HDR and Dual ISO Postprocessing / Re: New "Ginger HDR" workflow
« on: December 06, 2012, 08:19:46 AM »
Hi! Since then it's been a few months, and the support did not answer ...

Write to them again. Maybe they missed your mail. Do give clear details on when it was working, what changed and what you did about it.

I've had very good experienced with writing to them (even though i was using the trial version) - so i suggest you give it another shot.

Is there a simple way to complete the work in another editor instead of After Effects or FCP? Also, how to interpolate the frames so i can still get 30 fps?

See the attached video in the first post.

Roughly, what you need to do is run "Merger".

Choose to export "Magic Lantern HDR" (NOT the 'wrapper' option -- in other words, the old workflow).

Choose "Merger Type = Full speed" (This will ensure the output stays the same as the input 30 fps)

Run it.

You should get a resultant EXR sequence which should (?) open in another editor of your choise. (Make sure you use/set the sequence as 16-bits per channel to get the full dynamic range)



You need to import that sequence of still images that you took into premiere so that it makes a video sequence.

Instructions may differ for your version, but this should give you the idea:

- Ignore the part about pixel aspect ratio, yours will be sqaure.
- Do however change the frame rate depending on how fast you want it to play.

In the ML menu, go to the OVERLAYS tab.

The first option is "Globaldraw" -- what is it on? (I suggest you set it to LiveView).

After that, in LiveView -- keep pressing the INFO button to cycle through display modes until you see the globaldraw elements you want.

Here's another thread with exactly the same question (first result when i googled your error message!):

Thanks - though 95% of that went above my head :)

I guess maybe you and DFM can stir up a conversation here !


^ Nice.

What is that scrolling histogram like thing on the bottom right of your screen?

Hi y3llow,

Could you explain what you have said in a little more detail please?

Also jonnyginese -- check out the free and very simple program "merger" that is included with Ginger HDR.

It will let you choose your ML HDR video, set the exposure difference (EV) and then render it out as EXR files which can be imported into Premiere or After Effects. Once thats in your Adobe program as 32-bit files, you can do with it as you wish. Old workflow video :

There is also a newer, easier workflow that makes a tiny GNR file instead of EXRs, but that requires you to purchase Ginger HDR ($149) if you want to be able to import them.

@ y3llow -- say i import the EXR sequence after running the merger step as described above -- will i still be facing the issue you mentioned in your post above this?

@ martareis - here's how to fix your issue:

1) After you downloaded the Ginger HDR file from their website, you need to unzip it.

2) The resultant folder then has a few sub folders :
/Ginger-HDR-Adobe-Win32/  ---  Open this folder if you are on a 32-bit OS
/Ginger-HDR-Adobe-Win64/  ---  Open this folder if you are on a 64-bit OS

3) Copy all the files in that folder (except the "PRM" file if it exists)

4) Navigate to your After Effects plugin directory. Usually :
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CS5.5\Support Files\Plug-ins\Effects

5) Paste the files there

6) Go back to the unzipped folder. Find "LicenseManager.exe" and run it

7) Open AE -- and you should be all set.

FYI - There is also a "README-Instructions.txt" file in the unzipped folder that should cover this  :P


DTIFM -- just to add to (/ correct) something you said at the end of your video about zoom button not working when recording:

It IS possible to use them >>


A bit Off Topic:

If you shoot in the bright sun, search for "60D v3 viewfinder" or "GGS 60D viewfinder".

Buy one of them. I just got my "V3" (that too for $11 including shipping - after seeing a recommendation on this forum).

I've used it once and i absolutely love the functionality it provides. So much so, that i even used it for pictures with LiveView (and manual focus + LV zoom).

I've also bought a GGS, but its not arrived as yet.


Feature Requests / Re: Save WB and ISO presets
« on: September 01, 2012, 09:44:13 AM »
Expanding further on this request:

Savable user profiles, with the following settings:
- White Balance
- AF mode
- Drive mode
- Metering mode
- HTP on/off
- Picture style
- Exposure compensation (a lot of people like shooting -1/3rd by default)
- Video shutter speed
- Audio settings
- etc

Arrow/SET keys can be used to switch between user profiles

An option to "reset to a selected profile @ power ON" : Helps avoid shooting with exposure compensation, wrong ISO selected, wrong shutter angle, etc.


@ DTIFM - As a1ex said, its done in v2.3

Enable it:
Menu > Prefs > Arrow/SET shortcuts > Audio Gain : ON

When shooting in MOVIE mode:
1) Press the key that activates the on-screen arrow shortcuts (on my 60D its the "metering" button (to the right of ISO button))
2) Use up/down arrow keys to control OUT +/- and left right for VOL +/-

General Help Q&A / Re: EOS 60D downgrade to 1.1.0 - how?
« on: August 27, 2012, 03:49:40 PM »
Just for the benefit of others reading this, i believe the latest ML (2.3) requires you to be running 1.1.1 on the 60D.

Its the previous versions that needed 1.1.0

Ahh thanks! That explains the multiple colours.

However, what is the difference between "Global focus" and "Local focus"? What do they mean?

Lastly, a thought for the future:
Instead of warm/cold colours, would it be possible to use transparencies? (eg. a 90% opacity focus peak for something high contast/in focus, and 40% for a softer edge/less in focus)

Cheers, and keep up the awesome work!!

Hi guys,

Hear me out :

1) Canon has "Exposure compensation" in its regular menu for the Movie mode. However, its hard to reach and can't be changed on the fly.

2) Magic lantern has these cool "Arrow / SET Shortcut" keys for things like Audio gain, ISO, LCD brightness

Why not allow exposure compensation in movie mode as one of the Arrow shortcuts?

Most of us shoot in Manual Exposure mode, however, we shoot in Auto ISO. Its just convenient, and less to worry about - rather than constantly having to change ISO as well as focus, etc etc.

This exposure compensation adjustment will let us be more creative when shooting things like silhouettes etc, and will make it easy!

Has v2.3 discontinued this for the 60D as well? Its no longer working on mine. :(

Also i believe the mode dial remapping was discontinued because it caused issues?

So in v2.3, whats the fastest / other ways to get into Movie mode?


What do "global focus" & "local focus" mean when selected as options in the focus peaking menu?

Do the different colours shown in these modes represent something?

Why would i choose one of these over a plain colour like Red for example?

On the 600D, first you have to press the DISP button, after which the up/down & left/right will control whatever you have turned on in the "Prefs (;-)) > Arrows/Set shortcuts" menu.

If you turn on more than one item, the DISP button will cycle through them with each press.

I see that this has eventually been implemented! AWESOME! Thanks  :D

"Very fast playback zoom
For photographers this function is invaluable – simply press Zoom-In one time, and Magic Lantern will zoom all the way in. With fast 100% zoom you will be checking critical focus much faster than with standard firmware and multiple button pushes before you get to full zoom. Press Zoom-In again and you are back at full view. This option is fully configurable – you can choose to zoom in center, on current AF point, or remember last position."


General Help Q&A / Re: Bulb Ramping Calibration Fails (60D)
« on: July 07, 2012, 03:43:07 PM »

Calibration successful. Time to put it through a real test now!

Also this version seems to have fixed the problem i was having with FPS override earlier (even at very low FPS, the buffer would run out - now it doesn't even cross 20%).

« on: July 07, 2012, 09:01:32 AM »
Hi all,

I tried searching the forum but couldn't find any specific solution on this.

I was wondering if maybe i am missing an essential step or setting?

I follow the instructions on the user guide ( - but it still always says :
- Scene too bright
- Scene too dark
- Scene not static

Sometimes (rare) it finishes with a flat graph. Other times it only gets half way through that graph. ONCE i got a nice S curve. But most of the times, the graph doesn't even begin to plot.

Here's a video i made to show you guys the procedure i follow and what happens. (I didn't use manual WB - but the same thing happens if i do).

Can i make it work somehow? or is this a bug that will be fixed in the upcoming release?

Thanks for the help and thanks again for the AWESOMENESS that is ML. :)

Feature Requests / [WONTFIX] Sensor Cleaning Only At Shutdown?
« on: July 07, 2012, 07:42:15 AM »
Here's a quick one :

Though i know sensor cleaning can be manually skipped by pressing a button, its still a irritating/slow process - especially if people turn their camera on to use it immediately (to shoot or start changing settings).

Manual sensor cleaning only - its an existing option, but it wouldn't be done as frequently as most would like.

Sensor cleaning at shutdown - this never bothered anybody.

Suggestion : Have an ML tweak option that enables sensor cleaning ONLY at shutdown. Its the best of both/all worlds!


General Help Q&A / Re: How to access ISO 25600 on 60D?
« on: July 05, 2012, 12:42:50 PM »
For the life of me, I cant figure out how to set the ISO on my 60D to 25600 with ML.

It mentions in the documentation that its "model dependent". I have a 60D as well, and could not get past 12800 ISO -- so i don't think we have 25600 as an option.
