Hey,

I'm trying to export out an clip list from my sequence so I can deliver an shotlist of all my clips in the timeline to a thirdparty. I'm running an multiclip sequence with 3 sources(25 frames) and need the source filename, source TC and project/sequence TC in the list. I tried exporting an EDL that gave me everything I wanted, but when i look at the end TC on every clip, I see that it adds one extra frame on both source and sequence end-TC:

001  AX       V     C        14:36:01:08 14:36:05:19 00:22:03:18 00:22:08:04

* FROM CLIP NAME: 20161209_143415337_INGEST3_Input3_cam03.mov

002  AX       V     C        14:36:07:06 14:36:12:02 00:22:08:04 00:22:13:00

* FROM CLIP NAME: 20161209_143419975_INGEST3_Input2_cam02.mov

003  AX       V     C        14:36:12:02 14:36:15:14 00:22:13:00 00:22:16:12

* FROM CLIP NAME: 20161209_143418921_INGEST3_Input1_cam01.mov

If i export out the first clip(as an example) in this list with an burned in TC(both source and project/sequence TC) I can see that the end-TC on this clip is 14:36:05:18(source) and 00:22:08:03(project/sequence), even tho the EDL list the end TC as 14:36:05:19(source) and 00:22:08:04(project/sequence). If I look at the info-tab on the selected clip in the timeline, I also see that the end-TC is 14:36:05:18(source) and 00:22:08:03(project/sequence), even to the EDL lists it different.

Why is that? Is this a bug with the EDL export, or is this just how EDL works?

Is there an other way to export out an correct clip list from my Premiere Pro timeline that lists correct TC in/out?

(We have greenscreen footage recorded that we want to match up with the footage from the camera. The greenscreen footage are recorded in an other device with the same TC, but if the Premiere Pro TC is one frame extra in the out-TC it will give us an mismatch when we ask for greenscreen footage from TC: 14:36:01:08 to 14:36:05:19(TC listed from the EDL), when the footage we need ends at 14:36:05:18).

Thanks!

I have very little experience with EDL's, but I've read from other users that multicam sequences need to be flattened for this to work properly.

Bit late to the party but just found this (before posting a bug in EDL export).  PP export is correct above. Think of how you represent one frame (eg that would burn in as 00:00:00:00) - the in would be 00 and the out would be 01. That's the EDL spec. In the olden days, when edits were made with burnin on tape + transcribed manually for us to type in timecodes for *linear* editing, we had to add a frame to every out point to retain sync/accuracy.
