I'm using a manual lens for a day to night timelapse. Is there any benefit to ramping the aperture?

If I do ramp the aperture. Do I also need to track what frame those changes were made so I can enter that info into LRT processing?

Thanks,

I'd not recommend doing aperture ramping on a manual lens, if the lens aperture is not being written into the exif-data. Because then you would have to tag the aperture manually in order to have the holy grail wizard working.
Better use Exposure and ISO ramping only. This will also prevent you from having changing dof and vignetting which you would get when changing the aperture during the sequence.
