Raw Video / Re: 550D raw video recording port official thread
« on: May 30, 2013, 07:04:30 PM »
@pavelpp: You don't need the latest nightly. mk11174 used the latest changeset (even newer than the latest nightly) to compile his latest build, with which he was able to get 960x480 stable. If mk11174 decides to share this build or a variation of it, my experience is that you won't need anything but what he shares (of course your SD card must be bootable). Cheers!

@mk11174: If you need a tester ;) for the build which gives you 960x480 stable, please count me in. Link? Thanks!



P.S. All this attention to the "20MB SD Controller limit" makes me think of the days when the idea of getting raw video out of a DSLR was a complete joke. Something tells me this too shall pass and one of the devs or another genius lurking in the shadows will figure out a way of allowing the DSLR's with "slow" SD Controllers to nevertheless approach 1920x1080. Put it this way: I wouldn't bet against these guys!

mk11174: Thanks again for the newest (FIX2) build, and for your answer re: build environment.

Just tested out FIX2 and for me at least, 960x408 gives me only 85 frames instead of continuous, while 960x402 gave me a couple of hundred before skipping a frame. So raw performance seems to be just a hair worse with all this stuff enabled, as you probably suspected. Tested this with Hack on and off and with Global Draw on and off. FYI! Look forward to reading about your continued experiments. Cheers!

mk11174: Thanks very much for sharing your builds. They worked exactly as you described; 960x408 (23.976fps) is the max I am getting as well, with a SanDisk Extreme 30MB/s Class 10 8GB card. I'm just finishing up a comparison with H.264 which I will post when it is finished. The detail in the raw pics compared to that in a cropped H.264 video is just amazing. And opening them in ACR and being able to push and pull them so much without them falling apart is really exciting.
Also, thanks for sharing the documentation of the changes you made. This is going to force me to get a build environment going. May I ask which OS you are using for compiling, and how you set up your tool chain (pre-built toolchain, VM, or DYI)? Cheers!

mk11174: awesome news! Are you able to share your build with another 550d tester? If not, do you have an ETA for your work to make it into the Nightly Builds? In any case, great work. Cheers!


P.S. Can you also share the "Modules" folder or a link to where it can be downloaded? Great!

mageye: Right-click on imported sequence in After Effects, select Interpret Footage>Main. Set Frame Rate to 24.

To make this the default: Edit>Preferences>Import, set Sequence Footage to 24 (or whatever you want the default to be).


Feature Requests / Re: SD/CF Card ID

Pelican: thank you for your reply. I wish I understood what you meant! Is this a menu item in ML or were you being cryptic? Is this a planned future item ("the new flexinfo system") or...what?

In any case, thank you for your quick response!


Feature Requests / SD/CF Card ID
« on: February 26, 2013, 12:13:23 PM »
It might be nice to know with which SD/CF card I am currently shooting, without having to A) Turn off the camera and B) take the card out to look at the label. What about displaying this somewhere on the GUI? I have my cards numbered N001, N002, etc. Could we see this somewhere in the GUI, perhaps with a "card" icon?

There could be a very small (read-only?) text file on each card which ML could read to get the "N001" (or whatever) label.

Good idea?
