I prefer having it edited on the repository, because from this format I can generate PDF, HTML, wiki and in-camera BMP versions.

Ahhh, nice I see. Cool!

Hm.... People are talking about this API/documentation thing

I'm a business analyst  (and getting my feet wet as a QA analyst for experience sake) in IT for a major retail chain. Pretty much my entire job is documentation. While I'm not familiar with actual coding (yet!), I do have a good amount of experience under me in documentation of features, specs, etc. Wondering if maybe I can at least hash out the overall doc and get it flowing, and then some if the devs can provide all the detail where necessary?

Maybe it'd make sense to start with 2.3? Then for every stable release I can have the changelog in the doc, documenting everything?

I don't know; just something I'm throwing out there. If no one still has 'formerly' documented all the bits of code, if be more than willing to help :) might even get started right now. (Unless any objections?)

***New Build of Tragic Lantern uploaded***


As the 50D and several other models have been removed from the nightly builds (at least temporarily until the acceptable parts of Tragic Lantern are ported), you have the option of either building your own or downloading my build of 1%'s Tragic Lantern for the 50D.

I regularly receive messages regarding these builds as to their reliability and safety but I can only offer my opinion based on my own experience and daily usage. I am not an experienced coder. I have very basic knowledge (enough to compile and port a few things) and accept that developers like a1ex and g3gg0 would not highlight the dangers of such builds without good cause. I therefore state again that using these builds may damage your camera, although I have never personally had any problems.

By installing an unsupported build of Magic Lantern (as is the case with Tragic Lantern) you do so unsupported and entirely at your own risk. Please do not expect a1ex or other devs to come to the rescue if something breaks.

Hopefully, with a little help from willing users we can begin to commit things back to the main Magic Lantern Unified build and get it back into the nightly releases but for now, if you want the latest features, you will need to use Tragic Lantern.

Tragic Lantern is a rolling release and many features are experimental, specific to certain cameras and not thoroughly tested (although I do try to test as much as possible before uploading a new build). Tragic Lantern still has issues with incorrect shutter readout and problems with digital ISO. Please do not ask me when this will be fixed. I simply don't know and my guess is that it is a fairly big issue that will need a lot of work by a knowledgeable dev.

The latest build

It's been about a month since I last uploaded a build. There have been improvements to mlv_rec which is now, IMO, as useable as raw_rec with the added benefit of metadata, however raw_rec is still included and has an 'experimental' feature of selectable single or double buffering. It is up to you to test and report back here ;)

The Histogram was broken for several months and nobody noticed. A1ex spotted that only the top half of the histogram was being used (probably why the lower half always appeared red). This is now fixed.

mlv_play has had a few improvements and is useable for either .mlv or .raw video playback. You can press the camera play button to instantly access playback of your most recent shot and use the top wheel to scroll through other shots. Pressing the Picture Style button will bring up the player controls with selectable (fast) playback in grayscale or (slow) color. You can also now delete clips using the player.

The issue with pink or corrupt frames (.mlv) was resolved in the last build but has since been found to be overkill, lowering the priority of the writer below what the camera is capable of. The priority has been increased and you can now shoot .mlv with Global Draw ON and use focus peaking. I have tested this feature and not had any pink frames but please report if you have this problem. A balance needs to be found between performance and reliability.

To work around the shutter issue I suggest setting the shutter angle in the main menu and then locking the shutter in the movie menu (movie tweaks) after setting your desired fps with FPS override.

There are also several other minor tweaks and fixes but mostly to backend stuff.

If you have to ask me how to install it you really shouldn't be using it! ;)

OT: You also download my FREE Film Punch LUT:

50d comin in Monday. Staying tuned now with this thread :]

Finding music for my Videos is not a problem. I use Magic Lantern to (help) create the music videos for my own songs  :P

Lol that's how I got into this video/film world as well :P Making images for my music! I'd post my site, but unfortunately godaddy is holding back my site because I'm broke for the next two weeks lol (I'm an ableton guy myself; heavy into the strings/composition arena)

But yeah nice links, and in sure this thread will be very helpful for any guys looking for music places!
