EDL Error Message
on Mar 18, 2013 at 11:22:52 pm


I'm trying to create and EDL file from an FCP 7 sequence and I keep getting an error message that says

"The media files of one or more clips are missing timecode tracks and may also be missing reel names. Proceeding with the export will result in an EDL that will not represent the original sequence correctly."

All the clips are connected, there is nothing offline, and everything has been captured in so I can see timecodes and reel numbers. All graphics and effects have been removed.

I'm trying to send this to my editor to reconnect to original high-res, RED files.

Can anyone help me? Thank you.

If you open the EDL, how does it look like?
Do you see the right TC/ Reelnames?
AFAIK, RED does not have a Reelname, the folder name the clip is in is concidered the Reelname.
But if you see that in FCP, that should be good.

RED One footage does have reel names. They're just non-standard, 16–characters long. Not sure about Epic and Scarlet.
