The file MLV_REC.TMP is there only to reserve space, so I don't need it to make my .dng files neither to proxy them. So I can delete before decompressing the raw files. Am I right?
... and Intervalometer, for sure.
Who guess in which scenes I used Dual-Iso?


5D3, 5D2, 70-200mm f2.8, 16-35mm f2.8
Is it possible to .MLV nonstop rec in 1080p30 in a 5DIII with a SDXC 64gb write speed250 MB/s?

You can be short and sweet.
Because I was thinking in using this card to rawrec.

You can set the maximum shutter speed for ettr. There's no reason in my mind to lock the ISO or give "preference" to it.

ohh... sure... I completely forgot that. hahaha
Is there any ways of using ettr without giving all the preference to the shutter? I mean, because sometimes I want a timelapse at night with an interval time lower than 30 sec, but every time I set the ettr it makes my shutter speed go to 30 sec and my ISO to the minimum as possible. It would be great if we could lock the iso or give preference to the iso till it reach a determined value.
I have noticed that the ETTR can be linked with an external shutter. This can make the shutter time get over 30'' ? If yes, is there any means of linking the ETTR with the Bulb Timer from ML? Because I would like to have a bigger minimum shutter in the beginning to make its end more smooth (shooting a sunrise).
Another question, the ETTR module can work with Tv mode, what makes the camera choose the aperture based on the expo. Is there any ways of combining the ETTR with the Tv mode to get more Ev's during a night to day timelapse, without getting big flickering and neither confusing the ETTR?
what happened???
This program was abandoned?
everybody is using .mlv now?
Because I used to use Son of Batch for converting many .raw files into .dng and with the preview, that helped me choosing the best scenes to put on the video. But I stopped using raw for a while and now my program is not working. Is there any possibilities of some one help me or correct this bug?
Because the Son of Batch is opening ok, but when I double click the raw file or drag it to the second column or choose the output folder and then click GO, nothing happens.
Im having some problems over here...
I have the 1.1.3 version installed in my 5d3 and the nightly builds for it... well, when i click the firmware update button to install the version 1.2.3 from canon (with the new firmware inside the sd card), the camera goes to a loading screen and then return to the main menu and some messages like "DATA/FONTS.DAT retry, not found and you have to install al ml files" appears at the top of the screen. I already tried to reinstall ml, to do the bootflag again... but this message always appears. I searched in the computer for this folder in my sd card but there is no .dat file in there.  what i have to do?

You have to set the exposure... This screen must be from your last photo. If you think that the exposure of this photo is ok, and you want to keep it the same for all your time-lapse, than you should press the set button.
Take note that the landscape can change luminosity, but your camera will keep the same exposure in your photo by varying the bulb time.
yea.. for sure... only now i understood what is the dual iso.. but, so where is the dual iso submenu? ... i'm not finding it, and i have already turned the dual_iso mode on, and restarted the camera...

Edited: ok, I already found it.... it is on the topic expo of the ml menu... then dual iso...
I'm having some trouble here with the cr2hdr.exe on Mac ...I have recorded a video with the hdr function and in Raw mode, then I take the raw file and use RAWMagic to transform it in .dng folders. When i drag the dng folder to the cr2hdr.exe the program starts to erase the dng files... and it appears a message saying "Doesn't look like interlaced ISO" (but in the preview of the computer i can see that the files are with diferent ISOs)  ... and when I rename the .dng to .CR2 and than drag to the cr2hdr.exe it appears an .txt file saying the same thing... what I'm doing wrong?

Try "Son of Batch"

Thanks a lot!!! It was this program that I was searching for!!!

It will help me too much!

With this program you can choose your raw files, than you choose a folder to the output files and it will make, for each raw file, a folder with the DNG sequence and will make a video with the same name of the DNG folders!

So this is even better than RawMagic because it gives you the option of having the videos.

But now I have an other question... Is there any difference between the quality of DNG from RawMagic and the DNG from Son of Batch? Because if there's no difference, I can already uninstall RawMagic.... Well, the question is: can it have difference in the quality between two programs that converts raw files into dng sequences?.. because is there any compression in this process that could make the quality of the file get worse?

To make a better workflow for myself I created this windows app. Thought I should share it in case anyone else find it useful.

It's just i quick dev. No extensive testing done. No guarantee of anything. Use at your own risk! Only works on windows and is using raw2dng, dcraw and ffmpeg.

My workflow
As of version 0.3.0 I have tried to get this app to help me with my whole workflow which centers around Lightroom as RAW converter. Here is how I do it:
-Copy raw files to folder on local computer (SSD disk will improve conversion speed alot)
-Open RAWanizer, select folder, choose video settings and press start. This will extract dng from raw file, create proxy tiff files and a proxy video file.
-For a fast preview of the sequence, I choose tiff size half and mp4 option. This will give me a preview that I can use to decide which files to do real conversions for.
-Once I know which files I want to do deal with I have two options:

---Go to Lightroom or other raw converter and do conversion there. Export files as tiff and put them in 'tiff' sub folder to the dng folder (in Lightroom there is a nice option to do this easy)
---Go back to RAWanizer and choose 'video' instead of 'proxy video', select a higher quality video codec and hit start. This will give me a video file to work in my NLE.
---If I want to go back and change some settings in Lightroom I can do that and reexport to the same folder as before. Then open RAW anizer and just hit start again and it will replace the previously created video file. This will automatically have the clip in your NLE  get updated.


---Instead of lightroom, in RAWanizer I hit custom button which brings up a dialog for making settings for dcraw conversion. Tweak the settings and hit save. This is now the settings use for conversions. If I'm satisfied with the quality I choose to use a high quality codec and hit start. Now I have a file ready for my NLE

Important The 'video' settings to the left of start button has these meanings:
-Proxy video: Extracts the dng from raw file. Then creates tiff files from dng and finally creates a video file from the tiffs.
-Video: Looks for tiff files in 'tiff' sub folder in the dng subfolder and creates video file from them. Use this option if you have developed the dng in other converter.
-No video: Only extracts the dng from raw file. No tiffs created and no video file created.

Open the folder with raw files. Choose frame rate (for example 23.976) and size for proxy video. Click start and wait.

RAWanizer will create a sub folder for each raw file and put the dng files there. When proxy is created a sub folder in the dng folder will be created with tiffs. The final proxy video is created from the tiffs and put in the same folder as the original raw file. If there is a wav file with the same name as the raw file it will be included in the proxy video.

The proxy file generated can be either mp4 (5mbit) or DNxHD (185mbit). The mp4 file is created in the resolution of the tiff files.  Since DNxHD only supports two resolutions, the image is upscaled to 1920x1080 with black bars if not a perfect fit.

If people find it useful I might put some more time on it. What improvements would you like?

Download full install 0.6.0
Patch 0.6.1 Save .exe in previous installation folder.
If you have installed a previous version, when using full install, you have to use windows 'add and remove progam' to uninstall the previous version first. You may also be prompted to download and install .net 4.5 when you start the program for the first time.

version 0.6.1
-dng subfolder is named -dng instead of .dng so Resolve can recognize the files.

version 0.6.0
-fixed processing of multiple spanned files
-added option to save all dng files in same folder
-included the latest raw2dng

version 0.5.5
-added setting to delete dng files after video creation. For safety reasons this only works if original is a RAW file, not a Dng folder.
-added button to restore default presets
-some file handling bugfixes

version 0.5.4
-the settings are applied when processing starts and not when added to queue, this has confused some people so I hope this will help some, but now you can't get different settings for different files in the queue.

version 0.5.3
-bug fixes

version 0.5.2
-bug fixes
-use framrate from raw file when creating video

version 0.5.1
-automatic merging of split files (>4Gb) (there is a setting under file tab where you can choose to write to the original RAW file. This is faster, cleaner and the result is just one single RAW file. But if something fails along the way you probably end up with at corrupt RAW file, so use with caution, preferably a backup. If not checked it will create a new RAW file with prefix 'M-' and the originals will still be there, safer if you have no backup)
-some more options for dcraw conversions
-now possible to save more than one custom preset for dcraw, Cineform and video output.

version 0.5.0
-raw file meta data shown in file list.
-option to show first, middle and last thumbnail from the raw file before processing.
-clean up of UI.
-latest version of raw2dng included.

version 0.4.3
-New install with all needed files and some fixes. Hopefully the ffmpeg problem will be gone now.

version 0.4.2
-Fixed problem with path for Cineform tools. This folder could appear either under 'Cineform' or 'Gopro'. You can now also set custom path under 'folder settings' if you have it installed in a different folder.

version 0.4.1
-For the Cineform batch processing I'm now throwing up console window so the progress can be examined and aborted by closing the console window. This is temporary as I hope to find another way to deal with it.

version 0.4.0
-Batch processing for Gopro Cineform. You have to download and install Gopro Cineform studio + a small utility. Follow the instructions here:
-For the Cineform batch processing, the top progressbar is not working (detailed progress for each clip). You have to wait and see...

version 0.3.3
-Possible to open a single dng folder
-Fixed bug when starting program and last folder used had been removed
-Increased responsiveness when previewing dcraw settings

version 0.3.2
-tried to get rid of some users program crash

version 0.3.1
-Added possibility to set custom folders to override default structure
-Initial attempt for 'watch folder'. When this is activated, new raw files copied to that folder will automatically start processing.

version 0.3.0
-Add date time prefix to raw file name
-UI much more responsive and cancel works almost all the time
-More options for managing files and processing
-Now possible to use custom dcraw converter settings
-UI to help create custom dcraw settings
-Use custom ffmpeg settings for video file
-Create video file from tiff sub folder that can be populated by your favorite raw converter (lightroom, ps)

version 0.2.1
-added DNxHD as an option for the proxy file

version 0.2.0
-using multiple instances of dcraw to increase speed of dng to tiff conversion. You can change no of instances to find optimal for your computer.

Known Issues:
- Does not work with file names containing spaces or other special characters

Is there any version for Mac, of this program? ... If don't, please, create one, because this program seems to be perfect to improve the workflow.

Is a program like these that I want! ...But is there  any version for Mac  (OS X)?

Anyways, thank you!

I think the fastest way right now is to use davinci resolve 10 lite (free)

But if I select lots of folders with dng sequences, will davinci resolve lite export each folder into a different mp4 file, with the name of the folder?... because the problem is not my GPU, the problem is that for each film I use to record more than 100 videos, and so converting each dng folder, one at a time, would take too long to finish.

Well... I just want to know if there are any ways of converting (in the computer) all the raw files that I shot into a .mov, as fast and as simple as the software of the camera do when recording a video (not on raw)... Well.. I`m asking that because when you are about to edit a film you have lots of takes that you won`t use and it takes a long time to import all the dng files in to LR and than compacting to jpg. and sending it to Premiere to make the .mov or .mp4 file. I prefer to edit the video, make the audio sync and and do all these stuff before doing the color grading and etc... So I'm thinking that if I could compact all the raw files into mov files, like the camera does instantly after record a video, I would be able to make all the edition with the file compacted and than select the scenes that I want to work on... And so a would pic the raw files of these scenes and work on that and than just relink the media.

Well another solution can be a program that convert dng sequences into .mov or .mp4 ... but is it would be important that the program convert each folder into a diferent video file. This option would be even better because in this case I don`t have to keep the raw files (that are really large).

Well I hope that i've been clear

Thanks, Already
