Is there any detailed explanation of the shooting and conversion process with MLV?

Is the VAF user installable?

New discovery: Digic Focus Peaking + Cartoon Look 1 = better peaking :)

Johansugarev - If you're referring to the auto exposure module it's for photos. It doesn't work in Live View. I don't think what you describe is possible. You need auto ISO with ramping and that, AFAIK, doesn't work on the 50D.
I am not that lost and was talking about regular stills without live view. I figured it out and it suits my needs. Thanks :)

I tried not to fiddle with tragic lantern, but since it works there and there are a lot of exciting stuff, here goes.
It works nice for when someone how can't expose happens to use the camera. I want to configure it so it starts pushing the ISO up only when the lowest shutter speed that I have selected isn't giving it enough light. It sort of does it when I pushed the ISO curve to the right a bit.
So I am giving it a minimum shutter of 1/80, ISO from 100-1600 and aperture wide open all the time and what I want is to keep as low as ISO can go until I run out of light for 1/80 at ISO 100 then jack up the iso for a correct exposure. I am guessing the exposure compensation will work as advertised?

With the latest (18 august) release of andy's magic lantern compile, (freshly installed on a clean 2.3 installation on a brand new kompoterbay card formatted only once in-camera) I have yet to see how autoexposure works. I enable the module and turn it on in the exposure menu with the camera on M mode. Nothing changes with the behaviour of the camera. Am I missing something?

Raw Video / Re: How do you use ETTR while shooting RAW video
« on: August 23, 2013, 04:53:03 PM »
The way I expose is - fps override on - 24fps, exposure override on - 1/48 preferably; Basicly any fps has double the shutter speed. Then I put a variable ND on the lens and watch the raw histogram. Just like in audio - you want it to cover at least halfway the histogram and strive to get it as much to the right as you can without going over the right border - clipping. Simple.

With the new Magic Lantern build Auto Exposure does not work for me. I enable it and nothing changes.

If someone were to make a VAF it should be calibrated for the max resolution the 50D can handle - 1584 by 1058. Crop mode does not need a VAF in my opinion.

you have to replace all folders in ML on your card with the once in the new build. Some would consider this common sense.

Why does the preview in all tragic lantern builds not fill the entire screen like all other ML builds?
Also, what is a good way of unloading cards on location? my laptop does not have usb3.0 and 64gb takes forever.

Wich means you can adjust the picture style to have a pleasing image while recording.

It seems there is no point of going above ISO 1600 on this camera - they are all digitally amplified after 1250 or so. Also, DxOmark measured ISO 100 to be 157 and ISO 200 to be 158 - so in real world conditions they should be about the same. The question is which has more dynamic range. Oddly enough they start their dynamic range test at ISO 200, measuring 11.4 stops.
It seems many sensors are geared toward ISO 200, and ISO 100 is just negative digital amplification. Don't know if this is the case for the 50D, but I've heard a lot of Nikons are like that. I am still waiting for someone to tell me to forget ISO 100 and always use 200, though.

Someone said earlier that the analog ISO on the 50D is from 200 to 1250; does that mean that 200 is better than 100 (i.e. more dynamic range and not digitally amplified)?

Or is it a good idea to use the embeded 50d profile first (i work with cdng from raw magic) to denoise and sharpen, export in dng and run through camera raw again with your profile and adjust the highlight/shadow areas if needed?

Any way of creating a duplicate of the 50D profile ACR has but without the highlight/shadow voodoo that causes flickering?

Tragic Lantern / Re: Flicker in ACR/After Effects
« on: August 14, 2013, 04:24:45 PM »
Okay, there have been popping up presets for After Effects/Adobe to get flat pictures, import or render them to 10bit and apply luts or whatever. I've also read people complaining about flickering in ACR.

So far so good, I remember that on LRtimelapse (nice program) there is a general consens to not use highlight recovery, black , white, shadows,etc... because they are not linear but some "secret sauce" which depends on the scene. This doesn't matter to stills (which it was designed for) but when movement comes into play this can actually generate flicker. It does not always happen, but sometimes you get the flickering.

To avoid this, I have "created" two a camera profiles which give you a very flat picture style and some desaturation. This is just a test as I'm not an expert but I think it works fine (tried out with the 50d raw video with cdng files). I will look into it again when I have some time. Here are the camera profiles:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/sxxj82szbimxn8f/MLfilm%20slight.dcp
https://www.dropbox.com/s/8yhv4qsquaygs3s/MLfilm%20strong.dcp

You have to put them into c:/users/"your username"/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/CameraRaw/CameraProfiles

Afterwards they should appear under the camera calibration tab.

Do these profiles include the 50D's noise patterns and other things ACR has specifically profiled for the camera, or are just flat profiles?

Should I wait before trying Dual ISO in photo mode? Is it safe enough right now? Is there an easy conversion tool for Mac?

hey dudes
help me please

i got canon 50d and lexar x1000 16gb card

i try to record raw video it gives 30 fps

i try to FPS override and i get 2 fps

whats wrong?

i need 24 fps anyone know how to get 24 fps?

or which card should i use on canon 50d?
or should i format lexar x1000 in some way to get 24 fps?
Enable FPS override and push the FUNC button. A menu will popup where you can select your desired fps. Anything below 30 works like a charm. You also have to interpret the footage as 24fps in you NLE.
BTW, what mode of FPS override do you guys choose with RAW? I leave it with low light.

Can you recreate the error and explain what you did?

I shot with the latest TL build today and didn't have any issues.
After enabling all modules, went into Live View and from there hopped back to ML>Live View settings>advanced settings>kill canon gui>off
Back in live view, ML gui started to flicker and the camera stopped responding, had to pull out batteries.
With the other build, the Magic Lantern one, it still flickers but does not crash.
I am guessing it will be sorted out when the time comes.

Btw, I am getting happy results with RawMagic from the app store and Photoshop CC, where I do corrections then export as tiffs and import in AE CC. No shadows flicker even if I use the shadow/highlight recovery and exposure quite hard. I need to test more and I'll post a video.

Latest Tragic Lantern froze my 50D when I tried to enable Canon GUI to see where the focus box is.

I have tried the BMCC and it's great, five years ago who would have dreamed of such a camera? The reason I stick to Canon DSLRs because I believe they are the future of digital filmmaking - that is mainly thanks to the ML team. With the expensive cameras like the RED and Arri you have to rent, but for the money you could have two or three 5Dmk3's and shoot stunning video.
Five months ago, who would compare these cameras? Who knows what could be possible with the next camera.
I would worry a lot more about getting the right lens.

Will the new format change the workflow a lot? I got used to RawMagic to Photoshop to TIFF to After Effects. As I see it the benefit would be easier file spanning and metadata in the dng's?
