Subject: Movie Files

Does anyone have experience with creating movie files on a PC. They can be
either .AVI or QuickTime .MOV files. I can utilize just about any popular
programming language. (C, C++, Visual Basic, Fortran and VEE of course)
I know this is a stretch for this list server but anything is worth a shot.
The Application :
We develop soil testing equipment. We have a prototype of a probe that
can be pushed into the ground and sends up to the surface a video image of
the soil next to the probe. Our need is to overlay on video image, a text
string that identifies the depth of the probe. Very similar to the way
many video cameras will time stamp.
Analog data is recorded real time with VEE from a number of other sensors
on the probe and stored in a file with a corresponding depth and timestamp.
I can utilize this file to postprocess the video data.
We have software that will overlay two video images, I need to be able to
create a movie file that contains the depth string as a function of time.
Many thanks to anyone who has any suggestions.
