Magic Lantern is a firmware add-on for Canon digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras and the EOS M. It adds features for DSLR filmmaking and still photography, and is free and open-source. The most important feature of ML is the ability to shoot video in RAW. Fast CinemaDNG Processor can read and process Magic Lantern MLV files directly, without MLVFS or any other software.

Fast CinemaDNG Processor software could work as a transcoder or converter for MLV files from Canon cameras. This is important issue to offer further footage editing. We can do not only transcoding, we've implemented crop, trim, audio files extraction, etc. Smooth real time preview is a must to give the user an opportunity to see processed footage before transcoding.

MLV converter features

  • Support of standard MLV files, including spanned files
  • Realtime MLV processing and preview for compressed and uncompressed files
  • Crop and trim
  • Export of audio file from MLV
  • MLV preprocessing on GPU
  • MLV to DNG / CDNG / CinemaDNG convertion (uncompressed DNG or CDNG, CinemaDNG with lossless JPEG compression, lossy CinemaDNG RAW 3:1, 4:1 and 5:1)
  • MLV to TIFF, MLV to JPG, MLV to EXR, MLV to JP2 (expected soon)
  • MLV to Apple ProRes 422 LT, 422, 422 HQ, 4444, 4444 XQ
  • MLV to video: MLV to MP4

Apart from conventional MLV workflow, where we need to convert MLV to DNG sequence, then to create proxies for further processing and color grading, now we can also do all these things at the same pipeline, because we don't need neither DNG nor proxies for MLV processing, everything could be done on GPU in realtime, starting from RAW MLV to final color corrected video at full resolution.

Full version of that pipeline is implemented in Fast CinemaDNG Processor software. Please visit www.fastcinemadng.com to download the software.

MLV (Magic Lantern Raw Video format) 'converter' that uses FUSE to allow 'mounting' of MLV files as filesystems. Having trouble showing that directory. Normally, you'd see the directory here, but something didn't go right. Currently we’ve just built a prototype version of the kext. We still have a lot of work left to make it full-featured, robust, performant, diagnosable, and production ready. We also plan to do quite a bit of cleanup and refactoring in the GVFS user mode codebase, to allow that same code to run on Mac using.NET Core. Under Mac OS X, you would use newfstype as the command, where type is one of hfs, msdos, exfat or udf. There are man pages for all of these. As the other answer mentions, you can use diskutil to create filestems but by using the newfs variants you can set specific filesystem parameters unavailable via diskutil.

Fast MLV Player and Viewer on GPU

Magic Lantern is a firmware for Canon EOS M and DSLR cameras. It is free and open-source. The most important feature of Magic Lantern is the ability to shoot raw video.

Mlvfs For Mac

Magic Lantern is capable to add 4K RAW mode to Canon 5D Mark III. Basically, it's raw 14-bit format, uncompressed or with lossless JPEG compression. At the moment 5D Mark III has the following modes: 4096 × 1440 at 25 fps; 4096 × 2560 at 12.5 fps and 3840 × 1600 at 24 fps. There are also some additional HD video options like 1920 × 800 at 60 fps and square-crop-video mode.

What are main disadvantages of current solutions to play MLV files?

Mlvfs For Mac Os

  • One have to convert MLV to DNG, which is time consuming
  • One can utilize mlvrawviewer / mlvfs / mlv_dump, but these methods are quite complicated and slow
  • Full raw video processing pipeline on CPU is slow, even at MLVP and MLV App
  • Smooth playback is mostly limited by insufficient debayer performance (Amaze demosaicing algorithm on CPU is good, though not fast)
  • One can utilize Davinci Resolve for debayering on GPU, but it can't work with MLV files directly
  • Long time to prepare video (ProRes / MP4) out of MLV / RAW

Fast CinemaDNG Processor can process Magic Lantern raw video files directly, there is no need in MLVFS or any other software. On NVIDIA GPU we can work with MLV very fast due to parallel implementation of all raw image processing algorithms. To load MLV file, you just need to click with right button on the file at Windows Explorer and run Fast CinemaDNG Processor software via context menu or you can drag-n-drop .MLV file to player / viewer window. We can get smooth MLV playback, as soon as we perform realtime processing on NVIDIA GPU. To solve the task of high quality grading with 3D LUT, there is an interoperability with external 3DLUT Creator software. Lots of options for output video encoding are available at Fast CinemaDNG Processor due to external FFmpeg.

What we can do for fast MLV processing on GPU

  • MLV file import, parsing, decoding for single MLV and audio, including spanned files support (multi-file option)
  • Focus pixels removal
  • MLV viewer and MLV player with full processing pipeline on GPU
  • Wavelet-based denoising for MLV files
  • MLV post processing with DCP profiles
  • Undistortion with LCP profiles
  • Realtime MLV grading with 3D LUT
  • Smooth video output to the monitor
  • Export MLV to DNG (uncompressed DNG or CDNG, lossless JPEG compression, lossy BMD RAW 3:1, 4:1 and 5:1)
  • MLV converter: MLV to TIFF/JPG/EXR export, MLV to MP4 export with external FFmpeg, MLV to MJPG (AVI)
  • Export MLV to ProRes 422 LT, 422, 422 HQ, 4444, 4444 XQ
  • Export of processed video from MLV (mlv to movie)

Mlvfs For Mac Mojave

To summarize, one can emphasize the most important features of Fast CinemaDNG Processor software for realtime MLV video processing on NVIDIA GPU: native support of MLV file format, fast MLV decoding on CPU, high quality debayering, realtime denoising, DCP and LCP profiles support, 3D LUT (RGB and HSV), smooth MLV playback up to 4K, export options (MLV to cDNG or MLV to ProRes), etc. Here you can find more info about licensing and how to buy the software.

Third-party software for better MLV processing

  • FFmpeg - zeranoe.com
  • 3DLUT Creator - 3dlutcreator.com

Mlvfs For Mac Catalina

You can download and install that third-party software, then set correct path (dialog Options) and interoperability with FFmpeg and 3DLUT Creator will be established.
