Last month on the short film I shot with .mlv on ML, I worked off of the May 6th build for the 1.2.3, and using a Zacuto EVF chained to another 7" monitor, I had no issues with dropped frames, however I would occasionally get an error message when I ended the recording about some issue during the recording (my apologies for not having the specific message, it was a while back), and while the file was still there intact, I would have an occasional frame with some horizontal lines of "static" or corruption across the frame, for only a single frame. This wasnt a big issue as most of my shoot was done with minimal movement and cutting out on frame here or there wasn't noticeable. However I'd be worried about this on something larger scale project.

I haven't been around much to see about the issues found with hooking up an external HDMI monitor or multiple ones, but based on what I'm reading here, if we are planning to use multiple HDMI monitors then for the time being the safest bet would be to use the .raw module and record dual system sound with a separate recorder for audio and sync it in post, and keep .mlv temporarily for experimentation/none external monitor shoots?

I'd love to try and help out more with this, unfortunately I'm heavy in preproduction on a film that shoots next week so my time is relatively limited, but I'll touch base back here and see if I can provide any helpful info. Just wanted to clarify with those who have been involved in testing this issue, thanks!

Raw Video / Re: Frame skipping RAW 5d3 1.1.3

I like this thread.

How did you do the stabilization when walking?

I shot it on a steadycam (CMR Blackbird), and then further stabilized it using the motion tracker in AE, since I'm still not that up to par on my steadycam-ing and don't have an arm/vest haha and there was still a bit of wobble.

Haha ManU as well, but we can all root for the world cup.

Great piece and great Father's Day gift.  Love the closing shot and how the camera is bobbing with the wake (on a dock I assume).  Hope dad was happy!

Haha honestly I'm a ManU guy as well, my brother and mom are Liverpool though!

Thanks! Needless to say, my dad got quite emotional over the whole thing and had to go spend some time alone for a bit after watching it. He later told me it's the greatest gift he's ever received since my brother and I were born, so I'm definitely happy with the results. His brothers and the rest of my family all also loved it.

Yes, the final shot was done from the dock previously seen in the video, I loved the natural look it gave to the whole thing. Unfortunately, my card was full after the shot of my brother looking out at the water, and I had to shoot that final shot of the flower floating for the credits as a standard H264 to the lower speed SD card in my camera. Still worked well once I did some timewarping on it though.

I wanted to share this with you all, it's the first short I've worked on in my free time shooting with ML RAW Video on my 5D, using only natural lighting. I created this in memory of my grandfather, who passed away many years ago, and dedicated it to my father as a Father's Day gift. The video is of my brother visiting the place where we scattered my grandfather's ashes and leaving a rose in remembrance.

The video hasn't been graded or altered outside of minor adjustments in ACR to balance the exposures, shadows/highlights and color across shots. Let me know what you guys think!

which build did you use..?   the raw has a lot more dynamic range..

I was running the May 6th 1.2.3 build.

In terms of a loss, I was meant from a regular 1080P height resolution or at the compromise of a standard aspect ratio.

Fantastic! It's great seeing some interesting timelapse/HDR stuff like this shot here in Vancouver! I too am working on the 5D mk iii with magic lantern, although I'm more focused on the narrative filmmaking side of things. Just recently shot my first short with RAW that I'm currently editing on.

I too would be interested in knowing more about this. I can't find anywhere on the forums where this is actually explained in terms of what they mean/are, and how changing them affects performance and what is best if anyone has found out yet.

With 1.1.5, my DNG files look OK that I exported out of MLVMystic v0.5 look fine and have no video artifacts, as does the video when I open it in MLRawViewer 1.1.5, however when I export the clips out as MOV, anything dark in color artifacts horrible with colorful noise. The clips are still usable as proxies since they're just reference, but it makes it really tough to edit with...anyone else getting this issue? I tried searching but got no mention of this problem anywhere else.

EDIT: I have now found that it only does this using the sRGB and REC709 settings. The HDR setting seems to work just fine, the LOG setting has highlights that come out magenta where overblown.

Duplicate Questions / 5D MK3 & External HDMI monitor Overlays
« on: May 19, 2014, 08:16:41 AM »
Hi all,

So I'm looking to shoot my first short tomorrow on my 5D3 with the Raw MLV video, and am just prepping my setup, however I'm noticing something that's slightly annoying. It may be fixable, it may just be that it doesn't work and I'll have to deal with it for now.

So I tried plugging in my Zacuto EVF through the mini HDMI on my 5D3, and when I have HDMI Mirroring turned off on the canon menu, I get the regular image with ML Overlays through the Zacuto just fine, with no picture on the Canon screen. This is normal, I expected this. However, when I turn on mirroring, I lose all ML Overlays from both screens, and in the ML menu, the Overlay menu is entirely grayed out, and at the bottom in orange text it says "Press INFO (outside of ML menu) to turn off Canon displays" even though I have none on, and pressing INFO just brings the Canon overlays up.

I'd love to be able to have the ML overlays stay up and mirror alongside the image so that both my operator and AC can take advantage of the overlays, but as it currently stands, at least from the options I've tried, I only can get one of those two options:
1) LiveView with ML Overlays on just one screen, other screen is black. (HDMI mirroring off)
2) LiveView with NO overlays on both screens. (HDMI mirroring on)

Is there a way for me to get it so that I can have LiveView active on both screens, as well as the ML overlays on both or even just one of the two? Either would be a great improvement. However if not then I'll make do.


Share Your Videos / First attempt at RAW vs H.264 comparison on 5D3
« on: May 13, 2014, 11:02:29 AM »
So I figured while shooting test footage on my 5D3 with my new Lexar 64GB 1066x CF Card, I would also record  H.264 versions to compare with. This isn't the most fair of comparisons, as I did do some tweaking to some of the RAW shots in Adobe Camera Raw (both for the better and the worse, again I was testing things out not trying to be a perfectionist here!), but for the most part you get the idea. Let me know what you think!

So having just recently jumped onboard the Magic Lantern bandwagon, and absolutely loving it so far, I've been shooting some test footage to experiment what my camera is capable of and finding a good post processing workflow. I'm thinking that the potential offered by the 3X Digital Zoom, turning my 70-200 virtually into a 210-600 is truly awesome, and the ability to obtain higher resolutions at the cost of vertical resolution is something interesting to play with as well.

Anyways, here's a video sample I shot off of my balcony earlier today at 2560x854 using the 3X digital zoom on my 70-200mm f4L @70mm. I'm using a Lexar 64GB 1066x card, and had memory hack and card spanning on. The image hasn't been tweaked at all, just brought straight through ACR into After Effects and rendered out with media encoder and uploaded.
