experienced ML contributor could look at this adresses, would be great.

And many thanks to all the developers for your great work.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Edit:  I've posted this info as a comment in the related bitbucket commits page https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/commits/03bb4ef73a77a5bf4b4dbb05c8b473f789439bb2?at=gui-timers (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/commits/03bb4ef73a77a5bf4b4dbb05c8b473f789439bb2?at=gui-timers) , I supose that is a better place.

Firmware 113 or 123? 

I've been on 123 for a while,  I've tried a couple of different builds and it has always been broken.  I just assumed it was something specific to the Canon firmware. 
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: a1ex on June 22, 2014, 12:52:40 PM
The last relevant change regarding battery level was 2 years ago (a96369c).
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: chris_overseas on June 22, 2014, 12:58:00 PM
AFAIK there's never been support for the grip (two batteries). ML just shows info about one battery (the left one?), the other is ignored.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Audionut on June 22, 2014, 01:04:38 PM
For me, it's the feedback in the Canon menu.  I don't know exactly when the issue first appeared, as I stopped using the grip 24/7, just before the changeover to 123. 

To clarify, I'm using a third party grip, so assumed it was something in the Canon battery changes (post 113) that was the issue.

My interest is sparked, because waltztj reports that it is working in a specific build.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: ansius on June 22, 2014, 01:30:19 PM
No, ML reads only one of the batteries, depending on grip tough witch one if any. Some third party grips seam to identify them as AA battery arrays, thus inhibiting mirror lockup for cleaning.

..Nightly of Magic Lantern for the 5D Mark III running 1.2.3 firmware is very unstable with severe crashing whilst trying to record MLV RAW video with sound.

Just for your information..

I installed 5D 3 ML 1.2.3 version 01.07.14 and had some problems I thought I'd let you know.

Camera getting jammed on 'cleaning sensor' when turning off every time, had to remove battery.
Temp shot to 53 pretty quick - is that high? - camera seemed warm.
Crashed/locked up when pressing magnify while recording
Couldn't record ML_RAW - just h264 (may well be user error of course), although modules were loaded and on. (Computerbay 1066)

Uninstall worked perfectly fine.

Great work you are doing, no criticism in any way!    -  maybe I should try an earlier nightly build? - People seem to be having good results - is this a better option? Are earlier nightlies more stable in any way?

Kind regards..

Cian

Uau, too much problems for the build.
Try one of June or May.
Have you checked the Canon Menu for the sensor cleaning?
.RAW is very stable. Try to put less resolution than 1920 in order to test the RAW.

Guys i 've used ML on my 550d and it was a breeze to install and use. However I am having major issues with my 6d. I 've tried the installation guide/tutorial over abd over and over but no success.

I looked into nightly builds- didn't quite understand but tried to install it on my 6d (may22-2014 built). It seems to have been installed correctly but seems like it's missing stuff. I am lost here. Should have i installed ML 2.3 first and then update or the stand alone installation i did is ok? Please note that no problems to the camera, and NB can be easily removed. Any pointers would be more than appreciated! Thank you

Format card using a cardreader. Insert card into cam and format again. Reinsert card into cardreader. Download nightly build, extract contents. Copy contents to card. Reinsert card into cam. Startup and run Canon's firmware update. Follow instrutctions, don't let the 30 seconds timeout run out and restart cam before. Restart cam. Donate to FSF.

Nowhere. The whole point of the nightly builds is that you test them and tell us that. (If they were well tested, they wouldn't be nightly builds!)

Installed latest nighly build, 2014Jul02, (tried also with earlier versions), loaded raw_rec module and reboot.
The Menu/Modules shows raw_rec OK, but Menu/Movies are all dimmed and no green dot. In Menu/Modules/RAW video shows N/A, but I can set resolution and record. Just after recording, the green dot lights and showing resolution. But when reboot there is no resolution showing and no green dots. Have to start over again every time.

I downloaded last night's 1.13 build for the 5Diii and put it on my camera. I enabled some of the modules (MLV_REC, MLV_SND) and restarted so that I could set the MLV parameters. Upon restarting, I noticed the the entire modules menu was gone and of consequently, MLV recording was not available to me. I've restarted the camera several times, but nothing has improved. Any ideas?

Delete card's ML directory and copy dir + files to card again.

Same thing happens. The modules do not load, and the modules menu disappears. I also tried today's build with the same result.

While the zip files are dated correctly, I noticed that the info in the ML startup screen references July 3rd rather than today or yesterday's date. Maybe that is related.

Sounds like an old AUTOEXEC.BIN. Delete or overwrite card's AUTOEXEC.BIN

Of course. I should have thought of that. I replaced both the folder and the AUTOEXEC and everything boots up just fine.

BUILD 07-16 - Komputer bay 64 GB 1000x

5D Mark III - .MLV 1920x1080 25p Global Draw ON - Continuous! (even pressing focus button_.
                            1920x1152 - 1:30 min. Global Draw Off.

I think so far the best build for MLV. (works as the beginning, without skipping one frame)

Possible Bug, don't let me wrong.
MLV Play after index, start to reproduce all the files.
When you press half shutter, and return to press Play button, MLV work continuously  with out press play.
(work in background).

I not checked external monitor. It's time to do that?

Thanks.

It will kick me out of the ML menu and back to live view after a few seconds, no matter how many times I re-open ML menu! Am I missing something?

Yeah I can confirm this. But I thought this is normal behaviour as I was using ML for the first time on my cam. About 2-4 seconds and afterwards you get kicked out the menu if you don't navigate through it

Post by: a1ex on July 18, 2014, 01:10:01 PM
ML sits on top of some transparent LiveView dialog (these enable the scrollwheels), and these dialogs will timeout if not used (that's how Canon designed them).

Both 1% and Maqs tried a lot of things to solve it (including sending fake events to simulate activity). Maqs found how to use GUI timers, and the next step is probably figuring out what timer to stop or to delay.

The raw recorders contain a similar hack (they modify the duration of the GUI dialog refresh timer, to reduce CPU usage in Canon tasks).

I wonder does the 5dmiii have this same issue? As when I bought it, I remember seeing some pamphlet in there that was describing the features as being similar but only some of the features were available for 6D! I know they are different cams completely, just thinking there might be something on the 5d that might help.

Not sure if this is the right place to post or not

Installed the 1st July 2014 nightly build (my first time use of the software) onto a Kingston 16Gb CF card to use in my 5DMk3 camera.

All seemed ok with the installation, and I went out to take some photos. I dont switch the camera on and off in a session.

I was finding between photos that I was having to press the shutter button partially for a couple of seconds for the camera to come out of what seemed to be a hibernation.

After appx 20 photos, everything went dead.

I replaced the battery - no change.

So I then put a card in without ML installed - still dead.

I then put the original battery back in and the camera recommenced working (obviously without ML).

The replacement battery I had also tried, worked as well when I used that next.

Somehow the CF card had become corrupted I later identified.

Anyone else had this problem or any idea what the problem is. This is the first card I have had corrupt in this camera, and in years of using them never before a Kingston one.

It reformatted ok via my PC, then I was able to put it back in the camera and reformat it in there and it now works fine again (still without ML)

I'm not a programmer so am reliant on all of you guys who are for guidance - thank you.

Incidentally, I went to check the Camera firmware status, and only the Canon one is showing now, obviously not ML because I didnt reinstall it, however I see some topics referring to BootFlag needing to be removed - however my camera still seems to be booting up almost instantly - dont know if this is relevant information for you or not

Post by: Sorin on July 21, 2014, 02:28:43 PM
Greetings!
It's my fist time posting on this forum, and I'm using ML on an EOS M.
Generally, I can say I'm quite pleased with the features it provides but I'm here to report a bug, since i don't know where else to do so.

So I've tried the following settings:
 - manual mode with exposure bracketing of 1 stop
 - continuous shooting
 - ML screen

When I'm doing this, the camera freezes and it won't respond not even to the shut down button. Sometimes the screen makes some gray and red lines and it stays like that. After removing the battery all is good, but the pictures aren't saved on the memory card.
This only happens with the ML screen. If I try using any other canon screen (by pressing the info button) then nothing like this happens.

I tried reproducing this but couldn't, took quite many brackets without problems (apart from a cosmetic problem of zebras filling the screen after the first frame). I use my own compiled binary, but it should be roughly the same as nightly from yesterday. Which info options you have enabled? I have disabled spot meter, only use focus peaking and zebras, otherwise default options.

Put out the battery - fill the battery to full - green in the charger.
Take off the cards.
Put a card formatted form you PC or Mac - format in the camera.
And everything have to work.

Can you describe exactly your process to get help?

I was using the version labeled 2014Jul18 and previous. On the latest one, labeled 2014Jul22 it seems to be working.
It was the same with some older versions in these past 2 months.

So I guess this issue was fixed now.

EDIT: now sometimes works, sometimes it doesn't.
What specific settings should I tell you?

The difference now is that it works when you do exposure bracketing but if you do just continuous shooting, at some point it freezes.

Ah ok, I tried this as well, took 30 frame "burst" without problems. By info options I meant the options in Overlay tab (spot meter, zebras, focus peaking, histogram, etc.). Also any other settings that might be relevant like whether you shoot raw or jpeg (I used raw) and so on?

I've tried as you said, and I've firstly unchecked all of the Overlay tab options, then checked them one by one. It happens when I enable the Magic Zoom (F+HS, Med). I've tried it with all the other options checked and unchecked, and it seems that this is what's causing the problem.
Also when I've changed the picture size from either largest L or RAW to S3 I've got the error message Error 70.
On the previously mentioned picture size, the camera just freezes without giving any error message.

Thanks, didn't get this reproduced with Magic Zoom + raw (though I did get an error message about "Raw error, falling back to YUV" or similar, probably from raw histogram I had enabled), but got it to hang with Magic Zoom + S3, without error message though. I'll enable some debug options in my build and see if I get any meaningful info out of it.

I have noticed that the number of modules available has decresed on a number of recent nightly builds.
Looking at the 500D for example.
The 18th of July list 14 modules but the 29th July list only 10.
The mlv_ modules and the dot_tune have gone.
Also the silent.mo has reverted to a version before the full resolution change which was available in the 18th build.
It there an issue with these modules, i.e. they failed to build overnight?
Would it be safe to copy the missing modules from a previous version, i.e. the 18th to the 29th?
I think I know the answer to the second question would be NO but wanted to check.

Thanks

dot_tune was never available on 500D, mlv is there, and full-res silent pics were not included in the nightly builds yet.

Installed latest nighly build, 2014Jul02, (tried also with earlier versions), loaded raw_rec module and reboot.
The Menu/Modules shows raw_rec OK, but Menu/Movies are all dimmed and no green dot. In Menu/Modules/RAW video shows N/A, but I can set resolution and record. Just after recording, the green dot lights and showing resolution. But when reboot there is no resolution showing and no green dots. Have to start over again every time.
Only me having this problem with Canon 5D mark2?
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: ayshih on July 25, 2014, 02:05:33 PM
When you say that "Menu/Movies are all dimmed", it sounds like you haven't entered LV yet.  It's only when LV is active that items in that tab show up as enabled, and the same is true to see the resolution in "Menu/Modules/Raw video" as something other than "N/A".

Replying to ayshih.

Overlooked entering LV. But when I do enter LV I can record raw but, the dual ISO option remains greyed out on the Expo menu although I can select a recover ISO value by selection the Q button.

On the Expo menu White balance is Auto, ISO 100 Shutter set to 1/38 Aperture set to 5.6 Expo. Override ON.

I believe the 5D2 (like the 50D) is not yet able to do dual ISO video.

Edit: Sorry, I just noticed that you aren't the same person who had the original issue (with the 5D2).  Do you have a different model?

I've tried the more recent build 2014Jul25 for the EOS M and I can tell that now it does work every 2 out of 3 tries. I'm not an engineer, but if you want me to try certain settings for a more accurate description, I can do that, just let me know what to do.

hello all,
I am a long time user of magic lantern. was shooting a lot over the last year with the 1.1.3 version of raw.
now I updated to 1.2.3 and everything looked fine so far.
today I rigged the markIII with my tv-logic58 monitor via hdmi for the first time. all tests before were done without the use of the hdmi-out.
it is now not possible to record longer clips than 1min in mlv 1920:1080 25p mode. icon always stays red or yellow. the build is from 16th of july.
as soon as I disconnect the hdmi everything goes green and fine! what does the performance have to do with the hdmi out?
did I set up something wrong somewhere? checked everything, can`t think of anything?!?
thank you so much for every help! i have an upcoming job tomorrow and if I don`t find a solution I have to shoot in h264;-(
tobi

next step was a total reset of the camera including magic lantern build 07.16.2014. supposedly stable.
same problem, no clips longer than 1min, though camera icon turns green now, before it stops due to frame skipping.
am clueless!!
only thing I can think of right now is that my new monitor, the TVLogic 58 needs more process power than my old one the TVLogic 56. Is that possible?

Guess it's time to summarize what arrived lately in the nightly builds:

- major fixes for external monitors (for 5D3 1.2.3 (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-request/521/mirroring-support-for-external-monitors) and backported to all other cameras (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-request/576/external-monitor-fixes-for-old-cameras); thanks to everybody who submitted image dumps (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=12375))

- SRM memory (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=12528.msg122233#msg122233), which gave a major boost in RAW recording times on 50D, 60D and 7D, and minor improvements in all others For example, you no longer need small JPEG or similar tricks.
- fixed a bunch of minor annoyances (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/commits/all?search=grep%28%22fix%22%29+and+branch%28unified%29) like date/time drawing over ML menu, tick positions in audio meters, histobar accuracy, or RAW quirks in 10x zoom

- 5D3 1.2.3 (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-request/394/5d3-123-port-almost-ready) - please confirm or debunk the speed regressions rumor in RAW recording (1.1.3 was reported to be a little faster, but no solid evidence to draw a conclusion)

I'll be away for a while; have fun and feel free to try the latest pull requests (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests), or even the branches without a pull request (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/branches), review them, and try to fill in the missing bits.

P.S. wanna check some download statistics?

I tried to obtain correct framing with mlv mode like it was on earlier builds. I tried different settings and seems last setting before bricking was turning on extra hacks. Now it just doesn't turn on with or without CF card.

The latest builds works great for me, 5D3.123 with external monitor, using MLV - before I had skipped frames from time to time at 1080p25 with Komputerbay 64GB, now I filled three cards without any skipped frames. The image in the EVF is much more usable with mirroring on. Just wished there was something to give me confidence that I am acutally recording when I am only looking through the EVF.

It does not turn on either with or without card, even with full battery (tried now), just nothing happens, does not connect via USB. I think the firmware has corrupted.
Later will take it to the service.

Hi, I installed ML on my  5d mkII and it worked perfectly, but later I installed a newer version and uninstalled it to the older version. Now the camera doesn't turn on and when I use a different card it turns on and works perfect, also when I use the ML cf card in another camera, the camera works perfectly.

Why does that happened?

Known issue (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/issue/2065/movie-restart-7d-stuck-in-loop-cannot-stop) and being looked into (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=13013.0).

2-screen turns black and white when i 5x zoom(only in the raw mode)
If you're talking about during actual recording, that's not a bug.  What you are seeing is ML's preview rather than Canon's preview, because Canon's preview shows only part of what is being recorded when in crop mode.  (There is some ongoing investigation into improving the crop preview, but it needs much more testing.)  You can change which preview is used in the options; "Auto" means that the Canon preview is used when not in crop and the ML preview is used when in crop.

3-missing the audio features

Perhaps he is woking on continuous 8k raw at the moment ;)

8K?! You would need a 42 megapixel sensor for that ;)

I'm actually thinking to move away from the video side of ML, and let those actually interested in video do the hard work instead. I'd rather focus on the still photo stuff, which is what I actually use.

I might change my mind if the ML community would do these things:

- encourage newcomers to post in the right forum (I've locked the 1.2.3 thread because it was flooded with offtopic questions about RAW/MLV)
- contribute to the user guide (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=11269.0) and help updating the site (everything besides forum is static HTML/JS, so just edit it locally and propose your changes here (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?board=28.0))
- help solving this issue (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=11879.0) instead of just hoping it will be forgotten (it's not funny to do the hard work for free, and then to have third parties getting rich just by selling a fancy GUI, without contributing anything back)

Hi,
I've just tried to install my first nightly build but I have error : no fonts.dat found.
It is build from 08.08.2014, i have extracted file directly to SD from winrar. What is the possible problem here? Thank You for any help.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Walter Schulz on August 28, 2014, 10:07:25 PM
Delete Autoexec.bin and ML directory. Copy extracted files to card and start over.
I suppose you haven't overwritten AUTOEXEC.BIN which will cause this error.
You're sure this was a blank?
If it doesn't help: Format card using a cardreader, insert card into cam and format again. This will give you a clean start.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: ebetecos on August 28, 2014, 11:31:15 PM
OK, maybe I do something wrong.
If I install nightly build , should I have previously update firmware with magic lantern 2.3 and then boot it with card with nightly build prepared with EOScard?
Or should i add firmware file from 2.3 to niglty build and upgrade firmware from canon?
The card is at every step formatted before any new software .
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Walter Schulz on August 28, 2014, 11:42:05 PM
Format card inside cardreader. Format card inside cam. Copy extracted nightly contents to card (AUTOEXEC.BIN + FIR + ML directory). Now run Firmware upgrade. Follow instructions. Done.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: ebetecos on August 29, 2014, 10:43:19 AM
I would like to do that, but i nightly build there is only autoexec and ML folder, so I cannot run firmware update. Previously there was in 2.3v.

Mixup of different ML versions and builds. Autoexec.bin "stable" will look for FONTS.DAT. ML directory "Nightly Build" has no such file.
Please clean up that mess! I would suggest to use Autoexec.bin "nightly build", delete ML directory and copy ML directory "nightly build".
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: ebetecos on August 29, 2014, 02:14:30 PM
But that is what i'm doing. I'm using autoexec.bin from "nightly build" and ML folder from "nightly build". The only thing i use from 2.3 is firmware to proceed with firmware update.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Walter Schulz on August 29, 2014, 02:26:31 PM
Give it a try. Overwrite AUTOEXEC.BIN.

Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: nachordez on August 29, 2014, 04:24:17 PM
Copy all files from 2.3 stable on sdcard. Then overwrite JUST the files in the nightly (so, don't delete other files no present in nightly, but being on 2.3).

For me at least, that works
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: ebetecos on August 30, 2014, 10:55:04 AM
It worked. Thank You for help.
So as I undesrstand I should extract nightly build over stable release? I assumed that nightly build has everything it needs.

The advice nachordez gave works but is just addressing symptoms and will not cure the cause.
NBs contain everything needed for ML to run. Help files are missing, however.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: ebetecos on August 30, 2014, 12:32:10 PM
I've downloaded the newest one, and there is only autoexec.bin and ML folder. To perform the instalation firmware file is needed, which is not there. If I take the one from stable version, then there is error with fonts.dat. So from this symptoms I assume that there is missing something there, althought I'm not an expert here:)

the camera firmware file is sometimes in ML folder iv noticed on couple of occasions.
Aslong as you download the nightly for your camera you are good to go, try installing stable first then install a nightly for the other features.

Sorry if this question is wrong in advance.

Using my 5Dmkii today and used Silent.mo as the shutter was aloud during the vows, i disabled the AF-ON button in the Canon Menu, with silent.mo not loaded AF-ON button didnt focus, great stuff, but with silent.mo loaded the AF-ON button started to focus again even disabled in Canon menu still, is this normal or a bug? just im sure iv read on here some where it does mention to disable AF-ON button with silent.mo, again i could be wrong sorry.

All audio features are in the ML Menu under Audio (first one)

I dont own a 6D, it could be the devs are still working on tweaks for your camera (and also concentrating on most popular cameras) as its slightly new, most canon cameras are the same but some things need tweaking for a specific camera.

I can confirm that since the MLV sound module was introduced for the 6d, a lot of audio options are gone in ML menu.
But MLV sounds works with the canon audio, so audio options can be controlled in canon audio menu.
Audio levels, wind filter etc, all can be controlled in Canon audio menu.

Post by: Levas on September 16, 2014, 01:33:02 PM
@paisleybrew

That are a lot of hot/dead pixels, iso 1600 is mostly clean on my 6d.

You can give the body cap/ manual lens cleaning thing another try.
But now do it with a warmed up sensor...
Put the body cap on, go into liveview/videomode and put the iso up high, iso 6400 for example.
Let it stay in live view on iso 6400 for a while, half a minute or so ?
And the do the manual lens cleaning thing.
This way your sensor is warmed up and has more hot pixels to be remapped by camera.
Hope this helps  :)

That the last build available was on that day, there have been no changes to Magic Lantern, for your camera, since then. Patience...

I'm afraid it's much more serious than that. Look at the date. 9/11. The reason there is no more recent build is because of terrorism! Makes you wonder if the real reason Alex has been less active is because he was captured by ISIS...

I have 5d II,and i am testing Magic Lantern for days.It is really awesome thing.I am playing with raw video,and also trying to see if larger bitrate set on ML can impreove video.Right now i can set it max to 1.6x,anything above stops my video.In help it says to torn off sound recording to get bigger bitrate.I record it with zoomH4 anyways so i don't need sound from camera.My question is how to turn it off?If it is important i use Lexar 1000x 64Gb card

Thanks
The folks who can help with this are probably looking at the Raw Video part of the forum. ;)

Hello!!!
I Love the ML for the 5d  mIII and I have a question !

Is it possible that someone can incorporate a shutter lag setting ? 
I want the shutter to lag but not the flash release
In other words I want the flash to go off when pressing the button, before the shutter by some milli seconds.

Would help a lot !
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Walter Schulz on September 29, 2014, 10:57:53 PM
By "go off" you mean strobe firing?
Why not use highspeed sync? When using this strobe will begin to fire before shutter opens and strobe will be retriggered until shutter closes.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: avipami on September 29, 2014, 11:12:20 PM
Im doing it with studio strobes and the 2nd curtain closes before the strobe gets any light out of it. If I put a delay to the triggers it only gets worse so I figured that the strobes needs to get off earlier than the shutter starts to move. By then the whole frame would get filled with awesome light :) I have tried all different settings and cables and this is the only way i guess.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Walter Schulz on September 29, 2014, 11:16:20 PM
Which lighting problem you're trying to solve? Do you need exposure time 1/160 s or below?
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: avipami on September 29, 2014, 11:19:08 PM
No , like im trying to explain. I would like a shutter lag and the flash firing before. Im shooting at hypersync but the second curtain manages to close before the flash starts burning. Lower part of my image is very dark. 
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: dmilligan on September 29, 2014, 11:41:51 PM
Your concept of what the problem is is all wrong. Flashes fire almost instantaneously, like 1/20000s. The problem is the way your shutter mechanism works. It is a "focal plane shutter" meaning there are two shutter mechanisms, a top one and a bottom one. They are both up and then the top one starts moving down exposing the sensor to light then the top one starts down covering it up. The fastest that these shutters can move from top to bottom is known as the x-sync speed and is around 1/200 of a second. So to get shorter exposure, the top one starts moving down before the bottom gets to the bottom. This is why the bottom of your frame is dark. All you need to do is use a slower shutter speed or the "high speed sync" mode, which fires the flash multiple times while the shutters are moving so that the whole frame is illuminated.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Walter Schulz on September 29, 2014, 11:57:13 PM
You got one thing wrong: Lower part of a picture is located at the upper part of the sensor.

The time needed for the first curtain "falling" down is constant. Strobe is triggered after (!) first curtain hits ground. If exposure time is shorter than x-sync the second curtain is on it's way down. Shadowing is caused by second curtain.

HSS will start triggering before first curtain opens and retriggers until 2nd curtain closes. And most studio strobes won't do HSS.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: avipami on September 30, 2014, 12:04:33 AM
Well. I know all what you have said since 2 years ago. If you have seen the latest trends where a studio flash is used with hyper sync triggers you will know. And a flash does not burn at that speed you are talking about. Then you would have a 10000 dollar single flash. Mine burnes at a 1200/second. And it is the second curtain cutting the strobelight. And the question was not about this at all. It was if someone knows how to do or if it is possible to delay the picture taking part and make the flash output to fire before it. And possibly make it set-able in magic lantern :)

Avipami, I think he is not talking about burn time (t.5/t.1) but about delay between strobe triggered and flash starting to burn.
Got this one wrong after first reading, too.

Hi,
is there a way to get a nightly that includes both, 5DmkII and 50D? I'm asking since am used to swap cards between my Cameras all the time. It seems as if the nightly I installed to get DualISO for the 5DmkII doesn't work on my 50D. Installing the 2.3 stable works fine.

Any hints?

Cheers,

Nope. Look at the logs, it is far from "daily". There haven't been any substantial changes to the main ML branch for several months now. The handful of minor changes to the main branch that may have triggered a new build on 5D3-1.1.3, didn't get merged over to the 5D3-1.2.3 branch probably because either: they were camera specific to some other camera, or they were very insignificant.

Hey everyone. I've got one question.
Since it seems like we're not gonna see another stable build, I'm using nightlies for my 600D. They are great, but there's one thing bothering me: there's this 'developer screenshot' popping up everytime I start the camera and enter ML menu. Any idea how to remove this?
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here

You can #define CONFIG_RELEASE_BUILD in menu.c. If you don't know what that means, then the answer is no.

I've removed the old 2.3 downloads and added install instructions on the nightly builds page. Feel free to check the stuff, suggest improvements, and update the wiki.

I've updated these pages:

http://magiclantern.fm/downloads.html
http://builds.magiclantern.fm

My spare time has dropped to almost zero (usually I can barely find time to read the forum), so please don't expect major progress from me in the near future. I expect things to clear up around January or February; until then I'm stuck with personal stuff unrelated to ML (and unrelated to Apertus).

Title: Nightly build test screenshot warning
Post by: JABA2 on November 01, 2014, 08:21:32 PM
Hey everyone again.
Why the line beta.warn=1 in magic.cfg always returns to 1, even if changed to 0 manually?
I thought this could be a way of disabling annoying randomly appearing beta warning, but it's not.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: dmilligan on November 01, 2014, 09:57:42 PM
The 'beta.warn' in the config is the day of the month the user was last warned, basically it is used to only warn the user once per day. Like I've already mentioned, if you would like to modify this behavior, it is very easy, but you have to modify the code and compile it yourself, there's not another way to do it.

Code: [Select]
CONFIG_INT("beta.warn", beta_warn, 0);
static int get_beta_timestamp()
{
    #ifdef CONFIG_QEMU
    return 1;
    #endif
   
    struct tm now;
    LoadCalendarFromRTC(&now);
    return now.tm_mday;
}
static int beta_should_warn()
{
    int t = get_beta_timestamp();
    return beta_warn != t;
}

static void beta_set_warned()
{
    unsigned t = get_beta_timestamp();
    beta_warn = t;
}

Hello, I'm new. Well, not really, I'm old. But new here. So I hope i'm doing this the right way.

I installed today. Canon 5D Mark iii Firm 123, No real problems. There is one feature I like to use. as I use it on my Mark ii, The motion detect.
It's not working. some of it is working. The screen comes up as though its working. white box, the little motion in the top let corner shows with
(motion 0 ) no matter what setting i use. 1-30 nothing happens. is it something i'm doing or not doing? it works great on Mark ii

another note. steady hand will shoot moving or not moving. 1-30 sensitivity or just not working correctly?

exposure diff seams to be working ok. just a quick test though

Thank you in advance for your time. I tried hard to find a topic on this. If I missed it. Sorry

That's my problem: I have a canon 550d. I have installed Magic Lantern on my sd and it works properly on my camera.
The problem is that i can't update the magic lantern. When i put on my sd card, the new files, with update...the camera doesn't work... 
I just download the update on my pc and put the new files on the sd, as the guide says.. :(
Would you please help me?

This is what i do. I delete Autoexec.bin and ML directory and then i copy extracted nightly build contents to my card. I know that is easy and it is just what i do, but doesn't work :(
The camera doesn't work when i copy the new files, so i extract the sd card, i copy again the first version on my sd and it works. 
So frustrating... :(
What can i do?

and i select my camera: 550D.109
Then i extract the files and i copy them on my sd. I tried overwriting the old files, but doesn't work.
I tried deleting old files and copying the new ones, but doesn't work as well...
Tell me please what can i do... :(

I tried overwriting the old files, but doesn't work.

As I wrote before: "Doesn't work" is not that helpful.

Just to be sure:
You deleted ML directory and Autoexec.bin from the card and copied nightly build Autoexec.bin and ML directory to the card?
Remove battery, insert battery and try again.

If this won't do the trick: If you're copying the "old" (whatever version that may be, you decided not to tell until now) files and directory to the card and cam will startup? Have you tried this lately?
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: photo4ever on December 06, 2014, 04:05:17 PM
Actually i didn't remove battery..i just put the new files on the sd...let me see if it works...
Sorry for my doesn't work. When i sayed doesn't work i wanted to say that the camera with the new files doesn't start. the red light flashes and nothing works. So i have to remove the battery and delete the new files from sd, then the camera works again.
Ok i try removing the battery and i'll let you know
The version that i put is this: magiclantern-0.2.0.rc1.550d.fw109

I have a question. What if install directly a new version, without the first version?
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: photo4ever on December 06, 2014, 04:13:33 PM
Ok, I deleted ML directory and Autoexec.bin from the card and I copied nightly build Autoexec.bin and ML directory to sdcard. Done
I Removed the battery, inserted battery and tried again. But nothing. The red light flashes...and the camera doesn't do anything. So i remove the battery, i remove the sd card and the the camera works again. But with a new version of magic lantern, doesn't do anything. The camera doesn't work. Maybe i should send you a video of what i do? :(
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Walter Schulz on December 06, 2014, 04:16:15 PM
This version is outdated. By far.

Start from scratch:
Format the card using a cardreader.
Insert card into cam and format again.
Back into cardreader.
Copy extracted nightly contents to card
Download http://bitbucket.org/magiclantern/magic-lantern/downloads/magiclantern-v2.3.550D.60D.600D.50D.500D.5D2.zip. Expand it and copy 550D-109.fir to card.
Insert card into cam and run firmware update.

There is no installation screen that asks me to reboot the cam before 30 seconds have passed, but starts to upgrade and after 3 seconds the screen gets black and the red light flashes...

What i've done: I formatted the card, first on my pc and then in the camera, then i put the card in my pc and i copy 550D-109.fir on my card. Then put the card in the camera, i try to upgrade the firmware and the first screen is "firmware upgrade program..loading...and after 2 seconds..black screen and red light flashes....

Maybe (i don't know, i'm not an expert) it's because the camera has already 1.09 firmware...

You typically get the blinking red light when ML sees that the Canon firmware doesn't match what it expects (it does a checksum of the Canon firmware before starting and refuses to start if it doesn't match what it expects). Try re-updating your Canon firmware again (I know you say it's already 1.09, but some bit(s) could have got corrupted or something, and re-flashing the Canon firmware should fix that).

The file you downloaded is e8kr7109.exe.
You have to extract e8kr7109.fir. Just unpack it and copy it onto the card. This fir must be the only fir located on the card.

Post by: photo4ever on December 06, 2014, 06:32:54 PM
Oook! Done it"
Here we are.. done everything as described above there should be an installation screen which will ask you to reboot the cam before 30 seconds have passed.
The screen says..please copy all ml files on your sd card
you may now turn off your camera..to disable the bootdisk flag, change the shooting mode from the mode dial (P/Tv/Av/M)

What now? :)
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Walter Schulz on December 06, 2014, 06:43:12 PM
"Done everything" isn't helpful either.

You skipped quite a few steps.

1.) Did you run firmware update with Canon's e8kr7109.fir first?
2.) If so: Delete FIR from card and copy 550D-109.fir and nightly build Autoexec.bin and ML directory to card. Run firmware update again and restart cam.

I have to copy all ml files..right?

Think of it as a dictionary scrolling through in the index section in the back of a book -- however with Internet nowadays it's actually quicker to google literally everything let alone the search box within this particular forum as well...

No one was around to ask to when a1ex or g3gg0 are looking for resources trying to create this remarkably amazing Magic which is incredible, I would say.

Thanks to you all for keeping this Lantern well lit even during the off-season...  ;D

P.s. Regarding nightlies...It's rather close to being perfect on 1.2.3 and I only go back to 1.1.3 for high speed RAW/MLV needs other than that I've been happy!

To photo4ever
Dude, two pages of suffering, and all of because inattention (read FAQ). All you had to do is:
1) Reflash your camera with official canon firmware 109 (and yes, if you already had 109 firmware, you still had to do it)
2) Flash your camera with stable 2.3 build of magic lantern
3) Replace all ML files with nighly build
In my case (Canon 600D) reflashing with official firmware was key part of whole process, it was not working without this step.

Hi Remco, the stable release has unfortunately been removed from the site. I have been able to find the Magic Lantern 2.3 Stable Release here 'https://bitbucket.org/magiclantern/magic-lantern/downloads/magiclantern-v2.3.550D.60D.600D.50D.500D.5D2.zip (https://bitbucket.org/magiclantern/magic-lantern/downloads/magiclantern-v2.3.550D.60D.600D.50D.500D.5D2.zip).'

I can confirm that this is the correct firmware after successfully Updating a T3i This morning.

Hope I helped!

Hello guys,

I am new on this forum :)On my 5D mark iii I installed ML Nightly yesterday with the Canon firmware 1.2.3, I have a LEXAR 1066x 64gb but when I want to record RAW 1920x1080, the recording is dropping/skipping frames at around 10 or 15 seconds ! My card seems to be fast enough, isn't it? Have I skipped something in the camera menu/setup?

Do you have some advice please guys?

Thanking you!
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Walter Schulz on December 30, 2014, 06:30:15 AM
Not that much info given ...

First find out if your card is faked or not. Turn off global draw, access Debug tab -> Benchmarks. Run Card R/W benchmark (5 min). Press Play button immediately to activate Playback mode. Benchmark run will write a screenshot to the card's root directory called BENCH0.PPM. You may convert this one to JPEG. Upload it somewhere (Picload.org or else) and link it here.
If the numbers are suspicious you may stress test your card by H2testw. Benchmark programms like CrystalDiskMark and ATTO will do fine if you have a decent cardreader with a fast interface. USB 2.0 won't do.

If your card is good for RAW/MLV recording you should check your settings. Load MLV_REC.mo only and try again.

Post by: ferrocium on January 12, 2015, 09:39:02 AM
So forgive me for being a noob, but I have some noob questions that need to be clarified for me and other noobs apparently. :-[  After reading through this thread about nightly builds I am confused as to the proper installation proceedure for ML. 
The moderators on this thread have said several times that the proper installation proceedure is to install a "stable release" first, but there is no "stable release" to install first before installing nightly builds that I can find anywhere on ML.
On the ML website after clicking on the downloads tab the only option to click on is "browse nightly builds" then, it asks you to pick the correct camera, after that the only option is to install the latest nightly build (currently: magiclantern-Nightly.2015Jan03.60D111.zip)

I installed ML(nightly builds) this way on my 60D card about a month ago and have had no problems. 

So my question is:  Since this seems to be the only option, is this now the proper proceedure for installing ML on our Canon cameras now?  Am I missing something?  Is it no longer necessary to install a "stable release" first to avoid stability issues?

Any help from moderators would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you in advance and I apologize if this has been covered already, I just don't want to brick my camera because of my own ignorance.  You are all doing a wonderful job!
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: walter_schulz on January 12, 2015, 10:05:05 AM
Disclaimer: I'm not a moderator ..

At time of writing there are three installation procedures for ML:
1. Easy (For 1100D, 500D, 50D, 5D2, 5D3 (firmware 1.2.3), 60D, 650D, 6D, 700D, 7D, EOS M)
2. Not that easy (For 550D, 600D)
3. Just to confuse the russians (5D3 with firmware 1.1.3)

1: Level "Easy"
- Make sure to run proper firmware version in your cam
- Format card and copy extracted nightly contents to card
- Run firmware update

2: Level "Not that easy".
FIR file needed for firmware update is not included in those builds.
- Make sure to run proper firmware version in your cam
- Download classic ML and extract the fir needed for your cam
- Format card and copy extracted nightly contents to card
- Copy FIR file to card
- Run firmware update

3: Level "Just to confuse the russians"
It's for those wanting to use 5D3 with firmware 1.1.3.
- Update your cam's firmware to 1.2.3
- Format card and copy extracted nightly contents (for 5D3 with fw 1.2.3) to card
- Run firmware update
- Best use a second card to downgrade your cam to fw 1.1.3
- Use a cardreader with your first card and delete AUTOEXEC.BIN and ML directory and FIR file
- Copy extracted nightly contents (for 5D3 with firmware 1.1.3) to first card and startup cam with that card.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: ferrocium on January 12, 2015, 07:29:41 PM
Walter,
Thank you for your helpful reply.  So it looks like the ML install procedure has changed in the last few months from what it used to be.  Watching a few months old tutorial on youtube it looks like not too long ago the ML website had a "stable release" that had support for all the cameras to download first, and then you would have to replace files with nightly builds to get the nightlies to work properly no matter what camera you were using.
Now, you choose what camera you have from the downloads tab and follow the instructions for your specific camera.  As you state, some cameras can direclty download the ML / nightlies while some others look like they still require a "stable release" ML version first.  I see that on the 550D, and 600D pages, they instruct that you must install the stable release first, as you mentioned.

Let me know if I got this right.
Thanks again.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Walter Schulz on January 12, 2015, 07:35:52 PM
Neither is wrong.
But I didn't mention to install "stable".

And be aware that ML development mode (called Rolling Release) and static content (as in Youtube) tend to divert quite soon.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: escho on January 12, 2015, 10:55:33 PM
Why not copying the existing fir-files of 550D and 600D from "stable" to the platform-folder of the source-code, so that they can be included in the nigthtly builds for those two cameras, too?
I know, there was a discussion about this some time ago somewhere in this forum or in bitbucket, but I didn´t understand the arguments, not to do so.

Hi guys. Stephen here from ireland. Iv had ML on my 60d for the past year and was wondering is there a way i can put ML on a sd card for both my 60d and 700d on the 1 card. So no matter what card i grab out of my bag, magic lantern would work on both cameras.
(Software for both cameras on the one card)
this will be my first time on a nightly build.
Thanks in advance..
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Walter Schulz on January 15, 2015, 11:17:03 PM
Nightly builds are not "unified". Therefore you need different cards for different cams.

Computer at hand? You have to replace AUTOEXEC.BIN and ML directory with the versions valid for the cam you want to use.

Not worth the troubles, IMO.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: hoopy on January 15, 2015, 11:24:00 PM
thanks for your quick reply. so you reckon it would be better to have 2 sets of dedicated cards for each camera. i was using the V2.3 on my 60d and there was .fir files for several cameras. thought i might of been abel to just add the 700d to the list on the same card some how. thanks man
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Walter Schulz on January 15, 2015, 11:48:05 PM
FIR files are camera specific files needed to set cam's bootflag and to make cards bootable during installation. After installation they are not needed anymore. Old 2.3 "stable" was indeed unified and able to run on different cams. But using the same card on different cams was not recommended because some settings are written to ML\Settings. Endless source for mixups.

hi,
maybe it's a something like FAQ, but i tried to use the forum search (and probably failed).
I was very busy and I didn't follow ML development, today I visited this site to see what is new, so i downloaded the latest nightly build for 5D mk3 fw 1.2.3 and noticed that it is half year old build (magiclantern-Nightly.2014Aug07.5D3123.zip). something happened and mk3 version builds are stopped? i checked that 1.1.3 is fresh (jan 2015 as expected)
thanks for answer, and a happy new year:-)
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: jipo on January 26, 2015, 10:45:48 PM
well, i did a second search and i found that 1.2.3 build is created only when there are new commits. ok, but why is merge&build policy for this specific branch different than others? i fully understand why silent pics are still separated, but i did a quick look to the overall changelog and i see a lot of commits to modules, that are probably generic ones, 1.2.3 5dmk3 included. this is little bit confusing, even for the senior software developer:-) if someone returns after some time, this forum doesn't help well how to get the latest version (of course without experimental stuff like silent pics). sorry, i know, as an non-contributor....

I noticed that as well regarding RAWMagic throwing down the HAMMER and somehow halting the nightlies for 5D3 1.2.3!

Is this really a big deal? NO... IMO only because I believe I can get more out of the latest nightly 1.1.3 (longer recording times for RAW/MLV as well as FRSP, etc...) whereas 1.2.3 is just simply out of date but can still be used since it still works well for the most part depending on your shooting situations.

I sometimes upgrade to 1.2.3 if need to use HDMI output for certain shoots in order for 'Producers' to see the actual shot on external monitors in real time. (This is not avail in 1.1.3 due to Canon's restrictions)

But for the most part I stick with 1.1.3 to get the most out of my 5D3 in terms of RAW/MLV, FRSP, Dual-ISO and so on...

As I previously stated "I'm a happy swinger between 1.1.3 & 1.2.3" as long as you know what you're doing during the upgrade/downgrade process!
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: dmilligan on January 27, 2015, 03:21:34 AM
The only differences of any consequence between the main branch and the 5d3 123 branch are some recent changes to the io_crypt module and about a dozen lines of very minor changes. In other words there is practically no difference between the 123 branch and the nightly builds. Most commits to the repo over the past 6 months have been to "desktop" tools (mlv_dump, raw2dng, cr2hdr, etc) which reside in the same repo. A change to one of these tools triggers a new nightly build, even though no code that is actually part of ML for the cameras has changed.

So the fact that there are recent nightly builds, but the last 5D3 123 build is from August is a bit misleading. There really hasn't been any development progress of any real consequence in the last 6 months.

From all indications, the lack of development progress has been due to personal reasons with devs and not anything really to do with RAWMagic.

Post by: DeafEyeJedi on January 27, 2015, 06:59:49 AM

Sorry but a proper bug report doesn't look like this.
There are 6 builds with date "Jan 2015" ...
You haven't mentioned the video mode you were usings: Native Canon (H.264) or MLV/RAW?
You haven't mentioned the modules you loaded.
Steps to reproduce? Steps you tried to avoid this problem?
At which state does this error occur: Beginning or ending of record? Else?

Magic Ball mode: Most likely you are trying to run RAW_REC.mo which doesn't support audio at all. You have to run MLV_REC.mo together with MLV_SND.mo

I show this threath says done... but dont know where the solution is.

Thank you for answering.


I´ve got the 1.1.3 canon firm with ML nightly built. (there are some isues when installing, but it seems to work perfect)
and I want to update to canons 1.2.3. firm.
 
If I directly put the canon .fir archive in the card it sends the error "unable Update file error. Please check the memory card and reload the battery and try again"

I want to install firm 1.2.3.and then magic lantern in the 1.2.3.

Reset cam to factory defaults (including C.Fn) and retry. If this won't work we missed something obvious or your cam has to be transfered to http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?board=45.0

I don't get WHICH Nightly to download. ON 5DMKIII under the 113 firmware it states that I cannot use the install package for first installation. And asks me to download and install the 123 firmware...
So which is it.... There are two 5DMKIII download options... 113 and 123. 113 states that I should download 123. But 123 has not been updated since 2014-08-07 00:01:30 +0200 -- whereas 113 is the most reason one from this February...

I would really like some input here... And perhaps someone could go about changing the highly misleading information on the nightly downloads section...

Thanks

If WTF is your word of choice... WHY on earth do you even bother to answer...

What is misleading there...

Well for ONE... The nightly builds which are CURRENT and NOT Old are ALL for Firmware 113. Under 113 it states that one cannot install with Firmware 113 but has to download firmware 123... For Christ Sake... Put the Updates of the nightly where it belongs then, in the first place....

All this confusion. And super poor documentation. Charge money for this software and get someone with half a brain to write the manual and clear up the misinformation on the site...

I myself would gladly pay $100 for the software is such were the case !!!


And if a rough mouth is ALL your brain can deliver - then DONT bother answering.

Hi

I'm new to Magic Lantern. I installed the nightly build but I did not install the stable release before. Is that bad? I feel like half the features don't work.

- How can I uninstall the nightly build?
- Where can I find a link to install the latest stable release of Magic Lantern for a Canon 6D.

Thanks for the help!

And is there a user guide somewhere for Magic Lantern? I've heard there are all these cool features.

Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Walter Schulz on March 06, 2015, 06:52:05 PM
Top of page -> User Guide
There is no stable build for 6D therefore you will not be able to do it wrong by following installation procedure described in the nightly download page.
This is where you find the uninstallation procedure, too.

1.1.3 ML is to be installed on 1.1.3 Canon firmware only (and not on 1.2.3 Canon firmware)
Just follow this link for first install:
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=2602.0

and then copy paste from nightly!


Yes, I can see what what was the reason of confusion. I just want to highlight this to ML web admins attention: Nightly build for 1.1.3 really says "to install ML, please upgrade to (Canon) Firmware 1.2.3." ?






Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Walter Schulz on March 06, 2015, 10:20:54 PM
Yes, because in ML 1.1.3 nightly you can't set cam's bootflag.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here

Hi there,
Using 60D 1.1.1, Nightly.2015Mar26

I'm trying to fix an issue where I can't adjust settings while I'm recording. Was recording a show last night and needed to just swap cards out and hit record. Some of my cards didn't have the global draw options I liked so I tried adjusting on the fly but I could only see the menus but not change them. Is there a lock setting somewhere I need to disable? The version 2.3 seemed happy letting me change stuff. I'm sure I've just missed something in a config, but I would rather go back to the older version if it fixes the issue. Thanks in advance for any help.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here

Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Datadogie on March 26, 2015, 08:06:28 PM
Just to make sure delete (not format unless you want to use EOScard to make the card bootable again.)
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: gaulpordon on March 26, 2015, 10:02:56 PM
I am right in thinking that global draw options can be toggled on or off while recording? I only say this as I just tried 2.3 and I couldn't do it in there either-making sure I deleted all magic lantern files from the card before I started. I can adjust things that I've enabled prior to pressing record, but I can't enable new stuff.

I was sure I could do this but I might have dreamed it :)
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here

Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: gaulpordon on March 27, 2015, 12:10:07 PM
I just deleted (not formatted) everything off the card, cleared the user and camera settings and extracted the zip from a fresh download of Nightly.2015Mar26.60D111

The card was still bootable so I could just press the trash can to enter the ml menu, once again to get beyond the initial message.
In movie mode with liveview activated and the ml shooting info visible I press record. I leave record running while I do the rest.
I press trashcan to get into the menu. So I move along to the Overlay menu by pressing the D-pad, and go to the Focus Peak option which is currently greyed out.
At this point I see a red thumb wheel icon in the bottom corner which has a stroke through it to suggest it is disabled.

I press the Info button which brings me to the expanded focus peak options, of course they are greyed out. The settings can be cycled using left and right on the d-pad but are still greyed out.
On the previous page (Overlay) which has the ability to enable the focus peak, I can't make any buttons activate this setting.
When the camera is not recording, this is activated by pressing the SET button, but while recording I have no idea.

Hopefully you guys can help.

Thanks.

Alright folks, full-res silent pictures are now in nightly builds, finally!

The main limitation remains: you can only do fairly long exposures, but even so, it's a very powerful tool for timelapses. You will need a ND filter for daylight usage.

Check the full-res silent picture thread (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=12523.msg143510#msg143510) for more details, and please don't complain about overexposure issues.

This feature also comes with major backend changes on the photo RAW backend (for example, at least in theory, tools like ETTR and RAW exposure feedback should be a lot more consistent on 6D and 600D).

Not sure if I should add this here, but after using the nightly with FRSP merged.

MLV recording has become very unstable for me.

I will try newest nightly (magiclantern-Nightly.2015Apr06.5D3113.zip) now and see if MLV is working better.

On current build, 29/3. Almost every MLV file has a random pink frame here and there or resolution "jump".
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: a1ex on April 06, 2015, 05:15:49 PM
Are you sure the issues do not happen in the nightly right before merging fullres pics? (2015Mar28 - 5327699)

There were no changes to LiveView RAW backend or to mlv_rec in fullres silent pics, so it's unlikely to be related.

See also http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=11017.msg143402#msg143402
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Kharak on April 06, 2015, 06:18:54 PM
Yes, then it is most likely a build from before 29th.

But I see in the 29th build: 7bc8b4d "mlv_rec: fix compilation" So I assumed this could be the case.

Also: 70743c3:

"mlv_rec: make mlv_dump a bit more defensive with fwrite return values"

4c5829f | g3gg0
mlv_rec: mlv_dump now allows altering the frame rate e.g. for direct playback of full res silent pic shots using mlrawviewer. also rewrite the frame count in MLVI header.

I am not too good at reading in to the actual changes you guys have made. I am not a programmer at all, but those are the only  recent "mlv_rec" module changes I can see in the nightly builds. But the ROM change on the 28th, perhaps?

"5327699 | Alex
ROM autobackup: copy data to RAM before saving (no longer interferes with LiveView)"

I try and revert to older build and see when it starts. But ofcourse if no one else reports this issue on any build since FRSP merge, then I assume I am to blame somehow for this misfortune. Though I am running everything as I usually do when recording MLV.

I have not tried raw_rec, I also want mlv to work cause that is what I use as I need sound.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Kharak on April 27, 2015, 12:28:06 AM
Just to update in case anyone else has/d same problems as me.

I tried different things, updated to newest nightly (19. april), I still had same issues after that. Reformatted cards. I deactivated raw_twk module and these broken frames became more rare, but not completely gone.

So I reverted back to a build from February 20th. I believe this is the last build I was using before updating to the merged FRSP build (29. Mar) and I started getting broken frames.

Recorded a lot of long shots with low light, high light, changing light and what not, just different stuff to challenge the sensor, in case that was causing these broken frames to be written to the card and I did not have one dropped frame or broken frame.

I am sorry that I can't give a more technical idea to why I was experiencing these issues. raw_twk was causing the camera to crash everytime I took a picture with FRSP, so the raw_twk module had to be deactivated and the module might have had some kind of interference with mlv_rec too, I don't know.. It seemed like the broken frames were much less occuring after I deactivated the module. Before I did that I experienced broken frames in almost every shot and often several times.


Title: Can not play MOV movie files on 50D
Post by: sniperx31 on May 08, 2015, 12:29:49 PM
Maybe this bug has been reported before.
With the latest nightly build, 50D can record MOV video as before (and they are playable on PC/Smart TV etc.) but still can't show it on the LCD screen through MLV player. I did necessary module loading but no success yet.
HOWEVER, 50D can take RAW video and it CAN show it on the LCD screen (I just say WOOOW!).
50D is being able to make fantastic things after 7 years! Thank you ML people!

I'm curious about the apparently stalled status of ML for the 600D. The most recent build available is magiclantern-Nightly.2015Apr19.600D102.zip, but I see that other cameras have much more recent builds. I also see that there is no thread for the 600D on the Camera-specific discussion portion of this forum, and that https://builds.magiclantern.fm/jenkins/job/600D.102/ states that the project is disabled.

Is the 600D no longer supported? Or do more recent ML builds include code that does not apply to the 600D and therefore there are no new builds for it? Or (most likely) do I simply not understand how the ML build process and availability works?

Hi,
Do I have to re-install the latest nightly build over the previous one or not ?
Thanks.

Delete ML directory and Autoexec.bin and copy extracted nightly build contents to card.

Last build up to date 2 "error message" each 10 shots in MLV RAW.
Same message when card is full while recording.

With restart Off-On everything was fine.

If you want some log tell me.

No more new nightly builds for firmware 1.2.3?

I'm using an Atoms ninja blade and I'm wondering whats new in the firmware but don't really want to downgrade and lose HDMI out.

Working with a Canon 5d Mark ii here with 2.1.2 firmware.

A colleague formatted the camera (even though I warned him) and deleted Magic Lantern. I re-installed the nightly build yesterday and it's working fine, but I've no longer got audio on my livescreen view. I can see levels in the audio menu, but not live. Is there a way to change this so I can monitor levels on the fly?

I'd insert an image here, but it's not entirely obvious how to do so on this forum. I just get getting (http://)

Hello again,
sorry for the incovenience ..
yesterday I reinstalled last stable ML but I want to try the dual iso features again .. can someone tell me wich nigthly build for canon 5dmkii can be considerer stable?
I tryed the last but with my camera it drain the battery even when turned off. Thx

Post by: Walter Schulz on December 11, 2015, 05:58:22 PM
Remove ML directory, remove *.FIR, remove autoexec.bin from card. Copy extracted nightly build contents to card.
Remove battery. Insert battery. Insert card. Startup cam. Test.
Before removing card wait for some seconds after opening card compartment door and after LED activity stops.
Report back. If problem persists please give detailed report what you have done so we can reproduce your steps.

The problem with your reports is that there are lots of things you ommited. You may think we (as nerds) are weird but if you tell "I just downloaded the file and did nothing and battery drains." our mind will translate that to:
- Download files
- Do nothing
- Battery drains. Even batteries not inserted into cam are draining. Even batteries inside charger are draining.
Sounds funny, but this is what you described!

You may take it for granted that everybody knows you transferred files to card, inserted the card into the cam, started up the cam, took photos and all. But! We don't have access to your cam, we could not see the steps you take and are absolutely dependend on every single bit of information to reproduce your issue.
So: If the problem persists, try to find the steps it takes for you to reproduce the issue and report them here.

Post by: andrea73 on December 12, 2015, 12:59:43 AM
Ty for the answer.
I did all this step:
download the last nightly built
formatted the card from the camera x2 ( i have 2 cards)
charged the battery for firmware installation
unzip the file and copy all folder and only the 5dmk2 firmware
put the card into the camera
run the firmware upgrade and saw the fix blue light
restart the camera (put off the battery)
set on the camera and navigated into the new menù ( i come from the stable version but i unistall it 1 or 2 month ago)
found the dual_iso module and set to on
restart the camera and did some try with dual iso.
saw the battery red the day after in the morning
recharged the battery and another try yesterday night
it drayned the battery from 100% to 80% only whatching the menu .. i took only 2 images .. and while i was writing in this forum another 3% lost without do nothing.
set off the camer, put offf the battery, the monitor was little warm and i put off the card too  same like the monitor bit warm
retryed again with same issue (monitor and card begin warm) so i deleted the ml NB and installed the stable version and stoped drain

Today after i saw your message i tryed the second card and untill now it drain only 1% from the 8 pm (now are 00:25 for me)
psame procedure as you said before:
on camera set to off put off the memory card and the battery
put in the right card with NB in and the battery
set to on
enjoy

 i followed your procedure on the second card, deleted stable ML .. copy the new NB
put off battery .. enjoy

If you were looking at the menu, that means both the display and the CPU were active. Guess what - they both need power!

Try doing a controlled test - do the same thing (for example, record video) with both Canon firmware and ML, and compare the battery drain rates. Tip: ML displays it in the Debug menu.

If the camera started from the first try, this would suggest old battery.
If the camera did not start from the first try (you had to take the battery out), this means incorrect shutdown, or you removed the card too fast.

Hi and sorry but I d't know where can I put my post...

I've got a problem with installation of Magic Lantern in my 5D Mark II. I did format my card, I cleared all settings, installed the files downloaded in the website written 212 for my camera, I copyed them on my card and then It appears the version is not the good one while tryning to install it on my camera. Do you have any idea to resolve it? Thanks in advance! And I tryed it with two different cards, one 4GB and one 64GB.

Format card in camera. Copy Canon's firmware file version 2.1.2 (5D200212.FIR) to card and run firmware upgrade.
Format card in cam again and start ML installation once again. Report back.

When I told you battery drain I mean in 10 minutes the battery come from 100% to 80% without do anything .. I was typing in this forum, but now its working good .. from 15 december untill now it drain only 2% (I think my battery its bit old, 4 years old exactly) with the camera set to off.

This is strange, I'm constantly getting this "card/camera really exFAT?" error whenever I format card in canon menu in camera(5DM3).

Some other errors i'm getting is "frame skipped, stopping recording" with 1920x808 23.976fps on lexar 1066x 119gb card, and "this card cannot be read remove card 1"

It seems to me that every time I update to a newer build I get more problems with ML.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: dmilligan on February 23, 2016, 03:35:30 AM
You have enabled the option in MLV menu to not split files at 4GB, but this requires an ExFAT formatted card, and your card is not formatted as ExFAT. Depending on card size, Canon firmware might format the card as Fat32 instead of ExFAT. So either turn off this option or use your computer to format the card as ExFAT.

If you encounter a problem when you update to a new build, figure out how to precisely reproduce it, and then go back and try older builds and see if the problem goes away. If it goes away, please report it and tell the builds where it worked and when it started failing, and exactly how to reproduce it. It's very easy to fix issues if you give and exact build when it first broke, and steps to reproduce. Otherwise, if the problem doesn't go away with older builds, well it was there all along, you just haven't encountered it before, and falsely associated the problem with newer versions.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: itsDPmikey on February 23, 2016, 08:38:56 PM
thanks for the response.

My cards are all formatted as exFAT, ALWAYS, I don't format them any other way.

Also the problem(error) is consistent with and without the 4gb split option.

The Problem started to occur with the latest build. So i'm not sure what to make of it..

I'll do as you suggested, reproduce it and maybe capture the error on video.

On 650D cards > 32 GB will be formatted as ExFAT in the cam. How does 5D3 handle this?

Post by: axelcine on February 23, 2016, 09:06:02 PM
Cards 64 and below are fats. 128 and up are exfats. So the bible says.

But...

I just formatted my Lexar Professional 1066x with exFat on my computer just to verify this post and verified it with 'properties' - exFat. And then reformatted in 5dIII.113... Voila. Back to fat32.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Walter Schulz on February 23, 2016, 09:09:15 PM
There is always confusion about GiByte and GByte. So I have to ask: Does a "Lexar 128 GB" (as advertised) card fall into first or second category?
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: axelcine on February 23, 2016, 09:23:54 PM
My humble card says Lexar Professional 1066x 128 GB UDMA 7 with a clapperboard symbol with 65 in it.

I'm low-formatting my 128 with exFat, takes a while, and then I'll reformat in cam. But, hey, I got this idea: Both my SD cards in 5d113 and 5d123 are fats. So maybe the cam formats the CF in accordance with the SD?

I'll put the CF in cam, take out the SD and reformat CF. If exFat is still there, we might have learned something. I'll get back in a minute or so.

OK. Low level formatted and verified exFat with MSI winX/64. Reformatted in 5d123 without SD-card. CF was returned to fat32.

Next I'll try is to format CF as exFat and NOT reformat in cam, and then go out and produce some footage.

Well, I didn't make Steven Spielberg level footage, but the exfatted card works excellently without in-cam formatting and remains exfat. So: On 5d don't format CF in cam if you really don't have to. Put exFat on in PC.

Next I'll be formatting my 64GB with exFat and let it sit in cam w/o formatting away from exFat.

OK. I formatted the CF 64GB I use in 5d123 > exFat. Then I took out the SD-card with ML, reformatted in PC to exfat, reinstalled ML and fir'red the card in cam without in-cam reformatting. Voila: exFat on 32GB 1000x Lexar Professionel 150MB/s SD-card. With ML running as smooth as a new-born shitting in his diapers.

Did the same with my 5d113 including reinstalling settings. SD is still exFat. And works with ML.

So I wonder why the install instructions in the nightlies keep telling us to format in PC, then in cam and then copy ML to the card. IMHO an exFatted card loaded with ML in the PC and fir'red as usual in cam should do the trick - and you'd escape the annoying return to fat32.

Point taken. I did not realize that camera formats in 32 and not exFat. I should have known this tho my fault.
but just an FYI I downgraded to 1.1.3 from 03/27/2014 and everything just works BEAUTIFULLY!
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Walter Schulz on February 24, 2016, 05:17:42 PM
It would be fine telling us if you are now using ExFAT. I take it for granted your previous error was caused by FAT32 file system vs. ML setting exclusive to ExFAT.

Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: axelcine on February 24, 2016, 07:40:59 PM
Did my little test all over again - with the difference that the SD cards in both cams (with ML) are now exFat, just to eliminate the cams from following the format from the SD-card (until yesterday they were fats, until I forced exFat on them, Ml'led and fir'red - ML works just fine.) I formatted both CF cards, the 64GB in my 123 and the 128GB in my 113, and both were "reduced" to fat32, so obviously my two cams haven't learned how to do exFat. I put both cards back in my card reader and PC-reformatted them back to exFat. The cams accept the exfatted cards and install dcim and misc folders without any problem.
So my experience tells me, that what I have thought to be true - that 5d formats bigger cards (128>) with exFat - isn't correct, at least with my cams. From now on I'll only rely on my PC to exfat my cards.

Even the respected DP Review maintains in their thread 5D Mark III video time limit, that 128GB cards will be exfat-formatted in cam - which my cams don't seem to know.

Of course the major weakness with my argument is, that I haven't tried cards larger than 128GB.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: tron on February 24, 2016, 11:13:16 PM
Both of my 5D3s with firmware 1.2.3 format 64GB cards as follows: CF 64GB: FAT32. SD:exFAT.

I want both of them to be FAT32 so as to back them up with my hyperdrive (the specific non-latest model does not understand exFAT even with latest firmware).

I can format SD card with a specific utility to make it FAT32 and recreate the directory structure manually (this works with both camera and hyperdrive) but it seems complex to also put ML above that.

Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: axelcine on February 27, 2016, 06:54:45 PM
Of course that would be the solution if your raw videofiles never exceed 4G. Normally I'd never make so long shots myself, but maybe once in a year a job comes up, where one cam has to continue filming beyond the factory limit. Then I'd feel safer with exFat permanently mounted instead of having to remember to prepare a card specifically for this job. So from now on I'll have exFat on all cards in my 5dIIIs. If there should be any kind of a problem with this I'll post ML Universe immediately.

But, @itsDPmikey, don't blame yourself too much. Until I tested the stuff I believed, that 5DIII would format 128's and higher with exFat.

Post by: DeafEyeJedi on February 27, 2016, 07:01:42 PM
exFAT for life! I'd try and find a way to get that hyperdrive of yours fixed somehow to make it read/write exFAT otherwise what's the point of sticking to the limitations of FAT32 and fear these nasty dropped frames once you hit the 4GB barrel?
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: axelcine on February 27, 2016, 07:23:19 PM
HyperDrive ColorSpace UDMA3 specifications indicate, that it will work with fat32 OR EXFAT -  BUT... Individual files must be smaller than 4G. Strange...!

Post by: tron on February 28, 2016, 01:51:58 PM
I was commenting on FAT32/exFAT only. I do not shoot video. I thought of exchanging experience regarding how our 5d3s behave with formatting various cards. I have already 2 hyperdrives and I do not intend to buy a 3rd one. Even my "latest" which is the UDMA model (2 gens behind) cannot be upgraded to support exFAT. It would be best if Canon gave us a format choice in menu but I know this is not going to happen...

Hi there, I'm in need of some help resolving an issue with using magiclantern-Nightly.2016Feb28.550D109 on my 550D.

I followed the installation instructions (format card in camera, check Canon firmware, install etc.) and everything worked out fine. However, following the installation it seems like the camera has difficult actually using the ML firmware. When I boot up it cleans the sensor (normal?) and then presents me with a black screen as if the camera can't display the ML menu. I can press 'Display" to bring up the normal Canon UI, but all that's changed is the card memory display on the bottom right. Am I missing something? Nothing else seems different, and I certainly don't see any of the menus etc. that ML show on their site, nor can I find any new camera options (ISO etc.).

First post, so hopefully that all made sense!

Thanks in advance.

I managed to take a break from my usual stuff and cleaned up a bunch of things in ML. Here's what I'd like to merge in the next few days:

- [MERGED] pink frame fix for mlv_rec (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=5473.msg165522#msg165522) (credits: beauchampy for helping narrowing down)

- [MERGED] small fixes for both raw_rec and mlv_rec (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/698/raw-recording-fixes-both-raw-and-mlv/diff), such as blocking the zoom key while recording to avoid crashes, or blocking all the buttons after recording stops to avoid accidental data loss

- [MERGED] Black level fix (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/484/black-level-fix) - finally managed to clean it up and polish the remaining rough edges

- [MERGED] Benchmarks and self-tests (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/610/benchmarks-and-self-tests-refactored-as) moved out of the ML core and refactored as modules (this frees memory for 600D to be re-included in the nightly builds, and hopefully also fixes the "busy" bug (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=13706))

- [MERGED] lots of Lua fixes (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/683/lua-scripting-lots-of-fixes-plus-api); this also includes a bunch of core fixes (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=14828.msg164972#msg164972). I just want to bring it to the point where it actually runs all the example scripts.

- [MERGED] 60D 640x480 crop mode centering fix (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/693/fix-mv640crop-mode) for raw recording (credits: dfort and xiga)

These are for later:

- MLV Lite (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/685/proposal-completely-replace-the-old-raw) (dmilligan): there are still reports that it's a little slower than raw_rec, so I made a small change (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=16650.msg165538#msg165538) for which I'd like some feedback.

- the crop_rec module (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=17021.msg165229#msg165229) and the patch manager (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/687/patch-manager-wip/diff) library

I'd appreciate any help in reviewing the code and testing the above pull requests.

Last nightly builds (2016-04-15 and 2016-04-13) are failing for 50D, with this error in the build log:


Code: [Select]
../../src/zebra.c: In function 'clearscreen_task':
../../src/zebra.c:3862:25: error: implicit declaration of function 'idle_kill_flicker' [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]

So it seems that functions "idle_kill_flicker()" and "idle_stop_killing_flicker()" are not well defined in /src/zebra.c

I do not see this error on recent nightly builds for other cameras.

There's something we have to test in order to have it fixed? Could be this error related to the recent stubs reformat? (perhaps some stubs missing for 50D?)


--------- Edit --------------------

Perhaps the problem is in this code:

Code: [Select]
#ifdef CONFIG_KILL_FLICKER
static void idle_kill_flicker()
{
    if (!canon_gui_front_buffer_disabled())
    {
        get_yuv422_vram();
        canon_gui_disable_front_buffer();
        clrscr();
        if (is_movie_mode())
        {
            black_bars_16x9();
            if (RECORDING) {
                fill_circle(os.x_max - 12, os.y0 + 28, 10, COLOR_RED);
            }
        }
    }
}
static void idle_stop_killing_flicker()
{
    if (canon_gui_front_buffer_disabled())
    {
        canon_gui_enable_front_buffer(0);
    }
}
#endif

That originally was on "zebra.c" but now has been moved to "powersave.c" (line 406). 

My C programming knowledge is very rusty now, after many years of not practising it, but it seems to me that this code contains the actual function definitions for "idle_kill_flicker()" and "idle_stop_killing_flicker()", so the definitions are missing in "zebra.c"

I read in the change log of the nightly builds that the magnify button is blocked during recording to prevent the camera to freeze.
But doesn't this interfere with the magic zoom option ?
In the older builds, when magic zoom is disabled, the camera freezes when magnify button is used(during recording), when magic zoom is enabled you can use the magnify button without the camera to freeze(during recording).

That originally was on "zebra.c" but now has been moved to "powersave.c" (line 406). 
Yes the powersave move is at fault, some stuff needs to be added I guess.

I've tried some things, like added:
Code: [Select]
static CONFIG_INT( "global.draw",   global_draw, 3 );
static void black_bars_16x9();

#define ZEBRAS_IN_LIVEVIEW (global_draw & 1)

#ifdef CONFIG_KILL_FLICKER // this will block all Canon drawing routines when the camera is idle
extern int kill_canon_gui_mode;
#endif
In powersave.c under #include "lens.h"

And:
Code: [Select]
extern void idle_kill_flicker();

extern void idle_stop_killing_flicker();
Somewhere in powersave.h, which made things move along a bit yet still crash since I id not define them right :(.
Code: [Select]

Now it builds correctly for 50D.

I have just done a quick test in camera. Everthing seems Ok, zebras (RAW and LumaFast) work, and powersave settings in liveview photo mode work Ok also (turn off global draw, dim display).

You can reproduce it by simply loading the module and restarting?

Yes.
1. Setting ML defaults
2. Restart cam

-> Module tab missing in 7D


650D: No problem.

Found it (copy-paste error from bench.mo, which had one extra level of submenus).

The 7D selftest menu should have an extra item: RPC reliability test (this is for testing the communication between the two processors). Can you try it?

Got it, I should include it in the nightly builds, so it no longer falls behind.

For the testers, there are 3 pull requests awaiting your attention:

RAW recording fixes, part 2, including a small speedup: https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/710/raw_fixes-part-2/diff (test build available here (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=17091.msg165845#msg165845))

MLV Lite with the same fixes: https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/685/proposal-completely-replace-the-old-raw/diff (test build available here (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=17091.msg165845#msg165845))

Update summary for the latest nightly:

- lua_fix (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=14828.msg166022#msg166022) (was merged in previous nightly, but had a small problem with focus backend on some lenses)
- lua_fix also comes with some bugfixes in ML core, the most important ones being:
  - focus backend (fixed crash when Step Delay was turned off)
  - exposure setters (max roundoff error 1.5/8 EV, or 1/8 EV for integer raw requests)
- raw recording fixes part2 (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/710/raw_fixes-part-2/diff) (see also this benchmark (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=17091.msg166027#msg166027), there might be a small speedup, not fully confirmed)
- advanced intervalometer (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=8431.0) (dmilligan)
- small UI fixes in movie mode (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/681/recording-mode-ui-info-reorder/diff#chg-src/bitrate.c) (Licaon_Kter)
- 600D builds are back (thanks irvcobb for testing)

Why you don't downgrade to 1.1.3 ?
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Walter Schulz on May 04, 2016, 02:33:37 PM
Maybe because they want to use the features included in 1.2.3?
A1ex made it clear ML for 1.1.3 and 1.2.3 (1.3.3) serve specific needs and will - at time of writing - coexist.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: beauchampy on May 04, 2016, 03:50:24 PM
Why you don't downgrade to 1.1.3 ?

The achilles heel of 1.1.3 is the lack of clean HDMI output. Most of the time, it's fine and it works just great. However when you have a series of interviews lined up and you don't want to risk it all on a single Komputerbay CF card and the intricacies of RAW recording, you just gotta have that Atomos backup.

Post by: markodarko on May 05, 2016, 08:22:19 AM
Plus why would anyone drop 1k on a smallHD 501 and want to monitor a lo-fi image?

If you're referring to the HMDI out when running v1.1.3 my understanding is that it's still full HD, but not clean - I.e., what you see on your screen will be on the HDMI monitor too including all overlays from ML etc.

I use an external HD monitor on my 5D III / v1.1.3 with no problems.

I think it's possible to set ML to have zero overlays when recording and hence essentially get a pseudo clean HDMI out (although I've not tried it) with v1.1.3 but of course at the expense of having no overlays. It was certainly possible to do this with the 5D II according to this video (http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=PSM5m7hYtNQ).

May be worth looking into if you don't want to go down the v1.2.3 route.

Cheers,

Mark.

Nightly build magiclantern-Nightly.2016May07.7D203.zip is missing the following ML subdirectories:


No problem for me, I added them manually. Just letting the devs know.

Other camera model users should check that these directories exist before updating to this build.

Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: a1ex on May 08, 2016, 06:17:25 AM
Did you *have* to add them manually? As in, it didn't work without doing that?!
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Ottoga on May 08, 2016, 07:03:39 AM
@A1ex

I didn't know whether they would be created automatically in camera or not or, if the camera would get upset if they weren't there at boot time. As such, I took the cautious approach to manually create the directories avoid any risk.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: a1ex on May 08, 2016, 07:09:45 AM
They are created automatically, and these two directories are mentioned in the change log. So I don't see the reason for scaring other users away from this build...

Some more pull requests where you can help by either reviewing the approach, the code, by finding stubs for your camera, or even by digging a little into the code:

- pre-recording feature for raw_rec (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/728/pre-recording-feature-raw_rec/diff) (I thought this one will generate a little more interest; maybe I'm wrong, or people simply weren't aware of it?)

- RscMgr memory (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/731/rscmgr-memory-60d-todo-7d/diff) (done for 60D, todo: 7D, maybe also 50D and 700D)

- menu: proper handling of RAW/H.264/JPG-specific features (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/730/menu-proper-handling-of-raw-jpg-h264) (I need some guidance about which approach to choose)

- fix H.264 recording indicators for files larger 2GB (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/729/fix-recording-indicators-above-2gb) (not tested at all)

- vsnprintf from dietlibc (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/705/use-vsnprintf-from-dietlibc-instead-of) (easy coding task: fix the warnings)

New to this forum and new to ML.  Made several attempts to install ML on my 50D-1.0.9 and keep getting a red error message at the bottom of the screen to restart my camera.  I assume by restart to power down and back up but I always end up with the same result.  ML install attempts made for most recent version and the previous version.  I'm surely missing something basic but don't know what it is.  Any advice appreciated.

This was valid for 550D before 24/06/2015 and 600D before 22/04/2016. Most other cams made transition from two-stage install quite some time  ago.

Next nightly will bring a few minor improvements, the most interesting ones being:

- temperature formulas updated (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/738) (escho)
- after formatting the card and restoring ML, camera is now auto-restarted (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/736) to reduce the chances of data loss
- fix for recording indicators above 2GB (5D3, 6D) - issue #2530 (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/issues/2530/remaining-time-indicator-goes-negative-xxx)

That's all I've been able to test for now, sorry about that.

Some nice works in progress:
- Support for BULB mode in full-res silent pictures (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/735/frsp-bulb-support/diff) (Greg)

- 1100D zoom button fix (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/743/misc-cleanups-some-gui-button-codes/diff) (not tested)

Hello,

I've just downloaded the last nightly build for my 5DMKIII - 1.1.3 firmware.
All MLV modules are loaded, but I don't seem to have all the options I see in the forum for the sound.
Here I just can select the sound recording frequency, the beep and the play volume.
How can I access to all the sound parameters as digital gain, input source, …
I have made a search but can't find the answer.

Thanks for any help on this.

Waiting for a newer nightly build for the 5D3 1.2.3. Still get occasional pink frames which I don't know how to easily fix. My 256GB and 128GB cards are slow as hell to start. Been using an SD for ML and CF for the data.

I'd love for a simple program that would batch ALL mlv files to DNG+WAV. Like, taking 1TB or a couple hundred clips and dump them into another 1TB of DNG's and WAV files, using standard C-LOG. MLRAWVIEWER is what I use and on El Capitan but it crashes a lot and cant add the directories without it crashing or idling. Only about 15 mlv at a time, as anything above that crashes.

If anyone has any suggestions, please say so. Thanks!

EDIT: another thing I miss is the option to have the stereo track feature one track with the inner microphone at AGC levels and the other track the shotgun mic connected externally. That way, one could have a backup track. I remember doing that with the external mic at different gains, so as to prevent distortion. Very useful and a way to disregard AGC completely. Sadly, the 5D3 ML nightly builds do not feature this anymore. It was really a great feature I'd love to have back. So much amplitudes in event videography... sudden screams and constant whispers.

Next build will have some small updates:

- WB shift values back on the LiveView info bar
- 5D3: white level changed from 15000 to 16300 in LiveView, giving about 0.15 stops of extra highlight detail (details (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/732/5d3-attempt-to-fix-vertical-stripes-so-it/diff#comment-23278056)). I tried to fix the vertical stripes in camera, but that didn't work as expected, and noticed this one while I was at it.
- 700D: minor fixes (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/750/700d-minor-fixes)

Hello,

I'm a german newbie. I have stille installed magic Lantern on my 50D. I discovered in youtube that MagicLantern supports DotTune automatically. But I can't find thes item in my magic lantern menu. Isn't it available for the 50D? I have installed the canon firmware 1.09 an ml-nightly .2. That is shown in the display of my camera. Isn't it the right version. If so, wha t version I have to install?

Thanky you so much for your help.

Kind regards

Hey I've got the mark III. I Recently ordered the ATOMOS Shogun Inferno for my future RED Scarlet-W. for now I wanted to know if anyone knows if magic lantern works with atomos monitors. I don't necessarily want to record on to the Inferno just use it as a monitor but still get RAW plus I don't think it's even possible to record raw through hdmi.

Updated the nightly page with some new sections:

- Modules: some additional modules that can be installed on top of the main builds.
- Utilities: mostly post-processing tools.
- Experiments: works in progress, such as 10/12-bit raw recording, crop_rec and so on.

They are not yet complete, but at least it's a start.

I've been using Nightly.2017Mar30 on my 5D3 113.

In almost 90% of cases my audio is not synched with my footage. Besides that the begining of the audio is found either at the end or in the middle, vice versa.
It makes it almost impossible for me to synch my audio to the audio of my field recorder in post.

Any ideas what I should do?

In the latest build (2017-06-03 22:09) I've seen that change 4126b56 affects modules/dual_iso/cr2hdr.c and the comment says "temporary patch for module_get_string API".

I’d appreciate some advice and info on the latest Magic Lantern installs for my Canon 600D.  I haven’t used my Canon for video for quite a while and I did have an early ML version 2.3 installed which worked fine - thanks again to the ML team!  Checking again I’m now seeing references to a ‘Nightly Build’ for the 600D which I understand has Audio Meters and even an option for headphone output.  The most recent one seems to be dated August 7, 2017.

I’d love to have at least the live Audio Meters but I’m not a risk-taker with audio and don’t know exactly what the status of these Nightly Builds is.  If they work fine and are stable why have they not been incorporated into the current version of Magic Lantern, which still seems to be v2.3? 

Does anyone have a suggestion as to the most recent and most stable Nightly Build for the 600D which includes Audio Metering?  Maybe the most recent one if fine?  I know that there’s an installation guide at the top of this thread, but wondered if there there are any unlisted special precautions that need to be taken when installing compared to the normal ML v2.3?

Thanks in advance.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: Walter Schulz on August 16, 2017, 03:48:14 PM
Dev team switched to a release model closely related to "Rolling release" (look it up in wikipedia) some time ago. You won't see anything like 2.3 in near future or - more likely - ever. 2.3 is considered to be outdated, unsupported, dead in the water and - if I understood correctly - devs regret its release altogether.

For those asking which release to pick answer normally is: The newest one because it contains fixes for bugs comming with older releases.
Of course this is not true everytime because bugs may be introduced by added features/code changes (which will be fixed soon, if reported ... most of the time). There is no guarantee ML will *not* brick your cam. It hasn't broken my 650D and 7D in years and I run untested "branches" as a reviewer, too.

Hello Walter.

Thanks very much for that informative and reassuring reply.  I've gone ahead and installed the latest 'Nightly Build' without any obvious issues and will try and get to grips with the audio later on today.

off topic , no ML software related but an ML hardware, maybe a stupid question but what do you think of focal length reducer to be adapt on a 5D3 (sort of a speed booster) when using the 4k crop mode on the 5D3, especially when using the 3.5k 1:1 centered x5 mode which off course depends on the resolution and aspect ratio that your are using, say for example with a 1.64 crop, an adapter that will reduces focal length to 0.72x , to adjust the image size to closer 1.18x crop factor. I don't even know if that is possible to do but was just curious to hear your opinions. thanks and sorry if this is off topic.

Post by: Lars Steenhoff on August 27, 2017, 11:25:13 AM
There may be an adapter for medium format lenses, for normal 35 mm lenses there is no such adapter because of the flange distance on the canon.
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: comurit on August 27, 2017, 11:39:25 AM
yeah thanks, I know there is not such an adapter for sale, but I am curious to know if someone would build one from scratch like they did for the Samsung NX1 http://www.eoshd.com/2017/06/samsung-nx1-now-full-frame-first-look-canon-mount-nx-l-speed-booster-italy/   or it's totally impossible to overcome the flange distance problem?
Title: Re: Nightly Builds - try the very latest stuff here
Post by: nikfreak on August 27, 2017, 11:57:19 AM
Maybe it could be possible to not damage the camera with some caveats. You would have to lock the mirror if your magically adapter needs to be fitted between body and lens. You then wouldn't be able to focus to infinity at all besides having to focus manually anyways etc.

Rather read and consider this about fisheye / ultrawide lenses (https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=15750.0)

I went to download the appropriate ML firmware.

The ML release says it's only for 2.0.2.

Before I downgrade my firmware - 

quick questions, has anyone used the ML Firmware on Canon Firmware 2.0.3?

Is it be stable?

quick questions, has anyone used the ML Firmware on Canon Firmware 2.0.3?

Yes and I find it as stable as 2.0.2.

A year ago someone did a pull request (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/792/update-to-eosm-firmware-revision-203/diff) and it worked so well that I posted builds (https://bitbucket.org/daniel_fort/magic-lantern/downloads/) made announcements (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9741.msg178394#msg178394) and tried to get users to post test results (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9741.msg178885#msg178885). The pull request sat there without updates, accumulating conflicts as it fell further behind in development until I decided to post a pull request for 2.0.3 for the bleeding edge crop_rec_4k branch (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/879/crop-rec-4k-eosm203/diff).

Well it was a good exercise but it would mean so much more if someone other than me would say that they want it. Come on guys, 452 downloads of the original 2.0.3 update and 70 downloads of the crop_rec_4k version and there is nothing to report?

Unless you... what?! (https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2942/34078165241_8e580d46aa.jpg)

(Similar to what I was thinking last night, Nuno, but today I am here, still breathing) ...

Spec: 5D3 running firmware 1.2.3.
(On a Lexar Card 32gb 2000x running 300 MB/s. 2 Komputabay 1000 cards).

I think there are few or inadequate instructions or warnings. This is not ML's fault. It is down to the fact that there are so many posts and it is impossible to cross-correlate certain ammends to instructions with warnings.
But based on recent experience, please allow me to suggest an edit to a front page to eradicate one stream of issues. Moderators/Admin? Please feel free to edit/update this in your current instructions on the 5Dmkiii' 'installation' instructions (link below).

I have recently had a 'stall' where my 5D3 stopped during the install process happen to me so my solution posted here has been 'tested' but I did safely recover by following this process.

I wanted to downgrade to 1.1.3 due to many loading/setting up instructions not seeming to be relevant to 1.2.3 and I wanted some of the crop features in 1.1.3.
Uninstalled ML for 1.2.3. (Note: This flow is essential before installing new Canon Firmware)

Uninstall ML
CHECK YOUR BATTERY IS FULLY CHARGED OR USE MAINS POWER IF YOU HAVE IT
Run the same firmware update that you ran when you installed ML using the same ML file that you used to install it the first time.
The firmware procedure will start.
On screen Restart camera will appear.
Wait so that ML can uninstall (see 'countdown' text at the base of your camera screen).
After ML has been uninstalled you should see a message that says: 'boot flag has been disabled.'
Restart your camera.
Check all is OK.
(In every case I suggest waiting until the red light on your 5D3 has finished flashing/writing to card or camera before dropping out batteries or turning it off or pulling any cards out).


NEW ML 1.1.3 INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS
In my experience, this is from a firmware downgrade from 1.2.3 (or any other firmware).
Before you downgrade, after uninstalling ML (see above), as it says, you have to ensure that you set the boot flag to make the SD Card bootable.

Updated instructions (my experience and solution pointed out in red)
So I have updated the instructions on the following page: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=5520.0

1. Format card on PC (must use card reader) - (note: if using a Mac, format using Utilities in the Applications folder)  and then format on Camera.
2. Put card back into card reader (PC or Mac) and copy the 5D3-113-bootflag.fir file to the card root directory.  Get it here: http://a1ex.magiclantern.fm/bleeding-edge/5D3/5D3-113-bootflag.fir - IMPORTANT: CHECK THAT THE FIRMWARE YOUR CAMERA USES IS 1.1.3 or your camera will go into a 'loop' with the red light flashing and nothing seeming to load and your first thoughts are that you may have bricked your camera. You have not. If this happens to you, AFTER the red light has flashed, turn off the camera and drop out the battery at the same time.
2a. Install/downgrade the firmware that you wish to downgrade to by formatting your card (as above) and by installing ONLY the firmware .fir file on your card. Run the firmware update as per Canon instructions. Note: You cannot download older firmware updates from the Canon site. You must download any older .fir files from other websites.
After firmware downgrade, check on your Canon screen that it has installed.
3. Put the card back in Camera and go to the Firmaware update section (Canon Menu) do an update with the 5D3-113-bootflag.fir  Make sure you have a full battery, a dead battery during any firmware update could be a disaster.
4. Once the firmware update is finished you have set the bootflag on your camera. 

Install 1.1.3 as per instructions her on the forum.

Home page -> Download -> Download nightly builds -> select camera model and firmware version -> Installation.

Should I change anything to the main page to make it obvious this is the recommended installation procedure?

Should anything be changed in the short install guide? The guide at http://wiki.magiclantern.fm/install is... well... a wiki page, editable by any forum users.

Hi Walter. My instructions were the same instructions from RenatoPhoto; suggestions came from my experience following them and didn't want people to miss the point not to load the 1.1.3 boot .fir unless you have the 1.1.3 .fir firmware installed.

Been using ML for (has it been a decade)? 50D, 550D, 70D and recently going back to the 5D3 to experiment even more with this stuff so I will defiantly call in and check your peer-review enabled manual/help text platform.
I patted myself on the back when I got a 14 bit 1920x818 file (About as high as I can get on a Nightly Build (but 14 bit? Bravo, ML).

Admit, getting 4k to work on my 5D3 has been finicky and I cannot match the results some people are getting <yet> and there is, as you put it, 'inadequacy' and 'flaws' but what part of 'experimental' in the term Experimental Build would be devoid of those? Solution? Report. Wait.

PS: I used to write tech manuals if I can be on any help in my spare time (currently 'spare time' being between midnight and 7 in the morning although have been known to work during sleep).
