Viewing a video frame
When using video in the analysis software, by far the most common operation is to view a particular video frame that is associated with a particular data sample. For example you might have a graph of speed for 2 laps, and you want to see the video for this data. To do this you open a “video camera view” and click on the graph.

Playing the video in real time along side the data
As well as viewing a particular frame of video, it is sometimes convenient to simply “play” the data and video along side each other. Real time playback is handled using the “real time playback” control, whilst having a “video camera view open”, as well as any combination of other data objects (track maps, graphs, value table etc). More information is available here.
Comparing race lines using video
A typical use of video along side the race data is to examine racing lines around the track. There are 2 simple ways that this can be handled:
- Using a graph (or quick graph) of speed versus distance for up to 5 laps, then click on the graph with a “video camera view” open and scroll back and forth over the corners.
- You can also do something very similar by using the special “play at constant speed” mode from within the playback control. More information about this is available here.
