Share Your Videos / Vägens slut - Road's End (2 min short)

Hi ML-users!
Where is the best place to get first response on your work? Well I figured this place might be.

My latest narrative short is made using a 5Dmk2 with magic lantern. Shot in raw for keying greenscreen. Not the best key due to limited light, but whole movie is written, shot and vfx:ed in 15 days as part of a student assignment. First scene is filmed from small drone + gopro during daytime.
graded and cut in Premiere/After-effects. Soundmix in Audition.

English subs (probably misspelled) are available.

PASSWORD: showtime

All constructive feedback is encouraged. Maybe you think the best/worst part is something I haven't thought of.


Raw Video / Variable MLV resolution?
« on: October 29, 2015, 08:29:30 PM »
I might have asked similar question before, but I just wonder if it would be possible to record an MLV raw video of interchangeble resolution.
What I'm aiming for is something like 24fps of low resolution video, where every 4th or 8th frame is  a full sensor readout.
I don't want to bother with the math if its not even possible.
I have a setup in after effects that could potentially create 4K interpolated output of that footage, using the low-res as tracking for moving pixels in the interpolated high-res sequence. Inspired by this:

So, is it even possible to create this kind of data?

Share Your Videos / SolarEclipse plane of 2015 (VIDEO)
« on: April 18, 2015, 10:36:09 PM »
I finally got the time to edit and grade the few bits and pieces from this solar eclipse that I captured some weeks ago. A frame excerpt from the passing of the plane became a still image that got some attention in Swedish media. The still can be found on my flickr

Here comes the short video.

A tribute to the sun.

Didn't really know how to edit this with so little material. Instead I found this really great piano piece by Andrew Gerlicher that really gave the mood. Asked, and got his permission to alter and use it in the short.

 Hope you like it!

Technical details:
Tamron 150-600mm, but very much just 600 hehe + Tiffen VND 72mm attached with duck-tape on the 95mm front.
Magic lantern MLV 30fps 1856x1004 3X crop mode or whatever its called
MLVFS all default settings for fast playback
Edit & Grade in Resolve

Thanks to magic lantern I got this wonderful image today, aiming at the solar eclipse.

Solar Eclipse by poromaa, on Flickr

Was filming 12 second clips in raw (because the 5D2 can't handle more) when this suddenly appeared!
Pretty lucky I would say.


Just tried my new MLVFS-workflow on some shaky footage I had from South Africa.
The workflow follows:
1. MLVFS: make virtual folder from MLV-folder
2. Davinci Resolve lite: Import virtual dngs, Edit, grade & deliver footage in (prores 442HQ)
3. After effects: import final render. remove noise, (upscale content aware to keep some sharpness), add noise (film look), render to prores 442HQ.
4 Handbrake: export to mv4

*ok, I lied, but step 3 can be removed if using OFX plugin to resolve. Then it would be true.

Perhaps impossible, but found out that my battery drains very fast during filming if the OIS (or VC as on Tamron) is turned on. At the moment I turn the thing off between every take, but sometimes I forget. OIS is always on when liveview is on even though Im not recording video. If outside liveview the OIS turns off after about 5 seconds of non use.

It would have been a great feature to have the OIS physically turned on, but only active during recording.

Feature Requests / Digital ND-filter (lower ISO)
« on: September 13, 2012, 02:43:16 PM »
Is it possible to create even lower ISO for film (like a virtual ND-filter) than current ML? This would be useful for filming with 1/24 shutter and 1.4 apperature in daylight without overexposure.

User Introduction / Sweden - Poromaa
« on: July 31, 2012, 09:25:48 AM »
Hi there!
I have been an amateur photographer/filmer since 10 years back and a user of ML since last xmas.
I am a engineer in computer science, that has been working within finance for a while.
2 weeks ago I quit my job to focus on film for a year.

I just love what ML has done with my camera, and as soon as I get time I will start looking into the code and see if I can contribut (have not coded ARM or much C though...)
Anyway, Im full of ideas and very driven. If you live in Sweden don't hesitate to contact me if you need help/want to do some project together.

Upcoming project: Trip to Kebnekajse (highest mountain in sweden). Will try to tell that story with my 5D mkii

Feature Requests / 2:35 movie format
« on: July 30, 2012, 01:46:13 PM »
The sensor on 5D mk ii is 5616x3744. When recording the camera crops the image to a 5616x3159 (16:9), scaling it down to a 1920x1080. As I understand the format of the final file will always be 1920x1080... but...

Would it be possible record 5616x2390 (2.35) and scale down to 1920x1080?
This would enable the user to rezise x-axis to a 2538x1080 keeping more information in the image (since no post-cropping is needed), and also not waste any compression on things you plan to crop away in post.

Note, Im not asking for a different output than 1920x1080... just different reading from the cmos?

Feature Requests / [DONE]Timelapse Powersave (Ecomode?)
« on: July 30, 2012, 09:50:30 AM »
It would be nice to have a "powersave" function in the fps overide setting. I for example only use the "turn off LCD" when doing filming timelapse, but then when I want to shoot regular I usually want to turn off the powersave function again.

It would be nice if the power-save-function was a sub-setting for just timelapse and fps-override.

 When shooting timelapse with the intervalometer, eco-powermode would be useful that does not even show any picture at all unless (for example) the LCD-sensor is triggered during a take. In practise this would mean a black LCD during all shots unless you hold your hand close to the sensor/press a button?

Feature Requests / In-Camera movie trimming
« on: July 30, 2012, 07:43:30 AM »
I do nature filming and sometimes I have had the camera on for several minutes to capture something in 4 seconds (Snake peeking out from a hole). However, my memory card is filled pretty fast, and sometimes I have to remove a scene with good stuff simply because of need of storage for other interesting happenings.

What I would need is a simple way of cutting down (extract the interesting part) in movies shot in camera. That would then allow me to not have a computer/100 memory cards with me out in the field. I wouldn't need accuracy here, but cutting on a keyframe would be good enough.

Keep up the great work!
