    Grab the Onion Skin slider from left to right to control the opacity of the next live image and the captured image. Onion Skin will allow us to see the direction of the animation as we capture it. To get the best results, I highly recommend that you use a tripod when you shoot photos and videos for stop motion animation.

    Just downloaded 19.5 and installed it without issues. I tried using stop motion, but could not get it to work. I tried my Nikon D800, my Canon 20D and my iphone 6s. None of those cameras were detected by Pinnacle. All show up in the import field but none show up on the Stop Motion. Is there a list of cameras that Pinnacle support. Is there any setting that I have missed.
