Delete ML directory from the card. Extract ML directory and autoexec.bin from nightly and copy them onto the card root.

Did I wrote "perform firmware update"? No? Guess why!

Seems obvious and makes sense in retrospect when you know how the software works - however as a new user of ML I assumed that running a nightly build would require the same steps as loading a stable - now I understand it doesn't and why.

Thanks for posting and assisting in my understanding,

Re: Nightly Builds - Getting heavy purple chromatic aberration with this build
« Reply #452 on: December 22, 2013, 10:29:23 PM »
Shot still photo test with 60D/50mm1.4 and found with this nightly build I get heavy purple CA as compared to stock firmware. And only slightly more CA than with the Nov 7th build.

Anyone else see this?

How could firmware affect the optics in any way? I'm pretty sure you can't reprogram glass.

May be I should say a purple fringe around high contrast adjunct areas. Obviously it is not literally CA. But, the image is digitally processed and anything can happen as a result of it. In any case, there is a difference in the last two builds I've installed.

Hey, I'm no expert and not trying to be a smart ass  :'( boo hoo . LOL.

I do actually need some help in figuring out what is causing this.



The only difference is the right image is on the latest build, the left image is on the previous build.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong. I would like to know!

The focus changed slightly from one shot to another. See the reply from dmilligan.

Just downloaded the nightly build for 5dmkiii. It worked for a bit but now the movie recording is stopping after 1 frame. It says "bug, please report."
I'm using Komputerbay 1200x 128gb card. It was fine for the 2.3 stable build.

Actually it was trying to write to the SD card. When I put in the CF card it doesn't recognize it, even though it automatically does a CF card test. When I turn the camera on it just says "card 2 write protected." Card 2 is the SD card. So it's not even seeing the CF card like it should.

Can you file a bug report then instead of just posting about it?

a1ex, I just noticed that you've removed the 50D nightly builds.

So new ML users with a 50D have lost the possibility to record RAW video with their camera (due to missing repositories for downloading builds which supports this)?!
Seriously?

What's the point of having development builds if nobody is developing? That's the reason they were removed. The code is still in the repo, anyone is welcome to download it and build it themselves.

Reporting bug on v2.3.NEXT.2013Dec28
« Reply #468 on: December 28, 2013, 04:08:37 PM »
Hi Alex
Got the 5D3113. Using the latest version v2.3.NEXT.2013Dec28. Loaded MLV_REC. Once I raw record. The focus peak doesn't work anymore. Then I stop recording and the Global Draw are gone. To display them back I needed to take a random picture.

Hoping on a fix! thanks for your work

Turn on G. Draw Disable in the module settings.

Hi.
What is happening to the ML for 6D ? There is no way do download it any more. I know it was working fine With the nightly build until magiclantern-v2.3.NEXT.2013Oct06.6D113. But now there is no way to download the latest ML for 6D anymore.

Yep: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=8900.msg91310#msg91310

The problem is that nobody is maintaining the 6D port except 1%, who for some strange reason is not contributing his changes back to the main repo. Basically he is only maintaining his competing fork. a1ex got tired of manually merging 1%'s changes for him. You can use TL if you want, personally I wouldn't.

Can at least the last 6D ML version be made available?

Maybe alex had given a link in the past. I do not know. I will search but a link would be welcome...

And 50D, please.

In the thread "RAW video & ML -- Beginners Guide, FAQ & Useful Links -- READ FIRST" they refer to builds.magiclantern.fm/#/ as the download source for RAW video firmware, which isn‘t correct anymore in the case of the 50D.

What's the point of having development builds if nobody is developing?

The point is that users without knowledge of compiling code can easily use ML for RAW recording.

You (developers) think: "Nobody is developing, so it makes no sense when we keep it in there"
I (user) think: "Why we have to compile it by ourselves just because nobody is developing?"

Nope, that is not at all the point of nightly builds, you are completely wrong. The point of nightly builds is to aid developers by allowing users to test new features, so that developers can get feedback on those new features and fix bugs, etc. The developers only go to the trouble of making builds available to you so that you can provide feedback and testing. There is no point in automatically putting out new builds if this is not a closed loop. If there is no developer there to receive the feedback, there is no point in having the automatic public builds.

ML is not some polished consumer product ready to be used by every Tom, Dick, and Harry. It's a hobby project written by hackers (in the good sense) in their spare time. Some assembly required (pardon the pun).

I (user) think: "Why we have to compile it by ourselves just because nobody is developing?"
You realize this question reduces to "Why do we have to do something ourselves if there is nobody to do it for us?"
