  • Export designations from Case Notebook into TrialDirector??

    I have a client/paralegal using Case Notebook. They are creating and trimming designations in Case Notebook and want to send me the designation/trimming data for me to use in TD (NOT send me the MPEGs).

    I don't know of any way to do this. They think they've done it in the past.

    They tried sending me 3 files they exported from CN: a .PTF, a .VID and a .XML file. I don't know of any way to use that information in TD.

    I'm not even sure if there is any sort of export to TD option? Even exporting some sort of CCS file data?

    Sorry for the delay Tom.

    Whichever file you receive, it would have to be something equivalent to the CCS format that TrialDirector 6 uses for clip creation. With CCS files they can be easily edited in Notepad... they just have to be tailored to adjust for formatting if it's coming from a 3rd party program like Case Notebook. We're unfamiliar with what Case Notebook uses for their clip creation scripting. If you can get with WestLaw / Thompson Reuters support to figure out what counts as a clip creation script, you might be able to tailor that to match some of the examples below.


    You'll see Stacy King listed. Deponents are typically scripted in this format

    !(Deponent Last Name, Deponent First Name (Vol. 01) - 1/1/2000 [MP4 VIDEO])

    Clips are setup like this - it's an example of a clip with only ONE segment.
    C(JS-1234)
    00012:14 - 00012:16 (00:07:37.967 - 00:07:42.433)

    Descriptions are optional.. but can be set like this
    D(Johns Deposition)

    If you have MULTIPLE segments within a clip.. it would look like this:
    C(JS-4567)
    00012:14 - 00012:16 (00:07:37.967 - 00:07:42.433)
    00010:01 - 00011:03 (00:05:10.087 - 00:06:16.773)
    00014:19 - 00015:03 (00:09:29.912 - 00:09:49.008)

    All tied up - Opening up a clip creation script (CCS file) would look like the example we have below -
