»No short videos of analysing anymore.
Why? My opinion is, that these short videos aren't good enough to show the hole swimming style.
I prefer longer videos like "USA Swimming" or "Total Immersion" with multiple camera-perspectives and explanations so that you can really work out the perfekt style watching or even using the "drills" they propose.
You can still find these short videos here: www.swim.ee | www.swimming.org | Youtube 1 | Youtube 2
»Dr. Rein download problems fixed.
» Total Immersion Video found on Youtube.
»My explicit recommendation how to make underwater videos:
I recorded this video of myself with a Fuji Finepix F40fd and its Fujifilm Underwater Case WP-FXF40 and a Strechcord. (You have other underwater cameras and examples of underwater videos ?! Let me know it: [email protected])
Download this video recorded from the camera. Check the (!high-amazing!) quality - compared to the bad youtube format. (8,8 MB)
Analysing videos requiers a programm to stop at any desired moment to get a closer look or a slowmotion function. Virtual Dub has both of these advantages.
1. Download Virtual Dub
2. Unzip "virtualdub.zip"
3. Run "VirtualDub.exe"
4. Load your video (Menu: "File" - "open video file")
5. Virtual Dub is splitting the video into "keyframes". For analysing every picture or "keyframe" use the "arrow keys" (Pfeiltasten) on your keyboard. (Hold or press once)
6. Doesn't work? --> [email protected]
7. Example of a video that has been slowed down with virtual dub: (1/3 speed - can be slowed down more and as said: can be stopped at any desired frame)
