Hi Tim,



I have put together a digital version of that with the help of our computer
guy.

First, easiest thing for me would be to send you a copy of our instruction
set

that is provided technicians, TA's and students.

Hello everyone,



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!
