Learn with Essentials

ProAnalyst is a powerful video motion analysis software package that can turn your video camera into a non-contact measurement device. Now, for the first time, the fundamentals of this technology are available for free with ProAnalyst Essentials.

Dive deep into the motion analysis process, from Image Processing, to Feature Tracking, to Data Reduction and export. Essentials is the perfect introduction to the world of video-based motion analysis.

Educate with Essentials

ProAnalyst Essentials provides science educators with a powerful teaching aide to help bridge the gap between theory and application in their classrooms.

Start by recording motion with any camera, even a smartphone camera. Next, track features in the video, and compute quantities like acceleration and angular velocity. Finally, graph those quantities against time for a intuitive visual to pair with your lessons.

Collaborate with Essentials

ProAnalyst Essentials the ideal link between ProAnalyst users within organizations. Essentials expertly handles the same analysis files as ProAnalyst 2023, allowing users to share analysis results without large file transfers.

Just share the associated analysis files, and any Essentials user can open and edit the files, make presentations, export data to Excel or MATLAB for model simulation, and collaborate on research.

Grow with Essentials

Thinking about purchasing the powerful ProAnalyst 2023? Before you buy, download and try ProAnalyst Essentials, built using 2023's tracking algorithms, framework, and user interface.

When you're ready to take advantage of powerful, specialized toolkits, robust tracking algorithms, and a sophisticated graphing engine, ProAnalyst 2023 will be there waiting for you.

Essentials in a Nutshell

ProAnalyst Essentials contains all the tools you need to get started with video-based motion analysis. Explore the basics of the motion analysis workflow with standard analysis Toolkits from ProAnalyst 2023. If you have any questions about ProAnalyst Essentials, please contact us.


Standard Feature Tracking

Automatically track one feature by defining and setting a feature template, or manually track up to three features by placing track points. Allows for limited search parameter adjustment and importing/exporting of tracking data.

Standard Calibration

For videos where the optical axis of the camera is perpendicular to the plane of motion. Place reference points on a known object to set the scale of your scene. Create multiple calibrations for different planes of motion.

Look-Up Table (LUT)

Apply a LUT to your image; make standard brightness, contrast, gamma, and exponential/log adjustments, invert the image, or convert it to grayscale. All adjustments can be made to individual color channels.

Standard Data Graphing

Create a 2-axis graph of one motion data quantity against time. Choose from quantities created in other toolkits, like feature velocity, particle count, contour area, angle, etc. Save your graph playback as a bitmap sequence.
