Sparks in the dark

This short clip was made entirely from Raw footage (Magic Lantern, ML) shot with a Canon 5D Mk III. I also used the crop function which so nicely works with ML. The moon towards the end of the clip was shot with a f/4.0 70-200 mm L IS and a crop factor of 10x. For the landscape shots the FPS override function of ML was used, thus enabling slower shutter speed than 1/33.
As can be seen, ML with Raw allows for breathtaking footage not possible with the normal h.264 codec. The Raw material was then converted into DNGs, rendererd into clips with After Effects CS6 and finally edited with Premiere Pro CS6. The work process is certainly longer, but well worth the effort if circumstances warrant.

Enjoy the colors and the sparks of the fire in darkness!
