Video overlay software

Video Export Layout Designer

The "Video Export Layout Designer" is the software that you need to use to design the graphics overlay on the video exports from the Analysis software. The video overlay can be almost any combination of bitmaps, dials, bargraphs, text and numerical values. It is also possible to only show particular graphics under particular conditions making it very flexible and powerful.

A number of example layouts are supplied and can be downloaded from the cloud server, so it is not necessary to design your own unless you have an application that requires it. Existing layouts can be modified and other layouts loaded into each other.

The software doesn't include any method of editing the bitmaps, that must be done on an external application and loaded in. The bitmaps use alpha blending, which varies the transparency of the image, offering smooth blending and transparency through to the underlying video.

All our software is available as a single download which includes all programs and the documentation. This is available for free download here.

The Overlays

Having many ready made overlays makes it quick and easy for anyone to get up and running with the system. It is also possible to make a completely custom overlay, either by modifying one of ours or starting completely from scratch. All factory overlays are available to download from the cloud server - accessed from the open file menu.

All the overlaid graphics are:

  • 24 bit colour (with a maximum of sixteen million colours)
  • Alpha blended, so that all graphics may be made translucent if required
  • Anti-aliased, so that the graphics look smooth and professional

The software enables you to design the layout of the screen overlays to meet your needs. Once this has been done, the layout is saved and used in the Analysis software to overlay on a video export.
