Question about Sony Video Cameras
I shot footage with this camera and had the date and rec set to on- big mistake- now the date and time is superimposed on footage- there are a few times- when that information disappears but after a minute or so it re appears. Is there any way to remove that information during play back-please help- any advice- i had no idea this would occur and don't know if 'super imposed ' really means 'burned'
my email- firstname.lastname@example.org- or email@example.com
With the settings set to include the date and time during the recording process an internal character generator creates the date and time and this is merged with the video signal from the CCD before recording. Since the merge occurs before the recording, they are part of hte same "picture" that is being recorded. The short answer is no, you can not separate these two images as they are at this point a sinlge image. High end pro decks contain what is called a time code that is recorded on a separate track. In that case, the "monitor" output from a tape deck will show the time, while the standard video output will not.
Hope this helps,
