Just shot a music video on ML-RAW (not MLV)
Canon 5D3 1.2.3
ML build March 17th
Converted with RAWmagic lite
I use an apple Imac

I am not a computer genius or even know anything about coding. Can someone be kind enough and take the time to give me a step by step tut on how to save these files pls



When i view the converted dng file, it shows up as this-




But when i open up in Resolve, ACR of LR it shows up as this-



Any advise as to how i can recover this footage?

Last weekend I recorded ~150 mlv files using latest ML for 5D3 1.2.3. No problems at all.

You mind telling which particular build you use

Midphase, great news!
Do you know a guide for use ACR in a professional mode?
I was checking youtube and only find guides for photos, but i think its not the same because in video some things like blacks are very different.
If not, should be a very good idea to create a video - I have to learn, of course.

Run the installation process (firmware update) from "bleeding edge" nightly and do as advised on the screen: Wait for 30 seconds timeout and bootflag is gone.
And no, you won't be able to use Magic Lantern at all.

Thanks dude

Silly question 8)
Can someone please tell me how to get rid of bootflag. And when i get rid of bootflag, can i still shoot RAW videos?

"At the moment am using the August 2nd build (5D3 and imac, Rawmagic, premiere pro cs6)" - Please get yourself a newer version. So much has changed in the past...oh...7 months...that there is absolutely no reason to use such an old build.

"Will this workflow work for mac users?" - Not quite yet. CDNG files exported from RAWMagic are currently not quite cool in Premiere Pro (they have a pink cast). MLRawViewer does a bit better, but not perfect. It's coming, but not quite yet.

"Which is the latest working build?" - The one that comes out today!

"Will RAWmagic work?" - RAWMagic works with .raw and not currently .mlv. CDNG will need to be converted to ProRes first before you edit, and the quickest way to do so is to use Resolve.

"Will sound be recorded in the same CF cards?" - Sound is only supported with .mlv recording. Yes, it will be recorded on the same card that you tell it to.

Thanks a lot dude, very helpful  ;)

Sorry for all this questions, is just that when you ask questions here, it seem to anger people and they just say "check the forum" without assisting by implementing direct link (and we all know things are littered all over the forum) .

Just currently finished working on a shot film were i was the dop (for a friend)
I shot on the 5D3 with ML RAW using two Kumputerbay cards 64gb 1000x (aspect ratio was 1920 x 818) 25p.

Am 100% totally new to Davinci resolve, but viewing these shots in resolve and just experimenting with some grades is totally mind blowing :D
Wow, being able to manipulate colors without degrading the footages is just wow :D

Just a quick mess about with no LUT


Before grading

@ultimatemale, hey... what was your shutter about? 1/120th or even 1/240th?
and one more, do you get continuous at 60fps @ that res?

My shutter speed varied depending on the lighting available at the time. sometimes was as high as 1/1000 (because i had the intention of using twixtor)

At 60fps i was only able to get about 10sec
50fps would have given me continuous.

Can someone pls upload the link to the latest working build for 5D3 as the last one i can see is August 21st

Apart from the aliasing/moire they both look sharp judging by YOUR test. The only way to judge which has a better image quality was if you had shot the same thing side by side (although i am well aware the 5D3 has a better image quality). You can't shoot people with one camera and shoot trees with the other and decide to make a judgement based on that  :D

This is a good example of 5D3+ML+Resolve

Some ppl may think its a little too sharp but i like it just the way it is.

The video convinced me to start practicing resolve :)

There is this tutorial series on Resolve:

http://ae.tutsplus.com/sessions/introduction-to-davinci-resolve-fundamentals/?search_index=1

The guy is a bit hard to understand, and it doesn't have the slick feel of some of the better tutorials, but it's a good way to get going with Resolve. It will teach you the basics in no time.

Thanks, been watching the videos since i found them few days ago.

Hehe...I agree and that's the conclusion I arrived at after doing my non-scientific test:

https://vimeo.com/72566458

The Alexa still has a slight edge due to the incredible way it rolls off highlights in a very natural way, but the two can intercut quite nicely together and I doubt anyone would be able to tell.

I remember seeing your video and i was amazed by the quality. If you had only used the indoor shots, i doubt most people would know which was which. Of course the Alexa has better image quality over the 5D3, but its just so tiny now that it makes me love my £2000 5D3 even more now.
As soon as i learn Davinci Resolve, then game over, i'll rule the world with my 5D3 Bwahahahahaha ;D ;D ;D

I agree completely, for me it would be: 5D3+vintage or PL Lenses+ML+Resolve= True Film-Like Look


Here a very detailed workflow tutorial. For editing in Premiere, FCP X or any editing software that handles .XML:




Yep, this is one of the videos that i learn the round trip workflow from. After watching well put together videos like these for a while, you realize that its really not that hard to to use resolve for color correction and exporting to an editable format. Color grading is whats hard.
I really give these guys props for coming up with such wonderful tutorials

Even though i like the quality i get from LR, i have started learning Davinci Resolve 10 lite over the last few weeks as its a much better and faster workflow imo.
Programs not easy to use but with practice, i'll get there soon ;)

Most people might not want to hear this, but 5D3+ML+Resolve = Arri Alexa quality type footage  :P

While clearly the raw wins, I would love for once someone to post a video that actually had GRADED H264 footage.  Sharpened in post (as everyone recommends anyway) with some shadow/highlight recovery, contrast, etc. added back in.  For low contrast scenes there's not much of a difference.
Of course every time I shoot H264 I wish I had shot it raw instead.  :)
Most of the RAW images in this video wasn't graded (Non where sharpened). The best way to judge both formats would be to view them at at their purest form.
Am really good at using lightroom as i come from a photography background, so if i decide to grade the Raw footage's with lightroom and grade h.264 with colorista, i can assure you that the Raw footages will beat the h.264 by far which wouldn't be a good way to judge both formats.
I was able to get the subway scenes to look like that by just sliding the "temp & tint", imaging what else could be achieved with the other sliders (options not available to h.264).
But like i stated, its not a scientific test. ;)

Congratulations for the video. I liked a lot the subway shots!

-What release of ML did you use?
-What duration did you get in the shots without dropping frames?
-How did you avoid the "bobling effect" or rolling shutter in the handheld shots.


Best regards,

-It was the August 2nd build
-No drop frame at all (could have shot continuously till my card filled up)
-There where no handheld shots, was all shot on a tripod

Brilliant video. A couple really impressive shots. If only I weren't a student and could afford a 5D3!
I was 100% comfortable with my 5D2, but as soon as i found out about ML RAW, and 5D3 being the only camera that can handle 1080p RAW, i just had to get it over the c100

The scene at 0:38 has really nice colors. Also the elevator scene is impressive.
I have a question: You say you export to ProRes 4:2:2. Now first thing is I learn for the first time After Effects can do this so I am confused if I did mistakes in the past. Up to now I cut with Uncompressed AVI exported from After Effects. Is that worse compared to ProRes or what am I missing here?

If am totally honest, i myself don't really no much about these formats. I use ProRes422HQ simply because i read online its almost a loss-less format and its what most people editing on a Mac computer use. If i had intended on doing some more grading in Premiere Pro, i would have been able to without loosing image quality.

Hopefully someone else who know more aboout these could help shed some light on the issue
