Camera Simulation Transforms

MxTransIt provides two Transforms that use image files to simulate a Camera Transform: File Set Camera and File-Triggered Camera.

File Set Camera

FileSetCamera

Each time this Transform is ticked, it sends an image transition from its SourceImage outport. The images are taken from .bmp files in the directory specified by the Base Directory Path property. Use the Default Directory Structure. Images are sorted by file name. When the end of the set is reached, it starts over.

The outport SourceImage should be connected to SourceImage input ports on Image Recognition Transforms. It cannot be imported into MxVDev.

When a transition is received on the SaveImage inport, a copy of the current image is saved in the directory specified in the message.

An NI Vision Development Module Run-Time License is required to use this Transform.

File Triggered Camera

FileTriggerCamera

This Transform watches the folder specified in its Directory Path property. Use the Default Directory Structure. When a .bmp file in the folder is renamed, it transmits the image from the file as a message on the CurrentImage outport.

When a transition is received on the SaveImage inport, a copy of the current image is saved in the directory specified in the message.
