Video File Compatibility

Postby carter » Thu Jul 24, 2008 5:05 pm

TraqStudio can usually work with MPEG-2, AVI and WMV files. If, however, you have problems with these formats or have video in another format you may be able to convert it to a format usable by TraqStudio.

We have created a simple converter, TQConvert, that will work in many situations. You can download it, for free, here:

http://traqmate.com/downloads/videoconverter/TQConvertInstall.exe

This will install TQConvert.exe on your system. Instructions are included in the readme.txt file.

or you can use one of the utilities for video file conversion available on the internet. These include ffmpeg (http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu/) and 'Super' by eRightSoft (http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html)

In any case, please let us know of any issues you may have.

We have updated TQConvert to provide the ability to re-size video output to 640x480. You can download the TQConvert installation here:

TQConvert was freshened to fix a bug when used under Windows Vista.

Excuse me, but in my case this is like selling ice in winter. It does not read the .MP4 (MPEG4) files that Chasecam Diva generates. It converts only the first 5 seconds of the file and then stops -- which is the exact behavior that TraqStudio (or rather, its child process, TVVwrite) exhibits when trying to write an MP4 video.

Still looking for a conversion solution, ideally for a PC (Windows XP OS), but I will take one for the Mac if necessary.

Please note, not all .mp4's are created equal and that is the issue at hand here. We haven't tested the Diva but we appreciate you letting us know about the error you are seeing.

There are plenty of converters out there, I would recommend this one.

I have a feeling if you took the .mp4 the Diva created and 'converted' it to an .mp4... it would work in TS.

Sorry for the issue, we are looking into it.
Thanks

This converter sort of works, but it muddles up the video a little. I have not tested if Traqstudio will read and write the resulting video, because I figured a different way:
1. Export the data file from TraqStudio as a .csv file in Trackview format.
2. Import the video and the above .csv data into Dashware (a $49.95 software from Chasecam - the license allows you to run the s/w in 3 computers).

Then cut videos from Dashware. Which btw has a lot more dash alternatives.

Thanks for looking into this, and I'm glad I eventually found a solution (even though it's a hybrid).
