Thread: Dumb question - VideoStudio8 - not capturing date and time

    Default Dumb question - VideoStudio8 - not capturing date and time

    Hi all - I'm simply trying to capture and burn whole rake of MiniDV tapes to DVD for a friend. I'm not editing in anyway, just setting up some menus / chapters and burning as one hit.

    In the past I'm sure VS8 captured the time and date information that shows on the camcorders LCD? I've recently changed to a Sony HandyCam, I know VS8 is reading the time and date data as it shows it in the info pane during the capture process. Anyone know how to output in onto the final project?

    You are quite right, Videostudio does capture the date and time stamp but doesn't offer any functionality to superimpose this on your final video.

    You will need a third party software utility to do this. You could always try this

    Good luck

    COMPAQ something or other with 500Gb Boot Disk, 1Tb external Firewire Disk, 4Gb Memory and a super duper sound card, 19" TFT Monitor etc etc etc
    Sony TRV33e : Sony TRV310e : Canon XM2
    Sony Vegas Studio editions to v11

    Remember, there is always more to learn than there is to teach.

    Thanks for the sanity check purejammy! Thought I was missing something there................

    As well as the vDTS software that you provided a link to, I've also found this and it's free:

    Go to DVDate v6.0.1

    I'll give it a whirl when I get home tonight
