Hello everyone,
=20
I'm trying to spec equipment for an air table lab for one of our other
campuses. We've been using VCR's with jog/shuttle controls, taping the
collisions and then stepping though the event and tracing it on acetate
taped to a 25" monitor screen. Looks like you can't even get a VCR w/
Jog shuttle any more so it's time to move on. Does anyone use digital
cameras/camcorders for taping air table experiments and analyze them
using the Video features in Logger Pro or Video Point? Are you able to
get decent results, including individual puck rotation? Also, does
anyone use DVD recorders for the same purpose? Any information about
time bases we should know? Thanks for any guidance!
