I just copied the files in both the data and fonts folders.
It is dirty but it worked.

How much you wanna do it for? Of Course I will have to verify that it works on my camera...

Just imagine every port taking several hundert hours. Image the price tag and spend your bucks on a camera supporting ML.

It would be THAT costly? So, I would do better getting the 1100D insteard of the 1200D?

Devs compare porting ML to translating a pile of egypt glyphs and a big one.
EDIT: "A" video? You are kidding, right? You may start here:

The answer to your question is that porting ML to a new camera is a very difficult and very time consuming task. And can be done only by highly skilled developers, who know a lot of C and ARM assembly programming, and that had spent a lot of time learning specifically how Canon firmware and Magic Lantern code work. There is a lot of information in the forum about all this stuff.

Current developers have said several times that they have no time to port ML to new cameras. There are 13 camera models already supported. And only keeping all this ports up to date is a task too big for current ML team.

You have just asked a question, true ... but there are too many requests flooding the forum from users continuosly demanding ports for more cameras ... and this is not possible by now, as explained. And that constant pressure is very annoying for the devs, and does not help the project at all.

So, if you need ML,  please take it as it is now, and try to get a camera that already supports ML.

Thank you Josepvm. I understand that there are many requests, but did not realize how time consuming it was to be developed. I thank you for your respectful response. I currently have a T5/1200D. I will work to get a T3/1100D because that is one of the cameras right?

1100D is an inexpensive option to start using ML, true. It has lower resolution than 1200D, but this also means larger pixels and good performance for night photography.

But current implementation of ML for 1100D has some limitations. Mainly in features related to RAW data reading: ETTR, Dual-ISO, RAW histogram, RAW Zebras. I think they do not work in Liveview mode on the 1100D.

There are other options; you can get a used 500D or 550D, they are also affordable and will provide you that features missing in 1100D. It depends on your specific needs.

There are some tables that show ML features available on different camera models:

https://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/features
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AgQ2MOkAZTFHdFFIcFp1d0R5TzVPTVJXOEVyUndteGc#gid=5
http://nanomad.magiclantern.fm/feats.html
http://nanomad.magiclantern.fm/nightly/features.html

Some of them can be a little outdated. So best thing you can do, before buying a camera, is to read thoroughly the specific thread for that camera in the "Camera specific discussion" section, to know last news about available features and known issues with your desired camera model.

Excuse my poor English. As many people here, I am not a native English speaker.

And please, do not consider Walter a rude person, he is doing a great job here, patiently guiding new users through their first steps installing and starting to use Magic Lantern. Your post asking for a video explaining how to port Magic Lantern to a new camera, might have sounded too surrealistic for him. As explained, that is a very complex task. Your question is somehow like asking for a short video to learn how to compose a simphony, or build a rocket for a mission to Mars ...

Try to move lens AF/Manual switch to "Manual", to get rid of the focus box.

Normally the focus box should not be visible on the recording .... unless you were triying to use an external HDMI recorder. Entry-level Canon cameras do not have clean HDMI output.

 But using manual focusing should remove the focus box. If that does not work ... try the different AF methods available on Canon menu: normal, face detection and tracking.

On my EOS M changing to manual focus removes the AF box in video recording mode. On my 500D switching to manual focus makes the focus box bigger when recording is stopped, but it disappears when you start shooting. And using face detect AF also removes it completely .... so you will need to test every focus setting.

Thanks for your thoughts.

So does this mean that the latest stable dev-preview has been compiled for Mavericks and doesnt run in older versions? Do I need to compile it myself?

Hello here, I am brand new to ML and I have now struggled for a good part of the day. I just figured out that the latest nightly build don't come with a fir fil.

I am looking for the 134 fir file for 5d mk3. Where on earth can I find it?

Thanks in Advance
