Tracker

Tracker

Tracker is an open source video analysis and modeling tool built on the Open Source Physics (OSP) Java framework. It is designed to be used in introductory college physics labs and lectures.

Tracker can analyse digital video files, animated GIF files, and image sequences consisting of one or more digital images. Video filters allow users to modify the video image for special effects or to improve the quality of data obtained from tracks. Tracker's filters fall into four categories: image enhancement, special effects, noise reduction, and image transformations.
