Looping 30 second video with a continuous counter in top right
on Mar 27, 2018 at 12:52:50 pm

I'm creating a 30 second video to go on an event stand that the client has requested to also have a counter of how many miles their company has driven counting up continuously through out the day. Now I could obviously make a 7 hour video of this 30 second loops with the counter going up but id rather not. Any suggestions welcome.

You need two streams of video to do this -- separate playback devices, one capable of seamless looping -- plus a device to key one piece of video (the counter) over the other (the loop) for output to the monitor as a single stream. Do you have such items?

Let's confirm we're all on the same page:

You do NOT want this for a web page.
You want this for playback out to a TV set or a video monitor.
Is this correct?

What about doing your main video the way you normally do and then put that video in Flash or an HTML wrapper and then you have the ability to overlay a counter (which are crazy easy in either platform).
