Importing an Edit Decision List (EDL)

You can import an EDL created on a linear editing system and use it to re-create your edited sequences in Final Cut Pro.

After you import an EDL, a sequence appears in the Browser that re-creates the edit sequence of your EDL. If the EDL was exported from a nonlinear system, there's a chance the original clip names will be successfully imported. In all other cases, Final Cut Pro uses the reel number and starting timecode number as the clip name: for example, 0001 01:07:24:10.
