Split times in VOB export?

Post by rrankins » Tue Aug 28, 2018 5:53 pm

I exported my latest track day at Lime Rock in VOB format so that I could import it into Track Attack to do some lap analysis after sitting through a coaching session on using data.
However, I was disappointed the the VOB data imported into Track Attack had not split times - the only split was the entire lap.
I was hoping to see what sections I was slower in and where I could look to improve my lap times, and also see what my virtual best lap could be.
Does HLT currently not output the split times when exporting to a VOB file, or is there something I need to do to get the split times exported?

Thanks,
Ray

Hi,

VBO is a logger format. This means data is not cut into laps but a continuous stream of data. It is the job of the importing / displaying program to apply full lap partitioning and splitting. LapTimer even adds all trigger informations (including splits), but this may be ignored by programs not implementing VBO imports completely. Racelogic's own app (Circuit Tools) e.g. always applies its own trigger definitions.

Thanks - it looks like Circuit tools correctly identifies the splits in the Laptimer VBO export.
Unfortunately, I like the interface of Track Attack better.
Any recommendations of any other lap analysis tools out there for the PC that I can try that will properly handle the Laptimer VBO files?

FYI - Latest version of TrackAttack (v1.09) was recently released and it now supports split times in the LapTimer VOB files
