Hey Danne,

I've come across this issue recently and it seems to stem from some of the older code which I will be updating for my next release. I will tell you that I have been able to fully convert some Dual ISO MLV's and open the finished product. Perhaps I will post my settings soon so that if people want to emulate they can give it a go.

RAW Dual ISO might be a great idea, I'll try to fit it in for the next update.

Weird bug in Mac: if you select chroma smoothing you then can't deselect chroma smoothing/no smoothing radio buttons.

Hey dub,

not being able to deselect is a side effect of making the buttons auto-exclusive, so for now selecting no smoothing is the same as having nothing selected. Perhaps i should make no smoothing selected by default, but otherwise I haven't thought of any smart workarounds yet.

Hi,

The program won't do anything on my windows 7 64bit when trying to convert MLVs. When I press convert it just says "Your conversion is complete" right away.. and it only made a folder at the output destination.
Is there something I'm missing?

Thanks for any quick help!

this application is very fast and it has everything in itself. amazing application. it would have been much better if it converts to cdng as well.

Planning to add Cinema DNG support?

And why additional options are not available for RAW Conversion?

@Daniel: if you right click on the app and show the package contents then you can see the programs terminal window by going to : Contents/MacOS/MLVMystic
If you do a conversion with this terminal window open then a detailed report of what the program is doing will be print out there.

@Nautilus: I haven't found a method for CDNG yet that I like. I might be swayed to include it if I come across one, but it's not a main focus.
RAW Conversion uses a different algorithm than MLV, so it would take some time to replicate the options for RAW and Mystic is intended as mainly an MLV converter.

hi,

how about a build for the Linux guys?

as its qt, it should be just a matter of getting the linux verisons of the underlying commandline tools, and a qmake foo.pro && make...

Hi guys,

Thanks for this wonderful tool. This is the only one that works properly for me on my 5DMk3 with MLV. I really hope you continue development and it's something i would gladly pay for.

Nevermind the really minimal interface, it fixes the vertical banding that's been driving me nuts for months!

Cheers!

Thanks a lot for your work on this tool! Easing the raw workflow is really one of the most important areas for unleashing the potential of magiclantern.

I'm really on thin ice here, so forgive me if I'm thinking wrong. But my dream for this workflow would be to directly convert MLV into (compressed) CDNG (as @Nautilus mentioned). Reducing the file size, including audio elegantly, and having native file support within premiere would be insane! (and from what Adobe are blogging, they continiously work an enhancing the CDNG support/BlackMagic camera support).

I would gladly donate for such tool, but I also understand this might be impossible..

I gotta say, this is the only tool I've actually gotten WORKING reliably. The UI is a bit clunky, but it reminds me of how easy it was to use RAWMAGIC before MLV.

You sure you read all of the first post on the first page guiding you to the page where you can download this delicious program? ;)
I just checked, it is there, really! After clicking the link in the first post on the first page here in this thread, I was taken to another page and I scrolled a little and I found the option to download for Windows or Mac.

This are only my own needs but I hope it could be usefull.
1. Dialog like "Save as..." where we can set directory for DNG files (not the same as MLV directory). Tried to convert right from my full CF card and got error :)
2. Checkbox like "Create directories for each take/scene/mlv". Sometimes (everytime) I don't need many directories with DNG files. Sometimes I want them all in one directory.
3. Wanna see progress bar while application converting.

And thank you so much for your work!
