This video shows how to use the DVR to take snapshots using the Photo Capture function and also how to use our DVRs and NVRs to take time-lapse photographs.
When using PhotoCapture for motion capture, the camera must be already set up to give motion triggers, see this video for details on how to set up motion detection.
At the end of the Capture video is a short clip showing some photos assembled into a video of a fidgety dog...this cannot be made using the DVR alone. It was made using free OSX computer software called Zeitraffer for Apple Mac, using this software i can tell it to look in the usb sticks folder of photos and assemble them into a video file.
other time-lapse software is available.
