I must be missing something.  I downloaded and updated my 50D to the latest nightly build today.  How does one access the video feature?

This means you should access Modules tab, activate MLV_REC.mo, restart your cam, access video tab and configure your settings to start movie recording.

If you are referring to some sort of ML menu within the camera...there is none.

visiono,

This shows you the max bitrate your camera can write, and this shows you what the required bitrate is for (any given flavor of) raw video. The difference between these two numbers is what will fill up your buffer until it runs out of space and then the recording will stop. I don't know what your buffer size is, though. Might be easier to just try it.

Patience is a virtue. Simply.... Once ML is installed, press the Trash can button to bring up the magic lantern Menu. To access the Video Modes, you must first start Live View, then load the "mlvrec.mo" module from the modules menu, then re-start the camera. Once the camera is back on, start Live View once again and you should have ML Raw ready to shoot. Set FPS overwrite first in the video menu.

...or Just follow this:

No patience, no willing to inderstand: no real interest. Even know what ML is. It's only a waste of time.

hi guys I started shooting with an anamorphic adapter, I notice when I switch the display to 2:1 the focus peaking no longer works correctly, there are two lines of dots on the screen.

In my experience most time fringing is brought on by the lens

You probably need to turn on exposure simulation

Hello everyone - I'm new here and to the whole concept of magic lantern, probably about to get slaughtered for this question.
I'm interested in videoing macro using the 50D but am a little concerned about the warnings of damage and bricking.
Is there much of a likelihood or is that just a fairly standard arrse covering get out clause, really can't afford to brick my 50D

Thanks to all and really interesting site. Oh and I have tried searching for a thread etc to cover this, and have read a lot of other interesting threads as a result so do forgive me if I appear to be being a lazy bugger

No problems Swarmcatcher. You are welcome. Don't worry: if you follow the few warnings, specifically the ones that say to use full battery to eventually upgrade firmware if needed and to wait before opening the memory slot, then you are ok. No worries to brick 50d with ml: it's a real workhorse! Go with peace of mind and enjoy this marvelous piece of software hack! ;-)
