EDL is compatible with all major editing software.
Avid Media Composer
Final Cut Pro 7
DaVinci resolve (it has a free version)
And any other editing software that lets you import an EDL file…
To import the EDL and reconnect the sequence
Import the EDL
Go to the sequence
Reconnect the offline sequence
Continue your editing
Import Timeline -->
Import AFF, EDL, XML ...
Select your EDL file
Add sequence settings if needed
If you have your clip in the
Media Pool it should automatically reconnect the sequence, if you have no clips in the Media Pool it might complain and note let you import the EDL. Otherwise if the right clip are not in the media pool, you might need to reconnect them to the original. See Davinci Resolve user manual for how.
For now a workaround for Final cut pro X not supporting EDL is that you can open the EDL in Davinci resolve convert it to XML that will work with final cut X.
In adobe premiere there is an option to
align timecodeThe Align Timecode option is also checked by default to align the media file's source timecode to the clip being linked.
This option can be useful if you imported in autoEdit footage directly from a camcorder that might have camera time codes offsets (eg rec run, time of the day, free run etc..) as autoEdit would read the metadata of the file and calculate the offset for you automatically.
