Mac animation software to control Canon EOS camera over USB?

I'm looking for Mac software to make an animation in 4k (camera native is slightly greater than 4k frame size).

Its needs to be quite simple, and just use the stills camera over USB to take a new frame every x seconds for a few hours. Then export to a standard video format.

istopmotion doesn't seem to have set interval option, but I'd emailed dev to confirm.

I can't tell if DragonFrame does or not - but the price is too hefty for one project.

The only other option I can think of is a timer on the camera only, taking a still, but this adds a lot of unnecessary post production if software exists.

thanks for your help

You can download the Canon EOS Utility from Canon's website if it wasn't included when you purchased your camera. It allows you to control camera by USB and has live view, exposure settings and timer function. Very basic but free and works on mac.

OH MY GOD!

How did I not know about that software????

That will teach me not to read the manual.

That is perfect for what I need. Actually, its way better, with the live WB picker.

Thanks so much for dropping the link!
