Press the Menu button while in ML.

Actually, that exits menu and back to liveview. Not sure why it´s not working. Feel free to investigate this issue further.

Crap. Sorry, you are right! 4 cameras with ML working slightly differently on all of them can get a man confused  ::)
This explains my annoyance when I get this screen on my other cameras - I expect to exit ML as with EOS M but instead I get this...

CHecked some. Seems to be called junkie menu. It´s supposed to be defined in features.h. However. Defining it doesn´t get it to work. I guess one needs some digging here.

Hmm.. just checked. 5Dm3 exits ML upon pressing Menu but 7D goes into this menu, which has two different screens - one with fewer bigger buttons and the other one with more buttons of smaller size. Pressing Menu cycles ML - sceen 1 - screen 2 - ML. The build is https://bitbucket.org/ArcziPL/magic-lantern/downloads/magiclantern-Nightly.2019Mar07.70D112_crop_rec_4k_mlv_lite_lossless.zip

Nice. I'll have a look later. Probably onle needs to bbe defined in features.h in eosm platform so if you can compile try and define it there.

Added a possibility to add back junkie menu into the eosm:
https://bitbucket.org/Dannephoto/magic-lantern/commits/d283181580d93c04acf86c57ee9093ebef182afc

Inside the platform folder for eosm define this in features.h then compile your own version or ask for someone to help you out on this. I will not include it to my ongoing builds for the time being:
#define FEATURE_JUNKIE_MENU

was trying the new timelapse option in 4k anamorphic, let the eosm record for 6 minutes, choose 3fps, when opening the mlv in mlvapp it showed that the video has a duration of 6 minutes, it seems i need to speed up the video after.

Right. In MLVApp's export settings dialog, choose fps override and export to whatever you need. Then the clips becomes shorter.

I know a camera is not a smartphone, on my phone it records @30fps, i select to take a pic every 3 seconds, if i do this for 6 minutes i'll have a 5 second video @30fps.

Yes, the preset is designed like this. It will use a 7fps wrapper if I recall correctly. This is because we then don´t need the major lag that otherwise will happen. Only when recording the fps is changed to the lower one but still with the 7fps wrapper. If you experiment some in Mlv App you should be able to get what you want in post.

Sure, if you don't setup fps override in MLVApp this is expected. Type e.g. 25fps in this field and you'll get what you want.

Just tested. Seems to work as I told you. Recorded a 3fps file for a minute and about 174 frames. Turned it off and then 7fps and around 500 frames after a minute. So speeding up the timelapse i the solution to your problem.
Maybe I can set a different metadata tag when ending recording. Will have a look on this.

But to what framerate do you set then? Some person like 24, some other 25, the next guys love 30...

True, Either set to the same fps as set 3fps or just leave at the wrapper 7fps one.

Hi everyone, new guy here.  After seeing some of Zeek's videos, I was motivated to jump on the MLV bandwagon and got me a used EOS M.

I loaded it with Danne's ML from early in June (thanks for your work and dedication Danne!).  Also, I went ahead and got the Viltrox EF-EOS M2 Speedbooster, so I can use some of my EF lenses.

I have been doing some tests using the Canon 50mm 1.8 and I am very pleased with the results so far, but still need to go through all the settings and menus.  However, I seem to be having a battery drain issue...only when the SD card with ML is inserted.  I have been going through some of the 116 pages that are now in this thread, but I cannot find the answer to fix this.  Some people had said upgrading the firmware on the Viltrox to 1.4 fixed their problem, so made sure fw1.4 was on mine.  Still, if I leave the battery in the camera along the Viltrox attached and the ML SD card, the battery will be drained while the camera is off.

To test what the problem could be, I did the following:
- Camera Off, Viltrox w/50mm 1.8 attached, 64G ML SD Card inserted, I switched from AF to MF on Lens and back - led on camera flashes a few times = battery drain.
- Camera Off, Viltrox w/50mm 1.8 attached, NO ML SD Card inserted, I switched from AF to MF on Lens and back - NO led at all and battery keeps its charge.

Unfortunately, I do not have an EOS lens to test without the Viltrox.

Is there a menu setting that covers this? Sorry if this has already been covered before, but I am still reading through everything here.

Thanks.

It has nothing to do with the SD Card + ML. It's merely the Viltrox Focal Reducer that's causing the issue here (or a faulty battery). I haven't experienced the issue myself 'ever' and I own (x2) Viltrox Focal Reducers [EF-M2].

The battery draining issue caused by the Viltrox is identified here by other users of the adapter:
