I *think* my BI 4 64 bit is configured for direct-to-disc. If I tell BI 4 to include text overlay and graphics it does. Low quality video due to 512 kbps bitrate. 4 captures at 14% i7 cpu. Maybe I just think it's doing direct-to-disc?
@tom95521When you record in bvr format and direct to disc, the time and date info is stored, but not added to the recorded video so you will not see it on playback. When you export you can add the correct time and date. Any other overlay is the current overlay and not a previously saved overlay. My guess is that you exported the video just after recording it, that is why at 0:34 the update time for the weather overlay changes to 6:27:30 while the time stamp is 6:26:16...you can test this by changing your overlay color or update the weather info and export the same clip again. You will see the current info and color.
I stumbled across this old thread today seeking an answer to another question.
When recording in bvr format and direct-to-disc, my current "work around" for capturing user-defined overlay text data that is relevant to an alert event is to check the 'Store alerts as high res files' control on the 'Camera Properties | Record' tab.
Whenever I need to inspect the overlay text that was relevant at the time of a particular alert, I simply open its high-res image (usually located in the 'Clips and archiving' Alerts folder).
To avoid unnecessarily capturing too many 'high res' images, I've been experimenting with using cloned cameras with more restrictive trigger definitions.
Perhaps there is finally a good reason to 'Store alerts as high res files'.
