I have had this bug for a long time on all of the newer ML builds. I stick with 2/15/14 which doesn't have this issue. It is somehow related to HDMI output/monitoring. If you don't use a monitor, you'll be fine.

Raw Video Postprocessing / Split MLV Files have Corrupted?
« on: January 12, 2015, 06:42:39 PM »
So I have about a 5-6 min take, which covered several split MLV files. I rejoined them to a 20.39gb MLV file using the cat commands in terminal. When I try to convert this to DNG- only MlRawViewer will read the file- and then only partially- the first 1526 frames.

Based on where it fails, it looks like something got corrupted on the handoff from the first split file to the second. I tried rejoining the files just in case- still nothing. Is there anything I can do to recover the rest of the video? Is there anything I can do with M00, M01, M02 files?

I also get the cannot "connect to server error as well", quite often. The problem seems to be when the operation chokes on certain MLV files. There is no indication of why it chokes on these files, and the only way I can tell is by adding groups of MLV files to a folder to find the one that eventually crashes FUSE.

A crash log is below, let me know if you need any more

Would it be possible to integrate this workflow with split files- like M00, M01, M02, etc?

For his specific shoot, it was obviously not the right camera going into it.

I use raw ML for for 90% of my shoots- which are all paid and professional- no cat or tree videos. The other 10% are the ones that I know I don't have the time and money going into it, so I don't use the camera.

Still an HDMI tearing issue, as of May 12th build. When using an HDMI monitor, image tearing will appear. 5DII.

If anyone's interested, here's the commercial I shot with ML Nightly 3/30

Yes! Son of Batch was my preferred raw converter, great to see it out for MLV!

I founded a very stable build from the nightly that I trust for paid work with out question !  Feb16th link below:
Changeset: 536fbadfcc312939ba6af7d812c8cf1025ca1050
Its rock solid with HDMI and still has the 1872 option(continuous too) , as I sad I trust this for work, I never try new build for work as there is also issues  & the chance of failure
is too great. I torture test the raw builds for at lest a day, if it can handle being recorded 5 time in a row (full 64GB card) it a keeper. ;)

Ok great I'll have to try this out! I did test the Mar 30th nightly for the shoot, but I didn't with the HDMI monitor we used, and I guess that threw a glitch in that causes the processor to overload on lots of motion and cause the tearing. I left black level on considering that I've had black level problems in the past, but it made all my footage pink (but it's a relatively easy fix, as I said)

So yeah,
I just lost a day worth of footage because of this pink frame bs.
Whoever decided an unknown new feature called "fix black level" should be turned on as default... Thanks. I will be checking the menus every time from now on.

I just shot a commercial on the Mar 30 nightly build. Stupid idea, and never again. I keep trying and trying MLV builds, and I keep having problems. OCT26th A.D. build for 5D is rock solid, but the HDMI crash bug on that one drives my camera op nuts.

All my footage came out pink as well. Use exiftool to fix the dngs with this command: Exiftool –BlackLevel=1791. No need to re-shoot.

Second, every shot that had any kind of motion has atrocious tearing of the image. This occurs when the HDMI monitor is plugged in. Fortunately, due to the aesthetic of the commercial, I can use Twitch to cover up the tearing, so our huge dolly rig wasn't completely to waste. One or two shots cannot be used this way and are ruined.

IS there a plan to allow outputting to a certain folder on the hard disk, instead of simply placing the new DNG folder in the same place as the original MLV file? Basically so we could go straight from the CF card and output to our hard disk, without having to transfer the whole CF card to disk then converting... Thanks for making it easier to work with MLV..


This works great on Mac, I was wondering if there could be an option to select what folder the DNGs are exported to? It currently just dumps it in the same folder as the source, so it can't really be used when converting directly off the memory cards.

Feature Requests / Re: remaining card space update frequency
« on: February 18, 2014, 10:39:58 PM »
Might there be a way to run a small process to continuously track the used space? Maybe through the file manager? I don't think we need accuracy down to the second/megabite, just a rough approximation of how much we can shoot until a card swap is needed.

Feature Requests / remaining card space update frequency
« on: February 17, 2014, 08:50:17 PM »
Is there any way at some point to more frequently update the space remaining after each raw take? Or maybe even calculate the actual time remaining roughly based on the average data rate for the selected resolution.

I know if you cycle the camera sometimes it'll update but right now I've been working blind and dumping the card anytime I suspect that a take may be interrupted due to running out or having a supervisor track the space for each take.

Another vote for mac here

But all my DNGs have pink noise now. Any ideas?

Same exact thing here each time I've tried this method.

Raw Video / Re: 5d mark III external monitor raw, problems?
« on: September 05, 2013, 04:38:08 PM »
I don't know about 5DIII, but on my 5DII raw recording fails almost every time a monitor is plugged in. It actually does record, but crashes and requires a reboot when dumping the buffer.

What I am seeing is that the flickering comes from the contrast -100 slider. If I load Flatz and put the contrast back to 0, I do not get flickering.

Could someone supply me with a set of DNGs that experience the flickering for troubleshooting purposes?

My dropbox folder to add


I don't have dropbox but you can download one dng set that I get flicker with here

It isn't as evident until I start to grade. But it is there.

Darn, it looks like a great profile, but I get flicker with this profile.

I confirm flicker here as well.

Great work btw, it still is a valuable idea that hopefully can get resolved.

Pro Res 4444 should be the only format you should put into you editor.

Isn't the raw data 442? If so, wouldn't Pro Res 444 be a waste of space?

Raw Video Postprocessing / cineform raw vs prores
« on: June 10, 2013, 04:33:51 AM »
Just wanted to clarify a few things, as I'm not an expert on raw workflow...

Is Cineform Raw truly lossless raw? I like the idea of that in theory at the compression ratios that I'm getting, but I'm not sure if it offers me any more quality than what I would get with the (free) Apple Prores which compresses to a similar size. Anyone have any opinions? I do not want to be working with CinemaDNG/Resolve/proxy editing workflows, I'd just like to commit to a quality intermediate codec and not have any regrets later in coloring.

Raw Video / Re: raw settings don't save

I don't see settings for the raw module in the view config file.

Would it be possible at some point to save the raw settings?

Raw Video / raw settings don't save
« on: June 07, 2013, 03:54:00 PM »
Just wanted to see if anyone else had this issue. I can't seem to generate any kind of consistency on this, but I am very sure that at one time my raw settings saved through camera power cycles.

Using a.d.'s builds on 5d2. Each time the camera powers off, I have to manually enable raw recording, reset my desired resolution, turn on the sound beep, etc. I have auto save config turned on, and even tried manually saving.

Any ideas?

This is great work, but doesn't seem to save any settings in the raw video menu. They have to be changed back every time I toggle the camera on-off.
