Ironsides Round 4 Boardercross Speed/HR Video Idea

Post by Daleyg3 » Thu Jul 11, 2013 6:53 am

Hello everyone.

With Round 4 Boardercross (& Freestyle) this weekend, I have an idea that I've wanted to test for a while. This idea is to wear my Garmin Forerunner 305 GPS watch (literally records any stat you can think of) and Heart rate monitor, along with my helmet cam.

I will then edit a video of a mountainboarders boardercross race with live stats such as speed, heart rate, distance covered and time (of course).

Might just even do the same with a practice run just for comparison!

It'll probably take me a while to edit, as I'm a bit rusty and on a Linux course 14th-20th.. but just wanted to know your thoughts and if there's any better free software than movie maker to produce this? :)

Cheers!

i'll introduce you to Si and Mark on firday bud. Think they and some of the other Plymouth riders could well be game for it. Would be pretty cool to be able to see what a range of different riders bodies are up to on their runs.

It would be intresting to see what we go through and how hard it is on us, would be even better if you had a G-meter for those tight turns and crashes1

Gonna start the nightride edit this week, crazy how high my heart rate went. My running/sprint peak HR is 190 and doing 20mph down ironsides at night it was 188..

Walking up was 138, therefore riding down is better exercise? Weird in a way..

That's cool!
What did you use to overlay the data in the end? Ffmpeg?
And how did you go about syncing the footage to the data?

Garmin GPS & Heart rate monitor watch comes with PC software that looks at logs. I had to painstakingly make video captions every second or 2 dependent on what the graph in the Garmin software said!
