[Franz Bieberkopf] "Nonetheless, all interesting, not least since I haven't come across any info on how Avid or PPro projects are structured ..."

I popped the hood on a few Premiere Pro project files to do a little bit of in-house development to work around what David L. so aptly calls "the project handling stupids."

Premiere Pro projects are essentially a description of the current state of every object in the project (assets, sequences, tracks, clips, etc.), all wrapped in XML.

It's pretty human-readable, and if you're the adventurous sort, manually and programmatically modifiable. (Danger, Will Robinson!)
