    I use Dashware to integrate data/video.

    This is a video produced using Dashware/Vbox/Datalink II

    Awesome.......... how do you get the data out of Datalink II and into Dashware ? Do you have to do some kind of export as others have suggested ?

    Yep, export the data, however from memory Dashware can accept native files from the IQ3.

    If my memory is wrong, you can export the data from Datalink II into a CSV file. This CSV file can then be mapped into a format that can be read by Dashware. If you are exporting a lot of columns it does take some time to map columns into Dashware, however you only ever need to do this once.

    I have used data from Innovate as well in the past by mapping columns from a CSV file into Dashware

    Once you have your video and data in Dashware you then sync (by time) the video and data together. I'm lucky in that the video from VBox already has data overlaid so I can sync based on this, normally I choose the speed crossing the start/finish line. If you have a camera pointed at the feet you can then sync by using TPS or brake.

    Another technique I have used is to trim the export to just the lap I want to use and then sync it when crossing the start/finish line. The syncing can be a little frustrating to get a perfect match

    f1racr just noticed you are in NZ. I just spent the past 3 weeks helping a project in Auckland (I live in Queensland) and maybe heading there again before the end of the year.
