Hi all. Subject says it all. We're actually experimenting with converting EDLs in XML format to JSON form for parsing purposes. Posting this for a coworker. Working with multiple workflows and might one day need to send EDLs between FCP 7.0 and Premiere stations.

Having issues with Premiere accepting an FCP XML export. Seems to have a timebase issue, where the main asset is 29.97 but behaves in Premiere as if it's 24fps, i.e. the audio slips 6 frames per second. Either way, is there a secret trick to getting FCP and Premiere EDLs to like each other? Is OMF more universal? More practical for our needs to stick with XML, since that's what we'll need for parsing, in the end. We might be getting a JSON file, then converting to XML and using that as the basis for EDL.

Thanks, Dave.

Why not just open the FCP7 project file directly in Pr? Many have reported success with this approach.

Making an EDL and then converting to XML will throw away a lot of information from the project and any double translation is likely to compound problems.
