I haven't used it yet but I was told recently that you can save logged data on remote tablest/phones if they are connected (bluetooth/wifi) during the datalogging and running the RaceCapture app. So if you're using a phone/tablet as a display it can automatically save the data to that same device. T...

Getting your data into video with RaceRender

Hey folks, I wrote a beginner's guide to using RaceCapture with RaceRender. RaceRender is a very popular software tool you can use for free (with a watermark in your videos, pay to remove plus unlock features) to overlay a myriad of data sources on top of video. A lot of people have been challenged ...

RaceCapture Multi-Display Demo Video

Hey folks, I put together a video demonstrating my application of the super cool multi-display feature of the RaceCapture Product line. I figured it might be of interest to potential and existing users of the products that aren't yet leveraging displays fully. https://youtu.be/ul9FW9I9Exs http://www...

Configurable audio alerts

The idea I have is using headphones while driving, something like a bluetooth headset, with which I can hear audible alerts from the RaceCapture App. Perhaps a Text To Speech of the sensor name and "Warning" or "Critical" that repeats periodically. Like if Oil Pressure was too low you would hear "Oi...

Logs go back in time

Using the latest mk3 firmware (2.11.0 I believe). Had the initial log timestamps go back in time a few ticks. Found this because it really made RaceRender screw up. The first four timestamps are as follows: 1495205968458 1495205968378 1495205968448 1495205968458 Note how it goes back in time for two...

On a whim I tried a hunch and edited the column title "Oil PressurePSI" and removed the PSI. I then had to close the app to retry a reload as I couldn't get the app to open up the dialog for selecting the log file again. After restarting the app and selecting the modified log file I then get a dupli...

v1.9.0 app bug? - duplicate column name

Using v1.9.0 of the Windows app on Windows 10. Trying to import a log for analysis. Getting an error "duplicate column name: Oil PressurePSI". Checked the data, only one column has this name that I see. Somewhat related, the input's name is actually "Oil Pressure", and the unit is PSI. For some reas...

Bryan's right, my script does a lot of data cleanup which seems to make life much easier with RaceRender, usually working after conversion without further data modification. I just had a race weekend with data and video so I'll take this opportunity to write up a workflow for RaceRender in the wiki.

Personally I find Race Render easy to use, enough so that I paid for the full software package. I can't say I've mastered it but it's worked alright so far. Here's a video where I added a lot of the RCP data to my video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAwaJmYB7b8 It's been years since I tried anyth...

Mk3 can sync to a total of three displays I believe? One via Bluetooth, two via wireless. I might be misremembering though. I can confirm one bluetooth and one wireless simultaneously does work as I tested that the other day.

Despite being the one who wrote the conversion script I'm pretty out of it when it comes using DA.

Is this what you're talking ...
