Observing Motion

1. Specifying a working zone for analysis

With the help of the selection cursors and set a small working zone around the motion to observe.

Once the working zone is short enough, Kinovea will switch to Analysis mode. In this mode the frames composing the video are extracted to memory for faster access.

Automatic switch to analysis mode

The working zone properties corresponding to the switch to Analysis mode can be set in the Preferences dialog, at Play/Analysis Screen tab.
The default duration is 12 seconds.

2. Breaking down motion

Analysis mode makes the video update in real time when using the navigation cursor. This gives you total control on the timeline.

You can also use the mouse wheel to move a few frames forward or backward.
