Edit List

This import is mostly used in conjunction with a spreadsheet editor like Excel. Try exporting an edit list from SportsCode and look at its structure.

Note that Excel might insert hidden characters, so use the export as tab delimited file if creating an edit list in excel.

The file to be imported must be tab delimited file with the following columns in order and included as the first line:

  • start time
  • end time
  • category
  • Nth instance
  • #descriptors
  • descriptors…


The start time and end time must be in 00:00:00:00 format. These columns set the start and end time for the instance.

The category column represents the timeline row.

Nth instance is the number of the instance in the row.

# descriptors indicates how labels are in the instance.

descriptors… are the label names that are in the instances. The amount should match the # descriptors and each label should be separated by a tab.

Each instance must be on a separate line.
