Octolapse - Camera Error

First, the technical junk.
Raspberry Pi 4 running OctoPrint 1.5.3 with Octolapse 0.4.1
Printer is a Prusa MK3S, camera is a Nikon D3100.

The problem is that it works exactly the way I want it to work...but I get error messages anyway. Basically, I don't want Octolapse to download the pictures, I just want to put the time lapse together myself from the pictures that the camera saves on its internal SD card. Octolapse triggers the camera no problem, camera takes the pictures...but in Octoprint, I get an error message for every picture taken, saying it is a failed snapshot because it couldn't download the picture from the camera.

Is there any way to turn off that feature, so that Octoprint doesn't even try to download the picture, but just triggers the snapshot, waits a couple seconds, and moves on with no error message?


Since you just want to trigger the camera, forget USB and use a script and the Raspberry Pi GPIO to do it. Maybe this could help you out: https://coronadesigns.ca/2021/03/22/introducing-a-raspberry-pi-gpio-hardware-trigger-for-slr-cameras/

Hope this helps!
