3-D Motion Analysis

What is 3-D Motion Analysis?

With one stationary camera and ProAnalyst 2023, you can extract 2-D motion data from any video, such as baseball velocity or the angular acceleration of a gear. Even so, there's important data you can't get from a single stationary camera... depth information. Any motion data you obtain is constrained to a plane.

That's where 3-D Analysis with ProAnalyst 2023 comes in. With a pair of video cameras, a 3-D Calibration, and the 3-D Analysis Toolkits in ProAnalyst, you can track 3-D trajectories, characterize 3-D oscillations, and even make 3-D stick models of subjects.

3-D Calibration

What is 3-D Calibration?

In 2-D video-based motion analysis, calibration is a crucial step that uses objects of known size to properly orient the camera and convert all motion data to usable real-world units.

In 3-D, the goal of calibration is the same, but the addition of depth and other degrees of freedom increases the complexity.

Once a time-consuming and mathematically involved process, 3-D Calibration has become the easiest part of 3-D motion analysis thanks to ProAnalyst 2023 and the Xcitex 3-D Calibration Fixtures.

3-D Calibration Fixtures

3-D Calibration fixtures are simply objects with known dimensions; these dimensions are stored in a associated "fixture file" to be used in calibration. Images of a calibration fixture and the fixture's associated fixture file provide ProAnalyst 2023 with enough information to calibrate a scene.

The 3-D Calibration Fixtures made by Xcitex are designed specifically for use with the 3-D Stereo Calibration Toolkit in ProAnalyst 2023, which makes calibrating measurement volumes easy. There are a variety of fixtures to choose from, each made for different applications: lightweight 1" and 2" fixtures; stronger 6" plastic fixtures; 12" and 24" aluminum fixtures; or heavy-duty 1-meter and 2-meter aluminum fixtures.

Toolkits for every task

The various analysis tools in ProAnalyst 2023 are organized into Toolkits designed to help you through each step in the motion analysis process.

Feature Tracking Toolkits

Use these toolkits to track the features you care about, whether they're rotating, appearing and disappearing, or even moving in 3-D.
