Alternative video analysis software for tracker

In summary: I will definitely try this.In summary, https://tracker.physlets.org/ is great, free, and open source.I especially like that one can teach it to recognize a feature to track automatically.It can then be analyzed in the software.

Hello, I wanted to know some software used for plotting the positions of a point mass. I did an oscillation experiment and I used the tracker app, but I cannot get it to track my point mass
Please mention if any alternative software exists for carrying out my experiment.
Thanks in advance

What specifically is your problem with using it?

I could not get the autotracking feature to work. I had done all the prep required. The object I want to track and the background are very much distinguished in terms of colour. Luminosity is not an issue. I guess I am not able to get it right with the settings such as tethering and evolution.

I am trying to autotrack the pink spot on the top oscillating bar, but It's not able to recognize the next frame

There is a company that makes equipment to visually track zebrafish (and other things) in 3D.
Thank you. Yes, I know about this. But our school can not be able to provide this now. So now I am performing touch evoke assay which is simple and can be formed and analyzed manually with tracker or ImageJ software. for that, I need someone's help tracking through any of this software.

There may be some user groups for ImageJ. Lots of researchers use it and might be sharing their methods.

Can you suggest to me how can I find it?

I would guess at an ImageJ website or a physiologist group of researchers that use that program.
If you go to meetings where these people hang out go talk with them.
Maybe google ImageJ user group.
