written by Douglas Brown
The Autotracking with Tracker Tutorial was recorded by Doug Brown, the creator Tracker,  to lead users through the process of autotracking an object in a video clip. Autotracking collects data directly from the clip as the video is played.  It is faster than manual tracking and it is often more accurate than manual tracking.  This video will get you up and running using the autotrack feature in 15 minutes.

Additional Tracker resources including Tracker help and sample videos are available from the the Tracker home page at Cabrillo College." and from the Open Source Physics Collection.
