Time lapse video interval time mod
- Known to be working on: Ixus 70 & Ixus 75 & Ixus 85
- Should also work on: Any camera with time lapse video functionality.
- Required CHDK build: Only tested with latest build (as of 12/08/08)
A modified version of the "Built-in interlavometer" script as found on http://crteknologies.free.fr/wiki/doku.php/photo:chdk-scripts. This script allows you to override interval time variable to any amount of time (rather than 1" or 2"). I have modified this script slightly to allow easier adjustment of the variable.
Documentation/Help (save as a small "interval_time.txt" file to your /CHDK/SCRIPTS/ folder)
interval_ms sets the amount of milliseconds the interval time is set to, and interval_multi multiplies this value to allow for easier adjustment (otherwise to change from 500ms to 5" would mean cycling through 4500 numbers). The full interval time is interval_ms * interval_multi. The default interval time is 5".
Script Code (save as "interval_time.bas" to your /CHDK/SCRIPTS/ folder)
@title Time lapse interval @param a interval_ms @param b interval_multi @default a 500 @default b 10 a=a*b rem set the interval set_prop 165 a sleep 200 rem read the interval and display it for verification get_prop 165 b print "val: ",b,"ms" end
