S95 + built in HDR + timelapse script

I did some searching didn't turn up anything so sorry if this is a repeat.

The S95 has built in HDR where it combines three shots into one.  I was trying to shoot in this mode with the intervalometer.bas script that comes in the CHDK build.  I couldn't get it to work, just shoots the first seqeunce of three shots, then combines them, then goes back to the shooting screen but never takes the next shot.  Tried short, long intervals, no dice...  Anyone got this to work with any particular script or settings?


Thanks!

If the script is using shoot, it's possible the CHDK shoot command gets confused by canon HDR mode. You could try using key presses instead, e.g. replace the shoot line with
Code: [Select]
press "shoot_half"
do
  sleep 10
until get_shooting = 1
click "shoot_full"
release "shoot_half"
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Worked like a charm.  Thanks for that bit of code.  It will be interesting to see how the S95's HDR photos compare to a normal series of photos.
