Insane!!
And look at this:

Good god man Canon fire your marketing droids!! The 5D3 would still be out of stock to this day if you had released doing all it could a year ago. Black Magic may have folded before even trying. Etc.

But man those Canon engineers. What amazing hardware! This is just awesome! 5D3 is pretty amazing in the end isn't it.

A (perhaps) stupid question. What software do you use to edit the raw video output? I'm very interested in installing this and giving it a go on my camera but my video experience is about nil.

The EosHD has a better, full description. It looks like you need to convert it with another tool into something that pulls the DNGs apart so that something like After Effects can pull them in as a sequence. See the Workflow section on the link.

yeah that which is basically:
1. make a folder and plop rawtodng.exe and the RAW video file into it
2. drag the RAW video file onto rawtodng.exe, wait a while
3. move the RAW video file and the rawtodng.exe to some other folder
4. start After Effects and then select Import -> multiple files and select the first DNG in the folder
5. then it will open up ACR and you adjust it up all as you wish
6. then it will open up the file dialog again and this time near the bottom right you select "import folder"
7. then it boom does that and automatically applies the same ACR settings to every frame
8. then you click on the that imported file set name near the upper left
9. then go to the menu and do export to render queue
10. then in the render que you can fiddle with the various options there if you wish (you need to at least set the output name style and then it asks for directory)
11. then you hit Render and then like 45 minutes later of your CPU burning up (for like 50 seconds of footage) you get a video file, maybe AVI lossless or maybe Cinemark or ProRes or something depending upon what codecs you have and select (using different HDs for buffers and out put and internal fast ones might speed this up, as might selecting more core usage, having faster computer, having 16GB of memory, etc.)
12. Then you can import that into Premiere and do whatever.

a bit slow in the stuff the computer does but in some ways it saves tweaking time since RAW+ACR have tons of power compared to video programs handling 8bit files

quality is crazy compared to the regular video it produces

You do get a bit more aliasing though so it's perhaps a touch more of a video-cam digital look than as filmic but OTOH all the detail isn't smeared away and it's much easier to control dynamic range and colors.

3. move the RAW video file and the rawtodng.exe to some other folder

Can I do these first three steps in Windows, and then perform the remaining steps on a Mac?

Presumably someone will develop a Mac version of rawtodng.exe in the next few months.

I'm still stunned by the possibilities here.

Slighly not safe for work, but hilarious with regard to the ML breakthrough...

Hitler finds out about ML breakthrough!!

I'll do you one better. Here is the raw2dng app compiled for mac. Same thing applies. Just drag your raw file and drop onto this app(after unzipping app of course) and it will create a folder wherever your raw file is with DNG's

Does anyone know if this kind of shooting could be possible on the 6D in the future?
By the way, fantastic job (again) to the ML team!  :D

Here is a comp making the rounds:
left is ML RAW video frame cap and right is without ML video frame cap (both are 100% crop crops)
