Switch between camera inputs in a single VI

I'm trying to run a robot with 4-6 different cameras, and I already know that trying to stream all of them at once will cause memory problems. Instead, I'd like to have one video pane that switches from one camera feed to another (I'll take care of the switching conditions). Is there a good way to set up a number of IMAQ video loops that can be easily switched between? Other methods would work too, but that's the first technique that comes to mind.

Hi mkitchell,


I have created an example program which may be what you are looking for. It is a simple VI that uses express VIs, but I believe it might be what you are looking for. You can try to use this code as a basis for increasing the number of cameras and making it more robust as you wish.
