Nacsport data management

In this video, we show you how to transfer your Nacsport data from one machine to another, along with changing the default storage location for your Nacsport data and setting the favorite location for your new analysis files to save to. You can use this video as a reminder of where files like templates (.naccat), databases (.nac) and presentations (.pre) need to be copied into if sharing between different machines and users too.





Import and export databases

Importing and exporting Nacsport databases is as easy as copying and pasting to and from the correct folders.


Navigate to your Documents folder.

Double click to open the NAC SPORT DATA folder.



Nacsport saves all data here, so it is important to copy the file you wish to export and then paste into a pre prepared folder to be shared with other nacsport users .

Double click to open the Databases Nacsport folder.

Select the database you want to export. 

Right click the .NAC file and click Copy.



The copied database can now be pasted into a premade folder to be shared.


The same method is used to copy Category templates and presentations.

Category templates are .naccat files and can be found in the Categories folder. Presentations are .pre files and can be found in the Pres folder. Both of these folders are in the NAC SPORT DATA folder.


When sending a Database, the receiver will need to have the same source movie used to create it. If the receiver does not have the source movie then you will also need to copy and paste the movie into the premade folder, along with the database file ready for sharing.



When receiving databases from other nacsport users, right click and copy the .NAC file.

Go to your Documents folder.

Open NAC SPORT DATA folder.

Open Databases Nacsport folder.

Paste the .NAC file into this folder. You can also just copy in the whole premade folder if you have the .NAC and video file for sharing as mentioned earlier.
