I've applied "Fix Focus Dots" (method 2), "Fix Bad Pixels" (Force, Agressive, 3), and, what's most important, "Chroma Smooth" to 3x3. All the focus and the bad pixels had completely gone, and the clarity is not affected.
Chroma smooth is no real solution, because you kill all detail with it. Fixing focus dots must work without this.

Yes, it should work, but it doesn't work.

All I've got with it - here it is.

By the way, I'm on OS X 10.10.

It would be more interesting to get a short MLV file for analysis. But if focus pixel fix does not work, I am very sure you did not install the correct pixel map. Have you installed them? What tells the MLVApp dialog "Show Installed Focus Pixel Maps" after loading your MLV clip (screenshot?)?

Do I have to make new focus pixel map each time I make new shoot?

The dialog shows this: https://yadi.sk/i/Z8dBd3L7Btbr5A

This dialog shows, that you have NOT installed any 100D focus pixel map. Without focus pixel map MLVApp can't remove your foxus pixels. This is as expected. So please install the maps and try again. You don't have to make it, just download and install it. You don't need it new for each shoot. The maps are always the same, when using the same ML build.

OK, I've downloaded, unzipped and installed it, this was simple. Finally it works, without any chroma smooth. Sorry for my fault.

By the way, there is some noise that occurs when I'm scrolling down the highlights to -25 or exposure to, say, -1, all in MLVApp. Perhaps that is because the video was overexposed during shooting? https://yadi.sk/i/E-dY9-jV9mL8xA Note that pink noise in the sky above the bridge.

This is the link to raw file of the simple test. Please, don't shoot at me. This is pre- removing focus pixels. https://yadi.sk/d/xwuqhFnM6_BxhQ

Slightly reduce the RAW White Level (-50..-200) and activate Highlight Reconstruction.

Thank you so much. This works (so-so), but the video was highly overexposed.

By the way, the 2K (2520x1080p) crop mode is very, VERY buggy. I've switched it on/off countless time. For example: https://yadi.sk/d/29u4j2ki7JoTiw To cop with it (at least, until the update comes), I use to do the next steps:
- switch off the camera,
- take out and in the battery,
- switch the camera on again,
- it says that "camera was not shut down cleanly, skipped module loading", so I'm switching off and on the camera again,
- then I'm switching it to the photo mode (this is important! not to the video mode!),
- go to ML menu, switch the crop mode off,
- set the camera to the video mode and switch the crop mode on to 2K (2520x1080p).

I've also noticed that during work with SD_UHS the SD card warms up quite a lot for 5 minutes. To cool it during shooting, I took off the cover of this bay. It works - at least, for now.

Despite all that, this is a miracle to have a camera that costs $200 with kit lens and is able to shoot 1080p 14 bit uncompressed (=lossless) video.

UPD: now I'm switching off the 2K mode each time I've done with shooting. It takes some time, but it works.

I'm making tests, here is one, if someone is interested. MLV file: https://yadi.sk/d/j5p5YR9YzcrjBQ Session file: https://yadi.sk/d/STclZ0KaFpEQcg  ProRes 444 file: https://yadi.sk/d/5WkNLiHUY5RkUQ Non-crop mode, 1736x936 25p, upscaled in postproduction to 1920x1080. Sorry, I used no tripod here.
