I want to track the motion of a double pendulum that is released from different angles, i have no idea about how i can track something in MatLab. I recorded several videos of the double pendulum, now i wanted to set a dot/point on the lower and upper pendulum in MatLab, but it is not that easy as i thought. I would be nice, if anyone could explain me some basics steps or so. Many thanks in advance for your answers.
