VLOG Number 3 – Video Overlay Part 2
In part one I did a very quick overlay showing a g-meter on a video.
In part 2 I go in to the mechanics of the process, how to get the data and how to put it onto a video.
For the data gathering I used an Innovate Motorsports LM-2 to log the wideband lambda data plus the RPM and TPS (Throttle Position)
For the G readings and GPS I used a Racelogic performance box.
To get the Innovate data into a CSV I used Innovate’s data logging analysis software Logworks – free to download here
And for the Racelogic data I used Performance tools to get the Performance Box data into a CSV
When you have the two sets of data you will need a data logging software that can combine the video with the data.
In this example I used RaceRender.
I tried with DashWare originally but could not get it to accept the LogWorks data.
Hopefully this will show you how easy it is to get a video overlay using any data you want.
The key to the whole process us getting the data into a CSV file.
If you can get your OBD data into a CSV file, the only limit is your imagination with regards to what and how many gauges you can get on your video.
