This page demonstrates how Video Surgeon can be used to analyze a horseback rider's jump in a competitive contest. The videos below are a great example of just a few of the things Video Surgeon can do. 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 both the horse and rider in this jump.
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 examines the technique of both horse and rider in this equestrian jumping event.
Video 4: This fourth video is slowed even further, to 6.25%. No zoom is applied. Again the value of slow motion for analysis of and identification of the technique used in this jump.
Pictures from video: Video Surgeon allows you to print to paper or to file, one or a series of images. In the example below we have the same image shown but at different magnification levels. Click on the thumbnail to see the full sized image.
