In Hudl you can intercut multiple angles to your video. Intercutting takes different angles of each play and cuts them into a single clip. That way, when you watch a clip, it will have all of the angles seamed together. You have the option to auto-intercut the angles or manually intercut the angles. Once you have intercut the clips, playing a clip will show each angle in succession.
Before starting this tutorial, go to the Hudl Video Editor and create a project. For more information about accessing Hudl Video Editor and creating a project, see the Creating a Project in Hudl Video Editor tutorial.
To intercut multiple angles together, you need to have multiple angles added to your project. For more information about capturing video in the Hudl Video Editor, see the video editor capture tutorials at Hudl.com/Tutorials.
Intercutting Angles Together
The Hudl Video Editor only shows one angle at a time and defaults by showing the most recently captured angle. Change the angle you are viewing by selecting the appropriate angle from the drop-down box in the Edit section at the top of the Hudl Video Editor.
Intercutting Multiple Angles
- Manual Intercut: To manually intercut the angles, click the Intercut button. The clip matching dialog will appear. This allows you to match clips from angles included in your project. This box can be expanded to the size you wish. This makes the process easier, if you have multiple angles to intercut. Skip to Step 7 to continue Manual Intercut
- Auto Intercut: To Auto-Intercut the angles, click the Auto Intercut button.
- An instruction diagram will appear, showing you your next step for clip matching. When you have read through the instructions click I’ve got it. Let’s go.
- The Auto Intercut window will allow you to match your video angles.
- Use the playback buttons to adjust the video so that all angles are in the same location for intercut. Matching your clips as close as possible will help your video to intercut correctly.
- Once you have matched your clips, click Angles are matched. Auto Intercut button found below the video screens.
- When the Edit Clip Matching window appears, do a spot-check to make sure that all the clips are matched correctly. One way to do that is for every 10 clips, click the play button in the header row to play the clips side by side and make sure they match up. If they match, go 10 clips further.
- If you find two clips that do not match there are two methods of correcting this:
- If one of the angles is missing a play, you will want to add a clip gap in that angle. To add a clip gap, click the clip number where the clip should be and click the right arrow that says Shift Clips Right. You can remove the clip gap at any time by clicking the X button that says Remove Clip Gap.
- If one of the angles has an extra play that you no longer want, you can remove the clip by right-clicking on the clip and selecting Exclude Clip.
