Exporting tape logs from fcp

Hello,

Is there a way to get a nice human readable export of log and capture from a tape that I've annotated heavily in the log and capture tool?

Thanks
Lucy

Have you tried exporting a batch list and cleaning it up in a spreadsheet program like Excel?

If you highlight all the clips you want to include from your FCP bin, right click on any of them in your bin, then select Export > Batch List, it will create a fairly standard tab-delimited text file with all the clip data. Excel opens this file as a spreadsheet, and then you can delete all the columns except the ones that are useful to you. Various things can be done to make it more readable once in Excel.

I wouldn't be surprised to see that someone has an easier way, but this is typically how I have printed out log sheets for producers and also exported the data into other programs for tape cataloging. Perhaps it'll work for you!

Dave

Hey, thanks Dave, I will try that! Might just be the solution I need!

Just stumbled onto this and thought of your question. It isn't free, but appears to do a nice job outputting logging information from Final Cut Pro:

Never used it, but figured it was worth passing along. I've used other products from Digital Heaven before and have been happy with them.

Good luck!
