Quartz Composer Plugin
ImageExporter                   A Quartz Composer plug-in that writes the input image 
                        as a series of .png files to disk.
Sample Requirements             The plugin was created using the Xcode editor running 
                        under Mac OS X 10.6.x or later. 
About the sample                A Quartz Composer plug-in that implements a custom 
                        consumer patch that writes the input image as a 
                        series of PNG files to disk.
Using the Sample                Open the project using the Xcode editor which can be found 
                        in /Developer/Applications. From the main menu, 
                        choose "Project", set "Active Configuration" to "Release", 
                        and "Active Target" to "Build & Copy".  These settings are
                        also available from the top left corner of the 'Overview' 
                        pull-down window. Build the project. Once the build has 
                        completed successfully, the plug-in can be used as a 
                        regular QC patch in the Quartz Composer editor (also 
                        installed under /Developer/Applications), by selecting it 
                        from the Library - Plugin panel.
                        Connect an image to the patch input port "Image". The 
                        image is saved at the location indicated by the 
                        "Destination Path" parameter. Image file name starts 
                        with Image-00001.png.
