Default Video Processor plugin text overlay

Hi,

is it possible to have the Video Processor plugin preset text overlay to take info from the audio file more or less automatically? It does take the name of the sound clip initially, if you hit command-s.

Thanks!

Not to my knowledge.
It supports take name(if used as takeFX) or trackname(if used as trackFX) as default text, afaik.

It can be programmed and I'm on it programming a VideoProcessor-preset, so you can display anything you like, but it's still work in progress.

Sounds great, I just want a few lines of sound file information on the screen, 1 frame only. So really basic.

It is for temporary bounces of audio files stored online as video files.

Is it usable for the above?

Yes. As long as you can get the information somewhere into a string in Lua by any function, it's possible.

Which information do you need to be displayed?

Basic info:
Name of wav file
Length
Date created

Could be good too:
Number of channels
Notes

---

The workflow could be:
open project template (with frame and export settings set up.)
drag a wav file to a track
do the video processor text addition
render to folder

Should be possible.

Not yet. It will be part of my Ultraschall-API within the next two versions. Still need to tune some more things as I will try to make better video-processor-integration, which will be programmeable via Lua.
The text-preset will be the first such "module" to be released.

If that's done, I can easily write you a script to do it.

Does it exists a text overlay preset that reads the Notes of the current item being played?

I'd like to make a lyrics video and ideally be able to define the font type at track level but the text and position to be displayed be defined by the notes/plugins on the empty items being played (they could overlap and crossfade).


Do you think sth like this is feasible or are there already better methodes?

Yes, with my still unfinished one. But it still needs refinement but it'll do it.

If you want to code it yourself, you probably will need to send the notes from a defer-luascript to the VideoProcessor via gmem, which is fiddly but works.

From the VideoProcessor itself, it can't directly read it to my knowledge so "feeding it from the outside" is the only way currently.

Dunno, if jsfx could do the sending of itemnotes via gmem too.
