Calling All Beta Testers! iStopMotion Now Supports Live Preview for Canon DSLRs!

by Megan -

Happy Monday! We've got some exciting news for all you animators out there. Remember when, in the past, you wanted to use iStopMotion with a Canon DSLR camera? You had to do without the greatest feature of iStopMotion – the live preview and semi transparent onion skinning effect that allows you to see your next shot and make adjustments before capturing the frame.

Well, not any more! With the next version of iStopMotion, we are adding live preview for Canon DSLR cameras!

We invite you to download and try the latest beta and let us know what you think.

What Canon DSLRs Are Supported?

We have tested the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, 5D Mark III, 40D, 60D, 60Da, 450D (aka. Rebel XSi / Kiss X2), 550D (aka. Rebel T2i / Kiss X4) and 700D (aka. Rebel T5i / Kiss X7i). Other models that have live view over USB should work as well. Please let us know using the Feedback command in the iStopMotion menu if your Canon DSLR model is not working properly or if you find other areas for improvement.

Nikon user? We haven't forgotten about you! We're currently hard at work to add support for live view with Nikon DSLRs - we'll keep you updated on the progress.
