I am develloping myrtille ( https://launchpad.net/myrtille), a tool for
stopmotion who takes video snapshot from DV cam or Web cam. The goal is
to help on realisation on image per image animations

I have on the application the video return of the CAM. I have a button
"capture" to take a snapshot ( image) of the
video. So in my mind the "button capture" could be also linked to the
"spacebar", buy it seems not a great idea at all ;-) . The usage could
be a simple way to take photos, especially for young kids. Perhaps with
playing with button focus I can have this feature implemented with
spacebar ? or I change completely the key ( 'c' key for example ? )
