How Do I Set My Filters?
Setting your Filters is easy. There are five main categories to choose from. Within each category there are numerous sub-categories for you to break the filters down by.
Next to each category, you will see a symbol that is grayed out. The symbol represents something that you will skip over when it is on. When active it will turn blue letting you know that one or more filters are set in that category.
To activate a Filter simply tap on it. If the filter description is dimmed and has a line through it, you will not see or hear those items.
If the Filter is white and fully visible, you will see and hear those items.
Next to each category and sub-category you will see a grayed out arrow. If it is illuminated then the filters are on. If it says mixed, then it means that only some of the filters in the category and sub-category are on. If it does not say Mixed, then all of the filters in that category or sub-category are on.
These Filters apply to every movie that you watch. They can be applied by opening your VidAngel app and tapping on the Menu button at the bottom right of the app.
When the Menu page opens, tap on Default Filters in order to set them for all of your movies and shows.
Default Filters use broad categories that can apply to all movies. To select your Filters, tap the Filter category, subcategory, or individual Filter. When the Filter is activated, it will be applied to each movie you watch. You may change these settings at any time, however, your changes will only apply to all shows you have not yet watched. Movie specific Filters will always supersede Default Filters.
Movie Specific Filters
Movie-specific Filters are the Filters we've created for the specific movie you want to watch. When opening a movie or show you will see text that says something like "FILTERS 23/32"
Tap the Filters button and you will be able to see the specific Filters of any given movie. Once you're in the Filters screen, you can customize your movies even further by taking out any objectionable content.
Filters are enabled by tapping directly on the Filter itself (use the drop-down icon to the side of the Filter categories and sub-categories to access additional Filters).
Changing Filters in the Middle of a Movie
- Stop the movie.
- Select the Filters button.
- Make the changes you desire to your movie's Filters. (Once you have begun a movie, these changes must be made in the movie specific Filters, not in your Default Filters.)
- Restart your movie with the new Filter settings.
NOTE: If you set movie specific Filters they will remain saved once you leave the movie. Movie specific settings will override any Default Filter settings. Once you have watched a movie, or set movie specific Filters, changes to your Default Filters will not modify your existing choices. Default Filters will only apply to movies that do not have movie specific Filters selected.
