Topic: Animation software COMPATIBLE WITH THE T3i!!

HEY i havn't been on here for a year!

SOO i got a Canon T3i to replace my 9000 to use for Live Action films and NOW (hopefully) for brickfilms. So IF I HALF TOO then i'll pay some money but im still trying to buy a zoom lens so money is scarce.

OK so basically on the iStopmotion supported camera list it says the T3i works on the pro version, but when i tried the free trail NOPE, NO LIVE CAPTURE!

Basically i need some help from people that have a T3i, or maybe know of some free/paid programs i can animate with.

AND BTW I HAVE A MAC!

Why's livecaptrue is so important, I be fine without some livecapture things. I just take the pictures and import them to Monkey Jam!

Having a live feed of your footage is important for checking framing, focus, colour, keeping camera bumps in check and a bunch of other stuff.

I would like to know the same thing. I just purchased the 1100D (Canon T3) I'm too cheap to buy DragonFrame, but I don't know of any other software compatible with Canon DSLR's.

Re: Animation software COMPATIBLE WITH THE T3i!!

Well, according to their website, Stop Motion Pro Action! HD (and all higher versions) has Live View support for Canon and Nikon DSLR's.  It is $185, though, so it's still pretty expensive, but it is cheaper than DragonFrame.

Re: Animation software COMPATIBLE WITH THE T3i!!

Yeah, I think you should get Stop Motion Pro.  It's got a buch of great tools, like in-program masking and onionskinning (that really comes in handy).  I use it, and I think it's worth the money.

EDIT: Oh, nevermind.

I've used Stop Motion Pro in the past, and I wouldn't use it again anyway. Dragonframe has been superior in every respect, in my experience.

Not anymore. EOS Utility sucks so much I can't comprehend it. Crashes every time I use it. Terrible. For that Star Wars video I used the Dragonframe trial. Anything else I've done with the T2i was shot without remote capture. (yes it was a T2i, my T3i hasn't arrived yet, so I've been borrowing the T2i from school)

I might give the Utility a try cause i'd just HATE to film with no capture software STRAIGHT from the camera with no way to watch the footage back with the correct fps.

Dragonframe is just WAY to expensive ESPECIALLY now that i make live action videos, because i have to put my money towards others lenses and reflectors and rigs.

Re: Animation software COMPATIBLE WITH THE T3i!!

There's honestly not much to be confused about. And if you are, their website has instructions and tutorials to help you along.

Give it a chance. I've animated several minutes worth of footage with it, and I can't imagine using anything else anymore...
