Data availability

Video data that has been used in the evaluation of TRex has been deposited in MPG Open Access Data Repository (Edmond), under the Creative Commons BY 4.0 license, at https://dx.doi.org/10.17617/3.4yMost raw videos have been trimmed, since original files are each up to 200GB in size. Pre-processed versions (in PV format) are included, so that all steps after conversion can be reproduced directly (conversion speeds do not change with video length, so proportional results are reproducible as well). Full raw videos are made available upon reasonable request.All analysis scripts, scripts used to process the original videos, and the source code/pre-compiled binaries (linux-64) that have been used, are archived in this repository. Most intermediate data (PV videos, log files, tracking data, etc.) are included, and the binaries along with the scripts can be used to automatically generate all intermediate steps. The application source code is available for free under https://github.com/mooch443/trex.Videos 11, 12 and 13 are part of idtracker.ai's example videos: URL https://drive.google.com/file/d/1pAR6oJjrEn7jf_OU2yMdyT2UJZMTNoKC/view?usp=sharing (10_zebrafish.tar.gz) [Francisco Romero, 2018, Examples for idtracker.ai, Online, Accessed 23-Oct-2020];Video 7 (video_example_100fish_1min.avi): URL https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Tl64CHrQoc05PDElHvYGzjqtybQc4g37/view?usp=sharing [Francisco Romero, 2018, Examples for idtracker.ai, Online, Accessed 23-Oct-2020];V1 from Appendix 12: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Nir2fzgxofz-fcojEiG_JCNXsGQXj_9k [Francisco Romero, 2018, Examples for idtracker.ai, Online, Accessed 09-Feb-2021];
