Oh, and btw, thanks for all your work on this little gem!
It depends on the scene. If the scene matches matches what ever current exposure is set to its doesn't have to use too many frames to decide its right, whereas if its a long way off it needs more frames to get its exposure right. (IIRC - i'm no expert on the grim details)
I *think* there is a callback the the code could use to find out whether its ready, or perhaps I can poll something - I'll need to investigate. Can you post a specific request for that in the features request thread so I don;t forget it.
