>&#13;			Image importing in Stopmotion works by continously asking an external program
			to grab a picture from the camera and place it in the .stopmotion directory.
			Stopmotion then displays this picture, and when this is done continously you 
			get live video.
		</P
><P
>&#13;			If you want to add a new import program you can do this by pressing the 
			<SPAN
CLASS="guimenu"
><SPAN
CLASS="accel"
>A</SPAN
>dd</SPAN
>
			button. A new row appears in the table and you can fill in a name for your
			setting and a short description.
		</P
><P
>&#13;			You then have to specify the command line options to import pictures. These
			can be set by selecting your setting and pressing the 
			<SPAN
CLASS="guimenu"
><SPAN
CLASS="accel"
>E</SPAN
>dit</SPAN
>
			button.
		</P
><P
>&#13;			There are three things which can be specified here. The prepoll, start daemon
			and stop daemon fields. If the program for importing the images grabs one image
			and then exits you can leave the start and stop daemon fields blank. The contents 
			of the prepoll field is a command which is run before importing a picture. If the 
			import program is running in the foreground this will typically be the command line 
			for grabbing the picture. Note that you have to write (DEFAULTPATH) in the command 
			line on the place you otherwise would have speciefied the path to the file where 
			the image should be stord. Stopmotion will replace this tag with the correct path 
			and file name.
		</P
><P
>&#13;			If the program you use for importing the pictures is running as a background/daemon
			process you have to specify command lines for starting and stoping the daemon.
			Again you should use the $importpath tag instead of the path to the file (se above).
			Prepoll could still be used but is not required. One potential use for the prepoll
			command when the grab program is running as a daemon process is to specify a command
			line which performes a operation such as scaling or rotating the picture. This
			command will be called on the pictures every time before importing them meaning
			the live video will be displayed with the effect.
