    So are you asking if you can just plug in your camera, and let it run all day and have it constantly storing the raw footage being filmed straight onto your hard drive? If so, then that will be application specific. Are you goingg to be using Final Cut, iMovie, Quicktime or some thing else?

    You may want to look into iStopMotion. They have a page that lists cameras that work the way you want. This is important because not all cameras can be used in this manner.

    When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.

    You can "film" short clips simply using Photo Booth.
