On Thursday EA Sports World launched a video mashup/highlight reel feature to the website. This is something that was actually alluded to in the survey I wrote about a month ago. With it you can string together highlights you have uploaded to the website and utilize some of the audio and visual effects that are provided to create a unique highlight reel.

All highlights that you currently have stored on the website will be available for use and there is no restriction on using clips from different games in a single reel. The screenshots that have been uploaded to the website can even be added into them. Not only can you use your highlights but you can search through and use ones made by other people. There are various visual effects that can be placed on a clip, a library of music to utilize, and a couple different sound effects and voice overs. Hopefully EA continues to expand on what is being offered for use. The sound effects and voice overs particularly are thin on options.

This is a pretty neat feature especially considering they aren’t charging anything for it. It will be most useful for those who are presenting running dynasties/franchises but will be a fun feature for everyone else. I’m curious to see just how creative some of the reels that are made turn out. I spent just a couple minutes messing around with it and created a basic one. Continue on to watch that and leave your thoughts in the comments.

    I tried this out this morning acually pretty cool. I'd like more editing options though like trimming a clip down and more audio from the Thompson Brothers that maybe could be like reactions to what happens. So they could have one for a big touchdown or buzzer beater events like that.

    Is there a limit to the number of videos you can use… or length of video? Editing down clips would be a HUGE addition to the feature.

    They should have a feature to let you put in your own music. Other than that, it seems pretty fun.

    Probably can’t let you use your own music cause of copyrights

    I like it. It's right up my ally. I think the next step would be to create a more universal system to create the videos from the game. All EA Sports games seems to use different systems. The next step would be to somehow increase the speed of uploading.

    When we use these videos for our franchises and leagues, what I have found is most guys consider it a hassle to learn and understand the feature. That's why I think it's important to make it one system for all games. I think EA gets that though. They use the same menu system for their sports games, so it's probably a matter of time before we see the same highlight system for each specific game.

    This seems like a very cool feature. like in other comments though, improvements such as adding your own music, cutting down the clips, and I think being able to download your custom video to EASW for Top 10 consideration would be great improvement. If any of this is already being done, please correct me

    Yeah, pretty cool feature for free. Does anyone know if you can download your completed hightlight reel? There is a download video link for the normal clips but there does not seem to be one for the highlight reels (only a "share" feature that links to EASW). Maybe I missed it.

    • Ty

      I have looked foreward and backward on EASW and cant seem to find anything that says you can download it to EASW, just like you said there is only a "Share" feature

      I'll ask them about this next chance I get.

    it would be near impossible to do the real wildcat in Madden because whenever you call a sweep (from headcoach) the WR goes way behind the QB like 10 yards

    • Ty

      Its not a perfect system, Its just a really close concept to the Wildcat, like the fact that that you have to audible if you make a pass in the Wildcat, but it is really close to the acutal. and That Sweep that you were talking about, is that the Falcon QB sweep, or a regular sweep, because with the Fakcon QB Sweep, the WR/RB is supposed to go back like in a Sweep to give the runner more room to to cut the ball up.

    I'm talking about Jet Sweep, you know where the WR comes in motion to take a hand-off, they end up going like 20 yards behind the QB in Madden
