Before using the camera, you'll need to install the correct camera driver. The camera driver is available as a free download from the Stopmotion Explosion website (link below).
If you are installing the camera on a computer with multiple user accounts, please make sure you're logged in as the administrative user before following the instructions below.
Make sure you have plugged the camera into the computer directly, and not into a USB hub, or USB extension cord, otherwise the computer may not recognize your camera.
- Download the driver from this link.
- Unzip and double-click the vmuvc.exe file. The installation wizard should launch.
- You can choose to Remove, Repair, or Install the camera driver. Click Install. (If you are fixing a faulty camera install, click Repair)
- After installation finishes, plug the camera into your computer’s USB port and launch your stopmotion program, or AMCAP to test your camera (located on your desktop).
Testing the Camera
To test the camera, point the lens at any well lit object. Click the AMCAP icon on your desktop. Twist the camera’s focus ring until the image is clear.
