EdlMaxPro is an edit data management application for working with Open Media Framework (Omf), Avid Log Exchange (Ale), and Edit Decision List (Edl) files. It can convert between Omf, Ale, and Edl, and includes all the powerful Edl processing features of EdlMax24.

Menu organization is designed and labeled for intuitive use and readability. Carefully selected output defaults help assure the generation of trouble-free output.

EdlMaxPro automatically detects the format (Edl, Ale, Omf1 / Omf2) on input. Omf reading is robust and reliable, handling Avid Media Composer and Film Composer Omfs. Omf Tree View provides a unique tool for examining Omf contents. Edl parsing performs extensive processing on the incoming Edl, correcting inconsistencies for a reliable Edl load.

EdlMaxPro conversion amongst Omf, Ale, and Edl provides a wide range of workflow possibilities.
