Quote from: Andy600 on December 15, 2013, 02:54:53 PM***************************************New Build of Tragic Lantern uploaded***************************************DisclaimerAs the 50D and several other models have been removed from the nightly builds (at least temporarily until the acceptable parts of Tragic Lantern are ported), you have the option of either building your own or downloading my build of 1%'s Tragic Lantern for the 50D. I regularly receive messages regarding these builds as to their reliability and safety but I can only offer my opinion based on my own experience and daily usage. I am not an experienced coder. I have very basic knowledge (enough to compile and port a few things) and accept that developers like a1ex and g3gg0 would not highlight the dangers of such builds without good cause. I therefore state again that using these builds may damage your camera, although I have never personally had any problems. By installing an unsupported build of Magic Lantern (as is the case with Tragic Lantern) you do so unsupported and entirely at your own risk. Please do not expect a1ex or other devs to come to the rescue if something breaks.Hopefully, with a little help from willing users we can begin to commit things back to the main Magic Lantern Unified build and get it back into the nightly releases but for now, if you want the latest features, you will need to use Tragic Lantern. Tragic Lantern is a rolling release and many features are experimental, specific to certain cameras and not thoroughly tested (although I do try to test as much as possible before uploading a new build). Tragic Lantern still has issues with incorrect shutter readout and problems with digital ISO. Please do not ask me when this will be fixed. I simply don't know and my guess is that it is a fairly big issue that will need a lot of work by a knowledgeable dev.The latest buildIt's been about a month since I last uploaded a build. There have been improvements to mlv_rec which is now, IMO, as useable as raw_rec with the added benefit of metadata, however raw_rec is still included and has an 'experimental' feature of selectable single or double buffering. It is up to you to test and report back here The Histogram was broken for several months and nobody noticed. A1ex spotted that only the top half of the histogram was being used (probably why the lower half always appeared red). This is now fixed.mlv_play has had a few improvements and is useable for either .mlv or .raw video playback. You can press the camera play button to instantly access playback of your most recent shot and use the top wheel to scroll through other shots. Pressing the Picture Style button will bring up the player controls with selectable (fast) playback in grayscale or (slow) color. You can also now delete clips using the player.The issue with pink or corrupt frames (.mlv) was resolved in the last build but has since been found to be overkill, lowering the priority of the writer below what the camera is capable of. The priority has been increased and you can now shoot .mlv with Global Draw ON and use focus peaking. I have tested this feature and not had any pink frames but please report if you have this problem. A balance needs to be found between performance and reliability.To work around the shutter issue I suggest setting the shutter angle in the main menu and then locking the shutter in the movie menu (movie tweaks) after setting your desired fps with FPS override. There are also several other minor tweaks and fixes but mostly to backend stuff.

Quote from: lomka on December 22, 2013, 12:15:21 AMUnfortunately i don't have a card reader, is there a way to install magic lantern without card reader?
Quote from: dogmydog on December 23, 2013, 01:45:50 PMAlso, if you can, get a USB 3.0 card reader.It seems that USB 2.0 card readers are damaging 1000x CF cards. I had a damaged Transcend that i sent to RMA, but I'm not sure if its card reader related.
Quote from: riccardocovino on December 24, 2013, 09:28:39 AMGreat effort SebaVuye.But I would notice some points: I don't understand why, even using RAw, you have some overexposed areas, making the whole thing look digital.Notice the bed on the right while the telephone is ringing, or the hand on the left while watching the photo.Also the head in the first shots has a light problem, making it look a bit flat and not enough dramatic.Last, but not about the quality of filming, is that original actor gives much more tension.Anyway, an excellent exercise!
Quote from: LEVISDAVIS on December 26, 2013, 08:14:18 AMPosted a 5 minute video featuring the 50D and the BMPCC. It's not your typical camera comparison video... It's more of a get to know your camera for what it's worth type video. I hope it helps you look further into the power of the camera. Here is the link to the video.http://youtu.be/1eNuxW5fIew
Quote from: LEVISDAVIS on December 26, 2013, 07:41:26 AMGive it some time SebaVuye. You're working with a great camera. Yes, there are some overheating issues that tend to cause issues when writing files... I would agree that the framing may have been off with cinemascopes put in place... Another issue is if you view the LCD screen in a ML Hacked Mode... There can be a slow refresh rate issue too. But, again, it really is a great tool. Maybe a little finicky from time to time, but this camera is well worth the time. It will certainly capture some timeless moments. Enjoy and keep shooting. P.S. Watching your video now.
Quote from: SebaVuye on December 25, 2013, 11:28:15 PMThanksAll true. The overexposed area's are the result of ACR and this flickering issue when adjusting Highlights and Shadows sliders :/ I left those two options untouched in ACR because every adjustment resulted in flickering of my image.Merry Christmas!
Quote from: simulacro on December 26, 2013, 02:17:19 PMIf you are working the color correction in After Effects, the Color Finesse correction tool has a highlight recovery slider very nice indeed
Quote from: LEVISDAVIS on December 31, 2013, 03:55:31 AMChecking out the new 50D TL build... Really, really appreciate how the 3X mode is real-time.Next up is to shoot with MLV. I haven't had a Mac that runs on the latest operating system... But I will say that RawMagic and DaVinci Resolve 10 works in perfect unison if anyone is interested in recording .raw instead of .mlv.Be sure to give ANDY600's recent LUT a try and/or donate to the cause. That is a really amazing LUT!Thanks so much.
