Nice work David. Melbourne city shot was particularly good.

From my experience, you can't beat working on the full res CR2 files compared with the undercranked FPS .MOV files... but it's tough on your shutter, especially at 1 fps. That said, I've been a huge fan of the FPS override for TL, even with the mushy image compared with the worked and downrezzed CR2 files. I've recently started testing the RAW video builds for timelapse (inspired by the work of Africashot!), hoping for sharper as well as more workable images... using 20130524 build I can only get a minimum FPS override of 1.5 fps before jitter and frame corruption rears its ugly head at 1.0 fps. I'd be interested in hearing from anyone else who is mainly interested in ML RAW for timelapse projects... the DNGs are definitely a step forward for the way I work on some scenes. The ability to import DNGs into Lightroom and apply exposure tweaks, grad filters etc, is fantastic. The DNGs also do away with my hot pixels that appear in h264 output (strange). But finding the right combination of ML settings to maximize results is a bit hit and miss for me at the moment... anyone else got some results/thoughts/comments?

Shot on my trusty 5D2 using ML2.3, intervalometer (shooting CR2) as well as FPS override (shooting h264 MOV).

I posted this in the 5d2 RAW thread but I felt this also applied to any of the cameras

after hearing about the new raw feature I was trying to find a cool practical use for it, and the big thing that came to mind was time lapses without adding shutter actuations

video link....

This test took 1 hour out behind my house, pretty dark aside from the full moon blasting the scene
5D Mark 2 May 20th build
640 ISO
T/1.5
FPS Override 0.178
RAW Video 1880x1250

I had to really adjust the color in post because the RAW kicked the magenta up a lot
Also had artifacts at the bottom of the frame

and there was this weird problem where every other frame was the first frame...
so instead of capturing 323 I actually captured 162

162 frame time lapse without adding any actuations

Yomommassis: have you done any further testing, and managed to get rid of the repeating first frame? Your still image looks excellent: I've been using the FPS override for timelapse a lot lately (stable build only), and have been very disappointed with the image quality (particularly sharpness)... doesn't cut well with timelapse shot using RAW stills only. Would be happy with a FPS overide that produced "only" 1000 RAW image files to work on later in Lightroom or similar.
