SX20+CHDK- Time Lapse nature videos from Jamaica

I would like to thank the CHDK community for opening up new possibilities for my camera. I have been living in Jamaica doing some bird field work in Font Hill Nature Preserve. Here are some time lapse videos I shot using the Ultra-Intervalometer script, and edited in adobe Premiere pro. I used LR-Timelapse when I shoot in Av mode to reduce flicker.


follow the Youtube link to *watch in 720p HD!*

Fiddler Crabs scampering around and mating displays:

All photos shot in JPEG with SX20 using a tripod. I created the pan/zoom effects in post-processing. For the sound in the Fiddler Crab video I used the sound recorder option on the SX20. I have some more ideas planned and I'll post the final videos here after I shoot them. I would appreciate any questions or suggestions..

Thanks

Correction: the camera I use is an SX10is, not SX20.

Here is a new video:

Nice sunset!
What interval did you use?
Do you shoot timelapses at full rez or a smaller image format?

@grg, I used an interval of about 3 seconds or so. I learned that it's a good idea to turn off "review", because that will add another two seconds or more between shots. I usually shoot in the second highest resolution available, although I have also shot in "wide" resolution if I want to pan a lot in post-processing.
