Excellent!

To keep the interface responsive (screen updates etc), Just call ProcessEvents() in each loop http://pixinsight.com/developer/pcl/doc/html/classpcl_1_1ProcessInterface.html#aac3a7129a06110eab0f6584c7111b2d0.

Hi NKV,

I'm confused(not unusual for me). Is this Blink Script to replace the Animation Script or is this something new that is doing something different than Animation?

I write it to replace the Animation Script. Current PCL version don't cover all features of script version, but in near future it will more powerful... i hope...

If you have huge qty of images from one good photo session and before make masterFiles you want to be sure that all images is OK. No errors during readout from camera, temperature divination not so big, etc. So you need fast method to sort the images and delete bad. Fastest method it is visual inspection or numeric inspection of statistics of each image.  The Blink module can help to you.

Also if you take lights between clouds and you don't sure which is bad/good, just try Blink module to see how sky condition changed during night.

Hi Nikolay,

Did I mention you're doing a fantastic work? ;)

How about releasing these tools through the update repository? If you agree, we can arrange it for next week.
