So I bougt myself the Olympus Pen mini (E-Pm-1), Being fed up with having no good camera and also I got it in a bargin as they were selling them out. I was licky because it was otherwice out of my price tag. I love it, it suits my non stop-mo needs perfectly.

But now I had an Idea again for a nifty brickfilm. And I cant seem to find if its able to be used with a framegrabber-animator-program-thing. Nor do I know what this Camera to comuter program symbiosis-thing is called. I tried to google but I guess im using the wrong words. Or it be stearing me in the face and im to focused to see it. (that can be a problem sometimes)

Questions is,
Is there a spechial name for this “camera to animation program symiosis-thing”?
How can I tell if it will work with my new(ish) camera?

Hi Morten, I think it all boils down to the pictures you take and how you use the software as symbiosis means that both things are working well together. What software do you use?

Yes, in lack of better wording. English is my secund languige, so I have to be creative when I try to explain things sometimes.

At the moment I use Clayframes for Android. But I was hoping to use the Camera with the PC(windows 7) through the USB. Like a frame grabber(?). I had a program that used the cam on my old laptop, with onionskinn. Freeware if I rememeber rigth. But its fubar now.
