simulated imaqdx cameras

This idea is something I have implemented in house and posting is motivated by the following discussion:

 

http://forums.ni.com/t5/Machine-Vision/Simulate-GigE-Vision-Basler-Runner-Camera-ruL2098-10gc/m-p/30...

 

I would like to have the ability to add a simulated imaq camera in max to use with the imaqdx driver.  

The camera should be able to specify wither it is linescan or area scan, as well as sensor size and specifications.  The simulated device should support the basic property nodes (AOI, exposure line or frame rate ..... could even have a xml for iGenCam).  Ideally the source of the image (directory) could be specified so that grabs or snaps would play back previously acquired images or a test pattern could be selected instead.

 

I might be asking for too much, but this allows for offline testing on vision systems, something that is common after deployment.
