A470 Balloon Project

Using a A470,

Anyone know of a script that will:
take photos for a time, then switch to movie mode, record for a time and the repeat the process?
So far what have found does not seem to work. There is a "Test" script I found in the build that does change modes so I know it will do it. I want to get all I can out of the camera while in flight. The Spacebits script floating around sounds like what I want but I get errors when I run it. Any help would be appreciated. Once I get past this camera hurdle, I be ready to test and launch!

http://www.francescobonomi.it/photo-balloon and posts by fbonomi might be of interest.

If you are getting errors with a script, you should post the specific errors in the scripting forum. If the script has a thread dedicated to it, you may post there.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

If you switch to SDM, the script below will do the job.
Code: [Select]
@title Still and Movie Intervalometer
@param d Delay before start (Secs)
@default d 2
@param i Interval between photos (Secs)
@default i 5
@param m length of movie (in secs)
@default m 15
@param n number of photos per movie
@default n 9

rem sync_off needed to stop SDM waiting for a sync pulse on the usb port
sync_off

sleep 1000*d
while 1
   for j = 1 to n
      shoot
      sleep i*1000
   next j
   shoot_movie_for m
   sleep i*1000
wend
end

Personally, I find 'sleep_for_seconds i'  is more readable than 'sleep  i*1000'.
