Extreme Magenta Colour Cast
« on: March 27, 2014, 02:43:05 PM »

I just installed Magic Lantern (nightly build) on a 5D mk II for shooting RAW
Experimenting with and I'm a little frustrated trying to get decent colours
using davinci resolve 10.

For some reason, I always get extreme magenta tinted .dng when converting the .mlv files with MLVMystic.
BTW: It seems that the only software that handles .mvl files is MLVMystic. RAW Magic doesn't recognise any MLV file.

I can try to correct them in Resolve, but it's difficult given so a bad starting point.

Here is an example:

Try a nightly from a last week. I think there have been some changes to default Black Levels in the last few days that will cause this and MLVMystic probably needs updating because of it.
