SportsCode can import a vast array of tex­tu­al data. Most of the imports are sport spe­cif­ic and are very straight for­ward. However, if there is a prob­lem please let Sportstec know as it is like­ly the third par­ty data source has changed its data structure.

Imports can be accessed from the Main Menu > File > Import > All com­pat­i­ble third par­ty imports are list­ed in the Other tab.

An impor­tant item to note about import­ing is movie and data syn­chro­niza­tion, it is very like­ly that adjust­ments will have to made on the instances after the import. We rec­om­mend get­ting famil­iar with the Instance Adjustments and nudg­ing fea­tures in the Edit menu.

Each import has a spe­cif­ic for­mat and data struc­ture. Only the Edit List and SportsCode XML will be explained in great detail as we export both of these types of files. These are also com­mon­ly used in third par­ty solu­tions to feed data into SportsCode. There are quite a few users gen­er­at­ing or con­vert­ing data from exter­nal sources beyond SportsCode.
