Hello,

the use of the I/O pins is very limited at the moment. In the near future these pins will be used to access I/O hardware either to control external processes or to receive control signals from external processes.

For now only a few filters can handle I/O signals to control each other. One possible way to use I/O pins is to log the results of your customized filters (created using the Filter SDK), therfor you can use the MV Textfile Renderer filter. Another example is to pass on the names of the files processed by the MV Batch File Source filter to another filter that handles file names (Image Grabber, Image Renderer).
