Questions about making scripts[ New ]
I am looking to see if anyone can guide me to a page that gives me a bit of guidance on putting the scripts together (such as order of commands, making sure I am in the correct mode with correct settings, etc)
As many others are I am doing some long-term timelapse setups and have been trying the construction timelapse with these settings (mPdP>06:59<17:00!345SQ~!07:00S!1R) generated from the link listed below. The issue is that it seems to sometimes do the repeat function starting at 17:00 rather than starting the next day at 7:00 as desired.
This link doesn't give me the option to choose any capture settings, which is fine because it seems to be working with the settings that I have loaded onto the camera from the QR customizer page (mPfWtrcFb1w55i2S0sMag0v0q0dPoV0B1D4R2S3W0L0)
Obviously, it's best to keep the construction timelapse code as simple as possible.
I have been trying to figure out writing the script on my own so that I really understand what it is saying, but there are some discrepancies among the pages that I am not sure if they make a difference or not.
On the timelapse code above it has the chevrons facing inwards >6:59< for the start time, but on this link https://gopro.github.io/labs/control/actions/ for all time-based commands they start with and ! and have chevrons facing outward<>.
The info pages are ok, but it would be much better if you were able to make the codes and have each section that you are adjusting be highlighted in a way, as well as some guidance for which order the commands should be listed.
This may already exist and I have just not found it on the labs info

Can you explain more? Can you show the MISC/qrlog.txt for this error?
I fixed the docs, as the use of < > was ambiguous. Now they only mean greater than or less than. See updated: https://gopro.github.io/labs/control/actions/
These pages are only public reference documentation.
