Create Edit Decision Lists - EDLs - from Final Cut Pro X XML files. The EDLs conform to the CMX 3600 standard and can be used to bring your cut into post production systems like DaVinci, Smoke, etc.
New in EDL-X 2.0
Version 2 is a near-complete re-write of the application, removing some previous limitations, and adding some new features:
- Role Filtering: control what footage is included based on Roles assigned in FCP X.
- Support for retimed footage on all nesting levels.
- List Effects including some parameters and keyframes.
- Fades at the head or tail of clips can be represented as dissolves in the EDL.
- EDL-X can be used as a Share Destination straight from FCP X's Share menu. This means that an XML file doesn't have to be explicitly saved to disk any more, and sequences/cuts/projects can be made to EDL-X from FCP X in a single step.
EDL-X version 2.0 is available as a free upgrade on the Mac App Store.
EDL-X groups all video and audio clips into as few tracks as possible. Each video track gets its own EDL, with synch audio in the same EDL.
EDL X features flexible Source Reel Name handling:
- Source names can be read directly from the FCP XML file, or from the QuickTime files used in the project.
- Alternatively, media file names, or full file paths can be used.
- Source names can be made to conform to strict CMX standards (three numbers), or 8, 16, 32 or unlimited alpha-numerical characters.
- Each EDL includes a source table, allowing for easy tracking of any name conversions.
- All source names are user-editable, on a per-source basis.
- The Sources listed in the Sources Tab can be saved as tab-delimited text.
EDL-X version 2 does not save documents any more, but continues to all settings.
Drag and drop XML files to create EDLs.
EDL-X supports reading source reel information from XML files exported from FCP X.
Markers and Clip Notes can be reflected in EDLs.
