      The "Tool bar" is located below the movie view in the window. Once you selected your camera in the top right corner you should be able to switch on the live view in the tool bar below the view area. What camera model are you using?

    I am having a terrible time getting my perfect slide show -well on my Mac - to play completely on tv. Plays first 3/4 fine and then nothing. Plays fine on computers. I have used iDVD. Toast. I have wasted ten DVDs. And of course funeral I'm using for is today. What could be happening? Thanks!!!!

      @Kkw918: Before you burn DVDs I would recommend that you check the exported video file on your computer as well. "and then nothing" means "all the screen is black"? Are you using movies in your slideshow?

  • hello achim, where are the raw files being stored? when I save the project file it is being saved as a quicktime on my computer. NOT as a folder of images, both compressed and raw. please advise. I will want to process out the hi res raw files and make sure that they are updated in istopmotion to get the highest resolution final export. Is this an option? I am a professional photographer and teaching a class on stop motion, and need to know how to tell students to do this vs a lower resolution output.

      Hi, sorry for let you wait with my answer: The images are stored in raw format inside the QuickTime file. You can use the "Edit in external Editor..." feature for each single frame to let iStopMotion export a uncompressed file to a temp folder and open the editor (e.g. PhotoShop), once the external editor saves the file and you switch back to iStopMotion, the file gets reimported, still uncompressed. You can export all the images also uncompressed if you need to.
  • Hi, Have enjoyed using FotoMagico 4 on my iMac and Macbook Air. Last night on the Air, I saved a file using a different name. For some reason, the program was unable to locate the original files. It was late so I just tried to close the program. In doing so, FotoMagico froze, not only itself but the computer as well. It won't let me restart the computer because it requires me to quit FotoMagico first, but I can't do that because it's frozen. Any suggestions?

      FotoMagico 4.4 isn't available through the MacApp-Store yet. Apple always need some time until they approve the app to be ok for the App Store. We are awaiting the approval within the next days. Once it is approved you should be able to update the app via the "App Store" app by Apple. Thank you for your patience!

    Mentioning someone in a discussion (like this: @Name) is a great way to encourage dialog and let them know who you’re talking to.

  • Need help. Posted this message last week with no response.
    I am using a white iMac running OSX 10.6.8.
    I purchased a Mini DVI to S-Video/AV Adapter. I plugged this into my tricaster unit (Video Input 1). There is not signal being received by my tricaster. No picture. Is this a known issue or could the Mini DVI Dongle be faulty?
    I have a mini dvi to vga output. That dongle does work, I have tested it. Is there a cost-effective way I can use the VGA dongle with a VGA cable and convert it to an S-Video or RCA signal?

    Please help. All setup at my school. If this works, we purchase the product.

  • Hi Achim, I am trying to help my son set up his new camera, a Canon EOS Rebel T2i to use with iStopmotion (latest version). He is usong Mac OS 10.6.8. The software recognizes the camera. I get the "You need to manually update the preview by pressing the preview button in the transport area." message. When I do this, i get "Capturing an image failed because the operation timed out. Please check your device and it's connection to your Mac. If this doesn't help, try with a different one." I emailed support@boinx.com with the screen image of the errors and received advice to make sure the camera was not going to sleep and/or try medium and small image file sizes which also did not help. Do you have any advice?
