Easy way to overlay game score onto filmed video?

I am in charge of my high school basketball team's video recording. The coach asked me earlier in the season to shoot the scoreboard now and then so when they review the film with the team they can refer to the score at the time. However, in the heat of the battle so to speak, I often times don't do this as faithfully as I should. I can calculate the score from the times I do show the scoreboard by counting the buckets, but this isn't really something the coaching staff should have to do. So I thought, why not try to do what the TV games do and do a PIP or text with the running score. I wouldn't mind doing that manually if there was some way to leave up the score area the entire video and just change the score as the game progresses. But it would be mind-numbingly time consuming to have to create a new title every time the score changes. That would be something on the order of creating 100 to 200 different titles.

So, does anyone know of a plug-in or something of the sort to allow this to happen?

There are Time counters that can keep up with the video as it plays.
The time display can be placed on top of the video.

Counts in 1/100 second increments:

Counts in Video Frames.

It may be possible to replace the Time display on the score board with the time display of these programs.

It sound like you might want a bar like in this video.

This video may help on making the bar like some TV stations use.

if you can get second camera and tripod - you could leave it focused on the score, and use PIP - and a mask to show the score in a corner of the movie

Old post i know, but same question.

I need toeadd score for table tennis matches, then numbers of sets, + points for each set. then from 8 to 12 counters to manage, like : blank, 0, 1, 2,..., 30

I have An idea but unable to know if possible :
Have 12 videos as counters, and use something like key frame or/and freeze to align when the counter must show the next number + freeze some then a set is finished for ex.

There are several other discussions that should have come up in your search. See if this one or this one will work.
