  1. You essentially need to convert Rec709 to BMDFilm. Look into either Cinelog and OpenColorIO, which will allow you to do this OR if you are simply trying to work with a "log" like image, look online for a video to log LUT.
  2. The playback is because the files are such large quality and your diskcpu cannot play them back quickly enough. If you try and play them in VLC or even better in an NLE, it SHOULD play back properly. I also have the EXACT same issue playing back in QT. If its stopping at one specific file, there is likely an issue with that file. If its stopping randomly, I would drop a comment in the MLRawViewr forum, but I've also had some luck pausing and un-pausing the conversion. I recall having some issues where I thought it wasnt converting due to the percentage, so I paused it but when I un-paused it it continued. Hope that helps! I dont always check this forum, so if you have any further questions and it seems like Im not getting to it, please feel free to comment straight on the article, tweet @cineticstudios, or drop by our facebook page w the question.
  3. Hey Wolf33d, I figured I'd jump in as I wrote the article originally referenced. Many thanks for sharing it here and I'm glad you found it helpful. That ProRes444 workflow retains the majority of the detail (99%) present in the RAW images, HOWEVER you just lose the ability to adjust color temperature and exposure of the raw files. With that being said, the files are such high quality, these files are such high quality, you can really correct almost any issue you can using RAW files, it will just take slightly longer (taking a few minutes, nothing crazy). On the other end, working with native RAW files requires significantly more storage and renders way slower (1-2 fps unless you have a very fast RAID). Should you want to, you can make corrections to exposure and color temp in MLRawViewer, but I usually just converted the files straight over to ProRes444. You can apply Filmconvert directly to the "flat" ProRes file and start coloring from there. The only reason you'd want to go through Resolve is if you MUST use the BMDFilm color space, which is what QuickHitRecord had mentioned. While I've also used this method (and recommend it for other uses), it has a couple of additional steps so I did not include that in the walk through. My goal with the article was to provide the easiest method to get the highest quality files so you can get straight to edit and color correction without spending hours on the forums.
  4. Ugh!! THat horrendous rolling shutter. So much that it literally kills the camera.
