    Avid XML?

    I've worked with Final Cut Pros .fcpxml format for extracting various info about a project and need to do the same for productions made in Avid. However I've got a bunch of .avb-files which seems like another format. We've with somewhat of a success extracted data from and ALE, but aint there a textbased equivalent of the fcpxml-format for Avid? The goal is to calculate the duration of all audio and getting the filepaths.

    AVB files are Avid Bins, containing media and sequences; AVP are Avid Projects, containing project settings.

    Export the sequences as an AAF, that is the closest equivilant to an XML or FCPXML that Avid supports natively.

    Resolve and Premiere can read/write both aaf and xml.  You can try to use either of those as a "translator."
