Can ML currently allow this on the EOS R?

Is ML for R mentioned anywhere?

I need to upgrade (and dump) 1.3 and 1.4 and hopefully update stubs for 1.4. Yup, I'm still on 1.2.

Hi, I really only need one single feature from ML for the EOS R, and that's the ability to auto-restart video when it reaches the file size/time limit (30 mins, as I understand it.) Can ML currently allow this on the EOS R? My 5DMkII can do this with ML, and I'd love to upgrade but I need continuous video without having to return to the camera. Multiple files is A-OK. Any insight appreciated!

With an external recorder like the Atoms Ninja V, you can do 10-bit continues recording through the HDMI output port.
My first Canon: FTb QL (Quick Loading), my first digital Canon: 20D 2.0.3
The current one: Canon EOS R

Tried to run some initial tests on the EOS R; unfortunately, this is all we've got:

The error screen looks just like on previous models, which is encouraging. The camera recognized there was a FIR file on the card, for the correct model, otherwise it would have printed "Update file cannot be found". The error message means it could not verify the checksum; Canon might have changed the FIR file format, or maybe also the encryption.

Edit: progress - apparently it doesn't like tiny FIR files, but otherwise it accepts them:

Edit (February 2019): turns out it was just the decryption code locking up with some FIR files.
Encryption changed - we can no longer create FIR files for this camera.

I just bought a Canon R and I hope in the future to install a magic lantern firmware on it, but what wrote A1ex is not very encouraging...Is there still hope or will we never see ML on canon r?

Is it possible to create another way of donations besides bitcoin? It may be to make a separate account for the team that is working on EOS R, it seems to me that this will greatly accelerate the collection of donations. Sorry for my english

I know it’s a faux pas asking annoying questions about ML release features, so firstly; thank you so much to all ML developers. If I ever get the pleasure of using ML on one of my cameras I will certainly donate anything I can.

Does anyone know if ML for EOS R is expected to enable 10bit recording in 1080p over HDMI? I love the look of 10bit in C-log, but I don’t have the hardware for 4K.
