Overlay varying output values over video



  • Hi, was wondering if there's a simple way to overlay (superimpose) text over an output video, where the text is actually a varying output? For instance, how to overlay in text the changing "position" value of the video, as it's playing? Is there a way to input this varying value into the "text" input of the "text draw" actor?

    cheers for any help, Mr J



  • I think the number to text actor is what you need here :-)

    See image attached.

  • Hello,

    I prefer to use the "text formater" actor, you can decide the length of the number ( P1:Z3.2 for 3 number left and 2 right)
