General Chat / Tips on Syncing Audio During a Studio Recording?
« on: August 31, 2016, 10:23:27 AM »
So we're doing a little studio live recording type of videos.
I'm having issues figuring how to sync everything up in the post.

What's going on:

The guitarist is recording music as we shoot. He sometimes does multiple takes. Later we have to edit the video to have all the takes that THEY have chosen to keep in the recording.

I hoped Plural Eyes 4 would work but it can't sync most of the shots. What I tried is using the actual audio track which didn't work and then using the separate guitar track (it's louder in the camera's captured recording). Nope hope for automation?

General Help Q&A / Re: Buy a 7d? slow motion?
« on: August 31, 2016, 10:16:52 AM »
My issues with slo-motion and the two cents.

These cameras shoot 60fps and with lower res mainly. 60FPS is too little for a good slo-mo.

My two cents are get an iPhone :D iPhone 5s shoots with a 120fps and iPhone 6 and above shoots 240fps.

I shoot with 240fps and then I can slow it down even further with The Foundry's Kronos plugin in After Effects.

The only thing is, the lens won't match, but you get artifact-free slow mo (especially if you don't work on it in the post)

Ahh gotcha guys. That's what I thought but I also read something about setting the boot flag on on the actual camera. Any tips on how to disable that? Or I shouldn't sweat it at all?

PS. I'm not gonna uninstall it> Just wanna get to know all the aspects about it

Alrighty thanks! That works! What I did is instead of the .sh file you linked (cause that didn't work for me ) I used the Macboot java app and ticked make Canon Bootable or something along those lines.

Once I booted I could get into the ML menu by clicking the bin button.

My only three comments are:
1. it's a little bugy, the visual draw of the elements in live view sometimes glitches. Ahhh, just like I remember ML to be. (used it on T4i back in the days)
2. I couldn't find my way to get into ML from movie mode. Any tips? I remember reading something baout this thru the thread but don't wanna go reread all 13 pages.
3. Setting Iso thru the flash button (enabled it in Cfn menu in Canon menu) is glitchy, the iso numbers disappear and you have to switch the iso to have them come back again.

Thanks guys, this is some great news!


EDIT: Just so that I get a better grasp of how ML works. Well at least this edition we got here. If I go to firmware update and try to uninstall it the way ML instructions go, I still get the Enable Boot disk :) etc. No way to disable it. Is this a type of a ML install that doesn't set boot disk enabled on the Camera? Also, will using a different SD card result in totally stock settings? Including the boot times. ML takes a little longer to boot. Does the time reduce if you're using non ML SD card?

Alright guys, first post here and this whole thread is looking awesome. Thanks to everyone spending time on porting ML for 1200D.

I've read half of the thread and have done a few attempts at installing ML but so far I'm having the same issue as the few guys above.

What I've done:

1. Low Format the Card (tried both 2gb and 32gb cards, Got only those)
2. Put ML files from the latest build (july 30)
3. Add 1200D.fir from a few pages back
4. Used EOSboot utility linked above on Windows. Tried the same on Mac with the mac utility.
5. I also tried doing the same steps except doing step number 4 before tep 2 and 3
6. Turned on the camera with the card in it.
7. Firmware update>it proceeds to update, then jumps out of the update screen, shows the regular screen for a few mins, then goes to the photo view screen and shows a few steps (same as the guys from above were getting). It ends with a :) . It doesn't freeze the camera. All I can do is hit the shutter button or the play/preview button and it'll continue working all fine.

Now I've done this with full battery on as well as with the newest firmware installed before starting these steps (1.0.1 firmware)


What am I missing? What am I doing wrong? Could someone explain it a little more thoroughly? Step by step? I think what we all are doing wrong is the EOS step. The video didn't help as he uses it to download and place the files for already working builds. Not our case.
