Different FPS and measuring velocity correcly - November 26, 2020 at 5:34

Hello everyone,

I am a rookie in the Tracker and trying to improve myself. I have a problematic video that some part of it was captured at 30fps some at 240 fps. Is there any chance to calculate correctly my data's velocity values considering these frame differences in one video? Can tracker teach it to the Tracker?

No, there's no way two different frame rates can be applied to a single video. But if you open the same video in two different tabs, you can set a different frame rate in each tab.  And set the start and end frames to include only that part of the video that applies. All these settings are in the Clip Settings--5th button on the toolbar.  Doug
