Run frame analysis in parallel to start of next frame

I usually enable image history to watch the quality of frames and check if I need to run the autofocus manually in addition to autofocus settings. However, this image analysis adds extra delay between image frames, which can be rather long (especially with full sensor size), added to dithering and settling time between frames and effectively reducing precious imaging time. It could be very useful to have previous frame analysis to be run from separate thread and start next frame immediately after downloading the previous one. Another possible enhancement allowing optimization of imaging time could be start dithering of next frame in parallel to downloading the last one (but making sure download is complete before sending start new exposure command to camera).

Thanks.

Great idea Leo! This would spend a lot of time, especially on the dithering with large CCD sensors where the download takes 15-25sec.
