Hi gents and ladies,
Please be patient, I am indeed a newbie.
I am looking to achieve a very specific result and I am hoping you can point me in the right direction. Is there any sort of software/equipment that allows the use of a real-time on-screen stopwatch that also allows the footage to be fast-forwarded and rewound frame-by-frame?
To give an idea of what I am looking for, I work in horse racing analysis and I am looking to record accurate split times for horses in races. What makes this difficult is that the horses are running at 60kmph and it is difficult to judge when the horses are passing the relevant marker posts with any degree of accuracy.
The above software/equipment would allow me to fast-forward/rewind the footage until the relevant horse is exactly at the relevant post, allowing me to note the exact time on the on-screen stopwatch, then fast-forward to the next post and do the same, resulting in a very accurate sectional time.
If any of you could confirm whether or not such a thing exists, it would be very much appreciated.
Many thanks in advance.
