Re: How many video tracks does EDL support?

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but to my knowledge, any EDL will only reference ONE VIDEO TRACK.

Most forms of EDLS can indicate a dissolve and some rudimentary FX, but since EDL's are based on a linear tape workflow, they don't reference "tracks" as much as Sources.

So, if you have a mulit track project that you must convert to an EDL, in my opinion, the best way is to create a separate EDL for EACH video track.

Do you absolutely, positively need an EDL? There are better ways to transport project info, like XML or Automatic Duck.
