[Michael Gissing] "Until the EDL is dead we still need reels. That you can use reels to refer to folders of tapeless files is useful and it means EDLs, our last great hope for system to system transfer can live on.

Tape will be long gone but I suspect reels may survive, even if as a novelty way to describe folders, cards, SSDs etc."


Of course. That's why I said it needs to be redefined, it could point to an actual file, and the files physical location on a hard drive/SAN/server would not matter. A file structure can and will change over the course of it's useful life. A more modern reel naming system will help keep track of the files, as well as, tc and other metadata, even file name, but file name isn't even unique enough.

Like this:

This is a unique ID of a p2 file (generated by an XML send to fcp7). I can copy and paste this in to spotlight and find the file. It's not pretty but it's highly accurate.
