Mlvfs Mac question
« on: January 11, 2019, 09:41:48 PM »
Hi I I had a question.
Hope anyone can help

I use mlvfs on my mac
I mounts s disk image folder with all my videos in raw image sequence
Do I need to copy the picture to an other folder the eject the disk image
Or can I just use my editing program to read the raw files in the disk image

Before mlvfs it's about 50% smaller due to compression
Once I use mlvfs on the folder I see all my full rez raw photos
I don't see why I can't with with them right from the folder

Reason I am asking this is if I have 50gb of mlv files
I use mllvfs on the folder
And if I want to copy them from the mlv folder to a normal folder
It takes about 45min mit copy across
I can allow my video editor to reference the images then as a normal folder

It's just a pain to wait the 45min
I am happy to wait I guess but I'm always tryign to find a faster workflow

I hope I explained it ok for anyone who reads this.

PS I have crash logs on my 5dmk3
Who can I give them to?

I use
5d mark 3
Mac Mojave 15inch quad core 2014
Davinchi resolve 15.2

Resolve can directly access the virtual dng folders and work with that. You don't need to copy these files somewhere else, but you could (if you have some reason).

Ok I didn't know that.
So I'll use it then it so much quicker not having to copy the content to an other folder

Thansk for the reply
