I believe you mentioned that REDCINE is going to generate a "pull list" from an EDL and XML/AAF project files.
Are you going to keep it simple and only support CMX EDL format, or the whole nine yards (SONY, etc.)??
** FYI - a great resource on EDL management is:
Are you thinking Apple FCP XML (which is not exactly the same as other NLE XML's)?
The reason I ask (or rather start the thread) is that EDL/XML compatability in terms of conform/batch re-process between NLE's and other applications is rarely done without issues.
Final Cut Pro Users have suffered through the de-bugging of Media Manager - with respect to speed effected clips, etc.
One thing that I face often is that very few filmmakers, and surprisingly few editors know how to properly "collapse" a timeline to generate a "true" cut/conform list.
I'm guess maybe you can "side-step" some of these issues (which CRIPPLED SC FINAL TOUCH and gave me many, many headaches) because (as far as I know) REDCINE isn't going to "conform" - theoretically it is just going to IDENTIFY which media is in the project via EDL/XLM - and then create a PULL LIST (I assume with a handle option) and then allow you to batch process/scale/crop/add LUT, etc. and then let the FINAL POST APPLICATION conform.
So, maybe the best approach is to make sure that ALL MEDIA in the "timeline" is in the PULL LIST - this way, if the editor has not "collapsed" the timeline correctly, it doesn't matter - as all media (used or not) that is in the timeline is in the PULL LIST -
Just wanted to get a PULL LIST thread going ...
