Where it says Here inside the package

@Danne Have installed the new mlv_dump, but am still getting the same error in ACR, and only embedded camera profile available.
Do I perhaps need to purge the old version of mlv_dump somehow from usr/ ? Terminal is showing:

MLV Dumper v1.0
-----------------

Sorry to be a pain!

UPDATE: This has now been fixed by me doing a clean install of ML on the CF card. Not sure where the problem was… :o

Not sure whats going on here. Could be acr. Gotta try myself when I get home.
You can put older mlv dumps in the script workflow if they work

@Danne Thanks for checking. Maybe it's a weird gremlin in my ACR 8.3/CC/Osx 10.7.5 setup… :o

PS Just out of interest, does your ACR report your camera ID correctly i.e 'Canon 5D MkII' (or whatever) in the top bar?

Does your dng works when working with raw instead of mlv?

You mean mlv > raw > dng ?

I haven't tried that – not sure how actually (yet) :-[

Oh, I see. Yes indeed – dngs extracted from a normal raw file work fine in various apps (RawMagic, raw2dng, raw2Cdng) reporting the ID as either 'Canon 5D2 Mk II' or 'Canikon'

It's only mlv that's giving me the error in the dng tag. :/

I'd post on the relevant mlv thread for exploration by the coders. Will update original post later thanks Danne.

Cool dubzeebass.
@timbytheriver
Put up the question in the main mlv thread by g3gg0. Be very specific.

Did you run it in same directory as the MLV file?

If so there's something wrong with your file and mlv_dump can't open it... Make sure you've got the latest archive from the original post and last MLV_DUMP

Hi dubzeebass,
yes i did. I copie the MLV file iim the same directory.
My OS X version in 10.8.5.
Magic Lantern Version is 2.3 (december).
Camera : 5D MKIII

When double click on MLV file only two empty TXT file are generated.

What do you think ?

Try running mlv_dump from the terminal in the same folder as: ./mlv_dump --dng filename.mlv

Let me know if it dumps.

Cross question from the other "Feature Request: Batch Convert MLV files to DNG" thread:

is there a way for me to set a specific destination folder, by altering or adding a line to the script?

I tried variations of altering the mkdir, mv, and cd lines to a specific folder but had no luck. The folder was made thanks to mkdir but all the .dngs just got dumped in in the same folder the .mlv was in.

By now I am copying .mlv files from the CF Card to a certain folder and then run the script in there. As the folder is on an external hdd, the time for the copying process and mlv_dump to process the files could be greatly reduced by reading from one disk and writing to another.

Any help is deeply appreciated, the same way all your work already is.

Thank you very much in advance

Well there,s a lot of links to follow but if you know how to film and enable raw modules you should be able to do the same to mlv.
I would suggest to follow this link and start reading
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7122.msg96859#msg96859
The first page of the link has the sound module and the mlv module needed to record audio (a wav file) which you have to synch in post.
Good luck
