    You mean a 'date/time stamp'?

    Two ways....

    1. Do it in camera at the recording stage with ethe camera's in built date/time stamp facility

    2. Use Video Studio's overlay title feature and simply type in the date/time by hand.

    Either way it should only appear for a few seconds and not for the duration of the recording, unless it's 'surveillance footage'.

    hello

    If you go in to the On Screen Menu and press Arrow Down you'll see a setting called DATA CODE this is the date and time stamp mode. You can turn it on and off as will through your recordings

    If you have already captured the footage and providing it is digital- AVI (captured by firewire) then Ulead VideoStudio 9 has two options to allow you to make a note of the actual recording date.

    1. - Allow you mouse cursor to hover over a thumbnail in the library - after a second or so an information box will appear - the bottom line of information should say "Recording Date"

    2. - Go to "File >> Preferences" and right at the very bottom under the 'General' tab click to tick in the box against "Display DV timecode on preview window" - this will show the recording timecode in the window when you play the video.

    Then as kevo has already said use that information to make a small title box to display onscreen for a few seconds.
