Quote from: hungrygeneraiton on September 06, 2020, 06:45:33 PMI am using the latest 1.2.3 experimental build for 3.5k / compression. When I select record indicator (REC Indicator) and select "remaining time" it is still showing elapsed time I believe. Is there a way to get an estimate on remaining card?

Quote from: wib on January 08, 2021, 11:56:57 AMIt's more complicated than that. It all depends on what resolution, what bit, if raw or h264... with or without sound... all of that use different amount of space. It's not possible to quantify it as in "time".

Quote- The way the software is today is all that the maintainers ever agree to provide you (bugs and all)- The maintainers provide no assurances that the software will ever work for any user or use case (even documented ones)- The maintainers are never liable for any problems caused by any use of the software (including damages that require you to pay for repairs)- You must agree with the above to have any right to use the software

QuoteEverything in open source should be a series of kindnessesTo reiterate, just because open source software is free for you doesn't mean someone else hasn't paid some price on your behalf to get you that code.Since open source is paid for by others in effort and time, that would suggest that there really shouldn't be any expectations on your part from what you get out of an open source project that you choose to use. You could view everything in OSS as a kindness that someone has done for you and others. Putting things into that perspective takes away the feeling of expectation and entitlement. This frames open source participation as someone doing something nice for the community and project, as someone having done a kindness for you.As soon as you start demanding or expecting something from open source you have stopped viewing it as it was intended, and that distortion can be poisonous. When I choose to donate my precious time to open source I do it voluntarily as a nice thing that I enjoy doing. I didn't do it because someone demanded it of me, and the instant I feel that my time is not appropriately appreciated as the gift that it is, I stop enjoying doing open source. And when someone stops enjoying their contributions to open source, they burn out and quit.Taking the altruistic view of open source keeps things grounded and healthy. Viewing open source as a kindness someone else has done for you gives the appropriate perspective that this is something nice and no one has any expectations from it. It's like when I hold the door open for someone. Ultimately I don't expect anything in return (although a "thanks" is always appreciated). And the person passing through the door doesn't expect anything else from me either. But when someone in open source makes demands it's like the person passing through the door criticizing how I held the door open. It's pointless and simply leads to people no longer being willing to hold open doors for others.To reiterate, you should view open source as a series of kind acts people have done altruistically. That means you cannot make any demands or hold any expectations of an open source project. Or as Evan Czaplicki, the creator of Elm, put it, "Remember that people do free work because it is fun, not to get stressed by strangers".
Quote from: Danne on January 08, 2021, 11:56:53 PMEdit: Also consider taking the time to "clean" up all inappropriate info you can find by testing each and every feature systematically. Write down your findings and create a list of changes you would suggest for the community. This would be nice and effective user feedback probably useful for a lot of users. This place is in need of users digging in more actively.
QuoteAnd this extends to bug reports and feature requests. It's a kindness when you report a bug so that I have a chance to try and fix it. But just because you reported a bug doesn't mean I specifically owe you anything. I should try to thank you, but there is no contract here that says I have to address your bug or feature request. My kindness was to provide my time and effort for the open source project up until now, but there's no expectation beyond that of my time and effort. Open source really should be viewed as self-service unless I choose to help further. If something doesn't work for you then you are free to take the code and modify it to meet your needs; that's a key tenet of open source. So the idea that any open source project owes anyone anything is a misunderstanding of what open source fundamentally is.
Quote from: nomadfilm on January 10, 2021, 06:07:21 PMHi All,Very basic question here. I've scoured the forum and I might have just missed it. I'm looking to move from magic lantern nightly 2018 Jul03 build to crop_rec_4K (5D31.1.3). The information that I seem to have found suggests that I simply copy and replace the crop_rec_4K ML folder, autoexec.bin and MLsetup.fir onto the SD card. Is that correct? If anyone could point me in the direction of a post or resource that would explain the process I would be very grateful. Many thanks and apologies for the beginner question.
