B: Shortcuts Bar
CaseGuard’s Shortcut Bar helps you choose commands, perform key tasks, and check the status of your files.
C: Project Files
CaseGuard Studio automatically uploads your media to the Project Files panel. The Project Files panel is similar to a folder that can hold dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of video clips, audio clips, and still images. In CaseGuard Studio, your media appears as file icons, which link to the media files on your Mac or storage device. You can reorganize your icons by renaming and moving files within the Project Files Panel.A Project is defined in the software as the original evidentiary file, and the “child” files you are placing redaction and enhancement work on. A child file is an individual file (e.g. a video file, audio recording, PDF, or image) that you’ve placed in a project. There can be multiple child files in any given project.
D: Task List
The Task List shows you the enhancement and redaction work that has been applied to your files, as well as the tasks you need to process.
E: Additional Panels
Tool Panels in CaseGuard Studio can be resized and rearranged. To change the layout of your panels, simply click the icon in the top right corner of the panel.
F: Tool Properties
The Tool Properties Panel shows you a list of tools you can use to edit your media file. Depending on your file, the Tool Properties Panel changes based on the type of tool you select in the left-hand column, expanding to show you a list of all the tools available within the given toolset you are accessing.
G: Status Bar
The Status Bar tells you how much time CaseGuard Studio needs to process the last user action (e.g., detecting objects, processing enhancements, etc.) The progress indicator gives you an estimate of how long you need to wait for the software to finish.
H: Tool Bar
The Tool Bar is where you can select what tool set you want to use to begin enhancing and redacting content.
I: Workspace Viewer
The Workspace Viewer is where you’ll view video clips and media. Your footage or images play back in the viewer.
