It is not burned in by the original recording devcie? That's just bad security to start with.

BenB, thanks for responding to both of my posts. The footage was shot using a Sony HDR-XR500 AKA consumer video camera. Date and time is not burned into the image when captured digitally. The only way to do it would be to run the video through a video capture device that basically just records what the video outputs. This solution really ***** so i'm looking for somthing more effective.

If this is security video for legal purposes, you have to be very careful what you do to it. You definitly need a plugin that will read time and date metadata directly. Check the FCP.co forum, there's a section of free templates and plugins that folks are making themselves. Very top quality stuff, too. Check there, or perhaps request someone make one.
