Photron Fastcam Analysis (PFA) has been designed to be used as a powerful optional motion analysis accessory for our Photron FASTCAM Viewer (PFV), the camera control software for FASTCAM cameras.
With PFA, it is possible to analyze motion within an image sequence directly imported from PFV in order to measure displacement, velocity and acceleration, which can then be easily exported to a comma separated values (csv) file in Excel™ or similar. The resultant analysis graphs can be viewed synchronized with the recorded high speed images.
Our vision for PFA is that the novice user can easily process an image sequence quickly and simply, without the needing to perform complex importation procedures or define intricate analysis parameters. By successfully implementing these ideas PFA is perfect for those new to motion analysis or those requiring fast results.
