Post New Conversion Tool to Circuit Tools (vbo) format 
Not sure where to put this on the forums exactly, but here seems like a start. I dusted off my long unused C++ skills and built a little conversion tool to interpolate and convert Race Capture .log files into Circuit Tools .vbo format, including the ability to link video files if desired. This turned out to be rather more involved than it appears on the surface, but the tool seems to be working reliably enough now to share. Zip file with Windows command line program and instructions attached. I find CT more useful for analysis, especially with video included.

The only significant limitation at the moment is that CT computes lateral acceleration from velocity and heading delta, and RC does not capture heading directly. My hackish attempt at computing heading from GPS fixes isn't good enough yet, and so the default CT lateral acceleration channel is basically useless. However, the raw acceleration data from RCP is available in the converted CT file as auxiliary channels AccelX and AccelY.

Try it out and let me know how it works. When I get a bit more time, I will post this as a Github project and maybe create Mac or Linux versions if there is enough demand. And the "documentation" needs some work Smile

Very cool. Their program alongside with Video Analysis is quite good and useful. If you would open your source on github, we could contribute a bit. For example with a gui or a sync tool for the video or unit conversion etc...

Yes I'll post it on github when I get a spare hour this weekend ...

Post Github? 
Did you get a chance to post the source to github yet? Id also like to contribute.

Can anyone confirm if this tool still works correctly?

I have tried it with the sample logs Brett uploaded some years ago, and it appears to work until you try and compare more than 1 lap and the graph plots go all over the place.

I'm hoping it's just an issue with the sample files? I really want to be able to use the RCP with Circuit Tools.
Thanks
