I was hoping for 5DIV and 1DX  :)
 But this will never happen.

Is the Lens set to AF?

Cool! So what does that mean exactly?
Funding? Full Time Magic Lantern Developers?

Oh  :)

... Quentin is requesting black bars I think

In MLRawviewer I used ffmpeg to pad Video that wasn't 16/9 to get DNxHD with black bars

Code: [Select]
-vf pad=1920:1080:0:(1080-ih)/2
it only works correctly with footage that is 1920 pixels wide, because that was all I needed.
Combined with scaling it could be modified to work with all frame sizes and aspect ratios.

Maybe it's possible to downgrade with EOS Utility via USB

I hope the sigma fp has decent picture quality, the first sample clips weren‘t really convincing.
The 1dx III will probably cost as much as the predecessors and won‘t be affordable to most, but maybe the raw capabilities will also come to the 5D V, who knows.


Looks like the next 1D doesn‘t need ML

„with 4K video at 60p, plus the options of capturing RAW video or 10-bit 4:2:2 video with Canon Log, both recorded internally to CFexpress cards“

Would be pretty interesting to see what magic lantern could get out of a 1D X. Same generation as 5D III but dual processors and dual CF plus less noise.
But I doubt it is going to happen.

Is it an old battery? I have old batteries that behave like that. The canon charger shows a green light at the and, but the batteries are empty within a few minutes if you put them in the camera.

I never thougt they would ever work on these old cameras again.
There was a time when Canon added features with Firmware updates,
now we have to hope they didn't "close the door" with this one.

In the process of sorting my old MLVs I found a dangerous function in MLV App.
If you want to convert your uncompressed MLVs to compressed MLV and select the source folder as destination, it will destroy the MLV file you are trying to convert. Maybe there should be a warning or the file will just be named [filename]_1 or something.

But it doesn‘t work with Windows if I understand correctly.

Any chance of MLV App supporting legacy .raw files? It would be great to convert old uncompressed .raw files to compressed MLV to save some space.

Good to know, thank you

Don't know about mlv_app, MlRawViewer generates .mrx files when you first open a .mlv file

"Commit  23d3c2f  Index Expo/Wbal/Lens metadata for every MLV frame"
"Commit  65d5e57  Persist MLV index data MLV's should now only need to be indexed one time. The index is saved into the MRX file, and reloaded/used next time the set is opened. "

I don‘t know a way to bypass it or if its possible, But .raw didn‘t have audio or metadata so no indexing was needed.
And now I use mlv_app because it supports compressed raw and is actively beeing developed but i dont get realtime playback anymore

MlRawViewer has OpenGL acceleration, I have realtime playback on an 10 year old laptop.
The old .raw format had no loading time at all, since .mlv it does some indexing of the file first, that takes a little time.

Does the hardware mod involve a brick?

Great to see MlrawViewer is still being worked on. Is there a Windows Release with the added functionality on the horizon?
