Hi.

I am working on a bunch of workflow automation tasks on several platforms for implementation in VFX workflows. The reason I want to create the projects externally, is because I want to structure the projects and add a lot of metadata externally captured with the files.

AVID is an obvious candidate, but also seems pretty "closed".

Ideally I'd write a project-file (which seems unlikely) with bins, sequences and all metadata set up.
The actual video and audio files could be relinked upon opening, but I want to create the full project and connect metadata to the files in batch processes.

Yup. I know the answer is "AVID is not supposed to be used this way", but still I want to use AVID this way.

Could AAFs be a way to go?
Or probably an import plugin for AVID could do the trick, if AVID allows for plugins.
It's not about creating single sequences, but more complex projects.

This is the project I am working on:
http://poparteu.github.io/

I can be contacted offlist on groven (at) mixedrealities (dot) no

Best
