The FrameSnapSink is a sink type used to grab a number frames from the video stream on demand.
This sink is useful in situations where the application only needs access to the image data of some of the images, for example as part of a snapshot operation or at regular intervals. Live video can still be displayed as it is received by the device. If the application needs to process all images, the FrameQueueSink is the preferred option.
A simple example is shown here:
FrameSnapSink sink = new FrameSnapSink(MediaSubtypes.RGB32); ICImagingControl1.Sink = sink; ICImagingControl1.LiveStart(); // fetch a single image IFrameQueueBuffer frame = sink.SnapSingle(TimeSpan.FromSeconds(5)); frame.SaveAsBitmap("test.bmp"); frame.SaveAsJpeg("test.jpg", 90); frame.SaveAsTiff("test.tiff");
