What are Court Animations?
Wolf’s Court Animations is a general term used for differing types of video-based motion trial graphics. They are particularly well suited at portraying issues related to timing and motion, three-dimensional space, and points of view (what was available to be seen by someone). They may be completely computer-generated, or they may be a HyperVideo portrayal, which blends site video or photographs with computer-generated elements, resulting in unsurpassed realism.
The multiple terminologies used for Court Animations can be challenging, but they all fit into the general term of video graphics. From an admissibility context, Court Animations are considered demonstrative evidence.
Why do Court Animations work?
Court Animations help jurors visualize the often-complex verbal testimony they hear. Studies of human learning abilities and preferences consistently show that visual exhibits, combined with spoken information, are a more effective learning method than either method alone. Issues involving motion and timing are particularly well portrayed by Court Animations. Besides the improved memory retention and learning characteristics, Court Animations also help to focus juror’s attention. Litigation teams throughout North America have benefited by using Wolf’s trial graphics services to facilitate juror’s tasks of comprehension and learning.
