VoltaicHD (Mac only) now includes a Timecode overlay function.

The settings for this function are able to be manipulated by modifying the text files TimeCodeFormat.txt which can be found under Voltaic->Show Package Contents->Resources.

Lines in TimeCodeFormat.txt can be commented out by putting a # as the first character of a line.

You can manipulate the following settings:

  • FONTNAME: the name of the Font to use. It must be a font installed on your machine
  • FONTSIZE: Size in points of the text
  • DATEFMT: Date mask
  • TIMEFMT: Time format mask
  • HALIGN: Horizontal offset of the Timecode box, in pixels, from the bottom left corner
  • VALIGN: Vertical offset of the Timecode box, in pixels, from the bottom left corner. Note than negative values are required
  • TIMEFIRST: When set to true Time goes on top line, when false, Date goes on top line
  • BOXMARGIN: X and Y width in pixels of the border between the edge of the text and outside of the box. Comment out this setting to have no box around the text.
  • TRANSPARENCY_PERC: Transparency of the box. 0 is very transparent, 100 is not transparent.
