Webcam / Tuner Card Capture
How to use Webcam or tuner Card Capture
The Capture Video process will copy the video from your camcorder to your computer. Once this is done, you will no longer need the camcorder, as a copy of the captured video is permanently stored on the computer. For the convenience of most users, SportsCAD offers four different ways to capture videos and import them into the program for analysis: These include the standard Start Capture/Stop Capture, Automatic Video Capture, One Click, and Beep Capture.
The default settings for capture are “Standard Start-Stop Capture” and “Detailed Naming”. These settings are the most common and will work well in most teaching environments.
1) Set the Student name (item 2) and Video name (item 3).
2) Start up your camera.
3) When your student is about to begin their motion, click on the "Start Capture" button (item 8... the button will then show the caption "Stop Capture"). Click on the "Stop Capture" button (same button as "Start Capture") when your student finishes his motion.
4) You will now notice that the "live video" window has been replaced with the video that you just captured. Scroll the newly captured video to the beginning of the motion (we want to remove any excess motion that you may have captured) and click the "Trim Front" (item 9) button.
5) Scroll the video to the end of the motion and click the "Trim End" (item 10) button. This "trimming" process will make sure that you only save the motion itself and no extra frames. Click on the "Save Capture" button (item 11) to save the video to your computer. You can repeat these steps for as many captures as you need.
