Just tried v002-Camera-Live. Works a charm with the 600D. Uses Syphon so OSX only.

Do we have options for Windows? Got a client with a preference for PC. I don’t necessarily need live video. Automatic importing of single shots as they are taken is fine too (stop-motion animation tool).

The closest I could find so far is using Canon’s EOS Utility to save shots to a designated folder on the PC, watch that folder from Max and import new images as they appear. Is there anything more streamlined out there?

Looks like this app does it:
Makes live view feed available as a cam source in Max.
