If you are unable to directly control the camera, but you do have a camera which can automatically transfer new photographs to your computer, you may be able to employ the ‘Image Watch Folder’.

The ‘Image Watch Folder’ is a special folder which is constantly monitored by Moving Light Assistant for the arrival of new files. Whenever the camera places a new photograph in this folder, Moving Light Assistant will import the photograph. The shutter release must be manually activated on the camera. The Image Watch Folder must be setup in the menu Setup->Image Watch Folder.

Image Watch Folder Dialog

Click the Choose button and browse to a folder to monitor for new files. If ‘Preview Image’ is selected you will have the option to preview the image before importing it, otherwise the image will be imported directly.

For this functionality to work the Image Watch Folder window must remain open, and only closed at the end of the photography session. The folder to be watched must be chosen afresh at the start of every new session.
