Not sure which forum section to post but here is a start.
I take video of my son throwing the Javelin to analyse later in helping with coaching. I can get the video to the PC but I have a couple of questions regarding quality. I am using a Sony Digital8 camera connected to the PC via firewire. I know there are specific sports video software but it is a bit out of my price league.
The point of throw is very quick and I was wondering whether converting to 50fps would help the clarity as it is very fuzzy which I would guess is due to interlacing?
When at the track I wanted to be able to playback on a laptop the throw he has just done from the camera (as to render it would take time). I have found River Past PlayDV to play back from the camera but wondered whether there was a freeware alternative?
Is there any PC playback software that allows two video to be played side by side i.e. to compare the current throw with a best throw?
Any help appreciated.
