Importing real Time photo canon 400d

I don’t arrive to know how to connect my caméra canon eos 400d by usb to max msp jitter.
I use jit.dx.grab (pc) or jit.qt.grab (mac) to have video live.
I want taking photos in live show and display them.

is there an other command for photography?

is the camera a quicktime or directX compatible video digitizer?

Thank you for answer RobTheRich!
yes my camera produces .jpg so if I want to display my photo in quicktime, I command to eos utility (for canon caméra) to send photo and she appears in quicktime, so it’s compatible to quicktime…

have an idea dear Rob?

I too have been trying to figure out how to do this. Would make such high-quality time-lapse stuff. Anyone!?

Some one talk to me about “cron (script systèm) to import the photo
does anybody knows that?

dunno much about cron script, apart from its unix commands which probably run from terminal app in osx.

or u could look into applescript or automator scripts to import your photos…

So one step with this patch:

– Pasted Max Patch, click to expand. –

I find this here:
this permit to show in max photos who are in a file and to import it.
but it’s already not automatic.

I have found, it’s not automatic but it’s works:
put the js and patch in the same folder of the photos
Open the patch, double-click on the js and change the directorie of the folder.
Click on Matago, and the files are in umenu

  1. regardons.js
