Per request of AuroraHDR team, I am posting my feature request publically.
Currently, the automagical 'HDR Brackets' detection functionality relies on the number of seconds between each HDR bracket. In particular, you must have 4 seconds between each group of HDR Brackets. This is problematic when shooting faster interval timelapse sequences, such as people or clouds where the intervals are 6 seconds or less. EG: A typical Cloud timelapse interval might be 6.5 seconds, which often will have less than 4 seconds between the last image captures of one HDR Bracket and the first image of the following HDR Bracket. Individual's using any Auto-Ramping tools that ramp interval time or aperture exposure might also encounter inconsistent results.
A simple solution is to allow users to override the current behavior by selecting a 'Manual' checkbox. Doing so would disable the automatic HDR Bracketing logic, and allow users to simply enter the number of frames that should be included in each HDR Bracket. While less 'sexy', the simplicity will actually result if more consistent results, which would greatly aid timelapse photographers.
Here is a quick mockup of how the UI could be arranged. The idea is that the UI would look and function the same, only with an "Advances" button in the lower corner. Clicking on the button would expand the Dialog Box, revealing the Manual options.
