And just like that, after I pulled the files from the CF card to hard drive and deleted them, it's skipping frames again, still formatted to FAT32.

I guess I'll shoot with the normal raw video and second system sound at a shoot this afternoon, then I'll get back to trying to make mlv2.0 work for me later. It's very exciting that sound recording has been made possible! I'm thinking even a scratch track at 8-bit 22kHz could be used to automatically sync up the second system audio later (pluraleyes/fcpx/etc).

I shot a full 12 mins @ 1920x1080 with sound on a 5D3 with the 64gb KomputerBay 1000x card in a test.  Maybe this isn't new information, but I was reading that people were having issues with skipping… I didn't lose sync once.

*It is important to note, however, in a previous attempt with the sync beep on (which didn't sound at rec start) there was NO recorded audio when I processed the clip.

Audio
1 Beep, test tones - off
2 MLV Sound - ON
   - trace off
   - Sample rate 48k

Movie
1 - REC indicator - Elapsed Time
2 - Gradual Expo - off
3 - FPS override - off
4 - HDR video - off
5 - Vignetting - off
6 - Image Finetunning - none
7 - RAW video (MLV) - on, 1920x1080
   - disable g draw - off
   - frame skip - off
   - preview - ML Grayscale (I'm using a zacuto evf so it isn't grayscale over hdmi)
   - start delay - off
   - digital dolly - off
   - card warm-up - off
   - memory hack -off
   - extra hacks - on
   - debug trace - off
   - show buffer graph - off
   - test mode - off
   - buffer fill method - 4
   - CF-only buffers - 3
   - Card spanning - off
   - tag:text - none
   - tag:take - off
8 - Movie Tweaks
   - movie logging - off
   - REC/stby - red crossout
   - dim rec led - on
   - force liveview - start& cpulens

Modules - file_man, mlv_rec, mlv_snd  *no other modules loaded.

Sound in canon menu is on auto.

I'm not sure if ALL of these settings make a difference… but maybe it'll help trace down the issue.

I do think it is important to note that with sync beep on, several times my first frame has been garbled and no audio was recorded, despite mlv sound being on.

Set picture quality to jpeg? You mean in the normal Canon menu? Does that affect video recording for some reason with mlv_rec when it doesn't seem to have an impact on raw_rec?

Yep, I'm still getting .m00 files, but I am not (nor did I ever) have an issue with them splitting.

Should it be? I don't know.  It isn't in my setup and it is working.

the first 4GiB are saved in a .mlv, the next in a .m00, the next in .m01 and so on.

memory hack on 5D3 gives you some extra buffers

@g3ggo

used MLV dec 29 and ML dec 30.

I can achieve continuous ok MLV with Sound On with the ff resolutions;

1728 x 972 16:9

1856 x 928 2:1

they can record 15 min in a 64 gig 1000X KB card.
tested with clapper at regular intervals to test for audio sync. -No problems with sync.

1872 x 936 - starts to skip after 8 min.

tested FPS over ride with sound- I find this nice as it will work. MLV Sound is recorded in real time.
This can be used in certain situations.

I had a minor problem when the framing guides and other info turns OFF when recording and found out that

DISABLE G. DRAW needs to be ON to keep the frame guides and other overlays on Screen.

I suggest this be RENAMED as its description and name does the Opposite and got me misled.

Also, using certain screen layouts, the buffer graphics/elapsed time/frames/datarate info that comes on during record
clashes with the overlays such as vu meters, lens info framing guide etc.
Using 16:10 HDMI t/b layout scheme will help avoid this.

On using ext HDMI monitor.- I get short record times and coruppted frames with hdmi attached.

1728 x 972 GD.OFF + hdmi monitor = 28 sec only then skips and stops.
1856 x 928 GD.OFF + hdmi monitor = 35 sec only then skips and stops has corrupt frames.

Finished a shoot yesterday and recorded using mlv_rec . Some of the takes were longer and over 4gb in size where ML split them into .m00 .m01 etc. Every time I open MLV browse sharp and navigate to the folder where the files are located it quits. Any pointers from anyone ?

I also noted that some of the clips are 4.29gb in size FYI card is exfat formatted.

Thanks !
