    workflow for archive&records /EDL

    Hi all and happy 2018...

    I am trying to generate a workflow for archive notes for documentaries which I am regularly producing.

    I need to deliver shotlists for footage and edited pieces to my clients. They want content and duration of all clips listed.

    EDL is helpful for music sheets since all music library clips have song names.

    My footage comes in clip names such as Clip 010011LKZ.

    I cannot change these clipnames due to my workflow.

    All I can do is to add headers and comments to each clip.

    Meaning: Clip 010011LKZ /added comment: Houses added description: Houses with red windows

    Is there any way, in EDL or elswhere, to get an edit list of all video clips in a sequence including my commments?

    I mean, the sequence refers to the orginal clips - but EDL won't deliver my comments. EDL will only deliver the clipname, in the above example that would be Clip 010011LKZ.

    If anyone can think of a workflow, I would highly appreciate it. My films are up to 90 min. long and it seems too much work to write down each single clip's content :-(

    Maybe EDL is not the right tool but even "get sequence information " won't help.

    Thanks

    In the List Tool for making EDL, under List Options->Both Picture and Sound tab is an option for including the clip comments. Turn that on and clip comments will appear on the line just above the clip name.

    Hi Dave,

    thanks so much but --- where do I find the list tool in EDL? Is this an MC 8 option only? I am still on MC 7Hmm

    The List tool for MC 8 is the EDL manager in MC 7. You need to edit the EDLSettings template. In there you'll find an option to output comments.

    Hello Dave, I checked "comments" in the options list (under edit next to active settings)

    Yet comments are not popping up - see screen shot
