Opening The Timeline Share

The timeline share can be opened by double clicking on the movie package that is being captured on the capture/coding computer. Alternatively, the .TLshare file is found inside the package. To access the package contents, right click on the package and choose Show package contents from the contextual menu. This will open the package and the timeline share file can be double clicked or dragged onto the SportsCode icon in the Dock.

The timeline share file does not show up in the package until the first instance is coded. It is recommended that an instance is coded to test the timeline share before a live event.

Once the timeline share file is open on the viewing computer, it will update automatically. The update on the viewing computer occurs approximately every 5 to 10 seconds depending on coding activity or network conditions.

NOTE: The timeline share feature requires a lot of resources to run smoothly. We recommend any computers used in conjunction with this feature be dedicated to this alone. Other applications should not be running.
