I think 20 is about the best and if you have a very fast computer you could set it to 10. If you are running large files and you need to have a bit more buff you could up it to 25... This is a setting that I have not tested my self, I just heard what it did.

Hope that is a little help

Hi:

  Lookahead amount depends alot on the type of file, if its hundreds of very small segments, then 50 would be good, if its only moves greater than the acceleration distance, then 2 is fine. 20 is a good median amount that covers almost all possabilities, hence it is the default..

Thanks
