This talk describes how we use the Tracker video analysis and modeling program to analyze still images.  We have used a group of still 30-second images taken 9 ½ minutes apart (for 10 minutes between images).  To analyze these images we use Tracker.  We use the feature in Tracker which automatically creates a "movie" of still images and then allows the user to define the time interval between images.  In this talk we show our preliminary results and propose possible future improvements.
