Convert and merge EDL files to CSV lists (for Excel or Google Sheets) or convert CSV lists back into an EDL file for Media Composer, Premiere Pro, Resolve, Final Cut and others.
Use this EDL tool to convert different NLE sequence formats. Check out the following documentation to see if this tool is suitable for your use case. In case you need to create VFX, stock or music lists, we may have even better tools for that. The converter will ignore most audio tracks and video transitions can cause problems.
[Premiere Pro, DaVinci Resolve]
[See preset below]
The tool is not made for converting complete editing sequences into another format for further editing in another NLE. We recommend using the conversion options in DaVinci Resolve, for example.
Make sure that you only include necessary informations like the original file names in your EDL export. Most of the other export options are not needed to use this tool. Information about audio or video levels, transitions, LUTs or effects are irrelevant for this tool and can be disabled.
EDL files have some limitations, like the amount of video tracks, the missing details about framerates of the source clips or the sum of total entries. Depending on the use case, you should therefore rely on an XML (Final Cut Pro 7 XML) file or other XML format.
The EDL tool automatically removes duplicate or identical entries. Dublicates with the same timecode and the same clip name will be removed.
You can merge up to 15 sequence files of the same file format.
If you activate this option, all clips will be sorted by clip name. The timecode will be adjusted automatically.
If you activate this option, all clips will be sorted in reverse order. The timecode will be adjusted automatically. If you use this option together with "Order by clip name", the clips names will be ordered descending.
This option allows you to add handle frames to each clip. This can be usefull for some color workflows. The handle length can be between 1 or 50 frames.
This option will compare the previews clip with the next clip and will merge them into one clip, if they source clip timecodes overlap. It's an option for collecting source clip e.g. for some color or vfx workflows.
This option will overwrite the clip name with the name given in the locator.
This option will overwrite the tape name with the file name if tape value is AX.
This function removes framerange in clip names and thus simplifies relinking of image sequences in Premiere Pro and similar programs. If this option is activated, all strings in all columns containing files with the extension ".arx" or ".dpx" are corrected. For example,
This option ignores all files with the following file endings: wav, mp3, aiff, aac, aif, asnd, m4a, omf, aaf
This tool accepts semicolon-separated and comma-separated .csv files.
