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.
