Following my previous article about the incrustation of data acquired through a Starlane Stealth GPS 2, the result (unstable, with an “old-fashioned” look) and the difficulty of the thing pushed me to look for an alternative. .
By chance, I came across the DashWare software and I admit I was quickly convinced!
Simple, fast, customizable and offering a very nice result, I completely drop Digirace MMX (at least for embedding data on videos …)
I’ll try to explain to you again how to achieve this …
- DashWare (Version 1.9.1 at the time of writing)
- Your Starlane data imported into DigiRace MMX
- Your GoPro videos
- 1 PC powerful enough
1st step: Exporting Starlane data from Digirace MMX
We start in Digirace MMX (Analysis module)
We open the session we want to work on:
2nd step: Video/data synchronization in DashWare
After installing it, we now launch DashWare, to create a new project (File -> New Project):
We can now customize our screen by choosing to delete/add/resize our different gauges or logos:
Once satisfied with the “look” of our video, we go to the “Synchronization” tab. In order to obtain a smoother circuit layout, we first select a particular lap to display in the drop-down menu “Lap (s) to display”:
Still in the “Synchronization” tab, we will play with the progress bars to synchronize the passage of the starting line of the circuit on the video and the circuit map on the right (considering that the configuration of the circuit on the Starlane is consistent with reality):
Hoping to have helped you! Do not hesitate to write to me if more detailed explanations are needed !!
