Storyteller with GPS

pbyhistorian Nov 22, 2012 11:13AM MST

As of 2012-Nov-22, a comment in an Amazon review is stopping me from buying the Contour+2.

The review said to merge GPS data with movies shot with the camera, I had to upload the video to Contour's web site. I won't put my video in the public domain. The review added that the clips had to be very short.

Has Storyteller reached the point where I can do *all* GPS-related tasks completely on my own Mac or PC?

I use Adobe Premiere for movie editing and making Blu Ray discs. It sounds like that will strip the GPS off our snowmobiling footage. In case I find a need to restore it, can Storyteller handle a two-hour HD source file?

Thanks for any help.

You don't need to upload to our community site to view our video with the GPS data in the vid. You can view that direct from our Storyteller program without having to share to the public. Storyteller can handle any amount of gig rated video for playback. if you wish to export your GPS data to an editing tool here are the instructions for that:

If you have recorded a movie that contains GPS data you can export the data in one of three different format.

To export the GPS data from a movie, start with the movie already imported in to Storyteller. From the Library view of Storyteller, select the movie whose and then choose File -> Export -> Export GPS data. You will then have the option to choose a location for saving the file. You will also be able to select between .GPX, .CSV, and .TXT formats.

There are times when you may want to import GPS data in to a movie, such as after you have edited it in a third party editor (a process that will strip GPS data out of a movie). To import GPS data to a movie, select the movie from the Library view of Storyteller. Click on File -> Export -> Import GPS data. Click on the Open GPS File button in the upper right corner. to select the file containing the GPS data. It must be in the .GPX format.

Once you have selected a file, a new dialog box will appear. On the left will be a window with your movie and on the right will be a window displaying the GPS track. Using the sliders under each window, find the place where the GPS data and your movie are aligned. A common way to do this is to find the place in your movie where the actual GPS data should begin. Once you have selected the spot in the movie where the GPS data should start, click the Save button.

Storyteller will then import the GPS data to the movie. Playing that movie in Storyteller on on the Contour website will display the GPS maps and track.
