Burn-In Time Stamp


Example Time Stamp

Example Time Stamp

This allows you to burn-in to the video frames the date and time that the video was recorded, provided that the camera stored the date and time in the metadata area of the video file (or sidecar file). The date and time changes in real time.


You may like to take a look at one of these time-stamping tutorial which steps you quickly through the procedure, then later on when you are ready you can delve into the Burn-in Timestamp tool in greater detail:

Under the hood, this tool actually uses the more general Burn-In Metadata tool which can be used to burn-in the date and time, and lots more information such as camera exposure details and GPS locations (if available).


If you just want to burn-in a time stamp (i.e. the date and time of recording) then choose the Burn-In Time Stamp tool. But if you want to burn-in other items of metadata then use the Burn-In Metadata tool instead.




INFORMATION: If you do not want to wait for the whole of your video file to be time stamped, and you simply want a single time-stamped still-frame image (perhaps to send as an email attachment or to include in a document), you should instead use File > Save Image or File > Copy Image to Clipboard - see Save Image and Copy Image to Clipboard for more details.
