Definition

Available in the Replay and Live workspaces this feature can be used to process events from a tagged video or recording, and perform the following actions:

  • Add events to a specific montage
  • Export events as clips in the background 
  • Publish events on a Telegram channel (see the Telegram section)

This processing is based on rules, and there are two categories of rules that you can apply to events


Manual rules are the actions that are applied to a list of events selected manually. Pick events in the event pane, click on the rule in the event pane header and those events will be processed. There are two default manual rules: "Add to current montage" and "Export in background". Add more manual rules and add events to different montages. In myDartfish Pro S, publish events to Telegram (see this article for more information).


Automatic rules are applied automatically if an event meets a condition based on its keywords. Automatic rules are available in myDartfish Pro S. Activate the automation, define the rule and every new event that meets the keyword requirements will be processed. You can also apply an automatic rule on existing events by selecting all of them and the running the rule.


Create a rule

  • Tick the Rule Monitoring box and click on Manage Rules

  • Open the Automatic Rules tab and click on New Rule
  • Set the criteria that the events need to meet in order to be processed by the rule
    • In the below example, the rule will apply to all the events that have the keyword "Foul" from the category "Last Play" and the keyword "Att 1/3" from the category "Field Zone"
    • You can create rules in which events must meet all the criteria, only one of them or a combination of both
    • Click on the "+" to add a new criteria
    • Criterias can be based on keywords, but also on event name, description and color


Tip: when creating a rule, open a tagged video. That way, a drop-down menu will be available in the Rule Editor when selecting keywords and keyword categories


  • When the criteria are defined, set the actions that will be performed. You can have more than one action by clicking on the "+"
  • Click on OK to save the rule
  • To activate the rule, tick the rule's checkbox and also the Enable Automatic Rules Monitoring. This allows you to prepare several rules and only use some of them based on the situation.  

  • Click on Close. Now, the rule is active and will apply on any new event that meets the criteria

Apply an automatic rule to existing events

An automatic rule is applied to any new event from the moment it has been enabled. If you want to apply the rule to events that are already tagged:

  • Select all the events in the event pane (use the hotkey Ctrl+A to do it faster)
  • Click on Manage Rules to open the Automation Rule Manager
  • Open the Automatic Rules tab
  • Select the rule in the table
  • Click on Run Now

The rule is applied and a message summarizes how many events are processed.


Publish events on Telegram

One of the action a rule can perform is to publish the event meeting the condition on a Telegram channel. This requires admin access to a Telegram channel, a Telegram Bot and other information. Read this tutorial to see how to set up the Telegram channel and create the rule in Dartfish software
