How to convert *.MLV to DNG ?
« on: January 24, 2016, 10:03:08 AM »
I've done some researches and had found the raw2dng.exe. But the raw2dng.exe can only convert *.raw files and that MLVFS for Windows can not be download. So can anyone tell me how to make it?

Download from here - look around the middle of the first post; there's downloading instructions for windows. You'll need pfmap and mlvfs.dll. Just follow the instructions:

Be sure to read all the posts there - and there's a lot of windows/MLVFS-stuff here:

Will there's many Convertor you can use, but I would use the latest developed software that up to date.
As I assume you are on Windows right ?

If so then first place to look is  Raw Video Postprocessing that where to need to read the threads
1st: Raw2Cdng The CinemaDNG Discussion (raw2cdng) , older tool but very good just been update as of today/night download link Supports .raw & .mlv

If you have MLV files and only have access to a .raw convertor then you can convert to legacy raw with audio file or 14bit DNG with audio file.
This the tools then , MLV Viewer to view .mlv (and .raw) files on windows (C#) here the download link
Older tutorial I make about MLVViewSharp when mlv first came out with audio and how to extract them ,
It's obsolete now but gets the  message across -->
The last thing I will say is check this thread out , New PC Tools to replace ACR & A.E. with same or better results (Without Resolve)
I started this thread for PC raw video workflows , I wrote about MLVProducer and it will Be the future App that other will judge there apps again. (It's That Good !)
MLVProducer main thread download links   MLVP.test.build2183.AMD and  MLVP.test.build2183.INTEL

that MLVFS for Windows can not be download. So can anyone tell me how to make it?

Windows MLVFS:
ayshih has ported this tool using Pismo File Mount Audit Package:
Install PFMAP
Download mlvfs.dll

Just downloaded it as of today ,  no problems at all
