Is anyone aware of a video editing package for mac that will allow you to time and date stamp the EXIF data onto the video? I know iMovie does it and I have used it and it looks good, but it does not display seconds. I require it that way as it is surveillance footage and is at times used in court. Thanks guys

It's not an area that I know much about, but my understanding is that if video evidence is to be presented in court, it has to conform to strict standards and have verifiable provenance which must be maintained at every intermediate stage.

Others might be better able to explain what's needed. I just don't want you to be in the situation of doing a lot of work and then finding the end result inadmissible.
