    All New - Video Ride Creator (Preview)


    Although I have been working on for awhile, until now it has not gotten the love it so desperately needed.
    Well that's about to change! :thumbs

    With a ton of new features, and a much more user friendly system, the new Video Ride Creator is a snap to use!

    The way I see it, there are 3 main ways to make Video Rides for Simulators.

    1) Create a telemetry file from scratch for a pre-existing video.
    Take your favorite scene from a movie and create the telemetry file by hand.
    Or record new telemetry while watching the video. (in slow speed) ;)
    (Both options should be viable.)

    2) Reformat a purchased Ride Film for SimTools.
    You purchase a Video that comes with a text file with all the cueing data for a simulator.
    You need to be able to re-order the file and scale it correctly for SimTools.

    3) Sync Video with Telemetry that was recorded live at the same time.
    You mount a camera to a car and record Telemetry at 25 captures per sec.
    There needs to be a way to sync the files together later.

    I’m happy to say that the new Video Ride Creator will satisfy all of these requirements and more.

    Here are some Highlights
    - Undo & Redo Buttons!! (Up to 100 moves - This one was challenging!)
    - Manipulate Multiple ‘Points’ at the Same Time. (You can move 1 to 200 at a time)
    - Live Telemetry Recordings (with sender example source code ready to post!)
    - Telemetry Point Doubling
    - Telemetry Offset
    - Axis Scaling (by slider, by a known max value, or by percent)
    - Axis Shifting
    - Axis Smoothing
    - Axis Flipping
    - Axis Swapping
    - Exact Value Editing
    - Telemetry Importer
    - Axis Zooming
    - All New GUI

    Preview Pics :cheers

    Like with movie subtitles, I wonder if there is an online searchable database of movie telemetry ?

    +1 using a Xbox/Steam/Oculus controller for recording telemetry.
