Camera-specific Development / Re: Canon 50D

I've got quite a lot of ML video from my 50D, recorded at 23.976fps. Its metadata reports it is 30fps (as noted elsewhere).
If I put it into my NLE (Lightworks) and slow it down to 80% normal speed, the NLE does this by inserting extra (copy) frames once in a while, which is a bit clunky. If I use FFMPEG to re-label it as 24fps (near enough!), it only seems to be able to do this by re-encoding, which given that these are lossy codecs is, again, a bit clunky - not to mention time consuming.
Has anyone figured out how to just change the appropriate metadata in the ML output so it is correctly labelled as 23.976fps? This mis-labelling by ML is proving to be a very irritating bug!

Hi there. I don't think you'll find anything specific to video in the Canon 50D menus about video, as the 50D isn't supposed to shoot video. However, in the ML menus, under the 'movie camera' symbol you can turn video recording on and off - enable it here. Then select live preview mode (the button above the screen that turns on live preview), then if you press the button in the middle of the control wheel on the back, you can start and stop recording video. Once you can do that, you can play with all the other settings, which are explained in the ML menu.
