File Stream Renderer Filter

The File Stream Renderer filter renders file names that are parsed by the Multi-File Parser filter. For more information, see the documentation for that filter.

The use of this filter is deprecated. To render multiple files within the same filter graph, the application should simply call RenderFile or AddSourceFilter multiple times.
