A430 time lapse

I have installed the CHDK software onto my A430 and loaded the Ultra Intervalometer which loads ok too. But if I try to run a time lapse, all I get is the first shot? I have seen clips on youtube using this camera, but mine does not seem to work.
Has anyone got a scrip they know will work on this model?
Thank you.

Hello and Welcome.

I think you have the wrong camera model, the A430 is not supported.

Simon, ignore my reply.

I did not notice the A430 porting thread.

Make sure that you're really starting the script with the shutter button while you're in <Alt> mode - outside <Alt> mode the shutter button just captures an image ;)

You can try other scripts, e.g.
* http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/LUA#Minimalistic_Intervalometer   or
* http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/LUA#yet_another_accurate_intervalometer

...and please do not double post !

I am starting the script as it shows up as script running, takes the first shot and thats it.
Re the double post I only put one link that I could see, but it displayed two video's. I did edit the post to attempt correction but it made no difference, sorry.

fe50 is referring to the second A430 thread you started, not the movie appearing twice in this thread.

Anyway, that movie problem is a very irritating feature, read this  :-

Oh, yes I see what you mean re double post. Well I have tried all the different scripts with the same result, one shot only. There must be a bug in the firmware.

Sorted! I was not using the latest DiskBoot file! Works fine now. Thank you all very much.
