Good non-FCP app for totalling up clip durations?
on Mar 27, 2012 at 11:40:39 pm

Curious, if anyone knows of a simple, non-FCP vid app (like VLC or MPEG Streamclip) that’ll easily total up clip durations for me? Recently having transcode issues with FCP L&T tool - not transferring original clips in their entirety - and need some kind of system for checking the transfers vs the originals. Checking each original clip at the finder level vs what's in the FCP bin is VERY time-consuming. Thinking I can throw all the FCP transcoded clips into a sequence and get my total duration. Just need to figure out how I can do the same for the camera original files. Note files are Canon HDSRL-created H264s.
Nick.

Not sure of an app out there, but why do you think you need to do this?

Hi
I have done a similar thing for calculating archive used in programmes. It works with audio and video. Basically export and edl cmx3600. Video only. Then goto a website called pump audio
http://cuesheet.pumpaudio.com/

Create a free account and then you can upload the edl and it will convert it into an excel spreadsheet.

You should be able to import your raw dslr clips onto the timeline. As long as you don't try to edit them, just export and edl of then then you can compare the two excel spreadsheets.

Best
Nick
