Measure your vertical jump using video analysis
Use video analysis to measure your vertical jump.
You can load any HTML5 compatible video of a jump and measure the height of the jump following these steps:
1. Load Video
Load a video of the vertical jump you want to measure, preferably of good quality and high frame-rate. If you don't have a video at hand you can click the button "Load example" below the video. If the video is not HTML5 compatible it will not play. However you can convert video to HTML5 on www.EasyHTML5Video.com
2. Select Take-off
Press play and forward to the frame right before the jump where your feet still touch the ground. You can use the slider as well as forward /rewind buttons to find the correct point in time.
3. Select Landing
Forward to the first frame where your feet touch the ground again.
Now you just have to press the button "Calculate" to get your results.
5. Analyze your Jump
Now a graph will show you the plane of flight of your jump.
When you click on any point of the blue line the video jumps to the corresponding point of time, you can use this to check if you marked take-off and landing correctly.
You can also see the height you need to touch the rim (green) or to dunk a basketball (orange).
You can put in your own standing reach and rim height in the chart options on the right.
