Hi everyone, is it now possible to make 16:9 48 or even 50 fps for slow motion?

Where is the mcm1080 48fps mode? I must have missed that one.

I must be missing a setting in here. How do I get my EOS-M to record MLV files in 4gb chunks rather than one large one?

I need to record an hour long interview and I am getting a 150gb file that I can't export in MLV App.

Format your card to FAT32 and you'll get chunks. For MLVApp it don't cares at all if you load chunks or one file. MLVApp works clip based, and the clip size is the same for both. There is no file size limit in MLVApp. Why can't you export? What exactly do you try?

I don't know why it fails after a few percent of progress. I've tried exporting in Prores, Prores Proxy, and H.265. I just reformated my card in FAT32 to see if that fixes it.

The application becomes non-responsive after about 4-10%. My computer can handle 4k editing and games (sometimes at the same time), so I don't think it's a performance issue with my hardware.

i look in my glass ball and guess you are using the Win64 version. Maybe try Win32 version.

That is too bad. Bigger files should be handled too so a little help here to try and narrow down the issue would be helpful. For instance. Did you try another converter? mlv_dump via Switch? Are you on mac by the way? If not, maybe try https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=10526.msg188435#msg188435

I've tried MLV App and MLVProducer (which gives an out of memory error when trying to open the file. I'll give it a shot with MLVFS if this attempt fails.

  I just bought the eos m and first thing i did was installing and trying to learn ML. So first of all a huge thanks to all developers and participants who is working on it. It gives many abilities to this tiny camera.

  My question is, when i connect my camera to capture card without ML i can get the liveview screen on my computer. But when i enable ML and connect with the same capture card to computer i just have a black screen. When i half press the shutter i get a 10x cropped glitchy image. I would be glad if there is anyone who has the same problem or has some solution to it.

Edit: I fixed the situation by switching camera mode to manual photo. Now i'm able to get 'clean hdmi'. Bu there is one more problem occured in this step.

  The hdmi live view is looking squashed from top and bottom and objects are looking wider than when i shot them in video mode. Is there a fix for it?

I only open 70 GB files on a desktop computer with windows 10 and 16 GB of RAM. Laptop with Windows 8 and 4 GB of RAM, unfortunately, does not open them. In both cases, I have a lot of disk space.

I don't have any experience myself, but I think I have seen quite some discussion about this in the MLV RAW ON EOS M facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/375018026655820

Hello everyone, yesterday i got myself a canon eos m for live streaming in a budget. I install ML on it and connected to my laptop via capture card.

The problem is, in the 'video mode' i can't get any feed from camera to my capture card but when i switch to 'manual photo' mode i'm able to see the camera screen on my capture device but with a weird aspect ratio (image looks 16:9 but like it's streched out to sides)

I'm trying to make live stream with the eos m but i couldn't figure out how to get at least 'okay' quality out of it.

First photo: Feed from Capture card to OBS
Second photo: Original photo taken by camera

I have 32gb RAM on this box and no joy, even after moving the files to an SSD.

Tty convert to dng with my linked windows workflow.
I select the options I want and try to run but the dialog just blinks and doesn't do anything. Same behavior when escalated to Admin.

Edit: Playing with things more this seems to be a memory/resource issue with MLV App. I can render segments of the MLV file with no issue, just not all 80000+ frames at once. I'll keep playing around with this to figure out where the sweet spot is.

I now recorded a 70GB clip (33752 frames) - the cam aborted recording there, more was not possible. I can open the file without any problem in MLVApp and process it. MLVApp needs around 700MB RAM and ffmpeg 800MB RAM. So no need at all for 8GB+ RAM. I don't think there is a difference for even bigger clips, because the clips are processed frame by frame. The used RAM is constant for the entire processing. The limit currently is at 2^64 frames... I think that is enough.
I strongly recommend to enable MAPP files in MLVApp for such big files!

Hi everyone!
Was trying to get some photos of the neowise comet with the EOS M and its working perfectly, if i zoom on the moon 10x and take a photo i don't get the zoomed version, is there a way/hack for this? i remember people talking here about using one of the croped video modes to take a photo and simulate the zoon effect? i tried but i might be missing something because it doesnt work.

Can anyone help?

Why not just crop it in post?

ML never had a crop mode in photo mode other than silent pic.

i was "talking" about the video modes, some of the modes have a zoom factor, i remember reading here or on a video on youtube that using that video mode already zoomed in together with 3x times zoom that helps focusing can create good photos but i dont see how to take a pic in video mode, i remember Danne writting about an 8bit option that when selected would enable the user to take a picture while in video mode.

Thanks for your help.

There´s no such thing as grabbing a still out of x10 zoom. You can crop a cr2 in post and achieve the same effect.
If you want to utilize movie modes as still images you can use 5k anamorphic flv but I don´t see why unless you want around 14fps bursts or similar.

Hi Walter and Danne, thanks for your help, unfortunally it was a long day at work and i'm unable to get the "right english" to explain my situation, bad day...no other way to put it, if any of you has admin rights in the forum please delete my last posts to avoid further confusion to new users, will try to explain it better tomorrow after a good night sleep.

As always...thanks.
