If not tested yet I think the latest changes in mlv_snd together with mlv_lite from g3gg0 should be tested. I think it´s in this branch:
crop_rec_4k_mlv_snd. Not sure what branch is working with 70D or not though but anyhow.

Something I noticed on the video is that you have both mlv_rec and mlv_lite modules loaded. Don't don't that! Turn on as few modules as possible when testing and definitely not two modules that do basically the same thing.

I believe that the latest commit for the 70D is this one on the crop_rec_4k branch.

So, a funny thing happened. While doing some additional testing, the sound recording started working out of nowhere, as it seems. I did have some issues and I did get one Err70 out of all my extra tests and it was the strangest one yet.

Mar07 Build

mlv_lite + mlv_snd + sd_uhs

1832x1024, 14-bit lossless, 16:9
Preview: Realtime
Small hacks: ON
Auto Mirroring: Don't allow
15 min. - Video OK, sound OK, NO ERRORS!
Additionally tested later:
45 min. - Video OK, sound OK, NO ERRORS!
50 min. at ISO200 - Video OK, sound OK, NO ERRORS!
47 min. at ISO400 - Video OK, sound OK, NO ERRORS!

----------------------------
mlv_rec + mlv_snd + sd_uhs

1824x1026, 10bpp, 16:9
Global Draw: Allow
15 min. - Video OK, sound OK, NO ERRORS!
Additionally tested later:
15 min. - Video OK, sound OK, NO ERRORS!

The mlv_snd module was loaded and turned on, but the sound meter bars didn't show up.


Mar14 Build

mlv_rec + mlv_snd

1792x716, 10bpp, 2.50:1
Global Draw: Allow
15 min. -  Video OK, sound OK, but Err70

When I pressed stop at the 15th minute, the recording timer froze, the top display said "Busy" and a few seconds later.. guess what.. Err70! Had to take out my battery this time. The MLV file had sound, though.

mlv_lite + mlv_snd

1600x900, 14-bit lossless, 16:9
Preview: Realtime
Small hacks: ON
Auto Mirroring: Don't allow
15 min. - Video OK, sound OK, NO ERRORS!

Everything went as normal: audio meter bars showing up and working, camera reacting normally, when starting and stopping recording. I should mention, that I tried recording in 1776x1000 with everything alse the same, but the camera stopped after a couple of minutes. It stopped in a normal manner, like when the resolution is just too high - no unusual errors. When I tested that build before, with the higher resolution, it worked for 40 mins., but now with mlv_snd also loaded, it looks like it can't keep up.

Doesn't make much sense to me. In all tests I kept ML at default settings with only the modules, mentioned above loaded. I don't think Canon's menu settings have an effect on RAW recording, but most were kept at defaults (incl. audio), except: image recording set to RAW only, video recording format set to 24fps, IPB, colour profile set to Faithful (from Auto), Beeping turned off. Can't think of anything else. The way I switched from build to build for testing, was without uninstalling ML, just deleting one build's files from the card and copying the other build's onto it. I have both builds with my settings backed up in folders.

I'll keep testing. If anyone has any insight, please share.

That's the moment, when the bell rang in my head. Was beeping turned off also during your initial tests when sound didn't work at all?

If you take look at the first post in this topic:

I think I still had it on, when I did the first tests. I can't remember exactly when I disabled it, though. I didn't think such a seemingly inconsequential setting could have such, well, consequences. I'll try enabling it back to see what happens.

EDIT: Yup, with "Beep" enabled, I get 5-20 secs. before an Err70. Thank you very much, ArcziPL, for pointing this out!

fps override not jumping to default
Wow! Andy, how did you do that? Which build, which modules loaded, how do you manage to increase resolution to 3k and make FPS not jump back?

its your build. i use sd_uhs and script from danne. i play around with shutter range and timer A. i have tested with different fps like 16,18,20,21 as per my need and all work fine without jumping

its in 5X Zoom mode so i can go upto 3.5k. little problem with the preview as the "framing" in preview dont work sometimes but "realtime" always work

So the "playing around with shutter range and timer A" you do with adtg_gui?

Can you show exact settings in that menu? For me it rather doesn't work. Timer B and shutter time are jumping all the time, even if I try to change values.

BTW: dfort, I tried your magiclantern-crop_rec_4k_70D_crop_rec_mo.2019Mar29.70D112.zip (copying only crop_rec.mo to my build)

mv720 3x3 binning option can be then activated and results in such footage:



Not really as expected but seeing your crop_rec.mo already doing something and what andy_kh managed to achieve, it looks like we are just few steps from presets on 70D.

Wow, you timer settings do work! You managed 3k on 70D. :o Thanks a lot!

Can you elaborate a bit more...? I tried using the complete build from dfort but the cam freezes immediately after powering on...

dfort, can you combine Andy's discovery with crop_rec? You seem to be the right person even without having the cam... :)

i use your build and replace crop_rec.mo with dfort's build and wala
for those lines the easiest solution is just scrol to 24fps once from 50fps in canon menu and scroll back to 50fps and wala
i think i have a problem with sd_uhs hack with it. i wil do some more test later as im goin out now....

Hmm, now I see that 3k is already possible without FPS override (just the datarate is high) but in 5x magnification. Up to now I believed 3x zoom = 5x magnification with fixed live view but apparently it's not like that.

And the FPS timer B still jumps to the original value for me. It just has less influence on FPS if timer A is set to a high value.

fps override is for longer recording time
