Video with GPS data overlay

At the moment I am stuck converting my Flysight .csv into a .gpx that gpx2srt.exe can read.



Have you tried GPSBabel with LukeH's style file? I haven't checked the most recent version of GPSBabel (have to run to a meeting right now), but it may have native support for FlySight CSV files, as well.

I have used Paralog to export to .gpx



I think you can export directly to a .srt file from Paralog.
Try the "jump_profile_gps.srt" template in the Subtitles folder.

Think that would be your best option as you can customize the templates in Paralog pretty easily if required.

GPS Babel hasn't been updated in a few months, but the .style file for Flysight is in post 54 of this thread: http://www.dropzone.com/cgi-bin/forum/gforum.cgi?do=post_view_flat;post=3954333;page=3;sb=post_latest_reply;so=ASC;mh=25;

You can export straight to .srt from GPS Babel, but won't have much control over the format without creating your own .style file.

So I thought I would have a go at overlaying GPS data on a video.

At the moment I am stuck converting my Flysight .csv into a .gpx that gpx2srt.exe can read.

I have used Paralog to export to .gpx (nice :)
Any ideas greatly appreciated!:)



I keep meaning to give DashWare a try.

Success! Just in case someone else wants to give it a try, this is the method I used:

1. Flysight GPS for data acquisition. http://www.flysight.ca

2. Import .csv file from the Flysight in to Paralog. http://www.paralog.net/

3. Export the data from Paralog as a .ssa subtitle track, you can customize the data displayed using these commands http://www.paralog.net/help/ExportCommands.htm
Attached is the template I used as an example. The templates are located in the Paralog folder (example path: C:\Documents and Settings\jb\Paralog\templates\subtitles)

3a. The appearance of the subtitles can be further customized using the commands found here: http://www.paralog.net/files/SubTitler/SubTitler.txt

4. You'll need to download VirtualDub http://www.virtualdub.org/ and the Subtitler plugin http://www.virtualdub.org/virtualdub_filters

5. Open your video in virtualdub add the subtitle filter and select your .ssa subtitle - export and job done!

5a. You'll probably need to either tweak the in point of your video or the start of your subtitles to get the two to sink.

Thank you to Klaus at Paralog for his fast and complete customer support (as always).

Example video to follow - as soon as I make a flight worth all the effort :P

Even though you know it, I'll say it again, Paralog/Klaus is the bomb.:)
