Step 1/4 - Sign Up and Log In
To create an event you will need an account, go here to Sign
If you already have an account, you will need to Log In.
After that, you can go to your user profile by clicking on your profile photo. Then click on the Create Event (or [+] plus sign on mobile devices) button.
Step 2/4 - Add Event Info
For this step you will need to be in the Events Window.
Click on the EVENT button, then enter the event Name, Location and Start & End times. Then click the CREATE button. Once the new Event is created, click and enter the Event.
Step 3/4 - Invite a Videographer
In the Event just created, click on the "Add Videographer" button.
Type in the email address of the videographer you want to invite/add, this person will be in charge of videoing the event.
The videographer will receive an email invite providing a link to the Event and a link for uploading the video once the event is over.
Step 4/4 - Invite others to HiLight the Event
Add Invitees by clicking on the Add Person icon:
One by one type in the email address for the person(s) you wish to invite and then press INVITE
Each invitee you have just entered will appear as a future contact that can be reused across other events, as well as being invited to the current event.
You are now ready to begin marking the Event for Hilights you see in real time
Add Markers & Toppings
Step 1/2 - Adding a Marker & Toppings (during the match)
Log in into the app and go to the Event page. Once there you should see an ADD MARKER button at the bottom, if not, that means the Event is not longer receiving markers.
During the game and when you see an interesting play click the ADD MARKER button to generate a new marker. Then you will be offered a list of Tags and Persons (players) that you may want to assign to that new marker.
You may add new Tags and Players by clicking on the lightly shaded “Add…” button in both areas.
Note: You can create toppings (persons and tag sets) before the event via the settings menu.
Step 2/2 - Customize Tags, Persons and Settings
Managing application settings requires that you click on the 3 Line Menu item in the primary Events page in the upper left of the screen. Then you will select the Settings link.
Tag Sets can be modified by scrolling to the Default set and renaming it via the pen icon , or adding a new one by clicking on the Add Tag Set button. A Tag can be added in the existing tag set by clicking on the Add Tag button.
Person Sets can be modified by scrolling to the Default set and renaming it via the pen icon , or adding a new one by clicking on the Add Person Set button. A Person can be added in the existing Person set by clicking on the Add Person button.
Contact Sets, which are lists of people that may be consistently invited to hilight Events can be maintained and modified by scrolling to the Contact Sets area and naming it via the pen icon , or adding a new one by clicking on the Add Contact Set button. A Contact can be added in the existing Contact set by clicking on the Add Contact button.
Changes and additions made to the app settings persist through the entire HiLight lifecycle so you will be able to reuse them in future events.
Note: You should never erase a person/player or play from a Person Set or Tag Set as that will erase the name from all Hilights to which they were marked. You may change or modify a player name or play type, but it will change it for all the Hilights to which it was associated.
Record the Event
Step 1/2 - Videographer Sets the Start Recording Time
This is one of the most important parts of the entire HiLights™ creation process, we call it the App and Camera Recording sync.
Log in as Videographer, go to Event page and click the START RECORDING button on the Event page at the precise time the recording is launched in the camera.
After clicking the START RECORDING button it will become an ADD MARKER button. This may help you to check if START RECORDING has been clicked or not.
As long as the sync has been done correctly you can then video multiple segments without any further action.
If the start recording time is not synchronized with the camera recording it may produce markers out of sync. Don't worry we have a process for repairing that.
Contact the support team if you have any problem with the syncing.
Step 2/2 - Upload Video and launch HiLights™ Creation
Log in into the app as videographer, go to the Event page and click the UPLOAD VIDEO button. You will be redirected to the upload section. Browse your PC for the video segments recorded (drag and drop is supported) and add them to the upload section. You should be able to see the upload process percentage.
Once all video segments have been uploaded to our platform click on the Start HiLights™ Creation Now button to launch the HiLights creation process.
After the creation is launched our platform will process the videos segments and syncronize the markers created by users.
Once the entire process is finished, each user that has created HiLights™ on that Event will receive a custom link to watch their own HiLights™.
