Very 1st post here so please be gentle with my cherry :-)
I'm really very average at installing and understanding things like this so it was a challenge, especially when parts of it didn't work for me to get it up and running but now have it fully installed with Time lapse, the feature I most needed :-)

Do I now use the CHDK menu for all settings ie aperture etc if I'm using time lapse or if I go and say create say a custom setting in the camera itself and I then use time lapse will it pick up the rest of the settings from the custom settings in the camera or do I now control all over rides / settings from the CHDK menu ????

This probably depends a lot on which timelapse ( intervalometer ) script you are using.  There are hundreds of them out there.

Most scripts assume that the camera is in P (or Auto) mode and that the regular Canon firmware is controlling the exposure.   You don't need to do anything if that is the case although you can go into the CHDK "Enhanced Photo Operations" menu and set overrides if you so desire.

Other scripts will set the exposure for you.  This is common in "sunset" scripts like yass4.lua.

Thank you for that, I didn't realise there were different scripts, the one I downloaded I had to copy the command.bas file into scripts, that may or may not mean anything to you.
I'm goin.g to be using this on a Multirotor which as quite a bit of vibration, I've see people suggesting setting the Shutter speed quite high to get a non blurry photo.

Very high - 1/2000 might be needed and that's assuming you have adequate vibration damping.

This might be of interest to you.

It's one of those scripts I mentioned that does all the exposure control for you.   Just remember to set the target Tv (shutter speed) at 1/2000 or less.
