I am wondering how to add text which is updated along the time code of the video.

Concretely, I have a gopro footage and a file of some performances values (speed, heart rate, cadence,...) that I want to overlay with correct values at the right moment.

I have a csv file with time in first col, and other parameters in following cols.

I'm quite new in video production, so I not particularly familiar to any software (so there's no need on a particular platform solution)

EDIT - solution : I found a nice solution perfectly answering my question : http://www.dashware.net . I'll try it later but it seems the right solution !

    I can supply a detailed answer when I have more time but your best bet is to use ffmpeg, specifically its drawtext filter. Basic idea is to create a script that parses your CSV file and composes one very looong ffmpeg command containing drawtext filters - one for each line in your CSV. – Gyan Nov 23 '15 at 13:34
  • Davinci Resolve lite is free, and you can "burn in" timecode. – Jason Conrad Nov 23 '15 at 17:11
  • @JasonConrad , what do you mean by "burn it" ? do you have any reference about resolving my issue with this software ? – nmatton Nov 24 '15 at 11:16
  • Thanks @Mulvya ! This sounds nice, I'm exited to hear more ! – nmatton Nov 24 '15 at 11:27
  • "burn in" means write the timecode visually to the video file. You can also write other information using the tools in Resolve. Page 846 of the user manual. google.com/… – Jason Conrad Nov 24 '15 at 17:33
