What computer program do you use to draw lines on a video of your swing (Mac)?

Recommended Posts

I recorded my swing and am making some changes and was wondering what program you use to put a line on your swing and still move the video.

Thanks Jake

Analyzr

http://analyzrgolf.com/

Simple to use and does everything you need. The non-pro version doesn't have any bells and whistles but it gives you all the tools you need to learn whats going on in your swing.

Edit* you'll be able to draw lines, circles, measure angles, frame by frame, side by side comparisons..etc...

Have you checked out evolvr yet?  That is what I have been doing for lessons.  You will get videos sent back to you with all those little lines drawn all over it! Fun stuff, and it is only $40 a month or so.  If you want to draw the lines yourself that is fun, and you could still do that, it is just better to have an expert pro who knows where to draw them.

I would love to but its kinda out of my budget this month. got married in October and my wifes in school. I got home late night and tried standing with more knee bend and closer to the ball and it seemed to let me turn through much easier. I'm going to the range tomorrow probably ill throw up another video once I get comfortable in the new position.

Ah ok, well if you can do it one day it is pretty great, and a lot less than regular lessons.  Congrats by the way as well.  Keep checking out those threads in the meantime.

Umm. what he ... and he ... and he ... and he said.  If you're getting lessons from the guys at Evolvr, then that's what they use.  (Pretty sure the program was written by some computer dork who also knows a teeny little bit about golf )

And there is a student version that you can buy for yourself for $50 or something like that.  I find it useful because after receiving a lesson, rather than going out, trying it once, and sending in another video to let them see if I'm doing it right (when, more than likely I'm not yet) I can check a few of those things by myself.

Last year when working on improving my swing, I would just play video, pause video at key points in backswing and downswing, and then take screen shots.   Then I'd paste screenshots into MS Paint where I can draw my lines and analyze.  To take it even further, you can create a sequence of several consecutive pics in swing with the same line drawn in each, then paste the consecutive string of pics into MS Word to review.   Yeah, it takes more time and not as nice as software that does it all for you, but it's free.

I have leadbetter and v1 home. But I use a program called kinovea now which is free and doesn't to need to put my pc I to basic video mode to run like the others. Its not golf specific but it does all that the other two do. Though i'd get analyzr if i had a mac or if it was available on windows or linux.

+1 for Kinovea. Free and has quite a bit of stuff.

IIRC it only works on PC and it is nowhere near as simple and efficient to use as Analyzr but if you don't have a Mac I'd recommend Kinovea.

Free is a pretty attractive price point!

    •  I generlly play at two clubs Bradley Park - Nice 18 hole course, well kept mature parkland i can play for £19 on a weekend or 10 holes for a tenner. Great driving range and practice area. Willow Valley - 3 courses. 9 hole, 18 hole intermediate and the championship course (home of the Yorkshire PGA champs). 9 holer is a tenner on the weekends and the inter course is £20. You just cant grumble at the value for monet you get.
    • I prefer sand that is medium I guess. I have trouble with real soft, fine sand because I am not as consistent with how far I hit behind the ball. I think soft sand is less forgiving. I work to play a sand shot similar to a pitch shot, but with lower hands as my Evolvr instructors and Erik have taught me.  My league course has medium sand on the course, but very soft sand in the practice area. My home course has medium sand but no practice area. It's odd, but I never seem to get into the bunkers at my home course. I think I just jinxed myself! 
    • Welcome @afmilboy02! Happy thanksgiving. I tweaked some of your post to make it fit our guidelines for member swings. The one thing we need you to do now is embed the videos- not attach them. In the “How To” dropdown, you’ll see an option for embedding videos.   Under the “Info” dropdown there is an option for Instructional Content.  Great stuff there as well as tips for how to have a good swing thread, including video tips.  Good luck!!!
    •   I've been Playing Golf for: years but just getting back into golf
      My current handicap index or average score is: 90s
      My typical ball flight is: None
      The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is:  Haven't played in a season or so due to work, but getting back into it and have had nothing but issues.  Previously, I was a solid ball striker (few miss hits per round) that shot in the high 80's to low 90's a few lip outs, bad chips, and/or bad drives away from being in low 80's.  With that said, I dont know where that swing went, I literally am struggling to make solid contact with the ball with numerous issues in my swing... hip slide, over back swing, out/in path, pushes left, and fat/thin hits to name a few.  Here are a few vids (removed by moderator as they were attached not embedded)... tips, drills, and advice are welcome.   Thank you!
