Post Convert log files to CSV or ASCII 
Is there an easy way to convert the log files to CSV or ASCII format? I was able to do it by hand or with a script, but replacing all the blank cells in excel with a value still takes a long time. Does racecapture only export the sparse log files?

The log files are in a sparse CSV format, correct. This was done to reduce the amount of data needing to be written to the SD card, so maximum logging performance could be achieved.

The export function in the app emulates the sparseness of the RaceCapture/Pro CSV log file for consistency reasons.

It would be pretty straightforward to write a script that creates a fully populated log file.

Are you running into a problem using the sparsely populated file with another program?

I think you're asking about a script that's already be written Smile :

The rccsv2gems script converts the .log to a csv with all of the cells populated.

Correct. Most of the analysis programs I use need a data point for each channel at each timestamp. I'm using WinDarab from Bosch Motorsports.

I'll try the rccsv2gems script mentioned above.
