Step 1: Configuration and rider details
After starting Velogic Studio (and optionally signing in, if you haven’t signed in recently), you'll see Step 1:
Step 1 is for you to get all setup prior to the fit session commencing.lThe client name, email and bike brand/model are used on the report at the end of the fit process.
On the right-hand side you can set details of your client:
- Name, email, bike brand/model: these are included on the report
- Fitter: you can set up a list of different people who conduct fits in your studio (click Settings button to set these up). Pick one from the drop-down to include it on the report.
- Position for fit - choose Road, Tri or Mtb. Your choice here will dictate the position of measurement points, and which body metrics are displayed for the rider.
The "Reopen Session" button allows you find and open a previously-saved session.
The left-hand side of step 1 is all about configuring the sources of fit data. This might be your main Kinect camera, but you can also specify webcams, ANT dongles/devices, and more.
Scroll down to make sure that your input sources are configured correctly, then click “Next” to go to the capture screen.
Step 2: Capturing data
Step 2 is where most of the action happens during a fit.
The Visuals list on the left-hand side shows you a thumbnail view of video and images that are being captured. Click on one to focus on it, by setting it to the bigger Liveview section.
The Liveview section shows the Visual that you're currently focusing on. You can switch to another visual by clicking on a different entry in the Visuals section.
When you want to evaluate the current position of your rider, make sure the rider is pedaling at a realistic cadence and click the "Start capture" button. You'll see a short countdown, and then the system will capture data for a 15-second period.
During the capture period, the system will start displaying data while it continues capturing. You can enter notes in the textbox during the capture (or before or afterwards) to help remember why you captured this position.
When the capture period has finished, you can save or discard the capture. If you save the capture, it will be added to the Fit Log section at the bottom.
The "Measure bike" button takes you through a process using the measurement wand to capture the location in space of specific points on the bike, and calculate measurements from those. See Taking bike measurements for more about this.
This displays numeric information from your fit sources. Most metrics come from the Kinect camera, but you'll also see data from any ANT+ devices you've got connected, and a system-calculated cadence metric.
Fit log section
The "strip" along the bottom of the screen is the fit log. It shows all of the captures you've taken, and there are many ways that you can interact with it. See Reviewing fit artifacts
for more detail.
Once you’ve completed the fit, taking as many captures as required, click Next to progress from the capture screen to the report screen.
Step 3: Report
The report page prepares and previews a full fit report, incorporating:
- the images and metrics from your initial & final captures
- bike measurements, either entered manually or taken automatically with the measurement wand
- your commentary, either entered directly into a textbox on this Step 3 or into a Microsoft Word document.
