Working with Video Clips
Creating a video clip is easy in TrialDirector. A video clip consists of one or more segments taken
from a synchronized transcript, such as a digital video transcript (DVT). By combining several
segments into a single clip, you can play relevant testimony sequentially, without interruptions such
as long pauses, objections or irrelevant testimony. In this section, we’ll show you how to create a
video clip using one method. TrialDirector gives you the flexibility to create clips using a variety of
other methods as well. Refer to “Working with Transcript Clips” in the TrialDirector Help system for
more information on creating and managing clips.
