Insert card into cardreader. Delete ML directory and Autoexec.bin (if there, of course). Copy extracted nightly build files to card. Retry and report.

Still looking for MY workflow and finally getting around to having some ducks in a row -- Here's what I have:

5D 2 with SanDisk 64 GB Extreme Pro - 160 MB/s
MacBook Pro (2011) with an AMD Radeon HD 6750M 1024 MB
Mavericks
Full suite of Adobe CC including Ae and Pr
Not too sure if I want to go the Black Magic route (or if I need to) for conversion. When I look at their site it says I need:

"CUDA Driver version 6.5.18
NVIDIA Driver version – As required by your GPU
RED Rocket-X Driver 2.1.19.0 and Firmware 1.3.19.7 or later
RED Rocket Driver 1.4.36.0 and Firmware 1.1.17.3 or later"

Seriously?
Don't need the RED stuff, right? and the NIVIDA with latest CUDA...  ???  ...since I have the AMD Radeon don't think that's accurate...

What is there besides DaVinci Resolve that would give me good results?   ... I'm still every bit the Noob. 

Thanks for any replies.

Hi,
My workflow is the following

1. film on SanDisk 64 GB Extreme Pro - 160 MB/s (two of them - swap every now and then)
2. transfer MLVs to computer put in same folder (for easy proxy creation 3b)
3. view the good takes with MLRawViewer (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=9560.0;topicseen) and tag it (i use finder's color labels for this)
      - MLRawViewer is a great viewer that runs in realtime without any conversion on my macbook air.
(3b optional). Create proxies (compressed versions of every file to be used for editing - not needed if project has few clips and is short.) This can be done from within the MLRawViewer by pressing Q and then X (or press export, chose the mov-file, not dngs)- Will create one *.mov file for each mlv-sequence in the folder. After you are done, move the mov files to new folder "proxy" outside of the mlv-dir.

4 run MLVFS (http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=13152.0;topicseen)
      - MLVFS is a virtual filesystem that virtually creates DNGs from your MLV-files without conversion. It also does not take up any extra disk (!), only downside is that dngs might be slow playback in premiere or After effects (thats why I use step 3b)

5. Start Premiere/Davinci or AfterEffects and just add the clips from the virtual folder created in 4. If you created proxies (3b) cut the project with proxies and when done, replace footage with the virtually created DNGs.

6. Grade everything with speedgrade or After effects


(edit)
If it is a really short project like just a couple of clips, then you can skip step 3.

I put magic lantern on my 5Dm2 and it worked, until I turned it off, and tried to turn it on again. My camera was completely dead. I had a shoot the next day so I stayed up all night trying to find a solution. I changed the card and pulled the battery, then retried. Ahhh, thank god! But now, my 16G card is useless and I cannot reformat it because my camera is a brick with it in. Any solutions? Much appreciated!

Reformat it in a PC or Mac

Hi how is it possible to review the ML histogram of previous made raw photos?
I only see the ML histogram of the just made photo, the previous are shown in Canon histogram only, which is based on a jpg, isn't it?

only RAW stills, 5d2, ML: 2015jan15.5d2212

No, not currently.  There is a thread about in the feature request section IIRC.

Thank you! Last question i promise! Do you think it's worth it to buy 5Dmark2 or buy 7D , is the improvement in raw really noticeable?

The maximum D.R. I have seen on My 5D2 is 11.0 Stops , as per "MLVBrowseSharp" info.

Do you think it's worth it to buy 5Dmark2 or buy 7D , is the improvement in raw really noticeable?

I think 5D2 is far superior to the 7D & is much more stable, I have been using my 5D2  :D on Magic Lantern Raw video
for the last year without any problems with Audio & HDMI support on a regular basis.
And of course the 5D3 is superior to the 5D2 , it all depends on your needs & budget level.

Thanks. My budget is kinda limited and my dilemma was between bmpcc ,7d and 5d mark ii.But with Bmpcc i will have to invest at least 1000$ to make it alright for my needs (speedbooster,batteries and cards)

Do you guys find the SanDisk 64 GB Extreme Pro much faster than the Komputer Bay 64 GB 1000x ?

I'm getting about 25 secs max, 1856 x 1044 PAL 25fps with Komputer Bay 64 GB on my 5D2 with Latest Nightly Build ...

Hi,
I always have a problem with the Nightly version of Magic Lantern. When I am recording a video, I always get "broken" frames after a random of time. Sometimes very often, sometimes luckly not...
It always appears as a brighter frame than the others.
This problem never occurs with the stable 2.3 release. It already happened with the nightly ~1 year ago. Now I came back, to find out that it still appears. This makes the Nightly for me still unusable :( But maybe I am doing something wrong myself?
To see what I am talking about, I uploaded a short video here (frame number 46):
https://www.dropbox.com/s/mtokcn1vpql8rdi/magiclantern.mp4?dl=1

I used a Canon 5D Mark II, FW 2.1.2 and Nightly from 28th january with SanDisk Extreme 60 MB/s UDMA 32 GB.
Here are my custom settings:


Thank you very much for any help!

In which mode are your recording? H.264/MLV/RAW?
Which resolution/frame rate is set?

Hi, before i saw a message how to install ML on card and on camera.  I remember something like put in M- mode, and use full  battery, but can't find this info no more.
Did install method change?
Is it possible to put ML on the cf card when the camera is connected to an laptop? Instead of using a card reader?

Are you able to test with 2.3 "stable"? Just delete ML nightly folder and Autoexec.bin and copy extracted "stable" contents to card.

With 5d2 latest build (and on in the future) do it is benefic to upgrade from 1000x CF to 1066x (and over) for more recordable raw video frames or do it worth not the expense? Do someone have comparations at hand? Many thanks!
If you think it's impossible, you have lost beforehand

Yes. I record videos for over a year with the stable build and never have that "blinking" frames in videos. Just very often that annoying known microphone bug the first second and when I use the ML GUI in Live View the video can be hanging for 3 frames so I always use the standard Canon GUI.
The hanging frames also happened in a test video yesterday with latest Nightly, but much more annoying are the blinking frame...
Are there different hardware models who are unable for a good ML result?

Find a way to reproduce and upload a video showing the issue. I'm not sure what to look for.
