Appreciate all the work you guys have done for Magic Lantern - really love the DualISO and the new MLP workflow (new to me, that is) !

Just installed MLP and the newest ML beta for 70D two hours ago - and happy to share no glitches so far!

hello Danne - thank you so much.  I am able to get the MLP installed and so far the dualiso DNG files are rendering quite beautifully!

Hello - I downloaded the dualiso_to_DNG service - then selected a folder where the dual-iso CR2s are located, and right click > Services > dualiso_to_DNG.  I checked to ensure that the DCRAW file was copied to the /usr/bin (had to temporarily disable System Integrity Protection to successfully copy dcraw to /usr/bin).

I see the automator wheel on the top spinning for a second, then it disappears.

I opened the folder, and I do see ORIGINALS folder containing the CR2 files.  However, no DNG files were created.

My guess is that this service couldn't  find the cr2hdr file?  Where can I download the cr2hdr (latest) file and where should I put it so this service can properly convert the dual-iso file to DNG? 

OR perhaps this service is already 'retired'.   is there a new service out there that replaces it?

Thank you.

Hey Danne thank you :)

I decide to give MLP a try - am pretty 'skittish' as it seems to be more of a video processor than a stills photo :D

So I have downloaded the MLP zip and uncompressed it - I am looking at the instructions in the Howto file and it says to download quite a few files.  I googled a few - sox, ffmpeg - and found that these are for audio/videos.   If I just need to do stills photos, do I need to download all of them or just a select few?

Perhaps you haven't tried using chroma smoothing (CS_2x2) which helps at the cost of resolution loss (tho mild) ... It becomes more noticeable CS_5x5 afaik!

Hi Jedi where do I install the chroma smoother for OSX ?  Thank you!

Thank you Danne - I downloaded the latest exiftool (10.13) dmg file from Phil Harvey's webpage as you indicated, and installed the pkg.  Thats all I did - and now the Canon_EOS_6D.command is working! Appreciate your input as I've always been.

I will take a look at the MLP - wish there is a video tutorial for using the MLP hehe.

Hi Jedi, I'd like to ask for your tips on how to edit to eliminate (or soften)  those pinkish noise in the shadows for dual-iso images?  Thank you!

Hello guys I am using an older Magic Lantern software for my Canon 70D.  I only have a question about DUAL-ISO images taken with 70D:

I have been able to manipulate regular (non-ML) RAW files with ACR - but it seems like my DUAL-ISO images are typically less sharp than regular images?  Also, I have noticed that there is a slight hint of red/pink noise specifically in the dark areas when I turn up the Shadow dial in ACR.  Is that normal?

Hi Danne, sorry for the late reply - here s the link to the original  Canon_EOS_6D.command.

I tried your suggestion - I duplicated the file and I see "-name" and  changed it to "-iname" in the duplicate copy (not the original)  but I am still getting the same error as before when I tried to control-click /open the file:

xargs: exiftool: No such file or directory
Saving session...
...copying shared history...
...saving history...truncating history files...

[Process completed]

BTW the only change between November 2015 and today is that I was still using Yosemite then and now using El Capitan. 
Thank you!

Raw Video Postprocessing / Canon_EOS_6D.command "refresher"
« on: March 19, 2016, 03:47:54 AM »
HI Danne,

 Back in November 2015 I had issue with the DNGs created with the "folder_ProRes444_lut 12 5"  Service being shown as over-exposed in Adobe Camera Raw. You had provided the explanation that the 6d and 70d DNGs created by the "folder_ProRes444_lut 12 5 " Service are not being rendered correctly by later versions of ACR thus you created the Canon_EOS_6D.command to fix the issue. 

Recently i took some dual iso shots again and I tried to execute the same workflow but when I double-clicked on "Canon_EOS_6D.command" file after the DNGs were created by the ProRes444 service a terminal window appears and spits out the following error messages:

args: exiftool: No such file or directory
Saving session...
...copying shared history...
...saving history...truncating history files...

I had the Canon_EOS_6D.command file copied into the MAIN folder where the DNGs are located.

Am I missing a step ?  Your advice is appreciated.  Sorry for the bother.

Hi Danne,

the Canon_EOS_6D.command works now!   I followed that chmod command to update the permissions to the file and it worked wonders :)   ALL DNG files now open beautifully without over-exposing.


hi dfort,

thank you for the share!  And actually I was able to finally run that Canon_EOS_6D.command!

I am using Photoshop CC 2014 which uses ACR 8.8 - I've read that ACR is now in version 9 and wondering if this 70D dual-iso DNG issue still persists?  Which version of ACR are you using, and are you still getting this problem?

hi Danne, sorry i don't quite follow the instruction you shared.   i did download that eos 6d command but it gave me the "insufficient access" error message.

I believe the intent of this command file is to change the camera model for the converted DNG files from 70D to 6D, and once this command is run I'll reopen the DNG file and see how it looks like?

Anyway, i googled and found some instructions on changing the model using exif -
1. go to Terminal, and navigate to the folder containing the DNG files
2. type 'exiftool -l  <dng file name>' - it shows model = Canon EOS 70D
3. type 'exiftool -MODEL="Canon EOS 6D"  to change the model to 6D
4. type #2  again - this time the camera model is showing Canon EOS 6D

However, when i tried to open the  DNG file in Photoshop - which opens ACR - it still reads it as Canon EOS 70D  :(   
Appreciate your input!

Thank you Danne, I'll take a look at your suggestion - you're the man! :) 

Yes, it was taken with 70D - didnt know until now that the 70D shots in dualiso turn out this bad :(

and yes, Danne - i got your message in my inbox now. thank you!

Thank you Danne - a quick update - it just created a DNG file now for the same CR2 file i sent you- I don't know why its running now but I am glad it did.

When I took the dual iso shots, they look ok, but the processed DNG looks all over-exposed.  Did my CR2 look over-exposed to you after it was processed? 

i will try the folder_ProRes  - where can i get it?

Thank you for your patience, Danne.  Really appreciate it.

Hi Danne, yes it looks the same - except of course for the timestamp (i am in Pacific time) :)  I have posted the screenshot in my google drive link for your reference.

not sure how to post the screenshot on the forum posting :(

Hello Danne - here is one of the CR2 files -

Thank you so much!

P.S.  Ooops forgot to mention the file name - its the IMG_9986.CR2 file (city hall pic).

Hello Danne - i copied the cr2hdr-r to the Application folder, and ran it from within the Application folder :( 

i just re-downloaded it - but its still showing the same behavior. 

Maybe I should have run the uninstall.command from the previous cr2hdr-r version (already removed it)   before installing this new one?

Hi Danne, I am still on Yosemite.

i am wondering that maybe because there's "way to many versions" of cr2hdr-r that i downloaded and installed over past few months may have messed something up?

Oh btw I forgot to mention that when I ran the cr2hdr-r and pointed it to the folder with my CR2 (there are only two CR2 files) - it just moved one CR2 , and i had to run cr2hdr-r one more time for it to move the 2nd CR2 to the ORIGINAL folder.

Hello forum,

Yesterday I took a few DUAL-ISO shots and was trying to run cr2hdr-r to convert the dualiso files to DNG, but nothing happened.  its been months since I tried to convert Dual ISO raw images so I decided to go with the latest cr2hdr-r version (cr2hdr_12_3_align) and downloaded it.

Once downloaded, I first ran the install_uninstall.command  (I assume - and hope - that this command would remove the contents installed by the old cr2hdr-r versions?) - as expected it prompted for my password and I entered it, and the command ended with [Process completed].

Then i created a folder called "ML NOV 15" - and ran the - it proceeded to create those folders (HDR, PRORES, ORIGINAL) etc under the new folder.   I copied the DUAL ISO raw images into the  "ML NOV 2015" folder.     Then ran cr2hdr-r again.   It only moves  the CR2 files into the ORIGINAL folder - I didn't see DNGs created.

I also saw your DUALISO_TO_DNG app (which seems to be an easier app to use) - followed the steps from youtube ...   i created a new folder "DUAL ISO CR2" - right click on services and selected "dualiso_to_DNG".  It created   a "commands_list.txt" file and a new "ORIGINAL" folder, copied the CR2 files to the "ORIGINAL" folder and... there is no DNG file in sight :(    i tried to reboot my machine and re-do the steps - still no dice :(

Did i miss anything?  Your inputs are appreciated.

Camera-specific Development / Canon 70D DUAL ISO
« on: May 02, 2015, 09:40:56 AM »
Just wanted to share my DUAL ISO experimentation with my 70D -  thank you to the Magic Lantern developers who are working hard to port ML to 70D!  Very happy playing around with the DUAL ISO  :)

F/2.2  @ 0.5 seconds  (taken with 50mm 1.4 lens); DUAL ISO = 200/3200

F/11  @  2 seconds (50mm 1.4 lens);  DUAL ISO = 200/1600 (toned down the ISO)

I'll try to google how to display my image directly on this page instead of just providing a link..

BTW my ML is not even the latest one - it is from the March Alpha4B build :)  I bet the newer builds must be even more awesome :)

I agree with Jedi - Mac is sooo much better  (though I hate that Apple took away the option to increase memory RAM for the current iMACs - though I think the default 8GB RAM + faster processors should be enough for your work - I have a late-2011 iMac 21" and was lucky to be able to increase the RAM from 4GB to 12 GB).

Hi Danne, just wanted to thank you again for your clarification re: cr2hdr-r.   I noticed that  the time varies for cr2hdr-r to convert CR2 to DNG- sometimes it is fast, sometimes I had to wait for a few minutes - but it does eventually convert the files.  :)

Hi Danne,

I have a question as to when the converts CR2 to DNG files (still images, not movies).

I was finally able to test some dual-iso images this weekend.  Two weeks ago when I initially installed ML I was able to create a few dual iso CR2 images, put them into a folder, then I ran and pointed it to the new folder, then almost immediately the creates three sub-folders (PRORES, ORIGINAL, and HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV  folders) inside my folder ****plus*** I saw that the CR2 files were also converted to DNG.    However, today, I tried the same steps with my new set of DUAL ISO CR2 images (putting them into another new folder,  and run the against this new folder I created today).   The PRORES, ORIGINAL and HDR_RAW_MLV_MOV subfolders were created as expected, but the CR2 images were not converted.  Could you advise me as to what I may be doing wrong? I know that when the CR2s are being converted to DNG, the CR2 files are immediately moved to the ORIGINAL folder.   I checked the ORIGINAL folder just now and it is understandably empty (since there was no DNG conversion that happened).

Your input is much appreciated!

just a quick update - about a few minutes after I posted this - I saw the DNG files were created.  It seems like if there is a delayed reaction of
