If you’re a physicist who’s constantly working with videos and images and you need to determine variables, you will need tools to help you do that in a simple way and save you time. This is one of those tools and it’s a Java-based app that will help you analyze video clips and images to determine different variables. It’s specifically designed for physics experiments to allow you to estimate acceleration and velocity.
You will need to identify the frames and specify the position of the object you’re tracking so that the program can do its job. For the results to be accurate, make sure you calibrate the scale of the video by being specific about the length of the object. This means that you’ll need to know the dimensions of the objects.
Once the analysis is done, the results will be displayed on the plot view. This tool includes features such as Line Profile, to measure brightness, Point Mass, to describe movement, and Data Tool, which provides additional statistics and measurements.
Overall, this image analyzer is complete and effective, not to mention simple and easy to use.
