Raw Video / Repair that RAW SlowMoShot
« on: October 07, 2013, 09:44:16 PM »
today we started to shoot our short movie and i had some slowmotion raw shots, there was no error while shooting but when i got home, i had this broken first frame in one shot, when i load that into resolve 10like i have a corrupted greenish sequence
is it possible to repair that shot?


Would this be possible? Perhaps with an app? That would be really great on iphone 5 cause the lcd is really great ;)

Feature Requests / 10x Zoom on Halfshutter
« on: October 01, 2013, 05:16:24 PM »

with a canon autofocus lens the halfshutter zoom from liveview tweaks is not working (only works with manual focus lenses.)
as it is possible to disable halfshutter focus with costumcontrol in the canon menu, would it be possible to enable the halfshutter zoom when the focus is assigned to another button..
in my setup halfshutter would be free cause i zoom with the af on button on the 5dmk3..

another interesting idea would be a button learn option.. like midi equipment and software synths for example.
so i chose a function (zoom for example) and assign it to the desired button.

General Help Q&A / When i Export my Canon 5D Raw DNGs which Format is best?
« on: September 18, 2013, 06:45:34 AM »
hello folks!

i wanna create clips which are recorded with ml raw. and with regard to the raw dng data which is comming out of my canon 5d mk3 3 i don´t know which format is the best for rendering the videos out with no loss of quality?
prores 422? or prores 4444?

thank you very much.

lower the resolution and increase the fps :)

especially on the canon 5dmk3

or is it limited to an internal sync? eg. 4x the speed (96fps) with half the resolution (eg 960x644)for really slow motion shots.. or only a few seconds with the full res?
if no, perhaps you could explain why not.. thx

thx sw

Feature Requests / [IMPOSSIBLE] Magic Zoom Update
« on: September 01, 2013, 12:45:10 PM »
hello alex and ml team!

i like the new lv digic peaking: slightly sharper.
great addition for people who film.. and make photos with manual lenses..

so is it possible that you increase the resolution for the magic zoom too?
that would be so great because now it is so hard to decide if its focused correctly or not.
(in addition it would be great to make it possible to disable the focus confirmation cause when there is eg a splitscreen on a small sized box it is hard to see the object.)

when i am in liveview and i zoom without recording i have a great x5 and x10 resolution..
if you could manage to make that possible for magic zoom it would be a great feature.

General Help Q&A / Silent picture max exposure time??
« on: June 30, 2013, 11:09:54 PM »
Hello friends!
Tonight i tried to shoot a star timelaps again, and wanted to shoot with silent picture mode and intervallometer.
So is it only me or is it not really possible to adjust longer exposure times in silent picture mode.. ?
When shooting in photo mode with cr2 files i can adjust up to 32 seconds..

General Help Q&A / Timelaps with Silent Picture question
« on: June 29, 2013, 09:08:24 PM »

I wanna shoot a timelaps with my 5dmk3.
It would be ok for me to shoot in 1920x1080 silent picture mode with intervalometer;)
Now i have some question and perhaps someone can help me??

1 is it possible to turn off the live view when shooting with silent pictures to treat battery with care and shoot longer.

2 is it possible to change resolution (but i dont want to crop the picture..)

3 is it better to shoot with intervallometer or better to shoot with fps overwrite?

4 if fps overwrite is better how should i set the options for day to night timelaps..

5 how can i get a 6h shoot with the camera with 2 batteries? Is there a better power supply available? I have the 2batteries adapter..

Thx rene

Hello. I think i have read somewhere that it is not possible to use an external monitor when recording raw cause the hdmi output is not working?? Is that true?
Thx sw

When i import a cdng file into after effects the acr window opens. Great!
Now i can colorgrade to a flat neutral picture..
My question is: how flat and neutral this should be for applying lits..
When i import into resolve and apply the blackmagic film color space, the video looks flat and it feels like loosing some color information.. When i apply a look onto that bmcc - a 3dlut it doesnt look right..
Can anyone explain please.. How should a cdng sequence be graded in ae or resolve..
Is the video really looking the same as a bmc when the bmc film look is applied, or are there different raw bits on that bmc camera..?

General Help Q&A / Change Exposure with Timelaps Photos and XML
« on: June 19, 2013, 07:39:56 PM »
hello folks.

yesterday i shot a timelaps sequence of photos with xml sidefiles.
when i open them in adobe raw converter i can see all the files with different adjusted exposures. great. so they seem to be flicker free
how can i now change the global exposure of the shots if they are all too dark or too bright?
when i adjust one file and sync the rest, all the exposures from the xml files are useless cause the fixed values are synced to all other files..
is it possible to sync only the differences? or how do you handle it if a sequence is too bright or too dark and you want to correct it in acr..
is this possible?

thanx sw

General Help Q&A / Timelaps Question
« on: June 18, 2013, 11:46:14 PM »

today i shot my first timelaps video sequence.. puh.
i adjusted the intervall to shoot every 5 seconds, and the slowest shutter to 0.5seconds. the picture preview time was 2 sec.
everything worked as expected, but after about 5 minutes the intervall o meter suddenly changed to Shot every 1h50min...?
perhaps it was a bug? i had to turn the power off to start from the beginning.

when shooting, the mirror is always working, like when shooting a photo..
so my question is: is it possible to shoot silent, without mirror up down?

when i shoot many timelaps sequences, and i always shoot photos, perhaps 30x90 = 2700 photos..
if it would be silent, wouldn´t that leave the photo mirror counter lower..


Raw Video / why is 60fps squeezed?
« on: June 16, 2013, 12:17:46 PM »

today i played around with 60fps and my canon 5d mk3.
i wonder why all my material no matter what aspect ratio i choose is squeezed?
is it possible to record it unsqueezed with 60fps (or better say 59,94fps)

thx. sw

when i try to emulate the raw files to look like the cinemadng files from the bmcc with color space bmd film (in resolve) they look really flat.. (i have achieved that with nearly no contrast.. )
is there a special procedure to do so?
i have seen some really great luts for the bmcc and it would be great to apply them on my canon raw material.

Feature Requests / [WONTFIX] ETTR with fixed 180° for VideoRec
« on: June 07, 2013, 03:09:29 PM »

i have now great results when shooting photos with ettr and thanks to the raw histo and ettr hint. i always have an eye on this when shooting raw.
the automatic adjustment when press 2x half shutter is great and a real time saver in photo mode. but when shooting raw video it always breaks my 180° shutter rule..

is it possible to optimize that for video? (with the 180degree shutter speed rule..?
does that make sense?

so when i shoot raw, with a manual lens (aperture for dof and my fixed shutter speed (1/48sec)) then there is only the ISO setting which can be changed for setting up exposure.

so what i think would be a great time saver, press 2xhalfshutter for adjusting the exposure automatically with the iso
i know that this can be done easily when changing iso, but it would be a much faster one button solution.

thx sw


i know that there is no need for a profile when shooting raw, but there must be some specs cause the blackmagic cinema camera raw material looks really quite different.

wouldn´t it be useful to simulate that "flat raw picture style".. ?
have seen some really great material from the bmcc and there are some luts in resolve for getting great color and great contrast with a lot of detail..


Raw Video Postprocessing / Dng Preview in Mac OsX Finder
« on: May 31, 2013, 07:59:22 PM »
Is it possible to preview the generated Dng files in the finder of Mac Os 10.8?

I can only see a black window..

Thx sw

We all know that when shooting raw and globaldraw is turned on, performance is suffering, but the info from raw histo is great for adjusting exposure (ettr hints )

So wouldnt it be possible to add a feature to turn globaldraw automatically of when starting to record?

That would be a great feature!

What i also noticed is, that anamorphic correction only works when globaldraw is set to pn, so i wonder if this menu shouldnt be moved to the globaldraw menu page,

Thx greets swinxx
