One of my .RAW clips from the 5DII has Black Level of 2293 instead of 1024, as reported by RAW2CDNG-
How can I edit this?

All conversion apps make it ugly green looking as a result.
Thanks! :)

I just wrote an automatic join app for my utility BATCHelor, it is not quite ready yet- is this still an issue?

Raw Video / One RAW File totally GREEN! Need Help!
« on: June 17, 2013, 01:34:17 PM »

This is how one clip turned out. It is an important take.
Is there any method to correct this?

Exposure and White Balance sliders did not help in ACR.
It turns out this way with RAW2GPCF and RAW2CDNG.

Please help..


the split .RAW files can not be processed without joining them first. RAW2GPCF immediately closes.
GingerHDR managed to skip the joining step so I guess it is technically possible.

Do you want me to send you a test file?

Hello again,

Really fine work! Especially for my weak laptop PC, which handles all RAW data nicely with CineForm! :)

Is it possible for you to make it read the .RAW, .R00, .R01, etc. split files from the 5DII  sequentially without us having to join those beforehand?
This is really time consuming.

Hello chmee.
Thank you for your great work!

I am developing BATCHelor and awaiting eagerly your implementation of commandline. :)
I would like to know if it is possible to not have to join .RAW and .R00 , .R01,... split files beforehand, as this is tedious.

Can you implement the extraction of CDNG from split files natively?  :)

Hi Guys, I just finished a Week of shooting with our beloved 5DII RAW and worked on the automatic copying and joining of files.

I am currently thinking about iplementing copy/join only option because once you extracted your DNGs from .RAWs, there is no way to get cinemaDNG out of those, is there?

What are some of your thoughts on what BATCHelor should do on set exactly?
looking to keep your .RAWs?

My experience on set was not to process the .RAW Files because cards filled up as fast as I could copy the .RAWs, so no HDD speed for processing left..

@Shield: I am changing the enumeration to the origin file name
(which seems to have changed from 00001, 0002, etc. to current time like 1149, 1150, 1200,...)
- so your set assistant can keep track of file names for syncing audio.

@Viente: Why?

@guentergunter: Is there another tool that already does this?

try to find out if some funky folder path is the problem, delete config.ini and set your source/destination again.

this is really a problem on set. unless you have a server with RAID, I see no option other than usb 3.0 / Firewire and ssd.

hi guys,
I am looking to implement spanning support in BATCHelor.

Can someone tell me if the latest raw2dng supports spanned files without having to join them first?
this is another step in the chain i would like to avoid.

is it possible to use raw2dng on the .RAW , the .R00 and the .R01 separately, or does it only work for .RAW that is joined beforehand?
I would like to avoid joining files on harddisk first..

PS: if someone could send me R00 and RAW i would appreciate it. :)

Does this also work with a dng sequence?

the missing fps on 5DII are supposed to be my fault, because of some wrong handling with the hack. I heard if done right, the 5D does write the correct fps in the file-

black level switch would be great, also I dont know where to look up the black level for each camera

maybe unusable for final render, but I think this is the way to go for fast proxies! :)

You are the man !! Thanks so much!
what can i do about the black level?

so what do I have to do?

- install RAW module
- switch mode to C1

thats it?? :)

4K video does not look good , even on my only 2.5k monitor.
really nasty edges.
upscaling = bad idea. ;)

Okay, still crashes.
Maybe there is something else about the 5DII File. Do you have access to one?
Would it help if I uploaded a 5DII .RAW for testing purposes?

As soon as you implement Commandline, I will be happy to include it in BATCHelor. :)
(it's sticky'd if you don't know it.)
Is it planned?

Still need a 5DII .RAW File? I have one.

I am trying to reproduce the problem, but until now, no luck.

just to confirm, this works for me:
What I mean is, choose your .RAW folder, click nothing else, press GO.
It works, done.
Then, press GO again.

Then there is no output in the new, second DNG folder?

I would love to.
Sadly, DNG is not listed as a File Type, so I cant see it.

See for yourself:,69694161/hmm.gif/  :o have to have the pro version for this, don't you?

manually deleting files should not be a problem while batchelor is not running.

try to reproduce the error-
on your system, just let batchelor process the same folder twice in a row.
if everything works correctly you will get 2 folders, one with number 1, one with number 2.

let me know how it works, also try to run as admin and use short paths like C:\test to narrow down the problem.

so, is there an option to force it to crop with a commandline action?
I tried 
Code: [Select]
-422 -c -(4,0,1876,0) - still crashes.

I can not open any DNG sequences in cineform studio GUI version. nothing happens when dropping my DNG folder in the import bin.
Is that normal?


Thanks for your tireless work! I really appreciate it.
If I get it working I will implement it in BATCHelor so everyone can benefit. :)

"divisible by 16" - that one got me thinking.
As I am on 5DII, not III - my res. is 1880 - which is not divisible by 16.
There may be the problem.

I will test out your proposed method!

EDIT: You did it! :) It works! Indeed, it is all in the resolution. Man this is fast! No way for 1880 to be included?
New question: with the full cineform studio app, how do I make it accept the DNGs? I dropped a folder with DNGs on the import bin. no import. Also tried your 5DIII file (after using raw2dng), which it doesn't accept, also. what did I miss?

as these tools you mention, like VR2CF.exe only ship with premium, are you sure that I don't need premium for your tool to work?
I am trying to obtain a Phantom Raw file to test with vr2cf.exe now..

also, on this site
they say that vr2cf.exe needs another exe to run- and that these belong in the windows/system32 folder...

which command line tool would I use for converting regular H.264?

EDIT: I am using it with 5DII Raw files. this is not the problem is it?

let me know how the beta works for you, should you come to use it :)

hello DANewman.

I removed the files again and installed from the link you gave.
dependencywalker does show a little bit different.
but not much.,14209115/next.gif/
another screenshot, I really don't know how to proceed.

I am developing the BATCHelor app, and would love to include it.
But my main machine and my laptop, both german Win764 can not run the RAW2GPCF.exe
