This should simplify things enormously... too bad 60D is only 960 res ::)

Thank you , nice tool.

Noticed:
1. DNG come out without wb info, tint and temapture opens at acr to left.
2. i had to set fps to each clip.
3. resolution is not recognize well, all vids looks like 2080x1038 - source was 1920x850

i used 5d3 1.2.3, osx mavericks.

Is there a chance to have an cdng export also?

mlviewer opens and export well.

Cheers
David

Thanks,
resolution etc. seem to be bugs in mlv_dump, which Son of Batch MLV uses. Will look into it.

Try turning off "Fix Black Level" in MLV Module in Camera. That fixed the tint stuff for me.

Yes! Son of Batch was my preferred raw converter, great to see it out for MLV!

Thanks for that, Kind Sir :)

Son of Batch was my favourite RAW program. Will test it on MLVs as soon as possible.

You have made an INCREDIBLE job with the previous version - the HalfRes workflow is perfect for me!

Fantastic to see Son of Batch now on MLV.

Quick point though, could we get a way of going back up to the target folder?  If you click on the wrong folder you have to quit the program to go back.  I may well be wrong.. please do tell me if I am.

Wonderfull work!
- Only works with MLV
- Audio doesn´t fit into the length of the video - in DAVINCI 11
- When you download the app it works, but when you translate in Applications folder, say it´s an error - Mavericks 10.9.3
- Cosmetic issue in the first windows say 2080 x 1318 and I did shots 1920-1080.

Can we have the old one and the new one in one software? - RAW and MLV?

Thanks!

First.. thank you for making this..

On my first try, the folder navigation thing is a bit wonky...

So I exported 4 MLV files


and this is what I got:


I unchecked .DNG [which is what I did first time] and instead I get folders of .dn files [?] but no ProRes Quicktime movies.

Would be nice if you could make it so we can select multiple files from multiple directories.. and change directories if necessary before we start exporting.
What might I be doing incorrectly with export? Do I need to install some other secret stuff?

MlRawViewer may work one at time but I can use it to export .movs at least..

I think this soft is not continuing. Try MLViewer 1.2.3 :(

So it seems. Is there a nice way to get MLV Raw Viewer to batch? When it opens single clips I shot yesterday with MLV Raw Viewer, they are only exporting 10-20% of the clip duration whereas Son of Batch does the whole thing [but, creates a lot more mess]

Read almost every comment. Somehow I'm missing how to batch process clips with the same setting. Can you point me to the post?

I guess you didn't read the very first one then:
Quote
• C - Export all files in the current directory using the current settings

And if you have any more questions about that program, you should probably post in that thread, not here.

Excuse me, does anybody still have the Son of Batch MLV? I've lost the install file and now the link is dead :(

Don't let that program die - some people loved that workflow :)
