Using Filters

So Hot Right Now

Our new basketball workflow will have video and data ready to study in minutes.

Filters are an easy way to identify a segment of clips you would like to watch in Hudl. Filters are also a quick way to watch Highlights for a specific player. You can save and load filters for easy use while watching and studying film.

Before starting this tutorial, go to the Hudl video library and load a playlist. For more information about accessing the library and loading a playlist, see the Watching Videos on Hudl.com tutorial.

Filtering Your Clips

When you filter, you have the option to use the main filtering option or to quick filter.

Quick filtering

  1. Hang your mouse over a column header and click the Analyze icon that appears above the column header. Filter
  2. In the resulting filter pop-up, choose the criteria you wish to have appear in the filter. For instance, if you want to filter to all offensive plays in the ODK column, click the O option.
  3. Click the X in the top-right corner of the pop-up when you are finished selecting criteria.
  4. Click, Stop Filtering the filter will be automatically applied to the clips list.
  5. After you sort any clips, click Save This Order and your clips will always load and play in that order. Filter Hudl
  6. To revert back to game order, sort by PLAY#

Main Filtering

  1. Click the Filter Clips button in the orange bar above the clips list. The gray Filter Criteria boxes will now appear immediately above the clips list.
  2. In the first box, select a data column (such as ODK) to filter. Once you have selected the data column, other filter options will appear.
  3. The second box, the condition box, is where you will select a filter type to apply to your clips by choosing one from the drop-down box. The filter types in Hudl include:
    • In List – Generates a list of available filter values to choose from in the Value drop-down box. This is the easiest filter type to use. Only the selected values selected will appear in the clips list. For instance, if you want to filter to all offensive plays in the ODK column, click the O option.
    • Equal to – The Value input becomes a text box. Only clips with a data value that equals the value you type will appear in the clips list. For instance, if you want to filter to all offensive plays in the ODK column, you would type O in the Value box.
    • Not equal to – The Value input becomes a text box. Only clips with a data value that is not equal to the value you type will appear in the clips list. For instance, if you want to filter out all offensive plays in the ODK column (leaving just defensive and kick plays), you would type O in the Value box.
    • Greater than/equal to – The Value input becomes a text box. Only clips with a data value that is greater than or equal to the value you type will appear in the clips list. For instance, if you want to filter to see all plays with a distance greater than or equal to 10 yards, you would type 10 in the Value box.
    • Less than/equal to – The Value input becomes a text box. Only clips with a data value that is less than or equal to the value you type will appear in the clips list. For instance, if you want to filter to see all plays with a distance less than or equal to 5 yards, you would type 5 in the Value box.
    • Between – The Value input becomes two text boxes. Only clips with a data value that is between the two values you type will appear in the clips list. For instance, if you want to filter to see all plays with a distance between 3 and 6 yards, you would type 3 and 6 in the Value boxes.
  4. For this example, choose In List from the Choose a Condition box.
  5. Click in the Value input box to see a list of available values.
  6. Click each value you would like to include in your filter. You can choose multiple values.
  7. Click the X in the top-right corner of the pop-up to close the filter values window. Your filter will automatically be applied to the clips list.
  8. Click Save This Order. Here is a short video on filtering for volleyball.

Sorting

Sorting can be done by clicking the column header.

  1. Click once to sort numerically or alphabetically.
  2. Click twice to reverse the order
  3. Click a third time to sort by frequency

Frequency Sorting allows you to sort by how many times a value appears in the clips list. For example, if you would like to pull an opponent’s most common formation or play you can easily do that with Frequency sorting.

A second way to sort by frequency:

  1. Hang your mouse over the column you wish to sort
  2. Click the Analyze button.
  3. Click the Sort by Frequency (The three little bars at the bottom) to sort the values.
  4. The values will then be organized by their frequency, show you relative differences, and sort the list below—all with one click.

Editing Applied Filters

The black filter bar appears about above the clips list once you click Filter Clips, and will show the current filters applied to the clips list. You can add, remove, or edit filters from this bar.

  1. To add another filter, click the green plus sign on the left side of the black filter bar and follow steps 2-7 in the main filtering section to add a new filter.
  2. To remove an applied filter, click the red minus sign next to any of the current filters.
  3. To edit a specific filter, click on the column name, condition box, or data values in the filter’s row. A pop-up will reappear for you to choose new information for the filter.
  4. Click the Stop Filtering button to remove all filters and return to the unfiltered clips list.
