Enjoy this side-by-side Coach’s Eye analysis of Desiree Snelleman and Pace versus Daisy Peel and Solar, the 1st and 2nd place dogs in the 26″ Challengers Round at the 2013 AKC National Agility Championship. Course design, running contacts, handling choices and ground speed all played a part in this amazing match-up.

  • Awesome analysis – but how did you do it? Do you have a beta of Coaches Eye that supports side by side? Your own wizardry? I see updates from TechSmith that side-by-side is coming but don’t see the update yet. Thanks.

    • Hey Dave!
      Ohhh! Another job title for me: wizard! Yes, this would fall under my own wizardry 🙂

      The Coach’s Eye folks told me that side-by-side is expected by the end of the month. In the meantime, I used some advanced features in Corel VideoStudio to do the side by side. In the Pace v Solar video, there’s a clear view of the clock, so I used that to manually synchronize the video. In the Karma v Rush, I chose the frame where I thought the dog tripped the start line timer. I then used the Coach’s Eye to analyze the side-by-side video. I’ll be interested to see how the Coach’s Eye implements side-by-side, but now that I’ve figured it out once, I’m able to do it pretty easily using the Corel VideoStudio.


      • Got it. So you analyzed after putting them side-by-side. Have done side-by-side in AVS Editor, and that should work as well. Thanks!

  • Excellent analysis. Lots of fun to watch. But I thought DP did a blind and not a front cross on the last 180 at the end. She just did it on the takeoff side of the jump instead of on the landing side of the jump before the chute.

  • Very nice video analysis as always.

    Your jump tutorials are excellent.
    I would love to see more content on contact work.
