Different colors for velocity and acceleration vectors

Dear Doug and Tracker users,

Is it possible to have different colors for velocity and acceleration vectors? This is very useful especially when we study motion in a straight line.

Thank You.

I'll try to add the ability to set the vector colors independently in the next release, Georgios :-)  Doug

Version 4.83 does include the ability to set the velocity and acceleration colors independently :-) You can download it on the Tracker web site but not yet on ComPADRE (a couple more changes will be included in the ComPADRE release). Doug
