Addding Date And Time To Videos

Question

I know that that Sony saves the date and time information in the metadata of the .mts and .m2ts files. Is there any way to display those on the movies I create in Roxio Creator 10? Can I change the appearance and location? Please explain. Thanks.

I know that the Sony file formats store the date and recording time in the metadata in the files. I would like to display that on the videos in the movies I am creating in Roxio Creator 10. Is there a way of doing that? Can I change the appearance and location of the date and time? If so how? Thanks?

What program do you have? You are posting in the Creator 2011 forum but state you are using something you call Roxio Creator 10. There is no such program. There is the 4 year/version old Easy Media Creator 10( EMC 10) an the 2 year old Roxio Creator 2010.

 

None of the Roxio versions are able to display the date/time-stamp.

First you posted in Creator 2010. Just to make sure that we give you the right answer, please clarify if you have Creator 2010, Easy Media Creator 10 or Creator 10.X (DE or similar).

 

I believe the correcct answer for all of the above is no. You can add date and time as an overlay so it shows up on the video. How important is time to your project? You can get a video of a clock and add that as a video if you are just trying to show time passing.

 

 

Ask a question ONLY ONCE to prevent confusion.

Sorry for posting more than once, but when I posted it did not appear that they were posting. I am actually using Creator 2010, and having the accurate time and date is very important as these are recordings of depositions.

Is there good software that will create a transparent overlay where I can enter the time, position the date/time, set fonts, etc?

Use Video Wave and add the information as a texct overlay to the Internal track of the individual dispositions.

 

Some camcorders will place the time and date stamp on the video whhich is impossible to remove. Why don't you look for one of those? Check your manual to see if yours can be used that way. Those are fixed positions.

Have a look at this utility. This is a quote from the FAQ: "vATS works only on AVCHD format video files. AVCHD format video files typically named as *.m2ts or *.MTS."

 

I have been using the vDTS program to add the date/time to my DV avi videos and it works very well.

I am sure there are many 3rd party programs that do the same thing.
