I was going to post this on the TraqMate forum site but when I click to register I get message "Creating a new account is currently not possible".  Maybe someone here can answer this ...

 

Is it possible / how do I get 2 video windows displayed (one for each of the 2 sessions I have open)??

 

I'm able to open a first session and open the corresponding video file.  I can select and "play" a lap from the session and the corresponding section of the video plays.  All good so far.  Then I open a second session and everything looks good except I still have only 1 video window.  I'm expecting 1 video window for each session so that when I "play" the data I can see the video for both sessions at the same time.  Is this just wishful thinking on my part or can someone explain the steps to make this happen?

 

Thanks,

Tom

Tom,

I just replied to your support email as well but will answer it here as well. 

 

TraqStudio only supports 1 video at a time for comparison. 

 

Race Render allows you to you created picture and picture videos. 

 

Hope that clears it up.

Thanks for the quick reply.
There are a lot of great things about the TraqStudio software but this limitation is very disappointing. Seeing both videos at the same time has been highly informative during segment analysis of different laps or cars. Please consider adding this feature soon for TraqStudio.

Extremely disappointing. One video at a time is not really "comparison", is it? ;)

I would add that it isn't just between two different sessions. The same feature is equally valuable when comparing laps by the same car in the same session. This is high on my priority list and it didn't occur to me that a system which provides synchronized video would limit that to a single lap at a time. As with the data itself, looking at them side-by-side vastly improves (my) efficiency and effectiveness. A decent computer today can handle multiple videos at once, and if necessary there should be an option to reduce resolution to something easier to work with but still adequate for analysis.

We may actually resort to that but it will be much less convenient/efficient.

Not that its any consolation, but theirs is not the only system with this deficiency. 

 

Racepak added synchronized video several years ago, and also does not provide side-by-side video. 

 

I've been looking for some aftermarket program that would take video+data from two sources, and synchronize them by GPS position, instead of time.  it would seem like a trivial alternate mode to add to something like RaceRender or TrackVision. 

 

I'd still rather it were integrated into the data analysis software.  But, I think pigs will fly, and the beatles (and Eagles) will get back together first (at least with Racepak).

It seems there are a lot of drivers using traqmate.
Are there any of you out there that wish the traqmate analysis software supported side-by-side video? Or if not, why not?

Hmmm. So is anyone using the one video that is supported for segment analysis??
If not, why not?

^^^ No response.

Is anyone using TraqMate to do ANY data analysis??

Or are you just using it to generate videos to share?

Racekeeper is the only system I am aware of that allows video comparison side by side. We used it in World Challenge as it was mandatory.

I use traqmate for data I have never synced the vid as I have enough problems compairing the data when it does its malfunction which seems to be about 50% of the time. Not sure if the issues have been fixed or if that was just another we are working on it to silence the critics for little while. I also have an aim solo I run to do data analysis with friends who run aim. I am however not as proficient running the aim software as I am with traqmate due to the amount of time I have spent with each program

Thanks Todd. I'll take a look.
Race Technologies software supports data/segment analysis with side-by-side video but it is so flawed/frustrating in other ways we decided to try other products.
