Oh you stuck the film on your lens, what if you stuck it on the meter, just the section where the speedo display is (not entire meter face) would that work?This is the film I used, I cut it to fit over the lens of my GoPro, which allowed me to see the speed clearly, but the camera masked it. It only really worked when I was upright in relation to the screen. I imagine if you got some large enough, that you could fit it to the dash and have it twisted so that the dash is almost blanked out, so the camera can't see it but still visible enough for the rider to do so.
Aye, that is what I was trying to explain in this bit:Oh you stuck the film on your lens, what if you stuck it on the meter, just the section where the speedo display is (not entire meter face) would that work?
I think the general goal is to have the speedo reading not be clearly visible, if it's fudged up or fuzzy it's good enough.
Since I know you're using Resolve... the Color tab is great for masking speedometers for footage you're going to use in a video. I am lucky in that my Harley's speedometer is circular, so it makes the masking VERY easy.It's an interesting discussion. I've made a few videos where I was mildly speeding now and then but nothing I'd be worried about legally if a cop pulled me over. I haven't gotten an actual speeding ticket in over 15 years.
If I am speeding it's only on roads I know very well with very little traffic on them.
Netherlands is the same, and i think Belgium as well.I'm not sure about Belgium traffic law, but in the UK, there's probably enough on your videos for at least careless driving offence, regardless of speed. If not yourself, then some of your riding mates. Though in UK law, the cops would need to supply an exact time and location to pin that on you (some nice clarifications on one of the 44Teeth vids with the White Dalton motorcycle solicitors).
I hope it works for you, but this post is really reminding me to finish my Blurring Speedos & Plates in Resolve video... it's mostly done, just needs audio and some tweaks.Unfortunately with these wonderful clear TFT screens we now get it is quite hard to keep it out of shot if you creep over the limit. I recently ordered some self adhesive polarizing film and have applied 2 layers of it to my Moto Guzzi V85's dash to darken it down a bit, the first layer didn't make much difference, but the second seems to have made it a lot darker. I haven't tried it out on the road yet to see if it is dark enough to be less obvious to the camera, as it is still visible to the eye in my garage. I don't want to go too dark as I do still want to be able to read it. I really wish their was a way to do it to the camera like I tried with my KTM Duke, but the moment your head is not inline with the dash it reappears that way.
Yes I agree, if I only have the footage that's the only option. Tracking the speedo is very tedious for me my OCD for the blur tracking doesn't help at allBecause sometimes you just wanna use the footage, but don't want to readily admit to speeding
And, it only takes a couple of minutes in the editor to blur it out.
