I recently created a video which has associated data. Like position, altitude, direction in another file. I know the time offsets for each event and would like to put this data into the video as text. Is there a way without changing the video text areas manually?

Thanks in advance,

Dashware is an (free) app which does just this.

Telemetry Data Overlay on your Videos

Easily display GPS, vehicle, physiology, and environment data from smartphones and dedicated loggers.

Besides CSV text files, it imports data from many formats. You don't have to render the final composited video from Dashware. You can export a synchronised chroma-key ready video of the overlay for import into your video editor.

  • This looks exactly right, but I will be checking it out tomorrow. I will probably be back to accept your answer shortly, unless something even cooler comes up, but this is pretty awesome. Commented Feb 27, 2016 at 1:27
