Hello, I just loaded Shotcut on my computer and for someone not very good with video editing, I am enjoying my experience so far. My question is regarding creating an analysis video of someone running any track event, and to be able to embed one or two ‘running stopwatches’.
Example 1: I have a video of someone running a mile (actually 1600 meters, or 4 laps) on a running track, with a little bit of footage pre- and post-race.
- What I would like to do is to embed in the video, only during the race part of the video, a timecode/stopwatch that that starts at zero seconds (0:00.00 formatted minutes:seconds:milliseconds) when the race starts, and stops at, for example, 3:59.99, when the race ends. Is this possible using #timecode" in a format that is consistent with the race in question (e.g, a sprint race may just need seconds and milliseconds, as in 10.00).
- If so, is there a way to embed a second stopwatch in the video with a start/stop for each lap, assuming the video clearly shows where the runner finishes each lap, such that at any point in the final created video, one would know the total elapsed time and also the time for each lap without having to do any math based on running time.
The only related how-to post I could find is listed below, but the answer was over-my-head and I could not figure out how/if it could be applied to my question/example.
Thanks in advance for any help.
