TimeLapse A490 - Image Every 30 seconds

Can someone help a newbie with the code, or where to find it, to program my A490 to take a photo every 30 seconds?

I think I need to upload an LUA file? 

Thanks in advance.

Its already installed on your camera when you loaded CHDK.   Look for a script file called interval.bas (or interval.lua if you want to use the LUA version),

When you are done with that,  there are much more sophisticated scripts you might like.  Search for "intervalometer" on the wiki,

I like the idea of that, it's for a balloon project so the intervalometer option looks favourable.  If I'm correct I can set a time before the time lapse images start taking?

There are quite a few balloon project threads - search for balloon in the forum.  Lots of good learnings there - no sense re-inventing the wheel.   Clever things like changing exposure with altitude,  locking focus,  switching between video and picture mode ....

Perfect, thanks... And so nice not to be shouted down with a question that to some is straightforward.

Thanks so much.
