Having Trouble Tagging a Highlight?

There are a couple different reasons you may not be able to highlight a clip:

  • The playlist is not published as Game Footage. Highlights can only be tagged for playlists that are listed under the Game Footage section of the Library.
  • You are not on the current season’s roster. Make sure your coach has added you to the roster of the season you want to tag.

Once you have tagged your best clips as highlights, the next step is to create a Premium Highlight. Creating a Premium Highlight will allow you to add music and title slides to the highlights you have tagged. Check out the tutorial to learn how make a killer Premium Highlight.
