I want to shoot 2-D stop motion movies with an overhead camera rig.
I want to be able to do the following:
SEE MY CAMERA ON MY LAPTOP
I want to be able to see what my camera sees on my laptop. How can I make this happen? The camera I plan to use is the Nikon D3300.
ONION SKIN THE PREVIOUS IMAGE
While viewing my live camera on my laptop, I want to be able to see the previous shot in "onion skin" mode. So basically, a low opacity version of the previous shot as the background of the next shot.
Would I need to use expensive software, or is there a low-cost solution for this type of thing?
