.DNG files from 7D RAW looks horrible in Lite

Hi,

I'm trying to learn a workflow to create proxies with Lite and then round trip then through NLE and grade.


However, when I add the .dng's to my Media Pool, they look horrendous:




If I import my .dng's to After Effects, they look normal, and the RAW-window opens up as usual.

Any ideas?

Kind Regards,

Johan

Hmmm.. Must have been an issue when conforming to .dng. I used some third party thing before, now I tried RAWMagic and it works now.

However, I realize that my clips have some artifacts on some frames..


Looks like this:



Kind Regards,

Johan

On the occasions when I'm forced to use 7D or 5D footage, I request the editor convert the footage to ProRes 422 log first. It's still an 8-bit format, so (IMHO) Raw is not gonna make a helluva lotta difference.

Some good advice on the EOSHD site here:

Note that I've worked on a few fairly high-budgeted TV shows that have slipped in 7D footage and we were able to match it to much more-costly cameras -- in small doses, all with a ProRes workflow.

i might be wrong, but i think when shooting raw
you have much more than 8bit...

If you are shooting with Magic Lantern Raw you have in fact 14 bit RAW.

[Warren Eig] "If you are shooting with Magic Lantern Raw you have in fact 14 bit RAW."
Whatever it is, it looks crappy to me. Not a fan of DSLRs, particularly the rolling shutter and noisy blacks issue. And I've seen that with the 5D, 7D, and whatever else is out there. Toy cameras.

Marc, I guess you haven't seen the footage from the newly released Magic Lantern firmware for the 5D Mark iii. Prior to this the camera could only shoot RAW stills. This is a whole different ball game. Now would it be my go to camera of choice, no, not when I can shoot 35mm or Alexa or Red, but the RAW out of this camera is clean.

"Newly released" I might believe, but the last 7D project I saw in December was crappy. I'll say this: it looks better in many ways than a $50,000 Ikegami standard-def camera did in 1995.

You can't compare the 7D to the 5D Mark iii.

They're still toy cameras. I'll grade the footage, but only under protest.
