Multiple angles? Done.
Your manager filmed your game from the end-zone. Your assistant was recording from the sideline press box. Wouldn’t it be cool if you could splice those two videos together so you could see the same play from two angles?
“Intercutting” has been around for a while but Hudl streamlines it—our editor will automatically intercut your angles for you.
You’ve got better things to do (like coaching and winning)!
Dual-angle live capture
If your team has access to an extra camera, hook it up to Hudl! You can capture two angles of video in our editor live during the game to one computer. You don’t have to be a pro to cut like one.
To capture from two cameras that are a long ways away from each other (e.g. end zone and sideline) you’ll need a long cable to feed your camera to your laptop, but we’ve got a helpful guide on how to do exactly that.
Turn games into clips
Finding a specific moment in an entire game’s-worth of footage is tough. That’s why most editing and scouting systems allow you to break the game into individual clips (usually one play, possession, or point each).
In most cases, Hudl can automatically cut your footage into clips for you. Just start recording at the beginning of the play or possession and stop once it’s over. Repeat that process throughout the game and Hudl handles the rest.
Here is a quick rundown of how most coaches break down their footage into clips:
- Football - by play
- Basketball, soccer, lacrosse - by possession
- Volleyball - by point
- Baseball/softball - by swing
- Track - by jump/throw/race
- Wrestling - by match or reset on the mat
- Gymnastics/dance/cheerleading - by routine
- Swimming and Diving - by race/dive
