Hi All,


I have finished editing and sent of the neg to be cut with a cutting list fom FCP. However, the neg cutter wants an EDL not a Cutting list based on the Key numbers. This is where I'm stuck.

Ok so here is what I've done so far.

Shot 16mm @ 24fps

Transfered at 25fps with FLEx files (camera rolls and timecode) plus burn-ins

Inputed FLEx files into Cinema Tools and batch captured in FCP

Conformed the footage to 24 in Cinema Tools

Edited with sequence settings at DV PAL 48kHz - 24



So I managed to output a cutting list from FCP with the Keycode and checked it with the footage. 99% was ok but 1 frame out in 2 of the 140 shots. Now the Neg cutter wants a timecode EDL.

How do I now output timecode EDL?

Was I right to conform to 24 or shall I reconform to 25?

Please, please help this is for my final work on my MA and can't afford to have it go wrong.


Many thanks in advance,
