Running Video Instructions

Here are some helpful hints for taking your running video:

What we DO need: What we DO NOT need:
  • Still or stationary video angle
  • Side or lateral view of the runner
  • View that includes some space above head and below feet
  • Relatively flat terrain
  • Enough video to view at least one landing for each foot (<5 seconds)
  • Running performed at a comfortable pace
  • Footwear option that you would typically wear running
  • File sizes that are under 30 MB (under 10 MB would be preferred)
  • Video angle that follows the runner
  • Front or back views of the runner
  • View that cuts off head or focuses on feet
  • Uphill or downhill angled terrain that would change your running form
  • Too little video to view one landing per foot
  • Running at a too fast or slow speed
  • Video taken barefoot if you do not typically run without shoes
