mac question please respond

Okay ya'll,

I am trying to help a friend get their animation program to work with their camera.
They are using Istop Motion and have a PowerShot A75.

When the program opens it does not recognize the camera, also the camera does not mount on the hard drive when it is plugged in.

WHAT THE HELL IS PTP MODE.......SHE HAS BEEN TOLD THAT HER CAMERA NEEDS TO BE IN PTP MODE but even the manual says nothing about this.

maybe this is a shot in the dark.

howdy ya'll.



  • here is a link explaining what PTP mode is but i do not think it gets you any closer to a solution :

  • The A75 is on the supported cameras list, so i don't see why it isn't working. Things you might want to check:
    battery power might be low; take photos in manual mode rather than automatic (or vice versa); make sure there is a memory card in the camera; um... that's about all i can suggest without being there ...

  • I played around with iStopMotion when it first came out. I think you can use it to assemble high resolution stop motion made with digital cameras, however, most digital cameras don't offer a standard way to view and control what they are looking at from a computer. In this iStopMotion help page, using a still camera is discussed. Basically, you take a bunch of photos, upload them to your computer and then drag and drop them onto the iStopMotion timeline. This isn't really any better than Flash or other ways (although cheaper).

    iStopMotion's strength is when you use a video camera or a webcam like an iSight. Video cameras with a Firewire connection allow you to import the video feed directly into the computer. iStopMotion allows you to preview what the frame with look like, complete with a translucent version of the previous frame transposed over it so you can make just the right movements.
