Video Tutorial

You can export your designation lists to a video file by right-clicking a selected designation list and hovering over Export. The options are shown below. NOTE: When exporting video with links - you need more than .1s before and after the link on a designation to avoid export errors.

Video options – MPEG-4 - H.264/AVC is recommended as most people can play these and they are high quality and smaller files. Great for inserting into PowerPoint or emailing.

Include scrolling text and linked documents – this allows you to export video files that include the scrolling text and any linked documents that show in Presentation during playback.

Save each clip as a separate file – with this checked OnCue will create separate video clips instead of one video file for the list.

Save closed captions file – a variety of caption file options are included here.

You can also export using highlighter colors but the player you use must be able compatible.

Export to Video File

To export your designation list(s) to a text file, right-click a selected designation list, or lists, and choose Export > Export Designations to Text/XML...

Here are your options for exporting to a text file:

Here are the designation line format options with examples below:

(1) OnCue Designation Format

(2) PG:LN - PG:LN no text

(3) PG:LN - PG:LN with text

(4) Tab-Delimited (won't reimport)

Note: Text files do not carry annotation information, in order to do that use the Export to XML option.

Export to Text File

To export your designation list(s) to an XML file, right-click a selected designation list, or lists, and choose Export > Export Designations to Text/XML...

Here are your options for exporting to an XML file:

Include annotation information – the XML file format allows you to carry all of the annotation information along with the text file.

Include transcripts – this includes the transcript information in the XML file.

See Importing Designation Lists for more information.

Export to XML File

Can I export my designations to text or video? With scrolling text?

Can I share with or send/transfer a designation list to another OnCue user?

Can I import tuned lists or import all of my designations at once?

Designation Lists are the page/line clips of the deposition testimony for the purpose of playback in court. You will need a synchronized transcript file (.mdb or an OnCue xml) and the raw deposition video to use this feature (see Adding Synchronized Transcripts).

Designation Lists can be exported to either video file or text file and can be imported by text file or by OnCue xml file from other cases.

An OnCue designation xml export is the best way to transfer/share fine-tuned and linked designation lists with another OnCue case.
