About Interval setting in 'movie mode' - can u use flash?

In the movie mode, Interval setting, which allows you to make a movie with still shots only, (that's the way I understand it), can you use the flash? Do you have that option in this movie mode? Will the flash be active for these still shots? I imagine if the Interval is too short(5sec) the flash can't recoup fast, but will it fire in the longer settings? I like to ask, I know I could have experimented, but your knowledge base is very appreciated. thank you.

It is probably best to try first and then if it doesn't work, ask if anyone is aware of a work-around.

I believe the flash menu is inaccessible in movie mode.
