Camera Setup Tips

  • Put your phone on Do Not Disturb, as phone calls will end the recording.
  • Place the tripod or fence mount directly behind the center of the baseline for best results.
  • If using a tripod, extend to full height for the best viewing angle.
  • If using a fence mount, record with your iPhone's selfie camera as this makes set up easier.

Video Editing Tips

  • Favorite your best points on Apple Watch while scoring to save time later.
  • For optimal score change transitions, trim the end of each point so that it is 2 seconds after the last shot's ball bounce.
