Original (fixed weights)
35*(1-(FWHM-4.7)/5.4) + 5*(1-(Eccentricity-0.33)/0.45) + 10*(SNRWeight-0.93)/1.02 + 50

Original (variable weights)
51*(1-(FWHM-4.7)/5.4) + 8*(1-(Eccentricity-0.33)/0.45) + 21*(SNRWeight-0.93)/1.02 + 20

Notes
14
- Enter the minimum and maximum values calculated by SubframeSelector for each of the metrics (blue boxes)
15
16
- The range sets how much variance in the final weighted calculation. If set to 100, then the output weights will range from 0 to 100, meaning the worst frame would have no contribution to the final stack.
17
- I like to use a range of 40 to 60, but it's up to you
18
- If you want to weight based more on FWHM, I would use the last expression since the 1/FWHM^2 function will cause a more rapid drop off of weights as the FWHM increases
19
- Once you've entered the data copy the expression to your SubframeSelector Weighting expression field (there may be spaces at the end of the text that will need to be deleted)
