  1. this app supports the .mlv files and its 90 days free of use 


    here is some tutorial




    This short tutorial explains how you can quickly create looks in Cyan, Magenta and Yellow using the "3 stripes" method (quiet similar to the "Technicolor 3 stripes process"). This is also the occasion to have a quick look at how Blending modes can be used in a color grading context.
    Now it's your time to explore and experiment !

    MLV+Audio Native play in new version off ASSIMILATE Scratch

    Also posted today on the Magic Lantern forums…


    MLV+Audio Native play in new version off ASSIMILATE Scratch

    I had the confirmation today from one member of the assimilate team, that they implemented the mlv+audio playback in their software.

    so you can consider this is a good standart !

    for those who dont know >



    assimilate is a grading tool not a viewer,

    it means native read of the .mlv file + audio import and grading. not only viewer …

    ASSIMILATE went on the 4th innovation rank on the NAB 2014.

    So it seems Magic Lantern is becoming more and more mainstream!

  3. GH4 sharpness kills it!! But like the colours of 5dMk3!


    Great post Andrew thank you for that.


    As the ex owner of GH3 i know what u saying about ergonomics and handling, but after going on canon 5dmk3 with some L lenses i was experiencing whole new universe of full frame and 14bit raw although post-process (editing - space on HHDs and few  kpb CF cards- and new computer suited for workflow) i also know what u saying about menage the RAW files.. so very good article !!!


    kinda wants me to grab one GH4 and have both worlds! :D


    Cheers and Peace 

  4. I have buy 70-200mm F4L a week ago for like 400$ used from a friend who claims he made like 500 pics with this lens. And i can say it is a good and sharp lens for photo outdoors (did not try indoors yet), maybe you will miss IS but focusing works great.


    As for video you will need a tripod or movi for stabilized shoots ;D


    Also good thing is that the lens is not heavy.


    But like Andrew says look for Canon 80-200mm F2.8L, i will cuz i will use it manly for video and f2.8 for low light.


    Here are some pictures made with 70-200mm F4L.http://ergozjeci.smugmug.com/Photography/

  5. nice work, but i think some of the footage have a lot of noise (5dmk3) ..



    thnx for share i will back you up cuz i know how much work you put into this.


     Cheers and keep up the good work

  6. From Magic lantern forum a1ex:


    It's out!


    Not alpha, not beta, nor zeta, just a bleeding edge that happens to work for me. It might work for you or it might not.


    (note that my standards are fairly high, so what I call bleeding edge, others may call semi-stable or







    - bootflag issue solved!
    - installation is really easy (simply unzip the files on the card, update firmware and you are ready to go)
    - uninstallation is equally easy (update firmware and follow the instructions)




    1) Format the card from the camera.
    2) Make sure you are running Canon firmware 1.2.3.
    3) Copy ML files on the card and run Firmware Update.

    1) Run Firmware Update from your ML card.
    2) Follow the instructions.

    What's hot:
    - bootflag issue solved! (p.s. some bloggers got it wrong, you still enable it in the camera, but you can disable it by uninstalling)
    - installation is really easy (simply unzip the files on the card, update firmware and you are ready to go)
    - uninstallation is equally easy (update firmware and follow the instructions)
    - EosCard is now optional
    - ML restores itself after formatting the card (man, that komputerbay card is fast!)
    - you may install on any card combination you may think of.

    What's not:
    - unlike most firmware updates which fix minor things, this one changed a LOT, especially on the display side (for example, LiveView is now quad-buffered and most of the display registers were changed).
    - watch out for corrupted frames (from my limited testing, I'm not fully convinced the issue is fully resolved on 1.2.3 => for serious video use, please consider staying on 1.1.3)
    - fast zebras not working, but can be fixed
    - no full-screen magic zoom (I never used it anyway, but was nice)
    - no brightness/contrast/saturation adjutments (registers changed)
    - HDMI issues (possibly worse than 113, didn't try yet)
    - no documentation (yet).

    For photo use (raw overlays, ETTR and so on) it should be just fine (that's how I use it).

    Source code:
    - the 5D3-123 branch in the main repository.
    - feel free to merge it locally with unified or experimental branches to get a sneak peek for the future updates.
    - I'll merge it to unified when I'll be confident it's at least as good as the 1.1.3 branch (based on your feedback).

    Thanks to:
    - chris_overseas for initial porting and testing
    - horshack for advice about safely toggling the bootflag
    - Audionut for early builds and support in the early porting thread
    - marekk, pompeiisneaks, jpaana, rufustfirefly, sinubis and others for early feedback and small fixes
    - mk11174 for getting the 700D port in sync in this one
    - everyone else who volunteeres their time to make a great community project.

    Final notes:
    check nightly builds often and stay up to date! I'll do my best to make sure there are no critical issues in the nightly builds.
    - there are quirks and bugs waiting to be fixed (please report them properly, with details on how to reproduce).
    - grab the ARM toolchain and start hacking! (start with something easy or just tweak/fix whatever you find interesting).
    If anything goes wrong, we don't pay for repairs. Use Magic Lantern at your own risk!

    coming soon: a lot of stuff, including a real sensor upgrade, a C compiler that runs on your camera and other geeky stuff like this




  7. Like the movie, well done


    may i ask what lenses did you use and what other equip... and also i can imagine your DnxHD files were HUGEEEE and export in AE took hours or days :D ... how did your computer cope with those huge files from RAW2 cdng s ... whats specs workflow ( pc + AE only) or Davinci and so on ,,, I can imagine how slow is on USB 2.0 cuz in USB 3.0 its rly fast

  8. ok so i recorded my first RAW samples with 5D3 + ML!!..HAPPY!!!!  



    Now the post proces i work on



    1. RAW2DNG to convert to dng

    2. new project and composition in AE + rendering 

    3. Editing in Premiere Pro and export to final 

    4: Upload to youtube or to Vimeo


    PS: ATM reading first edition

    The EOSHD 5D Mark III Raw Shooter’s Guide

    What do you guys use to proces RAW to final Vimeo trip? 


    Thank you

  9. I have 2 256GB SSD`s to run the OS and my softwares - inside the notebook.


    To store stuff I use external HDDs (7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s), and they are more than enough!


    With that setup I can handle every single video file from the BM, RED, ALEXA etc

    Can you be so kind and tell us your specs of your laptop.. the model ram gpu and cpu as well as the storage drives... are they 1Tb or 3tB  and the workflow of your editing softwares (i think you running a PC not Apple) so you prolly don t use a FCPX .. Thank you

  10. What exactly is confusing you? 


    As a general rule of thumb, when you're doing something relatively heavy work like video editing on a computer, the mightier the machine the better. All the rest is up to you, your personal preferences, your budget and your personal taste. Make up your own mind based on those, don't let (or expect) other people (to) make it for you.


    All the options mentioned, like a Mac Pro, 27-inch (or smaller) iMac, a mighty PC, etc. are feasible candidates, you just pick one that's most to your liking and is a best fit to your existing system. If you're a Mac guy with some existing OS X apps and stuff, go for an iMac or Mac Pro. If you're a Windows guy with Windows apps, go for a PC. Simple, isn't it.


    As for the Hackintosh, I for one wouldn't recommend that as a serious tool for serious (paid) work or as a long-term reliable editing platform. Unless you're a hardcore nerd who loves to hack and tinker the hardware and software for the sake of it, and use the machine for your personal entertainment only, not for any business purposes. 


    The PC hardware is ok, but I'd rather go for Windows and Vegas, Adobe Premiere etc. Or choose a real Mac with FCPX (or Premiere, etc). But if a Hackintosh, the KEXT tinkering and stuff fancies you, well, it's up to you.


    As for the Mac mini, I wouldn't put it quite as B/W as Andrew did above, but obviously a mini is not an ideal machine to buy for video editing.


    However, if you already happen to own a latest generation Mac mini and you wish to buy FCPX and start editing videos, there is no good reason why you shouldn't just buy FCPX. Basic editing is quite doable with it, with enough memory, just a bit slower.


    Of course a mightier iMac, let alone a Mac Pro, would be better and faster, but the point is, you can start with your existing mini, and use it to earn money for a mightier machine, like the iMac, by doing great films, for example.

    It ain't about the gear, but how you use them, right?  B)


    I hope this helps with the confusion. 

    Quirky first sorry for my bad english.


     I am not a professional DOP nor movie maker. I just want to explore the benefits from fantastic 5Dmk3 and ML 14 Bit RAW for no payed work just for enthusiastic work to pleasure my soul. In that order i want to have a smooth experience in post production since RAW workflow take a specific way to do that, i want a computer that can handle those operation as smooth as possible and since i am not a Oil mogul or not living in rich UAE country i do care if i spend 2-3k $ on a computer(apple or PC) and then realize that i made mistake with buying a laggy system which can barley process RAW workflow in post.


    I have apple products all my life (powerbook / Power Mac / macbook pro / ipad / iphone...  as well a PC user all my life.. so for me its is not a problem of what System or Platform i will use. I just want to know if its worth to pay 2.5K for  new iMac or its better to get a PC with the right parts for 2K + 2x dell U2412M monitors for the same price..


    The question is what system will bring better/faster results for processing RAW video in Post Production for about the same money and on some low/medium budget of 2-3k $.. so that i will not consume a lot of my time in post i rather go out and shoot.


    And since a lot of you people already work with those huge RAW files and i want hear from experts what do you recommend, what not to buy ...or what would you go on with.


    as for software i have try almost every program and i do not have any problems (Final Cut Pro, Vegas, avid, Adobe premiere CS, Lightroom, PS and so on ...)


    Would like to try Davinci Resolve LUT ..


    After i will get used to workflow ( with portable usb 3.0 HDD in my back pack  to transfer raw data from cf cards to HDD) and with some easy rig i will make some short 2-3 minute movies, and some Demo reels for my channel .


    thank you
