Mice Profiler tracks multiple mice from a top view video.
The version of MiceProfiler provided by Nature methods does not contain the automatic updater. If you downloaded MiceProfiler from Nature methods, you are running an old version. Please uninstall and reinstall the plugin to get the last version.
For test purposes, you can use this video file.
Tutorial about this software:
Here is another example showing the supervised tracking:
With the corresponding results extracted from the plugins VideoLabelMaker and Label Analyser (for the temporal graph)
As a number of people had trouble loading video sequences because of the codec and 32 bit stuff. I had release by the 15 May 2012 a new version with a completely new video file loader called xuggler, that is faster, and able to work in 64bits. Please look at the xuggler website for supported video codecs (basically FFMPEG). If you have trouble with your video please use the following softwares to convert it:
- http://www.freemake.com/free_video_converter/ (use custom install to avoid toolbars and advert-stuff)
- SUPER (but I highly don’t recommend it since it installs a lot of adware that you can’t avoid on you computer.)
- The software you like (send me the link I will add it to this list !)
Last note about video: do not use HD video. The software has originaly been designed for 384×288 video. Still it’s ok to use 640×480 videos but you should not exceed this. Else the loader will be slow and the tracking will be impacted. The day I find a proper frame-per-frame loader in java I will update to support HD file, even 4K if needed ! (If anybody knows a proper lib, contact me !)
