Situations where the batch loader helps

Telemetry Overlay's Batch Loader function makes processing lots of videos extremely fast and simple. The batch loader helps if you have lots of videos for each athlete. For example:

  • Multiple camera positions for each athlete
  • Multiple runs for each athlete

The batch loader won't help if you have only one or two videos for each athlete.


How to use batch loader

Tip: We recommend setting the gauge update rate to half to speed up the final rendering. Here is a link explaining how to do it.

  1. Set your export folder.
    We suggest a dedicated folder for your rendered videos. Once videos have been exported, you can move them to a more permanent folder. This avoids your exported videos from overwriting your raw videos.
