Hi, is there any way to make a flipbook and print out the current time through vcomment?

I want to save the sequences and remember the simulation time.

I found a python script that gives me the system time, but I cant use getattrib or detail in viewport comment.

 

any idea Please???, 

Thank you Nikos

You could parent a font object to the camera and use it to create a custom overlay.

Paste this code into the font text field.

`system("date +%X")`

Thank you Atom,

I had found this command in the forum but I couldn't make it work :(

what I'm doing wrong?

I also tried to export file sequence with this ->$LT Local time - not including stretch or offset<- in the file name... No luck :(

I upload a file with a solution, but I still want to learn if there is a simpler solution than python and two nodes, like Atom solution, only one line... I dont know how to replicate Atom solution :(.
