I consider 14fps anamorphic as a photo burst mode or timelapse mode more than a movie mode preset.

Agreed. Try using both Dual-ISO & Circular Polarizer together for decent results. Indeed, it's such a killer combo!  :P

Circular Polarizer.

Thanks for the correction to my typo @Walter Schulz!

I'm diggin' the new 5K ana in 14p mode big time @Danne. Especially with the full-shutter feature enabled, dial it down to 1/14th. Throw a Circular Profiler Polarizer on and you're golden!  8)

Quite frankly, I've tried running MLV Apps (in multiple copies) in the past and utilize them all to try to save the extra 20-30+ minutes or so. CPU was definitely up there.

But man, I could literally cook fried eggs on the Mac while it was singing its' praises.  It should be an user's choice rather than MLV App's default. :o

..In mac based Switch I do multiprocessing(four exports) in parallel going through aerender working with a base ae project template. This makes exports worth the time in ae whereas the one by one export from gui way to slow
Off topic  :P

Ah, thee good ole' days of Switch. Such fond memories and yet I still use it for Dual-ISO CR2's, DF averaging on MLV's (I still can't figure out how to use the DF feature on this app) :-\

Anyway, I've just compiled v1.9 on my OSX. I will give this one a test run. Thanks, @Ilia3101 & @masc for the updates as usual!

Mad props to @Ilia3101 for starting this thread. Absolutely vital for us to stay on top in order to be futureproofed. Great call!

Why that? Use 4K anamorphic mode to use (nearly) the full sensor width. Then you won't have (much) additional crop!

Bingo. Spot on!

@Danne's Experimental ML Builds can be located here from this link for ML Capable Cameras including the M:

Definitely interesting. Thanks for sharing @earlph!

I’m deeply in awe and this is all fascinating work @histor!

Mind sharing your post workflow? :)

Did another test with a Carl Zeiss Jena vintage lens..

o0o0o0ohh that's a gnarly piece of vintage!

Big thanks to Danne: I used 4K anamorphic rewire mode and got not a single corrupted frame all over the day! That's awesome!
Graded all clips with the upcoming MLVApp v1.9.

That's incredible. Big shout out to @Danne! Was this shot in 2.35:1 re: AR?

Lanczos was good. AVIR is even better. You really should try it! ;) Future plan is to remove all the ffmpeg scaling functions and to insert just AVIR.

Copy that. Will do. Didn't realize AVIR even existed within MLV App.  :P

Yepp... have seen this color shift since a very long time. One of the reasons why I mostly don't like to use chroma smooth. If someone knows how this algorithm works... maybe there is some small bug or it is the way it has to look

Agreed. It's been a while that we have seen one without the flickering. I just tried this the other day and can confirm the mild flickering. No deal breaker though as long as you don't push them too hard in post.

- I have no idea. All I found: when using chroma smooth, set RAW black level +1 or -1 to default value and the shift disappears.

Ah, good to know. I will definitely try this trick out. Thanks for sharing!

For topic focus pixels: better using a correct map instead of blurring the whole picture with chroma smooth. Chroma smooth is kind of "last resort" if nothing else helps.

Absolutely. Avoid CS whenever possible unless needed. As we should.

Indeed, lovely colors as usual and thanks for sharing this beautiful test footage @masc!

..."Stair effects" are reduced to a minimum with that. And from now on we can have 12bit resized ProRes4444 footage (OSX only), with slightly better color than exporting with FFmpeg!

Fantastic to hear. Definitely worth checking out. Gonna compile once again tonight. Lately, I've been using Lanczos even when exporting in H.264! ;)

Especially if you only plan on doing all the grade solely within MLV App prior to exporting.  8)

Can never get enough of your marvelous work @70MM13 and indeed I agree w @Luther that I enjoyed how you utilize the sounds with metals and beat makers, etc. Feels so authentic and the mood is spot on!

If you don't mind sharing your workflow... Assuming you used MLV App to fine tune this and export as ProRes? Linear color profile as per usual, right? Ha.

Following this thread as it seems an important topic to keep up with. Fun facts. Thanks guys!

-double posting pls delete-

DAMN @ZEEK’s at it again!  Love these Ducks! This is all great stuff and thanks for collaborating.

When it is finished completely it will be merged into master branch.

Fantastic to hear!  :D

It is possible in terms of space... that's the crap you can buy. It is technically impossible in terms of speed. The adapter must convert between parallel and serial transmission. This will always be slower! And additionally it will never be faster than the limit of the CF interface in the camera. So why one should need this, when loosing resolution or bitdepth, just to record some more minutes?

Amen. KomputerBay has been dreadfully spot on over the years -- even their customer services are flawless!

Buy 2 cards and a little HD with CF interface (e.g. NextoDi Nd2901), so you can record until your 2 or 4 TB are full, with just some seconds break to change between the cards.

Straight up. Done deal. Great call, @masc!  8)

@AF-OFF — if you don’t mind me asking would you please elaborate on what do you mean by having issues w Dual-ISO?

I must admit this is indeed inspiring!

Waiting for this since march! :) On the EOS M this is great (if not best option atm), on EOS 5D2 I hope it is even better.

Also forgot to post this yesterday...

Wonderful shots @Ilia3101 and I am definitely pleased to see this former bad boy still kicking ass!  8)

Please let me know if this is doable.  If yes, I can upload one of my corrupt files, so you can see if you can get MLVApp to recover and work with it.

Should be doable. Indeed, this should be a high priority. Thanks for sharing your story @IDA_ML!

I got an eosm2 from dfort yesterday. But I have very little time atm and doing other things so I see when I could take a look at this.

I'll be standing by w all of my support. M2 has been taken out of it's bag and will take a spin on this build 'EOSM2_dfort_2019Jul27.EOSM2103' from @Danne's Bitbucket for the time being.

Finally  :o :P ;)

Hooooooraaaaay @OlRivrRat!!!  :o  8)

I will not have too much time pushing these builds. I can do it from time to time but I will focus on eosm with the little time I got for this now.
There are so good tutorials from dfort and others both on compiling and how to work with bitbucket etc...

Thanks so much for this. Will definitely add this branch and most definitely will rephrase these awesome tutorials from @dfort along w your scripting magic @Danne!  ;)

Can someone with a 100D please try and reproduce the above bug?  I want to see if others also experience it or is it just me.  If it is just me, I would like to know what am I doing wrong.

That's gotta be rather frustrating. Has anyone else tried this yet? I'll see if I can find time to grab my 100D and test this out to see if it's reproducible.

...The MLV App seems to render the images badly at least they don't look half as good when exported as DNG and opened in Lightroom so I don't really know how to grade in MLV App.

If you don't mind me asking... what were your export settings set to? Would be happy to get yourself squared up on MLV App to get the most out of your 5D2 while ur at it.

Please reply within MLV App to keep this thread on topic per @reddeercity. Thanks!
