Magic Lantern on a Mac (with homebrew)

Here how I did to install all MagicLantern tools on my Lion system with homebrew instead of macport (too many failed port for having all working).

Basic UtilitiesEdit

NOTE: you can skip a lot of step using the prepare.Lion.sh script (post feedback please) We first need to install some basic utilities to be able to have all things working.

  • XCode4 (NOTE: XCode 4.3: Command Lines Tools is now an optional install. You’ll need to enable under Preferences > Downloads.)
    • downloadable from AppStore here .
  • Homebrew (to install various packages easily)
    • from Terminal use this code to install it:
ruby -e "$(curl -f​sSL https://raw.github.com/Homebrew/homebrew/go/install)"

Downloading Magic Lantern source and toolsEdit

To have the most updated version for scripts and tools, and to be able to compile ML first we need to get the source code using mercurial.

From Terminal install mercurial with homebrew and then download the sources in home dir:

brew install mercurial;
cd ~/;
hg clone https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern;

-or-

Install mercurial from the link here: /http://mercurial.selenic.com/

Summon Arm toolchain installEdit

To use the summon arm toolchain script from ML something has to be installed:

curl -O http://www.ellert.se/PKGS/libusb-2011-10-29/10.7/libusb.pkg.tar.gz
tar -xvf libusb.pkg.tar.gz
sudo installer -pkg libusb.pkg -target /
  • Ad then some other stuff with homebrew:
​brew install binutils gmp mpfr libmpc wget
  • Now it's time to start the summon arm script:
cd ~/magic-lantern/toolchain/;
sudo summon-arm;

Wait until finished.

Lion Compliling IssueEdit

You need to make some changes to ~/magic-lantern/src/Makefile.inc to compile on Lion (a patch is ready but needs more tester).

add -mlong-calls\ under CFLAGS=\

Example:

CFLAGS=\
	$(FLAGS) \
	-Os \
	-Wall \
	-W \
	-mstructure-size-boundary=32 \
	-Wno-unused-parameter \
	-Wno-implicit-function-declaration \
	-Wno-unused-function \
	-Wno-missing-field-initializers \
	-Wno-format \
	-std=gnu99 \
	-D__ARM__ \
	-I$(PLATFORM_INC) \
	-I$(SRC_DIR) \
	-mlong-calls\

Compiling Magic Lantern optionsEdit

After the toolchain is installed you can compile ML for a specific camera with:

cd ~/magic-lantern/;
make 600D;

for the 600D.

After compilation you will find your autoexec.bin in ~/magic-lantern/platform/600D.102/ for example.

Other options are:

all : to make an autoexec.bin that supports all models;

clean : to remove some stuff used in previous compiling;

zip : to make a full zip with all needed stuff not only the autoexec.bin

Make a card bootableEdit

Format the card with the camera (needs to be called EOS_DIGITAL) and then use this as script from your mac:

#! /bin/bash  
# patch the SD/CF card bootsector to make it bootable on Canon DSLR
# See http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,4214.0.html
#     http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_Allocation_Table#Boot_Sector

# change this on linux
dev=/dev/sdb1

# Fix for osx, auto detects the card if formatted incamera before using this script
if [[ $OSTYPE == darwin* ]]; then
  dev=/dev/$(diskutil list | grep EOS_DIGITAL | awk '{print $6}' )
  echo $dev
  diskutil unmount $dev
fi

# read the boot sector to determine the filesystem version
DEV32=`dd if=$dev bs=1 skip=82 count=8`
DEV16=`dd if=$dev bs=1 skip=54 count=8`
if [ "$DEV16" != 'FAT16   ' -a "$DEV32" != 'FAT32   ' ]; then
  echo "Error: "$dev" is not a FAT16 or FAT32 device"
  echo "Format your card in camera before using this script on Osx"
  echo debug $dev $DEV16 $DEV32
  exit
fi
if [ "$DEV16" = 'FAT16   ' ]; then
  offset1=43
  offset2=64
  FS='FAT16'
elif [ "$DEV32" = 'FAT32   ' ]; then
  offset1=71
  offset2=92
  FS='FAT32'
else
  echo "Error: "$dev" is not a FAT16 or FAT32 device"
  exit
fi
echo "Applying "$FS" parameters on "$dev" device:"
echo " writing EOS_DEVELOP at offset" $offset1 "(Volume label)"
echo EOS_DEVELOP | dd of="$dev" bs=1 seek=$offset1 count=11
echo " writing BOOTDISK at offset" $offset2 "(Boot code)"
echo BOOTDISK | dd of="$dev" bs=1 seek=$offset2 count=8

422 to JPG conversion with Phyton script [DRAFT]Edit

To be able to use the 422-jpg.py script we need numpy and PIL:

cd ~/magic-lantern/; #go to ML source folder
wget https://raw.github.com/fonnesbeck/ScipySuperpack/master/install_superpack.sh; #download installer script for numpy
sudo bash install_superpack.sh; #install numpy
brew install pil;  #install PIL

Cropmarks .bmp to RLE compression [DRAFT]Edit

to be added.

Ruby script

​#!/usr/bin/env ruby
if ARGV.count!=1 then
  puts "Usage: "+__FILE__+" [filename]"
  exit
end

File.open(ARGV[0],"rb") do |f|
  File.open(ARGV[0]+".rle","wb+") do |out|
    sign = f.read(2)
    header = f.read(52).unpack("V*")
    palette = nil
    palette = f.read(header[2]-54) if header[2]-54>0
    data = f.read(header[8]).unpack("C*")
    width = header[4]
    height = header[5]

    newdata = []
    count = 0
    color = 0
    x = 0
    data.each do |d|
      if x==0 then
        color = d
	count = 0
      end
      if d == color and count<255 then
      	count+=1
      else
        newdata << count
	newdata << color
	count = 1
	color = d
      end
      x+=1
      if x==width then
        x = 0
	newdata << count
	newdata << color
	newdata << 0
	newdata << 0
      end
    end
    newdata << 0
    newdata << 1

    header[0] = newdata.length + 54 + (palette.nil? and 0 or palette.length)
    header[7] = 1 #set compression to RLE8
    header[8] = newdata.length
    out.print "BM"
    out.print header.pack("V*")
    out.print palette unless palette.nil?
    out.print newdata.pack("C*")
  end
end

HDR Photo fusion with enfuse [DRAFT]Edit

  1. Install enfuse/enblend for mac download here;
  2. or use terminal:
  3. ​wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/enblend/enblend-enfuse/enblend-enfuse-4.0/enblend-enfuse-4.0-mac.tar.gz;
tar xvfz enblend-enfuse-4.0-mac.tar.gz;
cp enblend-enfuse-4.0-mac/enfuse /usr/bin/;
cp enblend-enfuse-4.0-mac/enblend /usr/bin/;

  1. Use the script in the card
  2. (to be added more info).

HDR Video workflow (with enfuse and mplayer) [DRAFT]Edit

  1. If you don't have yet done it (for photo HDR fusion), install enfuse/enblend for mac download here;
  2. Install mplayer:
brew install mplayer;
  1. Copy the video in a folder and use this as script to convert it (by Ro-Man from Vimeo ML group )
#!/bin/bash

processFrames() {
noframes=`ls *.png | wc -l`
echo "$noframes frames extracted..."
n=0
for i in `seq 1 2 $noframes`; do
in1=`printf "%08d.png" "$i"`
in2=`printf "%08d.png" "$((i+1))"`
out=`printf "out%08d.jpg" "$n"`
echo "creating HDR frame $out from $in1 and $in2 ..."
enfuse --compression=95 -o $out $in1 $in2
let n++
done
rm *.png
}
encodeVideo() {
# 2 stage encoding with mpreg4 codec, settings from mencoder wiki
# optimal_bitrate = (40..60) * 25 * width * height / 256
opts="vbitrate=12150000:mbd=2:keyint=132:v4mv:vqmin=3:vlelim=-4:vcelim=7:lumi_mask=0.07:dark_mask=0.10:naq:vqcomp=0.7:vqblur=0.2:mpeg_quant"
mencoder mf://./out*.jpg -mf w=1920:h=1080:fps=15:type=jpg -oac copy -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vpass=1:$opts -o /dev/null

rm out*.jpg
}

mplayer -vo png:z=1 $1

exit
