    Platform Diving

    This page demonstrates how Video Surgeon can be in the competitive sport of Platform Diving to slow down the motion and zoom-in to analyze the mechanics of a dive. The videos below are a great example of just a few of the things Video Surgeon can do for you. The example clip below was taken from a YouTube video we downloaded using Video Surgeon. Four different version of this clip are supplied below. Below the videos are a series of pictures or images from the video.






    Video 1: This is the original clip from the YT video at normal speed and with no zoom.


    Video 2: This second video is the same as above except that it is at 25% of the original speed. It is easy to see how this slow motion helps you better see and analyze the diver's form in the video.


    Video 3: This third video is the same as above except we have applied a 2-fold zoom. So both slow motion and zooming are applied to make it easier to closely examine the form of this dive.


    Video 4: This fourth video is slowed even further, to 6.25%. No zoom is applied. Again the value of slow motion for analyzing the form of the dive throughout all stages of the dive from start to the entry point into the water is readily apparent.

    Pictures from video: Video Surgeon allows you to print to paper or to file, one or a series of images. In the example below there are six images which show the progression of the diver as she initiates the dive off the platform until the time she enters the water.
