The Magic Lantern (formerly 5D Mark Free) software gets zebra stripes to show overexposed portions of the video. They are not recorded to the quicktime file.

With the announcement from Canon that full manual control is coming, the Magic Lantern project can start focusing on these sort of enhancements, rather than just manual exposure control.

    Hi Trammell,
    We are a small rental house in Southern California and we have created a few videos about some of the O'Connor gear (O-box and O-Focus) we use in our RED Scarlet/HDSLR camera packages. The videos are meant to help users better understand the relevance and intricacies of the gear. I have attached a link to one of the vides below hope you will enjoy it. thanks

Heads up: the shoutbox will be retiring soon. It’s tired of working, and can’t wait to relax. You can still send a message to the channel owner, though!
