Import EDL for Review

Recommended Posts

DaVinci Resolve has limited support for importing EDLs.  I think its limited support is a good convention to replicate in Ftrack.  Basically, when you import a clip into Resolve (a single movie), you can also import an EDL.  The EDL is only used to determine where the cut points are; the actual clip filenames in the EDL aren't used.  Also, the EDL must be very simple - a single track.  The same functionality would be useful when uploading a long video to Ftrack, to provide cut points to jump between. 

A further improvement would be associating those cut points to Ftrack entities, for example if each cut point represents a "shot", being able to associate the long movie with the actual Ftrack shots.  But I can see that being difficult.
