Batch List Only Partially Imports
on Feb 23, 2010 at 6:56:04 pm

Hello all,

I've been attempting to import a batch list into Final Cut Pro 6 but only the first clip appears when Final Cut performs the import.

Everything about the list appears to be in order. Batch lists that are exported from FCP's Browser window and re-imported work without a problem.

The data for my batch list is being exported from the Timeline as XML, then converted to a batch list using an Automator workflow script. The resulting text file appears properly formatted, but only the first item will import. Any ideas? Thanks.

Can you post any examples of the formatting?

Sure. Here are links to the files. FCP Batch List is a list generated from a FCP browser window. NewBatchList is what I created through XML and Automator.

Thanks.

It looks to me like the xml/automator batch list isn't properly formatted. Try ordering the columns in the same order, using more digits in the duration field, and making sure that there is only one tab between columns.

Unfortunately the Automator action is responsible for the order of the columns, as well as the number of zeros in the Duration, and I have no idea how to edit Automator actions.

I'll see if I can get in contact with the creator and see if he remembers what he did three years ago.Thank you very much.

Russell,

Thanks for giving your input. I managed to get in contact with the creator of the Automator script on Twitter and the source code is in a programming language way outside of my skill set. I'll just have to find another way.
