5DIII corrupted files?
« on: October 16, 2014, 03:11:42 PM »
Hi,
I used ML with the "stable" version for 5D3 for over one year. I also used MLRawViewer since 1.1.3. Before vacation I updated ML to the nightly build, check for recording and on the display. Everything fine and I started. Unfortunately MLRawViewer is not able to create a MOV from the RAWs! Not the 1.3.0 or any other older version I used before. Has the format changed or what can I do to recover my RAW files? On the display in the camera I can see the movie picture by picture. But the MOV resulting from export is always black (but with sound).
Any hint?
Thanks in advance
Dirk

Sounds like an issue with MLRawViewer's mov export. Do the files play correctly in MLRawViewer? Do they convert correctly to DNG? Do they convert correctly with other conversion tools? If so, then your files are not corrupt, there's just some kind of bug in MLRawViewer mov export.

There is a bug in MlRawViewer when exporting RAW files to MOV that have missing frames. The mlrawviewer.log file (in the $HOME/.mlrawviewer directory) might indicate if you are hitting this bug.

It will be fixed in 1.3.3

 :D Hey, that's good news. So files will be put aside for new version of MLRawVierwer. Hope it will come soon, because we want to finish our family video of the last vacation.

A hint: There should be an option for skipped frames:

- ignore it (MOV will be shorter, sound has to be cut for 1/25s or so too)
- fill it with next frame (simply copy next frame for every missing frame)
