Picture in Picture Editing

16 comments

Is there an easy free video editor available for Windows to create the PIP effect (like the K2 Ride at Sunset and Night video by David Cappelaere)?

I have downloaded a few only to be disappointed. Any suggestions?

 

Also, my GPS receiver did not function at all straight out of the box. Fortunately Innovv said they will send me a replacement which I look forward to receiving (good response). Has anyone else encountered this?

 

I have had corrupted video files which is a pain so will format the SD card and see if this helps.

What have you tried up to now..

I cannot remember sorry, but I downloaded Filmora and Video Editor yesterday, after doing some more research, to try when I get home from work which is unfortunately another 4 weeks away.

Dashware was recommended on this site at one time.

Dashware...Very interesting program, many uses/options, Free, Have already downloaded a copy, but I do not think it has picture in picture capability.. It will support a video that already displays pip, but will not add pip to video by itself...

OK wasn't sure. I use my current video editing software that I purchased. (Corel Video Studio)

MAGIX Fastcut, try this one also.

Please always keep GPS logo up and and the GPS module exposure to the sky. Be sure, you have not switched off GPS from the App settings.

Pay attention to the connections from the power converter. Yellow should connect to the switched power source from DVR. Red should connect to the positive terminal of battery.

Thank you for your response Rock.

 

I will look for MAGIX Fastcut.

 

All wiring connections are exactly as they should be and yellow is soldered to a switched power source. GPS logo is up (photo sent to Felicia Chen) and in a clear line of sight with the sky. GPS app settings are switched on.

 

I have tried disconnecting/re-connecting, power cycling etc. Nothing I've done seems to initiate the GPS.

@Dean Oxwell

Well noted, As Felicia promised to send you new GPS, for sure, you will get it.

Thank you Rock for your comments and assistance. I appreciate it.

 

I am not in a position to connect to my camera system for a few weeks (I work away from home) but I had a look at the settings from the INNOVV website for the K2 app and did not see a GPS On/Off setting. I did see a map setting though, which is set to Google maps.

Unless they have changed it with an update, after selecting settings look to the bottom of the first set of selections, last option just above the memory card section... it is possible that you may have to connect an operational GPS unit for that selection to show up...

 

As with Dashware, I do not believe MAGIX Fastcut does PIP... Still it appears to also be a impressive program...It is also free after after 30 day trial with limitations...

Thanks for the feedback Waren. I don't recall seeing that, but I could be wrong. My GPS never connected and the LED just kept blinking so that may be the case. I spoke to the good lady at home last night and she told me it looks like the replacement GPS has arrived so I will put it to the test when I get home at the end of November.

 

Thanks to INNOVV for sending the replacement :-)

We have sent from emails to RaceRender for cooperation, but without reply so far.

 

They made great software for racing.

Thanks a lot Mike and Rock. I've just downloaded the free version of RaceRender3 and will have a play with it. :-)

You could also check out kdenlive. It is a video cut- and editing tool, but you can easily make a PiP with it. The Windows Version is beta, but nevertheless it is worth a try.

  • Loving this product so far. Question is: I'm a dual-sport rider and often take my GS Adventure offroad. How does the K2 hold up in rocky, rough riding environments? Heading back to Baja next month, and I would love to have it fully functional but I'm considering leaving the DVR back at the hotel. Advice?
  • I just completed a 14,000 Mile trip through the US, Europe, and a good deal of Asia. The entire trip, the Innov K2 was running, and capturing video. During this timeframe, my Sena Momentum INC Pro helmet's camera failed, so I was left with just the Innov K2 to capture my trip. In my case, I ride a 2015 BMW GSA, and the control unit for the K2 is installed under the seat, attached to a power distributor. The unit was installed at the BMW dealer in Charlotte, by a Tech that I really trust, and who did an excellent job. First of all, this thing (the K2) was bulletproof. It started and stopped, just as expected, each time I started the bike, and it never missed. The video quality when riding more slowly, was exceptional, but the quality when riding faster is slightly less than perfect, but still very good, and certainly acceptable. I used a 256 GB SD card, class 10, and I never completely filled the card, although we rode some days, as many as 16 hours, and 400 miles. Pls keep in mind that riding in Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and China will be on severely compromised roads, so our average speed was lower, and a 400 mile day is a very long day. While I love this camera, there are a few areas that need to be addressed. 1) I needed to have a set of tweezers with me at all times, in order to remove the SD card so that I could download the video. 2) The spring mechanism that holds in the SD card is strong enough that, on one occaision, it shot the SD card across the chamber that is under the seat, and the SD card ended up lost, somewhere in the body work of the bike. 3) The rubber cover that covers the SD Slot is too fragile, and it broke. This rubber piece has a tab on one end, and from opening up the cover, and closing it twice each day, the rubber piece broke, and made it much more difficult to get at the SD card. I'm going to need a new rubber piece sent to me. 4) Because the connector ends on the camera are as large as they are, the installation onto the bike was more complex, and more costly than I could have imagined. It was simply not possible to "slide the cable head through the cable channel on the bike", so the tank had to be removed, along with all the body work, in order to run the wires properly, in the wire harness channel. 5) I was unable to get the unit to accept the latest F/W upgrade, so I'll need to figure that out, once the bike arrives back in the US. 6) After installing the new app on my IOS device, I needed to delete the app, and reinstall from scratch, in order to have it connect to the WiFi network broadcast by the K2. These issues are relatively minor, but a bit annoying. So, they need to be fixed, but we cannot overlook the conclusion that this camera system is fantastic. Numerous times during the trip, someone would say to me that they thought that I did something, or wanted to know if I recorded an event that happened, and because the camera automatically starts recording, my answer was always yes, and I used the video to show what happened numerous times. I also used the video on my Blog, on a number of occasions. So, if you're interested in seeing the quality, you can visit www.motocliffnotes.info and look through the videos. You'll quickly find those that were recorded using the K2. And finally, because the front and rear cameras record to files, which are started and stopped within a 1/0 of a second of each other, I was able to easily build files which had picture in a picture, using Adobe Elements Premiere 2018. You really should look at some of these videos. The F+R views are compelling. This system is awesome, and I can't wait to use it again, for my next trip. How do I go about getting a replacement cover, for the recording unit? Sample videos of PIP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kHYN1EyoWU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-KbJL4oOa0
  • Would it be possible to have the DVR clock use Zulu time/GMT? I'm a 24-hour-time type of person. I would rather the system time and filename timestamps were in 24-hour format, vs. remembering whether DST applies or not. This would also eliminate timestamps that are an hour off, because DST changed but I haven't connected the DVR to the K2 app lately.
