Analyzing motion does not need to be expensive or hard to use. MaxTRAQ 2D is a flexible solution for your budget. MaxTRAQ 2D does not discriminate which camera you choose to use (standard camcorder to high speed). All you need are AVI or MPEG files. MaxTRAQ 2D can run as a stand-alone application, automation server, or as an ActiveX component that can easily integrated into other analysis packages such as our MaxMATE analysis module.
MaxTRAQ 2D exists in different editions so that you only pay for what you need. The Educational Edition is sold with books such as "The Biomechanical Basis of Human Movement" by Joe Hamill. The following table shows the differences between the different editions:
Analysis/Tool MaxTRAQ includes tools such as angles, distances, notes, stick figures, traces and scales. Analysis includes distances, angles, center of mass, etc. For more in depth analysis tools we suggest our MaxMate (MM) or Visual 3D software.
Manual Digitizing & Auto Tracking
MaxTRAQ is a manual or automatic digitizer that can be used to extract kinematic properties out of standard AVI files. The manual digitizing feature is used in applications where markers are not an option or not required. With both manual and auto tracking you can go through frame by frame to look at angles, distance between points, etc. The automatic “advance to the next frame” feature makes the task of manually tracking each marker much easier or just have MaxTRAQ do the work for you with the auto tracking feature available with M2.
A Video Recorder has been added to allow you to record videos from Direct Show compatible cameras such as camcorders and webcams. To access the recorder, use File-New-Recording.
A simple scripting feature has been added. This allows you to control MaxTRAQ by putting commands in a text file. A Repeat command has been included to allow batch recording/processing. All the script commands are also available as special hyperlink commands (see Widgets). For more information on scripting, see our Tutorials.
New feature called Widgets has been added to MaxTRAQ. These widgets are mini applications that are attached to the MaxTRAQ window. They can be displayed or hidden and can be attached to any of the 4 sides of the window. Current Widget Applications include:
