Snow Leopard / Mountain Lion / Quartz Composer / CamCamX
CamCamX (and indeed each of our applications which support QuickLook) utilizes a special "driver shim" file CamCamXInput.plugin

If the CamCamXInput.plugin
is installed in the /Library/Graphics folder, the output of the CamCamX mixer will not be available to QuickLook (Finder).
