[IDV #GOL-295105]: Scripting skew-T image captures

Not sure why, I have no problem getting hodographs.

To save individual time frame in your loop, the best way is to save a movie and 
let the IDV creating all the images. Before saving the bundle, go to View > 
Capture > Movie, in the Image Files section check the save Fiels to box, and 
input the setting. Then, you can save the bundle. When you run the bundle and 
generate the movie, those individual images will be saved too.
