Feature Requests / Re: Setting shoot delay and shoot time
« on: July 25, 2013, 09:56:32 AM »
Hello I have the same request, but in millisecond world :)

I use my camera for some "creative"shoot with an home-made trigger and sometimes I have the necessity of take the picture some millisecond (from 50 to 500 more or less) after the trigger release (if necessary also use only the half-shutter it's ok)

Maybe add this as an option to intervalometer?
I think (I hope not to be wrong) it's not too hard to implement it, someone who will be the angel?
Maybe this also need to change the timer to use millisecond timer like a1ex suggested here:

If you for recording time mean for how much time the camera shoot photos, you can already do it with intervalometer, you only have to set after how many shot stop instead of how many seconds/minutes.
If you mean video recording time I think this option (not in RAW rec) sadly (but I can be wrong) is not more present.
I miss it also.

Please add also support for markers while recording (for a lot easier life in post-prod)

(as requested here

First of all in recording, but now that you have said it, also in play mode it can be useful :)

(both in RAW and normal video mode)

I agree,
a simple button to press will suffice to make life a lot easier in post-production :)

Scripting Q&A / Re: Focus infinity
« on: July 13, 2013, 06:42:42 PM »
Absolutely agree...
I have exactly the same problems, especially at night.
Even better I think is to have the possibility to choose if map the button to infinity or hyperfocal

The big problem is that we have to wait a TCC script module for run it. :(
After the current raw implementation TCC act only as a ELF loader for modules...
The "scripting" part has been removed.
Also the API are not existent at the moment.
I miss a lot at least PicoC scripting. :( :(

Could you please post a diff file of your changes against the standard code?
I think can be interesting to have a look to your code :)

Thank you.

+1 Definitely interested.
I can't wait to test it.

Thank you in advance 1%

I'm on Windows 7 64bit or Linux and I will be pleased to beta-test the software too.
Thank you.

Feature Requests / Re: Intervalometer priority over Trap focus
« on: July 08, 2013, 05:22:58 PM »
Good idea, I was thinking about the same, for a similar scenario but you are right, more possible uses.

The idea is that every time a subject enter into focus , the "focus trap" trigger the intervalometer (ex. Shoot as crazy for 6 pics).
A little more complex is for the logic of what doing after, without manual intervention, if the subject re-enter into focus zone.
Maybe a simple timer to set for how much time ignore it the "trap focus" after the last shootout will just suffice.

Thank you brapodam,

the problem is the posted by dhilung is yet became a little outdated, most of the recent changes in ML are in raw_rec.c

For that I'm interested to apply the patch to last version, to have the feature but with last changes...but one of them kill the feature :(

I've just tested the exact build you write and the "Skipping interval" entry doesn't appear.
That build is compiled "vanilla" without external patches applied I think.
Only the "Frame skipping" entry are present (because it is in the standard ML code and isn't part of a patch)

I'm still watching about changing intervalometer to mili- and microseconds timers but it seems too difficult for me alone  :( :(
Hint? 8)


Yes, I'm in Movie mode (also because on last versions RAW Video can only work in movie mode)
I tried enable it to 2 or 4 second and than pressed liveview button to star recording
Have you tried your patch also on last committs? Maybe one of the last changes broken it... :(

(FPS override disabled, just to be sure)
Frame skipping disabled (it's correct, isn't it?)

If I remember correctly CHDK already have something maybe it can't be too difficult to port it :)

Maybe :)

It can be under a new entry in the Frame skipping menu named something like "Until buffer reversal completation".
ML will skip frames "Until buffer reversal completation".
In this case the logic seems that the recording continue in same file.

Another possibility is that when the option "Movie restart = on" ,
ML check and if also "is in RAW recording", instead of use the H264 procedure,
it enable a trigger to start video again at the end of buffers to SD/CF reversal write
(In this case instead maybe seems more logic to create a new file)

Thank you A1ex,

Maybe I don't understood completely your answer but I was thinking if is not more simple an maybe reliable to just insert something like a trigger than when enabled at the end of buffers to SD/CF reversal write, instead of ending, it start video again?


Well done g3gg0  :)

I already have an idea for when will have some sort of scripting module... :P
It would be nice to have the possibility to edit and change some script value directly on-camera from the file_viewer module.

Thank you Andy600 but I already tried with frame skipping but the result are totally different than wanted

Example  1280x720@30p

press record
150/200 frames (about 5-7.5 sec) @ 30p
wait for buffer to SD write complete
press record again
150/200 frames (about 5-7.5 sec) @ 30p

press record
150/200 frames (about 5-7.5 sec) @ 30p
[frame skipping became active]
indefinitely frames @ less than 15fps
stop record
[starting buffer to SD write]

So, with the frame skipping option enabled after the buffers gets full, I only obtain an infinity-long low-fps in-utilizable videos.
Instead I want that  (with Movie Restart option = on),  after the buffers gets full, ML writes it to SD as usual but immediately after that automatically start a new record. (like in H264 videos,)

I've tried your code on the last committ on my 60D but unfortunately seems doesn't work :(

The menu entry appear correctly.
I set frame skip to 4 second.
Then the RAW recording started OK but ignored the settings.
It "eat" all the about 150 frames at normal 30fps speed in about 5 second

(FPS override disabled, just to be sure)

Yesterday I shoot again in RAW and especially the "Movie Restart" not working in RAW is very annoying.
You have to be concentrated on the display waiting just to know when push record button again :(
I was thinking it's not too difficult to add it, isn't it?

Stzupy some times ago made a program for control magic lantern from Android devices, but now unfortunately after many changes to menu system is not working anymore :(
I miss it a lot.
If you can make a program for it I'm with you :)

Could you post a diff file of your modification?
Better if is it against last commits. :)

Thank you.

Feature Requests / Re: PicoC or TCC Scripting (Module?)
« on: July 01, 2013, 12:22:28 PM »
Any volunteer to restore PicoC script feature or starting to move to TCC? :)

Modules Development / Re: Bolt trigger module test results
« on: June 26, 2013, 09:46:27 AM »
Before trying it unsuccessfully :),

It's the module still working after changeset 90c50ab 2013-06-20?
<Experimental buffering strategy for raw_rec (variable buffering). Caveats: breaks bolt_rec......>
I've also see some changes in module api/requirement.

but an intervalometer change to be more precise could be for example the possibility of shoot fullres RAW picture not rounded to +-1sec
Or are there other collateral effects?

I'm rather brave,
but the change of intervalometer loop to milliseconds clock maybe is a little over my knowledge... :(
Anyone can please help me?
