How To Transfer your videos From Hudl Technique to OnForm
Read the announcement: OnForm has acquired Hudl Technique
Watch this video to see how you can migrate your videos, tags and athletes in a snap! Or, follow the steps below.
After you transfer your videos to OnForm, you can easily search and organize them, or even copy them to an individual workspace. This video shows you how.
What videos will be transfered?
Our transfer process will automatically move any video from Hudl Technique that has been saved to the cloud and that was recorded OR viewed since January 1, 2020. All videos will be moved with their tag and athlete name so you can easily search within OnForm to find the video you are looking for.
Can I run the import multiple times?
Some of my videos show a black screen in Hudl Technique, what's going on?
After a lengthy period of time, those videos are removed from Technique. These videos have become unwatchable and we are unable to transfer them to OnForm.
What if I find a video that I want to transfer, but I've already done the migration?
No problem! Just go back and re-run the migration tool, any new videos that you recently opened or recorded will be found and transferred over, so if you have a very old video in Technique that you want transferred, make sure you open it and play it within Technique (just for a few seconds) and it will be flagged so you can transfer it the next time you run the migration tool. NOTE: the import system will only move videos that are on the Technique Cloud - share the video to yourself using the email sharing tool in Technique to move the video to the cloud.
Where do the videos go once transferred?
You will see a new 'Hudl Technique Videos' folder which will house all your videos. The tag and name of the person the videos were shared or tagged with will also be transferred and associated with the video. Once transferred, you will be able to use our search tools to find videos by tag and/or person. You will be able to immediately use any video for comparison, drawing markup etc. just as if you recorded it in OnForm.
After videos are transferred, what do I do?
OnForm is best when you create individual workspaces for each of your active clients/students. You can simply tap the "+" button on the Home screen to add a person (student/client/athlete), from there, a new chat thread and Library will be created. If you'd like, you can then transfer videos easily from the Hudl Technique folder to the person's newly created individual workspace.
How long does it take to transfer all my videos?
Our process is quite fast and can take just a few minutes, or up to an hour if you have thousands of videos. Just sit tight and let our cloud(s) do the work for you! Once the process is initiated, you can simply check back at a later time to see if it's done. You can cancel the process and re-run it if needed, also, you can use other apps like your mail or texting and let it run in the background too.
When will Hudl Technique be discontinued?
We will support existing Technique users and you may continue to use the app until September 1, 2021. After that date, videos will no longer be available for migration to OnForm.
Will the pro videos migrate from Technique?
No, the pro model videos will not be migrated.
Does this include Hudl Technique Golf app too?
Yes, both the Hudl Technique app and the Hudl Technique Golf app are part of the transition. Both apps will be discontinued. You can transfer your videos from the Hudl cloud using the same process no matter which app you are using.
I'm a paid Technique user. What benefits do I get on OnForm?
Please email email@example.com with the subject "paid Technique user" to receive a special offer for free credits to use OnForm, pro-rated from your Technique account.
What happens with Hudl Technique?
The Technique app will continue to work as you are used to until an anticipated shut-down date of September 1st. You many continue to use the app as needed to ensure you migrate videos or save videos to your own computer until then.
Why is OnForm more expensive than Technique?
What about Android users?
At this time, our Android app is only designed for athletes working with a coach. We've focused our resources in perfecting the Apple experience. We do intend to improve support for Android in the future but it's on our long term roadmap and not something we will be working on in the near-term.
