GTrace (General Trace program) is the successor to FEELtrace and the tools used to label the HUMAINE database. It allows users to play a video of a person and create 'traces' which show how the person's emotions appear to be changing over time. It includes over 50 scales, and also allows users to create their own. Alternative ways of using the scales are provided. It runs on current versions of Windows. A manual provides broad background as well as instructions for use.
