Where is this "Gauges" folder???? I don't have any folders there... There is 2 tutorials on Youtube of how to do this and when they show their After Effects window it's just there.....
If anyone knows how I can simply add telemetry data to my GoPro with a program that is a little less mind numbing to look at... that would be great
The telemetry data needs to be acquired outside of After Effects. That information can then be used to create a data-driven animation in After Effects.
After Effects User Guide > Work with Data-driven animation
As far as extracting the data goes, you need a 3rd party utility that does that. Here's the top result that came back when I searched for it:
TELEMETRY EXTRACTOR PREMIUM FOR GOPRO
Although, I have not used that product and cannot give it a recommendation. Perhaps other users will chime in with options that they like for extracting telemetry data.
Since the "GAUGES" folder in your screenshot is part of an After Effects template, I'd reach out to whomever you purchased that template from for what they recommend to use to extract that data.
