Video start time

Postby shepner » Wed Apr 19, 2017 2:05 am

Would it be possible for LapTimer to start and include the video capture on IOS a few seconds before the start trigger point? It would be useful at the autocross events I attend. Also, this would be useful way to remove the bleached out image I have on all of my recordings. If it helps, I have an iPhone 6s

Not working for standing starts, but for regular starts you can start the video manually while staged. Either enabled the Manual Timing option in LapTimer's Settings (which will give you a start button in Timer View), or use the small red button in Video Preview. Doing this, you will get a video covering the time from staging to when you stop it again manually.

Yeah, Ive done that on occasion and hate doing it. At that point the last thing I want to do is to look through screens on my data logger for little buttons. Its distracting and far too easy to mess something up. I usually end up worrying about that and generally being somewhat distracted from what Im there to do.

Yes, I agree. I have an extension on my long feature requests list, but the above is all I can offer currently.
