Create a new Applescript, paste this, and save it as an APP.

Is this your code?
Edit: The problem I've discovered with getting the filename using Finder is that it often fails. I've got a script obj-c applescript that I can easily convert to a proper applescript if you want it.

Save you the hard work :D
I've got it setting everything via folder prompts but you could change it to hardcoded strings if you wanted to speed things up.
Code: [Select]
on run
set these_items to {} as list
set outputfolder to ""
set mlv2dng to (choose file with prompt "Choose the mlv2dng app") as string
set outputfolder to chooseoutputfolder(outputfolder)
set these_items to choosefilesbutton(these_items)
processfileselection(these_items, mlv2dng, outputfolder)
end run
on chooseoutputfolder(outputfolder)
set outputfolder to (choose folder with prompt "Select an output folder:") as list
repeat with i from 1 to (the count of (outputfolder as list))
set this_item to item i of (outputfolder as list)
set the item_info to info for (this_item)
if folder of the item_info is true then
set outputfolder to POSIX path of outputfolder
else
set outputfolder to POSIX path of (container of outputfolder)
end if
end repeat
return outputfolder
end chooseoutputfolder

on choosefilesbutton(these_items)
set these_items to (choose file with prompt "Choose a file or folder to process. Note: you can select any or all files; only the MVL files will be processed." with multiple selections allowed) as list

@ nick.p,

thanks for the script,
i try it but i get this:

error "sh: line 1:   386 Segmentation fault      '/Users/xxx/Pictures/[ Raw Test ]/MLV Test/M05-1436/mlv2dng' '/Users/xxx/Pictures/[ Raw Test ]/M05-1436.MLV'" number 139

I'm on OSX 10.6.8, i tried several time with different files but always the same results, any clue ?
Also i tried the Mac Gui version  from 8-beeeaaat but it's only for 10.8 and it doesn't run on my mac.

@ dubzeebass
Which is your OS ?
Does work for you ?

Thanks for your efforts

Thx dubzeebass,

Another thing i noticed, the script is creating a copy of mlv2dng in the folder i've made for the dng files.

Here the AppleScript GUI


I try to run the script on a MacBookPro 2,4Ghz C2D, 10.6.8
I run the laste TragicLatern build from Andy600 (Tragic_Lantern_50D109-Andy600.Build.2013Sep08.zip)

All I can think is that maybe it's the [ ] brackets?  Try without.

I tried to remove brackets (no other brackets in the path) but same problem happens,
see below



I tried the script on a MacPro 2,1 (10.6.8) and got the same problem

Thx

The segmentation fault is likely caused by mlv2dng. An easy way to diagnose this kind of errors is to run the program under valgrind. If you compile it without optimization and with -ggdb, it will be a lot easier for valgrind to show the exact source of the problem.

Thanks a1ex,
i'm not a dev, i downloaded valgrind and i tried it,
this app sounds like a UFO for me… i didn't understand nothing (i read FAQ and Quick Start Guide)
I am sorry and i would love to give the best info to solve the problem but it's to far from me.
How can i help in antoher way ?
Is there another way to convert MLV in OSX 10.6.8 ?
thx
eric

You can upload a sample video that crashes (1-2 seconds).

I don't use a mac, so I can't help you here. But anyone who can compile mlv2dng should be able to look into it.

@dubzeebass+nick.p
I need a little help, could you try to convert the MLV file i've uploaded (link in my last post) in your mac cause a1ex told that he haven't a mac ?
Got lot of project working on 10.6.8 for the moment but i will migrate to 10.7 soon (last OS available for a MacPro 2,1), but for the moment i would love to test the MLV format.
Many thx
