Capture-High Def Camera Import
Program Setup - Capture - High Def Camera Import
To have SportsCAD default to High Def Camera Import as your capture method, simply open SportsCAD, go to Program Setup, Click the Capture button at the top, then select High Def Camera Import as your Capture Method (see picture above).
To get started, you must do a one time setup of the folder where your videos are stored. This will usually be the folder on your camera that stores videos, the folder on the memory card for your camera that holds videos, or a folder you created on your pc to drag and drop videos into.
1) Plug in your camera and turn it on (at this point most cameras link with the pc and add a drive letter for access to your videos).
2) Click the Set Camera Default Folder button (item 3).
3) Browse to find the folder that stores your videos and click the OK button.
4) The folder path will now be displayed in the Video Path window (item 1).
Reverse Fields - Check this setting if your captured videos appear to jump forward and backward during frame by frame analysis (unchecked by default).
Split Fields - Check or uncheck this setting if a) as you advance the video frame by frame, it takes 2 clicks to advance 1 frame (the video should advance one frame for every click of the mouse) or b) if you see 2 objects (2 bats, 2 clubs etc) while doing frame by frame analysis (unchecked by default).
Recompress - If your camera creates "avi" files, you may not need to recompress the videos for use in SportsCAD. Uncheck this box if you want to use the avi files without recompressing them (checked by default).
