Issue trying to modify bag contents with python

So I've found out that I need a frame_id in my imu message to be able to visualize it in RViz, so I've been trying to add a frame_id to the bags I have. When I try reading through the messages in the bag I keep getting an error saying "AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'secs'"

Here is the code and the output from the terminal:

I think I've managed to establish that the issue is to do with the itemiterator (or whatever it's called) t, but I haven't had any luck trying to cast it to the secs type.

Any ideas?

If I remember correctly, the bag.write() takes the topic name, the message and the timestamp as arguments, but you're passing the frame id as the third argument.

Instead of:

output.write(topic, msg, msg.header.frame_id)

Try using the timestamp from the original bag file:

output.write(topic, msg, t)

P.S. - Your IMU messages should probably all have the same frame ID

Awesome that worked, thanks! I couldn't find anywhere that actually said what that function was expecting. RViz is now displaying my acceleration vector too.
