  • Logo's in VIRB Edit

    Is there a way to create custom logo's like the "Garmin VIRB" ones?

    Yes, but it's sort of hard to do.

    You'd have to create a custom gauge. To do that it's easiest to grab a gauge that already exists. All the gauges are in C:\Program Files (x86)\Garmin\VIRB Edit\Widgets.

    Look at SML_GARMIN_VIRB_dark_Logo.veg for example:

    Code:
    {
    	"frame":
    	{
    		"width": 300,
    		"height": 32
    	},
    	"supportedTypes":
    	[
    	],
    	"components":
    	[
    		{
    			"type": "staticImage",
    			"subtype": "other",
    			"imagePath": "images/logos/D_watermark_virb_dark.png",
    			"isLogo": 1,
    			"frame":
    			{
    				"x": 0,
    				"y": 0,
    				"width": 300,
    				"height": 32
    			}
    		}
    	]
    }
    Copy that file and give it a different name, like MyLogo.veg. Then grab a PNG file that you want to use and put it in C:\Program Files (x86)\Garmin\VIRB Edit\Widgets\images\logos. Let's say your logo file's name is mylogo.png. Now replace the line "imagePath": "images/logos/D_watermark_virb_dark.png" with "imagePath": "images/logos/mylogo.png" in MyLogo.veg. Use Notepad or some other text editor for this.

    Now restart VIRB Edit and you should be able to add your own logo, it should show up along with the Garmin ones. You might have to play around with the width and height a bit to get it right.

    I realize this is not something every user is comfortable with but it certainly is possible. We are hoping to make the creation of custom gauges easier in the future.

    Also be aware that any changes you are making to the Widgets directory will be overwritten when you install a new version of VIRB Edit. So make sure to back them up.

          My Logo

          When I try to change the "imagepath," it is telling me that I don't have permission. Working on MAC if that makes any differences.
          Thank you for the reply
