Bulk Editing Tips to Maximize Your Workflow


In the fast-paced world of sports videography, time is of the essence. The quicker you can edit, tag, title, and publish your highlights, the sooner athletes, fans, and scouts can view them. With Fivestar’s Bulk Editing Tool, we designed it so you can significantly cut down the hours you spend on post-production tasks. Here’s a guide to harnessing its full potential:

  1. Understand the Power of Bulk Editing:

Quick Overview: The Bulk Editing Tool allows you to select multiple highlights simultaneously and make unified changes. Whether you’re titling, pricing, tagging, or publishing, this tool can reduce hours of uploading, tagging and publishing work into just a few minutes.

  1. Streamline Your Tagging Process:

Group Similar Clips Together: Before you start bulk editing, group similar highlights together. For instance, if you have several clips from the same game or event, tag, title, and price them as a batch.

Standardize Your Tags: Create a list of standard tags that you frequently use. This way, you can quickly apply them to multiple highlights without retyping. 

Pro Tip: Fivestar allows you to save Tags into the database for quick tagging.

  1. Uniform Titling with a Twist:

While you can title clips in bulk, remember to add a unique identifier to each clip. For example, “[Team Name] Soccer Highlights – [Game Date]” can be used as a base title, but add a differentiating factor like “Goal by [Player Name]” to make each highlight distinct.

  1. Pricing Strategies:

Standardize Pricing Tiers: If you offer highlights at different price points (e.g., standard plays vs. standout moments), categorize them beforehand. This way, you can bulk price each category quickly.

  1. Publish in Batches:

Once you’ve titled, tagged, and priced your clips, use the bulk editing tool to publish them all at once. This ensures your content goes live simultaneously, creating a bigger splash and attracting more viewers.

  1. Review Before You Confirm:

The power of bulk editing also comes with the responsibility of ensuring accuracy. Always review your changes before confirming to ensure there aren’t any errors.

  1. Stay Updated:

Regularly check for updates and new features. As Fivestar continues to improve and refine its tools, you’ll want to be in the know to maximize your efficiency.


By leveraging the power of the Bulk Editing Tool, you can drastically improve your workflow, allowing you to focus more on capturing standout moments on the field and less on the post-production and upload grind. Happy filming and editing!
