Automatic focus stacking with Sony - It can be done (software inside)

A couple of weeks ago I noticed that the Sony Imagine Edge software supports shifting the focus of my A7R3. Unfortunately the software itself does not provide sufficient means of automation to make focus stacking possible. I work as a software developer so I decided to build a small tool to fill the gap. The program simulates a user pressing the "shift focus"-button and "take picture"-button over and over again. In a way its a remote for a remote.

This is the first public version of my software. Please bear in mind that it was created in my leisure time in a couple of hours spread across weekends. So don't expect too much.
The software is open source, I don't make any profit with it nor do I intent to.
You can find some more infos and the download link at github: B8Stack at github

Here is a picture of an old brokoli that I found in my fridge stacked from 120 images:

And a little screenshot of the software:

Feedback is welcome.
