Raw Video Postprocessing / Re: ProRes 4444 XQ
« on: January 17, 2016, 06:28:51 AM »
Hello everyone,

     I am doing a 48 hour film challenge for fun this upcoming weekend, and am using my 7D for raw video. My Macbook Pro is okay for offloading with MLVFS and converting to ProRes 4444 XQ with After Effects and Camera Raw/VisionLog/Vision Log to REC 709 LUT. However, my friend just made a really beefy computer, but it is Windows platform. He has Adobe CC 2015. Is there any way to make it possible for Windows to support ProRes 4444 XQ video files to edit in Premiere Pro? The only possible way I see so far is Cinemartin (costs money) or somehow making the files I dragged from Final Cut Pro X (or Motion, don't remember which one it was - RedDeerCity showed us on this forum post) compatible on Windows. If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it. This would be a lot easier to edit in Premiere Pro on a beefy system with all the ProRes 4444 XQ files. Thanks!

Raw Video / Re: 24p JPG image capture
« on: January 11, 2016, 06:48:24 AM »
Hey trip3980,

     Thanks so much for the tip. I went into my noise reduction settings and turned it all the way up to strong I believe, and on the T3i it was high. The default is Standard I believe. Just to make sure, you said to turn up noise reduction to prevent colored noise, correct? Thanks again for the help.

Hey trip3980,

     I love that video you posted, it has helped me get rid of dead pixels ever since. With raw video, dead pixels increase with high ISO, and even when you go back down in ISO, they're still there. Adobe Camera Raw is able to fix this. I'm not sure if they could be fixed in jpeg, but I'm not even sure if the problem would still exist since it's not raw video. H.264 gets a few pixels here and there, but that's easily manageable through this video. Is there a way to remove it in a jpeg or H.264 video once the dead pixel is in the image?

Hey trip2980,

     I really like this idea, quite fascinating actually. The only question I have is: If I get a dead pixel(s) (happens with the 7D with raw video and compressed H.264) in jpeg 4K, is there absolutely no way to remove it? Thanks for implementing this idea!

Hardware and Accessories / Re: 550d VAF-txi filter problem
« on: January 03, 2016, 07:55:56 PM »
I can confirm as well that replacing the shutter on my Canon T3i fixed the Err 20 issue with the VAF-TXI. Mosaic Engineering told me this would most likely fix the issue, and it did! It's a bummer to have to replace the shutter, but according to Canon, it needed to be replaced anyway. Also, if you don't have the money to spend on this filter, you can purchase for $9, the Visiontech Picture Profile (You also get Visioncolor). Here is the link to purchase: http://www.vision-color.com/visioncolor-for-canon-eos/ This cuts down on moire and aliasing pretty well in 1080p mode. I am just happy that this filter works in 720p mode (Mosaic Engineering told me), as well as all my lenses but my Opteka 6.5mm fisheye. Mosaic Engineering confirmed the Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 will work with this filter, but the Canon EF-S 10-22mm f3.5-4.5 doesn't work well. I also am finding this product very helpful for raw video. I hope this helps anyone out there trying to remove moire and aliasing.

Hardware and Accessories / Zoom H6 and Canon DSLR simultaneous recording
« on: January 03, 2016, 07:40:46 PM »
Hello everyone,

     I just bought a Zoom H6, and have a Canon T3i and Canon 7D. I'm trying to figure out how to trigger the recorder and DSLR to record at the same time. This is to avoid possibly forgetting to record on the recorder, but recording on the DSLR and vice versa. Simply, it would be awesome and a lot easier. This is based on this forum post: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7890.0 but it hasn't had a post since March of 2015, and I just wanted to see if anyone has found a solution to this. I wanted to see if there is a way to get SMPTE Output on my DSLRS, and does anyone know of a set of cords that would work in order to pull this off? Thanks.

Hardware and Accessories / Re: Canon 600D Lenses: what's better?
« on: January 02, 2016, 10:18:36 PM »
     I have the Canon 50mm f1.8 EF, Canon 24mm f2.8 EF-S, Canon 100mm f2.8 macro, and Tamron 17-50 f2.8 VC. I absolutely love these lenses, but the one I use most is the Tamron. I really don't think you would regret purchasing this. I looked into the Sigma, and I agree what you said about detailed photos and not as good stabilization (from my research). The VC (Image Stabilization) on the Tamron is amazing. This focal range is perfect, and the lense I have is sharp. With unsharp mask in post production, it is even sharper!Definitely try it out.

     Another option is the Canon FD lenses. You can actually buy an active adapter for these on Ebay, and they will then work electronically with your camera. So if you find one great FD lense for the price, you could go this route. The active adaptation is around $100, and although I haven't tried it or the FD lenses, I still think this is a great route for getting good video quality at a decent price.

     I hope this helps you on your journey to buying a new lens for your DSLR.

Hello everyone,

     I recently purchased the Zoom H6, and came across this thread. A brilliant idea, that's for sure. I have the T3i and 7D. I have read all the posts, and I just wanted to ask: Is there any way to pull of recording in camera that triggers the Zoom H6 to record at the same time? It seems there isn't but, I figured I would ask since March of 2015 was the last post. If someone could just let me know yes or no, or if there is a way I can attempt this by purchased certain cords I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

Whenever I go out shooting I use a battery grip for the T3i and 7D. I'm a big fan, and have complete confidence you will not experience issues versus without a battery grip. Be careful lending your camera to someone. Make sure to ask yourself how much your camera is really worth to you, and if the person is experienced and takes care of the equipment they already own. I hope this helps.

Hey DeafEyeJedi,

     Sorry about the delayed response. I saw Reddeercity showed a screenshot that it works. Yeah I'm really pumped now, especially since I now can see how much of a difference this codec is compared to ProRes 4444! It's interesting because I messaged Adobe through chat on their website (phone calls weren't supported that day, I think it was Cyber Monday) and the tech said this is a known problem and should be addressed in the next update. So yeah it's definitely ridiculous it took this long, but at least she held up to her word!

Hello,

     I just wanted to let everyone know that the new Adobe Fall 2015 release now has ProRes 4444 XQ support. Not sure if it is still required to drop the Quicktime files from Final Cut Pro X to the Quicktime folder like Red Deer City did, but I just tested exporting in Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Media Encoder. Flawless.

General Development / Re: Dealing with Focus Pixels in raw video
« on: October 23, 2015, 05:50:53 AM »
     I'm not sure if I have the exact same issue, but I have had my 7D record hot pixels in raw video. This of course happens in H.264 as well if not using the sensor cleaning trick for a while (I believe this is a common problem with the 7D - occurs with the film school I go to with their 7Ds, and less of a problem with my T3i). The trick is doing manual sensor cleaning with just the body cap on and pointing down for thirty seconds. But what's nice about raw video is when I do get hot pixels, I am able to remove them with "Remove Chromatic Aberration" in Adobe Camera Raw (or Lightroom probably). I am completely aware not everyone can afford these programs, especially with Adobe Creative Cloud, but it is possible to buy Lightroom 5 on disc I believe for a reasonable price.

     I hope this is helpful. It seems you are trying to eliminate the problem in the first place, which is great, just figured I would inform you and the forum of how I remove the hot pixels. Hope all is well!

Camera-specific Development / Re: Canon 760D / T6s
« on: October 23, 2015, 05:40:41 AM »
Ok I understand. Yeah I hope it's not true, but I had been wondering this regardless of the video posted by Art of the Image. I know with the new Canon 1D series Canon threatened to sue Magic Lantern, and Magic Lantern respected why Canon was being protective of their sails and said they won't touch the camera. This just made me wonder about Canon and if they were going to try to block Magic Lantern being paranoid or something. This whole concept has been boggling my mind for quite a bit, glad to hear some answers. There's still hope!

     Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Canon now makes firmware unhackable for the newer DSLRs such as the Rebel T6i, T6s, 7D Mark II, 5D Mark IV and 5DS R. I watched a video on Youtube by Art of the Image explaining this:
     I hope i'm wrong!

Raw Video / Re: Canon 7D: Best CF card for ML Raw Video (No Crop Mode)
« on: October 22, 2015, 07:26:35 PM »
     Alright awesome. Thanks so much DeafEyeJedi for all of this helpful information! I will definitely consider KB if I need more cards in the future. I agree, the Sandisk is a steal. I'm just hoping it will work well for what I need! I actually ordered Mosaic Engineering's VAF-7D, but yes the crop mode is nice for eliminating most of the moire and aliasing. The thing I worry about is getting the shot right because with 1080 or 2K the shot is wider than what the screen shows in crop mode. I personally like to upscale footage to 4K using Red Giant's Instant 4K since the Youtube compression is better upscaled. I hope all is well with you, and thanks again for your help!

Raw Video / Re: Canon 7D: Best CF card for ML Raw Video (No Crop Mode)
« on: October 22, 2015, 07:47:06 AM »
     Hey DeafEyeJedi thanks so much for responding to my post.

     I have heard a lot of mixed reviews about Komputerbay. At this point, I am not sure if they are reliable at all based on the horror stories I have read. My major concern is raw video being ruined because of corrupted frames. I get the idea these are CF cards from top brands that are defected and Komputerbay sells them for cheaper, with a "Lifetime Guarantee" but no refund policy. But I see you a lot on this forum, so I trust your input. Do you mind informing me about these cards, and if they are worth investing in?

      Also, do you know if the Sandisk Extreme I mentioned would work?

     Thanks a bunch.

Raw Video / Canon 7D: Best CF card for ML Raw Video (No Crop Mode)
« on: October 22, 2015, 05:24:48 AM »
Hello everyone,

     I am in the search for a 128 gb CF card that will support continuous raw video recording with sound at 1728 x 976 (16:9) at 23.976 fps. I currently use a Lexar 1066x 64 gb, and am able to do 2K recording without a problem. To be honest, I'm not concerned as much with 2K recording, and prefer the 16:9 continuous. I'm looking at a SanDisk 128 GB Extreme Compact Flash Memory Card with: Read Speed up to 120 MB/s, Write Speed up to 85 MB/s, and is UDMA 7 Compliant. Does anyone know if I can pull off 16:9 raw continuous recording with sound with the Canon 7D on this card? I'm trying to figure out if I really need the Lexar 1066x, and am thinking the extra storage on the Sandisk would be nice. The Lexar 64 gb is priced at $80.99 and the Sandisk 128 gb is $119 (on B&H). Thanks.

« on: August 09, 2015, 04:26:21 AM »
Hey Andy600,

     Thank you so much! This worked, and I am so relieved. When I got the green and clips before, I alway thought they were corrupted and there was no fix. Through the forum I was able to find there was a way to fix, tried for hours, and couldn't figure out the terminal codes. Thanks to you my clip is saved!

     I just have one question. Can you tell me what to enter to fix the black level of the MLV? I tried looking this up, and tried the command code via Terminal with MLV Dump but couldn't figure out how to get it to work. The only reason I ask is if I'm in a situation where I'm running out of space on my computer and need to use ProRes instead of dngs (which I then convert to TIFs = more space).

     Thanks again for all your help, I'm very appreciative and happy my clip (and possible future clips) is saved. I hope all is well with you, and that you are enjoying your summer.

Hey Andy600,

     Thanks for getting back to me. I was able to change the camera profile, but still cannot figure out how to change the BlackLevel to 2048. I have followed the instructions on the forum, but am having serious difficulty. Do you mind posting a screen shot on how I would enter this command? I'm on a Mac. If that isn't possible, can you tell me what to type? I get the error 0 files updated, and tried looking that up and I think maybe I'm entering the code in wrong somehow. I converted these dng files using MLRaw Viewer. I appreciate any input you have. Thanks.

Hey Andy600,

     I tried MLVFS, and had the same results. I'll see if I can try fixing the white level. Do you have numbers I could try entering for white levels? Thanks for getting back to me, much appreciated.

Hey DeafEyeJedi,

     Thanks for getting back to me. The only way I could figure out how to upload a dng onto a site was through DropBox. I think you have to sign in to download, please let me know if that is a problem. I did try messing with the white balance settings, but I don't think that's the issue. The MLV is long, but if you need that file I can upload it through DropBox as well.
