Thank you Bilal, you are a wizard! Realtime preview without global draw it's crasy. You gave a big boost with sd overclock and now realtime preview!
Will it be possible to have good ratio for 1×3 mode too? Porting on EOS m should be easy but on 5diii and 5dii more work to do.

How can I test this on the 5DIII ?

I have firmware 1.13 and I can compile ML myself, at least for 5DIII. Is there a repo somewhere where I can download a file, or did you just go with atgd gui ?

Well, all said: is there something implemented already ?

Narrowed down this mother f*cker and fixed it.

Glad you are following this development :D


Thank you Bilal, you are a wizard! Realtime preview without global draw it's crasy. You gave a big boost with sd overclock and now realtime preview!
You're welcome! , Thanks, I thought enhanced sd_uhs and real-time correct preview is the two last thing we could get on DIGIC 5 Canon cameras, a new ML decade has started for newer cameras, I don't think any of main Developers would work on DIGIC 5 cameras again, just a thought . .


Will it be possible to have good ratio for 1×3 mode too? Porting on EOS m should be easy but on 5diii and 5dii more work to do.
For 1x3 mode In theory it's possible, but more knowledge is required, I am working on it, EOS M shares identical registers and values, I sent same preset to @Danne and Confirmed it's working, 5D3 have different set of registers, it might be easy to port if we the effects of registers were the same, I don't have the camera I can't work on it, Sorry . . 5D2 is another story, and might be simpler.

There is nothing for 5D3, Sorry, No one has worked on it yet, I can't work on it too because I don't have the camera.


Anything working on eos m? I think this is what I’ve been dreaming about for like 2 years... it’s real live view in real time right? The choppy preview live view that shows the framing is all we have now. Or real live view with the wrong framing. If this is real live view with correct framing you’ll be the hero of all time:)
Already working on EOS M, no available build yet, It's Real-Time Correct Framing, real-time as Canon Preview, correct Framing as ML Framing, both in one, you are welcome.


This is so exciting! Keep experimenting please!!!!
And it gets more and more exciting :D

RAW data compared to Normal x5 Preview and the new Expanded Preview:



-These three images are dumped from the Camera.
-The new Expanded Preview is in real-time and responsive as normal 1080p.
-Aspect ratio is correct in LiveView for The new Expanded Preview, no need to enable ML Global Draw.
-Framing is correct if you consider there will be data in the Black Bar on the right.
-No overhead or slowness.
-Works on external HDMI monitor too.
-Only working for 700D and *EOS M (*Confirmed by Danne) for now . . unless someone work on other cameras.

-Last limit of this preview is the Black Bar in the right, still working on it.

Releasing soon for testers.

This is Incredible! What you've already achieved is a huge leap from the preview possible with Canon's 5x crop.
2.5K mode will be the real king and the EOS M will reach its perfection after this.
Thanks @theBilalFakhouri

Test Builds are out for 700D, and *EOS M (*Thanks Danne), You will find it on the new thread:
Experimental Real-Time Correct Framing Preview

-Let's keep this thread for development, and move on to the new thread for sharing thoughts and community discussions.

-Thanks all for your words.

Does this liveview resolution change mean you can record 2.5k in h.264 ? What happens when you disable raw video and hit the record button, how does the canon mov file look.
Just curious :D
(Since raw is way too good to go back to h.264 compression  :P )

Are you talking about 2.5k liveview or not? Because Canon mov files always looks like shit  ;D

Compared to raw that is  8)

First we need to patch x5 Mode into mv1080, then apply the new preset, then use YUV Upscaling/Downscaling registers to make YUV resolution as mv1080, after that we should try Hitting the record button and see what H.264 file look like :D

However patching x5 Mode isn't working, we can baypass patching and adjusting YUV res, instead of that we can patch mv1080 to 1:1 by Using ADTG[800C] and CMOS 5, then increasing RAW data, fixing LiveView, Increasing Preview region, Hitting record button, But also fixing LiveView after increasing RAW data in mv1080 isn't working :D

Movie Crop Mode has 720x404 16:9 AR YUV image with black borders in top and bottom, otherwise x5 Mode and mv1080 has 720x480 YUV 3:2 AR, without the black borders, I didn't study MCM yet, this might help us to center the x5 new preview on screen, there is register controls black borders natively from Canon starting from the right and from the bottom, but has no effect in x5 Mode: C0F08554

It works, thank you Bilal. But it's difficult to keep concentration on the screen with the stuck frame bug or the white noise in the bottom.
I've found a little trick to keep the black bar in the bottom screen by pressing menu button untile the black screen appear then quickly toggle to framing mode by pressing focus button.

We can also toggle in photo mode and quickly go back in video mode.

I also notticed that if we reduce resolution, in 2,5k mode, the preview is still the same and then larger than the correct frame. It's better than the otherwise!

@Grognard
Black bars could be added from mlv_lite, using ML Global Draw, it's very easy task and doable, this is still very new stuff, I might add them in the future, glad you liked it :)
