Operation

When Enable Periodic Capture Image is True, each time the Transform is ticked, an image is captured and transmitted from the Output Image port.

When Enable Periodic Capture Image is False, an image is captured and transmitted from the Output Image port when a transition is received on the CaptureImage inport.

When a transition is received on the SaveImage inport, a copy of the current image is saved in the directory specified in the message. The Transforms are intended to work with the Default Directory Structure.
