ADTF DAT Tool GUI

Since ADTF DAT GUI Tools version 0.1.0 there is a GUI based version of the DAT Tool provided by ADTF File Library, which can be found in the bin folder of this delivery (adtf_dattool_gui.exe). The tool operates the same way as its command line counterpart in one of the following ways:

Export Mode

In this mode you can select Streams you are interested in (even from multiple DAT files) and handle them with an appropriate Processor. Currently there are two Processors available, one to export the samples of a stream into a CSV file (see csv_processor example in ADTF File Library) and one to extract the images of a video stream (see ADTF3 Guides - ADTF DAT Tool Processor)
Processors can be written by any developer, to do so please have a look at the ADTF File Library. The binaries end with *.adtffileplugin and can be made available by clicking the Settings button and adding the folder which contains the binary. Each selected Processor can be configured, by clicking the button inside the "Properties" column. The available Processors for a given Stream depend on the compatibility check between Stream and Processor.

Merge Mode

In this mode you can select arbitrary Streams (even from multiple DAT files) and create a new DAT file out of them. You can rename any Stream in the column Merged Stream Name. Modifying the time frame of a Stream can be done by specifying a start timestamp (in the column Start TS) and a stop timestamps (in the column Stop TS). If you want to let the Stream start at a value greater than zero you can do so by setting the desired value in the Offset column. Clicking the button Merge... brings up a file dialog where you can choose the name of the DAT file to be created and the folder where it should be saved. Confirming the dialog automatically starts the merge process.

Edit markers

During recording it is possible to set markers within your adtfdat file. Since ADTF DAT GUI Tools version 0.2.0 the DAT Tool GUI allows you to edit or add markers after recording as well. To do so, use the Edit markers button and load the adtfdat file you want to adapt.
