Hello and welcome !

I think we need more information than that, which stop-motion software are you trying to use ?

i found that canon g12 lost  "The Remote Shooting feature" that  ended with the G10 _
we can't control it with software by PC...
any solution ?

The G12 is not supported :-

As it says, the Canon SDK (software development kit) no longer supports Powershots.

If you mean can you do something similar with CHDK, the answer is yes.

You use something called PTP.

However, it does not run 'out-of-the-box', CHDK developers (especially G12 owners) can give you more information.

I have some software that will probably do what you want, if you get stuck contact me.

Seems to be a python script designed for remote control of a camera via Lua and ptp.  The code is very specific to a particular camera model.   Where did you find it ?  And is it that you want to do exactly ?

I do not think you want to get involved with nasty stuff like that unless you are already familiar with Python  :-

If no G12 owners who use CHDK PTP reply today, then contact me.

EDIT:
Just noticed you have, I do not normally sign-in to the Forum.
