Does Tracker Use (or require) Units?

Greetings, and thanks so such for a wonderful tool!

I am guessing that, outside of degrees or radians, Tracker is pretty much unitless. Is this correct?

Thank you for considering my question.

That's almost right. Tracker is unitless except for degrees/radians and also time is assumed to be in seconds. But mass and distance units are up to the user...  Doug

Hello Doug,

Is it possible to measure pixels in TRACKER?
