Best Practices for Capture

This tutorial is specific to our newest product, Hudl Sportscode. If you’re on Sportscode v11, use these resources instead or upgrade today.

Info:

Utilize the tips laid out in this tuto­r­i­al to reduce the fre­quen­cy of dropped frames and oth­er cap­ture issues.

  1. Restart your com­put­er before start­ing your capture.

  2. Exit out of all oth­er appli­ca­tions besides Hudl Sportscode and Finder. 

    Live cap­ture is a high­ly inten­sive process and uses a lot of your computer’s resources. Closing all oth­er appli­ca­tions will ensure that your computer’s resources are allo­cat­ed towards Hudl Sportscode and live capture.

  3. Typical cap­tures using the Blackmagic Mini Recorder or AJA U-TAP devices should use the HD720 or HD1080 cap­ture pre­set along with the frame rate based on the cap­ture feed’s res­o­lu­tion and frame rate. Alternatively, IP cap­tures should always uti­lize the From Source cap­ture preset.

  4. Turn off WiFi and Bluetooth. If uti­liz­ing IP cap­ture or live shar­ing, we rec­om­mend using ethernet.

    While this is a minor per­for­mance increase, we want to lim­it the num­ber of activ­i­ties your com­put­er is per­form­ing dur­ing live capture.
