Clock on Mechanics Explorer Video

1 view (last 30 days)
Dear all,
I hope this message finds you well,
Right now, I am working with the library simscape. There, it is possible for some mechanical assembles to export a video or animation with the help of Mehcanics Explorers. However, I have one problem to discuss:
  • When exporting the video to any desired format, it does not contain the simulation time. Hence, I would like to know if it is possible to add a clock so that the simulation time is visible in parallel to the animation. I know that the video plays along the simulation time, so the video's time corresponds to the simulations time. But could it be shown an external clock on the animation?
  • Is it possible to add other variables. For example, velocities of the elements, accelerations, and positions? it would be amaizing if I could add some cool displayes also?
Thanks for the time and I would appreciate any help from your side.

A simple solution is to do a screen recording that includes the Time display at the bottom of the Mechanics Explorer. Powerpoint has screen recording capability (Insert - Screen Recording)
