Hi all,

Is there a way to get 14bits losseless in one of the branches that support crop mode x3 & MLV sound in HD no need for higher resolution.

It seems that only the 4k Branch gets the lossless choices but this one as no MLV sound available... Am i wrong? Any other way?

Please, ML Team, add NO SOUND to the screen, to modules nightly or experimental, when the sound is not recording.
Lot of problems here, and headphones works even without MLV SOUND.

Last time I've checked (read: 1-2 years ago), the audio meters should disappear when there's no sound recorded (be it in H.264 or mlv_snd). Is this no longer the case?

Headphone output is not currently under ML control.

Yes, its what you say.

But lot of variables, settings, values - people - when filming and it's very common forget activate sound.

There are 2 ways to avoid such troubles:
- A foolproof technical solution
- A checklist either in old-fashioned print with pen or (modern style) using smartphone...

I recommend second approach.

You mean you want NO SOUND burnt into the ML screen while recording? Thought no meters showing would do that trick but maybe not enough.
One thing could be to enable sound to default ON when mlv_snd is set?
Speaking of sound. How is mlv_lite and mlv_snd going? I see there's a branch started and I compiled it a while ago but briefly tests showed errors. Had no time then to dig further. Is there any specific tests I can do? What is working or not with mlv_lite and sound atm?

When MLV is ON, no problem. Bars show the level.
When is OFF, I think is better the legend: NO SOUND.

I don't want to prolong a common sense proposal, and a check list sorry but is not enough today. Excepto if you shoot mountines and cats on the grass.
ML from two years at today was adding lot of menus, and beautifull tools.
People like me - and maybe you -  who today shoot with ML know the dozens of variables in every shoot, bits, pixels size, crop factors, iso, lens, people asking, restarts, cards, backups, freezes... and people like me don't use - we can't afford - have a guy to check the sound, other with focus.

We need the best solution, even, when you know that you can forget one of 77 variables.

Except if you are Karpov o Kasparov ;)

Thank you.

And 4K trolls used to be the problem :P
Now we (not me, but some people) have 4K and text saying "no sound" is the feature request.

Hi Magic Lantern users,
I haven't been updating my ml build for 2 years now..
is there already a way to see the proper and right frame when recording in crop mode?
It sucks that we see the 5x magnification, but actualy its recording in 3x magnification.
Any workaround?

Thanks so much

I would like this too. I deactivate sound for increased speeds on 1x3 mode (vanilla) and have forgotten too many times to reactivate. When on a shoot, there are so many things to consider and would be nice with a clear "No Sound/Audio" in the legend

Under Memory Patches I have Red dot for code FF290F98 - EA3569C0. The description bar at the bottom says "crop_rec: video timers hook" and right under that "0xFF290F98: 0xE51FC15C -> 0xEA3569C0"

What does this mean? Should I be worried. I have to say, everything seems to work really well with this build (Oct 28th fir 123). Been playing around with 3.5k center mode a lot these last two weeks and it has worked so well compared to the beginning of the crop_rec release.

I havent gotten around to update my build to latest. Would that fix this?

Hi, new to crop.

I would like to shoot a cropped image not in RAW, not zoomed in, just regular video at 1920 width. But I want cinemascope aspect ratio with a 1920 width: 1920 x 817

Using some crop settings, can I just capture 1920 x 817?
(I know about crop marks - I'm just wondering if I can actually capture smaller files.)

I'm on a Canon EOS-M

Thank you in advance!
Kim

No - the best we might be able to do, with the current knowledge, would be to blacken the top and bottom bars (or turn them into any other solid color), hopefully reducing file size as well.

Even that is not trivial to implement (one has to find when to overwrite what we call HD buffer, somewhere between image capture and H.264 encoding) and it's likely to have model-specific quirks. Not sure if it's worth the trouble.

Thank you a1ex.
I'm just working off crop marks right now, I didn't know if 'crop recording' provided for actually excluding part of the image. Not critical since non-RAW files aren't that big.
Cheers!

It would be possible add some shortcut key for crop mode?

(Button INFO is enough if it does not work otherwise.)
