Overlay not working

Post by Pix29 » Fri Jan 12, 2024 11:31 pm

Hi! I am new to this software, My Overlay option is not working, if it is set to 0, the camera moves around so does the image on screen, but as soon it is greater than 0, like 1 or 10 or 56 etc (transparency) the camera freezes, and there is no overlay.
I have a sony a6000 connected via wi fi.

I have the same issue. Just downloaded it a few days ago. I'm trying to do some stop-motion by using the overlay feature as an onionskin, but it just doesn't work. I tried with a regular file image in a folder, but that also didn't work. It just freezes the live view no matter what if the transparency is above 0.

I have the same problem. One day ago I connected my 70D to my computer and it worked as normal. Since yesterday I cannot use the overlay. When I set the transperancy above 0% the picture freezes. I tested older versions of digicamcontrol and tested it also on another computer. Every time its the same. Has anybody an idea of an solution?

I wanted to check in source code but is it true that source is not updated since... 10 years?
