installed the new firmware ... script is functioning now ..
made a short recording and the file is there..

however --

the cam "crashes" after few minutes into recording
and sometimes even quicker ..
screen goes black, lens stays extracted,
no buttons react.
only play or power button restarts the cam,
firmware reloads..  file is not there ..

i have 2 cams and they both do this ..

ubasic version from waterwingz:

the indicator is counting down the seconds..

however at the end of shooting
i don't have a file on the SD card

Are you starting the script with the camera in video record or just in playback mode ?

video in "shooting mode" ?  ( i.e. the lens is extended) ?

This is a known problem on sx230, I was able to fix it for sx220. You can get around this by disabling the OSD in Menu->OSD Param->Show OSD.

Try this one (your camera might not start video with just a short "click" as provided by the click command).

Code: [Select]
@title MultiMovie
@param x time per file in seconds
@default x 590
   f=0
   print "recording started..."
   press "shoot_half"
   sleep 1500

:new
   f=f+1
   press "shoot_full"
   sleep 1000
   release "shoot_full"
   if f=1 then release "shoot_half"
   print "file number: ";f
   s=get_tick_count
 
:loop
   t=(get_tick_count-s)/1000
   if t>x then goto "reload"
   print "file number: ";f
   print "time left: ", x-t, "s" 
   sleep 900
   goto "loop"

:reload
   print "reloading..."
   press "shoot_full"
   sleep 1000
   release "shoot_full"
   print "waiting for video..."

:waitloop
   q=get_movie_status
   if q=1 then goto "new"
   print "status:",q
   sleep 100
   goto "waitloop"

hmmm, i had it already disabled...
so guess the sx230 is bit picky there ...

1st off, I am a newbie so be gentle   :)

I was looking for a way to workaround the 30 minute video time limit (4GB FAT32) on my S95 when I stumbled across CHDK... very cool.

I have managed to verify my FW, load the CHDK, and play around with it a bit including a few of the stock scripts.

Problem is, I cannot find a working script for continuous video for the S95 & I am far from a coder... I have tried both scripts here: http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Continuous_Video as well as some in various message threads.

I get this:
*** STARTED ***
*** FINISHED ***
uBasic: 1 Unk stmt

Anyone have any tips? Or is there a script out there I have overlooked? Or better yet can someone make edits to the BSA script above to work with the S95?

Appreciate the help!
