General Help Q&A / [resolved] Fps ramp problem 5d3
« on: December 28, 2015, 08:12:32 PM »
Tried fps ramping a couple of times I tried, for example, ramping from 24 to 5fps over 15 seconds shooting 1080 h264, but my recording keeps stopping automatically. What am I doing wrong here?

5d3 1.2.3 running latest nightly before current 12/20 build

General Chat / Re: Auto ETTR - slowest shutter does not work

I don't know much about auto ettr, but I assume with a setting called "slowest shutter" that means whatever value you set will be the lowest auto ettr will set your shutter to achieve proper exposure. So if your shutter isn't being adjusted then you've probably either got enough to light for a faster shutter speed, or other parameters are being adjusted instead of your shutter speed

like I said though, I don't know really anything about auto ettr

im not 100% sure on that. I only know of the issue because I was trying to sync a 30fps image sequence with audio in a 24fps timeline, and things weren't matching up. Things didn't look noticeably slower, and I haven't since tried slowing 30 to 24 to see if the difference just isn't noticeable.

Might be a good idea to take this over to the Adobe forum if you want to know for sure, but I would just change that setting then treat it like normal 30fps footage

Somewhere in premiere's preferences, there's an option for indeterminate media time base. You need to set the desired fps there before you import the image sequence. This option will stay the same between projects so don't forget to set it accordingly before importing image sequences with different frame rates

It's provided in cam on 5dmk3 probably some others too

Nicely done! Did you use dual ISO at all?

Mlvfs adds a correction "default scale tag" to stretched footage. This corrects the footage to normal automaticlly when opening up dng files in adobe camera raw. Try and see if this also works with dng files in final cut pro.  I also added the default scale tag to my workflow in cr2hdr-r so that works too.

I was losing my mind trying to figure out what was happening because I haven't had to stretch my videos!

@deafeyejedi I was literally just about to pull the trigger on those kino flos, but decided to see if I could find them cheaper than B&H (I couldn't) and I ended up finding that they aren't rated as flicker free. I'm assuming you, and the others who recommend these bulbs haven't had any issue with flicker, but why would they state that they aren't flicker free? Any thoughts?

Edit: B&H says they're flicker free  :-X but another place says they are not

I understand that good lights are costly. I'm not looking for "cheap" lights. Just some damn good cfls if they exist. Sure, I don't want to spend $50+ on one bulb, but up to that point (maybe even slightly higher for a tried and tested GREAT CFL bulb) is worth it to me. I really just recently started looking to solve the problem of the green cast, and I'm finding that good lights are hard to find, and a lot of people settle with what is good enough for them and call something a great light. Maybe I'm asking this in the wrong place, but it seems there are a lot of very knowledgable people here in the ml community that could point me in the right direction.

just to simplify and clarify my post, I'm looking for one of two things:
1. Good/best daylight balanced CFL bulbs (color cast more important that light output)
2. A good relatively affordable alternative

Any and all help/advice is greatly appreciated

What I don't want to/ can't do is buy and try different options to find the best one

Anyone got any good sources for great CFL bulbs? The ones I have now give a very green cast. Is this just characteristic of the bulbs? Does anyone have a better alternative in the same price range that isn't led?

Very nice work indeed! This might seem like a silly question, but how did you get on the front of the train...? :-\

I'm really not sure what we are supposed to be seeing here... The first video looks like you're having problems with lens flare, and the second seems to be over exposed. Neither of these things would be caused by ML. What problems specifically should viewers be looking for in these videos?

Niiice! I especially like the changing footstep thing you did. Super clean. The colors are really nice too. Did you do any additional grading aside from the cinelog luts?

Updated my system, and everything is working now. Thanks everyone for your patience and help!

Really beautiful! And nice soundtrack too!
How are the lights not completely blown to hell?? I've never tried to do any sky time lapse, but if there is any light any long exposure I've done at night, it blows up

Not sure I'm doing it right, but I get:

Illegal instruction: 4

[Process completed]

@dmilligan sorry about that. I was half asleep when I wrote that response and had forgotten that I did open the Automator package and find the executable [facepalm] I don't know how to run it from the command line though :\

If you could check that out, that'd be great. I tried older versions of OSXFuse, but didn't have any luck. I didn't think an older mlvfs would make any difference since it's a set of Automator actions. I'm thinking there's something I'm missing with OSXFuse or some deeper issue

@reddeercity nope, I don't get a mounted folder either. Anyone else think I might need to upgrade? I'd like to avoid this if possible

I can't get this to work at all  :-\ @deafeyejedi has been trying to help me troubleshoot the problem, but still no luck. I keep getting safari can't connect to server "localhost". error

As far as I can tell, I've followed all of the correct steps, but I'm afraid I'm missing something

OSX 10.7.5
OSXFuse 2.8.0

Any help would be great

@andy600 thanks for the detailed response. It really helps a lot, and it seems cinelog would be a great addition to any toolset.

@mothaibaphoto In my limited experience, I haven't had any issues using ACR from within AE, but when I first tried shooting raw, I selected and opened all of the individual DNGs in ACR (photoshop/lightroom) and used "select all" to make changes to the entire sequence. This way of working with the DNG sequence caused A TON of flicker, and nastiness so I can say that much. As for the ACR within AE, I'd say it's probably better to trust the many other users, and save yourself the headache

@Andy600 I've only just recently started exploring raw video with magic lantern, but I've done a few tests and been able to get some pretty cool results using only ACR. So far, I haven't introduced any flicker or other weird artifacts using the ACR sliders to adjust the images as I please. I guess where cinelog really interests me so far is color accuracy. I've only recently started learning about using scopes for correcting/grading, and I still don't REALLY understand what's going on there so most of the CC I've done has been by eye, and ends up looking different between displays (I'm assuming this is pretty much unavoidable).

I guess the short answer is that I don't really know what it is I'm looking for. Just looking to explore options, and the "proper" ways to work with these things, I from what I've read, I feel that using Cinelog might be a good way for me to do some hands on learning about a Proper raw/log workflow. I'm far from a professional colorist (I'm sure that goes without saying), but I think I do a pretty damn good job, and haven't really run into a situation in which I can't do something I'm trying to do. This is pretty all over the place, but I hope it sheds at least some light on where I'm coming from.

Also possibly worth noting, I haven't come across any "looks" (lut or otherwise) that I particularly care for, but I figure people use them, so there must be something to it and I'm trying to find the allure I suppose

Current Workflow:
mlRawViewer -> DNG (I understand this will have to change)
Import DNG sequence into AE CS6
Correct/Grade/whatever with ACR

100% honest question. If I don't understand ANY of the technical stuff you've been explaining, would cinelog still be beneficial to me?

Thanks! I looked at the fps override menu a couple of times and decided I shouldn't mess with things I don't know how to use haha

I've missed focus more times than I care to admit, and I can't imagine shooting a wedding alone! Kudos to you man
