The free software called "Image" is available for the Mac from the anon. ftp 
site:  zippy.nimh.nih.gov
I believe it can do the analysis you need. Also, you can use a digitizing 
board with a mac, Video Spigot, for example, to capture single frames of video 
to be opened in the image analysis software.
