With Switch it's possible to convert raw to mlv. Fully automated:

But it doesn‘t work with Windows if I understand correctly.

No, you´d need to borrow a mac for the conversion but then it´s done and ready.

Hello @masc

Can we have Aspect Ratio option in exporting settings ? or as example I shot 1736x976 16:9 MLV video , in exporting settings I adjust resizing to 1920x816 to have in the end 2.35:1 Aspect Ratio but it's not working in that way it compress the height and give 16:9 video needs to be un-stretched to have the correct 16:9 same as 5x3 mode , instead of compressing the height or Binning the pixels vertically; it will be great if it works by cropping the top and bottom parts . .

So can we have it ?

already requestd ths feature by me some months back but no possitive reply so far

Yes im sure for tight shots it's fine. Actually though I really hoped to use the 5d for wides as it's full frame but I see that's not really an option.
I can understand your disappointment, but there is an interesting "anamorphic" full sensor (no crop) mode that you might be interested in trying:
It uses full width, but height is downscaled same way as normal 1080p video. I am very interested to see how detailed it looks if you try it out.

I'm not sure how to enable this option, but Danne knows about it.

EDIT:

I added some sharpness to the 5d and you can see for yourselves... not too bad!

A surprising improvement!

In the process of sorting my old MLVs I found a dangerous function in MLV App.
If you want to convert your uncompressed MLVs to compressed MLV and select the source folder as destination, it will destroy the MLV file you are trying to convert. Maybe there should be a warning or the file will just be named [filename]_1 or something.

I was wondering if you could implement a way to permanently delete the origional mlv file from the session bar.  It would save a lot of time rather than having to navigate back to the sd card folder, finding the clip, and then deleting.

@flostro: Yapp, this is known and true. Will think about howto implement such a warning.

@ngemu: Permanently delete could be implemented... but only without trash. So might also be dangerous, that's why I haven't done that yet.

+1 for deletion routine. An idea. Is it not too hard to maybe flag rejected MLV files? They could be removed to a trash folder if it´s not possible to move directly to trash. It would speed up work by a lot imo.

Maahh... best would indeed be using the recycle bin. For OSX I have a solution (simple as always). For Windows and Linux I'll see what I can do... unfortunately no platform independant solution exists.

Mostly, yes. As I read, unfortunately not always. But thanks! ;) Additionally some delete info file has to be written on Linux. :P

I added a pre-export check, and the user can decide if files will be overwritten or not. Should work for any file type, not only MLV.


Edit: won't work for DNG, TIFF and PNG sequences... but this should not be dangerous in any way...

Any chance to add an Auto button for basic adjustments ?

What means "basic adjustments"? I bet this definition is different for each user. For me it is different for each clip... If you like to use "your basic adjustments", you could export a receipt, and import it to all your clips (via Ctrl+A you have it with just a few clicks).
Default parameters are a basic adjustment as well... :)

I mean for level histogram edges, highlights, shadows.
I dunno what is feasible.

You mean something like the Photohop functions "Auto Color", "Auto Contrast", etc. ?

Thanks, Danne. Works on OSX and Linux for now... Windows has to be done. That means I have some code but don't know yet if it works ;) Good hint with the MAPP file! :)

@Danne: you like to try out? MAPP file is deleted too now. The best is the sound on OSX, when deleting multiple files...  muahaha. :P

Is there any update yet that will give better color accuracy? Today I tested skintones and honestly it's all over the place :( Can't get them to match my Ursa unfortunately. Sure it's possible with a lot of playing but not in a realistic and reproducible scenario.
