    Software plug-in for custom extensions?

    Hi, on the forum @Peter (Scatt staff) clearly and consistently answered that there was no intention from Scatt to publish any information on the data formats in the Scatt session (export) files. Requests have emerged every so often to get access to some data for personal use such as futher...

    Scatt Expert Android support

    Hi, I just received an email announcing the Android release. Good thing! UPDATED: an email from Scatt USA (scattusa.com). It advises to contact info@scatt.com to "share your questions and suggestions with us". Any reason why the forum is not mentioned in the email? Is it not an information...

    Target lighting

    There are so many threads related to correct target lighting, and so many new forum members who join to find solutions to impossible calibration, isn't it time Scatt finds more efficient ways to help their customers go successfully through this critical step at product startup? Here are a few...

    Holding breath: how much, recovering, training

    This is a subject that once in a while appears in the forum, most often in the form of "lacking air" and the effect on the urge to release your shot (and inevitable bad consequences). Based on my personal experience, sharing and training and also being an apneist I would like to share clues on...

    Hand drawn target for instant training

    Hello happy shooters, This is about the easiness of simply drawing a target on regular paper with perfect Scatt operation, at least with the BASIC, MX-02 and MX-W2 Scatts. A couple of months ago I tested calibrating with an MX-W2 on non-standard targets and showed that it works successfully in...

    Senior shooter and ageing

    Hi, I'm wondering how other senior shooters experience ageing and feeling evolution in some physical/mind abilities. For instance I'll soon turn 55 and my vision begins to deteriorate, which is normal at that age. It is mostly the easiness to control precise eye focus and keep that for a long...

    Plea for realistic "Make correction" sights adjustment simulation

    In the infinite list of upgrade possibilities and feature whishes, I tend to differentiate between comfort, richness and "look-and-feel" of the apps, analysis functions which are the heart of the Scatt, and quality of simulation and rendering which basically makes the Scatt usable and efficient...

    Pistol shooting: moving sensor front/rear to test balance

    Hello, Although I had long been very satisfied with the center of gravity and front/rear balance of my pistol, or so I thought, I recently had the idea to test moving the sensor more to the front or back to try other options. It was quite surprising, with very strong effects since my MX-W2...

    Home-made cheap 10m electronic-like target

    As many 10m shooters know, electronic targets do much more than simply replacing paper ones. They also introduce a quite different visual aspect of the target because they are often encased in a very bright square box. Hence the visual contrast vs. the environment is much stronger to the eye. As...

    Tricking Scatt with Fake Targets

    Scatt calibrates on itself. Literally. Here is a target "black center" on which my MX-W2 calibrated without the slightest problem: Of course there's a story behind this trick. 3 days ago I posted the Q&A tread "Question about reduced target size", in which I wondered how the Scatt -- at least...

    Question about reduced target size

    When setting up a reduced target put at a shorter distance, that distance must be measured from the sensor lense, not from the shooter. It makes sense but I would like to understand how it deals with the 10m target (the nearest of all) as follows: As a 10m pistol shooter, my front foot must be...

    Starting free (50m) pistol?

    Hi, Free pistol would apparently be difficult and require a fair level and pistol experience before starting. But what would that level be? So far I have been shooting 10m air for 3 years (average score 535-545, competition 5-10 points less) and a year of 25m LR, although the later with a...

    Accessing the target printing tool (Expert)

    There are post from several forum users about the bother of the target printing tool being only accessible when the Scatt sensor is on and connected. It was also mentioned as desirable to have that tool readily available from the home display. There is a precision worth adding: having reached...

    Do you have a physical warm-up routine before shooting?

    Do you warm-up before a match, a competition, or even a simple shooting session? This is a puzzling issue for me. When I do any kind or warm-up I become far less stable. Besides my heart rate doesn't drop as low as without warming-up, and that adds up instability. Meanwhile warm-up is...

    MUST read: Shooting guide articles on Scatt.com

    The scatt.com website provides substantial shooting guidelines in it's support pages. Many of you may already know, however since I only recently paid attention to them myself l figured some of you may have missed them too. They are MOST interesting. That about coordination analysis is the one...

    Training breach using the hold (red) trace

    As we all learn, "holding" the aiming after the shot is a key technique for precision breach. We learn that we should keep aiming while working the index and "be surprised" by the breach. But this is hard and long to learn, in particular because it is so hard to describe, even more to measure...

    "Expert" suggestion: option to show/hide shot numbers in the series targets (left column)

    The shots numbers on the series targets make the display clumsy when there are several well-grouped shots, as well as when shot numbers become 3-digit in intense trainings. As a user of "Expert" I like how the "Pro" software compares with the blank shot marks. There could be a parameter to...

    "Expert" suggestion : additional calculations related to instability at breach and F coefficient

    The calculations are remarquable supports for understanding technique quality and measuring improvement over time. Averages calculations, ie S1, S2, DA and the 10a0 and alike, a excellent tools to represent aiming stability over several timescales (last second and last .250sec.). However an...

    Scatt Expert bug report: Deleting/Undeleting series of shots with a few alreaded deleted/undeleted amidst

    Hi, This happens in Scatt Expert v. 20.05.22 dated 2020-05-05 (latest to date) on Windows 7 64-bits. It is about deleting/undeleting several shots at once (multiple selection), whether consecutive (like a series selected) or not (two or more disjoint selections) when the list of selected shots...

    Using different F values for dry-fire depending of training goals

    I recently began using different F values depending of my dry-fire training sessions in ISSF 10m pistol. My default remains 10. This is using Scatt Expert with an MX-W2. - I set F to zero when I want to train stability in the last 5 to 1 seconds before breach, because I don't want the quality...
