Share Your Videos / My last Showreel 100% MLRaw - Canon 5D mark3
« on: December 11, 2019, 12:43:06 PM »
This is a kinf of best-of, showreel...done with last projects...
2 minutes only.

Hope you will like it !
Sorry if you dont like it... You will have waste only 2 minutes of your life...

Done with 100% Magic Lantern RAW 1080p on Canon 5D Mark3, my best "storytool"...
The thumbail....It's my ugly face.. I am not afraid of anything !

Here is a short movie in my series =>  Sequences without consequence...
Title :  I come home empty...

Camera : Canon 5D MarkIII

3 Canon lenses

  • Canon 35mm f:2 USM
    Canon 50mm f:1.4
    Canon 85mm f:1.8

    4 Compact Flash Komputer Bay 128Go 1066x

Light : 3 Led Panels :

 Two Yongnuo YN-600L II 5500k just in front véhicule throught a diffusion châssis de diffusion at 50cm from the light sources at 4 mètres from the car.
 One YONGNUO YN600 RGB on the side of the car to create a color light border on the back side of actors

Workflow / Steps / softwares :

  • Batch_MLV => MLV Development in .DNG
    Resolve15 => Audio Synchro sound engineer with  (bad) camera Mic
    Resolve15 => DNxHD 10 bits Proxies
    Vegas Pro17 => Editing (with Proxies)
    Vegas Pro17 => AAF Protools export to create the final audio Mix
    Vegas Pro17 => Export final editing in XML to Resolve15
    Protools => final mix export wave 48Hz -24bits stereo to Resolve
    Resolve15 => Final color grading (DNG)+ add the final mix Wave file
    Resolve15 => Export the master in DNxHD 444+ ProRes 444 (for archive) and H264 ( for Vimeo / youtube)
    Resolve15 => Export 2K Master in DCI 24p ratio 2:39
    DCP o Matic => DCP DCI 24p stereo

Conclusion :

  • 95% of the "image Look" is made in set with light, 5% only in Resolve
    No LUT used, just custom classic tools from Resolve15 (nodes / curves / color mask / noise reduction / tracking mask/ color weels...
    To be precise, one input LUT to convert BM DNG colorspace in Rec-709.

Share Your Videos / All my last year magic Lantern RAW - 2016
« on: January 19, 2017, 09:49:07 AM »
One year of shorts films shot in 20016 in 2'30 !
Only in RAW ! Only with Magic Lantern !

No camera for the moment can offer me what offers my good old Canon 5D Mark3 with Magic Lantern.
My buddy Canon in MLVRAW is my pen, easy to move. No need to have a large team to managed it !
I can shot quickly, easily, and I can be very close to the actors.

Why not Panasonic GH5 or Sony A7S II ? Just because I love the 14bits color depth and the "organic noise", more than 4k, or slow motion...
I can give my own signature to the image, instead of using Pansonic or Sony one !

Why not Red o Alexa ? Just because there are to expensive, to heavy, to big, 5K or 6k are too heavy to manage in post, my EF lenses are croped...
My old Canon 5D III is not less "professionnel", it just fit in my hands, it's enought for me.

My short films are shown in cinemas in DCP 2K upscaled from FullHD, and they have won several "best cinematography" awards in international festivals, thanks to the flexibility of the MLVRAW.

Magic Lantern is a simply fantastic tool that has changed the face of the world of video creation.

Thanks so much guys, I owe you so much.


My short movie " Dont come back from Paradise " has been selected in a new International Short Film Festival in Canada and win an "Award of Excellence" after an Award for cinematography in a Festival in London.

I would like to sincerely thank the entire team of ML !!! Without you it would never have been possible like that !

Shooting FullHD in RAW with a "simple" Canon 5D Mark3 open some fantastic possibilties => the camera is light then easy to move, the firmware is very stable and very powerful, the image quality is equivalent to a Pro camera, and the 1080p is sufficent for 2k DCPs !

Thank you !

Raw Video / Conversion file empty with MLV Mystic
« on: September 04, 2016, 09:02:24 PM »
Something new and strange append wtih MLVMystic 0.5....

When I convert MLV file in DNG on one of my internal disk drive (SSD), it create empty file.

I noticed that if I set the destination  in a sub directory, It does not work. It create  all the files with source name of orginal MLV file... but totaly empty !

But if i set the destination directly on the disk (without sub directory = it works !!

Why ?
How could i correct that bug ?

It was working properly before, and nothing has change on my computer...
