Use the EDL conversion utility to convert an EDL from one frame rate to an EDL of another frame rate. The available conversion scripts depend on the frame rate of the original EDL.
To convert the EDL to the correct format when loaded:
- If necessary, disable the Varicam button.
- In the Load EDL menu, select an EDL, and then enable EDL Conversion.
- In the Conversion option box, select the option that corresponds to the type of conversion you want to apply to the EDL. The conversion scripts that appear in this list depend on the frame rate of the EDL you are loading.
- Click Load to convert and load the EDL.
Depending on the option you select, all timecodes in the EDL are recalculated, and a suffix (such as _60p or _24p) is added to the EDL in the EDL list.
You can also use the EDL Conversion tool to use the Record Timecode as Source Timecode and to capture one tape for the whole show. The original tape names will get converted to comments that you could filter on the Desktop to apply soft effects on.
