  1. MPEG2 Video Extension is an application for Windows 10, created by Microsoft, that installs an MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 Codec. It appears, when you try to playback MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 media in the Movies & TV application, you get prompted with the pop-up showed below. It has been discovered that this application, that only shows up in Apps and Features, is conflicting with TrialDirector. Having this application installed makes Presentation Mode truncate the end of clips during playback. To uninstall this application please navigate to Apps and Features. Once uninstalled, restart the system to reset Windows codec structure.
  2. Hello MJoscelyn, Using the Depoview software you can create and export clips out of the software. Unfortunately, Depoview does not offer an option to combine the exported clips into one. If you would like to have this feature you would need to own TrialDirector or another third-party software that can combine separate media files. David Drummond Jr Technical Support Engineer
  3. By default case files are saved in the C:\Users\Public\InData\TrialDirector\Cases path. You can change this path by pressing the browse button in the Open a Case menu and navigating out to the location your case is saved. Note: If there is no .dat file is located in the Cases folder you will not be able to see your case in the list.

  7. As you work in Presentation mode loading exhibits into zones and using tools as needed, your work area serves as a stage that shows jurors everything you do. Setting up this stage and saving it prior to your courtroom presentation can prevent mistakes and save time. Unlike screen snapshots, this feature saves the layout of the actual exhibits. Simply load a saved stage and begin playing video, page through a transcript, or do anything else you would normally do in your presentation. You can save as many stages as needed and load the stage you need at the right time from a list in Presentation mode. This feature also comes in handy when your presentation is interrupted. For example, if court breaks for lunch, use Save Stage so that you can quickly return to where you left off when court resumes. [TABLE=cellspacing: 0] [TR] [TD][/TD] [TD]Tips: Consider setting the folder prefix (in Presentation Preferences > Tools) to the current date at the beginning of each trial day. This will enable you to locate the stages saved for each day of the trial more easily. After you save a stage, you can work with it in a variety of ways in Workbooks Explorer, Case Library, and Document Manager.[/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] To save a stage using the toolbar button Load, position, and annotate your exhibits and/or other items in Presentation mode. From the Application Tools, click the Save Stage button. The stage is automatically saved to a SaveStage folder in the location where the case is saved. (You can find this path in Case Properties.) Each saved stage is assigned a name with a prefix and the next number in sequence (i.e. SaveStage-000001, SaveStage-000002, etc.) You can set the prefix in Presentation Preferences > Tools and you can rename the folder in Windows Explorer if needed. To save and assign an ID to a stage using the command Load, position, and annotate your exhibits and/or other items in Presentation mode. Type -SA followed by the ID, and press ENTER. For example, -SA EXH0034 To load a saved stage Use the Navigation Tools to select the SaveStage folder. Select the stage you want to load, and then click the green button. Working with Saved Stages in TrialDirector When you first save a stage in Presentation mode, a SaveStage workbook is automatically created in the Workbooks Explorer area in TrialDirector. Each time you save another stage, it is added to this workbook and it appears as an item in the Case Explorer tree and Document Manager grid. You can: Move items from the Save Stage workbook to any other workbook, including Multi-Player Workbooks (which you can use to create a captivating opening or closing presentation). Rename, cut, copy, or paste Save Stage items in Standard Workbooks. Create presentation scripts containing Save Stage items. Use the Document Manager grid to edit the Doc ID, Description, Trial Exhibit Number or Exhibit Number for a Save Stage item. Use the Floating Grid to edit the Doc ID, Description, Trial Exhibit Number or Exhibit Number fields from the Case Explorer. Use the Assign Exhibit Numbers and/or Assign Trial Exhibit Numbers feature to batch fill Exhibit or Trial Exhibit numbers to selected Save Stage items. Add memos to Save Stage items. Use the standard Find feature to locate keywords within the Description, Doc ID, Exhibit ID, Trial Exhibit ID and Memo fields of Save Stage items. Drag and drop Save Stage items directly from the Case Explorer tree or Document Manager grid into Presentation Preview. (And if Mirror Mode is enabled, jurors will see it immediately.) To see these features in action, view the Save Stage Integration tutorial available on the indatacorp.com web site.

  11. Working with Attached Exhibits Exhibits can be attached to specific testimony in transcripts. For example, when a deponent refers to a particular deposition exhibits, provided that exhibit is loaded into TrialDirector, you can attach the exhibit to the relevant testimony. When you are working in Transcript Manager, attached exhibits display in the Exhibit Preview pane, located in the lower right corner of the Transcript Manager. When the Digital Video Transcript is played in Presentation mode, the exhibit attachments are automatically displayed. If there are any linked exhibits attached to a deposition in TimeCoder they can be opened in DepoView by clicking on the chain link icon next the line they are linked too. [TABLE=cellspacing: 0] [TR] [TD]Note: An attached exhibit is associated with the transcript lines to which it is attached. It is not associated with an individual clip.

[*]Click Attach to associate the exhibit with the transcript or Cancel to cancel the process. You can also click Back to return to the previous window. The attachment will appear as hidden text (green) in the transcript. The exhibit identifier is added to the Exhibits folder for the transcript in the Transcript Explorer pane. Clearing Attached Exhibits During Presentation playback, it is important to close the exhibit before moving onto another clip. This is even more critical when you are using a MultiPlayer Workbook. If the exhibit is not cleared, the MultiPlayer Workbook will not automatically move to the next item in the workbook. (Click here for details on using MultiPlayer Workbooks in Presentation mode.) When you clear an exhibit, you are simply closing it. If you want to remove the exhibit from the transcript, see Removing Attached Exhibits below. Locate the point in the testimony where the exhibit no longer needs to be displayed. Place your cursor on the appropriate line. Right-click and choose Clear Synchronized Exhibit or open the Transcript menu and select Clear Synchronized Exhibit.

If you will need to move your case, avoid using case security. Case security prevents use of pack and go and can complicate the use of case copy.
  15. In addition to organizing case exhibits using the Document Manager and Transcript Manager Tabs, TrialDirector provides a Workbooks tool that allows you to organize and relate specific groups of items, such as documents or clips related to a particular witness or issue. Note that adding an item to a workbook does not remove it from the Document Manager or Transcript Manager, it simply manages a copy to aid in your trial organization. By default, TrialDirector creates three workbooks for each case: Search Results, Trial Exhibits, and Witnesses. You can rename these workbooks as desired, and can create as many additional workbooks as necessary. In addition, during trial when documents or clips are admitted in the presentation mode, an Admitted workbook is automatically created. Within the Admitted workbook, a sub-workbook is created and labeled (by date) for each day of trial if exhibits are admitted, and includes all admitted items. Each admitted item is date and time stamped, and includes the item description. Workbooks are ordered alphanumerically. If you need to have them in particular order, you can add leading numbers before the workbook name To add items to a workbook, simply open the Case Explorer folder (above the Workbooks Explorer) that contains the item, then click and drag the item to the workbook. The item will be added to the workbook, but will still remain in the original folder. Create a New Workbook To add a new workbook, click on the Make New Workbook icon in the toolbar. A new workbook called New Workbook is added to the Workbooks Explorer. You can then rename the new workbook if desired. By default, the new workbook will be available in the Presentation mode. To make the workbook unavailable, right click on it and clear the Show in Presentation mode selector. To assign a colored icon to the workbook, right-click on the workbook name, point to Select Workbook Color or Type, and then click a color. Or, you can designate the workbook as a Carousel or as a MultiPlayer Workbook. Move Items into a Workbook There are two ways to move items to a Workbook: From the Case Library tab, select the item in the Case Explorer and drag the item to the desired workbook. Click on any Workbook to select it, then select items that you would like to add to the workbook (Shift-Click or Alt-Click). Right click on any of the selected items, then select the Send to Workbook command from the shortcut menu. Sort Workbook Contents There are two options for sorting items in a workbook: Manual Sort Order sorts items in the order they were inserted or manually arranged (see Rearrange Workbook Contents below). Item ID Sort Order sorts items in alphanumeric order by Item ID. By default, items in a workbook are sorted in Manual Sort Order. To sort by Item ID, do one of the following: Right-click on the desired workbook and select Item ID Sort Order from the drop-down menu. Click on the desired workbook and select Item ID Sort Order from the Workbooks menu. To manually sort items, do one of the following: Right-click on the desired workbook and select Manual Sort Order from the drop-down menu. Click on the desired workbook and select Manual Sort Order from the Workbooks menu. Rearrange Workbook Contents To change the order of items in a workbook, follow these steps: Right-click on the workbook and make sure the Manual Sort Order option is selected (see Sorting Workbook Contents above). Select the item(s) you would like to move and drag them in a new location in the workbook. The item(s) will be inserted before the selected position in the workbook. Rename a Workbook To rename a workbook, click on the desired workbook to make it active. Do one of the following: Press [F2] Right-click on the workbook and select Rename Workbook from the drop-down menu Select Rename Workbook from the Workbooks menu Type a new workbook name Click on any other workbook in the Workbooks Explorer to save the new name Print Workbook Contents To print the contents of a workbook, do one of the following: Select a workbook, open the Print window and select Workbook for the Print Range Right-click on the desired workbook and select Print Workbook Contents from the drop-down menu Select Print Workbook contents from the Workbooks menu Export Workbook Contents to a Script File Script files are used in TrialDirector to automate exhibit presentation. When a script file is created from the contents of a workbook, the workbook items are listed in the script file in order, allowing you to present the workbook items sequentially by executing the script. To export the contents of a workbook to a script file, do one of the following: Right-click on the desired workbook and select Send Workbook Contents To Presentation Script... from the shortcut menu. Click on the desired workbook and select Send Workbook Contents To Presentation Script... from the Workbooks menu. Enter a name for the script in the Script Name field. If you would like the script to advance automatically without having to enter the step script command, select the Advance Items Automatically Every Option. Adjust the advancement delay (slide interval) as desired. Click OK. Then, click Yes to confirm. The script file will be saved in the Scripts folder within the current case folder. Export Workbook Contents to a Volume By exporting a workbook, you can make a volume containing the workbook contents. The exported volume will include a load file (*.oll) and a database file (*.mdb) containing all of the items in the folder. In addition, you can choose to copy all of the source files into the volume folder. This is particularly helpful if the items in your case are located on several different volumes because it saves you from having to switch volumes. For example, you may have a case with a million items spread across 100 volumes, but only 150 of those items will actually be used in trial. By putting those items in a trial workbook and exporting the workbook to a volume, you can create a volume that only contains trial exhibits. [TABLE=cellspacing: 0] [TR] [TD]Note: Memo attachments will only be retained if the database file (*.mdb) is used to import the volume into a new case instead of the load file (*.oll).[/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] To export a workbook, click on the workbook you want to export to make it active. 2. Do one of the following: -Right-click on the workbook and select Send Workbook Contents To ... | New Volume ... from the shortcut menu -Click on the workbook and select Send Workbook Contents To ... | New Volume from the Workbooks menu. Verify that the workbook name shown in this window is the name of the workbook you want to export. Click [Next]. Enter a destination path in the Select a Destination Filepath field or click the [browse] button to select one using a navigation window. TrialDirector will create the specified folder if it does not already exist. The volume will be copied into this folder. Select a volume size limit in the Volume Size Limit field to ensure that the volume will be able to fit on your chosen media (CD ROM, local drive, etc.). TrialDirector will create additional volumes if your data exceeds the volume size limit. If you plan to copy the volume to a disk or a CD-ROM after it has been exported, choose the appropriate volume size so that the exported volume will not exceed the limits of your media. In the Reference Files Over field, enter the size limit (in MB) for files that will be copied into the exported volume folder. For item files that exceed this size, the load file will reference the original path to the file instead of copying the file to the volume. When the exported volume is loaded into a case, you can view a referenced file by mounting the volume where the file originally existed. Click [Next]. Select an export option Export Options: [TABLE=border: 1, cellspacing: 0] [TR] [TD=bgcolor: #C0C0C0]Option[/TD] [TD=bgcolor: #C0C0C0]Description[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Copy Object Files to New Volume[/TD] [TD]Allows you to copy the item files to the volume folder. If you do not select this option, the volume folder will only contain the load file, the database file and other related case files. There is no need to copy the files to the new volume if there are no changes to the actual image files and you only want to update the case database on another system to reflect new revisions and memos, etc.[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Naming Options for Exported Files[/TD] [TD]Allows you to determine the naming convention for exported files. The naming options are only available if the Copy object files to new volume option is enabled. Select whether to use the Page ID or a series of sequential numbers for the exported file names. For example, if the Page ID option is used, an exported document item of EXH101001 will have a file name of EXH101001.TIF. If the sequential numbers option is used, each exported object file name will be assigned a new name using a 7-digit numbering scheme; beginning with 0000001. For example, the first document image within the exported folder will have a file name of 0000001.TIF.[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Export Media Clips into Individual Media Files[/TD] [TD]This feature allows users to create individual Windows Media Video (*.wmv) files from Transcript Manager media clips. For example, a media clip is generated from specified in and out points of a parent video (i.e. *.mpeg) file. If the media clips are added to a workbook for export, this option is available. Check this option to export any media clips within the workbook to *.wmv files. The drop down list below is used to select the best encoding profile for the *.wmv file(s) to be created. The encoding profiles are listed by video resolution, video encoding bitrate and audio encoding bitrate. For example, the TDS-352x288-768-64-S-1-1 profile will encode the target *.wmv file with a resolution of 352x288, a video bitrate of 768Kbps and an audio bitrate of 64Kbps.

The [Pick] button allows you to set the global watermark.[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Brand Images With:[/TD] [TD]This allows you to apply footers to the bottom of all exported images. The default footer is the Document ID followed by the Page Number and then the Item ID. If you would like to customize the footer, you can add, remove, or rearrange the components of the footer in the Brand Images With field. %D% - Document ID %P% - Item ID %N% - Page Number %T% - Trial Exhibit Number %E% - Exhibit Number %DESC% - Description %RECNO% - Universal Record Number For example, if you wanted the Item ID and then the Page Number, you would enter %P% %N% in the field.[/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] When you have finished setting the options, click [Next]. Click [Export] to begin exporting the volume. TrialDirector will then prompt for the Volume Name for the export folder about to be created. This volume name is used for the export folder name, load file names and volume label references within some of the export load files. Enter the desired volume name and click [OK] to continue. Clicking [Cancel] will cancel the export. Once complete click [OK] . Apply Current Label to Workbook Items This feature will automatically apply the current exhibit label to all images contained within a workbook. This feature is useful for applying exhibit labels to hundreds (even thousands) of images in a batch processing method. Once the labels are applied to the images, the workbook can be exported or printed. Selecting the Apply all markups option when exporting a workbook will "brand" the exhibit label to the exported images. Select the current label style by clicking the Select Label option within the Label annotation tool drop down list. The label numbering scheme and source field for the label can be set here. It is important to make sure the current label style is set to your specifications prior to applying labels to a workbook. If the label style needs to be changed, you may have to manually remove the label from each image prior to applying labels again. To apply the current exhibit label to a workbook, right-click on the workbook and select Apply Current Label to Workbook Items. A thumbnail image of the current label will appear in the upper right side of the dialog, as shown above. If this is not the label you wish to apply, click [Cancel] and select the correct label. Select whether to apply the labels to all pages in the workbook or only page 1 of documents contained in the current workbook. Select whether to position the label at the bottom left or bottom right side of the image. A thumbnail image of the label position appears to the right. You can select whether to trim leading zeros that may occur in the label numbering scheme.
