Just tried this on my 600d and was amazed how easy it was to get all this working, weathers terrible here today i was hoping to hit the city and bring you a 4k timelapse of york.

two things, why is the shutter limited to 0.8'', i was having wet dreams of full res star trails....

and how do you manage with the cards filling so fast, like 500 shots max in a 16gb card, can we get full res that isnt full res... (yes i know thats a Doh! statement lol)

Thanks for the work on this guys, I had been looking at changing my camera but having this to play with i think i'll be hanging on to it a while longer, which makes life easier, as the OH wont kill me in my sleep for spending more money....

Lez, and thanks again, loving having something new to play with.

(if anyone see my old login details wandering around looking lost, tell them where i am, i had to rejoin to get in and thankyou all!)

Right at the end you can see my test silent-picture. But I'm sure once you expert people start you will get much better results than me.

That's the way it works: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=12523.msg120758#msg120758

edit: It works sometimes if I tap the screen each time but still not entirely consistent.
Can you try to change C.FnIV mode say from 1 to 3 or the other way around after you power on  and then (after first selecting focus point) try a silent pic?

On my M1 it works like this: https://mega.co.nz/#!oABHHIyb!VNOQugQF-xqmH957FFU4MTHPjZfv2nSugY03P4JFAEU

You are not the only one....

For some reason the 500,550 and 600 crash at shutterspeeds slower than 0,8"

I tried a day/night - timelapse 2 days ago with an old built from mk1174... well it works, but crashed several times before it run successfully.

And another problem i faced with this outdated build was i couldn't extract all frames from the MLV + .M00 to .M99 files.
(Must have been 130 (MLV with 4 GB) +99 frames but i only got 150)

Right now i'm investigating on how to extract all files.
So in the end i spent more time troubleshooting than taking pictures  ;D

For now i guess it's best to accept the limitation.

How do you guys process the MLV file? Which programs do you use?

None of the programs I've used can convert it to DNG. They either crash or dont do anything.

try MLVMystic, you can find it on the forum. (MLRawViewer also able to do that, but for me it crashed several times at large amount of dngs)

Sorry, I am on Windows.


I'd like to convert the MLV to C/DNG to then process it in AE.

- Describe in detail what you are doing
or
- Take a video/screen capture of said action
- Or let's make a date via TeamViewer.

I downloaded mlv2dng, though slow and no settings to apply, I managed to convert the entire MLV file.

But I don't find the resolution overly impressive. Also a weird resolution it is, at 5936x3950, my normal CR2 are 5760x3840. So I end up with a fat black border on the top and left side. Is the resolution normal for FRSP ?

Might be my noobiness with FRSP, but I really don't find the pictures sharp, the pixels seem very crammed..

If you want, I could upload DNG for you to see or just give me plain answers here.

How long were your exposures and have you used a tripod?

Yes tripod.

2 sec interval. Shutter was right under 2 secs

But is the resolution normal? The black borders and all that?

Using MLV files made from FRSP Timelapse works well with latest MLRawViewer (just be sure to change the FPS settings 'Shift + F') to get the look/feel you want.

when you say latest MLrawViewer version? Which one is that?

I am using 1.3.3 and it crashes after a few frames of playing and even fewer of conversion.

@Licaon_Kter:

My apologies for letting this one slip under me. Yes, you were, in fact, correct regarding ExpSim being DISABLED in the ML menu (thus causing the inconsistent back focus) so once I enabled that ON.

Back focus button seems to work OK.

Thanks for double checking!

*cheers*

Now, this is a bug then?

is it possible to shoot Dual ISO images with FRSP currently? (and in intervalometer mode).

Firstly, well done to Alex and everyone else involved in developing/testing FRSP.

I have been using/testing it over the last few days capturing stills in DNG as well as MLV format. I have also taken a number of FRSP timelapse captures in MLV format.

From a capture perspective, all appears to be working correctly. I can review the DNG's and MLV files within the camera.

Unfortunately, after transferring the files to my PC I am not able to process the MLV files. Methods tried are:
mlrawviewer v1.4.3:
      Can navigate to the file location but it stops responding and hangs when trying to open the file.
      Individual files contain from 4, 16, 20, 110 and 150 frames.

raw2cdng v1.7.1
      For MLV files containing 4 frames it completes the extraction process but only extracts 3 of the 4 frames.
      For MLV files containing more than 4 frames, the file loads into the batch queue correctly and it can previewed.
      however when trying to convert, the application crashes with the following windows error:

@Ottoga

I am also pondering the same problem with the MLV files.

On a windows machine I am unable to use any of the newer post processing tools to extract the DNG's and MLRV 1.4.3 can't play more than a few frames before crashing.

I managed to convert a 380 frame timelapse with mlv2dng, though the quality seems fishy too me.. (possible that I captured it wrong)

MLV2DNG: http://magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7802.0

Can you give it a try with mlv2dng and tell me either here or by PM how you find the quality and what resolution do you have compared to your normal CR2 Full Res pictures.

i am on the road at the moment.
but with mlv_dump you can patch the FPS field and make it look like a normal MLV.
dont know the option, i think it was -F <fps>
