How Clips from an EDL Are Named
Clips imported from an EDL are named in one of two ways. If the EDL was exported
from a nonlinear system, the name is exported like this:
* FROM CLIP NAME: CLIP NAME HERE
CLIP NAME HERE
is the name of your clip. Final Cut Pro can recognize clip names
exported from the following nonlinear editing systems: Final Cut Pro, Media 100, and Avid.
Avid EDLs that use 24 audio tracks are not supported.
In all other cases, Final Cut Pro uses the reel name as the clip name. Dissolves and
wipes are mapped to the appropriate transitions following the basic SMPTE set. Key
edits are imported as well.
Final Cut Pro places markers in the imported sequence where errors occur.
