you're welcome. tell me/us a little bit about the workflow with your nec monitor, primarily;yy about your real advantages. that's a interesting thing. and of course, how the cdng-files behave..
regards chmee

The cDNG's I get are drag and drop which is great... workflow is what you'd expect, import the folder from prelude (when needed, which auto-pulls up media encoder and allows transcode for offline, so you'll need some space and some time, again, IF NEEDED, I say if needed when working between web project @720p and  feature length project @ full color gamut... otherwise, just direct drag N' drop folder import into PP CC) all the way through to a final edit and color. [EDIT: btw - only first pass on color in PP, 2nd and final polish in Davinci]

Really the monitor ( not that big of a deal, it just allow me to do 10bit color with a wide AdobeRGB gamut and has some function for a basic LUT in the field... the cool thing is your software allows me to choose 12bit , that's what I really got excited about (16bit crashes on me, I'll pull logs if you need) so, I have two 7Ds that I can keep now (no buying a new camera) and get some kickin RAW out of them.

[EDIT: The thing is, right now, for the price, (especially since I already own two 7D's) you can't beat 12bit RAW @ 1080p with the 7D, it saves me on a monthly rental... you deserve a huge (and more of a) thanks!   Please don't stop! this is some of the best ML covert software I've seen so far]

I'll donate... I promise that! [EDIT: Although, I need an English version... there's no translate with paypal I guess]
OMG! Where the hell have I been! I just found this today! I just wanted to give a big Thank You!

I've been trying to find some kind of exit strategy for the 19lights GingerHDR workflow I've been using, which just shut down (drag and drop with ML Raw was a great solution for a bit, fast workflow with direct import into PP with very few drawbacks)... After that, First option was the ACR workflow with 8bit output and that just wasn't going to cut it (for bigger jobs)... but, now I know I can get solid 12bit cDNG on my timeline (with a pro NEC monitor) and I couldn't be happier.  Awesome deal. Great Work man! :D

Change aspect ratio away from 16:9.. you can do 1728x1152...

scratch audio will knock down your write rate too much to make it worth it, even low rate audio. even more fun when it causes pink frames

still on vaca till the 10th.

Ahhhh...   did not know I could do that. Ty. Will give that a shot myself.   
...Sync audio really isn't so bad but it never hurts to ask  ;D

Thanks again... enjoy the vacation!

Hi everyone!! Any way to have moré than 1728x972 without the crop factor?? Regards!

Really it's only a 12% scale... upscale to 1080 and looks just as good.
In Premiere Pro I just set my sequence 1080p, and then in the effects controls > Motion > Scale > 112
It's that easy.

So from my point of view I have 1080p RAW from my 7D now and, and the current nightly build I'm using is as stable as I could ask for. So, I'm extremely thankful to all that contributed and especially 1% for taking the 7D reigns and riding it!

On another note...
If there's ever a possibility to get scratch audio, I would be even more thankful ;-) If we could get audio and I mean the audio only has to be of a minimum standard... even as low as 8,000Hz with the lowest bit rate... I'm talking about making the scratch audio literally "scratch audio" so as not to take too much away from from the benchmark speed of my card. One of my (and many others I'm sure) Christmas wishes for Merry ol' Saint 1%  ;-)

oh and Happy Thanksgiving.

Question, How do you record higher than 1728 ? , It's stops there, anything hire says it's not capable in current video mode.

From your Liveview screen, hit your 5x zoom (NOT 10x), THEN go back into your resolution settings.... You'll see the dialogue for your max res will change.
Also, I've disabled 10x under  PREF > Liveview zoom tweaks (I have an older nightly build, don't know if the 10x was fixed)

well someone who has clips like mine that ACR wont pull up in After effects only way to get ACR is through photoshop.

so for the moment this was a great sub. since i didnt have the raw files only sequence.

ive seen plenty of people use lightroom to convert. WITHOUT NOISE REDUCTION, GRAIN ADDING and WITHOUT SHARPENING in light room.. .

and as for the quicktime export.  the person who created THIS VIDEO, was one of the people who first told me how to EXPORT from Quicktime (Chamillionaire - Ridin Dirty)

so its not the first time ive heard it was a good way to export.

i honestly PERSONALLY dont see any difference for YOUTUBE purpose but maybe for On screen or dvd.

-continued slightly off RAW Dev topic but, still relevant to the ML RAW file type we're all desperately trying to work with...
Also, I know GingerHDR RAW support may be old news for some.

I've been using GingerHDR (from 19Lights)for some time now, mainly because I like the simplicity of what I can do with it and my 7D video (any video really) Ironically, their latest update  supports ML RAW and allows me to ingest the ML RAW files directly and work on them like any other video clip previously. I actually paid the $150.00 for the plugin as a business purchase but, I probably would have puchased it anyway... I know $150 isn't something everyone will want to drop on a plugin just to make RAW a one step ingest but, personally I found it worth it!

I'm sure some of you have seen this.

Now with today's recent CC update they seem to support Cinema DNG... However,  it also seems the main support is for BMCC and RED, etc., and then there are some posts that are showing issues (with Canon of course) with color shifts a few other various anomalies.  So for now, I'll stick with Ginger HDR and when not it's available, and sometime it's not (only on two machines and not my laptop) of course use the mlv2raw/raw2dng process.

In any case, I highly recommend the plugin for those inclined to buy it or "find" it or whatever.

Hi everyone,

I wonder if there is still a hope to get continuous recording in 1920 X 1080 for the 7D (even if it's only 24p) or if we're locked with 1728 X 972 forever ?
Is it a buffer problem ? card write speed limit or dual digic issue ?

Can only get 1920x1080 in cropped mode at 5X zoom.  I get 1 min 30 sec of 1920x1080 at 24 fps on 7D with Lexar Pro 1000X.

Right now I'm running 1600x900 continuous and it's beautiful! ( CF komputerbay 32 gb 1000x)
I set my sequence to 1920x1080 and scale up the video by 20% and it still looks beautiful...
I figure that's how I'll work-around it until 1080 becomes continuous and stable... And some scratch audio will be nice. Great Job!

Test video approx. 30s - 1600x900 upscaled 20% to 1920x1080
Unfortunately, YouTube's process is horrible and destroyed a lot of the detail...
There are better methods and settings for youtube but, this is just a test shot.

Thanks guys! Keep up the great work!

I've been trying to cheat the bandwidth by recording at 720p60 mode but shooting at 1728 and stretching the pic 1.4x in post...

Has anyone been getting black bars such as these to the right when shooting at 2.5k?

Same here... using a 32gb 400x card (works great so far even at about 36mb/s on card ) No bar on the side but, I did notice a small slice of a black bar at the bottom when scaling from 720 to to 1080 to see some quality difference...  Just at 1x too and I upscaled at about 18%, got rid of it at 20%
(sorry no pics, but the black bar was slim and was only on the bottom)

Here's an image of that battery. I have two more I'll test after charging and see how that goes.

First off I want to Thank You and the rest of the ML team for all the hard work. I was a developer in my past life and I understand, first hand, how much effort goes in this. I appreciate getting a second life out of my 7D's with some new bionic abilities.

I read in the beginning of this thread something about batteries, I don't know if I've missed any posts on this however, for me, there seems to be an issue loading ML when using third party batteries. I don't know if it's the particular brand I'm using (Premium TECH batteries, will test others soon) or if it's just the "cannot communicate" screen you have to Okay that halts the loading.

I have two 7D's and I've tried both and both were a no-go with 3rd party batteries.
Once I used a canon battery it worked flawlessly.

Thanks again for all the hard work... A donation is forthcoming coming.
