New Magic Lantern Raw Postprocessing Tool
« on: May 18, 2014, 07:23:03 AM »
I was doing some research on the FFmpeg with ML raw support and I come upon a new Tool for converting Image Sequences or videos
Called "ClipToolz" It's a paid pc app, and to my Surprise it supports Magic Lantern Raw ! :o

Quote
ClipToolz RAW will process cinemaDNG video files as well as .RW2 and .CR2

Quote
ClipToolz RAW provides a RAW File Extractor function for extracting .dng RAW files from Magic Lantern .RAW format.

DEBAYER ALGORITHM
There are excellent programs available for working with RAW images. Adobe ACR and BlackMagic Design's
DaVinci Resolve are both top-notch applications that provide a wealth of specialized functions designed expressly
for working with RAW. RAW Therapee is also a great app for working with RAW. ClipToolz RAW does however
provide an alternative in utilizing the dcraw Adaptive Homogeneity-Directed (AHD) interpolation algorithm.
This algorithm performs considerably better with some images from Magic Lantern RAW and BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera
where color artifacts appear.

I got this too, the fix is apparently to set the maxram limit lower but I haven't tried it yet.

To above, why has everyone stopped talking about this.

Downloaded this now and it seems to be working pretty well. I'm interested in dealing with h.265 and proress 444 files on a Windows 8.1 machine, after dealing with huge raw files . This program seems to be working well so far. Anyone else have experiences with Cliptoolz?

Apologies for the bump, but this seems like an important program.
