The V1 Golf Camera Screen
Get familiar with the camera screen and we'll describe the tools below.
Using the Guide for Down the Line and Face-on
Once you open the Camera there are several options to help you make the most of your videos. Many swing videos are either captured "Down the Line" or "Face-on". For best results, V1 Golf app provides guides for both of these views that will encourage you to fill your frame with the golf swing. It will be easier to review and analyze this way.
Countdown Timer. Click on the timer icon at the top to select Off, 5s, 10s, or 15s timer to give yourself time to get from the device to set up and take your swing. When you click record the countdown will begin and you will hear a beep each second of the countdown. When the countdown reaches zero, it will begin recording.
Flash. Use the lightning bolt icon to set flash to on, off or auto for your video recording.
Trimming your Video
Often you'll record more than just your swing, for example walking to and from the camera before and after your swing. If that's the case you'll want to trip your video to save space on your device and make reviewing the video easier. Here's how to do it.
Once you've captured and saved your video it will appear in the Videos section of the app under the My Swings tab. Click on the thumbnail for that video and you see the Video Details page. From this page, click on the Analyze button.
When you get to the analyze page, you'll see a Trim option.
From here, it is very simple to Trim the video to include just the swing, or part of the set up and swing that you want to save. Just slide the yellow slider on either side to trim the front and back of the video to your liking.
