General Help Q&A / Re: Why I can´t increase resolution
« on: May 11, 2020, 09:37:56 PM »
The Magic Lantern terminology can be hard for a newcomer, but when you are trying to ask questions. It helps a lot if you use more familiar terminology. 1.0 x crop, do you mean a 1:1 ratio of the sensor? or entire sensor the full frame, width and height?

General Help Q&A / Re: Is MLV using the full width of the sensor?

Crop mode as in pressing the loupe/magnifier, not “crop_rec4k” modes, you need fps override to “tame the beast” when you crop. Because in canon firmware, when you press loupe x5/x10, the liveview fps rate goes to “30p” regardless of your canon fps settings.

But as a rule of thump when shooting raw just use fps override all the time, except when shooting in some of the crop_rec modes. Like 50/60p 3x3 crop_rec freezes camera when using fps override, but 1920 1:1, 1920x1920 1:1 and 3.5k center can handle fps override. The others i dont use, so dont know.

Yes, full width and height 1920x1280 3x3 Pixel Binned.

With FPS override you get sound recording in RAW, if you have sound enabled in RAW options.

FPS override disables sound of h264 recording.

And if you use canon “24p” its 23.976 and crop mode will be recorded at 29.976.

And i easily have continues 14 bit 1920x1280. If you have problem with getting continues at 14 bit, you might need a faster card.

Its RAW sensor data, so its your color space of choice.

You can remove the black bars by disabling Global Draw, in the Overlay Tab. Alternatively under Display Tab, in the Clear Overlays option you have different ways of hiding the Overlays. Clear overlays is also one of the options removing your overlays when you hit Record. So here you're in a evil circle, but under RAW settings, set your aspect ratio to 1:1 1280x1280, you should only see the frame you record.

The Rectangle with the diagonal line can be disabled under Movie tab, Movie Tweaks and REC/STBY notify: Red Crossout, set to OFF.

Shameless bump.

The grayed out areas are quite distracting when framing.

Also Zebras don't follow the Desqueeze, but are displayed across the full 3:2 area of the screen. While Focus peaking seems to squeeze in, but focus peaking might be operating differently, is the peaking "peaking" the Liveview and not on sensor level?

If you import dng’s in to Resolve, it all depends on your color management.

What your input is set to, what output you have. Log-c output can rarely handle a +2 exposure without introducing a lot of noise and clipping, bmdfilm has always been a very dark log. That is why I think its not a good idea to universally set the exposure to +2. But manually setting an exposure, sure, the more options the better.

For compressed output like h264, prores etc, I can see it can be a problem.

I personally adjust the exposure individually on all clips in resolve.

I too recommend that you don't hardcode any exposure change to the DNG. But optional or a slider, that would be great and even other metadata.

Resolve 16 free version that i have does support CR2.

dont need it, i just wait a 1s or 2 so that resolve updates the image.

Resolve can import CR2, sure, but as you wrote yourself, the processing is extremely slow and the colors are somewhat off.

If you convert to C/DNG, the processing and rendering is done in real-time and the colors are correct.

Resolve can't handle CR2, you need to use Adobe DNG converter. CR2 to DNG

Then you have a real-time playback of your Timelapse.

What the hell... That makes no sense.

Raw Video / Re: MLV RAW 14-Bit vs 12-Bit vs 10-Bit Comparison on 5D2
« on: April 18, 2020, 04:41:06 PM »
Go to Sub-Menu of Zebras, under Overlay Tab.

'When Recording: Show' - Note: as you are on 5D2 this might decrease the recording time as it requires more processing of the 5D2, so you might want to set it to Hide.
'Use RAW Zebras: Always'  - this will also show you a high quality RAW zebra overlay in Image photo review, really helpful.
'RAW Underexposure: 0 EV'

Thanks for the test, its nice to see the comparison first hand.

But I think you made a mistake in measuring the scene, ML Spotmeter does not measure the RAW data, unless you use RAW EV Meter.

 For a much faster and accurate scene reading, I recommend you expose with RAW Zebras and RAW Histogram, especially if you want to hit the sweet spot of ETTR to maximize the DR. You can clip the Green channel and still reconstruct the highlights with Blue and Red channel. In certain scenes you can clip two channels and still be able to retain the highlights with some Post magic, but clipping two channels I would only recommend for Sky or naturally super brights, not clothing or walls as it can introduce unwanted artifacts in the reconstructed areas. And never ever faces.

Could you post 1 DNG from each test sample?

Nice! sticky this tread!

I feel safer getting my 3rd mkiii now!

I noticed Slimraw lossless compressed dng’s can not be transcoded to MLV.

Does Mlv App “expect” lossless compressed dng’s from MLV_dump to be able to uncompress/transcode them back to MLV?

Slimraw does a better compression than mlv_dump, I’d say about 10-15% more compression or put it this way, you can compress the lossless output from Mlv_dump with slimraw by another 10-15% or so, lossless.

Would you consider looking in to supporting lossless dng from Slimraw?

Been a couple years since I shot with my mkii. But i recall the 5d2 didnt go past 1600 ISO, anything above is digitally pushed in camera, but the anolog gain in the raw file is the same across 1600->3200->6400 (Or it was 3200 max). But feel free to correct me if I am wrong.


Shooting raw, the ISO is only affected by by the Analog gain meaning ISO 100, 200, 400, 800 etc. ISO 160 is a digital pull from iso 200, 320 is a digital pull from iso 400 etc, these intermediate ISO’s do not translate to the final file, you can see it in effect by using RAW zebras, there will be no exposure change between iso 320 and 400.

And I cant play the video on my phone, but my phone is pretty messed up.

This is just a heads up!

Yesterday I got an error message I had not seen before on Batch_mlv. It's a bit of user error combined with design flaw.

Yesterday I found out that I have forgotten to bring my card reader, luckily I found my old Sandisk card reader deep in my laptop bag. The Sandisk reader does not work properly, as it will not finish any Copying or processes past 99.9%. But I'd atleast get 99% of my cards and I'd have to deal with the last 0.1% somewhen.

The bug is in its essence when you have the Output Folder Location set to a drive that is no longer connected to the computer. You would ofcourse not do this on purpose, but when you open Batch_MLV it prompts the window for your Input folder Location, but in the background the Output Location is by default set to the location of your previous conversion process, so if you were exporting to a T5 SSD and then disconnect it and few days later want to export to another location, this bug will most likely occur.
 So no matter what Input folder you set, Windows prompts an error message saying "There is no disk in the selected drive". This lead me to believe my Sandisk reader had gone completely bananas. Bought another Card Reader today and experienced same issue and by this time I was thinking my cards had become corrupt.

Not until I noticed the Output Folder was set to a Drive Location not connected anymore.. I changed the Output and set the Input and it was all good.


If you get "There is no disk in the Drive" error message, check that your Output Locations is set to a Drive that is connected or "exists" for that matter.

Just a heads up.

Thanks again Danne for this really nice tool.

APP haha that's a new one.

Could you post the files? I’d like to compare myself.

If you could share your post process of the raw aswell.

SlimRAW can not be recommended enough.

Feature Requests / Re: What About Black Shading ?
« on: December 19, 2019, 10:15:20 AM »
I think BM Ursa does the black shading as a Sensor Calibration as you need to keep the camera with lens cap on for 5-10 mins for it to finish, this will remove the magenta cast that develops over time. I don't know how the Red equivalent works. But Ursa is not like DFA where you need to do it in post, you probably can, but that is not how the built in black shading works.

I remember some Sony TV's also had built in Image cleaning (maybe they still do), basically it was "White Shading" with a built in White Screen that you should leave on for 5 mins to get clean blacks and colours.
