 If objections have been made by any of the parties during the course of depositions, the operator shall note said objection and the objecting parties shall have the appropriate portion of said deposition transcribed within ten (10) days after its recording or within such other period of time as the parties may stipulate and shall submit same to the assigned trial judge for the purpose of obtaining rulings on said objections. For that purpose, the assigned trial judge may view the entire videotape recording, any portion thereof, or listen to an audiotape recording thereof or read the transcript if it is deemed necessary.

 In the event that the presence of a judge has been waived by the stipulation of the parties, the judge shall rule on the objections prior to the date set for trial of the action and shall give notice to the parties of his or her rulings and his or her instructions for editing. The editing shall reflect the rulings of the judge and shall remove all reference to the objections. The judge may also permit further depositions of said witnesses. The party taking the depositions shall cause the videotape to be edited in accordance with the instructions of the judge.
