How to turn off autofocus in timelapse?

Hello,
When I choose intervalometer script and choose 1 sec between photos my camera makes 3 seconds between photos because it is making measures. I do not want any auto measures. I want to leave all the settings done through the standard menu and let chdk only click every second for me. I Chose manual shutter, manual iso, manual WB, manual focus and when I start intervalometer script it still measures something. How to turn this [admin: avoid swearing please] off?
Camera: Canon G9.
Thank you!

You might want to try a different (better) script.

Here's a few good options :

link > A Fast Intervalometer

What's the difference between those scripts, Waterwingz?

What's the difference between those scripts, Waterwingz?

link > Fast Shooter Intervalometer
  • a simple script that takes individual shots as quickly as possible with the focus and exposure locked after the first shot

link > A Fast Intervalometer
  • a simple script that essentially holds down the camera's shutter button and assumes that the camera has been configured in the Canon menus to shoot in continuous mode

link > Raw Meter Intervalometer
  • a very complex script (with lots of somewhat arcane options) that shoots as fast as possible and adjusts the exposure between shots.

The third script is a little more difficult to use but if you accept the default settings it should work well and will likely give you the best result in any situation where the illumination might change between shots.
