Video Analysis of Path of Action

Here is an analysis of the path of action of me doing a jump after a running start. I had thought the camera was shot 30 frames per second but it looks as if the frames were shot uneven, in neighboring pairs. Here is the reference video for the analysis. Unfortunately the tracker software did not allow me to record a Quicktime of the image with the tracks in motion. I believe it is partially due to the age of my Mac computer, and the unwillingness to accept Tracker as a compatible software.

  1. You're right, the track is a little uneven and I'm not sure if it's a problem with your camera skipping frames or a problem with Tracker importing the video. Given this issue, the track and the graphs don't look so bad. I do have to dock you two points because you were not able to upload the tracked Quicktime movie; now you have a good excuse to get a new computer :-)
