Magic Lantern, Canon - Comparing 2 images split screen (before and after)
show user profile  9krausec
Sorry for the cryptic title.. Didn't really know what to put there!

I am going out on a shoot which is the after of the before and after portion of a house renovation. I am trying to figure out if there is a better way to take the same after shot as the before shot than printing out small images of the before shot and eyeballing during the shoot?

I remember when I was installing Magic Lantern on my t3i, some of the calibration steps evolved cutting the live view screen in half diagonally to seemingly compare two images.

Does anyone know how I can do this with my canon? To view an already taken image on half the screen to align my current shot up (the live view display) with that previous shot to take a spot on photo? Since I suck at describing, here is an image below-

Is this even possible? What would some pros on the forum suggest doing to make sure I align the image up super closely?

EDIT: I am able to get split screen to compare 2 images already taken. Just would be nice to get split screen to compare an image already taken to the live view.. Hmmm

localized time dilation field around a tripod.

you can do this fairly easily by putting a calculator inside a jar of magnets and then dividing by zero on it. you could also try multiplying by the square root of -1 to take the after shot before you've started.

its how I would do it anyway, there might be a nice software solution I haven't thought of

He who says it cannot be done is interrupting the man doing it.

haha, thanks for that Jareau.

I found a way that isn't exactly what I want (actually probably better)! After mashing a bunch of buttons w/ ML I was able to figure out how to "Ghost" an image that is semi transparent over the live view window.

So that'll work perfectly! If I even need to build a time machine though, you'll be the first person I talk to about it.
