There are varios options: Parallels Desktop, VM Ware Fusion or Virtual Box. This type of program is installed to MacOS and allows both operating systems to be active at the same time, so the performance of the computer is lower. We recommend Parallels Desktop.

Yes and yes. You can insert insert freeze frames in the timeline and presentation environments by clicking on the graphics tool. You can also decide the length of the freezeframe. Furthermore, you can add graphics to your freezeframe in the timeline and exported videos.
I have recorded a match in bits and pieces because I stopped the recording during downtime. Is it possible to merge these videos and analyse them all at the same time?
We recommend you merge different video files and convert them into one file before registering. You can do this with Nacsport: In the main menu, click the “Tools” tab and you will find “Merge and convert video files”.
Alternatively, you could analyse each file separately then add registers from each timeline into a Presentation window. This process is possible from Nacsport Scout Plus as it allows you to work with up to five videos in timeline and presentations. Nacsport Pro Plus and Nacsport Elite allow you to work with unlimited videos in these environments.
If I register an action incorrectly, can I change it in the timeline at a later time?
Is it possible to save graphics from a frame and work with them outside Nacsport?
