Hey - that makes sense! I've got a 1.33x lens, so I appreciate the additional advice. My experiments last night seem to have worked with some ad libbed settings, but I'll try again given your thoughts. Thanks for such a zippy answer!

One more weird thing - and I don't know if this is just me - I installed the latest build, and it doesn't appear that 3x crop is sticky. i.e. I have to re-activate it every time I turn the camera back on. Anyone else?

Hey everybody!

I've been messing with anamorphics on a number of my cameras, and it seems that the EOS M might b e perfect for this kind of shooting. I've tried to enter the pixel dimensions that Tito Farrandans shares in this video:

The problem is that I can't dial up the RAW pixel dimensions that he mentions in his video. I get a list of various choices, but the numbers he uses aren't on that list.

Also, I shoot c-mount lenses with my EOS M using 3x movie crop. Will I be able to use a cmount lens with movie crop mode and with anamorphic settings? Or do the anamorphic settings take the place of what 3x movie crop is doing.

Hope that my description here isn't too confusing. Any ideas? 

Here's a cool video that is cleary post-processed to create this amazing rubber dancing man effect:

I just experimenting with FPS Override, and it sees to me so far that to get a degree of rubberiness, the ps has to be so low that the action has to be happenning very slowly. I hope that I'm wrong, as I'd love to see this effect work in-camera with ML. Am I just nuts?

Any other examples of ML slit scan I should look at? I've found scant few examples so far. WOuld love to reproduce the 2001 Time Tunnel, or the intro to 70s Doctor Who.

Thanks for helping me with my crazy video art!

@ Dfort

Thanks for the nice welcome, and the reply! of course I should have used Google to do the search for me. Duh. ;)

Id been using the touchscren to bring up ML, but it idn't occur to me to try it for getting submenus. It totally works, and I feel a little foolish for not working it out. Even using these features at their default values, I've been blown away. Now tha I can actually adjust stuff, I can already see that I'm going to be very vey busy. ;)

What kinda stinks is that ML is realy spoiling me for other cameras. I have an URSA, and yearn for the inds of thing that are in ML. There's so much processor power to spare in that camera, I've got to think that ML could really make that camera into  a powerhouse. As I've been using ML, I've wondered "where is the single camera that all these features are inspired by?" Simply amazing stuff... (I defintiely have to look into that open source 4K cinema camera where ML is going to be native. That alone is enough to inspire real interest in that 4k camera project for me).

Two questions...

I see you referencing a compile that's fairly recent. How can I check it against the version of ML that I've got installed now? Just to see where I am in the scheme of things...

Neither my t4i no the EOS M benefit from ML's advanced audio features. Just the VU meters are a lifesaver, so I'm not for a second complaining. I'm just curious whether it's a hardware limitation,  or whether it's just an area that requires more development than it's worth right now.

Hey there!

Been lurking for a while, and am glad to join in the conversation. I'm relatively new to ML.. only been using it for a few months. It's quickly become indispensible. I bought an EOS M exclusive;y as a guinea pig for ML, and have not regreted it.

I do have one consistent problem with the interface. I have difficulty changing the default values of some options. Let's take the FPS Override function. Turning on the mod edefaults to 2.5 fps. I'm unabl eto change that value. What buton combo do  need in order to change values lke that? (In this particular case, I also don't get the submenu that lets me adjust the Jello effect... you can guess I wanna try the slit-scan effect)

I've got ML installed on my t4i as well, and there are enough butons on there that it was easy to find how to tweak those settings, but on the EOS M, nothing I try seems to work. is there a magic button combo?

I have searched the forum for this info - sorry if its someplace super easy to locate (though the search tool doesn't like to search for the term "eos m").. I just couldn't find it.

Thanks SO MUCH for any help. I've become a huge ML fan, and am psyched to get even more out of it once I know how to make these tweaks.

Thans again!
