My hardware timer/remote release was not available today and I recalled Magic Lantern can do timelapses, so I downloaded it and ran it. When ran I can only see some extra stuff in video mode and I couldn't find any ML menus anywhere that would indicate timelapse.

Question is: how do I do a timelapse video on the 5D mark III or at least use ML as a timer.

I'm using most current firmware [1.2.3] and ML for it.

If you've installed ML correctly, the trash button activates the Magic Lantern menus.

If you go into the Shoot menu, you'll find the Intervalometer settings. The Func button then lets you modify the intervalometer settings. That will let you take stills at set intervals, which you can then combine into a timelapse video in post processing.
