Have the measuring tools been discontinued? The ability to measure velocity, distance, etc. is a critical component of the camera for many scientific purposes. Perhaps they've been relocated and I can't find them . . .

PCC setup is also generating the ph687 interface (the old standard looking user interface), where you can find the measurements function. For the moment, the new user interface called PCC do not have this tool but, as far as I know, it will be re-introduced in a next release.

As stated by Dynamite, you'll need to use the legacy application for measurement applications for now. We'll add measurements to a future version of PCC.

That's sounds reasonable, I was afraid those features were going to be discontinued.

For a future implementation of the measurements tools, a "snap to marker" feature would be an excellent addition. For scientific / technical work, especially at higher speeds (and the attendant low resolutions) the distance calibration can be rather inaccurate. I've used other software tools that can automatically locate the the center of a cross (or circle) with a subpixel accuracy to improve the quality of the distance calibration for image analysis.
