MVLFS problem ?
« on: April 01, 2018, 05:24:40 PM »

when I transform my MLV file with MLVFS I get a DNG but the image is composed of color point ... (example jpeg)
Can someone help me?

(win 10) and the weight of the MLV in Mo is important and the DNG export file about 3 MB

thanks !

I apologize if the language is not good

This happened to me because I was using a copy from the developer experience and not from the approved and stable versions, and I was able to convert the file to DNG with MLV.App.v1.12 if you were using a copy of Magic Lantern other than the stable version for example 10-bit 12-bit version 14-bit or developer trial version like the one that records 4K You must use MLV.App to properly extract DNG any other application that will only work with Nightly Builds.

You can use mlvfs but you need a newer version with support for lossless compression.

This version was working for me 2 years ago:
M50.110 [main cam] | G7X III [pocket cam] | 70D.112 [gathers dust] | M.202 [gathers dust] | waiting for M5II
