Your scene will load and then you choose your field type. Once selected, press 'Next'

An image of your scene will appear with 4 annotations. You should:

  • Move each annotation into the corner of the field/court

  • Pinch to zoom the image for increased accuracy when placing annotations

  • Once happy with your annotations, press 'Next'

If the image doesn't capture the full field, you should go back, adjust the camera aim, then begin the calibration process again

Your scene will calibrate and then show you an image for review:

  • If you're unhappy with the image, repeat the calibration process

  • If you're happy with the image, press 'Done'

You can now scroll down, enter your recording details including:

  • Name

  • Description

  • Sharing options

Then press 'Start'

Your recording has now started and you will see it in your recordings tab
