I have been trying to connect my Canon 60D and to use it as a webcam, it works if I'm using it to stream, but for Character Animator it can't recognize it. Any recommendations?
AFAIK Character Animator only works with webcams. There may be some hacky workarounds but I believe that's a current limitation.
Character Animator can use any camera input that can present itself to the system as a webcam. So in the case of the Canon cameras, you will need to determine if the camera software they provide can make that camera act as a webcam to the system.
You can test whether or not your system sees a camera as a webcam by using the built-in "Camera" app on Windows, or the built-in "Photo Booth" app on Mac. If those apps can see your camera input, then likely Character Animator will be able to as well.
I see that Canon announced a new release of "EOS Webcam Utility Beta" on April 20th, so you might give that a try.
I have the EOS webcam fully functioning, but it does not show up Character Animator, nore to any of the virtual webcams on my computer that programs such as skype and zoom have no trouble finding.
the beta version of CANON webcam utility does not work.
The final/latest release makes use of a "webcam-like" implementation, which makes it compatible with Character Animator now
It only work under OSX.
With Windows it do not work.
Hi, I am facing this problem, the Camera app doesn't detect the EOS Utility either, is there a way to make this work?
