I have been reading through the site for the last little while trying to get my head around a few things. While looking for software that had the functionality I was looking for I not only came across this project which I think is fantastic, I also found Dragon Stop Motion
Dragon stop Motion
I understand that openMoco slim works off a computer and Dragon stop motion has the ability to talk back to the arduino boards. I'm wondering could the two be combined dragon performing image capture to computer and Moco taking care of motion control or are they incompatible?
I can see several advantages to doing this the fact that the dragon software has far more control over the cameras settings and a good set of live feedback tools.
Also the ability to take a video feed for the time lapse means less wear on the cameras shutters. Ive already killed one on my 40D through using it for TL, obviously there is a trade off here in resolution but given that your already putting the camera where you want it with the motion control I see this as less of an issue.
I understand that what your doing is open source and Dragon stop motion is propriety but none the less I like the idea I would be interested to know if this is possible and if so what your thoughts are?
PS feel free to move this post if you feel it would be better somewhere else.....
PPS I would just like to say that I am in no way affiliated with Dragon..
