Raw Video / 10-bit / 12-bit RAW on 5D Mark III, possible yes or no?
« on: October 18, 2018, 04:45:49 PM »
Simple question: I'm using the latest nightly build for 5D3 and I don't need the 14-bit RAW. I'd rather go with 10/12-bit and net myself a bit more recording time. However, I can nowhere find the option to change the bitrate. See pic, I saw a pic of someone that's actually able to change it. Is it actually possible or not?

General Chat / Panasonic GH5 or Canon 5D Mark III?
« on: October 08, 2018, 11:38:48 PM »
Hi all, quick question:

I have the option to choose between these two cameras. Recently my own 5DIII broke so I don't have a camera atm. I love the RAW video quality that ML provides for 5DIII, but I also love GH5's quality and its workflow. Personal downsides to ML RAW is the fact I can't properly play back footage. It's super annoying and my clients hate to see some pixelated black and white preview, or some preview in color that stutters like ****. I only do video, mainly music videos.

I already own two Canon L lenses, but that's easily solvable with a speedbooster.

Please help me choose :)

Raw Video / 5D Mk III - completely glitched out clips
« on: February 14, 2018, 12:20:13 PM »
Hi everyone,

I encountered a devastating problem. A lot of my footage became completely glitched out.

It seems like this problem is similar to one of my older problems: https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=19108.0

First, here are my settings:

I'm recording 14-bit RAW video at 1920 x 490, 60 fps through fps override (I'm going to stretch it to 1920 x 817 in post to get proper 2.35:1 resolution). There are no other ML features being used, except the mlv_lite and mlv_play. I'm using the latest build (February 4th 2018 on 1.1.3).

I'm using a Canon 5D Mark III, with 50mm 1.2 and 24-105mm 4.0 lenses, using SanDisk Extreme PRO as storage (64GB, 160 MB/s). No external monitors connected.


This is in my ML folder > Settings > MLV_LITE.CFG

# Config file for module mlv_lite (MLV_LITE.MO)

raw.video.enabled = 1
raw.aspect.ratio = 6
raw.write.speed = 7938



Yesterday I recorded some (very important) footage. When on the set, I used the magnify button a lot to make focusing easier. When zoomed in I could see some glitches, but when zoomed out everything was fine, so I just started recording. Everything was also fine while recording.

I just converted all my footage to .dng sequences using MLVFS. A lot of footage became completely glitched out. See pic related. About 30% of all the clips I shot turned into pic related.


What caused this, and what can I do about this? Can I still save my 'corrupted' files/footage?

Here are some of the original MLV files that got ruined.

Raw Video / Questions regarding RAW video on 5D Mark III
« on: September 17, 2017, 02:21:34 AM »
Hi, I've got a couple of questions. I can't seem to find simple answers to this, I'm sorry if it bothers some of you. I tried my hardest Googling this, but couldn't find simple answers. I'm also a big noob when it comes to tech.

Small introduction: I've been shooting in RAW with a 5D Mark II for a few years now. Always recorded 1856x1044, and upscaled to 1920x1080. When I wanted to do something with slomo, I always had to use Twixtor for it. But I'm hesitating to buy a Mark III for cheap, and I'm having questions regarding slow motion.

I'm reading everywhere that the Mark III can RAW record at 50fps and 60fps. Can it also RAW record at 48fps? And if yes, what max. resolutions with (and without) continuous recording?

I'm asking because 24fps in the end is my favorite frame rate. And with that in mind, 48fps is way easier to manage. I'd really love to shoot high fps footage, hence my hesitation to buy the Mark III. But I really want to be sure before buying it. I hope anyone can clarify.

Thanks in advance.

Raw Video / Realtime video playback?
« on: May 03, 2017, 11:02:53 PM »
Hi,

I've started using the mlv_play function recently, but I can't get it to play back my footage in realtime. In fact, it plays at about 2 fps, something that's rather useless to me. Is there a way to make it play back realtime? Can't I lower it the playback quality so it's able to play back realtime? These are my settings, in case it matters:

I'm recording 14-bit RAW video at 1856 x 1044, 23,976 fps. There are no other ML features being used, except the mlv_lite and mlv_play.

I'm using a Canon 5D Mark II, with 50mm 1.2 and 24-105mm 4.0 lenses, using SanDisk Extreme PRO as storage (64GB, 160 MB/s). No external monitors connected


This is in my ML folder > Settings > raw_rec.cfg.

# Config file for module mlv_lite (MLV_LITE.MO)

raw.video.enabled = 1
raw.write.speed = 7335


Yes, I tried Googling, but I haven't managed to find anything. Thanks in advance. I appreciate your help a lot.

Hi everyone,

I encountered yet another problem, which is even more devastating than my previous one. I have always used raw_rec on my Mark II and I've never really had any problems. I recently switched to the new RAW (mlv_lite).

First, here are my settings:

I'm recording 14-bit RAW video at 1856 x 1044, 23,976 fps. There are no other ML features being used, except the mlv_lite and mlv_play.

I'm using a Canon 5D Mark II, with 50mm 1.2 and 24-105mm 4.0 lenses, using SanDisk Extreme PRO as storage (64GB, 160 MB/s). No external monitors connected


This is in my ML folder > Settings > raw_rec.cfg.

# Config file for module mlv_lite (MLV_LITE.MO)

raw.video.enabled = 1
raw.write.speed = 7335



Yesterday I recorded some (very important) footage. When on the set, I already wasn't able to view back some of the footage with mlv_play. The weird thing is that it was only some of the footage. It just gave me a black screen with an error along the lines: "Could not load blocks" or something.

I just converted all my footage to .dng sequences using MLVFS. All of the footage I couldn't view on the set suddenly turned into 1920x1078 footage, instead of the 1856x1044 I originally shot at. And even worse, all those clips became completely glitched out. See pic related. All the frames of the clips of which the resolution changed (which I couldn't view on set) became like this. About 20% of all the clips I shot turned into pic related.


What caused this, and what can I do about this? Can I still save my 'corrupted' files/footage?

Raw Video / 5D Mk II - fractured pink/purple frames in RAW video (solved)
« on: February 27, 2017, 06:35:48 PM »
Hey everyone,

I have always used raw_rec on my Mark II and I've never really had any big problems. Maybe one 'broken' frame per every 256 GB or so. But since a few days ago I'm noticing around 6-7 broken frames for every 1 minute of footage. I have changed literally nothing about my setup since last time when I didn't have this problem.

I'm recording at 1856 x 1044. There are no other ML features being used, except the raw_rec.

I'm using a Canon 5D Mark II, with 50mm 1.2 and 24-105mm 4.0 lenses, using SanDisk Extreme PRO as storage (64GB, 160 MB/s).


Any help would be greatly appreciated. I tried installing the most recent version of ML, but no difference. Could it be the cards aging? I've had these cards for almost a year now, using it about once a month for RAW recordings.

Pic related, it's the problem I'm talking about:

General Help Q&A / Is mlv_lite the exact same thing as the old raw_rec?
« on: February 25, 2017, 01:53:13 AM »
Hi,

I've always been using Magic Lantern on my Canon 5D Mark II. Recently I figured my Nightly build was heavily outdated (2014) so I just downloaded and installed the latest one. I've alway used raw_rec, but that option is nowhere to be found anymore. Only things I can find are mlv_rec and mlv_lite.

Is mlv_lite the exact same thing as the old raw_rec? And what are the differences in quality when it comes to mlv_lite vs. mlv_rec?

EDIT: I'm also getting MLV files, instead of RAW files, which tells me that there's something significantly different. Can anyone clarify?

Thanks.

General Chat / Is this filmed with Canon + Magiclantern?
« on: January 05, 2017, 03:37:24 AM »
Title.



I keep on thinking this is Canon + Magiclantern, but something tells me this is GH4. Does anyone have the knowledge to tell me what this is filmed with? Lenses are not necessary, just system.

Thanks in advance :)

Raw Video / Canon 5D Mark II RAW video - stops after 5 sec
« on: March 31, 2016, 12:42:57 PM »
Alright, so I'm fairly new when it comes to ML but I'm not retarded.

With my old card (SanDisk 8GB 30MB/s) I was able to record about 5 seconds of the highest possible RAW resolution in 24 fps. Yesterday I bought myself a Lexar 32 GB 1066x 150MB/s CF card and I decided to try again. Next thing you know, it still only records for ~5 seconds max. The overlay when recording says it's writing 25MB/s though, so I'm guessing either there's something wrong with my Mark II or with the CF card. Or is it something that has to do with the ML settings? The only thing I did was turn on raw_rec, and later turn on RAW video with the desired resolution.

I already tried recording a few times to 'warm up' the card, I already tried the 'Card Warm Up' function, and I already tried mlv_rec, and none of those worked. Still 5 seconds max. recording.

I also performed a benchmark to give you guys some additional info:




I really need this fixed, as I'm having a very important shoot this weekend. Hope to hear from you soon.
