Yvon Cognard posted in the forums that he created an open source command line application allowing the capture of multiple camera angles from a replay where you can record the whole replay or configure specific ranges. It controls OBS and creates a single clip by camera angle, making the video editing synchronization easy. Writing scripts, you can also control the camera live, as it plays, and avoid editing.

You’ll find the application and more details here:

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Darlington

  • Ellis –   p2 – Led some laps and just had nothing for the winner – on the longer run he would gap me for sure – he would have a 10 second lead and I would short pit and wipe it out but eventually he would get by me and drive on – great run to back up my win
  • Greg – PWrecked from lead with 100 to go
  • Hall – P12 top split.  Should have been top 10, but self made mistakes threw it away including missing the pits on green flag stop.  Insane long run speed.
  • Rochette P7 had speed stayed in top 10 through the first green flag stop when cautio. Came out just as i was leaving box putting me a lap down, moss the lucky dog for the next caution decided to take a wave around which did not work in my favor as i somehow ended 3 laps down for what was probably the longest green flag run i ever had in a nis
  • Sunday Open
    • Rochette- P3 definitely had a great car again but lapped cars that wanna race ya and also not understanding what a wave around is kept me behind em 
    • Greg p Back problems

Hall – p wrecked out by a clue less lap car

  • Race Richmond: 
  • Wed Open:
    • Hall –p13 tough top split, green flag running except early caution, climbed from p22 start
    • Ellis – p.17 – was loose on the 1st caution and took a guy out. I moved forward and ran top ten pretty much as high as 5th. About 35 to go a guy on the inside came up into me and 5 minutes damage.
    • Kyle P – P4 Started P9 and hung out in the top for most of the race. About halfway through I slid through turn’s 3 & 4 on a restart brought out the caution. Fell back to P-19 and worked my way up to a P4 finish. With Stephen L getting a P3 in the same split.
  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p.4 – Ran back half of top ten basically. At one point I spun off but saved it and worked back up – I was on outside once and they checked the guy behind me hit me, knocked me down into inside car, which wreck him. Turns out to be the same guy i wrecked on Wednesday. Later he came out many laps down and waited until I came around then ran hard side be side with me pushing me up in the corners… I eventually let off to get away from him. 

Rochette P13 caught in late wreck blah

League / Hosted Races

  • FastTrack Sim Racing League – 
  1.  David – p8  wrecked early, heavily damaged.  Car got the and bounced into me as I was passing
  2. Greg pwrecked out I went to enter the corner and he slowed way up and I got locked to him
  3. Mike – pblown up – was p7 before the caution and caught a lap down – took the wayaround and it put me back in the crap – where someone 3 cars ahead decided to let off the gas just after getting to 4th gear for about 2 seconds which stacked us all up and i got heavy front end damage and blew up shortly after.
