Do the images look okay in camera? Do they look okay if you open them in a different program? What happens if you just take some pictures with the same settings you have and open them in Lr. What if you put the camera in JPEG mode instead of RAW? Do you have dual_iso turned on? if so you'll have to preprocess them with cr2hdr first or they wont open correctly in other programs.

Quote from: dmilligan on September 23, 2013, 03:32:28 PM... I might be able to write a script for AE that makes ramping ACR settings easier. I know that the script API for AE has some pretty good integration with the native AE GUI, but I'm not that familiar with the AE scripting..

I tried taking some stuff out to speed it up, but it stopped working altogether. I assume that whoever wrote that code knew what they were doing and probably tried to make at fast as they could (they certainly know more than me). I think the only possible improvement would be reverse engineering a lot further Canon's focus control mechanisim, which is way beyond my current abilities.2. No, there's not really a better way to do this, I wish there was, but again it would probably require more reverse engineering. ML has no way to really figure out how many "steps" the current focus position is at when focused manually. Basically all it can do is step the focus and count the number steps you take. I could potentially at least pull in the focus rack end point setting automatically, but that requires a change to the core (to allow modules to read this value). I've already submitted a pull request for what I would need to do this (and reading/writing many other ML settings), but its still pending.Perhaps you can spend a little time creating a chart for each lens of steps vs. focus distance. You could even put marks on your lens like the distance markings, with step numbers, if you dont mind defacing your lens. I've thought about doing this to my nifty fifty (also add distance markings too since it doesn't have those either).3. Thanks for the feedback, I had no idea what the maximum for any possible lens was so I just guessed (none of my lenses step more than several hundred). I'll update that to 5,000 just to be safe.4. LV has to be running for focus to work but you can try this: http://wiki.magiclantern.fm/userguide#powersave_in_liveview
Quote from: a1ex on October 21, 2013, 03:56:09 PMI guess it's a good idea to remove the focus ramping from the core, and just leave a basic intervalometer there, right?
Quote from: a1ex on October 21, 2013, 03:56:09 PMAlso I'm thinking to merge the module this week, but I want to solve the menu issue first. I thought a bit at how to implement menu with submenus (basically I'll rename submenu_mode to something like submenu_level and keep the existing data structures).
Quote from: jezhunziker on October 21, 2013, 04:22:54 PMThanks for reply, adding extra focus steps will be really useful. The Rack focus end point isn't a bad workaround as we all know a good timelapse is all in the setup... It's strange how much the focal distance effects the number of steps, I wonder if it's constant from one lens to another, I only have one variable focus lens but I could see if it matches number of steps at 50mm against my nifty 50.. I'll try and post a chart for 24-105mmThanks for the advise with LiveView - I'll try and find a way to shut off it off once TL is started either that or will need to purchase a few extra batteries..
Quote from: Francis on October 18, 2013, 05:25:01 PMI want to be able to trigger an intervalometer sequence using an IR or wired remote.
Quote from: J24 on October 30, 2013, 04:32:00 PMI use a motion control system so I'd love to have an option to trigger the ramping and shooting with an external (wired) intervalometer.
Quote from: J24 on October 30, 2013, 04:32:00 PMMy controller can take the signal as input but can the camera send it?
