Octolapse not taking pictures after the first layer

I set up octolapse this morning on my Mk3s and it only seems to work with the pre sliced gcode that came with my printer. When I try to slice my own code it takes a picture before the first layer starts and doesn't take any more pictures.

Both gcode files have the G90 and M83 commands in the start gcode. 

This is the pre sliced gcode

 

M107
M115 U3.2.1 ; tell printer latest fw version
M201 X1000 Y1000 Z200 E5000 ; sets maximum accelerations, mm/sec^2

M204 S1250 T1250 ; sets acceleration (S) and retract acceleration (T)
M205 X10 Y10 Z0.4 E2.5 ; sets the jerk limits, mm/sec
M205 S0 T0 ; sets the minimum extruding and travel feed rate, mm/sec
M83 ; extruder relative mode
M104 S215 ; set extruder temp

Any idea what the problem could be?

Update

I tried copying the start gcode over to my sliced model to no effect. I then tried slicing the same model as the pre sliced gcode and it started taking snapshot but not on every layer. Out of over 125 layers it only took 22 pictures.

The advice I always give to octolapse related posts is to use the 0.4RC instead of stable. It greatly improves the logic for taking pictures, and improves the quality overall by a fair bit.

Try upgrading to that, and see if you still have the issues.
