faq overview
  • Which file formats can RADiCAL process?

    We process all regular video file formats: *.MOV, *.MPEG, *.MP4 and *.AVI.

  • Can I use third party content, stock video or content downloaded from the internet?

    We have seen great results from third party content, stock footage and videos downloaded from YouTube, Vimeo and otherwise. However, with any third party footage, we don’t receive important information about the camera with which the video was recorded and the space the motion occurs in.  As a consequence, you should expect that our results will not accurately track the underlying motion in space.

    In addition, videos downloaded from the internet often come with low FPS rates, high levels of compression and low resolution.  All of these can adversely affect your results, especially when you attempt to track fast and complex motion.

    If you upload third party footage through RADiCAL’s Motion App, you accept those risks.

    To use footage from cameras that don’t run our RADiCAL’s Motion App, you can set up a custom profile.  A custom profile will allow you to upload the camera intrinsics data we require for best results.

  • Does compression matter?

    Certain video content, especially if downloaded from the internet, may have been highly compressed. Avoid strongly compressed content when scanning fast and complex motions.  Strong compression may negatively affect the ability of our system to detect details of the motion being captured, especially in fast and complex motion sequences.

    If you are using RADiCAL’s Motion App, you don’t have to worry about the right levels of compression.


  • What is the maximum size for a file I am uploading?

    File size limits are set by your subscription.  We are happy to grant higher limits to certain users with special needs.  Get in touch to find out.
