Is it possible to use DualIso in conjunction with the experimental set-up with 45 fps and 1920x1080? How do you go about? How do you set it all up in the camera?

Hello,

i'm new here from france (sorry for my english...)

I'm really interested to install magik lantern on my 5d mark iii but i've got some problems...

I've got the firmware 1.3.5 and i cannot downgrade to 1.3.4 or 1.2.3 (wich i need for ML)

I tried with SD card, i tried with EOS utility 3 but it doesnt work.
Finally i saw on the net that i need EOS utility 2 but impossible to install on my windows or mac computers.... Don't know why...

Who could help me please ?

Sorry if this question seems ignorant, but what is the highest widescreen resolution (16:9, 2:35, 2:39) one can achieve with the crop_rec module in 14-bit lossless, continuous 24fps, while having the LiveView fully functioning during recording?

Just testing my new 5D3 with the 4K / lossless compression Experimental build Jul22.2018

I'm trying to get 45fps as described in the build notes: "1920x1080 @ 45p and 48p (3x3 binning)…Continuous:…1920x1080 @ 45p"

Closest I can get (15ish seconds run) is 1920 x 818 (2.35:1) or 1456 x 820 (16:9) on a Lexar 1066x 128gb. Have tried various combinations of Global draw on/off; Video Previews; Sound off. Nothing seems to hit the stats in the notes.

Could someone suggest some tweaks please?

Many thanks

Are you recording into SD or CF card @timbytheriver?

Hiya! :) Record into CF card. (Lexar 1066x 128gb) I have ML on SD card.

You could test this build:
https://bitbucket.org/Dannephoto/magic-lantern/downloads/crop_rec_4k_mlv_snd_isogain_1x3_presets_2019Feb14.5D3113.zip

version 1.2.3
https://bitbucket.org/Dannephoto/magic-lantern/downloads/crop_rec_4k_mlv_snd_isogain_1x3_presets_2019Feb15.5D3123.zip

It gives 48fps in 1920x1080p. For continuous you do following:
1 - In RAW video keep 14bit lossless
2 - Head over to Crop mode sub menu and change bitdepth to 10bit. (Preview will probably look a bit greenish but files recorded will look good)

Many thanks! :) Does that build include all the other modules from the build Jul22.2018 from the 'Experimental' page?

@Danne

That build was for 1.1.3! I got a message warning me about it as soon as I put it in the camera! :( Is there one for 1.2.3?

@Danne

Not sure I'm setting this up correctly. I'm getting about 8 secs (red box from the start) @ 45fps 1920x1080 (Canon menu 1280x720 50fps PAL)

Am I missing something?

Set to ntsc for 48fps I think.
I think I got contnuous this way. You might have a bad card. You can check your card against benchmark.mo. Just get that module from any other build.

@Danne NTSC/60fps produced lots of code errors and stopped immediately. Set back to PAL.

Are these benchmarks ok?

Do you have a decent cardreader connected with USB 3.x? Use CrystalDiskMark (Windows) or BlackMagic Disk Speed Test (macOS) to verify card speed. Seems a bit slow ...
BTW: Benchmark run writes a BENCHx.PPM file to card's root. You may convert it to PNG to avoid second cam.

Which numbers do you get with plain nightly build in photo mode?

@Walter Schulz Thanks!

Fast card reader/usb 3.0 using Benchmark app gave these results:

Do these look suspect?

Can't see the BENCHx.ppm file anywhere on CF or SD card.

That's a bit slow for a 1066x card. Sequential write should be between 115 and 156 MByte/s with a cardreader supporting UDMA-7. Maybe it's you mac/cardreader combination...
The file you are looking for is named BENCH0.PPM or BENCH1.PPM or Bench2.PPM ...
Run another benchmark with plain nightly build in photo mode and report back.

@ Walter Schulz Thanks for looking that over. I guess I'd better contact the seller (Amazon) for a replacement.

https://www.cameramemoryspeed.com/reviews/cf-cards/lexar-professional-1066x-128gb-cf-card/
 
"The Lexar Professional 1066x 128GB CompactFlash card offers high performance and large capacity. It supports UDMA-7 and it rated at 160MB/s read and 155MB/s write speeds according to Lexar. The large capacity is ideal for video recording, and it carries the Video Performance Guarantee rating of VPG-65, meaning the card will sustain at least 65MB/s continuous write speed."

Is that figure of 65MB/s quoted the one the ML bench test is giving (61MB/s in my case)?.

No .ppm files anywhere to be seen!

Is it to much asked for another benchmark run in photo mode with plain nightly build instead of jumping to conclusions?

@Walter

I don't quite understand "run in photo mode". What's the correct procedure for running the ML benchmark test?

I've been testing the card for some days; in various builds using 45/48fps and am getting nowhere near what others are achieving in record times. I wouldn't say I'm jumping to conclusions…

Your cam has two modes: Photo/stills and movie/video and there is a switch right to the eye-piece with respective symbols. Do not enter liveview in photo mode for this benchmark run.

Is mv720p or mv1080p also affecting benchmark results? If so set it to mv1080p when testing as well.
