Yes ,.. stupid me! I also need to turn off auto turn off!..


Next to that! I have read the whole forum but can't find a good straight forward workflow for raw. (for me as a sony vegas user! :( )

What i do is:

5D RAW to RAW2DNG.exe

DNG files in photoshop raw and save all files to .TIF

Then open in quicktime and save them to a movie in H.264.... (can't find any other good codec in the list!)

then in sony vegas

Also don't know good rendering settings in sony vegas!

Can someone give me some good advice on this?

Thank you for your reply!

I have not tested the transcend but here is a chart showing what the mkII can do at 25P.
Tested with Komputerbay and lexar both 1000X.

I'm new to using MLV. When using mlrawviewer the video looks very bad: colors are all washed out and sort of pinkish.

I'm currently using magiclantern-Nightly.2014Mar29.5D2212

The black level is wrong due to a bug in the version of mlv_rec you used, so those files would need to be manually fixed to be displayed or converted correctly.

You need to upgrade to a newer ML with correct black levels.

As I understand it, the bug was in Magic Lantern - not MlRawViewer. Sorry, but I don't know any of the details about the fix

Should I use another build?

Don't judge the footage from the viewer, extract the dngs first and confirm them via after effects or resolve, or even open a frame in photoshop if thats actually the case.

Why don't you just use RAWanizer? http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=5557.0

It automatically converts the DNGs into Tiffs.

Unfortunately the video quality is still looking bad after exporting  :( . Some examples (password is MLV):

I need a lot of time to correct these images using ARC or Premiere Pro

@ elfrabo

Try this:

On Magic Lantern's Movie menu goto RAW (MLV) then go to the sub settings and find Fix black level turn it OFF

Then film something and see if you have the problem.

There are horrible green lines at 0:11-0:13.
I dont know whether these are from the camera itself or DaVinci Resolve....

I didnt use a VAF-5d2 filter, so i guess these are the typical anti aliasing - moire'ish problems?

Resolve is known to have such problems with footage from ML. Something to do with the debayer it uses. At the moment ACR 'gets on' with the footage much better. (IMHO)

So yeah,
I just lost a day worth of footage because of this pink frame bs.
Whoever decided an unknown new feature called "fix black level" should be turned on as default... Thanks. I will be checking the menus every time from now on.

Ouch.  Using experimental software in a production environment, without first checking, and, double checking the output, probably wasn't the smartest idea.

Fortunately, you can use exiftool to recover the footage.

That is really helpful...
Colors looked ok in the camera screen and I have an older version of ML in another card in case the nightly doesnt work, or it does something weird. This was something I did not predict as nothing looked weird at the time. Thanks for the vague answer, but I'm off to reshoot.

He was simply implying that you made a test shoot before doing the real shoot.

As in, on location, do a quick test and see if everything checks out and then proceed to do the actual shooting.

You should always have a workflow like that, even with "normal" equipment.

Sorry, I misplaced the silver platter earlier.

I found it.
You will need to change the black level to 1024, or around 1700.

As expected, this issue has been posted all over the forums, and a quick search for the codeword I left in my last post, found the silver platter linked above.

Feel free to keep ranting about software that is provided to you for free though.

I just shot a commercial on the Mar 30 nightly build. Stupid idea, and never again. I keep trying and trying MLV builds, and I keep having problems. OCT26th A.D. build for 5D is rock solid, but the HDMI crash bug on that one drives my camera op nuts.

All my footage came out pink as well. Use exiftool to fix the dngs with this command: Exiftool –BlackLevel=1791. No need to re-shoot.

Second, every shot that had any kind of motion has atrocious tearing of the image. This occurs when the HDMI monitor is plugged in. Fortunately, due to the aesthetic of the commercial, I can use Twitch to cover up the tearing, so our huge dolly rig wasn't completely to waste. One or two shots cannot be used this way and are ruined.

I founded a very stable build from the nightly that I trust for paid work with out question !  Feb16th link below: http://builds.magiclantern.fm/jenkins/job/5D2.212/206/artifact/platform/5D2.212/magiclantern-v2.3.NEXT.2014Feb16.5D2212.zip
Changeset: 536fbadfcc312939ba6af7d812c8cf1025ca1050
Its rock solid with HDMI and still has the 1872 option(continuous too) , as I sad I trust this for work, I never try new build for work as there is also issues  & the chance of failure
is too great. I torture test the raw builds for at lest a day, if it can handle being recorded 5 time in a row (full 64GB card) it a keeper. ;)

Mainly HDMI EVF/hard drive recorders with large frame sizes plus audio.
I'm not saying the latest builds are unstable not at all. In fact you don't hear of any big problems period  it the most Stable Camera at the moment . :)
It work ! and that's Great.
I need & want the largest frame size I can record closest to HD with audio and that would be 1872x936 2:1 as I need a quick turn around
without have to do to much work in resizing. So 2:1 work just right for me as I just leave the little black bar on the top bottom
as I do a mainly news stories. There for I need HDMI to be rock solid as I depend on it as for Backup to recorder & EVF.
You don't Get a Second chance at a news story, so I error on the side of caution   :D

I'm a passive reader of this forums....   And I hate when people comes saying that ML had ruin their shot or something like that... It's experimental software (that works) provided for free, documented and with a forum filled with users experienced, workarounds, etc... What do this people expect???
As another user had posted beafore, it's unthinkable to go to the field without testing everything first.
Sorry.. I ve needed to say this.

@reddeercity: got it, I thought you have found some nasty bugs in the latest builds. I didn't run it on HDMI for a while, so maybe it's time to check it again.
