Bedford Interactive have recently launched some new products on their website and have announced a software toolkit for anyone who uses video of dance in the studio, classroom or other environments. The forthcoming application is called FORMotion
and will be adaptable to many different uses including archiving of dance video and all kinds of motion studies, through it's dual screen display system. The great leap forward is the ability to use any of the tools they have developed on any footage the user wishes to use. This could be used to compare footage of the same dance from different camera angles or different dances or anything you want really!
The company are currently looking for dance teachers and choreographers who are willing to let them use their video in development work, in exchange for free pre-release copies of the software, with their video already loaded into it.
If you would like a better idea of what this software does, you can send off for a free demo of a program called Voctools
(a prototype version of FORMotion).
