XML2EDL lets you convert an XML to an EDL.

I have found that sometimes the source timecode can be 1 or 2 frames wrong. This is not XML2EDL’s fault. It’s the software writing the XML which is doing it wrong.

If you have an XML which is not converted correctly, please send it to nikolai@niwa.nu so I can try to fix it.

XML2EDL is donate-ware. Send me whatever you think it’s worth.
