I have been using the CHDK for a little while, and been slowly getting the hang of it. I decided to try making some timelapse videos using the ultra intervalometer I found here: http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/UBASIC/Scripts:_Ultra_Intervalometer
Here is the problem I'm having. I set all the values to zero exept for 'delay first shot' (I put the time I want between images here), 'number of shots' (I used 1 so it should repeat the timer after each shot), and "endless?" (I set it to one so it would repeat endlessly).
When I try and run the script, it counts down however many seconds I told it to, takes one photo and then reports it is 'finished'
I can't get endless to work if I have 'number of shots' set to 1. If I set number of shots to 2, it will count down as usual, take two shots in rapid succession, and then count down and repeat. This is what I want, but with one shot instead of two.
I can of course work around this problem by setting 'number of shots' to two, and setting the delay between those shots to match the 'delay first shot' This gives me the result I want, but I would rather just have to adjust the one value.
Any idea what is causing the endless option not to function correctly when it is set to one shot? Anyone know what can be changed in the script to cause it to function correctly? Or is it somthing I'm doing wrong in the parameters? Help is appreciated. Also I tried searching the forums and wiki for this issue but couldn't find it.
I'm using a canon A540. (and I re-downloaded chdk a couple of days ago so I could have the newest version)
On a side note, I can't get sokoban to work (all the other games do) Any idea why?
Here's the time lapse I took with the workaround: http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=4o6IOFqBRMo#
Thanks for any help.
