Vision Exporter Guide
OpenField to Vision
Steps to complete in Openfield:
- Ensure you have ‘Gen2’ Velocity and Acceleration plug-ins applied to your OpenField Account and that you have Velocity and Acceleration Bandings applied to your Athletes in the OpenField Cloud.
Your regional operations team should be able to check the plug-ins applied to your account.
- After downloading data from Catapult devices ensure the user has edited the Activity to begin at the start of the match or training session and performed a ‘Fast Bake’ on the activity (Right click on the Activity Bar in the OpenField Console > Bake Activity > Fast Bake).
- Take note of the Activity Start time (HH:MM:SS)
- Full Sync from the OpenField console to the OpenField Cloud.
Steps to complete in Vision Exporter:
- Open up the Vision Exporter page:
- Log into the Vision Exporter tool using the same credentials from the OpenField account from which you have just completed your “Full Sync”.
In UNIX timestamp, enter the OpenField Activity start time minus any time that has elapsed before the start of the activity on the video that you want to sync your data to.If UNIX unknown - use the UNIX timestamp conversion tool (https://www.epochconverter.com/).
If the OpenField Activity Start time is 17:00:00 and 00:10:00 has elapsed on the video before the start of the activity, the sync time you would use is 16:50:00
- Select the “Events”, and/or “Efforts” you wish to import to Catapult Vision, editing any thresholds, and lead and lag time as you see fit.
- Once you have selected all of the information you need, click “Process OFD Files” at the bottom of the page.
- Once the exporter has finished extracting the data from OpenField, click “Download CSV”. Your data is now in a read-able format for Catapult Vision and ready for importing.
Steps to complete in Catapult Vision:
- Open Catapult Vision, load in your video file and any additional tags you wish to use in your project in the “Settings” tab.
- Select the “Tag” tab
- You will notice the option to click “File” in the Apple menu bar at the top of the screen. Scroll down and select “Import”, then select “Tags from CSV”
- Select your downloaded CSV file, and your tags should import into Catapult Vision.
Note: If the tags do not line up with the video, you have the option to offset them so they line up properly after they have been imported.
- To do this, using the playhead, select a known instance on your timeline (a high acceleration, IMA event, a Jump event etc) that you can match up to your video.
- Once on that tag, go to the apple menu bar, and select “Clip”.
- Scroll down to “Bookmark”, and select “Set at Playhead”.
- You will notice a white line appear on your timeline where you have set the bookmark.
- Proceed to scroll forward or back to the point in the video of that known effort (player accelerating, jumping etc), and simply pause the playhead over that effort.
- Go back to your Apple Menu bar and select “Clip”, and scroll down to “Offset Clips Relative to Bookmark...”.
- You will then see the option to move all of your clips, or just those that occur after the playhead either forward or backwards depending on where you have set your playhead.
- All of your efforts should then move on the timeline and be synced up properly.
