How to use the software

The most common way to use the software is by filming on the court/field/range. Using a tripod and a camera, you record the motions that you want to analyze. You then take the camera inside, plug it into the computer, and copy the motions from the camera into the computer. SportsCAD makes this very easy to do while using a dv camcorder, camera, phone or tablet. Once this is done, you have a very organized video library that you can recall from at any time.
