I'm making a stop motion animation for a uni project and would like to connect my camera to my MB, so that the image is captured into the MB monitor. I studied animation about four years ago and the rostrum cameras we used were connected to Adobe Premier on a PC. Each tap of the space bar took a single frame. However I've not actually tried this myself on my own equipment. I have a Canon Ixus 40 digital camera and a Sony Digital 8 Handycam. Is it even possible for either of these camera? The Sony video camera does USB streaming but it is at a low quality and resolution which rules out that option. If not I can just capture using the camera alone. Much appreciated.
