IMHO, this is the best way if you need to do EDLs:
In MC, choose Output->EDL. This will launch EDL Manager.
The first thing to do in EDL Manager is open the Option window (CTRL-2 or CMD-2). There you choose an EDL format. You can ask the post house what flavor they prefer, but usually CMX3600 will do the trick (this used to be more important in the days of linear online bays). Unless they specify a certain type of switcher (vision mixer), never mind that setting.
Master List tab
Source TC should usually be Start TC, Record TC should usually be TC1, Reel ID should be Tape or Filename. Most of the times, you will need an A-sorted list for the conform these days.
Dupe List tab
Select None in the list type. Then ignore the rest of this tab.
Select Optimize EDL and Include Source Table. Depending on the tapenames you gave to your source reels, select or deselect Convert Tapenames To Numbers.
Select Comments and Effects
Save these settings.
In the top of the EDL Manager window, select which tracks to include in the EDL. Ask who needs what. If picture is conformed/onlined by one department and audio by another, make separate lists (audio may not even want or need EDL's but rather prefer AAF or OMF).
If you have several videotracks, you can select which videotrack you are using in the EDL (click on the V-button). Usually, you make one per track. You could also choose "All V", but that is messy if there is actual track layering involved.
Now, in EDL Manager, there is a button that says Get Current Sequence; do NOT use this.
In stead, in EDL Manager, choose File->Open, then navigate to the bin with your final edit, and open it. If there's more than one sequence in the bin, EDL Manager will ask you which one to open (and you should select the right one). If there's just one sequence, an EDL will instantly be created.
