DoF Bracketing script, need help Please!

Hello there
This is my first LUA scripting post after having problems with uBasic

Challenge:
Make a script that changes values in CHDK Bracketing menu and then shoot images!

Is something like this possible? (remember I have only written one script in my life, the simple one below)

Changing settings in CHDK ALT Menu | extra photo operation | braceting in continius mode

Subj.Dist Bracket Value (MF)
Value Factor (mm)
Bracketing Type


my example ( I don't know even if this is possible)

set Bracketing type = +
C=Bracketing type
A=Subj.Dist Bracket Value (MF)
B=Value Factor (mm)
if A <3 then A=3
if B <1 then B=1

I want A, B and C to be changable from the ALT Menu like other scripts

Really ned help on this PLEASE

This is what my script does today but it is very slow:
print "Preparing..."
:Start
click "shortcut"
sleep 200
click "menu"
sleep 200
click "set"
sleep 200

take a look at the lua libs, particularly the cam.smartShoot function. it does exposure and sets a number of variables at exposure time. you should be able to use it to accomplish what you need to.

maybe you're interested in something like this? http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/DoF_Stacking
