PSA serves a vital role. However, there are also cases when we want to build something as fast as possible without worrying about a consolidation area. In this case you can create a transform that is sourced from a stage component directly.
Keep in mind that PSA also serves as the place where RecordTime is assigned. When skipping PSA the RecordTime will need to be assigned in the Transform. Component t1000, Transform Main, will present the appropriate controls to do so.
