    Time delta bar & other newbie questions

    Hi all,

    I purchased RaceRender ultimate last weekend to make some gauges for my telemetry. So far really loving the product!

    I made a time delta bar from using the this lap vs cur best lap field. I couldn't find a delta bar that came out-of-the-box (please correct me if I'm wrong) so I made two bar graphs with indexes of 0 - -3 and -3 - 0 respectively and coloured them red and green, and then stuck the bars end-to-end. You can see the result here: delta bar 01.png

    This seems to work pretty well but there are a few problems. The first one is that each box seems to show a single pixel line of the fill colour when the reading is at 0 and they should be showing nothing at all. The second problem is that in order to get the bars to line up perfectly back-to-back in the rendered video, I have to actually set them to overlap slightly in the editor. You can see both of those things here: delta bar 02.png

    Any thoughts on this?

    Lastly I've noticed that I can't adjust the width setting of a bar graph without also affecting the height, even if I disable the setting to maintain aspect ratio. And it seems like thickness (which I've been using to reduce the height, since the actual height setting is greyed out) can be adjusted without affecting the width of the bar. Thus, if I want to reduce the width but maintain the height I have to play around with these two settings which is a bit cumbersome. Please let me know if there is a better way to do this.

    Cheers!

    Also just wondering if anyone can tell me whether there's an ability to display split times and/or generate an optimal lap from the best sectors? I haven't been able to figure it out thus far. RaceChrono does export sector names (in the form of traps) in the csv data but I don't think there's any way to make RaceRender do anything with it.

    In these sorts of situations, I usually just make a graph myself: Bar Graph - Delta Current.rro

    This should be pretty close to what you want. If you have the Advanced/Ultimate Editions, then you should be able to modify the script to change the height/width however you like.

    You'll need to save that to "My Documents\RaceRender 3\Styles" (or the equivalent location where all other RaceRender files are stored). Then you can open RaceRender and choose the new graph.

    Displaying Split/Sector times is a highly requested feature that a lot of us users would love to see in RaceRender (especially with its inclusion in TrackAddict output), but sadly, it is not yet available. I'm currently side-stepping this in my own videos by adding extra "laps" at the end of my CSV files that essentially mimic what a sector would be:



    Right now, all of those displays are setup for only autocross (i.e. only work on Lap 1 and assume that anything else is simply additional lap list or sector information), but I'm hoping to make additional ones that would work with circuits in the future. Whenever I do finish those, I'll post all of them on the Shared Templates & Styles Forum
