The example demonstrates how to acquire a number of frames with NI-IMAQ and save them to disk.
This example uses the low level asynchronous acquisition of NI-IMAQ to acquire frames to preallocated buffers. If activated the acquisition can be triggered so a frame is only acquired when a trigger occurs. The 'IMAQ Occurrence Config' function can generate a occurrence when the acquisition starts or stops, so the application can check whether the asynchronous operation has finished.
