CMX3600 Standard Format + some extensions
EDL Export (Export Composition) supports both standard CMX 3600 format and an extended EDL format that includes :
- Long tapenames
- Clipname details
- File path detail per event
Comment fields are parsed for clipname and file path (event material) information.
If an event is followed by a clipname specifier e.g. :
* FROM CLIP NAME: water_shot_661
Then the event is loaded and the clip is created with a clip name as specified.
If an event is followed with a file path e.g.
* FROM FILE: C:\media\scans\442\film_cc_scans.007882.dpx
Then the event material will be loaded into the library if we enable Import Material from File Paths on EDL import :
See the Export Composition chapter for details of EDL export options.
