I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.
Make a step by step specification of the process you hope to achieve, because what you wrote only looks like mad gibberish...

What he wants to do is create a virtual webcam. basically, create a fake device that returns images for webcam software to eat up.

I think you have to learn how to write lowlevel WDM driver, though. no way around that.

What had me stumped was the "capture real world images" part, which didn't rhyme well with the "virtual" part.

But then yes, you have to make your own driver. Creating a driver for a virtual device is actually quite simple. You may want to get your hands on Compuware Driver Studio, although they ceased production. The DriverWorks component is very handy for things like this, as it generates a very nice base for you to build on.

DriverWorks is one of component of Compuware Driver Studio,right? if you give me some driver development backgound and theory which should help you develop driver ,that would be better.any way I will google it and get some stuff.
