Hello Tracker users!
I use the version 4.91 and I tried to analyze a motion recorded in an 120 fps video (it was somehow quick and not well recorded in 30 fps) The graphs related to position (x-t and y-t) are very good and if I divide the t-axis by 4, (for example I copy the data from the table to an excel file and make a graph with the calibrated t-axis) become "real" that is the graphs correspond absolutely to the real phenomenon. I cannot do the same with the velocity and acceleration. Could someone give me a solution?

Just open the Clip Settings (5th button from the left on the toolbar) and set the Frame rate to 120. All times and time-dependent data will then be correct.  Doug
